(Mar. 30, 2020) — It is evident that the leftist media cares far more about continuing its pogrom against President Trump than it cares about fighting the Wuhan COVID-19 virus here or reporting on the Herculean efforts being brought to bear against the pandemic by the president. Nothing… repeat, nothing that the president does is enough to quench the thirst of Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough and other media vermin for Trump’s head over the pandemic. The quislings are among us: in this regard, there should be no intelligent debate.
The term “quisling” derives from Vidkun Quisling, a Norwegian army officer, who in 1939 met with Adolf Hitler, urging him to occupy Norway at the dawn of World War II. The term has evolved into one describing a traitor or collaborator with an occupying enemy force. Today, the occupying enemy force in the United States is the Wuhan COVID-19 virus. The collaborators are the Chuck Todds, Joe Scarboroughs and Chris Cuomos – to name but a few – populating the vast, barren desert of the mainstream media.
For example, on last Sunday’s NBC airing of Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Joe Biden whether he thought President Trump had “blood on his hands” for the administration’s purported delay in responding to the virus. Biden – in a fleeting nanosecond of lucidity – responded that such a characterization was “a little too harsh.”
Todd’s question, coming in the midst of a worldwide pandemic which in this nation President Trump is doing everything possible to fight, was about as canary yellow as journalism can get and still masquerade as “journalism.” Biden’s response was no better, as it suggested that the question contained a patina of truth. Wrong. And these are the people who would lecture us and purport to govern us?
Then there was Joe Scarborough suggesting that President Trump’s consideration of re-opening the economy – at least on a limited basis – by Easter amounted to a “death sentence” for seniors, veterans and members of the “Greatest Generation.” That generation, for you millennials and Gen-Xer’s out there, consists of the men and women of World War II who preserved a country where today, you do not have to speak German (east of the Mississippi) or Japanese (west of the Mississippi). Today, evaluating new data and taking the counsel of the professionals on his team, President Trump extended the CDC “virus safety guidelines” until April 30. Painful, but prudent.
But Scarborough’s analogizing of the president’s desire to re-open the nation’s economy before it completely collapses to an intent to throw under a moving bus, among others, the Americans who saved the nation in World War II – and, by the way, preserved a First Amendment platform for Scarborough and his kindred intellectual termites to spew their technicolor yawns – is beyond despicable.
Yet, as with virtually all things espoused by those crippled by Trump Derangement Syndrome – an affliction even more deadly than Wuhan COVID-19 – Scarborough’s bile was entirely expected. These are clinically sick people. Too bad they don’t make cerebral ventilators.
On the bright side, however, now that the FDA has granted emergency approval for the “off-label” use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, there may soon be a dramatic addition to the arsenal being assembled by President Trump to battle the disease.
But rest assured, if the drug and treatment regimen proves effective, the incompetent Three Amigo Democrats – Governors Andrew Cuomo (New York), Gretchen Whitmer (Michigan) and Steve Sisolak (Nevada), who initially prohibited use of the drug in their states to fight the virus, will pivot and actually blame President Trump for listening to them in the first place. He should have known better.
They likely will howl that Trump’s delay in ordering the immediate use of the drug, while claiming it “could have saved hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of lives,” was inexcusable. Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo will nod approvingly. See, ye unwashed redneck WalMarters? It is always Trump’s fault. One is reminded of the claim by the Mayor of New Orleans – Democrat LaToya Cantrell – that President Trump bears the blame for the Wuhan COVID-19 spike down there because he should have shut down the Mardi Gras celebration which she decided to allow. Wow.
As usual these days, your humble servant concludes this offering with the observation – one having the added virtue of truth – that once again, the Democrats have proven that they have absolutely and irretrievably forfeited any claim of right or ability to govern a free people in a constitutional republic such as ours. The remedy is to defeat every single Democrat running for office and/or membership in the Congress in November. No exceptions. Boom.
And, yes, I channeled the Founders again. They concur.
