#7273: The mayor of Portland is utterly delusional

He claims there is "no place for looting, arson, or valdalism in our city" and further asserts that, "Those who commit criminal acts will be apprehended and prosecuted under the law."

How odd, then, that there have been over two months of rioting and arson and vandalism in Portland. Maybe we're all confused and it's Portland, Maine where all the nonsense is occuring?

In his letter he strongly implies that the reports out of his city are "images of violence or vandalism" that are fictional, which he furthe supports by claiming that "tens of thousands of Portlanders have peacefully protested and marched" there. The fact that businesses are bailing out of Portland at record speed would seem to belie the truth of the communist violence that's taking place there.

So, let's go ahead and do the in-depth on Kyle Rittenhouse, the seventeen-year-old HERO who perforated three commie bastards in Kenosha, killing two of them.

I'm saying "hero" because I am flat-out amazed at the kid's trigger discipline and coolness under fire. Let's face it: if I had found myself fighting someone who had a pistol I would not have stopped after nearly blowing his arm off; I would have kept shooting out of sheer panic.

So we'll start with this piece. Here's a great quote:
The reaction from the Leftist-controlled media is proof--if you’re not taking flak, you're not over the target. The Kyle Rittenhouse story scares them to death. A young man, with a gun, saves his own life while trying to do the right thing. The biggest irony is that every bit of information about the people he allegedly killed or wounded shows that these people, like George Floyd, like Jacob Blake (allegedly shot seven times while allegedly going for a weapon after allegedly resisting arrest in Kenosha) appear to be failed human beings. Drug addicts. Violent. Pedophiles. Wow, the Left sure chooses heroes from the wrong side of the track.
The first commie Kyle shot dead was a convicted pedophile. The second commie he shot dead was convicted on several counts of domestic violence, including choking/strangulation. The third commie he shot was also an ex-convict, having been found guilty of various crimes including a gun crime, and he was illegally carrying the pistol he waved uselessly in Kyle's face as if it were some kind of magic talisman.

Now we are told by one of his friends that "Lefty" regrets not ventilating Kyle when he had the chance.

If the bullet had struck him one inch lower, Lefty would have lost that arm. But that two-second clip demonstrates quite handily that Kyle Rittenhouse was not there to commit murder, and that when chased by communists and attacked he used the minimum amount of force necessary to defend himself.

Here is someone who understands the situation.
These are now Joe Biden's riots. These are Nancy Pelosi's riots. These are Kamala Harris's riots.

So keep pushing your precious narrative. You can't stop what you have started. You can't control or channel it. Today or tomorrow, eventually it will swallow you up and eat you. If every Republican was put on the firing line tomorrow, the next step for the Marxist racialists would be to attack the smiling liberals of our elderly institutional leadership. Big Corporate would be burned to the ground. Companies like Amazon would be gutted and cannibalized.
The very next step in any marxist coup is to kill the intellectuals and the useful idiots. They've served their purpose, and if left alive they will only cause trouble for the new regime.

So, professional basketball players decided not to play basketball games because they're black, and they want to protest the fact that a black criminal got shot while resisting arrest.

I find it amusing that these people--who do not provide a necessary service, who do not produce anything of substance, who are very highly paid to play a game--are so eager to demonstrate just how little our society actually needs them. Because of the overreaction to COVID-19, very few professional sports matches have gone on this year. There are people who miss them, but there are many, many more who realized they could get along just fine without the latest sportsball game.

And so at a time when professional basketball is being outwatched by Rachel fucking Maddow on MSNBC, these clowns decide they're going to go on strike.

I'm not exaggerating. NBA ratings are down fifty-four percent. They've lost more than half their audience in the wake of COVID-19! So what do they do? They get political, so much so that they're certain to alienate a good chunk of their remaining audience. No one tunes into sportsball games to hear about your politics, you shitheads.

And not to put too fine a point on it, but why don't these basketball players care about the 400+ black people shot in Chicago this year who weren't shot by police, but by other black people? Why do they only care about the shooting of a knife-wielding pedophile?

I'm seeing this poem a lot lately. I wonder why?

Anyway it beats that "Second Coming" Yeats nonsense.

The facts of bullying. Amen to every last bullet point in that list.

The only way to stop a bully is to feed him his own teeth.

Asked the question about the perforated black pedophile with a knife, Biden gives the answer for the question about Kyle Rittenhouse instead. Questions and answers OBVIOUSLY agreed upon beforehand, and to answer the questions all Biden has to do is read the correct answer aloud, and HE STILL CAN'T MANAGE TO DO IT because his brain is turning into cottage cheese.

I don't know why, but today just seemed physically difficult. I'm glad the day is done and the weekend is here, so I can relax.

Tomorrow it will be cooler, so I will go work on the cupola base and so forth. Hope to have the thing all back together by Monday; we'll see.

Today seemed hotter than yesterday, but it really was not. In any case the Jeep's repaired AC kept me comfortable when I drove both to and from my far offsite, so I've got that going for me.

Also hoping to get the sway bar end links put in this weekend. Tired of the front end feeling so squirrely.

But! Friday night, and I'm home, and relaxing. More, I cannot ask.
