The Hypocrisy of the Climate Strikes Across America Exposed as a Leftist Power Grab that Exploits Children
Fox News host Tucker Carlson referred to teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg and others as “a kind of human shield” the left uses to “demand power.”
Speaking on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” about the day’s events at the United Nations climate conference, particularly Thunberg’s “How dare you!” speech to world leaders, Carlson lamented how environmentalism has strayed from a movement to preserve and protect nature to a power grab for the left.
Environmentalism was once “about nature and preserving and protecting it,” Carlson said, but now the point is “very different.”
“The point now is political power,” said the Fox News host. “You gin up a crisis and you demand the population submits to your will, or else. If you do that, you don’t need to fight fair or acknowledge democracy or even make a rational case for your position. You do whatever it takes. You’ll even use children if it helps.”
