Stealing Our Souls

By mike flugennockSaturday - August 28th, 2021Categories: Health Care, Trumpism, coronavirus, media, right wingnuts

There’s a new strain of Covidiot virus going around among healthcare workers — proof that Stupid can strike any of us, though if you consider how long it takes to become a doctor vs. how long it takes to become a nurse, it all makes sense.

There have been a couple of outbreaks of the new Stupid Variant in the past week, in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and in New York. A close read of the thread in which Max Blumenthal tweets the NYT article tells me, personally, that Blumenthal is about to dive down the anti-vax rabbit hole if he hasn’t already. He seems to imply at one point that PhD’s were among the most reluctant to take the vaccine, which proves nothing except that having a PhD doesn’t make you immune to the Stupid Variant — nor does not being a Trumpster.

But, back to the outbreaks of Covidiot Virus. You know how back in the 1970s and ’80s you’d read every so often about some National Geographic documentary crew going deep into the Amazon jungle or someplace and encountering some tribe that’s lived in isolation for a thousand years, and they see the cameras and video images of themselves for the first time and freak out because they think the cameras are stealing their souls? Well, how different is that from these doorknobs who think that Bill Gates is putting microchips in vaccines, or that taking cow dewormer and shitting out your stomach lining will cure Covid-19?

At Last!

Despite the vaccine, we’re still getting sick and dying in huge numbers out here. We’re also still unemployed or trapped in shit jobs, or being thrown out of work, about to lose our homes. Some of us are already homeless and our poverty has been criminalized. Some of us are being murdered by the police.

In the face of all this, what’s Priority One for the Democratic Party?

Giant asteroid hurtles toward Earth. A liberal basks in the glow, “Now Trump is going to pay!”

Yep, you guessed it. Their empty-ass January 6 show investigation which will achieve absolute zero, and which will be dragged out clear into the midterms to raise money.

Meanwhile, in Miami…

Meanwhile, in Miami, the pro-Cuban “democracy movement” consists mostly of pissed-off gusanos who want their grandfathers’ casinos back.

Weird how this just keeps happening

And recently, the gusanos’ scrawny-ass rallies in support of the US-instigated Cuban “color revolution” have featured large numbers of the “Proud Boys” fascist gang — along with other assorted Trumpsters and January 6th insurrectionists — and the gusanos don’t seem to give a rat’s ass one way or the other, likely because they’re a bunch of fascists themselves. It’s so obvious at this point that you could hang a lampshade on it.

Just as in the 1930s — scratch an anti-communist, find a fascist.
