Conservative Teen Anti-Greta Lauds White Supremacist at CPAC
Greta Thunberg has been a thorn in the sides of politicians who like to push back on climate science. She had been criticized by numerous members of the conservative media. She has also drawn the ire of Donald Trump who had a bit of a meltdown when she then teen was named Time’s Person of the Year.
The Heartland Institute, a Conservative organization decided the best way to combat Thunberg was to promote her exact opposite. Enter Naomi Seibt, a German climate denier who is 19 years old. During the weekend, Seibt created some controversy by lauding White Supremacist Stefan Molyneaux.
Seibt was speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. She participated in a panel conversation called, Energy, Costs and Defeating the Climate Delusion.
After the talk, she was asked about Molyneaux following the panel. Seibt replied, “I am still a fan, absolutely.”
In a 2015 YouTube video, Molyneaux stated, “Screaming ‘racism’ at people because blacks are collectively less intelligent…is insane.”
In a podcast from 2014, the Canadian vlogger said, “I don’t view humanity as a single species.”
She was asked specifically about comments where the vlogger made clearly racist statements. He’s not comparing other races, not at all,” Seibt answered. “He is just describing his experience in Western countries and I know that to the extent, for example, if I was in a country where Sharia was present, I know that I would not be able to speak as freely as in Western countries. … It’s not that we are better in any way in Western countries. We still have freedom of speech and I’m very happy that’s the case.”
