Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
New York Prioritizes “Non-white” for COVID Treatment
On December 27, the New York Department of Health issued COVID guidance to “Health Care Providers and Health Care Facilities.”
Due to a “severe shortage” of certain COVID treatments, like monoclonal antibodies, the state has prioritized certain people to receive these treatments.
Some of the guidance makes sense, like prioritizing people with certain risk factors.
However, the guidance links to another piece of New York policy which considers being non-white a higher risk factor…
“Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.”
In other words, white people go to the back of the line.
NYC Vax Gestapo Kick Little Boy and Family Out of Restaurant
A video shows New York City police kicking a family out of a restaurant because their little boy, about six years old, was not vaccinated.
An entire squad of police appear in the video, demanding the family leave as the little boy covers his face with his hands, and seems to wipe away tears.
The police then announce to all the patrons of the restaurant that they have a choice: show their vaccine papers to the gestapo, or leave voluntarily. Otherwise they will be arrested for trespassing.
In the video, one bystander can be heard asking police, “Is this what you signed up for… Is this what you dreamed of when you wanted to be a cop?”
A valid question.
MSNBC Host Refused Service for Unvaccinated Four Year Old Daughter
A host of an MSNBC podcast complained on Twitter that he was refused service at a New York City restaurant because his four year old daughter was not vaccinated.
He wrote, “I tried to explain theres (sic) no CDC guideline requiring children under 5 get vaccinated. But the restaurant didn’t care.”
WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED that discriminatory policies would lead to discrimination against unintended targets?
Certainly not media outlets like MSNBC, which issue a steady drip of propaganda demonizing the unvaccinated as filthy disease-infested vermin.
The host continued his Twitter rant, “And just to be clear, everyone else with me was vaccinated, boosted and/or had covid (me). My 4 yr old daughter has a letter from her doctor stating she recently had covid. But they didn’t care.”
I think this is called ‘a taste of your own medicine’.
Meanwhile, AOC Parties Maskless in Florida
You know who wasn’t dealing with New York’s insane COVID policies?
The US Congresswomen representing a portion of New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
AOC was spotted in Miami partying maskless at a crowded drag queen brunch.
In response, the Team DeSantis Twitter account tweeted, ”Welcome to Florida, AOC! We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL’s leadership.”
AOC shot back, “Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks? If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello.”
(For some reason the woke mob makes a big deal about DeSantis taking time off during the holidays so that he can accompany his wife to cancer treatment.)
Surprise! Latino Groups Reject the Woke Term ‘Latinx’
Social Justice Warriors keep trying to jam their newspeak down everyone’s throat.
For example, they decided that despite every noun in the Spanish language having a gender, we should use the gender neutral term “Latinx” to refer to Latinos and Latinas.
The only problem— Latinos and Latinas don’t want to be called Latinx. They are perfectly happy with their gender specific terms, and defaulting to Latino when referring to groups of mixed gender.
The head of the US House Hispanic Caucus, a Democrat, said last month that his congressional staff is banned from using the term.
He Tweeted, “When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use. It is a vicious circle of confirmation bias.”
Then, the League of United Latin American Citizens also banned the term from official communications.
An editorial in the Miami Herald also urged left wing activists to read the room and “retire it from official use.”
And as we wrote to you in 2020, polls show that only between 2-3% of Latinos prefer to be called Latinx.
French President Wants to “Piss Off” the Unvaccinated
France has a strict vaccine passport mandate for citizens to participate in normal life, like going to gyms, out to eat, and to public events.
Some people consider the policy a kind of “tough love.” They think public health experts and politicians should treat citizens like children, and punish individuals and businesses for making personal health decisions.
But French President Emmanuel Macron took it a step further.
Speaking about the unvaccinated he said, “I really want to piss them off. And so we will continue to do so, to the bitter end. That’s the strategy.”
Clearly, pissing off the unvaccinated is just another necessary public health intervention to prevent the spread of COVID. Trust the science, and OBEY!
