We got another one. And this one is so ridiculous that I’d be appalled if someone actually believed it.
If you haven’t heard of the incredibly inspirational 16-year-old Swedish activist with Asperger’s, Greta Thunberg, then you’ve been living under a rock! She was just seen this past Monday giving a speech at the United Nations, stressing how climate change is happening and it is imperative that legislation acknowledge this and take action. Although she is setting precedents as a youth leader, she has received speculation and hate from those who doubt the validity of climate change. Several politicians are hopping on this train of bashing her by saying she is spreading propaganda and is a Nazi.
Facebook user, Jack A. Schulman, said that, “She deserves an Academy Award not a Nobel for impersonating Heidi looking Greta Thunberg, a fictional Character before the UN yesterday, a fake climate activist, a child actor age 15 and 1/2 screaming ‘How dare you!’ straight out of ‘Streetcar named Desire!’.” Honestly, he doesn’t even make sense, but he was claiming that she wasn’t really an activist but was an actress by the name of Estella Renee.
Snopes.com had our back and proved that this was a lie, and Thunberg isn’t lying about who she is. She’s really just someone who wants the best for this planet and is doing what she can to achieve that. Y’all, just remember that you can’t forget to check your facts and do your research. It pays off!
