Every magician knows the trick: to distract the audience’s attention, they do something with one hand while the other performs the manipulations necessary for the trick to work. And thus it is with the current Democrat Establishment:
Rochelle Walensky, a Democratic Party activist who happens to direct the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, is promoting new COVID-19 measures at the instruction of her boss, Joe Biden. These measures would require masks even for vaccinated Americans entering public buildings and for students and teachers in public schools.
Although such impositions may displease readers of this journal, until now they have made sense politically. They are intended to distract us from the colossally stupid things the Democratic administration has unleashed on us. Focusing public attention on a health crisis caused by the Delta variant provides a diversion from everything that should be laid at Biden’s doorstep, such as the explosion of violent crimes in American cities, rising inflation, uncontrolled borders, and the takeover of the military and education by the intersectional Left. If the Democrats can get Americans to concentrate on their “crises,” such as the putative danger of a right-wing insurrection and a raging COVID pestilence, then voters might be distracted from other things.
Okay, we all know that there’s no danger, putative or otherwise, of a “right-wing insurrection” other than in the sick projections of the people talking about it, e.g. President Braindead and his equally-braindead minions in the Justice Department and its
testicle tentacle offices such as the FBI and parts of the DHS. (A couple hundred people acting like idiots in the hallowed halls [sic] of Congress do not an insurrection make, as much as the Communists are claiming it as such.)
But as the article rightly puts it, we need to avoid the waving (albeit irritating) hand and concentrate on the really important stuff: the horrifying mega-budget being pushed on us by the Leftists (and even some asshole Republicans too, for shame); the flooding of our border defenses by illegal migrants and criminals; the foul Critical Race Theory which is poisoning our kids and undermining our military, to say nothing of other less-important institutions such as our sports organizations, corporations and other parts of our everyday lives. And most importantly, our First- and Second Amendment freedoms are being circumscribed and undermined on a daily basis by this same disgusting ruling establishment,
All the above being aided and abetted by the media, academia and politicians, of course.
Sadly, it’s a war of many fronts, but it is nevertheless a war that has to be fought every single day — because the Left is assaulting us with blatant lies and subterfuges every day and at every turn.
I’m not saying we should ignore annoyances such as mask mandates, of course. But in ignoring, mocking or opposing them, we should not lose sight of the important issues which should take most of our effort and support.
