Right wing protesters want to know why “social distancing” means keeping six feet away from other people. I thought the rough guideline was supposed to be my height (I’m 5’11” and about a half, 182 centimeters for you dirty foreigners) added to Trump’s dick size.
I don’t quite get the need for the semi-automatic rifles. Protests at state capital buildings in the Midwest in front of the media are usually pretty safe. The only thing I can imagine is that he’s planning on shooting the virus if the virus ever gets too close. Viruses are usually pretty small, but I guess he bought a really high powered microscopic scope at Cabela’s before Obama got around to making them illegal. American Virus Sniper! USA! USA! USA!
But just to be fair to my inbred, redneck cracker fellow Americans, and show that I’m not a bi-coastal elitist snob, I suppose I should point out that liberals on social media seem to think that the protest was organized by “pro-Assad” agents from Russia.
To be honest, I don’t quite know why Gretchen Whitmer is allowing these obviously moronic “open-carry” demonstrations to go on in the middle of a pandemic. The police in New York City ban protests all the time for reasons of “public safety.” It all feels like professional wrestling, like a big circus. Whitmer (the daughter of the CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield), who’s probably going to be Biden’s Vice Presidential pick, probably wants to let the Democratic Party base know how much Trump supporters hate her guts. In any event, she’s putting the Capitol police, and other state employees, in East Lansing in danger. The right wing (and obviously astroturfed) protesters, in turn, want everybody to know that it’s not the President, or the virus, or the virus currently sitting in the White House, who’s infringing on our “liberties,” but Democratic governors.
Meanwhile, the Mayor of New York has been accused of “antisemitism” for telling ultra-orthodox Jews to stay inside.
There’s no way to read your tweet from Tuesday night in an exculpatory fashion. Here it is: “My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.”
In other words, DeBlasio is doing exactly what Gretchen Whitmer should be doing herself, getting the morons off the streets, and everybody’s calling him a Nazi.Can we really blame either the rednecks in Michigan or the Hasidics in Brooklyn for not taking the pandemic seriously enough? The politicians and the media are treating it all like it’s one big opportunity to grandstand and to attack their ideological enemies.
I really have to get around to investigating whether my grandmother makes me eligible for Lithuanian citizens (relax liberals, Lithuanians hate Russians). The USA USA USA has just gotten too stupid.
