The Morning Rant

"You know they say that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. I think the same can be applied to NeverTrumpers. It looks like bitter clinger Erick Erickson may have just took a hard shot to the head and woke up in an alley without his watch and wallet. At the end of May, his Twitter account was temporarily suspended. What did he do? He made a joke about Fauxcahontas Warren's fake ancestry claims and this was deemed "hateful conduct" by the TwitterStasi and thus a rules violation. Now, Erick has always been a mainstream, even a bit of a milquetoast conservative who only gets angry by something really outrageous, like, say, Donald Trump being elected president. And he watched 'fringe' figures like Alex Jones and Laura Southern deplatformed on various social media and thought, hey, they're icky fringe people, so it's a good thing that they got the heave-ho. We don't want those types stinking things up for us PureCons, anyway. So I don't think it ever entered his head that Twitter would lower the boom on him. This may have triggered Erick to write this rant a few days later. It's basically an apologetic for Trump calling for a boycott of AT&T because of CNN's outrageously biased and unfair news coverage. Because AT&T owns Warner which owns CNN. Erickson says he doesn't like it, but he can't fault the president for playing by the rules the left has laid down. In fact, he's sounding like a milder version of Kurt Schlichter in his newly-acquired view that if the left is using brass knuckles, then the right should, too. He says, quote, if anything, the President should escalate this fight with AT&T. The company wanted Warner so badly, the President should make them regret it. Unquote. Now we can all jeer at Erickson for being a johnny-come-lately, and hey, I won't deny that would be fun. However, as Ben Franklin once said, experience is an expensive school, but some men will learn at no other. So let's not begrudge Erickson having to learn things the hard way. Nobody is irredeemable."

Monday's celebs: Beverly Garland and Rory Calhoun

Ms. Garland's résumé’ is a mile long, extending from 1949 to 2004. She did some 50s B-movies and horror films, but was better than that. She had a starring role in the 1957 TV series Decoy in about 1959-60, playing an undercover policewoman, the first police drama featuring a female lead. All 39 episodes of this series are available on Amazon Prime, which is how she first came to my attention. It's actually not bad, and the supposed "sexism" that the SJWs would expect is completely absent. She did her job as a cop, and the male cops respected her and worked with her.

(h/t Wolfus Aurelius)

Calhoun did a butt ton of westerns, including one with Ms. Garland, The Saga of Hemp Brown, which was why I picked him for 'ette bait. I know him mostly from Motel Hell, a f*ed up horror movie I genuinely regret watching. Not because of Calhoun, but because it was f*ed up.
