Which of these Progressive Women deserves a statue? [KT]

solanas.png

Has a little Che thing goin' on, don't you think?

With all these statues coming down around the country, how about we consider some replacements, suitable for covering with graffiti? In keeping with today's intersectional norms, they should be women.

Candidate #1

First up, a blast from the past, Valerie Solanas, described by Daniel Greenfield after a puff piece in the NYT. Greenfield's piece is filled with interesting historical tidbits and cutting observations, so you might want to read the whole thing. This is the NYT:

Overlooked No More: Valerie Solanas, Radical Feminist Who Shot Andy Warhol - She made daring arguments in "SCUM Manifesto," her case for a world without men. But her legacy as a writer and thinker was overshadowed by one violent act.

Her "one violent act" was shooting Andy Warhol and another man. Warhol was briefly declared dead. She had given him a manuscript it review, thought he had stolen it. "Valerie tried to get Warhol to help promote SCUM, even asking him in a letter in mid-1967 if he'd like to join the 'Men's Auxiliary," the group of sympathetic men who were, according to the manifesto, "working diligently to eliminate themselves.' "

Coming soon to the NYT?

Charles Manson is best known for his cult of followers and masterminding the Sharon Tate murders. But to focus on the stabbings is to ignore his contributions to folk music, including his seminal writings.

This is Greenfield:

Bonnie Wertheim never actually makes the case for Solanas' legacy as a writer or a thinker. The Scum Manifesto reads like the ravings of an overeducated crazy person which is exactly what it is, and climaxes with a call for gender terrorism.

Here are some deep thoughts from the overlooked feminist thinker.

Prior to the institution of automation, to the replacement of males by machines, the male should be of use to the female, wait on her, cater to her slightest whim, obey her every command, be totally subservient to her, exist in perfect obedience to her will, as opposed to the completely warped, degenerate situation we have now of men, not only not only not existing at all, cluttering up the world with their ignominious presence, but being pandered to and groveled before by the mass of females, millions of women piously worshiping the Golden Calf, the dog leading the master on a leash, when in fact the male, short of being a drag queen, is least miserable when his dogginess is recognized -- no unrealistic emotional demands are made of him and the completely together female is calling the shots. Rational men want to be squashed, stepped on, crushed and crunched, treated as the curs, the filth that they are, have their repulsiveness confirmed.

Uh-oh. That drag queen line suggests Solanas may need to be purged as a TERF.

Will transgenders be able to forgive? Would she have evolved if she had had a chance?

Candidate #2

Via J.J. Sefton's excellent Morning Report yesterday, Bruce Bawer reminds us that If You're White, You're Racist. Period. According to Robin DiAngelo, "who proves that whites can be race hustlers, too." She is our second candidate.

At a time when violent radicals are attacking America and its institutions as fundamentally and irredeemably racist, Robin DiAngelo may well be the woman of the hour. A 63-year-old professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, she's a big name in multicultural education and in the burgeoning field of Whiteness Studies, which, unlike other identity-group "studies," exists not to exalt the group in question but to demonize it. In the words of National Post columnist Barbara Kay, Whiteness Studies teaches that to be white is to be "branded, literally in the flesh, with evidence of a kind of original sin. You can try to mitigate your evilness, but you can't eradicate it. The goal...is to entrench permanent race consciousness in everyone - eternal victimhood for non-whites, eternal guilt for whites."

Seattle. Who would have guessed?

Tucker Carlson did a book review on 'White Fragility'. You could pass it along. Might prompt thoughts like this:

Wait a minute... The author states that white fragility is not wanting to live in a dangerous zone. What is more fragile than a white liberal wanting to live in a "safe space" where their ideas aren't challenged!

Michael Tracey:

OK, I finished the "White Fragility" book. It's just so pernicious. Individuality and critical reasoning are condemned as expressions of "white fragility." Robin DiAngelo wants to turn the whole country into one of her compulsory corporate seminars. And disturbingly, it's working.

Robin DiAngelo also appears in the last three minutes of the three-part video on the riots at Evergreen in 2017. Have a lefty friend? Here's some condemnation from the left: This is the breakdown of the basic logic of civilization and it's spreading.

Candidate(s) #3 - Do you remember this?

1. Black professor writes a paper demonstrating that peaceful protests move public opinion toward protesters but violent protests move public opinion away from protesters.

2. White election data analyst tweets about the paper and GETS FIRED. The tweet violated a taboo in some left-wing quarters against criticizing violent protest.

Ace took it from there, with the reactions of a progressive listserv which included a number of furious Woke Women. This led to a nice riff on Les Enragees of the New French Revolution.

Side note: Remember when they kept talking about the guillotine at CHAZ/CHOP?

The Spanish Inquisition executed 3,000ish people over 300ish years.

"The French Revolution executed around 17,000 people during the Terror alone. This doesn't even count things like the genocide in the Vendee.

People claim the former was brutality & the latter as enlightenment.

Review the candidates.

Certainly at least one of these women deserves a statue. Or maybe they could be honored as a group. What do you think?

Place your votes in the comments.

17 I was going to say DON'T THEY TEACH THE FRENCH REVOLUTION ANYMORE IN SCHOOL but then I realized that I, in fact, did NOT learn about the French Revolution in school. (I'm 37.) And I have an IB diploma. I read up on it on my own time. Would be willing to bet my cousin who has a degree in history is wholly ignorant on the topic.

(Said cousin called up her parents a couple weeks ago and lambasted them for their white privilege for two hours. Why they didn't hang up I don't know. She's now been laid off. I told my mom (this cousin is my mom's sister's daughter) that she should be glad to give up her job to "BIPOC" because it's white privilege for her to have a job.)

30 Solanas was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and pleaded guilty to "reckless assault with intent to harm," serving a three-year prison sentence, including treatment in a psychiatric hospital. After her release, she continued to promote the SCUM Manifesto. She died in 1988 of pneumonia in San Francisco.

43 Yuri Kochiyama will get statues soon if the D's triumph.

She was interned during the Second World War, and retaliated by becoming a Maoist, radical (she cradled Malcom X's head in her arms when he was murdered), converted to Islam, and supported the Peruvian Shining Path and the Japanese Red Army.

She denounced the United States after 9/11 of course, stating: "I consider Osama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro ... I thank Islam for bin Laden. America's greed, aggressiveness, and self-righteous arrogance must be stopped. War and weaponry must be abolished."

Needless to say, the Obama White House honored her on the White House website in 2014, and Google honored her with a "Doodle" in 2016, on her 95th birthday.

I'm not buying it.

100% ICU capacity... what does that mean? Are ALL those people there for China virus?

People get put in and taken out if ICU all the time. It doesn't mean they're gravely ill. Often it just means the hospital wants to isolate people. So.....

Yeah, I bet when EVERYONE IS GETTING TESTED, there's going to be a surprisingly high number of people who are positive for this virus. Including MANY who never were infected with this virus, but the tests are specific enough to determine that.

75 I said yesterday that based on my own interactions with closeted angry people that I'm now confident Trump will win.

I've realized a new metric: How opposed are the GOPe and Never Trumpers to Trumps present course?

The answer: very.

This is a hugely positive sign.

Everytime I see one of them say Trump needs to do this or that to win, I'll become more sure Trump is on the right path.

Their particular recommendations are of interest too as being indicative of the absolutely wrong path.

Disclosure: I'm more a Tucker guy than a Trump guy on ideology. But I love Trump's spirit and know Tucker is a drama queen and is selling fear porn (i hate that about him) and heavily adjust for that.

All of them are being tested.

Since none of them were coming into the buildings before now, if they test positive, it's "new."

No, of course not. They are their for a myriad of reasons but the China virus is part of it. The point is the selective outrage of the morons on the left claiming that protests are immune from the virus but going to work, going for beer at your favorite bar or, horror of horrors, going to a Trump rally will end the world as we know it.

Hypocrisy is one of the deadliest sins of any movement. It might not affect the diehards but the rest of us can see what's going on, even the the apolitical types.

Manufactured outrages always have a relatively short shelf life because there is no core. I agree, this isn't a second wave, it's the virus making it's spread and more testing amplifying the results. But what the media isn't saying is that the death rate is plummeting with every new test. It's now about .26 and they are running out of nursing homes to infect.

Just about everyone comes to the same conclusion, that red wins either way.

But the variable that is new, I think, affects the Nash Equilibrium. There is a very heavy skew now to the justice system. Two rules of law. One for them and one for us.

That means that you're now looking at a greater than zero percent chance that if you defend yourself from violent protestors, you'll be the one prosecuted.

I think that changes the game significantly.

It's going to be impossible to measure the scope of what's going on here.

For every patient who is now seeing a doctor, after months of not being able to get routine care, there are going to be explosions in the rates of newly detected SERIOUS health conditions that are going to require urgent medical care.

And many of those people are going to die, when earlier detection might have saved lives, or at the very least require substantial outlay of healthcare dollars to rectify a problem that didn't need to be this serious.

Quality of life effects are immeasurable.

And in the mean time, a percentage of these people will test positive for China wuwu.

I grew up in Paterson, NJ and just a few days ago, two city council members were arrested and charged with mail fraud in connection to tampering with mail-in ballots for the recent city council election. And this is ONE city in ONE state for ONE Mickey Mouse election.

Can you imagine the utter CHAOS that would happen if the Democrats get their wish and we have this for the Presidential Election?

And then....it dawned on me. The CHAOS is the POINT.

They want to cheat to win if they can , but if it ain't enough, they want to sully and soil Trump's re-election victory by possibly tyin it up in courts

The fear mongers and media are playing a game with levels of abstraction and goalposts. They're jumping between them to find the level with the "worst" numbers (individual states now) and talking up positive cases and % positive.

It's all a work.

Nationally and County and City level the virus is done.

There are a few border states getting positives from Mexico and the testing is more focused and the negative tests aren't being logged.

The State level is their last stand. It'll be done in a week.
Posted by: Thesokorus at June 27, 2020 11:57 AM (5NvG9)


The moving goalposts are a vital part of controlling the narrative.

Like this Texas hospital.

What are the other hospitals in the area seeing? In terms of ICU bed space, etc.

You know what happens in lots of places? Patients get shuffled around, based on community needs, so it's entirely possible THIS hospital is the designated place to send patients who need ICU beds. Covid positive or not.

So if they're full (or nearly full), what about Hospital B down the street? Are they full? If you have a large enough community, it is absolutely useless to talk about capacity in one facility.

And as you suggest, if we're piling up state numbers, who is tracking how full hospitals in Phoenix are, compared to Tuscon or Flagstaff or Prescott or hell, even for that matter, Scottsdale and Mesa?

If all the Navajo cases are being sent to Phoenix, you bet your ass there's going to be an increase, because there AREN'T any hospitals on the reservations!

169 True The Vote woman (Catherine Engelbreacht) gets my vote for a real statue... because of her noble efforts, the Obama goons sent five federal agencies to harass her, not just the IRS. She endured and testified to congress, and I believe still leads that organization.


But that is how it goes ... 17,000 in the French Revolution Terror is less than the millions murdered by communist regimes, but they pick out the leaders ... if you keep your head down, you don't face the Fed Mafiosi and their "made men" ("the right men", to get Flynn, as Obama put it). Lerner was performing hits in the 90s with the FEC, helping to elect Durbin the Turbin, before she did her broadside attacks on conservatives from her IRS position.

And Lerner walked off with her fat pension, and now Wray brags that (a few of) the bad actors got fired ... no doubt with their pension, and a million bucks from Qatar or some Muslim Brotherhood front, for a book to be written later. Bolton was seen in Qatar iirc, and didn't he get $2M up front to trash Trump in his book?

Hell is Empty, All the Devils are Here (in the DC bureaucracy, plus Dem governors and mayors) We hope that perhaps a second term for Trump might maybe see some real indictments. Or maybe Fauci will allow grand juries to perform the essential work of government again? He'll have to check in with the foundations to see if he has their approval.

The problem with BLM and Antifa is really their look. If you're going to construct a mass political movement centered around collective racial guilt, you shouldn't look like a disorganized rabble, but a well-oiled machine.

Our iconic line is tightly coordinated, with a stylish midcentury sensibility. This is a collection for all seasons, but let's face it - calf-height boots are SO hot this year.

And whether you're attending an ecstatic rally or a disruptive street action, it projects a no-nonsense aesthetic that says "I'm a rigid, bigoted ideologue, and my warped racial theories simply will not be denied."

I recalled seeing a significant downturn in quality sometime in that date range, between Cartoon Wars and Season 14 and beyond.

I think it really hit them hard, the censorship. It was all so meta, doing episodes about how network executives were acting like ninnies because of threats of violence by angry muzzies.

And by the time they got to eps 200/201, the network not only refused to show the Mohammed images, they bleeped out the final speech about tolerance and whatever else (I don't know what got said, because as far as I know the speech never got heard).

Immediately after 201, the rest of that season is trash. I suspect the guys either went on a mini strike or just phoned it in.

I'm trying to watch Season 16 now, and the quality is just... meh. I've not seen any episodes beyond that.

This is a very nice gal who shows solicitous concern for my elderly mother, so I'm not going to come down too hard on her, but this is tooth-grindingly frustrating.

Oh, she's a retired teacher.

194 Today I read Schweikert argue that DC exists because Jefferson and his opponents (Hamilton) cut a deal:

Rev War debt retired in exchange for DC carved out of VA.

Hamilton wanted debt retired and Jeff et all figured having DC in VA meant VA would de facto control US Gov via local influence.

Any sense to that? Never heard that before.

213 EthicalSkeptic has a very interesting estimate of excess deaths attributable to the (pointless) virus lockdowns, especially deferral of medical screenings and treatments, plus stress-related cases. It's about 50% of the COVID-only deaths, to date. I haven't delved into his methodology but I think he was using standard formulas that would withstand scrutiny (and of course are used without question for other situations).

So it ends up 50% COVID/25% lockdown effects/25% "with" COVID on the death totals.

When combined with the likelihood that near zero net benefit will be demonstrable from all of the "mitigation" (lockdowns) ..... as many real analysts have been saying for weeks, the greatest public health disaster of all time.

There's a lot of truth in that, and I've said the same thing about California, and about America. Both got the best and the worst: the best came because they figured leaving an established order gave them a reshuffle of the cards where they could rise on their merits.

The worst came because they were ne'er-do-wells worn out their welcome where they were, and wanted to screw up somewhere else.

And also, we really have learned a lot about viruses. Or rather, we've managed to disseminate the accurate findings and approaches from the past to almost the entire medical community.

344 Study. Masks work.


************

Boy, that is some weak shit you're bringing.

A surgical face mask, fresh from the box properly applied, in this single demonstration appears to limit direct line transmission of oropharyngeal macro-droplets onto an agar culture dish as measured by detection of bacterial colonies on the agar.

This study demonstration says nothing about the efficacy of bandannas, homemade fabric masks, or medical facemasks that have been worn all day, touched repeatedly, breathed in, saturated with exhaled water vapor, allowed to hang below the nose, worn into the bathroom while flushing, et cetera...

And it says nothing about efficacy at stopping particles the size of a virus.

The mask becomes the fomite.

Surgical masks were designed for just that purpose, keeping medical personnel from expelling macro droplets into open surgical or traumatic wounds during procedures, to avoid a wound infection.

But hey, I'm sure you luvs you some #SCIENCE!!!

Is "Masks Work" something like "Black Lives Matter"? A statement of affiliation to an intellectual paradigm and status as "non-shitty person"?

But assume you're right (you aren't) but assume it. Why would you want to do either? It's low IFR and low severity outside the extremely aged and their easier to protect directly.

And what's the cost benefit of delaying HIT vs some theoretical reduced symptomology via reduced viral load? It's low severity absent masks.

373 Story about White Fragility:

I have a friend who teaches Adult Education. She is not a full-blown lefty, but is in that environment. She posted on Facebook a little video of her friend, a black educator (probably in anti-racism or something) being interviewed by another black woman.

They laughed over white women crying on their shoulders over discoveries that they were racists. Followed pretty closely the themes from "White Fragility". which advises white women not to cry because it upsets people of color. Creepy.

They also believed that MLK's "Letter from Birmingham Jail" is not taught in schools anymore because it shows he challenged moderate whites. But a guy was under investigation at the time for reading it to his class because it has a "bad word". There's also the Christian angle.

And according to them, schools don't teach about Malcolm X because "he fought". He wasn't non-violent like MLK. It has nothing to do with how they would approach his early collaboration with the KKK or the Nazi Party, or fights between Nation of Islam and mainstream Islam, or his assassination. Of course.

so they do work ... especially for the non-symptomatic carrier of the virus. They would limit how much inoculum that person spread (from his mouth, not from what he touches), and everyone would have to wear masks since most don't know they are infected unless they are symptomatic.


BUT, we don't know how prevalent (oropharyngeal) asymptomatic spread really is. We don't know what downsides (social, physical, economic) there are from making 1000 people wear the mask to cover the 0.1% (?) infected.


And we don't really know if even the asymptomatic one would actually spread the disease without a mask, in normal situations. They seem to need longer exposure to an individual, like living/working in a nursing home, as opposed to walking past someone in a store. The infected person can also spread via touching a lot of things ... leaving a trail of multiple fomites (even if he properly destroys his own mask).


Only Karen knows that you hateful non-mask wearing Trump supporters are the reason for increased positives, even if hospitalizations continue to decline.

And as Thesokorus keeps pointing out, it's all immaterial anyway.

The age- and health condition- stratified mortality for this virus is already known to be much less than flu for most of the population, and when health condition analysis is finally done on the total data set, it will end up being much more concentrated in the medically infirm than even influenza.

416 hmm, you're clueless.

You are apparently too dumb to read actual medical research studies. Masking has no significant effect on ILI spread. Viruses are not bacteria.

And you can't understand IFR and CFR concepts, apparently, and tossing in the imaginary lasting damage nonsense, as if this virus is any different than other respiratory viruses with similar effects on a tiny % of infected, doesn't make up for it.

And C19 will be a non-issue in itself in the fall. Because everyone has followed the same disastrous, unscientific course, from the WH on down, after late April.

460 "illiniwek, no, they don't "work" for viruses." rhomboid

"Masking has no significant effect" also rhomboid

as the rest of my post showed, they work within the confines of what I quoted from Muldoon, which (probably) has no significant effect in the larger context of how they are being used (or misused).


IF I spent ten minutes with an infected person talking 3 feet from my face, I'd be exposed to less inoculum if they wore a mask. But that does not seem to be a main path of transmission in general, or at least not in public.


Still, even the CDC studies and others state there is some usefulness in a properly fitted N-95 mask, or others, if used correctly. "respirators, such as N95 and P2 masks, work best when they are
fit-tested, and these masks will be in limited supply during the next
pandemic." It is just silly to claim they are of no use at all. That is not what "your studies" have shown.

466 Easy to get lost in the various players and terms here, but how/where is GOPe demanding action of any kind?

In context, GOPe's big "initiative" - "police reform" - is nothing but pathetic pandering. Trump had an even limper form of pander with his "police reform" EO. Of course also had his monument EO yesterday (essentially nothing - which also kind of makes it a pander, just to a different side).

The whole federal/local thing is legit, and it bedevils almost every aspect of this. So words may be much of the "action" that's feasible, in many cases.

All the discussions here get wrapped around that axle.

But what most sense, even Trump, based on his interview comments, is that there has been, overall, and at many levels, an ominously quiet or limp reaction to what is probably an unprecedented civic culture debacle in our history.

470 illiniwek, I obviously don't cut/paste big segments of studies.

For viruses, apart from fitted respirators, the studies show no benefit for masks.

It's silly to pretend that respirators are what we're talking about, what are being mandated, or what are being used. They're not.

It's also silly to even worry about it if you're not in a vulnerable category. Unless you also wear (useless) masks every October-April.

This is what I have cobbled together:

2) Language is free fire- as long as you do not go hog wild.

3) No name calling, unless it is ace or at least partially a joke. Or a troll.

4) Do not let your personal bit become the only thing you talk about and the prism by which you post about everything- unless it is boobs or the women to which they are attached.

Personally, I would still like to see more allowance for people who do not toe the group line in discussions. It is good for us to have to defend out views. The problem I see is that almost always said discussion goes over the line and violates one of the other rules.

479 Aetius I don't think it inevitable or even in many cases likely that action will be politically damaging for Trump or anyone else. That's been the (baseless, kind of dumb) conventional wisdom here for a while, and I don't discuss it, because this place has evolved to where many dubious or worse nostrums are just sacrosanct.

Which doesn't answer the questions of what to do, where, when.

If a state calls for federal assistance, and that assistance results in bloodshed, as long as it's not wanton or unprovoked, how in the hell do people here think it hurts Trump? The nation already is afflicted with an insane, hateful and vicious propaganda sector less organized but just as malevolent as what passed for press in the USSR. Trump will be lied about and vilified 24/7 no matter what.

But barring some situation where many people's lives were in danger from the idiotic and vile approach of governors and mayors - literally a rescue operation - I don't see a lot of good practical intervention options. Not because of "politics".

I agree, the Sweden way was better (or was it the Swiss?) ... protect the elderly, let the thing run its course, don't destroy the economy. There is some doubt as to how much difference it made ... the curve seems to play out regardless of shutdown or mask or Sweden way. (even if masks "work", there are too many alternate paths)


For the first two weeks there was some question about it being a bio-weapon ... at this point I think it was a con job by Fauci, his chance to fame, and to drive sales for his cure. But maybe worse, it was to stop Trump. Healthy people should be fine ... but we do have a lot of unhealthy people ... besides the elderly. More bad advice on that food pyramid thing.

Not a 46d chess theory fan. At all

Trump's more like a solo practitioner plaintiff's attorney just trying to survive the Big Law pretrial BS. All he wants is to get to the jury where he has an advantage and MAKE THE SALE.

And I do think the frustration with Trump is turning to serious and long lasting anger at the bad actors.

No way to think Trump caused this mess even the bad actors don't blame him.

487 And the reaction to Trump's re-election isn't all that important, it can't be much worse than the completely unopposed Gleichschaltung now ravaging the culture and country. It will continue until vulnerable targets are exhausted - it's already reached beyond-parody absurdity, like voice-over actors having to be the right "race" - and Trump's re-election won't restore a bit of the damage.

In the yard if I hang a bedsheet then, at six feet spay it from a water hose, how wet does it get?

Do the same thing except put a window screen in front of the sheet. Spray it. Does the sheet get as wet at it did with out the screen?

490 The original Tea Party was America First. Remember (?)the year long Glenn Beck educational courses on Fox News about the Marxist and Maoists ties infiltration into every institution including the GOP. Then Glenn Beck correctly pointed out Obama and these groups hate white people. He was immediately cancelled.

That top rated cable show led to the Tea Party. Then it was infiltrated and co-opted by mainstream conservatives and establishment GOPe. Then it died. Same pattern with Trump's MAGA.

I don't agree. I think you are missing the fact that one of the things that led to Trump's popularity was that it was a response to organizations-distrust and hatred of the leaders of same. I am not sure you can characterize MAGA as an organization other than to use the term to refer to the general phenomenon.

The Tea Party was able to be be coopted BECAUSE it immediately started to organize (or others started organizing it for us.)

MAGA is a different animal, IMO, simply because it has at it's heart a dislike of institutionalized anything.

501 the point is not the sie of the virus or bacteria, it is the sie of the inoculum/droplets that CARRY the virus/bacteria. afaik, that is how a virus spreads ... body fluids that are full of tiny virus.


That movie Contagion showed that ... bat droppings, pigs catch it, pigs get cut up, butcher wipes his hands (that still have some inoculum) and touches the American ... the virus is carried by the fluids. Maybe an "airborne virus" does not need such a carrier, idk. I think even then it might be bound with other particles. But when it is being projected from someones mouth, it comes on the small droplets, and it stops with the small droplets, in the mask.

this is not rocket science.

502 I remade the webbing on my gas mask and carry it in the truck. Only wore it once and took it along while grocery shopping last week as I wore my face sheild for a change instead of my casister mask I would have worn. Was waiting for someone to say something about only a face shield then would have put on the gas mask so fking quick it would have shocked them.
So plan on doing it again tomorrow.

503 Robbie, Beck was cancelled after a year (maybe more) of informing the public of all the Marxist/Maoist ties in every institution including but not limited to corporations and NGO's. He had the top rated cable show for all time slots for a year at 5pm. He was cancelled when he said Obama and these groups hate White people and want to destroy them. All his advertisements vanished. He was cancelled.
Then he went crazy. He OD'd on too many red pills. Many such cases.

510 If a state calls for federal assistance, and that assistance results in bloodshed, as long as it's not wanton or unprovoked, how in the hell do people here think it hurts Trump?

Two words: Oliver. Stone.

There are probably movie scripts sitting in some swine's office in Hollywood right now (working title "Donald") about how this fascist dictator crushed a beautiful, peaceful popular movement.

The facts and the truth do not matter. I think Trump is wise to let the situation fester until everybody has had enough, even the Democrat party and its adherents.

Recall how Democrats were urging removing Saddam Hussein from power, until W took steps to do that, at which time they instantly reversed polarity and branded him a warmonger and spending blood for oil. Trump needs to let this situation gets so bad that anyone who later tries to reverse polarity on his actions gets pelted with rotten vegetables.

In Lenin's famous dictum, the worse, the better. Don't rescue Democrat politicians from the train wreck they've caused. Not yet. Let them totally discredit themselves first.

You should care because people like me are a lock for Trump if he would just keep his promises, take action, and stop ignoring or throwing his base to the wolves. There is still time.
I'll repeat again praying establishment conservatives hear this, it is a losing strategy to consistently attack allies to the Right in an attempt gain favor with progressives and Marxists on the Left though either signaling by attacking the America First Nationalist Right, adopting progressive policies, and courting people who have been brainwashed for 2 generations to hate you and want you dead. This is stupid, and a failed strategy. It's been proven for decades through elections, the failure to conserve anything, and demographic change.
Why repeat failed tactics and a losing strategy over and over?

It's not at all. Which is why I am so surprised by the conflict.

We don't have to answer the mask question because of the logically prior question: do we need to mitigate the spread amongst the vast majority?

The answer is no. Clearly. This is not a severe or fatal illness.

In fact, we should encourage the young and healthy to contract it. Especially children.

HIT is about 20% absent subways.

Masks are as rhomboid said immaterial.
