Feminist writer Clementine Ford and Instagram blogger Constance Hall have Karl Stefanovic and the & # 39; dirty old men & # 39; evoked that teen climate activist Greta Thunberg criticized.
Ford destroyed the former presenter of Today after he said that the 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl was just an advocate of radical climate activists who want to appeal to a young audience.
& # 39; But should we really be surprised that Karl has no moral compass and will literally say what his employer thinks best, his employer? What an idiot, & she tweeted Thursday.
Greta made international headlines last week after having inspired millions of people in 150 countries to take to the streets for the Global Strike 4 Climate on Friday.

Stefanovic, 45, said the 16-year-old was simply a support for radical climate activists who want to appeal to a young audience
The 16-year-old Swedish environmentalist took on social media against President Donald Trump after criticizing leaders at the UN summit in New York on Tuesday
She then held a passionate speech against world leaders for climate inactivity at the UN summit in New York on Tuesday.
Ford's choice words were a reaction to the condemnation of sports journalist Richard Hinds of the 45-year-old TV personality Stefanovic.
& # 39; What embarrasses my fellow white boys attacking this young girl is that none of them are willing to enter into an intellectual foundation, & # 39; tweet Hinds.
& # 39; Just childish ridicule and & # 39; go to your room! & # 39; readings. It is as if they cannot make a credible argument. & # 39;
The outspoken writer had already targeted Stefanovic on Wednesday after saying that Greta & # 39; is being managed and her attitude is being used by activists & # 39 ;.

& # 39; She is managed and her attitude is used by activists, & # 39; said Stefanovic while hosting a 2 GB radio station on Tuesday afternoon.
& # 39; She was very excited, right? I thought & # 39; what will my children do next week on school holidays? & # 39; Don't do that. & # 39;
Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd supported the activist and told the ABC how Greta spoke, incense & a lot of white middle-aged men & # 39 ;.
Stefanovic said in the air: & # 39; I'll tell you something, I'm a middle-aged white middle-aged guy this afternoon. & # 39;
& # 39; Kevin Rudd, give it a rest. There is anger there – but there is also anger about this kind of activism. & # 39;

Meanwhile, Instagram-famous blogger Constance Hall shared a letter to Greta online, urging & quot; dirty old men who don't like to make public their bad behavior & # 39; to ignore.
& # 39; Actually, there is literally nothing more that they hate than being confronted with their own actions. & # 39;
Hall said that Greta & # 39; s critics on a & # 39; smear campaign & # 39; opposed her and accused them of teasing the autistic teenager about her manners and mental health.
& # 39; Make no mistake that their wives also participate hard in this smear campaign, but their actions come from above and above are the dirty old men, terrified of being beaten off their throne.
& # 39; Be proud of yourself, it takes a lot to frighten the dirty old men of our world and you are now in the same category as some of our great ones, all ironically abused and troubled in their time and discredited were brought. & # 39;
& # 39; Let them blow their breast my girl, let them continue to slander your powerful name. And every time they put pen on paper or mouth to microphone to defame you, discredit your mission or your mental health, you see that fear and despair in their eyes.
Hall then proclaimed the men who had Greta's mental health attacked & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Hot tip, they don't worry about mental health at all, the only thing they worry about is your growing power, your relentless power, and your complete disregard for their scare tactics. & # 39;

Hall said Greta's & # 39; s critics have a & # 39; smear campaign & # 39; against her and accuses them of bullying the autistic teenager about her manners and mental health
Hall seemed to call psychologist Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg, said he fears for Greta's mental well-being on Wednesday
Hall & # 39; s reference to the mental health of the teenager comes a day after a prominent Australian psychologist expressed concern about the mental well-being of the autistic teenager.
Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg compared Greta's position in the spotlight with the fame of a children's TV star that could burn out & # 39; after he was thrown in the spotlight.
& # 39; I am worried that she will be the same as children's TV stars, that they will just burn out and possibly have a disastrous psychological result & # 39 ;, he told 3AW on Wednesday.
& # 39; Can I make it clear, I am not a denier of climate change. I actually think we should do more to save the planet. & # 39;
Dr. Carr-Gregg said he was wary of Greta's Asperger and history of mental health in his analysis of the teenager, who, according to him, had a & # 39; sense of justice & # 39; has.
& # 39; I am concerned that we are using a child like this, who should probably be treated because she has said she has had anorexia, has said she has Asperger, and said she has had depression & # 39 ;, said he.
& # 39; As a parent, if this was my child, I am not sure if I would place them on the world stage. & # 39;
Dr. Carr-Gregg said he was worried about Greta's future, her current mental health and how it would affect other young people.
& # 39; It sends a message to other teens that they can talk to adults in this very, very negative way, & # 39 ;, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; She seems to be entangled in a doom scenario in which she massively exaggerates the threats of climate change and that has a moving effect because it causes all of this existential fear in our children, hence the climate strikes, "he said.
He said children should be in school, but instead rally because & # 39; they are convinced that the end of the world is near & # 39 ;.
& # 39; She has now placed herself at the center of Greta-phobia or Greta-mania and I don't think a 16-year-old girl should be, & # 39; he said.
Donald Trump mocked Greta Thunberg in a tweet after her passionate plea for climate action at the UN climate summit
Trump had already infuriated the 16-year-old by turning her upside down when he arrived at the UN climate summit on Monday
Dr. Carr-Gregg called the & # 39; Twitter war & # 39; between Greta and Donald Trump where the president seemed to mock the teenager.
The US president wrote that Thunberg seems to be a very happy young girl looking forward to a beautiful and beautiful future, clearly meant as a mocking reaction to her emotionally charged speech.
The climate activist responded quickly by changing her Twitter bio to & # 39; A very happy young girl looking forward to a beautiful and beautiful future. & # 39;
Trump had already infuriated the 16-year-old by turning her upside down when he arrived at the UN climate summit on Monday.
But today in a Swedish talk show from New York, the teenage climate activist said that Trump & # 39; s spot & # 39; makes no difference & # 39 ;.
Constance Hall & # 39; s full letter to Greta Thunberg
Dear Greta Thunberg,
Although I fully understand that there are many areas where you know much more than I do …
There is an area that I think maybe I know something more than you.
Dirty. Old. Men.
You see that I would never dare to compare myself with you. When I was 16 when you literally saved the world, I learned how to make a can of water pipe and matching black lipstick with an occasional collar, (don't ask Greta, it was a confusing time, trying to fit in by pressing to fall.)
But what I do know is how it is to tear apart your ways and ways to reduce the facts that you say.
I'm so slow at the start, I only recently discovered you and my mind was blown up, your passion and intelligence, your strength made the hair on my arms stand up straight, but I fear that I was quickly caught with fear . I saw the amount of comments that were generated on you and that can only mean one thing, there are opponents. Of course there are.
But I was wrong, there are downright bullies and they are angry, angry because they have nothing, angry because you know your shit, angry because you expose their behavior … and anyone campaigning against domestic violence or the treatment of refugees or the pay gaps between men and women or the #metoomovement will tell you that Dirty Old Men do not like to disclose their bad behavior. In fact, there is literally nothing that they hate more than being confronted with their own actions.
And so the smear campaign will begin. First they will just try to discredit you. I have campaigned against bullying and so they try to discredit me as the actual bully. You are campaigning for the climate and that will lead them to examine you desperately for a single-use coffee cup in your hotel room. Like any woman campaigning against men, violence against women will tell you that the first argument you encounter is & # 39; also women's mistreatment of men & # 39;
As soon as Greta realized that dirt on you will not distract your impressively large fan base, they will go for the jugular, now they attack your mental health, your manners, your differences, I am seriously concerned about the mental health of Greta Thunberg & # 39; hot tip, they are not worried about your mental health at all, the only thing they are concerned about is your growing power, your relentless power and your complete disregard for their scare tactics. Anyone who is really worried about someone's mental health does not say that they email and send private messages on a public forum. People who say it in a public forum simply try to convince others that your mental health is too bad to correct your message to return to the comfort of their ways.
And finally they will go after your blind & # 39; sheep & # 39 ;, etc. Thinking of their last hope is to embarrass your supporters by turning away. But that doesn't seem to work either … it does.
Make no mistake that their wives also participate hard in this smear campaign, but their actions come from above and above are the dirty old men, terrified of being beaten off their throne.
Let them blow their breasts, my girl, let them keep slandering your powerful name. And every time they put pen on paper or mouth to microphone to defame you, discredit your mission or your mental health, you see that fear and despair in their eyes.
And ask & # 39; why so angry big boys? & # 39;
Because your power far exceeds their fear.
Be proud of yourself, it costs a lot to frighten the dirty old men of our world and you are now in the same category as some of our great ones, all of whom were ironically abused and trollled and also discredited in their time.
