Conservative activist group Turning Point USA posted a tweet over the weekend calling out “leftist hypocrisy” over progressives’ apparent double standard when it comes to criticizing young people.

“According to the Left, it’s OK to mock these kids,” the meme reads, featuring images of an eight-year-old AOC impersonator and Nick Sandmann, the teen who, along with his peers at Covington Catholic High School, was smeared by the left-leaning media as supposedly “harassing” minorities, when in fact they were the victims of harassment by a radical minority group.

The article went on to state the following:

Below the images of the AOC impersonator and Sandmann is an image of Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish activist who has been formally diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and whose viral speech in front of the United Nations two weeks ago drew criticism from the Right.

Turning Point started by tweeting with the pictures:

“Leftist Hypocrisy At Its Finest!”

Move On responded:

“So you’re telling us it’s ok to mock children? Because, no. No, it isn’t.”

Turning Point USA turned the tables, pointing out:

“Ah yes, not long ago @MoveOn helped propagate a false narrative against children, destroying their & their families’ lives — then you promoted the very adult who aggressively confronted them (and didn’t have the integrity to correct the record) as a speaker at a MoveOn rally.”

Charlie Kirk, Turning Point’s founder, chimed in:

“Really? Where was @MoveOn when journalists described Nick Sandmann as having a ‘punchable face.’ Or when Ilhan Omar spread lies that the Covington Catholic teens were taunting black men. Or when Alyssa Milano called the MAGA hat the new KKK Hood because of the high schoolers.”
