TIME Magazine has named its annual Person of the Year award to climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
This is what TIME had to say about Thunberg:
“For a moment, it’s as if Thunberg were the eye of a hurricane, a pool of resolve at the center of swirling chaos. In here, she speaks quietly. Out there, the entire natural world seems to amplify her small voice, screaming along with her.
“We can’t just continue living as if there was no tomorrow, because there is a tomorrow,” she says, tugging on the sleeve of her blue sweatshirt. “That is all we are saying.”
It’s a simple truth, delivered by a teenage girl in a fateful moment. The sailboat, La Vagabonde, will shepherd Thunberg to the Port of Lisbon, and from there she will travel to Madrid, where the United Nations is hosting this year’s climate conference.”
The only problem is that this isn’t the person whom everyone was voting for to win Person of the Year.
Take a look below at a screenshot that was taken prior to the end of the voting (top).
I’ve seen many polls like this which were overwhelmingly leaning to one clear winner, only to be overtaken at the last minute. But seriously, almost every single person out of the 82,000 voters at the time of this screenshot had voted for the Hong Kong protestors, yet they expect us to believe that Thunberg won?
According to Fox News,
“She basically does not go to school so that she can do climate protests all the time,” Perino said. “She is achieving, telling kids it’s cool to get famous by not going to school and protesting.”
“Here’s the reason why this choice is made,” co-host Greg Gutfeld said. “It makes white liberal editors and media hacks feel like they’re doing something by reporting it, even though it’s wasteful energy because she’s saving no lives.”
Gutfeld also argued that picking Thunberg “serves as a bait to entice critics to go after a child,” which in turn distracts from Thunberg’s cause.
“That child can falsely call people a murderer with a mob egging her on but if you say, ‘no, she’s being exploited,'” Gutfeld said. “They come after you.”
“The hard truth is that the liberal media only cares about her because she serves their climate change agenda,” co-host Katie Pavlich noted. “If this was a young person who had questions about climate change or is doing other things in a reversal of what the left wants everyone to believe, she wouldn’t be as famous as she is.”
