It pays big time to be a leftist teen activist.
Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish girl the left has turned into their poster child for climate change fear-mongering, has been awarded one million kronor ($103,000) for her climate change activism.
The money is part of her being named one of four recipients of the Right Livelihood Award, which is also called the “Alternative Nobel Prize.”
The international award was established in 1980 to “honor and support courageous people solving global problems.” Thunberg was announced as one of the winners on Wednesday at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Stockholm, Sweden. The official ceremony will take place in December.
“Thunberg is the powerful voice of a young generation that will have to bear the consequences of today’s political failure to stop climate change. Her resolve to not put up with the looming climate disaster has inspired millions of peers to also raise their voices and demand immediate climate action,” the award’s official site says about Thunberg.
“I’m deeply grateful for being one of the recipients of this great honour. But of course, whenever I receive an award, it is not me who is the winner. I am part of a global movement of school children, youth and adults of all ages who have decided to act in defence of our living planet. I share this award with them. The Right Livelihood Award is a huge recognition for Fridays For Future and the climate strike movement. Thank you so very much!” Thunberg said in response to the award.
Thunberg made headlines for sailing to New York on a yacht, a trip that was a little more harmful to the environment than she likes to let on. She came to New York to speak about climate change. Her speech was applauded by leftists, but it sounded more like a teenager just coming up with an excuse not to go to school.
“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you have come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams, my childhood with your empty words,” she said. It can’t be too wrong considering Thunberg is now cashing big fat checks, but don’t worry, this is definitely all about the environment, folks.
To give a little more context to Thunberg’s great and noble work, she goes around saying she refuses to fly, but her headline-making yacht trip included several plane rides for others involved.
The left has used Thunberg’s age to their advantage. Those who have dared to push back against her rhetoric have been viciously attacked as bullies. There were no such arguments made by the media when Nick Sandmann was being viciously destroyed by pundits everywhere.
