    Last night I watched CNN reporter Wolf Blitzer’s segment about the shutdown of the Foster Farms chicken plant due to Covid-19 infections. For the story he interviewed a Biden supporter, a Hawkins supporter, a Jorgensen supporter, and a Trump supporter. He asked each of them: “Excuse me, what’s your opinion about the meat shortage?” The Biden supporter replied: “What’s an opinion?” The Hawkins supporter replied: “What’s meat?” The Jorgensen supporter replied: “What’s a shortage?” The Trump supporter replied: “What’s excuse me?”

    Here’s Something Weird and Confusing. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8699539/Two-Boogaloo-Bois-charged-attempting-team-Hamas-bizarre-plot.html

    Two anti-government extremist ‘Boogaloo Bois’ are charged with attempting to team up with Hamas ‘in plot to blow up courthouse and assassinate white supremacists and US senators’

    This makes the Boogaloo Bois sound left-wing. One of them even has a Jewish name, Solomon. Yet he wants to team up with Hamas?

    I thought Boogaloo Bois (sic?) were white nationalists. But this article says they want to kill white nationalists. Solomon is shown in a photo at a BLM protest.

    The article further describes them as … libertarian.

    From the article:

    Boogaloo activists are often spotted heavily armed and wearing Hawaiian shirts, a reference to the ‘Big Luau,’ a code-word they adopted when Facebook banned Boogaloo-related groups.

    Their beliefs are not always easily categorized in conventional political terms, but might be best described as extreme libertarian.

    They are opposed to the police and American government, which they hope to see overthrown.

    Though they have sometimes been described as white supremacists, some Boogaloo supporters appear to be violently opposed to racist ideology.

    Four years ago yesterday, Zdenek Gazda, the Zapruder of this era, captured the moment the tide shifted in the 2016 election. At the 9/11 memorial, he documented Hillary Clinton collapsing at her motorcade, revealing to voters an underlying condition the campaign hid. Donald Trump won the election.

    The fact that Netflix would even consider hosting the show “Cuties” shows perhaps Don Grundmann was right all along.

    Or maybe it serves as a reminder that Gabbard has some questionable religious fundamentalist skeletons in her closet.
