The Morning Rant

"There have been huge protests taking place in Hong Kong over the past several weeks. Crowd estimates are up to 2 million, which is quite remarkable for a country with a total population of 7 million.

Hong Kong protestors are singing hymns. In fact, the hymn 'Sing Hallelujah to the Lord' has become the unofficial anthem of the protests. But that's not all. They're also flying the American flag and singing the American national anthem.

"For these reasons, it is clear that this is not a progressive protest. This is a conservative and even, dare I say it, a Christian-based protest. You can also tell this is not a progressive-based protest because the protesters are removing the rubbish from the streets after the protests. This is something progressives never do. If this were a pink hat/Anti-Trump hate fest protest, the entire city would look and smell like a homeless camp, the streets would be filthy, filled with rubbish, and dotted with steaming piles of poo. And petty crime would be rampant, and some not so petty, like rape. Yeah, #metoo, b*tches.

"You can also tell these are not progressive protests because they are remaining focused on the issue that sparked them, that is, Beijing's proposed new extradition rules. In contrast, rat bastard commie protests are all over the map, as every brain-dead progressive with a grudge and a general feeling of resentment and entitlement (which would be all of them, actually) shows up to push his/her/xir pet issue, whether it's hate Trump, hate Israel, hate white people, hate guns, hate America, or hate Trump. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what the protests are actually about because of all the sub-protests, and I also think a number of guys show up just to party and to see if they can pick up some loose trim. Yeah, #metoo again.

"Progressives are no doubt champing at the bit to get involved with the HK protests to turn them into a progressive hate orgy. They would love to do that. But so far, they appear to have been unable to. Perhaps it's because of the hymn-singing and the flying of the American flag unironically and with pride. Singing Christian hymns to a progressive is, heh, waving an actual cross in the face of an actual vampire. Because progressives can only exist by draining the life of others. So never invite progressives to your protest. They'll only cause trouble, sh* all over everything and then run away, leaving you to clean up their mess."

Monday's celebs: Singer/songwriter Rita Coolidge and one of her erstwhile paramours Leon Russell. I had them linked romantically, but I did not know there's another connection:

196 The Rita Coolidge / Leon Russell connection is that they were both members of Joe Cocker's band during the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.

Posted by: Top.Man. at August 19, 2019 11:48 AM (FGTa+)

And not just Leon Russell. According to the 'Personal Life' section of her wiki page, Ms. Coolidge was very liberal with her affections in her younger years, and may have been a factor in the break-up of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young when she broke it off with Nash and hooked up with Stills. Or maybe it was the other way around, I forget. Another fun fact about Rita: there is credible evidence that she substantially wrote the coda for the Derek and the Dominos mega-hit Layla, for which she is uncredited (the 'coda' is the long piano solo at the end). The 'Layla' section of her wiki page has the story. Listen to this piece by her sister Priscilla and her husband Booker T. (yes, *that* Booker T.) and you'll hear what I'm talking about.

Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!

Please remember the Prayer of St. Francis:
