Mobilising our children for your propaganda – disgusting!

My grandchildren were off school to “protest” climate change.

FFS!

The BBC puked children spouting words put into their mouths by adults.

This whole event was a propaganda activity coordinated by Youth Strike 4 Climate.

I think its totally and absolutely disgusting and should NEVER have been permitted.

Its obscene.

My grandchildren are not there to further your cause. What they know about Climate Change is what has been put into their heads by their schools. They can decide to join your protest, when they are old enough to think for themselves, and not regurgitate propaganda like small programmed robots.

Shame on you all.

This article on the BBC (God help us) news page says “Since then (began with 15-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg), tens of thousands of children across Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Australia have been inspired to hold their own demonstrations. Link

Yup.

We know who “inspired” them!

The group, which helped coordinate the protests, has four key demands:

  • The government should declare a “climate emergency”
  • It should also inform the public about the seriousness of the situation
  • The national curriculum should be reformed to include “the ecological crisis”
  • The age of voting should be lowered to 16 so younger people can be involved in decision-making around environmental issues.

Yup.

How low can they go?

Nice links for smokers and vapers

Such skill and knowledge in the writings of these two men is worth sharing.

For smokers read this answer I found by Gustavo Guardiola on Quora – it’s great.

How is it fair that during work, smokers get to take a break to smoke but don’t have to make up the time they missed?

For vapers read Clive Bates on The Vaping Epidemic (in young people in the USA) (Long but worth the read)

The great American youth vaping epidemic. Really?

Enjoy

 

Do not read this. It’s only MY opinion….and you probably won’t like it.

This is the new holocaust memorial proposed for London.

David Adjaye’s design for the £50m Holocaust memorial in London’s Victoria Tower Gardens Adjaye’s proposal includes an underground learning centre to ‘immerse visitors in the historical content’.

I ask why we have gone over the top about the Jewish Holocaust? What actual link is there to Britain? We didn’t do it. We didn’t do anything to stop it either, except finish a war that had already started before any Jewish Holocaust.

In the process we killed over 60 million of our OWN people. 60 million.

There seems to be only one holocaust that we ever promote constantly. “Lest we forget” they say.

What about all the others we did nothing about? What about the ones ongoing now?

Are they not on our conscience too? Where is the education about them? Where are the monuments? Where is the grief? Where is the guilt?

“Lest we forget”
