If a journalist is amongst people planning an attack you go to the police..

So using that logic, if a reporter, journalist, or documentarian is with gang members who are currently planning something, if they are with someone who is buying illegal narcotics, or if they travel to a country and stand by as people are being executed or slaughtered - are they all guilty for being near?

EDIT: Also Salon is literally no different than the dregs of Breitbart. You are beyond a parody at this point.

Nah, his tag should be "ANTIFA's Bitch" as that is all he is.

Knowing and watching someone or people plot an attack and you do nothing might not be illegal but it's a bad choice .. and morally wrong. His paper knew that and cut ties with him.

I actually want a tag so I'll take whatever I get.

Is this the new "you can just use the ignore button" plea? Unfortunately, some folks in the audience still aren't clued in to your propaganda so it's helpful to call you out every once in a while. It's called accountability, remember?
You made a conscious choice to reply back to me , no one forced your hand. And spreading propaganda on what gaming forum .. I never knew you decided to write sci-fi.

I need Gwyneth Paltrow's new "Psychic Vampire repellant spray + crystal healing" product to protect me from all these narcissists who join these cults. Fake kid. Fake ideology. Fake outrage. And you're the problem if you raise your voice to ask "excuse me, but could you explain what is going on here?"

Makes me so mad that I want to watch the new The Joker movie and become an incel. :messenger_weary: :messenger_ok:

You saw that jontron video too?

GAF suffered from astroturfers in 2014 and again from political activists in 2016, eventually leading to a third mob-action in 2017 when the site split. Since then, we've had a regular stream of screechers dropping far-left rhetoric and reeeeing out of the forum in a blaze of glory. It's not sci-fi. It's recent history. 🤷‍♀️

The fake comparison is pathetic .. go read my post history I've never fronted for them. But I'm not warped by the internet like you. KKK and Nazis have killed people, antifa .. ain't seen a body drop yet.

Don't forget the guy in Off-Site Drama who said he has dozens of accounts ready to drop gay porn at a moments notice. The pattern is:

1. REEEEE about Trump
2. Attack the "Nazis" posting on GAF
3. Post gay porn
4. Strangely not post for 10 min
5. Account suicide with sticky fingers

What a surprise.

Not such a braniac 16 year old after all.

Without someone telling her, she probably couldn't tell you the sky is blue.

lol

Then go after the people who put her there if you think what they did was wrong. Don't go after the kid because she messed up a question at a press conference.
I'd say that most of us are doing precisely that. The purpose of showing this video is to highlight that she is indeed being used as a puppet. For me the video also highlights that she's not in good shape right now mentally. She's struggling. And that's what her parents have done to her.

She’s a child. No point in targeting her as a serious proposition, she’s being exploited by activists.

But I totally get the memes, hilarious. I‘m convinced she would kill me and skull fuck my dead body given the opportunity.
She is mentally Ill Child. (Yes Asperger is count as mental Illness) this is the biggest problem. They are exploiting a mental illchild.

Well, what she should have said was...

Astrophysics is the branch of astronomy that employs the principles of physics and chemistry "to ascertain the nature of the astronomical objects, rather than their positions or motions in space".[1][2] Among the objects studied are the Sun, other stars, galaxies, extrasolar planets, the interstellar medium and the cosmic microwave background.[3][4] Emissions from these objects are examined across all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, and the properties examined include luminosity, density, temperature, and chemical composition. Because astrophysics is a very broad subject, astrophysicists apply concepts and methods from many disciplines of physics, including classical mechanics, electromagnetism, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, relativity, nuclear and particle physics, and atomic and molecular physics.

...as per the basic Wikipedia introduction to astrophysics.

Oh, that's right, she's a 16 year old who doesn't go to school, that's why she forgot, I'm so stupid!

I don't really get the pile on. Almost everyone that speaks at the UN is an actor. Who cares if this kid is too?

Yeah, if you make yourself a public figure, fair game on some mocking. The mocking just seems especially pointless in this case. Like, what credibility does she have that you want to tear down? It won't matter. Crazies gonna crazy.

I would say most people actually feel sorry for her, not threatened, so that bit misses the target... wishful thinking. Her parents should be ashamed, but they're probably picking up scraps from what falls out of Gore's pockets now.

Something a little wrong about this, at 16.

I feel totally sorry for her, she’s been warped into this fearful little ball of hatred and she’s only 16. I don’t hate her, I think her parents should be charged with child abuse.

Its not her "credibility", its people like her parents and others that have done this that is being torn down. Nobody really cares about her, they do have problems with the people behind her... its very easy to understand. She is correct, this is a war, and she is going to be the casualty, thanks to her stupid parents. She is right, she should get on the first plane and go across the ocean and go to school.

Actually, I think most people believe in being an "environmentalist" (not that we have to agree on the degree), the problem for all this climate change bullshit is it does huge damage to real issues, but that's not their point... there point is extremism and control. They're fucking wack jobs.

I wouldn't be so harsh on a child. She doesn't realize what she's been pushed into. When you're the puppet, you end up getting most of the flak. She wasn't really given a choice.
Disagree. When we aren't "harsh" on them, it basically tells the generation that they are right, and to keep proceeding with this nonsense. We have high schoolers and college kids who don't know shit about the world, thinking they are experts on everything, because the media told them they are, and what to think. Part of being a child, is learning lessons the hard way. Correction, that is a conservative principle. A liberal principle is that all choices are good, except for becoming wealthy.

Mostly to make fun of the people who touted her as the next coming of Jesus (sadly this is not exaggeration).

I disagree because it doesn't apportion the blame fairly. Children have a very different approach to the world because they have yet to experience disappointment or life events that naturally come with time and age. She isn't able to process that. She's been pushed into this by the media and I don't know who. They've reinforced that notion that she is right and will shield her from such criticism.

I'm as hard-knocks as they come nowadays but I can't blame a child for doing something that she believes in, even if her beliefs don't align with mine. It's wrong to paint her as having complete agency. It's an illusion.

This thread is very benign. It is news worthy based on current events. There is no hatred or slant in the title or the OP. It would be your own projection to feel otherwise based on the title and OP.
That's why they used a kid in the first place. So people like Nobody_Important can say "Don't go after the kid" when other people try to criticize.

Unless it is a 16yo with a MAGA hat standing quiet with a smirk.

Then into the woodchipper he goes, boys! Such pathetic dorks, lol.
Forgot about the MAGA kid. Thanks for the remind.

Fuck the world’s so divided. Radical woke are the catalyst, so much hate there.

Greata is just the next extension of the shield defence. I honestly feel bad for the girl.

Congratulations, someone with the Asperger's syndrome is not that strong at responding to unprepared situations and multi-faceted questions? That's pretty unsurprising to be honest.

I dont want to shit on this girl its unfair. She is just doing what her handlers have told her. Who at 16 wouldn't want to do the stuff she is doing, miss school every friday, sail around on a boat, fly to the UN. I don't blame her 1 bit, especially with this generation that is so vapid and narcissitic the attention she is getting is better than 1 million IG followers. I am sure if she could sell her bathwater she would do it to.

My problem is why does anyone care what this 16 year old girl has to say that knows nothing. She lives a nice live of privilage in one of the richest countries in the world where she is taken well care of. She says her childhood was stolen, yet she is 16, she lived her childhood and seems like she had a great one. Its not like she lives in some 3rd world hell hole and was gang raped and forced into a child marriage or some shit.
