it’s bad enough watching cut rate comandantes like andy cuomo dissemble about how the very mandates they tried to hide from the justice department for fear of looking bad or getting prosecuted were proven right.
but watching the rubes in the audience rise in stalinesque applause because the big man has deigned to grant them their own allegedly inalienable liberties again is enough to really drive a gato to despair.
they learned nothing apart from how to collaborate with authoritarians and to like it because it gave them power.
these are the people who will be in vanguard the next time this gang of villains comes for us, the gleeful brownshirts of the fascist movement.
remember who they were. you’ll be seeing them again. no one does this once without getting a taste for it.
The left has a history of embracing fascism. That is where collectivism inevitably goes. Collectivist cultures invite hall monitors. That's how you get ahead/power, and us humans want power. Some more than others.
NJ and NY have the highest death rates from Covid in the US, and some of the highest in the world. If that is success, what does failure look like?
The bootlicking has been off the charts. A few weeks of cheerful non-compliance would have seen the cretinous Cuomo backing down.
el gato: do you think it's solely power for powers sake? that health official for Dutchess County, NY is consciously, or sub-consciously thinking "let's see what we can get away with"?
I read the 'regulations' of the Howard Co MD health dept was specifying how to safely sing in church. All sorts of specificity that didn't make sense.
Is this solely just small people, who can now wield power, so they're gonna? Or rather the overly organized type who like to organize functions, well meaning, but fucking things up 'for the peoples own good'
I just have to hope that the CCP bots are out in force today. If these are Americans we're fucked.
Gato, why do you think the US seems to be moving on much faster than Europe? Israel also seems to be moving on. Meanwhile in the EU the powers that be just ratified Covid passports, with the possibility of internal uses, the UK has quarantine facilities in airports, and here in Portugal the government in dangling the possibility of reversing lockdown easing in Lisbon.
Newsome will be the net "hero"- so inept are they.
