Greta Thunberg Statue Unveiled at UK University Labeled “Vanity Project”

Student Union says money was wasted.

A bronze statue of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has been unveiled at a university in the UK, with critics branding it a “vanity project.”

The University of Winchester proudly revealed the ‘inspirational’ statue’, claiming it was the first life-size sculpture of the Swedish campaigner.

However, critics blasted the statue as indicative of a cult of personality, while others questioned how much carbon emissions were emitted in the making of the structure.

The university’s student union also voiced opposition to the statue, which cost £24,000, saying the money could have been spent on better things.

“We’re in a Covid year, lots of students haven’t really had access to campus, lots of them are trying to study online and are in dire need of support,” said President of Winchester Student Union Megan Ball.

“We are calling on the university to match the statue cost by committing £23,760 in additional funding to student support services across campus.”

“We urge them to publicly face the critical issues which students are highlighting and provide a transparent breakdown of additional and existing financial support.”

Winchester University and College Union (UCU) also passed a motion describing the statue as a “vanity project,” pointing out that the university had suffered through several years of austerity and job losses.

Students were told in an email that the statue would become a symbol of its “commitment to combat the climate and ecological emergency.”

However, Twitter users pointed out that in creating it, CO2 emissions that could have gone to lighting lecture theaters were wasted.

As we previously highlighted, a mural of Greta in Edmonton, Alberta, was defaced, with the vandal telling Thunberg to stop lecturing him on how to live his life.

Last year, historian Niall Ferguson slammed Thunberg’s lecturing of solely western countries, asking why “I don’t see her in Beijing or Delhi.”

The fact that Greta is merely a mouthpiece for her activist parents was underscored during a press conference last November when she was unable to answer a simple question without reading off a script.

New Movie Asks is Alex Jones a “Dangerous Lunatic” or a “Patriotic Hero”?

Acclaimed director of TFW NO GF returns with new feature film.

A new film by acclaimed director Alex Lee Moyer set to be released in theaters next month asks the question, “Who is Alex Jones? Is he a dangerous lunatic or a patriotic hero?”

Moyer, who previously directed TFW NO GF, a fascinating insight into the incel sub-culture, has returned with a new documentary movie about one of the most controversial men on the planet today.

A trailer for Alex’s War has just dropped on YouTube, teasing viewers with the promise of taking them on a rollercoaster ride showing Jones’ rise from local radio talk show host to national attention and infamy.

“Alex’s War is an unprecedented close examination of this guarded, mythic figure, and the story of the fracturing of the great American narrative—through the eyes of this man who helped break it,” states the blurb accompanying the film.

The clip charts how the “most banned, most demonized person in the world” became a target of the regime after his once relatively obscure media empire grew to such a level that it helped elect President Donald Trump in 2016.

Footage shows Jones cutting his teeth in the late 90’s by confronting deceitful councils and exposing corrupt local politicians.

It then zooms forward to 2015, when a major centerpiece of Trump launching his presidential campaign was an appearance on Jones’ show during which Trump described Jones as “amazing.”

The persecution of Jones in the form of his sustained demonization and deplatforming, which intensified after January 6, is also documented.

“OK, let’s put me in prison for questioning, even though that’s my right,” states Jones in the documentary. “In fact let’s execute Alex Jones, let’s put me in front of a firing squad and pull the trigger.”

“I have a sick feeling actually, because I know what comes next,” he adds.

The movie will be showing in select theaters on July 29th and will be available for video download on the same date.

Poll Finds Half Of Americans Rank Moral Values In Country As “Poor”

Only 13 percent think moral values are ‘good or excellent’

A new Gallup poll has found that 50 percent of Americans rank moral values in their country currently as “poor,” with only 13 percent saying those values are good.

The poll found that 37 percent rate moral values as ‘fair’, but only 1 percent rate them as excellent.

Gallup notes that it is the worst ranking of moral values among American for two decades, and that an already negative trend has worsened.

“While the amount of Americans who rate the moral values of the country as poor has been fairly consistent over the last five years, the number did decline to 43% in 2020 before rising again in the last two years,” the pollster notes.

When looked at through the lens of politics, it comes as little surprise that more Democrats currently rank moral values in the country as good or excellent.

A total of 72 percent of Republicans rated moral values as “poor,” while just 36 percent of Democrats concurred.

On the flip side, 48 percent of Democrats ranked moral values as “fair” with 15 percent rating them as “excellent.”

What the hell are those people smoking?

The poll also found that a total of 78 percent of Americans believe things are going to get worse.

“Americans’ views of the state of moral values in the U.S. are dismal,” Gallup asserted, adding “and their expectations for the future are grim.”

Gallup also found that a belief in God among Americans has fallen to an all time low, with 17 percent in total saying they do not believe. The pollster notes that the demographic most opposed to belief in God are young liberals.
