Fight Back In The Culture War

I have been saying this for years. Deplatform from social media. Stop using Google for anything. Do the same with other leftist “woke” companies. Take your money away from big domestic banks. Stop buying from Amazon. Stop doing business with companies that do not share your value or even seem to hate you. Hit them where it hurts. They will change their behavior. A small minority of leftist agitators and revolutionaries are dictating policy to corporate America.

Here Is A Brilliant Idea

If leftist radicals supported by leftist Democrats want to cancel – fill in the blank – they must cancel the Democrat Party.

VICTOR JOECKS: If UNLV’s Hey Reb! mascot is racist, then so is the Democratic Party

The Democrat Party’s history and it’s very existence is steeped in racism. The party traces itself back to the 1820’s and was strongly pro-slavery. The South fought a civil war against the US and was pretty much 100% Democrat. After losing the war, Democrats founded the KKK and opposed many rights being granted to blacks. Even in the 1900’s, prominent Democrats were virulent racists, including Woodrow Wilson. The Civil Rights Act is the 1960’s was not passed to give blacks more freedom and autonomy, but to buy them off as a voting block.

If the Democrat Party has an ounce of integrity, it will disband and dissolve. Or, the left must completely disavow it, if it really cares about racism. I won’t hold my breath.

The Sewer That Is the WaPo Sinks To A New Low

And even their leftist readers are incensed. Seems the WaPo did a story on a woman who appeared in blackface at a party two years ago as a parody, one that did not go over well. The woman is a leftist/progressive, and apologized but that did not matter. Two women at the party who were deeply “offended” then shopped the WaPo until they found someone to write a story and name names. The woman has subsequently lost her job.

So there you have the American Marxist left: destroy and average Jane over something so silly and innocuous it defies description. That these evil angry leftists (the two women and these idiots at the WaPo) will destroy each other should tell everyone all you need to know. Robespierre himself had nothing on some of today’s American leftists.

Great moment for American media: WaPo doxxes woman no one’s heard of, gets her fired for … 2018 Halloween costume

Readers unanimously agree the Post made a huge mistake publishing that Halloween cancel culture story

 

Tucker Carlson: The Very Idea of Free Speech and Thought is Under Attack

It is VERY dangerous and must stop now. Left-wing media, academia and big tech is in on it. And many large corporations and influential people are acquiescing to the mob out of fear. Placating the mob will never work. If you apologize they will come back for more. Next they will make you kneel before them. Then they will make you admit to some “crime”. Then they will take your house. Then perhaps they will imprison you and if you are unlucky, give you a case of “lead poisoning”. History is full of such examples…too bad much of our country does not know its history. Like they said in Germany “when the Nazis had no one left to come for, they came for me.”

The US Has Completely Lost Its Mind

Welp, go away for a week and the country completely goes to shit. As if the Covid lockdowns were not bad enough, now we have full-blown rioting around much of the country to deal with.

I am going to make a few comments and then link to some excellent articles. I believe George Floyd was murdered, full stop. Terrible. The cop(s) who did it will serve hard time. Peaceful protest are welcomed…that should be the end of it. Instead the country is in flames. But Floyd’s killing is not the primary reason: we have similar situations every few years with nothing close to this reaction. Some of the killings are legitimate: think Michael Brown who was proven to have viciously attacked a cop. Others were not: think Freddie Grey in Baltimore. So ask yourself: what is different this time? I will tell you: the Covid lockdowns that forced hundreds of millions to shelter in place for months with no direction and often little hope, and threw 30-40 million people out of work almost overnight, many of them blacks. The black unemployment rate was the lowest in history before the lockdown at something like 6%, and now some people are saying it is 50%! Now I think that is an exaggeration, but even 30% is appalling. So there it is, thanks mainly to the political left and the Democrat party. Even some liberals have connected the dots. I cannot prove this, but neither can it be disproved. And corrupt leftist mayors and governors running the cities and states that are primarily to blame know they are guilty. But no, it’s racist cops hunting black men. The far-left media is guilty as well, openly cheering on the destruction until it comes to their neighborhood, as if it is the last chance to get Trump and bring in socialism. And far-left cities and states that have been way too soft on crime for years (think the home of Antifa, Portland) and are hopelessly corrupt have set the stage for mass unrest. So Floyd’s killing is not the primary cause: years of inner city neglect and corruption, weak, feckless leftist politicians, far-left media cheerleading and finally a draconian nationwide shutdown set the stage for a calamity. George Floyd’s killing was simply the match that lit a very large pile of tinder.

Fact: 9-10 unarmed blacks are killed by cops annually, compared to 19-20 whites. A cop is 18.5% more likely to die at the hands of a black criminal. Compare the 200+ total annual killings of blacks by cops to the 7000+ black-on-black murders annually. These are all facts. Privilege exists, white privilege is a lie. Privilege is not based on race. Asians do far better than whites as a whole by many metrics: is there Asian privilege? Well, let me correct that. People of a certain color are currently allowed to loot, rob, vandalize and assault with impunity in certain cities: does that sound like “privilege”? Racism exists but most people are not racist and nobody is born that way. Institutional racism is a lie. Many of these cities are run mainly by blacks…are they racist against their own people? Black lives only matter when a cop kills a black man. It does not apply to black cops killed (which is not a rarity) nor the roughly 300,000 abortions of black babies annually. The movement is not about equity, it is about intimidation and power. What is obvious as well is that white Antifa thugs are behind a lot of the mayhem…and in some neighborhoods the peace-loving law-abiding blacks are fighting back. This is a violent revolt, not a race protest. Minneapolis and NYC are in a race to see which city can commit suicide faster.

Well, here are the articles.

Studies Show Hydroxychloroquine Effective Against Covid

Five studies show the effectiveness of the drug against Covid 19 when used early in outpatient applications. This matches what I have heard from doctors in the field who have treated Covid patients. When used EARLY it is highly effective. But – Orange Man Bad! The left would literally rather have people die than have Trump be right. You wont see this in the far-left lamestream media.

Covid Catastrophe

Bad science, groupthink and outright political corruption has led to a landslide of bad policy decisions that may change the developed world for years to come. I have a prediction: when 2020 is viewed through the lens of history at some point, the Covid crisis will be viewed as one of the biggest cons ever to be put over on humanity. Not only are the lockdowns ruining healthy people’s lives, they may in fact have caused more Covid deaths than they prevented. Masks not only don’t offer any real protection, they may worsen people’s health. And the leftist elites behind the most draconian restrictions do not care one bit about health. They are liars and hypocrites. Fortunately, a lot of people with gravitas and influence are catching on. Here are some excellent articles, enjoy.

Covid Craziness

As with most crises real and imagined, unprincipled people in power and know-nothings with a megaphone (media) will usually try to take advantage of the situation and change the rules. Remember a mere two months ago when shutting down our entire country and sheltering in place had to be done to prevent the medical system from becoming overwhelmed? Mission accomplished. The medical system was never overwhelmed. In fact, many hospitals are facing financial ruin because, wait for it, THEY HAVE NO PATIENTS! Next it was “we have to flatten the curve!” Check, not that there is any evidence that the curve wouldn’t have been flattened if we did nothing. Well, now many leftists in state and federal government are fighting tooth and nail to not return things to normal. Now it’s “we have to save grandma and cannot have one more death or you will have blood on your hands!” There is a term for this: moving the goal posts. The Covid panic was never about saving people, it was about seizing control and transforming, I would say destroying, the country and society. It has to stop, now!

The April labor report came out today and of course it was quite ugly. Unemployment as reported soared to 14% in the month but in reality it sits closer to 20%. Some interesting side notes came out as well. Women are being harder hit that men by the tune of 2%. Also disproportionately impacted were low income workers and minorities. Soon we are going to hear from the left: “Covid is not only racist it’s sexist!” No, but the idiotic draconian policies being enacted by corrupt leftist politicians and championed by their dishonest toadies in the left-wing media ARE in fact racist and sexist, if anything involving this mess is. Food for thought.

Here is more lunacy:

https://www.breitbart.com/education/2020/05/07/yale-scientist-reopening-america-is-awfully-close-to-genocide/

Reopening the country is genocide! Who knew! No, but not reopening might be. Once again, a leftist sewer-dweller is projecting.

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/governor-pritzkers-plan-reopen-illinois-makes-no-sense

Illinois’ buffoon of a governor will destroy that state.

Covid deaths likely overstated, possibly by a huge margin.

HUGE! From CDC Website: Hospitals to List COVID-19 as Cause of Death Even if It’s “Assumed to Have Caused Or Contributed to Death” – Lab Tests Not Required

The CD’s own website lists over 5000 “probable” deaths. This is not medical science. It is propaganda.

Perhaps The Best Article Yet On Leftist Tyrants In The US

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2020/04/13/the-rise-of-karenism-means-this-lockdown-nonsense-needs-to-end-soon-n2566769

Now, my additional comments.

Fact: so far the “sky-is-falling” models have grossly over-stated the severity of the Corona Virus epidemic.

Fact: we have caused untold damage to country’s economy and psyche.

Fact: other causes of death have mysteriously plummeted in the US. Over-counting of Covid deaths?

Fact: to date Covid has caused far fewer deaths in the US than a normal, not severe flu.

Fact: healthy people rarely die or even get sick from Covid.

Fact: leftists in state and local government are taking advantage of this “crisis” to pass illegal and unconstitutional edicts. Perhaps the country’s worst offender is Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer.

Speculation: when this is over we will view this as one of the greatest cons ever to be foisted upon the American people. I rarely deal in absolutes but I say it is at least 50/50 that this is the result. The “models” predicting a million deaths, then 200,000 “best case” are now at 60,000, and I will take the “under”. We have hurt many people financially, mentally and physically. People will die (or already have) because of our reaction to Covid, not IN SPITE OF it. We have bankrupted businesses, we have ruined the school year for our children and young adults, we have handed over our many freedoms, and on and on. We have allowed medical bureaucrats and corrupt politicians to take over the country, all the while lining their pockets and grabbing power.

Nobody said we have a right to a risk-free existence, but that is what many seem to be selling.

Sadly There Is A Lot Of Healthcare Misinformation Going Around

And much of it seems aimed solely at damaging the current president. No, the country is not at full capacity in its hospital system. In fact, in areas where Covid outbreaks are minimal, hospitals and medical facilities are empty, apparently causing cutbacks and even layoffs. The behavior here is obvious as the corrupt media (mostly left but including some on the right) have terrified people to the point they won’t seek healthcare unless it is critical. Now some of this is positive as it has freed up capacity in hot spots, and it is well known that many older people tend to unnecessarily be “frequent flyers”.

Ground Reports – Healthcare Focus – What’s Going On In Your City, Town, Neighborhood?…

Then there is this:

https://thefederalist.com/2020/04/06/cbs-news-posts-fraudulent-video-icu-nurse-crying-over-poor-working-conditions/

Poorly sourced, dishonest stories about nurses and doctors in crisis.

https://thefederalist.com/2020/04/06/cbs-news-posts-fraudulent-video-icu-nurse-crying-over-poor-working-conditions/

This does a disservice to all those professionals working their tails off, unnecessarily creates panic, and ultimately damages media credibility even more, not that media has much of that left.
