Thunberg was reportedly arrested in eastern Germany on Tuesday while protesting at a coal mine.
DTNZ reported of the arrest earlier today, with a short video included in the article. That video showed Thunberg being carried away by three police officers wearing riot gear amidst a crowd chanting ‘You are not alone’.
However another video posted to Twitter by DTNZ syndicated columnist Ian Miles Cheong casts a different light on the incident.
‘Yes the Greta Thunberg arrest was staged for the establishment media’, tweeted Cheong. In this video Thunberg can be seen smiling and laughing with the ‘policemen’ as they pose in front a photographer for a staged shot. There does not appear to be any disturbance, and the rowdy crowd of protestersin the original has mysteriously disappeared from sight, nor can their chanting be heard.
Yes, the Greta Thunberg arrest was staged for the establishment media.
