    Yes. Power, in lieu of authority.

    Hope he makes a national mask mandate a cornerstone of his campaign. He'll lose then, and that will seal it.

    Look at this goddamn thing, and try to find a single true fact.



    This is the way it's done, people. If enough shit like this is written, one day you wake up and it's August 2020.
    "Western governments use propaganda to perpetuate a narrative that men must work out and maintain a level of physical fitness if they want to be respected in society."

    Fuck, I wish the government wanted me lifting weights. The gyms would all be open.

    "You need to take accountability for your fellow manís actions and make a conscientious effort to put an end to this form of sexism. Donít remain a sheep for the rest of your life."

    This two-sentencer has a bit to unpack in it. The first part is the crux of the entire leftist push, "you must take accountability for your fellow man's actions". What other people who resemble you in some way do is also your fault. The second part is just hilarious irony. Someone basically telling you you need to be docile in a biochemically-induced way imploring you not to be a "sheep". I really hate that it's at this point, and I hope someone finds a better way, but it feels like there is no resolution to this cultural conflict that doesn't involve either violent resistance or submission.

    That sentence is why this piece has been called trolling. But given the way the left "thinks," I just don't know.

    Precisely! That's what ALL of this has been about. Virtually every piece of bad news on this thread has been about authority and the exercise of power in its absence.

    Briggs has been a reliable source of common sense throughout this hoax. Be sure and watch the video at the bottom.
    Regarding that video, you should see what has happened in my country. I suppose we all need to just put on our "muzzles" and shut up.

    It doesn't matter what I think about that, as it happens I'm sure there are people who would believe this at face value, but we're talking about this being intentional parody and you having treated it seriously.


    As almost 6000 posts on this thread have discussed, the RESPONSE to COVID-19 is the crisis. The disease itself is over:

    COVID-19 Provisional Counts - Weekly Updates by Select Demographic and Geographic Characteristics

    More people have died of the FLU than coronavirus for seven weeks in a row

    But you are encouraged to continue pretending, so that your government likes you.
    Thank you sir, your encouragement is always welcome. It's especially encouraging to see you now admitting by saying it's over, that it existed and was a crisis at some point. That's progress! Step by step, we'll get you there.

    It's great to see that the principle of progressive overload works for making people mentally, as well as physically stronger.

    Also, I'm a post nationalist heathen European, 'my' government is the government of whichever country in which I happen to reside at present, citizen of the world and all that. Vive la revolucion!

    In any event, I was not suggesting a high speed ride over a bumpy railroad crossing for Floyd. Not after Baltimore's (Charm City) debacle.

    Interestingly, or perhaps not, both cities were/are run by dems and had been for decades. In Baltimore, the guy was caught up in a drug enforcement sweep in the black community that the black DA and the black mayor pressed the police for hard. Then walked away, pretending their pressure for ANY kind of arrests were not actually what they wanted.

    It was covered already, but since this got unearthed again, it bears repeating that the knee to the neck was within the scope of training of the Minneapolis PD. Yet the chief washed his hands pretending that what happened was no such thing.

    This is what happens when you have unchecked dem socialism for too long.
    You're filibustering, Hurling.

    How and why Floyd died is totally irrelevant. Tony Timpa, a white guy who was far less of a deadbeat than Floyd I might add, was killed by police officers in exactly the same manner, but without drugs to hasten his death.

    Tony Timpa - Bing video

    This happened almost FOUR YEARS before George Floyd's death.

    So why was Floyd's death grasped by the newsmedia? Why did the newsmedia choose to make a martyr of that particular individual? Firstly, because he was black, and the officer in question was white. Secondly, the timing, in the middle of fake pandemic when everyone's nerves were frayed to breaking point. Just like Soros - one of the original donors for BLM - said recently, "I would describe it as a revolutionary moment when the range of possibilities is much greater than in normal times. What is inconceivable in normal times becomes not only possible but actually happens. People are disoriented and scared. They do things that are bad for them and for the world." []MarketWatch Site Logo. The mass media consciously opted to inflame a racial conflict, with whites as the demonized and blacks as the 'voiceless, oppressed minority'.

    The whole thing is nothing to do with 'unchecked dem socialism' [sic] - that tornado was whipped up by the mass media.

    re: Briggs link.

    "A state agency in Wisconsin has mandated people wear masks for zoom meetings, even if they are home alone."

    Anyone who has been pro lockdown needs to be told they own this. They don't get to say "well, it goes too far, that is ridiculous." Nope, this is what you have propagated. You don't get to position yourself as a "voice of reason" like many in the fear-factory have attempted to be.

    Btw, we are nearing August 15. Shouldnít the entire mass of the known universe have been infected by now, as Rip predicted? But the line now is not nearly enough people got the bug...
