Time Magazine Snubs Hong Kong Protesters, Picks Greta Thunberg As ‘Person Of The Year’

Ironically, one of the few countries Thunberg doesn’t visit and criticize is China.

In Hong Kong, a brave group of protesters are rising up against a ruthless authoritarian state, seeking the freedom they were promised under the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ agreement.

They have sacrificed everything, including in many cases their lives, and have shown that people will fight for their rights and their freedom even in the face of overwhelming odds.

So, you would think that Hong Kong protesters would be the obvious choice for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

After all, while the award refers to “person,” Time has often picked groups of people, so their are many precedents.

But instead, Time Magazine picked Greta Thunberg, the young activist who has focused most of her criticism on countries in the West that are already reducing emissions.

Of course, it’s no coincidence that both Thunberg and Time Magazine shy away from criticizing China. China would have gone ballistic if Time Magazine gave the honour to Hong Kong protesters, and Thunberg would never be free to go to China and criticize the government there.

That’s the big irony here: China is by far the biggest cause of increasing emissions, and while Europe has shut down 30 coal plants recently, China more than cancelled that out by building 60.

Anyone who wanted to credibly push for lowered global emissions would be focused on China, not the Western world.

The establishment media will continue trying to virtue-signal and keep the focus on blaming the West, but more and more people are waking up and seeing the truth, no matter what Time Magazine says.

Who cares what Time Magazine writes anymore. They are as irrelevant as and eight track player. If you don’t know what that is – I have proven my point!


People still have not realized what is running the UN. Poor Greta was set up by these same “elite” people running our bought out UN medias around the world to make the UN run Paris accord more countries tax money for their one world agenda.

Why have so many people bought this nonsense? Thunberg–*Irritant of the Year.*–Pushing the Fraud of the Decade.

These ‘power of youth’ kids are going to fix the climate following the lead of high school drop-out Greta. Many of these same ‘youth’ have no basic reading, math or science skills, at least here in Ontario’s education system. Many can’t even cursive write their names or string together a complete sentence. Scary!


Greta Thunberg also won Rebel News “BIGGEST HYPOCRITE OF THE YEAR!” It is good and comforting to see that we still have the Truthful and Ethical Independent Media! Thank-you Rebel News!
