Different Strokes for Different Folks

In the world in which we now live–where certain people are not allowed to speak or write about certain topics–it’s heartening to learn that even though some folks are silenced, others are not (but only because the silencers are confounded when it comes to treating these other folks the same way they treat the silenced folks).

Equity. It’s only a word. In this instance, it’s a blessing to us that equity isn’t being delivered to certain folks.

Everything’s Fake, a Shell Game

Misinformation and disinformation, especially regarding COVID-19, is a frequent topic of discussion.

According to the Biden administration, false or misleading information about COVID-19 or vaccines is

an urgent threat to public health.

In the video at the link, an activist called Imran Ahmed says misinformation is a “biosecurity threat” that “kills” people. Anthony Fauci calls disinformation an “enemy of public health.”

We Agree: This HAS Gotta Stop

Eric Clapton, who suffered severe side effects from COVID-19 “vaccination,” has released a new song entitled “This Has Gotta Stop.” A UK online news site reports:

While the song does not directly mention lockdown measures or vaccines, the musician has performed on anti-vaccine songs in recent months. His latest offering has been interpreted by some as an attack on the measures recommended by health officials.

Or not!

Of what this is indicative, I can’t say, but this story struck me as simultaneously amusing, sad, and perhaps even racist. The story comes from The St. Louis American: [emphasis added to quotes]

Published continuously, without missing a single issue, since 1928, The St. Louis American newspaper has emerged as the leading, most-trusted voice of the area’s African-American community

POV Potpourri

newsies

A potpourri of items from the web and in the news, with some (let’s hope) pertinent comments upon them:

First up, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot spends long minutes quibbling with a reporter because he called violence in her city last summer “race riots.” After excoriating him for his opinion that these were race riots, she then admonished him for criticizing her own opinion, false though it may be, that 99.9% of criticism thrown her way is only because she’s black, female, (and lesbian). So reporters don’t have a “right” to critique her opinions but she seems to believe that she has a right to critique theirs. Different strokes!
