Mad Prophetess?


The latest scandal of the How Dare You Say That!?! variety features The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles, who is banned from Fox News, we learn, because he characterized the celebrated “climate activist” Greta Thunberg as “mentally ill.”

He said it while serving as one of those invited talking heads. The other guest immediately cried “how dare you?” 

And censoriousness ensued, with high moral dudgeon and nasty put-downs and the whole shebang.

While I don’t really know much about Miss Thunberg’s mental health going into all this, I do not believe it can be much improved by playing Prophetess on the world stage. 

Which also gives too much cultural power to someone so young. And since power corrupts . . . that’s not good for Greta, and it makes her promoters corruptors.

And that is the point Mr. Knowles appeared to be trying to make. Reasonable people can disagree on the propriety of how “the execrable Michael Knowles” (as his fellow Daily Wire colleagues jovially refer to him) referred to the Swedish prophetess, of course. But it nevertheless remains rather shocking to witness 

  1. activist adults abuse 
  2. one child to 
  3. scare millions of children to 
  4. pressure powerful adults to 
  5. engage in precipitous policy action.

“Adults sometimes like to use children to carry their messages,” vidcaster and Dilbert creator Scott Adams points out, “because it makes it hard for the other side to criticize them without seeming like monsters.”

How can we “listen to the scientists,” as Miss Thunberg recently implored, if the talking is being done by a young teenage non-scientist?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    The people who put this little girl in this position should be arrested for child abuse. Those educators who called for students to leave class and participate in a protest should be summarily fired. Media companies should be ashamed of themselves for using children like this but I hold out zero hope that any of these manipulators will cease doing this to children.
    The only thing I can do is ignore what these children are saying. It is pure propaganda. They are reading a script – nothing more.

    The left is extremely adept at using children as symbols to push their agenda. They did it with David Hogg to push gun confiscation, now they’re doing the same with Greta for the scam of climate doom. They can do this because the young are altruistic empty vessels and are easily indoctrinated and manipulated.

    When you think about it, these kids are almost as ignorant as Hollywood actors.

    She is a mentally ill clone, created by abusive parents and a Progressive Socialist Education system…released from the Axelotl tanks and loosed on the world.
