Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Here is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year:
Time’s Person of the Year is a 17 year-old girl who:
– Was born in to great white privilege in her racially-homogeneous country of Sweden;
– Has lived a prosperous and privileged life provided to her by her neglectful, attention-seeking parents, both of whom are performers and radical leftist activists;
– Has been used and abused by every adult who has ever held influence over her life;
– Is currently being held up as a poster child by the radical climate alarmist community in order to advance its globalist/socialist political agenda;
– Is fond of constantly lecturing all adults who will listen to her angry hectoring that they have “stolen my childhood” despite her prosperous life of white privilege; and
– Became famous by hitching a ride on a very wealthy billionaire’s sailboat to float across the Atlantic to the U.S. early this year.
Here are Time’s stated criteria for awarding its annual Person of the Year designation:
“Person of the Year (called Man of the Year or Woman of the Year until 1999) is an annual issue of the United States news magazine Time that features and profiles a person, a group, an idea, or an object that “for better or for worse… has done the most to influence the events of the year“.
Think about that for a moment: 2019 is a year hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong citizens have risked their very lives taking to the streets to protest the Communist government in China. It is a year in which similar numbers of Iranians have taken similar risks in defying the ruling Mullahs in their own country. Hundreds of these ordinary people have lost their lives as a result of their courageous advocacy for simple human dignity and freedoms.
2019 is a year in which Democrat congressman Adam Schiff successfully held up the business of the entire federal government for months with a clown show, Soviet-style impeachment process. What about him, and what about the fake “whistleblower” – Eric Ciaramella – who served as the catalyst for the entire process?
2019 is a year in which Donald Trump and his Administration created the most vibrant and booming economy on the face of the earth, while at the same time hamstringing China’s hegemony with crushing tariffs. What about him?
2019 is a year in which the rousing success of the brilliant men and women who run the U.S. oil and gas industry created the conditions that will allow the United States to ultimately completely disengage from wars in the Middle East, other than to protect Israel. What about them?
If you have to be politically correct and want to give it to some climate alarmist, what about Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? Unlike Greta – who just admitted to the climate conference in Madrid that she her fellow alarmists “have achieved nothing” – AOC’s introduction of the “Green New Deal” has already influenced the policy positions of literally every man and woman running for the 2020 Democrat Party presidential nomination. Love her or hate her, AOC has, unlike Greta, actually done a lot to “influence the events of the year” in a real, substantive manner.
I hold no animosity towards little Greta. I actually feel a great deal of empathy and sadness for her, since she is a child who has basically been used shamelessly by every adult who she has ever had significant contact with.
But she is a poster child – a cute face for the globalist socialist movement to use on its “climate change” ads. And the saddest part about her is that, once her childish cuteness has worn off – and that will not take very long given her constant scowling – she will be completely discarded by these people and forgotten within days.
The best thing well-intentioned people can do for Greta is to pray for her future.
That is all.
