Young green activist Greta Thunberg is back in the news. Thunberg was dubbed the “Doom Pixie” for scowling at her elders at the UN and demanding of them, “How DARE you?” for daring to provide her with a safe, warm and comfortable life thanks to capitalism and abundant cheap energy. Last week, she and some fellow protesters were in a London courtroom, facing charges for a protest in which they blocked people’s entrance to an oil energy conference. Naturally, the judge dropped all the charges because how DARE anyone ever hold a leftist accountable for his/her/xir behavior?
Note from our pop culture guru, Pat Reeder:
Incidentally, if you’ve been wondering who Greta Thunberg reminds you of, I think I’ve figured it out.
Last week was the birthday of 1960s child actor Billy Mumy of “Lost In Space” fame. His other most famous role was as the terrifying godlike spoiled child on “The Twilight Zone” who banished people to the cornfield forever if they did anything to displease him. See if these two photos strike you as spookily similar in more ways than one.
If that doesn’t creep you out enough, here’s Billy’s daughter Liliana, playing the daughter of that character in a 2003 sequel to the episode on UPN’s “Twilight Zone” reboot. Scary resemblance, isn’t it?
