Putin is Right

I hate to admit it, but the man’s got a point

Chairing a session titled ‘Energy Partnership for Sustainable Growth’ at an energy forum in Moscow, Putin said: ‘I may disappoint you but I don’t share the common excitement about the speech by Greta Thunberg.

‘No one has explained to Greta that the modern world is complex and different and…people in Africa or in many Asian countries want to live at the same wealth level as in Sweden.

‘Go and explain to developing countries why they should continue living in poverty and not be like Sweden.’

    Putin is right. To have some spoiled, little brat and media whore lecturing the world about things she has no clue of is wrong. She is being played by clueless climate change believers and their bed partners, the media, just to say the world is in dire need of immediate help by raising taxes and expenses and to take away rights of citizens.
    This girl needs a muzzle not media attention.

    The world is in a sad state when grown, highly educated, men feel threatened enough to brand a child as a whore. Awful. Just awful.

  3. Mar

    Insane Pat, you’re an idiot and illiterate.

    Highly Educated Professor Marbles brilliantly responds, “Insane Pat, you’re an idiot and illiterate.”

    Well then, Marbles, you evidently believe branding a child a whore is the sign of a sane, intelligent, literate mature adult.

    I’m then very proud to have you call me insane, an idiot, and illiterate for disagreeing with you about that.

    A flashing VCR is right once a year.  Of course, Putin’s already facing the collapse of Russia due in no small part to the same depopulation trend the Gorebull Warmerists want to take worldwide.

    On a related note, I wonder if anybody explained to that young puppet what would happen if all 7 billion adopted the lifestyles of the Third World.  Even if the Earth could support it, the ecological damage would be far worse than what we have now.

    Pat, I don’t deal with illiterate trolls.

  7. Pat


    But you just did.

    Stop feeding the trolls.

    Do you believe it’s right to call a child a whore just because other individuals have a different opinion?

  10. Merlin

    You’ve twice now quite falsely taken the term “whore” out of the original context in which it was used, thereby attempting to create a false argument in order to derail the thread. Pretty much the definition of trolling.

  11. Pat

    So your answer is yes, it is ok to use the word, whore, in any context to disparage a child.

    The sock puppet calling someone else a troll… Only at B&S!
    I must admit there is a level of the entertainment…

    We could look at Mar’s original comments in other lights.

    He said “media whore.”  Does he use the term more often for women than men?  Who else would he call a media whore?

    He also said “spoiled, little brat.”  Did he use these terms on Brett Kavanaugh, for example?  Brett had righteous indignation, and he liked beer!  And this term is really about age and size, isn’t it?  The other end of the spectrum is what…  big and rightfully entitled?

    He said she has no clue about what she’s talking about.  Specifically what is she wrong about?  Facts?  Or opinions?

    He said she’s being played by “clueless climate change believers and their bed partners, the media.”  Again with the clues, again with the sex.  Bed partners!  Not just sympathizers – they’re probably having sex!

    And she’s wrong because she’s saying “the world is in dire need of immediate help by raising taxes and expenses and to take away rights of citizens.” Tell me how this is different from any now-routine call for war.  Or Trump’s border wall.  

    And then the “muzzle.”  Now she’s not just a child, she’s a dog!

    All this, and not a single word about any facts she said.
