The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

So, just like the election of Donald Trump exposed a bunch of conservatives who really aren't conservative (and perhaps never were), the coronavirus crisis has exposed a bunch of people who apparently flunked civics. For example, as you see down below, Ms. Jong-Fast is appalled that the states have to govern themselves, which is pretty much according to what our constitution says. And this from someone who writes for the Bulwark, conserving conservatism.

Apparently, being completely ignorant of how our national government was designed to function is not an impediment to getting a job at the Bulwark. Probably the only requirement is chanting "Orange Man bad!" a few times.

But there are other takes that are almost as bad. Like this one here: quote, Fascinating to see which conservatives are totally fine with Mayors & Governors shutting down private businesses. It's one thing for govt to recommend social distancing. It's an abuse of power to dictate private enterprise stop, end quote.

And this is where a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

Just because it would be an abuse of power for the federal goverment to shut down local businesses, enforce curfews, and limit travel, it doesn't follow that it's an abuse of power for state or local governments to take such steps in a public health crisis. It might not be wise or prudent to do so, but it is not outside the constitutional purview of local governments.

But I understand the distrust. As ace mentioned in one of his rants yesterday, state and municipal governments haven't exactly covered themselves with glory here. They've let the vagrancy problem spiral out of control until the streets are running with poo. They've ordered the police to stand aside while antifa mobs beat up bystanders and take control over whole areas of blue cities. And then police departments announce that they're no longer going to be prosecuting or even making arrests for certain crimes, thus effectively legalizing them. All the while refusing to cooperate with ICE and even releasing illegal aliens with violent criminal histories back into the general population, where they, get this, continue to rape and murder.

And don't get me started on civil asset forfeiture.

So when the local gendarmerie comes around and tells you to close your business "for your own safety", it's OK to not believe they have your best interests in mind. They've spent the last generation pissing away whatever public trust they may once have had. Like the media. It's just like the media. Just when we badly need them, both have been exposed as hopeless sinkholes of corruption and decay. It's like you've discovered that the house you've been living in that you thought would protect you is filled with termites.
