Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Left

Big Lefty has already made its first wave assault, so stand by for little left.  I read there’s a wave of strikes coming.  The whole damned Acorn, OFA, #Occupy, #Antifa rabble is going to mobilize.

I hope the right has its stuff together, by which I mean food, fuel, and ammo.  The Communists and their American footsoldiers, our domestic enemies, will not refrain from their pursuit just because there’s a crisis — just the opposite.  This is an excellent crisis for the left, and it will not go to waste.

  1. Whole Foods Strike Tuesday:  https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/5dmeka/whole-foods-employees-are-staging-a-nationwide-sick-out

    A single Amazon facility was out today: https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/29/tech/amazon-workers-walkout-coronavirus/index.html

    Agitation for “rent strike”: https://apnews.com/1bd0dccae3f84e380af62b3dd91ee26e

    Mobilization is my own conjecture.  They can’t afford *not* to make this crisis into a political disaster.  Isolation from humans, overexposure to echo chambers, boredom, anger and Joe Biden Syndrome should make for a blistering cabin fever.

  2. What worries me about this crisis is the lack of coming together as a country? There is too much partisanship. I am not getting those vibes in Japan. Japanese are pretty stoic.

    I fully endorse punishing Whole Foods, that commie vegan hippie market. Irony.

    Also good news. The leftists are hurting each other. May they visit misery on their comrades. Maybe Cuomo will crush them under his jackboot.

    Our “leaders” had better get a grip on this situation soon because the unthinkable is suddenly becoming the new normal. And by “get a grip” I mean end shelter-in-place. In my area, I am seeing people openly violating some of the orders (entering closed areas) and the cops don’t do anything. And this after they’ve only been closed for three days.

    The Japanese are also homogeneous. They haven’t been shamed by the victim squad yet nor have they had several decades of multiculturalism shoved down their throats. A lot of Americans are stoic but too many (mostly in cities with really expensive degrees) have bought into the notion that “Western civilization is evil”, “Straight, white men are responsible for everything bad in the world” narrative which divides people.  Couple that with a completely corrupt media, and Democrat party who also feed into the division. In addition we have a younger generation who feel entitled to things because…. well, they are alive. It’s not a good combination.

    I notice more respect for family and authority here. I suppose that is saying the same thing for you can’t have one without the other.

    Dime, why so shocked? The United States has made it policy to pit groups of people against one another. The progressives did it in the early 20th by pitting the “worker” against the “factory owner,” the Boomers did it with “blacks” vs. “whites,” “women” vs “patriarchy,” and still “worker” vs “rich.” We are divided as a matter of public policy–we just did our Census form yesterday and you are a better man than me if you can explain why it matters what race and sex we are for the purposes of counting to determine representative apportionment. There is no shock here that we cannot come together as “one nation” (it also puts to bed the notion that there ever really was “one nation”).

    “The bird of our country is a debilitated chicken, disguised in eagle feathers. We have never been a nation. We are only an aggregate of communities, ready to fall apart at the first serious shock.”

    I would say that to be worried, one has to not foresee the shocking event. If you can anticipate your enemy’s moves, then you don’t have to be worried about what he is going to do. Worry, seems to me to be an outcropping of shock.

    I worry about things that don’t shock me. I don’t connect the two.

  10. The only cure here to prevent civil war is we are in a significant election year. There are two kinds of Governors emerging- those who have no agenda but not to fail and are overreacting and acting like autocrats without a plan, and those who have a plan , respect all their citizens and act like an autocrat only when necessary.

    We will all remember these folks in November. If they postpone the election, then the guns come out.
