First, there's always the hypocrisy with these people:
You could be forgiven if you were suckered in by the fact that she's a teenager with disabilities, but she's so sincere. But the mask has started slipping. A couple of weeks ago she let us know that it isn't just about so-called climate change, but also “colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression.” Now she's gone full-on Marxist:
Greta Thunberg told cheering protesters today 'we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall' if they fail to take urgent action on climate change.Scratch a leftist, a totalitarian bleeds.
The Swedish teen activist was addressing the crowd at a Fridays for Future protest in Turin, Italy.
Update: Her explanation of her comment seems reasonable enough, assuming that she was in fact ad libbing:
Critics alleged that the remark, delivered in Turin, Italy, meant she was advocating for violence against world leaders who dodge their responsibilities to fight climate change...
“Yesterday I said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said 'put them against the wall'. That’s Swenglish: “att ställa någon mot väggen” (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone accountable,” she tweeted.
“That’s what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language. But of course I apologise if anyone misunderstood this,” she continued. “I can not enough express the fact that I - as well as the entire school strike movement- are against any possible form of violence. It goes without saying but I say it anyway.”
