Coronavirus and Selective Outrage: Justice is no longer Blind

Guest Contribution by Karen Kataline

Sheriff Steve Reams of Weld County, Colorado is being sued by six inmates of his jail for “not preventing” a coronavirus outbreak. Not surprisingly, the ACLU is representing them.

Few people believe the lawsuit has to do with coronavirus as much as with Sheriff Reams’ outspoken opposition to the draconian “Red Flag” Laws that were passed in Colorado by the current Democrat power monopoly in Denver.

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo on the other hand, who has the highest rate of coronavirus infections and deaths in the country has received no criticism for similar Leftist hysterians. (like sectarians, only different)   In fact, Democrats are salivating over the possibility that they could somehow move creepy and clueless Joe Biden out of the way and run Cuomo for President instead.

Selective outrage doesn’t work as well unless you have Liberals and Leftists marching in lock step.  Didn’t they used to believe in “doing your own thing”?   Now, they believe we must all behave and think alike. We must hate all the people they want us to hate and give a pass to those they want us to see as perpetual victims.

We know all too well the names with which they’ll bully us if we don’t: Racist!, Sexist!, Homophobe!, Xenophobe!. If you’re branded with those overly-general suspiciously bigoted labels, you deserve to lose your business, your reputation and be an example to others that you better not deviate from the selective outrage narrative.  That immediately included ostracizing anyone who questioned the unprecedented shutdown of the country because of coronavirus.

Liberals and Leftists used to believe we should question everything—especially, authority. Now they take orders from government bureaucrats as if in a collectivist cult. Freedom lovers don’t mind if they want to be in that cult. The problem is always that they want to force you to be in it too.

I watched a dutiful, face-masked woman at the grocery store pull out her cloth bags so she could save the planet, only to be told that they can’t be used because of the coronavirus.  The bandwagon changes directions quickly, depending on the band’s political needs.

Leftists are happy to overlook criminal behavior when it suits them as well. They don’t consider the crime or the circumstances under which it was committed. Their position depends almost entirely on the group to which that person belongs.

Now, they’re using the coronavirus to go after Sheriffs they hate while cheering law enforcement officers they used to hate for harassing and arresting a father playing ball with his wife and daughter in an empty park.

It’s time to remove the mask on the mouth of Blind Justice and return it to her eyes where it belongs.

Liberals go Crazy Because Gorsuch says…Merry Christmas????

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every time you get to thinking the liberal outrage mob on Twitter cannot possibly get any more stupid or insane than they already are, they go out and prove you wrong. – Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch appeared on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning to promote some new book he has written, something fellow justices like Sonya Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have also done in recent years on CNN and MSNBC.

Justice Gorsuch’s appearance would have likely gone unremarked but for the fact that, as he was signing off, he wished the program’s hosts a “Merry Christmas.”

Predictably, the anti-Christian bigots in the liberal outrage mob on Twitter went utterly and completely berserk over that one. As a public service to our readers, we here at the Campaign Update have herewith compiled some of the dumbest, nastiest and just plain idiotic…er…est tweets issued by the liberal lunatics, just so you don’t have to dive into the Twitter cesspool yourselves.

 

So, here we go, starting with this from Alinskyite Lawfare lawyer Susan Hennessey, who says it is “weird” for a SC justice to promote a book in one phrase, then acknowledges that other SC justices have done the same exact thing in her very next thought. No wonder she’s a CNN contributor:

Then there’s some guy named (checks tweet) Sean Kent, who apparently is some sort of half-assed comic, who is outraged that Justice Gorsuch had the temerity to utter the phrase “Merry Christmas” during this, the Christmas season of the year:

Oh, but it just gets better…

Here’s little growth-stunted, bald-headed Brian Stelter exhibiting his consistent utter lack of any self-awareness whatsoever:

…and here is Garrett Ventry informing Mr. pea-brain why his tweet is so utterly clueless:

Oh.

But it gets better still. Here is some person named “Molly McKew” who claims she is some sort of foreign policy expert, brainlessly wondering why Justice Gorsuch is, um…..well, you can read it:

Oh, I dunno, Molly, maybe because HE WAS INVITED???? Good lord.

Ok, y’all, hide the kids now, because this clown, who claim he is both – BOTH, I tell you – an “award-winning artist” and…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one… a “SPORTS CARD STORE OWNER” [!!!!!] is all, like, totes angry about it all:

Yeah! You tell ’em, Tony Posnansky, you sports card store owner and award-winning artist, you!

*sigh*

But believe it or not, we aren’t done yet.

Ladies and gentlemen (or whatever your preferred pronouns might be – I personally prefer “Tex” and “Bubba”), I give you a person who calls herself “Mayday Mindy”, whose Twitter profile actually, really and truly reads:

I say what People Think🤨Anti Trump🍊🐶2 dogs 3 kids❤️😎I was the artsy semi cute cool girl

 

Oh, cooooooools, Mindy! LULZ! TOTES! You rule!
*sigh*
Anyway, here’s what the artsy semi cute cool girl had to say about the Justice’s appearance on Fox and Friends:

I know – hardly seemed worth all the build-up, right? Right.

But don’t worry, I have saved the very best of the Twitter Outrage Mob’s outrage-fest for last. Friends, I give you the stylings of one Amee Vanderpool, or as she calls herself on Twitter, @girlsreallyrule:

Image

So, there you have it: In today’s liberal Twitter Outrage Mob Culture, the phrase 98% of you grew up saying throughout your entire childhoods – “Merry Christmas” – is now officially nothing more than a “talking point of the GOP,” and a “Republican narrative.” No more “Merry Christmas” for Democrats no sir, er, ma’am, er, it, er…nevermind.

You seriously could never make these people up, folks. Never in a million years.

That is all.

Two Toddlers Give us a Glimpse of America Outside of the Perpetual Outrage Mob

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

See? There is still justice in America. – If you were as outraged last year by the absurdly-light 30-day sentence handed down to the attacker of Senator Rand Paul, well, take heart: That case was remanded back to the federal district court that issued it yesterday by the 6th Circuit Court of appeals. The 6th Circuit ruled that the district judge lacked a “compelling justification” for the light sentence for the commission of an assault on a member of congress so brutal that Sen. Paul is still trying to recover fully from it.

The new Three Stooges: Sleepy, Sleazy and Dopey.

If Vaudeville – where the original Three Stooges got their start – still existed, these guys would be a huge hit.

This is what real America – as opposed to social media/conventional media perpetual outrage America – really looks like:

Those of us who pay close attention to the news and are active on social media tend to forget that. The merchants of perpetual outrage at places like CNN, the New York Times, Facebook and Twitter want you all to believe that America is this horrible place where everyone hates everyone else and where every day in every city is just another confrontation between Antifa terrorists and the Proud Boys agitators. Conventional media and social media outlets want you to believe that that is the world you all live in because that belief generates traffic to their websites and viewers to their TV channels.

That’s the America they’re all trying to create.

But real America is different, and the real America perseveres.

The real America is a place in which my wife and I could take our entire three-generation family to spend a week in New York City last December and never experience anything but lovely, pleasant interactions with people of all races, colors, religions and creeds in crowded places all over the city.

The real America is the place where you go to your grandkids’ elementary school for Grandparents’ Lunch day, and spend an hour watching hundreds of children of all races, economic standing and upbringings and dozens of teachers and school administrators do nothing but smile, laugh and dine with one another.

The real America is the place where you go to the local Wal-Mart or Target or grocery store and don’t for a moment notice or care what the race or political leanings of the people shopping and working there happens to be.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people get up every morning and go to work and engage in all manner of collaborative efforts with people from all manner of backgrounds and ages and get real stuff done that generates economic growth and improves our society. And then they get a group of those same people together to go grab a beer when they’re done working.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people still get up on the Sabbath and go to churches, synagogues and mosques in thousands of cities in all 50 states.

The real America is the place where millions of little kids like the two in that video run up and hug each other and express real, genuine love because that is their natural behavior. The people at ABC who posted that video on Twitter yesterday want you to think that is a rare thing, but it’s something you can see everywhere in America every day if you just pay attention.

The perpetual outrage and hate thrown at us every day by the conventional media and social media mobs are learned behaviors, not our natural state.

The real America is the place in which tens of millions of ordinary, every day people of all religions, all races, all colors, all social standings and all backgrounds refuse to learn those behaviors.

That real America drives the perpetual outrage mob nuts. Keep it up.

That is all.
