Trump as Dog Whistle for Sweden

A virus that has proved quite inconsiderate of lockdowns and social distancing continues to be used as an excuse for tyrannical impositions of arbitrary state authority over absolutely every aspect of ordinary human life and interaction. A virus from China that has proved far less dire and deadly than the Western media had hoped and prayed and propagandized continues to be cited as...

Headlines I Nearly Read Today

Trump admits he hid the virus because he thought it would only kill Democrats.

COVID-19 invades the brain, makes victims feel like they have a bad flu.

Biden promises if elected, he will mandate private isolation chambers for all Americans.

Polls show Biden now leading Trump by triple digits.

Watch out, the last wave is a doozy!

You have been hearing it for months. It has been a constant background chatter, a shiver at the surface of daily life. It insinuates itself into almost every conversation with relatives, old friends, coworkers, random acquaintances. “This virus is so frightening.” “I’m worried about my kids getting this thing.” “What scares me is the second wave — that might be even worse!” Late...

In the theatre, they call this “emoting”

Puke Alert: The following post includes a graphic description of actual content from The New York Times. The world’s leading media voice for international communist totalitarianism, in the most glaringly disrespectful, cynical, life-disavowing act of agitprop since those famous pictures of Joseph Stalin smiling with a happy little girl in his arms, has decided to fill its first page on Sunday, May 24th,...

The Disturbing Effects of Surviving…

Hardly a day goes by now without three or four prominent human interest stories making the rounds, in which coronavirus “survivors” detail their ordeals, usually featuring before and after shots meant to alarm the universe with how terrible they looked while sick — which perhaps wouldn’t be so alarming if we were all in the habit of photographing ourselves while lying in bed...

America Bows Her Head

In keeping with his stellar performance as the first self-styled wartime president to simultaneously deny that there is a war, Donald Trump has ordered that flags at all federal buildings and Navy vessels be lowered to half-staff in honor of those who have died of COVID-19.  Why? Amusingly, I notice that CNN actually reports this as “Donald Trump has finally ordered flags to...

The Coronavirus Lexicon: A Dictionary of Mass Manipulation

Advisory: A command from the rulers, based on the recommendations of their experts. (See “recommendation.”) Co-morbid: A non-coronavirus-related illness that a patient already has, and that was likely to cause the patient’s death independently of that patient’s contracting the coronavirus. COVID-19 death: a death, usually (though not necessarily) one involving a person who was found to have contracted the new coronavirus (with or...

Hey Everyone, It’s “Totalitarian Slogan Time!”

I clicked on an article from USA Today — a most aptly named rag at this moment — not to read the story, of course, but to see the pictures. Two pictures, to be precise. The first is a lighted roadside sign, the kind that normally says things like, “Church potluck at 7pm,” or “Everyone welcome.” This one reads, “Keep Social Distancing.” And...

Let’s See Trump Top THIS!

Man, oh, man, if this video from North Korean state television is any indication, 2020 promises to be one of the coolest years ever! Kim Jong Un riding across the gorgeous Paektu Mountain landscape on a white horse! With his whole dang entourage riding along with him. Now this is my kind of propaganda video. I grew up on this stuff. I mean...

Fake News

Some old fart decides to confront a bunch of high school students in MAGA hats. The teenagers try to act cool, hiding behind the safety of numbers to mock the confrontational old fart. In other words, a normal afternoon in any residential neighborhood in America; this is crabby Mr. Smith who lives on the corner, shouting over the fence at the noisy kids...
