Germany’s AfD turns on Greta Thunberg as it embraces climate denial
3 replies, posted
Germany’s rightwing populists are embracing climate change denial as the latest topic with which to boost their electoral support, teaming up with scientists who claim hysteria is driving the global warming debate and ridiculing the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg as “mentally challenged” and a fraud.
The AfD’s focus on climate change has increased since it entered the Bundestag in autumn 2017. It has added a sceptical voice to the rising number of parliamentary debates on the topic and concentrated its opposition specifically on the scandal over diesel car emissions and plans to phase out brown coal.
A joint investigation by Greenpeace Unearthed and the counter-extremism organisation the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) has shown a surge in AfD digital communication on climate issues. While climate change barely got a mention on its social media channels when the AfD was first founded in 2013, it mentioned the topic on its channels about 300 times in 2017-18, and that has tripled over the past year to more than 900, with its main focus on Greta.
What the fuck? Have they got no shame? She's smarter than them.
Because simply denying climate change isn't enough, obviously as a political party you need to dogpile a fucking teenager too. Bunch of cunts.
Reminds me of Crowder. It's really obvious that the alt-right' claim that people baselessly throw around the word Nazi as an insult is yet more projecting on their part.
