During an interview with the Washington Post on Monday, Far-left activist Greta Thunberg slammed Democrat President Joe Biden, saying it’s “strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader” on climate issues.
Thunberg, who is known for making alarmist claims about climate change, made the comments when she was asked if she was “inspired by any of the world leaders.”
“If you call him a leader — I mean, it’s strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing,” Thunberg responded.
“The U.S. is actually expanding fossil fuel infrastructure,” she said. “Why is the U.S. doing that? It should not fall on us activists and teenagers who just want to go to school to raise this awareness and to inform people that we are actually facing an emergency.”
“People ask us, ‘What do you want?’ ‘What do you want politicians to do?’ And we say, first of all, we have to actually understand what is the emergency. We are trying to find a solution of a crisis that we don’t understand,” she admitted. “For example, in Sweden, we ignore — we don’t even count or include more than two-thirds of our actual emissions. How can we solve a crisis if we ignore more than two-thirds of it? So it’s all about the narrative. It’s all about, what are we actually trying to solve? Is it this emergency, or is it this emergency?”
Thunberg is known for making doomsday claims about climate change without evidence. For example, in her book “No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference,” Thunberg claims “Around 2030 we will be in a position to set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control that will lead to the end of our civilization as we know it.”
Additionally, as noted by the Daily Wire, Thunberg claimed in a 2019 op-ed, “Fossil fuels are literally choking the life from us. That action must be powerful and wide-ranging. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”
And in a 2019 rant at the United Nations, Thunberg said, “Yet, you all come to us young people for hope, how dare you. 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 mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.”

United States Sees Highest Murder Rate in 25 Years
Crime has been spiking at an aberrant rate, hitting the highest murder rate in 25 years. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are among the large liberal cities shattering records for 2021 murder reports.
Data analyst Jeff Asher examined FBI data, reported by the New York Times, which shows the 2021 murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people. That is a mere .5 percent lower than the 1997 murder rate of 7.4
Rising crime rates have prompted policy makers to focus on the increasing mental health and homeless crises sweeping the nation. Some say that is not helpful for a full and comprehensive approach.
Former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir said there is more to be looked at such as “cancel culture and wok mentality that assumes the police are racist and brutal.”
Not only that, liberal policy makers have been incredibly soft on crime, as well as unsupportive of law enforcement. “If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they’re not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner” Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.
The murder of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer in broad daylight as she worked at a luxury furniture store in Los Angeles last week points to a huge failure in our justice system. The young UCLA student was knifed to death by a homeless man, Shawn Laval Smith, who not only has a lengthy rap sheet from across the country, but “was currently free on a $1,000 bond from a misdemeanor arrest in Los Angeles County in October, 2020, sheriff’s records show” reports the Daily mail.
Smith has also been arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. He was also free on a $50,000 bond from Charleston, South Carolina, after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in 2019.
Murders in Los Angeles last year reached 397, the highest it’s been in 15 years. The NYPD reported its highest number of murders in ten years, with 488.
