Lynette Christmas wants her day in court. Not just against the former deputy who assaulted her, who is now jobless and financially unable to pay restitution, but against the department and the county who enabled his actions.

Commentary: Dr. Fauci knew

Drs. Fauci, Daszak and Shi knew that no other SARS-related beta coronavirus has a furin cleavage site. The rest of these viruses have parts S1 and S2 of the spike protein cleaved at a different site and with a different mechanism. And everyone in the virologist community has known since 1992 that you can make a virus much more deadly in the laboratory by giving it a furin cleavage site at the S1/S2 junction. There are at least eight published gain of function experiments adding a furin site to a virus to make it more effective, one published by Dr. Shi herself.

meaning in history: What’s Going On Here?

We know what’s going on. Progressives rule the day, and they’re relishing the control they have to dictate who lives and who dies to fit their utopian ideology.

STEVE WOODSMALL, U.S. AIR FORCE VETERAN: The president has the power to waive that and make those vaccines mandatory. … I think he should show the leadership and just go ahead and waive the informed consent requirement and go ahead and make that mandatory just from a system standpoint. And then those who decide that they’re not going to take it are literally in violation of a lawful order and then they can face consequence under the uniform code of military justice. 

You can go to prison for not taking the vaccine. It’s funny, you invite someone like that on your show, he says something like that out loud, with a television camera in the room, you don’t pause and say ‘excuse me, that’s lunacy,’ no one says anything. Court Martials for anyone who refuses to take an experimental vaccine to stop a pandemic that has already ended. 

What’s going on here? It’s so obviously unnecessary and vindictive that it makes you wonder what this is really about. At the very moment that the risk for young people dying from the coronavirus hits zero, they’re telling us that soldiers should be arrested and go to jail if they don’t get the vaccine. They’re telling you that you’ll end up in a government database if you don’t comply, and that government agents will be showing up and knocking on your door. What’s really going on?

If you hate the culture wars, blame liberals

It’s interesting that this white leftist sees the huge leftward shift of his own side, driven by white folks.

….Over the last four years, white liberals have become a larger and larger share of the Democratic Party….And since white voters are sorting on ideology more than nonwhite voters, we’ve ended up in a situation where white liberals are more left wing than Black and Hispanic Democrats on pretty much every issue: taxes, health care, policing, and even on racial issues or various measures of “racial resentment.” So as white liberals increasingly define the party’s image and messaging, that’s going to turn off nonwhite conservative Democrats and push them against us.

McWhorter: Wokeism is a religion; the problem is that it’s a ‘sh***y religion’

As McWhorter points out, you don’t have to work very hard to see the underlying religious elements of AA or other 12-step groups. All that’s missing is a call for white people to turn over their privilege to a higher power.

Ultimately, he concludes that the real problem with wokeism isn’t that it’s a religion but that it’s a bad one that focuses on an appearance of social justice purity at the expense of any good works.

An alternate-universe version of The Elect would be forging, even with a certain smug impatience with real questions, real change on the ground for real people who need help. That religion would be fine with me. In a way, it is the Catholicism of, say, Dorothy Day.

However, the this-universe version of The Elect make a pretense of being about activism when what really gets them going is shaming people and virtue signaling, while exploiting black people they don’t truly respect as tools for the former – as actual black people join them unaware of the profound dismissal that pity entails.

So the problem is not that The Elect is a religion. It’s that it’s a sh***y religion.
