Ignore The Deflection and Remember The Facts

Lots to get through today, and it’s only Monday … but don’t get caught up in the news that he retweeted a story about Mark and Patricia McCloskey, AKA Karen and Ken, AKA Blobby* and Clod, a wealthy white couple in St. Louis’s Central West End gated community who came out of their home armed with weapons because a group Black Lives Matter protesters were marching toward Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house on Sunday night.

Krewson, in a Facebook Live news conference, read the names and street addresses of protesters who are calling on the city to defund the police department.

They’re all vile human beings, but the real issue is at the top of the dung heap.

And … don’t get caught up in the news that he retweeted—and then deleted—a two-minute video that featured one of his Florida MAGAts yelling “White power! White power!” at The Villages retirement community outside of Orlando.

We know he’s a racist. His own mouthpiece Sarah-leigh Spicer Huckleberry McEnany claims he didn’t hear the shouted racist words but that he stands with “the people of The Villages” and “stands with his supporters who are oftentimes demonized.”

Stands with racists. Remember that.

Do take a moment to remember that that today the Supreme Court dealt another blow to _____ when it ruled 5-4 against a Louisiana abortion law, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with liberals. Roberts may suffer the wrath of _____ but he’s following the law of this country which says abortion is legal.

Remember that victory and vote Blue in November so, among many other things, a woman’s right to choose what she does with her own body, isn’t once again put into the hands of old white men.

And, above all, remember that, while _____ bungled the COVID-19 response and 125,000 Americans have died, that he also was briefed on the fact that Russia was paying members of the Taliban to murder our soldiers in Afghanistan and he did nothing about it.
He’s a racist and a murderer.

The Karen and Ken in St. Louis were ridic. White Fragility (TM) at its best. And Lyda Krewson needs to be voted out, definitely.Doxxing the people she was sworn to protect? Let's see what people in St. Louis do...
COVFEFE 19 keeps dog whistling cause racists gotta dog whistle. I've said it before, all racists are Cheeto fans..
And I hope this blow is the end of any doubt that Kavanaugh was bought to serve IMPOTUS. Roberts joined the liberals, but that was a technicality. Reproductive rights are still in danger. We won't have the Notorious RBG for ever... Roe V. Wade needs to be codified.

All that and John Roberts siding with Liberals: The world (USA) has gone completely mad.

It's been a rich, rich news day today alright.

Perhaps Ken and Karen was worried that the BLM marchers would stage a re-storming of the Bastille with their house standing in as the Bastille? Although from what I've seen of the inside more like a downmarket - VERY downmarket - version of Versailles.

I must say that I will regain faith in my country if the GOP looses badly in November. If not, and they do win, I will be more than depressed. You are blue!
