People who read Maus realize that not every holocaust will look the same and that every holocaust starts uniquely, subtly, organically, and pretty benignly, generally initiated by people you admire and trust. It's not a switch. It's a cool pot of water sitting on a low flame. It happens right under your nose, especially if and when you're being willfully ignorant and actively blind.

2008: "pre-existing conditions should not be a condition for medical care!"

2020: [a wild pre-existing condition appears]

2021: "pre-existing conditions should be a condition of medical care!"

It troubles me that people who are *this bad* at reasoning are allowed in public unsupervised, let alone given a microphone and a platform.

Formerly "woke" TV and radio producer, Tara Henley, explains how she finally snapped out of it and resigned from the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

many of us not in the mass formation are going to have to pull up our socks and make sure we have the timeline of gubmint lies & fabrications straight- at least in our heads- before the mainstream narrative forming begins. i know many have the memory the size of a goldfish when it comes to events like these, which is not entirely their own fault when being bombarded constantly by conflicting info. we must remind them when the time comes and they eventually break out of the stockholm syndrome

on that topic, the bat theory was a perfect deflection on the chiners part. the "chinese eat weird animals" stereotype is already cemented in the people's heads, so it was simple for them to push the narrative a little bit over here, then decry us for being MEAN :(

it's also not hard if you have a communist prime minister who likes to call his constituents racists & misogynists at any available oppurtunity

Show thread

been thinking more about the narrative split between the bat vs the lab leak. if one subscribes to the bat theory, then everything that has followed was simply a reaction to a global crisis. on the other hand, if it came from a lab, one might start asking questions...

Important tip: If you want to be invited back to a No Agenda Meetup, don’t bring a huge liberal who gets drunk, hits on someone half their age, proclaims that vaccine injuries are no big deal and that they can show you videos of how Biden win legitimately.
