“We have to listen to the voices of those who are being oppressed and those who are fighting for freedom and for justice,” she blathered on stage in Amsterdam after having invited a Palestinian woman up to stand next to her.
And: “There can be no climate justice without international solidarity.”
This isn’t her first such foray, either.
Two weeks after the Oct. 7 Hamas atrocities, Thunberg was front and center declaring “The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice and freedom for Palestinians.”
Aside from the ugly moral tone-deafness her words display, there’s a couple of big, troubling questions at their heart.
First: Why is a neuroatypical teen deemed to have such vast moral authority in the first place?
It’s certainly not her ideas.
Thunberg’s plainly repeating the propaganda she’s been surrounded with by her euro-lefty parents.
If anything, given Israel’s intense, high-tech stewardship of its own land and water — a huge chunk of its water supply is derived from reclaimed waste and desalination; its per-capita carbon emissions have plunged over the past decade — you’d think Thunberg would be backing the Jewish state.
