As the kids used to say after President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for just winning the White House….. Everyone gets a PEACE PRIZE.
This news would have been unheard of 15 years ago. Al Gore and Jimmy Carter had to campaign for YEARS to get one of these gold medals and President Obama and now Greta Thunberg gets nominated just for showing up in front of a camera.
You know it is true.
From The Hill…
Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a second year in a row.
According to The Associated Press, two lawmakers from Sweden, Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, announced they had nominated the teen on Monday, citing her climate activism.
The two lawmakers said the 17-year-old “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis,” adding that “action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace,” the news agency reports.
According to the AP, the deadline to submit nominations for the prestigious honor was Sunday.
Now by working hard they mean she has been traveling around the world on other people’s dimes telling people that to save the Earth we need to stop traveling around. I’m not begrudging her being it is a great gig if you can get it. I’m just not going to listen to a 16/17-year-old tell me about anything other than pop music. She is not old enough to process any of this.
Not. At. All.
That the Nobel committee is even considering someone who has literally done nothing but scowls at people and yells HOW DARE YOU, is making the whole idea of those awards mock worthy. More so than when Obama won one for breathing.
May I suggest a couple of other nominees for next year.
*The Kansas City Chiefs for winning the Super Bowl and bring joy to both the states of Kansas and Missouri.
*Donald Trump for living rent-free in the heads of those who hate him and the color orange.
*The person who came up with the “Epstein didn’t kill himself” meme being that never gets old and brings joy to all people. Even the ones Hillary is after.
If we are going to flush an award down the toilet lets do it properly and not waste time on people who have done literally nothing but grow a twitter account.
Thank you for your consideration!!!
