On Monday, the morning commute in Washington, D.C., was snarled by climate demonstrators taking over high profile streets and intersections to demand residents focus on the allegedly urgent need need to confront and reverse climate change. But what the activists actually revealed is an anti-capitalist agenda.
Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Christopher C. Horner reacts to the Shut Down D.C. movement and what it actually accomplished – not greater awareness of their cause but fierce anger from motorists and the demonstrators admitting their goal is to crush capitalism.
Horner explains this is nothing new for climate activists. They’ve actually been open about it for a long time, but the mainstream media stubbornly refuse to take the demonstrators at their word.
Also on Monday, progressive teen sensation Greta Thunberg delivered an angry rebuke to political leaders for not acting on climate change a long time ago. Thunberg accused the leaders of destroying her childhood and her future.
In response, Horner passionately criticizes the adults in the green movement for exploiting Thunberg and explains how the climate movement was planning years ago to use children to build emotional support for their cause.
