#2  If you're already angry, don't read this.

#3  My anger has beem simmering near the boiling point for exactly 20 years.
Posted by: Besoeker || 09/11/2021 8:06 Comments || Top||

#4  I’m dating myself but but I’ve been angry ever since the AP said Dwight Eisenhower was lazy and stupid

And add to that the fact we still do not know who Obumble but he really wasn’t inept really is

And now we have a year of terror by Antifa versus some guy in a Buffalo headdress who just wanted a selfie in the Capital rotunda

Like they said, you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing

And to all of you snowflakes that little old man in the Veteran baseball cap was and is a bigger badass than you can ever be

Yeah I think we are on the brink

The Coming COVID Apartheid
[American Thinker] Even before his radical demands Thursday for vaccination of federal employees and those of federal contractors and large companies, President Biden was seeking to demonize the unvaxxed.

When it comes to the pandemic, only one-half of Americans are fully vaccinated. Choosing the stick over the carrot, the Biden administration has encouraged state government leaders and CEOs to sew a scarlet letter on the unvaxxed and cast them out from their social lives and sources of income. Government-sanctioned segregation appears to be making a comeback.

Erstwhile government emerita like Obama CIA director General Michael Hayden, gleefully caught up in a Twitter rant, agreed that the unvaccinated are Trump supporters who should be flown to Afghanistan and dropped amidst the Taliban. By missing recent polls showing that the largest percentage of unvaxxed within any racial group are blacks, Hayden shows an ignorance beyond expectation for a Trump-bashing, cocktail party general.

As of mid-August, almost half of New York City’s nine million residents remain unvaccinated, even two weeks after its Bolshevist mayor shut the doors to theaters, restaurants, bars, and gyms for those lacking proof of a first shot or negative test result. The Bronx Bombers have herded them into special no-vax sections of Yankee Stadium, with similar seclusions at home games of the Mets, Knicks, and Nets. Lifelong fans and season ticket holders find themselves ejected from their baseline seats and into boxed-in areas enforced with a minimum, socially distanced, capacity. Uppity Eastside restauranteurs are pressed into the role of Brownshirts serving haute cuisine, demanding masks, and turning away those who cannot produce papers. No shot, no proof, no service is now one of those hip idioms that epitomize the weaponization of the private sector to achieve government goals in Democrat-run urban strongholds.

DeBlasio, who plies politics as if Gracie Mansion overlooked the Bahia de Habana, is apparently unconcerned that his social pogrom against those lax about the vax is racial discrimination on its face. Only twenty-eight percent of black males aged 18 to 44 across the five boroughs are inoculated, an age group that comprises almost one-third of all city workers who, if they persist into mid-September, are at risk of losing their means. That’s a non sequitur to the mayor, as most Democrats in his line of work are authoritarians by way of a majority-black vote without lifting a finger to earn it.

#1  Doesn't matter. Racist is just another word for "The Other". They never mean themselves.

#4  All this does is make it easier for the shooting to start.

Biden is a fool.

The Masked Ball of Cowardice
[Tablet Magazine] How fear of admitting error in trusting China’s coronavirus propaganda is driving Western societies into a doom spiral

For Xi Jinping, lockdown was never about a virus. It was about sending a message: that stripped of all disguise, the illusion of virtue, competence, and commitment to human rights among the Western political class is nothing more than conformity with easily subvertible norms and institutions passed down by prior generations. As lockdown policies grind on into their 18th month, it’s increasingly difficult to disagree with him.
“Lockdowns,” the mass quarantine of both sick and healthy people, have never before been used for disease mitigation in the modern Western world. Previously, the strategy had been systematically ruled out by the pandemic plans of the World Health Organization (WHO) and by health experts of every developed nation. So how did we get here?

Mass lockdowns of entire countries as a technique for fighting disease sprung into the world’s consciousness on the order of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), who fomented a global propaganda offensive targeting Western governments and media. Within weeks, the WHO, an organization that once devoted itself to fighting disease and which has sadly become a tool of Chinese foreign policy, promulgated lockdowns into global policy through a series of press conferences that showed a complete absence of analysis or logic.

#1  Leadership of con men. In the olds days they would have been called slickers. When they would work their con in a community they knew to leave before being found out. Tar and feathered would be the normal way they would be summarily relocated. Today they are politicians, Doctors, lawyers, and media. The cabal of like minded doing what they do best, skin the people but no need to worry about consequences. Obama was an obvious good example. They can go back over and over again and collect their spoils. The sheriff of Nottingham is alive and doing very well. Robin hood has been forced into hiding again.
