"The reason why so many grown ass men hate Greta Thunberg is because she represents everything they hate listening to; women, children, people with disabilities, science, and just people who are smarter than them in general"

(the author of this was harassed off twitter so let this stand here)

Who paid for the multi-million-dollar yacht? Why is she hanging with a foundation run by Melinda (Mrs. Bill) Gates?

The whole goddamn thing stinks like hell, if you ask me.

@uint8_t It's almost as if all the Global North environmental NGO's called up Central Casting and said "Send us a sweet, white, golden-haired adorable kid who looks like that 'Elsa' girl from 'Frozen'..."

@uint8_t well as far as i'm concerned they hate her because of her double standards

@maximilia thanks for this nice gotcha! article with traces of truth on a rightwinger news site.

Haters will call Greta a hypocrite regardless of what she is doing, and sailing across the Atlantic was definitely a good publicity stunt.

@uint8_t well would you be so kind then to explain what bothers you?

also lol for "publicity stunt"

@maximilia @uint8_t side question not related to Thunberg, who is running this website?

> The political landscape of Europe is changing. New parties and movements grow from below, propelled by enthusiastic grassroots. Parties like Alternative für Deutschland, Front National and Freiheitliche Partei Österreich gain momentum, in spite of harsh opposition from the establishment and harassment from street thugs.

I'd like to know names

@maximilia I'd like to know who is reporting and where they are coming from. Site seems to be hosted in the Czech Republic but there are not indicators about who is the editor or publisher.

They also do not link to their sources and I can't find the information they refer to.

Pretty suspicious to me.

@saper i found another article, which states the same. it's german, unfortunately, but from a more "trustworthy" organization if you want to put it like this:

@uint8_t @maximilia oh you know, just those impossibly high standards people hold anyone who speaks out about something to when they don't want to admit they should change

@walruslifestyle @uint8_t you call flying once instead of flying multiple times impossibly high standard?
@uint8_t I'm now gonna go pollute the environment because I hate women and minorities so much.

@uint8_t I don't know who Greta Thunberg is but I think I probably would like her if I did

@uint8_t I just don't like tone she used. Her speech sounds like emotional naci.

She's just a Mentally Disabled child used as a mascot for her radical parents agenda I doubt she understands what she is talking about or is capable to research for herself, if she would be allowed, the facts she is spouting

@uint8_t I think someone hates me for similar reasons. No matter how hard he trys to memorize computer facts, he can not compete with a Girl who is fascinated by the subject. Worse for him, No matter how he tries to "brown nose" the professors, they still prefere someone who takes an interest.
