Strange Daze

The 1619 Project is a power play in which, at great expense in both money and reputation, The New York Times has attempted to intensify racial resentment and accelerate identity politics. The timing and the circumstances suggest the Times considered this a good move in rallying black opposition to President Trump, but it was also a move by the editors to appease its own increasingly belligerent faction of minority staff.

The only place that Coronavirus will live on is in the tiresome conversations of people who didn’t get the apocalypse they were hoping for. The people who only derive self-worth from pontificating about the tragedies they’ve survived; whose identities are so enmeshed with politics and social media that they can only communicate in buzzwords and memes. They’ll be standing in a healthy world, downtown somewhere, amid bustling commerce, noise, and a complete return to normal, and still talking about the Coronavirus as a lurking threat to humanity and the future of Lululemon. “We shouldn’t let our guard down,” they’ll love to say. If you’re talking like that, your perimeter’s already been breached; you never got your guard up in time to begin with. The PVP Diaries #38 – Andy Havens

Who needs to win elections when you can personally reestablish the social order every day on Twitter and Facebook? When you can scold, and scold, and scold. That’s their future, and it’s a satisfying one: a finger wagging in some vulgar proletarian’s face, forever.

Chinese Lies Update For May 6, 2020 Time for another roundup of Chinese lies and perfidy!

The first priority is to keep the CPC in power. Xi has never seen the party as a transition mechanism to some sort of democracy or semi-democracy. Rather, he sees China’s unique form of authoritarian capitalism as essential for its future great-power status, and as a model that could potentially be applicable to other parts of the world.

Twitter Will Now Warn You If You Are About to Post Wrongthink“When things get heated, you may say things you don’t mean,” wrote Twitter’s official support account in a tweet yesterday.“To let you rethink a reply, we’re running a limited experiment on iOS with a prompt that gives you the option to revise your reply before it’s published if it uses language that could be harmful.”

Susan at Havens notes: ‘We have a 4 phase plan to reopen the state. The plan will be a phased plan that we will plan to utilize in phases. The phases will be planned and the planning will be phased. We will move quickly and slowly to open but remain closed. I have created a staff of staffers who will plan the phase and planning while phasing their phases. And that is our re-opening plan.’

The daily count of deaths from the Red Chinese Batflu among the prized, scare-mongering features of our mass media. I am among those who consider these numbers to be significantly overstated, for a reason that Nikolai Gogol would understand. Each corpse is worth cash to some public authority, usually from a higher authority; and as always, finally from the taxpayers.

The woman lives with her husband and their children in another house.

    The ChiComs are evil!

    Ok, the ChiComs are evil. The US Government, also, is evil. EU? State of California, Illinois, New York?

    The difference is the ChiComs, while evil, don’t actively hate their own people. Must be nice to have a government like that.

    At the end of the Trump impeachment circus I asked, here, what will the next big LAL (Lying Assed Liars) made up, hyped theatrical performance be.

    Now that the virus scam is receding in the rearview mirror I ask again, “What will the next big LAL nervous break down be about?”

    “…didn’t get the apocalypse they were hoping for. ”

    That statement isn’t going to age well. Has he not seen what is happening in NY and now beginning to do the same in a few other places. This virus is just getting started. IN two months the deaths in the U.S. will exceed 150,000 and show no signs of slowing.

    I told you 6 weeks ago and I’ll tell you again, the virus was created in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

    Am I the only on to notice that those on the right aren’t all that afraid of dying, while those on the left are terrified of it?

    There’s a *bunch* of Chinese Moslems who might dispute that…

    At least Neil Ferguson had a good reason for breaking his quarantine, unlike the Texas hairdresser who put the selfish need to feed her children above the common good.

    Viruses don’t work like that, and you don’t have to take my word for it. Lots of experts will tell you the same thing. Highly contagious=low fatality. High fatality=low contagiousness. They all run that bell shaped curve and we are already starting to see the drop off. If we had done what we really needed to do, which was to protect the people in nursing homes and care centers, you see half the deaths. Worldwide, about half the deaths are from the elderly, with co-morbidities
