Greta the Great? 'Blackish' Compares Greta Thunberg to Alexander the Great

Blackish is known for being a politically and racially charged show, and this week's episode was no different. In Tuesday's episode, "Adventure to Ventura," the show compares Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate change activist/fanatic, to Alexander the Great, one of the world's, well, greatest and most successful military commanders in history and the teenage inventor of Braille.

Let's just say, the comparison misses the boat.



Dre: Kids. Tiny, fragile, needy. But they are still capable of amazing things. Alexander the Great was a military leader at age 20. At 16, Greta Thunberg inspired millions to fight climate change. She even sailed across the ocean to prove her point. Louis Braille was 15 when he invented his reading system. 15. And blind!

The leftist media loves to try and push the idea that those who are "fighting" for whatever cause is most popular to them are heroic, but trying to compare a 16-year-old girl who is known for screaming at world leaders for "ruining the planet" while doing basically nothing to actually solve what she sees to be a problem is a pretty big stretch, to say the least. It makes you wonder if ABC is getting desperate for material? Food for thought.
