Not terribly pertinent–but who can’t use a laugh, these days?
People are dumb or trusting enough to elect you to their city council, and you think they’ve volunteered to play house with you as the all-wise, all-powerful father and them as the not-always-so-nice little kiddies who need a firm hand at all times.
The city council of San Antonio, Texas, unanimously (a vote of 11-0) passed a resolution condemning “COVID-19 hate speech” (https://news4sanantonio.com/news/local/san-antonio-mayor-proposes-resolution-denouncing-covid-19-hate-speech), because–it seems–if people know it came from Red China, they’ll go out and commit hate crimes.
Does that mean I have to stop calling it the Chinese Communist Wuhan People’s Liberation Death Virus From China?
Also verboten in San Antonio is any “spread of misinformation regarding COVID-19.” Hmm… Dr. Fauci used to say you couldn’t catch it from other people. He was wrong. But how do you tell the difference between “spreading misinformation” and simply being wrong?
Well, it’s only a resolution so far, not a law, so probably Herod’s men can’t drag you out of your car and toss you into jail. Yet. Maybe it depends on how angry Big Daddy gets. “You kids really bug me sometimes!”
Dude! When do we get our rights back? When do we get to be adults again? When do you mayors and councils and governors stop being our parents?
Cheesed-off minds want to know.
