The right has the apatite for unadulterated hypocrisy that is unlike anything I've ever witnessed. This is actually a tactic of theirs to try and dim Thunberg's influence and reach. By putting out an "opposite sides" teen that very much resembles Thunberg and hypocritically propping her up with think tank and PAC advertising money, they reinforce the perception that all of these "kids" are just being used by adults.I wonder if she will get the same criticism as Greta that she is too young to be taken seriously and is just being used by adults to fuel an agenda?
It's a cheap ploy that can be incredibly effective if you're not paying to much attention. I have no doubt it will work with some, just as I have no doubt that whenever Thunberg makes news, this teen will be right there with a social media tweet or post that will be advanced by the online legions of the right.
