Found this in a comment somewhere, sorry I cannot attribute properly. It is an excellent overview of the chinaVirus and our silly ass response*, with a side of mask wearing thrown in.
It’s youtube, probably be wiped soon…
*criminal response is more likely
Thanks for this.
Some interesting things I was not thinking about myself.
Welcome. Quite good I thought.
*shrug* The mainstream education system and academia are busily destroying themselves – because of COVID panic.
* Hollywood is collapsing along with the theater distribution system because people aren’t going to movies – because of COVID panic.
* Big publishing is collapsing because their main distributor, Diamond, isn’t distributing – because of COVID panic.
* Sportsball is collapsing because seasons are being postponed or cancelled – because of COVID panic.
* The big Democrat urban hives are busily destroying themselves – because of their going from COVID panic to Burn-Loot-Murder riots to COVID panic again.
Don’t know about y’all, but I’m starting to root for the virus.
Alas, Commies always pull everything down around them, but we’re in this Country together and it’s going to take a lot of work to keep them from dragging us into their Dumpster Fires.
For instance: Theaters not being open.
That means Ushers, popcorn vendors, ticket takers, projectionists, and everyone else that work in a theater day to day aren’t working.
*shrug* We’ve talked a lot, here and elsewhere, about the need to dismantle the education system and academia, Hollywood and the entertainment industry, big publishing, and the media in order to have any hope of saving ourselves and our way of life from their dumpster fires.
What. Did you think that it was going to be possible to do any of that without collateral damage?
Well, I think the idea that we could stop Big Hollywood by simply ending movies is not going to work.
At some point movie theaters will work or else Hollywood will simply beam into our Home Theaters.
People will still watch Big Hollywood, just the delivery system will change. It was changing already.
It’s a start, Ken. COVID handed us a way to start removing bricks.
Don’t bitch just because it doesn’t get rid of the entire wall all at once.
I made a similar point long ago. Unfortunately, we end up paying for all the out of work worthless scum along with the decent people that find their livelihood disrupted.
There is certainly some good coming out of it.
Given the state and structure of the system as it stands, that’s pretty much inevitable, Barry. The “out of work worthless scum” and the “decent people that find their livelihood disrupted” are inextricably intermixed because the various industries and infrastructures are all Leftist owned and controlled from Edu, Inc. to Media, Inc.
Collapsing the university/academic industry and the entertainment/media complex is not just going to put the loud mouthed Lefty actors and educators and SJW directors and administrators in a bind, it also will unemploy the few Right-wing people in other ends of the industries. It’s inevitable – a consequence of the fact that the Right allowed the capture of those industries and infrastructures for all of these decades.
I don’t see a way around it. Do you?
Doesn’t change the fact that it’s got to be done if there’s to be any chance of our side winning in the end.
No, no way around it. I think we’re just at the beginning of the beginning, long way to go. We’ll know a lot by the end of November I think. Maybe nothing. It seems different though.
Agreed. November will tell a tale.
Some shapes are starting to appear in the fog, though:
Hollywood’s identity crisis: Actors, writers and producers warn of ‘reverse racism’ in the film industry which has created a ‘toxic’ climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man
I just can’t see two industries – the film/TV industry and the theater industry – being sustained by the spending of 13% of the population.
Because if they do go that way, and it looks like they will in a frenzy of virtue signalling, it almost guarantees that fewer and fewer Whites, Latinos, and Asians will be willing to buy their product.
I could pull similar links for the coming collapse of the Education/Academic industries and others, as well, but I’m pretty sure that most people here have already seen them.
True, no money to be collected from the 13%, at least not much. It’s going to be interesting. It’s OK, I have popcorn…
It’s primary day in Alabama. Sessions (D, dumbass) Vs Tuberville (R, maybe)
polls closed at 8 eastern and currently Tuberville is up about 60 to 40 with something less than 10% of the vote. I’ll update this later.
I’ll go out on a limb and predict Tuberville wins easily. With near 20% of precincts reporting T is still up 60/40, but looking at county results T leads almost everywhere.
Perhaps Alabamians are sending Sessions home for good.
Nice catch. I wasn’t aware of this Primary.
Sessions should lose just because he recused himself without discussing it with anyone else.
My guess is because he is secretly Deep State, but it could be because he is Stupid. Either way, he failed us.
Took a short nap and while away they called it for Tuberville. It’s not just a win, it’s a bloodbath. Perhaps Sessions will finally get the message. 76% reporting and it is 250K to 153K – 62% to 38%.
I think Sessions is just a dim bulb. And this is a real ass whooping.
And I finish my taxes, last minute as always. Just have to send them by snail mail, with check (pain). Check in to see what the final results are and
A real ass whooping, Thanks Alabama! 60.74% of the vote to Tuberville with 100% counted.
Notice how Republicans can get all the votes counted by midnight or so and it takes DAYS for Dems to do the same thing much of the time?
well, it takes time to count the vote of the dead. First you have to determine how many dead votes you need…
I saw this posted by an acquaintence elsewhere and it is something I believe should be spread everywhere
