Auditioning for QAnon

By mike flugennockFriday - June 11th, 2021Categories: Bidenism, Health Care, coronavirus, media

This time last year, it was Tom Cotton, Steve Bannon and those doorknobs at the Epoch Fail — uh, sorry, Epoch Times — pushing the 100% evidence-free “Wuhan Lab Leak” conspiracy batshittery, and the Washington Post — along with anyone else with two synapses to rub together — were laughing that shit right outta the room.

So, this past week, it was with more than a little begrudging awe that I watched the Democratic Party, the Washington Post, CNN, Wall Street Journal and friends slam on the brakes, jerk the wheel around, kick in the afterburners and execute a full 180° Emergency Bat-Turn on the Wuhan Lab Leak zaniness. China’s the new Enemy Of The Month, and Gropin’ Joe needs some dirt on China, so they’re dragging Steve Bannon’s dirty hot mess out of the dumpster.

If you’re old enough to recall Gropin’ Joe’s role in the Drug War, and him firing a bunch of White House staffers earlier this year for having once smoked marijuana, then you aren’t the least bit surprised to see him screwing over DC by siding with fascists… oh, I’m sorry, the GOP… against the citizens of DC — who, I might remind you, voted 70% to legalize cannabis.

…which somehow brings us around to Gropin’ Joe’s love of ice cream — and his new favorite flavor, the “Brain Freeze”…

Mow The Lawn

So, the other day I’m doomscrolling the news from Gaza, and I stumbled over this 8 year-old Truthout article that somebody dug up and tweeted. The callousness of Washington foreign-policy think tanks — and the Israeli general public — is perversely spectacular:

Israeli hardliners joke about the periodic need to decimate each new generation of Palestinian militants as “mowing the grass,” a process underway again in new bombardments of Gaza. This ugly metaphor has also penetrated the think-tank world of Official Washington, as ex-CIA analyst Elizabeth Murray learned.

In early 2010, one of Washington DC’s most prestigious think tanks was holding a seminar on the Middle East which included a discussion of Israel’s December 2008-January 2009 assault on Gaza which killed about 1,300 Palestinians. When the death toll was mentioned, one expert on the panel smiled enigmatically and intoned: “It’s unfortunate, but every once in a while you have to mow the lawn.”
