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.
