Newsflash: Margie Greene Banned from Facebook! Investors move stock to the buy column. But it’s only temporary. After some arbitrary time period, she will be allowed to return and start it up all over again. Fascism isn’t about having their own picnic; it’s about ruining yours.
During the dying days of the Weimar Republic, the Nazi Brown shirts took to the streets. A club where breaking a few heads, wasn’t at all discouraged. For fun on a dull day, the Brown shirts would break up political meetings. Show up at a Catholic Party event and punch a few old ladies or a Priest and shout, “wait till next time!” Having the desired effect on voter turnout, the Brown shirts became experts at breaking up rallies.
One day, they heard the Communists were having a rally. Twenty-five or thirty shirts jumped into the truck and off they went. Kicking in the door to find their information was correct all right, but not specific enough. This was a Young Men’s Communist Rally, 200 strong. The Brown shirts beat hasty retreat to their truck, but not without being given parting gifts in the form of ass kicking’s from the mob.
As they nursed their wounds, they began to think about it. The Brown shirts realized that they were wasting effort. When they broke up a rally, the other side got all the sympathetic press. Breaking up rallies was fun and all but carried the risk of getting your ass kicked, jail, or worse. Henceforth, they would only break up their own rallies. Then they could be the victims, and shout, “look what those dirty Communist have done to our meeting!”
Staged like a professional wrestling match with the bad guys always winning in the end, with a bloody nose and overturned lectern. So, it wasn’t hard to accept later down the road, that some crazy Communist had burned down the Reichstag. Histories bell a ringing as the January 6th seditionists attack the Capital and blame Antifa and Black Lives Matters. They are all led by Communists, you know. It was just people who looked just like us and regurgitated all the same lines verbatim, that they’d heard on Faux News. But it wasn’t us.
Margie immediately reverts to the victim card. “Beyond censorship of speech.” Marge fund raises off of this crap like Jerry’s Kids. “Them liberals is trying ta silence me! Them Facebook warnings was politically motivated, cause they don’t want me to tell you the truth. The cattle wormer was give to us by them space Aliens! Won’t you please help? Any donation of $50 or $100 or $1,500 will help save the world from them dastardly Liberals!”
Death ray Ron DeSantis, Florida Reich’s Fuhrer stung by criticism for his silence in the face of soaring Covid -19 cases, comes out swinging. Blaming the Feds and the Biden Administration for their “Do stuff” approach to the pandemic.
“In terms of Florida, you look what’s going on in other states, they’re letting hysteria drive them to doing really damaging things. We thought that people had learned. They’re closing schools, they’re doing things that should not be done. That is not the way you deal with this.” – Death ray Ron DeSantis
Public health officials advise the omicron variety might require better face masks. Death ray Ron says, See, I told you masks don’t work. Ron prefers monoclonal antibodies which on good day, only speeds the recovery of those already infected. If your goal is to end the pandemic, they don’t do shit! Now Death ray Ron, calls himself a Conservative because he doesn’t like to go throwing the taxpayers money away Willie nilly. The cheapest monoclonal antibodies cost around $3,000 per treatment. The good stuff is almost $12,000 per treatment. A Covid vaccination costs the Federal government between $30 to $40 bucks to manufacture. Any questions?
In an effort to change the subject, Death ray Ron, says the government’s pausing of shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies was politically motivated. While officials maintain the omicron variant is less susceptible to the antibodies. But the Fed’s are paying the tab, it’s their money you’re spending. Always the victim, “Whaa! They won’t let me spend their money the way I want!”
One of the perks in being a state Governor is that if you say something stupid. You have employees on staff with official titles to come out and defend you. Enter, State Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo. (Lapdog) The same doctor criticized for promoting the same theories, which got our little Margie banned from Facebook. He wrote Health and Human Services a scathing letter trying to straighten them out about treatment practices. And not surprisingly, the letter looks remarkably like it was written by Death ray Ron himself.
Dr. Lapdog said, “unwind the testing mentality the federal government has gotten us into over the last two years,” Maybe use tea leaves or I Ching to determine positivity rates. They want to unwind the testing, because the testing only makes them look bad.
So, it is not surprising Death ray Ronny lashes out, claiming the quarantine of students is bad policy. He’s not stupid. He knows his policy will only further infections, illness, and death. But when you’ve earned your stripes as an anti-mask, anti-vax warrior, what does he care, if a few thousand more peasants die needlessly? The more people that get sick, the more he can blame the Federal government and claim the mantle as the poor put-upon victim.
This do nothing and see what happens next is not an agenda in a Klien bottle. But active and vibrant in the Fascist Party. Under the tenents of neo-liberalism, all society is an artificial construct. You are not your brother’s keeper and that woman’s nothing special, she’s just the woman who gave birth to you. Because society is artificial, like the Mickey Mouse Club. The wealthy and the affluent, the Duke and Earl, see no reason to play along by paying taxes to your little club.
When a pandemic strikes, you simply pull up the drawbridge and let the virus ravage the peasants, until it burns itself out after thirty or forty years. Why should they spend their money trying to save another worthless peasant life, like yours?
“I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes the noisy handful is right, sometimes wrong; but no matter, the crowd follows it. The vast majority of the race, whether savage or civilized, are secretly kind-hearted and shrink from inflicting pain, but in the presence of the aggressive and pitiless minority they don’t dare to assert themselves. Think of it! One kind-hearted creature spies upon another, and sees to it that he loyally helps in iniquities which revolt both of them.
Speaking as an expert, I know that ninety- nine out of a hundred of your race were strongly against the killing of witches when that foolishness was first agitated by a handful of pious lunatics in the long ago. And I know that even to-day, after ages of transmitted prejudice and silly teaching, only one person in twenty puts any real heart into the harrying of a witch. And yet apparently everybody hates witches and wants them killed. Some day a handful will rise up on the other side and make the most noise–perhaps even a single daring man with a big voice and a determined front will do it–and in a week all the sheep will wheel and follow him, and witch-hunting will come to a sudden end. – Mark Twain
