Okay, it is now two weeks in a row that the progressive socialist left has been in an apoplectic meltdown. Last week it was all about a federal judge in Florida saying what everyone knew to be true: the CDC doesn’t have authority to mandate anything to the American people. Yes, if you want to don a face covering, you have the liberty to do so. If you do not, you cannot be forced, or coerced, to do so. Hmm, I tend to believe that same principle applies to mandating a shot.
This week, the left is going nuts because one Elon Musk, a private entrepreneur, has purchased Twitter. Heavens to mergatroids, the world is coming to an end. Yes, the empty threats of getting off Twitter and moving to Canada pervade, neither of which will happen. Leftists did not care about Musk starting Tesla, and the government subsidies that come with buying electric vehicles. Leftists did not care when Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, where truth does tend to die in their darkness. Leftists had no problem with Michael Bloomberg — what political persuasion is he today? — bought an entire news media platform. Leftists have no issue with Mark Zuckerberg owning Facebook/Meta, whatever, and using his war chest to give Zuckerbucks to selected County elections offices, like Harris County in Texas. So what has the left in such a tizzy?
The socialist, Marxist, leftist control freaks cannot stand individual liberty, freedom. Damn you for not wearing a mask when we fear monger you into doing so! A curse upon you for believing you have freedom of speech! They believe that you have a freedom of accepted speech, and they, i.e. Twitter and other leftist controlled social media platforms adjudicate what is accepted.
And, this is why the left hates our US Constitution, because it elevates the individual over the institution of government. The real fascists in America? Just turn over to MSNBC, CNN, or any other leftist dominated media platform and you will see them.
What else has the left going nuts? The failure of CNN+.
Steadfast and Loyal,
