Read Dan Cox’s fairy tale here at the Washington Post. Get a new moron shaman, man. Yours didn’t eat enough leafy organic greens so his Red Bull powers are waning.
The timeline at USA Today shows that Statuary Hall had been breached by 2:33pm, almost an hour before Cox decided to Tweet this about the Vice President. Using his practically nonexistent Twitter account or some other, more-useful-to-authorities-application on the handheld device he brought with him, might he have seen what his compatriot idiots who posted every damn dangerous idiot thing they did to their various social media accounts? Or the violent threats these hotheads were sharing? Of course!
Dan Cox should resign. If he won’t, he should be expelled. Full stop. Enough.
By now, gentle readers, we know you’ve read and read and read all about what has happened this week. It’s so much to process. We’ll never get over it. Not ever.
We’ve been chewing over what to write, especially since we like to keep things local around here. If you’ve been following us on Facebook or Twitter you’ve been following all the terribleness that is Delegate Dan. If you want a quick catch up, read this report on Maryland Matters. He is, like many others of his ilk, operating under a false impression of what the 1st amendment actually means. We find it amusing that he’s left Twitter, but not Facebook, which banned Trump first! Maybe Pat Robertson’s school of lawyering doesn’t teach much constitutional law or logic!
Let’s all remind ourselves of what the 1st Amendment says, especially since the same people who are really confused about it seem to only have knowledge of a carefully concocted paraphrase of the 2nd Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Curiously there is no passage that says a social media organization cannot kick you off it’s platform for lying, inciting a riot, or calling for violence. It’s all about preventing the government from suppressing the free speech of its people through the passage of laws. “Congress shall make no law”, not “Twitter shall make no terms to curtail our blatant lies and calls for violence.” Once you click those terms of service, you agree to those terms of service. Love how all the free market folks can’t accept this.
No doubt you’ve heard about the local Frederick man who wore his ID badge to storm the Capitol with this walking advertisement of all of that is wrong with these Q folks:
There’s rumors, but nothing certain yet, that our very own splinter Republican group (they laughingly describe themselves as non-partisan), along with Delegate Dan sponsored buses that may have taken that same local young man down to the riot. Turn on your volume and go to their Facebook page to watch the video showing how very proud they were of themselves to embark upon their journey.
What’s even better is that they threw a complete Facebook fit last night over the removal of Trump’s social media accounts. We noticed this morning that a hero made a comment that was very quickly removed from their post. Which is allowable since it is their page, but is also completely hypocritical and a perfect example of irony when you are protesting a private company disrespecting your 1st amendment rights.
The comment that was quickly deleted:
And let’s not forget this little gem from yesterday:
And they still haven’t learned their lesson:
Now let’s take a deep breath of relief that we ran this one out of our local government:
No doubt we have at least a week and a half of nutbaggery ahead of us. Stay safe, stay vigilant, and let’s look forward to a nicer social media experience with all of these folks threatening to line Dan Bongino’s pockets by going off to the abyss known as Parler.
Of course there is the lingering potential complication that Parler is in jeopardy of being eliminated from the online shopping experiences Google and Apple provide if they can’t figure out a way to moderate their user experience in a fashion that does not foment violent uprisings. Bongino’s gravy train may dry up quickly. Happy trails, real patriots (not you, treasonous seditionists).
We heard through the grapevine that the Council is getting a lot of feedback from the turkeys who think that we should just open everything back up. And hey, we get it. This is not good for the economy and people need to make money.
The solution to this should not be to risk exposure to a pandemic virus that (checks notes…dear Zeus…latest is that it might make your teeth fall out????…please do not full yokel on us, people). At any rate, the point is that the long term health effects are not yet known, the virus has killed one in every 1,000 North Dakotans. So far. It ain’t over yet, folks. No matter how tired we all are.
The solution should be for us to support people who have to stay home, not for all of us to go get Covid at our favorite restaurants and bars (which we DO love dearly and make our community the distinct and vibrant place that it is) so that they can still get a paycheck.
What we need to be sure of is that while we all do our Thanksgiving Day Oprah gratitude journaling like:
Dear Oprah’s Gratitude Journal, I am thankful that I have never met Cindy Rose, Dan Cox, or Danny Farrar live and in person and they have never had the opportunity to breathe or shout Covid on me directly.
We also send off some genuine gratitude to the people making the most responsible decisions possible to prevent the spread of the virus. You can reach your County Council and County Executive through these pages via the email link. There is no reason we should be opening bars and not schools, but these are the choices that are being forced upon us by people’s refusal to be responsible. Also, if you want to show our local hospital some support, for we all know they are about to get slammed, support our fundraiser on their behalf.
Every day seems to be getting crazier and crazier doesn’t it? Like we are in an endless spiral of terribleness that doesn’t seem to be easing up. The only bright spot is the very real and verifiable fact that Joseph R. Biden won the presidency! And, unless someone invents a new way of counting that makes positive numbers go negative, there’s nothing any of these goons can do about that!
We really aren’t too worried about all the legal challenges because just look at the head of the Trump legal team today:
We know it’s all just nonsense. But that hasn’t stopped Delegate Dan from riding on up to Pennsylvania to be a part of this very bad and dumb legal team. We’ve been going back and forth on Twitter with him, because as futile as it really is to argue with him there are others watching. Here’s a sampling of the Lord’s work we’ve been doing lately:
There is no steal no matter what these people would like you to think. It’s really amazing how these same people who claim they are Patriots and “TRUE” Americans, become just the opposite when the democratic process doesn’t go in their favor. Then, like magic, they are very fine fascists. Not to mention liars. They would rather light the Constitution on fire, destroy our institutions, and make all future elections seem nefarious than admit that their narcissistic, incompetent, man-child of a candidate lost. They would put our nation in danger’s way by not allowing the next administration the information they need to combat an ever growing threat of a global pandemic, because they cannot fathom that a majority of Americans decided we needed to go down another path. What kind of people are they? What kind of legislator is Cox? Not one we want to keep.
While we are on the subject of Cox, read this very fine article that explains how he lost YET another lawsuit in which his goal seems to be to get as many people killed by the pandemic as possible. What a hero! Remember this, folks, when he tries to run for Hough’s Senate seat in a few years time. We need to leave these people who work 100% on emotion, 0% on information, by the wayside once and for all. Vigilance!
We have to turn our attention to one more local group that seems to be bent on this very dangerous, false, and self-serving narrative about fraudulent votes. If you’ve been a long time reader of ours, you’ll remember that the Frederick Conservative Club was formed as a reaction to Kirby losing to Kathy Afzali in the County Executive Race back in 2018. Kirby turned on anyone who supported Kathy or Regina Williams and a new group (whose board members change quite frequently) was formed that allegedly represented the true conservatives of this fine county. *Notice the pattern of not accepting the outcome of elections*
Well, a few days ago an alert reader sent us some pictures that appeared on their Facebook page. A group of them rented a bus to go to the Thousands for MAGA parade, and upon return there were some photos posted. However the last two pictures were not of the MAGA parade but of two very separate and very far away events! This alert reader attempted to point out this very deceptive error to the MAGA folks, but instead of taking the pictures down they removed his comments and banned him from the page. We also checked the origin of the photos and behold exhibits A and B:
Deception seems to be the name of the game around here lately. YOU LOST, people, and as we told Dan Cox you really need to get through your stages of grief a lot quicker than this. Because, whether you want to acknowledge it or not, you are tearing this country apart and quite honestly you should be ashamed of yourselves.
If you want to see some great video of the Thousands MAGA March, look at this clip from the Daily Show, it really tells you all you need to know:
