"Its about overthrowing the patriachary and capitalism that has ruined our world. The climate is our vehicle to bring about that change" -Greta Thunberg
meanwhile in Hong Kong they are fighting to there death for capitalism and the freedoms it brings.
@AverageIdiot, we should send Greta to China.
@AverageIdiot, what does it say about things that South Park is more in touch than Time Magazine?
@Hot Coffee, she is owned by China, that’s why even though they are by far the biggest climate ‘offender,’ whose emissions went up ~200% in the last decade while ours declined by 10%, she dosnt criticize them one bit
@Hot Coffee, China doesn’t deserve anything that bad
@BigJohnson86, China is literally running concentration camps where they take organs from people to sell them.
@I Are Lebo, yeah but do they really deserve to have to put up with her?
@BigJohnson86, they deserve a thousand of her
@Joeyc1, I think she’s just being used and doesn’t actually know anything about the global climate science. But it wouldn’t surprise me if she was being bankrolled by China.
@BigJohnson86, yes. We should lock them in a room together and destroy the key.
Yeah the times did this because the owner recently, as in the last couple of years, made a major deal with a company owned by China that will allow his other businesses access to China’s economy.
@ThatGuyx79, I was about to say. Can't go criticizing old Winnie the Pooh if it hurts your bottom line
I don’t understand why she got a platform. I’ve known lots of dramatic teenagers with the same opinions who would gladly share them with you. What makes her special, the accent?
@Snarfel Burger, she's the daughter of an opera singer and an actor. She's loaded and has connections
@JewishXenu, now it makes more sense
@Snarfel Burger, it is a tactic made popular by nazi germany to use a young girl, usually with some sort of visually apparent disorder ( In Greta’s case fetal alcohol syndrome) as the main vessel for your message, because then when people go to criticize the idea they are ‘attacking a child’
@Snarfel Burger, the fact that she has psychological disorders. So they can use that as a shield to deflect criticism away. Also her parents are rich and well connected.
@Snarfel Burger, her privilege is what gets her noticed. It’s ironic, really.
@Joeyc1, that was my headline when they trotted her out on stage: “Eco-terrorists use emotionally unstable child as human shield”
@big freedom, “how dare you?!”
Time has no credibility, so this doesn’t really matter. Remember that they also selected a man for Woman of the Year.
Even if you buy into the whole ‘Caitlyn Jenner is a WOMAN’, then they selected for Woman of the Year someone who hadn’t even been a woman for a whole year yet.
@I Are Lebo, they are political activists. Definitely nothing even close to resembling journalists.
They get to be activists, that’s up to them, but they should never again be able to claim journalism or integrity.
@big freedom, the journalist is an extinct species. Clickbait authors and ideologue activists have taken over.
I really can't stand that idiot. She's faker than a pair of Aldidas trainers. I care about the environment but she makes me wanna strangle a turtle with fishing line.
@Twatasaurusrex, he means HUG a turtle! Forgive him Spoons, he knows not what he says! *Sweats*
@Twatasaurusrex, to be honest, she might believe everything that she is speaking of. For all she knows from getting indoctrinated from schools and left wing media she literally is saving the world. Only her head obviously, that’s what’s sad about kids growing up right now.
@Mr poopy bunghole, the thing is that bullshìtting, fake, còck juggling thunder cùnt media whòre brings out a rage in me so primal I could strangle a panda with 1 hand. And I love pandas
Why would she be proud to win an award also won by Hitler, Stalin(twice), and Jimmy Carter?
That poll was posted by TODAY to see who people thought should get the recognition, not an official measuring of votes for the actual title.
There’s a vote for time person of the year?
The one thing i dont understand is everyones anger towards greta when time magazine is the one who is responsible for choosing. Or the hate in general, she’s just an activist who got a lot more media attention than most people. I agree the hong kong protesters were snubbed, still sad seeing adults on the internet completely berate her though.
@Kirisute Gomen, she’s a human shield. I don’t hate her, I hate her parents for indoctrinating her and the UN for giving her a platform and the media for fawning over her... it’s not her fault, but I wish I didn’t have to know about her.
@big freedom, i still don’t think its a justification for the hate, just seems like a step backwards in regard of climate change. Not trying to argue or anything i just get baffled sometimes at how the internet reacts the certain things.
Who is she
@sgc6610, no one who matters
