Greta Burned In Effigy In Delhi
The carbon emissions alone make this priceless. Over to you, Dron, for further analysis.
[Guardian] Counter-protesters in Delhi have burned effigies of the Swedish environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg after she tweeted support for India’s protesting farmers in posts that have prompted an investigation by Indian police.

Crowds gathered in Delhi to protest against several international celebrities including Thunberg and the pop singer Rihanna, who inflamed sentiments in India and angered the government after tweeting about the continuing farmer protests this week. Photos of Thunberg and Rihanna were set alight and banners were held aloft warning that "international interference" in Indian affairs would not be tolerated.

Since November, hundreds of thousands of farmers have been camped out around Delhi demanding several new agriculture laws are repealed. After a march last week turned violent, with hundreds storming the capital’s historic Red Fort, Delhi police had been cracking down on the farmers by sending in riot officers and paramilitary troops, cutting off entry and exit to the protest sites and blocking mobile internet access.

Thunberg became embroiled in allegations of an international criminal conspiracy against India after she tweeted a "toolkit" for people who wanted to show support for the farmers. The document included campaigning tips such as suggested hashtags and advice on how to sign petitions.

#5 Imagine burning all the vicious hate and lies spewed by that autistic teen that have been fed to her by her puppeteers in a single bonfire?

It would look like Ground Zero of Nuke detonation. Now that would change to climate in the immediate area for a few days.

#8 The farmers have legitimate complaints, the Indian government is corrupt through and through. New Delhi is a giant cesspool.

#9 Grrrta is not the answer.

And if you believe what you stated, then don't let Grrrta and Team hijack the the complaint. They flay popular movements and wear the skin as a cloak.

So don't be surprised when Green Sustainability suddenly becomes The Only Farmers Who Are Compliant Grow Cucumbers For Heinz.

#10 Did I say that Grrrta was the answer? No, I did not. She is a mental defective that was used by the Left. What the 'crats are going to do to us, our country and the military should frighten everyone. At some point kinetic action is going to have to be taken.

#11 No, but there are people who will think that celebrity adds strength to their complaint, when they will be used, taken for a ride, and then thrown in the middle.

#13 The Ahed Tamimi of the globalists, 'nuff said.

About the protestRiot.

The farmer in India is someone who has to go through the State machiery and reams of bribe funded red-tape to sell his produce. 70 years of this system have festered a culture of only the rich ones controlling the market, a syndicate. Since most of them are in Punjab and as they grew richer they emigrated to Canada, Europe etc they became radicalized as khalistanis.

The Farmers in the protest are the richest ones, the ones who benefit from the system. Adding to their numbers are jihadis, globalist Marxists, the liberal opposition trying to get back in power and assorted mercenary interests.

The govt policy is now changing to allow the farmer to sell his produce directly via an open market, where the buyer handles everything from point of sale. I know, you already have that. Point is everyone should. But to the interest outside India that brings about at eventuality where the farmer gets individually richer because of a nationalist govt's , which is unacceptable if 'Nationalism' has to be destroyed.

Enter the Soros children.

NOTE: One of the listed demands of the 'poor farmers' was, the central security forces must unconditionally release all islamic terrorists and facilitators and maoist terrorist recruiters caught in the past year. What this has to do with farming is a mystery; but what it is, is a neon-lit sign that says 'hostile'.

That moves this story from Non-WoT to War on Terror, and means we have to pay proper attention to it. Matt, Dron66046, thank you for being on top of this for us.

#18 Maybe WOT Background would've been more apt, but I suppose burning an effigy is also like an ant-terror operation for New Delhi.

#19 WoT Background can certainly be argued. More like lawfare than a bombs’n’bullets massacre. Ok.

#20 Would the jihadis be Pakistan tools or some other group, Dron64066? We have several categories and organizations we can tag it, depending on who they are.
