Tate v Thunberg

A few months ago, the name Andrew Tate crossed my radar. I initially wrote him off as just another attention-seeker. Then he crossed my radar a few more times and I came to think of him as the nastiest piece of garbage I had ever heard of, bar none, but I did not write about him for I was not willing to give him the attention he so obviously craves. But this week, ol’ Andy was taken down by the best … Greta Thunberg … and I am sharing Clay Jones version of the incident. Thumbs up to you, Greta Thunberg! You rock!


Conservative men who flaunt their toxic masculinity love to troll liberals on the internet. But it’s never a good idea for a 36-year-old man to troll a teenage girl. It’s bullying, creepy, sexist, and just wrong. And they especially shouldn’t do it if the teenage girl is smarter than they are…which of course, most of them are.

Andrew Tate is a self-proclaimed misogynist. His entire brand is built on his character, which is being a right-wing sexist asshole.

He’s a former kickboxing champion who went on to greater fame when his fighting career ended. He was on the British reality TV show Big Brother until he was removed in 2016 after a video surfaced that appeared to show him physically assaulting a woman.

British-American Tate has been quoted saying he’s “absolutely a misogynist” and “I’m a realist and when you’re a realist, you’re sexist. There’s no way you can be…

        • Well, the one actual child who used to read some of my posts has left … 😢 However, I suppose it depends on whether you are talking about actual children, or those whose mentality marks them as children, despite their advanced years. A few of those do pop in every now and again, but … 🤷 Still, I get your point, so I shall just use my imagination! 😉

          • I don’t recall there ever being a true child on your group Jill…I think at our age we could recognise them, if only by the style of language (ie words we just do not understand 😀). An they also ask ‘Why?’
            I think you’ve just had the ration of deniers and devotees of the blinkers.

            • Do you remember Ellen, who used to comment on nearly every post and was always so supportive? It was her grandson, Benjamin. She supervised which of my posts he was allowed to see, and I think he was around 5 years old at the time. He loved Jolly Mondays, Saturday Surprise, and especially loved the Good People posts on Wednesdays. Long story as to what happened to end that friendship … I’m not even sure myself … but I surely do miss both Ellen and young Benjamin.

  1. Jill, too funny and yet too sad as well, that someone feels the need to act like this to prove something to people who I guess think this sort of thing makes you important. I was thinking of my recent post on legislators and others making themselves irrelevant by saying inane and mean-spirited things. Like Clive, I had not heard of this person nor do I care too. Now, if he wants to make his opinion matter, then he should start by saying things more substantive.

    I have seen Greta Thunberg in person when she was seventeen. She handled a heckler with the aplomb of an experienced speaker. It is not a surprise to see her do the sane with this person.

    • The mentality is far beyond my comprehension. I would love to see a psychological evaluation of this person, for he is worse than the very worst of the lot … I’d say cruelty that even exceeds that of Hitler, Ted Bundy, or Charles Manson, to name a few. In time, he will kill … I have no doubt.

      As for Greta … she amazes me in every possible good way! For one so young, and especially having asperger’s … she is wiser than many full adults I know! And witty, to boot!
