That's cool. Though still not as great or funny as when Bruce Jenner won woman of the year some years back. I suppose it was a very very very slow year for women that year.

And I suppose its been a very slow and very lame few years, if not few century's.

But if all these people want to fight climate change? Stick around, they may get there chance one day. I for one want to see how they all do.

Though I think the record on that of humans or any other species VS climate change is somewhere around. Oh lets say!

climate change...in the gazillions... VS... Every other species that has walked or swam or crawled... 0.

That's like a 100% failure rate.

Them's not good odds at all. My money is on climate change for a clean sweep once again if and when it comes down to it.

So Greta Thunberg person of the year,
She is wheeled out to scream and shout at world leaders at the UN about only having 10 years left to live because of climate change, While flying around the planet to preach to people about Climate Change.

There should be like a list of all the climate denier idiots who refuse to believe science and choose to believe to big oil, republican stooges and Trump.

That way when the SHTF, we can save the smart people and just yell back at these guys, "it will be ok, Just tell the climate, the change is fake".
Then when natural selection does it's job, we can have that moment for them where we have "thoughts and prayers". lol

Pick up a map, look at where those "Big Oil" headquarters are, where their corporate offices live, where a good share of "Republican stooges" live and own vacation homes, and where Trump just changed his permanent address to and where he will move his family to in January of 2025... THEY'RE ALL IN COASTAL AREAS, Einstein. Go ahead, keep gobbling up lies told to you by your moronic globalist shills like Gretta. Bottom line, the elites you love to hate and accuse of knowing AGW is real are paying premium prices to live on coastlines... either they're suicidal or, more likely, they recognize the Gretta's of the world and their celebrants are full of snip.

We need to understand that Time person of the year has nothing to do with how good a person is. It's more about the world influence they have had during the year. We need to look at who has been in the past.

Joseph Stalin twice as 40 to 60 million were killed by his word alone
Adolf Hitler, nothing to add here
Chiang Kai-shek and a number of other Chinese leaders that some cost millions of lives
Richard Nixon two years in a roll to follow up with the judge that ordered him to turn over the tapes
King Faisal because he caused the oil crises in the 70s
Ayatollah Khomeini, boy that hasn't been good
Yuri Andropov, hard line Soviet leader


You all know Trump was in the running again after winning it once already, but lets look at the last few years..
Journalist...ya....
#metoo, another big winner...lol

So my one big question to all of you is why is anyone surprised, upset, concerned with 2019's pick?

And who didn't know by now that Time Magazine is an internationalist publication?

These new "internationalists" are the same old communists.

Its crazy. They think she is a puppet with a team of handlers and of course George Soros because he's the right's boogeyman and every "leftist" movement worldwide is him😅😅😅. Talk about needing a reality check.


Speaking of a reality check....

So Greta has accomplished all of this by herself?



Yeah, it's hard for people like you to believe a child could achieve this all by themselves! So, conspiracies and BS are made up, just so people can sleep at night and think they are not total failures!

Not to mention There is a few days a year Time is relevant again... And then alas, you never see someone carrying a magazine, you don't see any Time articles sourced by other articles, or even on ATS, and you literally don't even hear people speak of it.

They had two options.

Go with Trump, because he's clearly made the most news of anyone the past year. Do that, and people would flip out not realizing that nuance and think they were praising him, and they're done.

Go with Greta and virtue signal. Has she really made an impact on the world? Other than triggering a few, and having a cult praise a kid, no, no she hasn't.

I also heard a rumor there is basically one person who picks who goes on the cover, a higher up at Time. So in today's entertainment media climate, they probably just go with whatever they think will sell more copies... Too meal mouthed to risk creating a real conversation.

Not really by the criteria the person of the year is supposed to be... Though that model hasn't really been followed of recently anyways.


Person of the Year (called Man of the Year or Woman of the Year until 1999)[1] is an annual issue of the United States news magazine Time that features and profiles a person, a group, an idea, or an object that "for better or for worse... has done the most to influence the events of the year".[2]

Has she done more than anyone to influence the events of the year?

I don't think so.

As if she doesn't have any feelings of her own?

But hey lets glorify that Sandmann kid. Who did nothing but pull a face. Woo hoo for disrespectful teens.
Cant have these thinking doing teens showing them up.

I don't see how he was disrespectful when someone got in his face.

But it really doesn't matter. Society shouldn't go after kids, whether it be Sandman, or Greta. We probably shouldn't hoist them to a level that creates an environment where they fall either.

I don't see that he needed to be heralded as some kind of hero here either but there you go.
At least Greta has done something. She has an actual cause.
Other than being obstinate.
