Having discovered that Americans have lost their spines and are now easily penned inside their homes like two-legged sheep, the petty potentates who rule—not govern, rule—far too many states and municipalities have concluded that we will never fight back, never resist, and never reject their latest whimsical edicts.
For proof, look no farther than California, where 41 of the state’s 58 counties have just been returned to most-restricted status, and a statewide curfew is now being bruited in Sacramento. The state is “pulling an emergency brake,” as CCP virus “cases” rise, said Gov. Gavin Newsom, who recently attended a pricey private birthday party at the exclusive French Laundry restaurant in the Napa Valley, violating his own Caligulan guidelines.
There are vague promises that things might begin to open again next year, but don’t hold your breath.
“Two weeks to slow the spread” and “15 days to flatten the curve” have long since morphed into a semi-permanent nanny state, in which the very act of slowing and flattening ensures that the virus will go on indefinitely by guaranteeing a continuous stream of new “cases” with which to frighten the public and increase government power.
In defiance of all previous medical experience, the COVID-19 “pandemic” has muzzled the population with bank-robber masks, driven families asunder, forced elderly couples to die apart, punished schoolchildren with the false promise of “remote learning,” made Americans eye each other with suspicion and sidle away, and created a near-Stasi level of rats and snitches only too happy to inform on their fellow citizens.
It’s also killed the hospitality industry, the airlines, and commercial real estate—all in brazen violation of the Constitution’s explicit guarantees of freedom of speech, assembly, and religious observance.
It’s been a monstrous disgrace, made even worse by its supine acceptance. But even more dire consequences have followed the arrival of the Chinese Communist Party on our shores. In short order:
Masks became normalized, even mandated, thus allowing the brutal, cowardly thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter “activists” to go about in public in ninja mufti, faces concealed in violation of innumerable local ordinances. Once, the wearing of a concealing mask was practically prima facie proof of criminal intent, but now, thanks to the irresponsible and self-aggrandizing Dr. Anthony Fauci and other “experts,” the lack of a mask signals an inability to accept authority and perhaps also a willingness to expel the phantom virus into the faces of the innocent.
With the public rise of the neo-fascist left in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, urban disorder became mainstreamed, justified as it was by calling it “mostly peaceful” protest against the United States and its form of government. Even as private gatherings were being banned, thousands gathered in the streets to demonstrate against the U.S. Constitution and celebrate President Donald Trump’s apparent electoral defeat.
Indeed, “Black Lives Plaza,” on one of the most expensive blocks in Washington, violates private property and civil rights within sight of the White House.
Watching the videos of patriotic Americans who had gathered in Washington over the weekend to show support for Trump’s efforts to legally fight clear vote fraud in the recent election—as is his constitutional right—and who were then set upon, sucker-punched, and otherwise assaulted by the feral minions of Antifa and Black Lives Matter within sight of the White House, was sickening and enraging.
Once actual peaceful protest had become essentially forbidden, the red-diaper baby media was free to shed its skin-suit of journalistic “objectivity.” They enthusiastically joined the leftist cadres in its open loathing of Trump and all that he symbolizes, and renew its attack on the Constitution, including among other things, the Electoral College, the Senate, and the Bill of Rights.
All in the name of a more “honest” journalism adhering to a “higher loyalty,” of course.
Indeed, The New York Times—Pravda West—in the run-up to the election informed the nation via Twitter that it would be the media that would call the winner of the 2020 election, even before the votes were counted, certified, and sent to the Electoral College.
“The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the media,” the Democrat propaganda sheet masquerading as a newspaper proclaimed, falsely. It later deleted the tweet and issued a sheepish “apology” for “referring imprecisely to the role of the news media. … [It] projects winners and reports results; it does not declare the winner of the election.”
