WaPo Overjoyed Lefty Trolls Are Bullying Oil Companies Online
Journalists love lefty activists — especially when they are pushing propaganda. The New York Times and Washington Post both celebrated how an online “influencer army” was promoting a “personality-driven campaign” in separate weekend stories.
The Times featured government-funded talking heads pushing the Coronavirus vaccine to underage children “to fight vaccine lies.” The Post was thrilled that “self-described trolls” were harassing oil companies on social media.
The Post article was traditional climate-change hysteria, loaded with love for green troll Mary Heglar and her “deep reserves of anger.”
The story said, “the 37-year-old climate essayist and podcaster haunts the feeds of fossil fuel companies, harnessing memes and the native language of the Internet to engage her particular brand of climate activism against the flow of misinformation in the digital ether.”
Climate advocates like @MaryHeglar has adopted a form of rebuttal better associated with the Internet’s ne’er-do-wells — trolling. Greentrolling gives them reach and immediacy, a leveler against well-funded corporate marketing machines. https://t.co/0G6BoU5py3 via @washingtonpost

Of course, it included a young woke journalist turned eco-nut. “Elia Griffin, a senior studying journalism and design at the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts in New York, wrestles with intense climate anxiety that ‘manifests mostly as existential dread.’”
Griffin needs serious help.
Here’s a classic quote that should have her working at the Post when she graduates.
‘If you compare your individual self to those Big Oil companies, they’re the ones who are committing these crimes and destroying the earth, way more than myself as an individual,’ Griffin said. ‘It kind of feels like you’re bullying the bully.’
Spoken like a true Postie.
