This, folks. And the source material from Hot Air. (If you can't find Hot Air without a link, you fail the Internetz.)
Some recent examples:
Dumbasses, at county and state levels, attempted use the current emergency to shut down gun stores.
The correct response to that is a sentence that ends "...sideways, with a rusty chainsaw; and the horse you rode into town on."
And POTUS (an absolute commie anti-gunner to the people who wear their AR-15s and a bandoleer of ammo to go to the bathroom inside their own houses - NTTAWWT), and the DHS, helpfully sent exactly that message, by declaring any and all 2A related business "essential", even - if not "especially" - amidst a pandemic.
Game, set, match, Jackie Jackboots. F**k off with that noise.
Some idiots tried to restrict abortions as non-essential procedures during this.
They're jack-booted thugs, full of the exact same amount of sh*t as Nancy Alzheimers and Chuck U Schumer.
Some other monumental jackholes have held mass church services during lockdowns.
I'm pro-free exercise of religion, and anti-abortion, but both of those moves are fucktarded beyond belief.
The state - any state, under any form of government - has a compelling interest in preserving the health and well-being of its citizenry. In fact, protecting their lives, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is the exact sine qua non without which they descend into replaceable tyranny, deserving of a rope or a guillotine, in short order, by that citizenry.
This is why "religions" claiming adherence to their holy tenets of temple prostitution or child sacrifice get short shrift in cases before SCOTUS, or any lesser court.
What should have happened is, whatever dimbulb fuckwit running that church should have shown the sense God gave a jackass, and not held that meeting. Nota bene I did not say "not hold any meetings, ever". Nor is decertifying them as a church in perpetuity allowable. That's jackbooted thuggery of the same stripe.
But what the state should do when Pastor Shitforbrains (and he is, and has them) held that meeting during a quarantine, is simply fined him, personally, and all present, at the rate of $1000 per attendee per occurence, and the church for $100,000 per occurrence. (E.g.: If 500 people show up, the pastor owes $500K, the 500 owe $1K@, and the church owes another $100K. Lather, rinse, repeat.) If God loves such stupidity, maybe the heavens will rain money on them. If not, best re-think putting the Lord to such a foolish test, dumbasses.
It's also wrong to try and back-door ban abortion under color of crisis. There is a freshness date on terminating a pregnancy, which, sadly, continues to be legal in this republic.
If one wishes to change that, either:
- have someone COVID-positive cough on Ruth Vader Ginsburg, or wait for the actuarial tables to solve that problem;
- have Congress remove the issue from the purview of the courts (which they can do at a pen stroke, and even SCOTUS can't say boo to it), and then outlaw the practice;
- wait until a suitable majority overturns the idiotic Roe v. Wade/Dred Scot for babies decision, and let federalism solve that problem. NFY, CA, and IL will probably keep it, but it will become mighty scarce from about Pennsylvania to AZ in about a minute and a half.
All of those are smarter, and to put a fine point on it, legal and just ways to solve that tangle under the Constitution.
Trying to bootstrap your prejudice or predilection for that, or any other sillyass position, and slip it in under the sheeps' clothing of Kung Flu Response, is the sort of thing that should get you a nice scalding hot tar and chicken feathers spa treatment, and a ride out of the city limits sitting on a rail carried by the torch-and-pitchfork mob, never to be allowed to return.
We once told the mightiest empire in the world to get f**ked, and made them our bitch by making it stick. Doing the same to any would-be local Napoleons now should it become necessary, ought to be small work. Many of us are willing, able, and a wee bit more than enthusiastic about the prospect of that undertaking.
You want to get another revolution? This sort of happy horseshit is how you get another revolution.
Zero fucks will be given.
And if we have to chop heads off and string some bastards up while wearing gloves and N95 masks, or in MOPP Level IV, or just lobster bibs and carnations in our lapels, we'll manage, I assure you.
