Con Jr smears Greta Thunberg with Nord Stream pipeline sabotage

The same guy who sicced rabid Texas nutjobs in trucks on Kamala Harris’ campaign bus wants to give the treatment to a kind-hearted young woman via his daddy’s bankrupt social media.



Donald Trump Jr shares meme accusing Greta Thunberg of Nord Stream pipeline sabotage

Donald Trump Jr shared a meme accusing Greta Thunberg of being behind the Nord Stream pipeline explosions, echoing a conspiracy theory that has been picked up in conservative circles in the last week since the natural gas lines erupted.

The meme, which shows the young climate activist photoshopped in front of Nord Stream with explosives strapped around one of the pipelines, was shared by the former president’s son on Truth Social on Thursday night.

“I could be wrong but my understanding is this is not photo shopped,” wrote Mr Trump Jr alongside the meme, which has since gained traction on Twitter.

Greta Thunberg is a great human being.



Sad to be a Trump.



Really sad.

It's ridiculous, it's cuckoo.

And it's madness that they have so much influence over the country.

Excerpt…

While the US has outrightly denied any involvement in the leaks, conservatives in the country have begun picking up the Russian line that the West played a role.

“Blow up the Nord Stream pipelines? OK, we’ve entered a new phase, one in which the United States is directly at war with the largest nuclear power in the world,” said the Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson on his prime-time programme this week.

Echoing those claims was far-right activist and radio talk show host Charlie Kirk, who suggested that the rupture could’ve been staged by the US as part of an alleged “midterm election operation”.

“If this was an act of the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA -- which, again, is just speculation. It’s very important. How does that get us closer to peace? Is this a potential midterm election operation?” asked the host before noting that he was just “asking a question”.

“The intelligence agency … they’re guilty until proven innocent in this situation. They’re going to have to prove to us it wasn’t them given the evidence that they were, basically, saber-rattling and threatening that they were going to do it,” he said before noting that he “prayed” it wasn’t the CIA and preferred that it was instead “Greenpeace”.

Donald Trump Jr. made a dick joke to show his disdain for the redacted FBI affidavit that triggered the search of Mar-a-Lago, but he seems to be saying in the process he doesn't care if national secrets or the lives of people mentioned in the redactions are compromised.

And here comes a teen-ages who sets the planet’s rich and powerful to shame.

How the oil industry has spent billions to control the climate change conversation

Activists say Democratic climate proposals won’t be able to pass until lawmakers put a stop to oil companies trying to rebrand themselves


by Emily Holden
The Guardian, January 8, 2920

America’s oil companies are trying to rebrand themselves as part of the solution to the climate crisis, launching a campaign to counter top Democrats’ proposals to rapidly cut pollution from the power plants and cars that run on the industry’s petroleum and natural gas.

They say natural gas – a fossil fuel that emits heat-trapping carbon dioxide – is helping to slow climate disruption by providing an alternative to coal.

“We’re taking our message of energy progress to every corner of the country to show just what’s at stake in Washington and in state capitols around the country,” said Mike Sommers, CEO of the oil trade group the American Petroleum Institute (API), on a press call announcing the plan.

The campaign is part of a strategy in which the oil industry has funneled billions of dollars into its defense, threatening to outpace climate action advocates, say frustrated environmental activists who are increasingly calling on Democrats in Congress to take a tougher line on the sector.

Snip…

Geoffrey Supran, a research associate who studies global warming politics at Harvard University, is urging House committees to demand more information from oil companies about their influence over public policy. Supran said obtaining corporate documents is “one of the most important actions Congress could take to address the climate crisis”.

“The reality is that as much as we know about fossil fuel interests’ denial and delay, we’ve really found those skeletons in the closet just by looking through a tiny keyhole – everything we know is based on just a few hundred documents scrounged from various sources,” Supran said. “From my perspective every indication of this evidence is once that closet door gets blown open, the skeletons are going to come tumbling out.”

16. Fascists bully those who oppose them, including women and children.

Who is afraid of Greta Thunberg?

As the world starts to take note of the teen climate activist, her critics have launched increasingly personal attacks.


by Andrew Mitrovica
Al Jazeera columnist, 1 Sep 2019

Excerpt…

She disdains celebrity. She makes no claim to heroism. She rebuffs efforts to idolise her. She isn’t calculating or preoccupied with fame or ego. There is no artifice about her. She speaks plainly, without affectation or embroidery.

In words and deeds, Thunberg is the embodiment of philosopher Howard Zinn’s admonition: “We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can quietly become a power no government can suppress, a power that can transform the world.”

Of course, the marauding swarm of vitriolic right-wing climate-change deniers see Thunberg – not how the prophetic Zinn envisioned her – but as a tiny, pretentious zealot who threatens the existing order. Their order. Their comforts. Their traditional “way of life”.

De rigueur, they have set out to discredit and, if possible, to destroy Thunberg with their, by now, familiar and crass modus operandi.

They have mocked her. They have belittled her. They have denigrated her. They have insulted her. They have dismissed her. They have questioned her motives. They have suggested she is anti-democratic. They have, in the fetid recesses of the internet, even threatened her.

I Googled “Why are people afraid of Greta Thunberg?” and got an eyeful. Of course, Big Oil, Rupert Murdoch, and all the assorted and monied toadies are sore afraid.

When the libel is done for malice, that’s another thing. A good lawyer might make the case.
