    You really need to get over your need to wack people on the head -- get some anger management counseling.

    Check out this quote from Greta:

    "World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures."

    https://www.breitbart.com/environmen...-leaders-wall/

    Does she have any idea what the phrase "put them against the wall" really means and what she is advocating here?

    Would she care if she did?

    We seem to have an answer to that:

    Source: Greta Thunberg apologizes for "against the wall" comment


    Greta Thunberg apologized on Saturday for a comment that some interpreted as a threat of violence against politicians who ignore climate change. Thunberg said she was merely translating a Swedish expression into English and apologized for the way her comments may have come off.

    "Yesterday I said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said 'put them against the wall,'" the 16-year-old climate activist tweeted on Saturday. "That's Swenglish: 'att ställa någon mot väggen' (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone accountable."

    "That's what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language," the Swede continued. "But of course I apologize if anyone misunderstood this. I can not enough express the fact that I — as well as the entire school strike movement — are against any possible form of violence. It goes without saying but I say it anyway."

    The expression in English is often a euphemism for executions. It refers to putting someone in front of wall before they are killed by a firing squad.

    Thunberg, who was recently named Time's Person of the Year for 2019, made the comments during a speech in Italy on Friday while talking about world leaders who aren't helping to fight climate change.

    "We have to make sure that they cannot do that," she said. "We will make sure they, that we put them against the wall, and that they will have to do their job and to protect our futures."

    Thunberg has gotten under the skin of several world leaders, including United States President Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Mr. Trump tweeted earlier this week that Thunberg "must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!"

    Former first lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, tweeted a message of support to Thunberg, writing "don't let anyone dim your light."

    I kind of thought that something like this might have been what happened.

    I wish people would just take the issues seriously, rather than Biden pretending he was the answer to it without him listening to the scientists, or the media still treating this girl as if she's important.

    The scientists as usual are put mostly on ignore.

    The science is not being ignored.

    The possibility of slips like that she claims are always a distinct possibility (and should be easiest enough to confirm by those with access to English-speaking Swedes).
