Fox News hosts and their guests are willing to criticize anyone and anything. It doesn’t matter if the subject is a child. During a recent segment on Tucker Carlson’s show, a guest criticized teen activist Greta Thunberg, claiming she only cares about climate change because she has autism.
The Daily Wire’s Nick Rosiak told Carlson:
“And this is a girl who is – she has Aspergers Syndrome I mean she takes things literally. They know that. And she watched at her school, she was in Sweden, right, so they have unions everywhere there. So the teachers decide to stop going to work on Mondays and Fridays because it was like – they’re lazy. And so they start showing movies and that’s where Greta Thunberg sees this movie that says the world is going to end in 10 years.”
The disgraceful attack continued, “And because she has autism she thinks the world is actually going to end in 10 years. And so she becomes deeply unhappy and lets out this howl that lasts for 40 minutes, and the teachers’ unions love it, because they can use her. And they actually give her an award, student of the year, to Greta Thunberg because she’s so unhappy. We don’t want more Greta Thunbergs.”
