“…the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.” – Greta Thunberg, quoted by Kathrine Jebsen Moore in “Greta Thunberg busted for misleading public about her train voyage” – The Post Millennial, December 15th, 2019.

“Not everyone who believes in the ideas of the social justice movement are under the control of these thought reform strategies. But you can tell those who have been indoctrinated into the cult by the way they respond to unfamiliar arguments – they yell insults, they shut down the conversation, they ignore your points, and they create nonsensical, circular arguments. These people are under the spell of the cult.” – Vanessa Glavac, “Social justice controls people with the exact same tactics as cults” – The Post Millennial, December 23rd, 2019.

“Larry Charles returned to his Twitter account on Monday to re-tweet a New York Times story about the massive riots breaking out in India. But along with re-tweeting the article, Charles insisted that America will be beset with the same unrest if Trump is left in office and then re-elected… It appears that Charles is urging the left to riot if Trump is not impeached by the House of Representatives and then removed from office by the U.S. Senate.” – Warner Todd Huston, “Borat director Larry Charles warns of deadly riots if Trump remains in office” – Breitbart, December 16th, 2019.

“Such people are completely intolerant of opinions that conflict with their dogmas and they are fueled by hatred toward people like you. Such people are impossible to reason with. They prefer spewing hatred, typically accompanied with ungrounded assertions of moral and intellectual superiority. They do this within their echo chambers of like-minded people, ignoring data they don’t like and never encountering a dissenting voice. Trust me, you can’t talk to them.” – Kevin MacDonald, “Ideas on maintaining relationships with the less committed in a dark age” – Unz Review, December 31st, 2019.

“Just days ago, Sputnik reported on the fact that almost half of the members of the Communist Party in Malmö, Sweden, are resigning. They plan to establish a new workers’ party that no longer features multiculturalism, LGBT interests, and climate change as key policy goals. Nils Littorin, one of the defectors, told a local newspaper that today’s Left has become part of the elite and has come to ‘dismiss the views of the working class as alien and problematic.’ Littorin suggested that the Left ‘is going through a prolonged identity crisis’ and that his group, instead, intends to stick to the original values, such as class politics.” – Andrew Joyce, Ph.D., “Will 2020 see the emergence of a nationalist left?” – Occidental Observer, December 29th, 2019.
