There are no more hypocritical people on this green earth than Democrats and their sycophantic propagandists in the “mainstream media,” as CNN hack extraordinaire Chris “Fredo” Cuomo proved again this week.
You may recall a young Swedish teen named Greta Thunberg, who blasted onto the international scene a few months back with an impassioned speech at the United Nations in September. In that speech, young Greta blamed the world’s leaders for “climate change” and accused them of ‘stealing her dreams’ and literally killing people with technological progress.
“My message is that we’ll be watching you. 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 all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!” she blared.
“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”
Now, it’s easy for people to become inflamed and angry at this young lady for her remarks, but we have to remember that she’s literally been brainwashed by Left-wing climate lunatics who have been predicting the world’s demise since the 1960s via overpopulation and starvation, global cooling, global warming, and now “climate change.”
But as a young person approaching adulthood, and having put herself ‘out there’ for the world to see, Greta makes herself vulnerable to criticism — and there’s nothing wrong with refuting her.
Unless, of course, you’re some hack hypocrite ‘journalist’ like Chris Cuomo.
The CNN host took issue with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin who responded facetiously to a reporter’s question about Greta’s call for the public and private sector to divest from using fossil fuels — the energy source that powers the global economy, like it or not.
“Is she the chief economist or who is she? I’m confused,” Mnuchin said to the reporter during the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, last week.
“Greta Thunberg,” the reporter reiterated.
Mnunchin responded, “It’s a joke!” adding, “After she goes and studies economics in college, she can go back and explain that to the rest of us.”
Well, that was too much ‘retort’ for Cuomo who took to Twitter to say, “Why do these trumpers think it is ok to go at a kid?”
Tone deaf, to say the least, and very hypocritical.
For you see, Fredo was nowhere to be found when his network was doxxing and trashing 16-year-old Nick Sandmann, a Catholic high schooler from Covington, Ky., who was confronted by Native American Leftist activist Nathan Phillips who banged a drum in the kid’s face.
Because Nick had a “Make America Great Again” hat on and was smiling at Phillips, he was attacked, smeared and libeled by one mainstream media network after another — including CNN.
But in the end, it was Sandmann who got the last laugh — literally and economically.
“Contrary to its ‘Facts First’ public relations ploy, CNN ignored the facts and put its anti-Trump agenda first in waging a 7-day media campaign of false, vicious attacks against Nicholas, a young boy who was guilty of little more than wearing a souvenir Make America Great Again cap,” said the lawsuit, which was filed in May.
The Sandmanns, who are represented by attorneys L. Lin Wood and Todd V. McMurtry, also sued the Washington Post for $250 million and NBCUniversal for $275 million.
But according to Fredo Cuomo, attacking him is fine; just leave the climate change chick alone.
