#7200: I wonder if there's an ulterior motive

Bar south of town--been there for decades--has "ALL LIVES MATTER" on its sign out front. As a "nonessential business" the place has been closed since whenever JB "Fatass" Pritzker dropped the boot on us.

The Black Lives Matter organization hastily goes into damage control mode after one of their leaders tells the truth on a cable news show. The organization says, "Hawk Newsome has no relation to the Black Lives Matter Global Network."

HAS, present tense. Understand the distinction: they're not saying that he has never had a connection with the organization, only that he currently does not have one. If a reporter were to ask them, "Has he ever had a connection?" the answer would merely be repeated, over and over again, as often as was necessary: "Hawk Newsome has no relation to the Black Lives Matter Global Network."

The truth he told? "If this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it." Which is (as President Trump tweetled) some mixture of sedition, treason, and insurrection. Which is why they had to distance themselves from it, even though it's 100% what they want to do.

The FBI won't get serious about catching them unless Trump wins re-election in November, though.

That's not a gaffe, though. Remember how Obama toured "all fifty-seven states" during his 2008 run? Well, Joe Biden visited those other seven states, and because President Trump is too stupid to know about them they've received no federal aid at all, and they must have had a massive death rate from COVID-19, unprecedented anywhere else in the world!

Eh? What?

Ladies and gentlemen, I am informed that there are not, after all, fifty-seven states, but only fifty states in the United States. Therefore, I guess Biden just got the number wrong, and the mainstream media will completely ignore it because he's not a Republican. Just like they did with all of Obama's gaffes.

"...And so we should remember George Jetson as we pass this bill, because if it had not been for George Clinton's unwilling sacrifice, we might not be able to get rid of Trump, but Georgie Porgie did indeed die because of Trump's Presidency and the FBI has made up the evidence to prove it! We must always remember George Harrison, and vow that every time we see a police officer, we'll remember the name of George Michael!"

Maybe back off on the pandering just a little bit.

The American left seems desperate to emulate the French Revolution because that way they can kill as many right-wingers as they want. That's why the NYT guy didn't bother to mention the inconvenient bit about the revolution eating its own, up to the execution of its own leader.

I don't know. Every time something like this gets out of control, it turns into a mishmash, and the next thing you know everyone is starving.

I'm led to understand that tomorrow is "drive your Jeep naked" day. I will not be participating.

So, huge spike in COVID-19 cases. Almost as if there was something that happened a couple of weeks ago, where people gathered together in large numbers without social distancing or wearing masks. I wonder if we could figure out what that event was by looking at the news stories over the past few weeks...?

* * *

Well, Friday night, and I want to go relax, so I think I will.
