Fr. Tom Collins' brief comment on Greta Thunberg Gets Me Thinking...

The left crucified Nick Sandmann, but
Greta is untouchable. 
Fr. Collins sent a very short comment yesterday morning about Greta Thunberg and those using her
to advance the climate change meme:
It is interesting how so many, who vehemently assert that Greta Thunberg had no right to be born, are now asserting that her voice must be heard and taken seriously by those who condescended to allow her to be born. Having already been born, she now proclaims that other pre-born children must be denied the right to live before they can accelerate global warming by their presence on our planet.
On target as usual! Thank you, Father.

The Greta Thunberg phenomena is certainly puzzling. Here we have a young girl, who appears even younger than her 16 years, being paraded around as a climate expert.


Frankly, it reminds me of hospitals that do abortions using precious preemies saved by their neo-natal units to raise funds. Cute babies are so much more likely to touch heartstrings than dismembered, bloody babies in a bucket.

So here we have politicians once again using a cute little kid, albeit one who has a mental disorder. (That is how the medical community describes Aspergers which is on the autism spectrum.)

I can just see the left sitting around saying, "What can we do to magnify our myth about climate change. Nobody really cares about the science. But we need a headline grabber. Hey, let's have a children's crusade (Oops can't use that word.) movement using a really cute little girl who's angry and crying about how deprived she is because the world is going to end in 12 years unless we're put in charge."

"Yup, that'll do it! She can talk about being robbed of her childhood while she's paraded around the world. Get 

Enter Greta on cue. 

Got the checkoff list:
  •  Cute? Yup. In fact she looks especially cute when she's got that angry look on her face. 

  • Sympathetic? Yup. She could be the poster kid for high achieving kids with Aspergers. (Can't call it a mental disorder without the left coming down on you like a ton of bricks like they did to Michael Knowles even though the DSM calls it a "mental disorder." Oh, and Greta's mommy wrote a book about her condition.)
When she cries, she just tugs at our heartstrings.
  • Click bait? Absolutely. When someone Googles her name, they'll get hundreds of millions of "hits." (280 million as of today in fact)

Greta is making the rounds of talk shows and is now a world traveler having visited Washington, D.C. and the United Nations. Now that sounds to me like a lot of fun for a 16-year-old. She and David Hogg should get together and compare notes. What an exciting life a crisis can offer if you're on the right side of it, unlike poor Nick Sandmann and his school chums.

Well, at least Greta was allowed to be born as Fr. Collins points out.

Pray for all the kids heralded by a left-wing media that hates children, advocates their murder, and only welcomes them when they can be used. Like Jazz and Amazing Desmond and David Hogg and Greta.

Politicians are famous for kissing babies. On the left, they are also notorious for killing them!

Let's pray for all the children who get caught up in this bizarre and evil age. Millstones are waiting for those who formed them in their pathetic image.

Thanks for this post. So tragic and devilish for this obviously sick child to have been manipulated by powerful and Godless world leaders in the service of their profane agendas.
Every time I see the angry and contorted features of this poor child I am resolved to say a short ejaculatory prayer to Our Lady, Mother of us all, that she will bring peace to her. Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Really, the very personification of the term "useful idiot."

To be clear, on complicated matters at the intersection of science and public policy, we are told to listen to, if not lionize, (i) a non-citizen (ii) minor who has likely not yet taken courses in some combination of biology, chemistry, physics, and economics and (iii) who has almost certainly not taken a course in American government.

Mere anger is no sound basis for public policy. Actually, it's not really a sound basis for anything.
