Cheerful Coronavirus Predictions

Congratulations to The People’s Cube, which celebrated its 15th birthday yesterday. Despite the grimness of the Wuhan coronavirus lockdown, the site will leave readers in a festive mood, thanks to these cheerful predictions:

By the time the pandemic is over, everyone will be convinced that…

1. Open borders are a menace.

2. Globalization is a menace.

3. Public transportation is a menace, while private cars keep families safe.

4. Public schools are a menace.

5. Homeschooling is great.

6. Gun owners have fewer anxieties to deal with during a crisis.

7. Hollywood is a bunch of nincompoops.

8. The mainstream media is a useless menace.

9. Communists can’t be trusted and are a menace.

10. Capitalist enterprise reacts to emergencies faster and more efficiently, while the obstructionist bureaucracy is a menace.

11. All essentials must be manufactured within our own borders.

12. A businessman makes a better president than a career politician.

The Democrats running the media have bent over backward trying to exploit the crisis to their political advantage, but the long-term effects may not be in their favor.

Democrats Racialize Coronavirus Testing

The issue is never the issue with Democrats; the issue is always ramming Cultural Marxism down our throats, often in the form of preferences for Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation. The Wuhan coronavirus crisis is not the issue; the issue is whether a high enough percentage of those tested for it are sacred non-Caucasians.

This ought to be from the Babylon Bee. Actually, it is from the Boston Globe, via Frontpage Magazine:

In a letter sent Friday to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, both from Massachusetts, said comprehensive demographic data on people who are tested or treated for the virus that causes COVID-19 does not exist.

Ayanna Pressley, is a member of the Squad, which seems to be steering the course for the Democrat Party. The other members are her fellow radicals Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib.

Warren’s fellow senators and 2020 presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Cory Booker also signed the letter.

The lawmakers urged the HHS secretary to direct the department’s sub-agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, to work with municipalities, states and private labs to ensure that racial and ethnic data are being collected.

As if healthcare officials don’t have better things to do with COVID-19 raging.

If it is up to these prominent Democrats, coronavirus testing will be based at least in part on the patient’s position in the hierarchy of political correctness.

Warren has already said that healthcare resources should be apportioned on a racial basis.

America dodged a bullet when her alarming presidential campaign collapsed, but there are other paths to power. The non compos mentis and visibly decrepit Joe Biden has enthused over her as a potential VP.

Is Ol’ Joe Gonna Make It?

Trump’s daily press briefings on the Wuhan coronavirus crisis must be impressing the public that he is dealing with the situation, because left-wing propaganda outlets would rather leave the public in ignorance than put them on the air. CNN and MSNBC are so desperate to find something else to fill airtime that they have turned to Joe Biden. But Creepy Uncle Joe’s senile blithering only serves to make it more obvious that he is not suited for any position of responsibility:

Hope Is So 2008

The media loved hope in 2008, when it was the slogan of the Moonbat Messiah’s presidential campaign. Now that it is Donald Trump offering hope, it has become a dirty word. This is typical of the malevolent distortion that has typified liberal establishment media coverage of the Wuhan coronavirus crisis:

Chilean Leftist Carolina Cox Trapped in Cuba

The Wuhan coronavirus delivered a dose of poetic justice to Chilean leftist Carolina Cox. She has been trapped in the sort of country she wants to turn her own into and is not enjoying the experience. From Diario de Cuba, translation by Babalú Blog:

From Cuba, Chilean actress Carolina Cox called on her government to get her off the island where she has been stranded after flights out were canceled due to the spreading of COVID-19 all over the island. …

“It’s super distressing being in a country where there’s shortages of soap, toilet paper, our accounts are blocked because of the blocks on Cuba, connecting to the internet is very difficult, our credit cards don’t work [,,,] There’s people who need medicine, among us are kids, elderly, families,” she explained.

There’s a shortage of toilet paper in the USA too, thanks to hoarders. The difference is, in communist countries, there is always a shortage of everything except tyranny.

The actress, who has been an activist promoting the protests against the government of [Chilean President] Sebastian Piñera these past months and has declared herself a support of leftist regimes in the region, finished her message with a demand that her government do something about getting her back to Chile.

Cox carries a virus capable of inflicting more long-term damage than COVID-19, namely leftist politics. If the government she is trying to bring down is wise, it will not make bringing her back a priority.

Too bad the Hollyweird (e.g., Oliver Stone) and Big Journalism (e.g., Andrea Mitchell) leftists who praise the horrific communist regime in Cuba can’t be stranded there too.

LGBT Bigots Denounce Christians Helping Coronavirus Patients

If you want to see a bigot, look for the person screaming “bigot” the loudest. In New York, that would be State Senator Brad Hoylman, who finds it intolerable that lives could be saved by Franklin Graham and other Christians.

Via Town Hall:

An openly gay and anti-Christian New York state senator has condemned Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse for wanting to treat coronavirus patients.

Samaritan’s Purse set up an emergency field tent hospital in Central Park at the request of city officials. The respiratory unit, which will be supervised by Mount Sinai Hospital, can accommodate 68 patients.

Hoylman finds this unacceptable, because Graham is a “notorious anti-gay bigot,” by which he means a Bible-believing Christian. Therefore, his assistance is not welcome.

Reverend Graham responds:

“This virus is a tsunami that is hitting our shores. It’s killing Republicans. It’s killing Democrats. It’s killing independents,” Graham said. “And we just need to say forget the politics right now. Let’s work together to save lives.”

Fat chance. With the LGBT crowd, only their agenda matters.

In case anyone takes the “antigay” denunciations seriously, Reverend Graham makes his stance clear:

“We’re going to give the best health care we can to all New Yorkers, it doesn’t matter who they are or what they are. We’re going to give them the best medical care that we possibly can in Jesus’ name.”

The only bigotry here is against Christians. Even Bill de Blasio, although made uncomfortable by Graham’s moral values, welcomes the help. Leftist and LGBT media outlets are another matter.

HuffPost demonizes Graham:

A staunch ally of President Donald Trump, Graham has repeatedly sparked controversy for inflammatory remarks about the LGBTQ community. Previously, he’s suggested that welcoming LGBTQ people into churches or Christian households is akin to allowing Satan to “devour our homes.”

In 2014, he praised Russian President Vladimir Putin’s anti-LGBTQ agenda. Last year, he denounced former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg for being a gay man of faith.

LGBTQ Nation denounces Samaritan’s Purse for its opposition to transgender depravity, homosexual “marriage,” and abortion — i.e., for being a Christian organization.

That’s what matters to moonbats, not getting the sick onto ventilators so that they can breathe.

Obama Drags Climate Change Into Coronavirus Crisis

Liberals already tried to make the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic about race. It was only a matter of time until they tried to tie it to their other morbid obsession, the global warming hoax. The Moonbat Messiah himself has established a tenuous connection — at the same time breaking the unwritten law by which former presidents must have enough class to refrain from sniping at current presidents, particularly when they are dealing with a crisis:

Rush Limbaugh is appalled:

“Who denied the warnings of a pandemic?” Asked Limbaugh. “Trump didn’t do it. The Democrats did. … There are pictures of [Nancy] Pelosi in Chinatown urging people to come out [in public amid the coronavirus pandemic].”

“In all of this, Obama’s worried about climate change which is something we can’t control,” he continued.

Even if we could control it, climate change is not an actual problem. If it were, Obama would not have just spent a massive fortune on a seaside mansion, considering that doom is supposed to come largely from rising oceans.

In contrast, the loss of life and extreme economic damage caused by the Chinese virus are quite real. Fortunately, they have been mitigated somewhat by Trump taking early action to cut off travel from China, which Obama’s VP denounced as “xenophobic fear-mongering.”

Normally moonbats blame all bad things directly on global warming. That is particularly hard with the Wuhan virus though, because people are aware that diseases like this thrive in cooler weather. That’s why cold and flu season starts in the fall and ends in the spring, and why there is hope that warming weather will cause the virus to recede.

Once again, global warming would be a good thing, if only we could get more of it.

Not Even Elton John Is PC Enough Now

Never mind the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, we have serious issues. While hosting the iHeart Living Room Concert for America on Sunday, Elton John failed to refer to the gender-neutral Sam Smith with the pronouns he demands.

Among Sam Smith fans, this is a big problem:

Grammy-winning singer Smith had come out as non-binary back in September 2019, announcing that they have changed their pronouns to gender-neutral ones: they/them/their.

And yet:

Introducing Smith, John said live on air: “Here from HIS bedroom in HIS home in London, is my dear friend Sam Smith” And taking it to Twitter right away, fans of Smith voiced their opinions on them getting misgendered constantly.

There have been calls for Elton John to be “canceled” — i.e., shunned by the herd.

Misgendering is a serious thought crime. Just because he is a flamboyant homosexual and “married” to another man does not place Elton John above the laws of political correctness. Unless he grovelingly apologizes at once, he should not only be canceled, but have his knighthood revoked.

Yes, Elton John really was knighted. At the rate society is decomposing, they may as well knight Sam Smith too.

Supermarket Employees Will Not Touch Reusable Shopping Bags

Regarding pushback against politically correct but unsanitary reusable shopping bags in light of the Wuhan coronavirus, the free market weighs in:

[Supermarkets] Safeway and Albertsons say if you bring your own bag, employees will not be able to touch them or fill them, so you’ll have to do your own bagging. …

The policy is not unique to supermarkets. Trader Joe’s, Total Wine and More, Target and dollar stores are reportedly following similar procedures.

Some stores also are reserving the right to decline customers’ reusable bags and give them paper or plastic bags at no charge. …

[S]tores are worried that reusable bags might endanger both employees and customers because they could potentially transmit SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

It is encouraging that steps are finally being taken to address enviromoonbattery as a menace to public health.

Moonbat Authorities and Social Distancing

Nancy Pelosi blaming Trump for the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus is staggering when you consider that just a month ago, she was encouraging crowds to congregate in Chinatown. On the other coast, local authorities made similar exhortations. London’s Islamomoonbat Mayor Sadiq Khan was also slow to grasp the importance of avoiding tight crowds. More bad advice was given by authorities in Italy and Spain.

As Paul Joseph Watson observes, this is not social distancing:

Jail Time for Leaving Your Home

As noted earlier, the Wuhan coronavirus has created favorable conditions for anarchotyranny. As authorities let criminals run loose in, for example, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Baltimore, regular citizens are threatened with jail time for taking a walk in Washington:

Mayor Muriel Bowser is threatening residents of Washington, DC, with 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak.

Jail is a particularly bad place to be right now.

The threat of jail is alarming residents and civil libertarians who point out that at least five inmates tested positive for COVID-19 in the city’s 1,700-inmate jail near Capitol Hill.

In the name of fighting COVID-19, the petty tyrants running Washington threaten to plunge normal people into an environment that makes contracting it far more likely. Once again, a Big Government fix promises to make the problem worse.

It isn’t just DC:

The states of Virginia and Maryland have announced that violating any lockdown edict to supposedly stop the coronavirus pandemic can be punished by up to one year in jail.

The idea of people of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s caliber helping themselves to martial law powers is scarier than the virus itself.

Rachel Maddow Learns Not to Make Spiteful Short-Term Predictions

Good thing her audience stays safely insulated from factual information inside their bubble of liberal BS. Otherwise, even they might laugh at Rachel Maddow’s latest pratfall:

Just over one week ago, MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow called President Trump’s claim that two U.S. Navy medical ships would soon be operational “nonsense.” By Monday morning, both ships had arrived at their destinations in Los Angeles and New York City. …

“The president said when he announced that those ships would be put into action against the COVID-19 epidemic. He said one of those ships would be operational in New York harbor by next week. That’s nonsense. It will not be there next week,” she claimed.

Wouldn’t Madcow love to stuff this down the memory hole:

Spiteful ankle-biting should never be confused with information. That’s why only a moonbat would attempt to learn what’s going on out there by watching MSNBC.

Ms Madcow has baked herself a crow pie. Mark Dice laughingly grinds it into her face as he reminds us that she is only the tip of an iceberg of MSM journalistic malfeasance:
