Doubting Greta Thunberg, the now-16-year-old climate activist opens you up to extraordinary hatred.
Our second most popular article at The Daily Breakdown is about Greta. It was published on 6 December 2018 and still gets hits almost every day.
This is the Bolt column that caused all the fuss:
No teenager is more freakishly influential than Greta Thunberg, the deeply disturbed messiah of the global warming movement.
Her influence is about to grow even more outsized and not just because the 16-year-old Swede has been nominated for the Nobel prize.
Thunberg has announced she’s finally going to the United States, the last bastion of the heathen, to preach the global warming faith to the Americans.
Of course, she’s going by racing yacht, because she refuses to fly and heat the planet with an aeroplane’s global warming gasses.
That typical refusal to compromise is guaranteed to help create another round of frantic media hype for Thunberg, who is one of the most astonishing Messianic figures in world history — and I don’t mean that in a good way.
I have never seen a girl so young and with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru.
But in trying to attack Bolt, The Guardian took him out of context and brought autism experts into the fraud they were committing.
Bolt wrote this:
She suffered years of depression and anxiety attacks and was finally diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Her intense fear of the climate is not surprising from someone with disorders which intensify fears.
I am indeed ”deeply disturbed” about the fact that these hate and conspiracy campaigns are allowed to go on and on and on just because we children communicate and act on the science. Where are the adults? pic.twitter.com/xDSlN0VgtZ

Daniel Skorich, an autism researcher at the University of Queensland, said Bolt’s description of autism was incorrect and was “dangerous in the message it sends about autistic people”.
“In contrast to Andrew Bolt’s derisory claims, what autism is not is a ‘disorder which intensify fears’, ‘a fault, and a dangerous one’, that makes autistic people ‘deeply disturbed’ and ‘irrational’, nor one that gives them ‘all that certainty that unreason can possibly give,’” Skorich said.
Bolt didn’t say autism intensified fears; Bot was clearly referring to her disorders, such as “depression and anxiety attacks”.
Speaking of autism:
Andrew Bolt is now picking on a 16 year old! How macho of him! Bolt just can’t handle a young woman speaking truth to power. Bolt is little more than a Murdoch media thug masquerading as a journalist – propagating his master’s climate change denialism. https://t.co/cPF18mYE7p

Rudd’s involvement is truly pathetic. He hates the Murdoch press and hates Bolt, who was among the first to expose his boorish behaviour. And was certainly the most brutal. Read it – no wonder Rudd hates him.
Lesson 1: Don’t abuse your customer
Remember this ad:
Seems the customers did.
The first rule of business might well be, don’t tell your customers you don’t like them. Someone should have told Gillette:
Earlier this year, Gillette embarked on a bold new advertising campaign. For decades, the company had celebrated masculinity, telling us that being a man is good. But what this new campaign presupposes is: Maybe it isn’t?
Gillette’s infamous “toxic masculinity” ad may cost Procter & Gamble more than anyone imagined in January.
The year that Gillette launched its “We Believe” campaign and asked “Is this the best a man can get?” has coincided with P&G’s $8 billion non-cash writedown for the shaving giant.
And as of last night, on the official Gillette YouTube page, this was the audience response. Wow.
This man is vile

You can’t question transgender lunacy
If you think a three-year-old child is too young to decide thier gender, then you’re wrong! Just ask Mario Lopez – he won’t be making that mistake again.
