completely and totally unrelated observations *cough*

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

― Theodore Dalrymple

Elon Musk commented*:

We are a bit worried about not being able to resume production in the Bay Area. The extension of ‘shelter in place,’ or as I would call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes against all constitutional rights, and in my opinion infringing on people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong, and not why people came to America … what the f#ck?

[This] will cause great harm, not just to Tesla but any company — and while Tesla will weather the storm, there are many small companies that will not.

To which the Cucks & Karens reply, “So his concern is about great harm potentially coming to Tesla and other companies, but not great harm that could potentially come to actual human beings.“. Because companies — and Government — are big magykal entities running on their own, not groups of Actual People voluntarily doing stuff. *facepalm*. Are they stoopud? Or just compromised?

Elon made one mistake — which I will forgive him as he is a naturalized citizen [African American, yanno] and may not have gotten this far in his understanding: “This is not freedom, give people back their goddamn freedom”“. Freedom cannot be ‘given back’ as it already belongs to The Individual. It can only be given away.

At this stage, demanding that people wear masks is nothing more than a punitive measure to humiliate the public.

Has anyone else noticed that — in this time when hairdressers are prohibited from plying their ‘extremely dangerous’ profession on us lowly plebes — both NannyP and LadyDiFi have perfectly colored hair? No white ‘skunk stripes’ for them! Aslo, NannyP seems to be freshly botoxed as she peruses her designer chocolate ice cream collection. Rules for thee, not for me.

Butt that’s not really the point, now, is it? PrettyPettyGavin Newsom has lots to say:

‘There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism,’ Gov. Newsom said. ‘So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.’”

uh…. No.

    Gabble Gabble Newsome is going to have a sh*t storm of a problem on his hands, er, right about now. This is a generalization I know, but I get the feeling most lefties are happy about the lock down, and so are not protesting. That means it is center and right leaning people protesting. And conservatives just don’t protest, right? That’s what freaked out so many people about the Tea Party: conservatives protesting meant trouble. That’s why it was stomped down on so hard.

    Well, here we go again. As I tell people in comment sections round the webs “we tried polite, it didn’t work”

    I believe when one is told, “Respect My Authority,” proper etiquette is to response with, “Kiss My Ass.”

    Yes, my mother was in the Navy. Why do you ask?

    Respecting the legitimate authority assigned by constitutions and laws to carry out your duty to preserve, protect, and defend our lives, liberties, property, and pursuit of happiness is one thing…
    Demanding that we respect your assumed authority is quite another.

    If this “authority” you demand respect for was not legitimately assigned by the people, then it is not an actual authority, it is only thuggish, authoritarian bullying.

    King of the Hill is a dangerous game — another may assume the authority to replace you.

    There will be lawsuits coming down the road soon, among other things.

    Update Kate “Karen” Brown, Gruppenfuhrer of Oregon extends her “emergency powers” until early July.

    Like that will work.

    Our government has, demonstrably so, broken the compact under which we all agreed to live: The Constitution.

    People are also waking up to that fact.

    This does not bode well for the future.

    See: Spanish Revolution and those who routinely broke the very constitution they insisted upon.
