Bitter Clingers In 2022

Bitter Clingers In 2022, Hanging On To COVID-19
Bitter Clingers In 2022

Remember when that jabbering Kenyan, Obama described half or more of Americans as bitterly clinging to our God and our guns? Well, that was then and this is now. And now, there’s a whole new breed of bitter clingers, ones who are truly deplorable in many, if not all, ways.

These days it’s the Left – specifically, the titularly White Millennials and Gen Zers – who are bitterly clinging to COVID-19 and the Democrat politicians resultant power grab and power trip.

They’re Clinging To Masks Like Safety Blankets

And boy, do they cling to their masks. Even with their own politicians reducing the requirement for mask wearing to suggestions in most places, the Leftists are still wearing them and still vilifying those who are “abiding by what the CDC and those politicians set forth.”

Those masks aren’t just virtual signalling anymore for those sorts. It’s now an identification badge and ingrained in their subculture.

But… As one can see above, that’s not all bad. There are times when one could just think of it as a kink and our new niqabis do look fine… well, what you can see of them. 😉

They’re Clinging To Their Homes Like Hikikomori

And, even more so than their masks, they’re clinging to their homes like Japan’s Hikikomori. They do not want to leave their domicile. They certainly don’t want to go to an office and work like most people used to, though that might have more to do with their sense of entitlement and confusion about capitalism and their places within it than anything else. Like Climate Change and Equity – previously termed Equality – the pandemic may for the majority of them just be another excuse for moving forward with their agenda.

But… I like my new businesswear, and I for damn sure think any and all of the dress shirts I bought for wear to the office look a lot better and serve a higher purpose now than they ever did then. 😆

So, in a case of irony gone wild, we have a whole new crop and version of bitter clingers in 2022, and they bear very little resemblance to the 100s of millions of Americans Obama previously declaimed as being such. But, at least we can be thankful that they do carry with them some varieties of secondary and/or tangential benefits for us all.

12 Years Of Obamacare

ObamaCare Hindenberg
12 Years Of Obamacare

Yesterday marked the 12th anniversary of Obamacare – also mendaciously and ironically known as the Affordable Care Act. But tell me, in the course of those 12 years of Obamacare, have you or anyone you know objectively benefited from it? I know that I haven’t and that nobody I know has. Then, I and most of them are Gen X Whites and not the intended beneficiaries of it.

But, 12 years is a long time, more than long enough to shake out any “birthing pains” in this sweeping piece of federal intrusion into the most personal segment of the private sector. I’d have expected to hear some crowing – or, at least happy, I-Told-You-So mention of – over its successes. But I haven’t heard or read or word.

So, tell me; has 12 years of Obamacare benefited you or anyone?

The Border Then & Now

The Border Then & Now As Reported By The Media

Ah yes; the border, then and now – with then being 2020 and now being 2021. If one makes the mistake of lending unearned credence to the Democrats’ lamestream media, one would likely believe that things are quite different. Of course, one would be wrong to do so. The situation surrounding the quarantining and processing of the hordes of Central and South American invaders is almost exactly the same now as it was then. Indeed, it has changed very little overall since Obama had the “processing centers” created during his tenure in the White House.

No; the only thing that has objectively and significantly changed is who is POTUS. But then, that is sufficient unto itself for the media to completely change their narrative and “reporting” of the border crisis, its fallout, and its human toll. When Donald Trump was POTUS, how his administration handled the illegal aliens was “horrific,” “abominable, and “racist.” But, now that Biden has been installed in the White House, everything his regime does is copacetic or just a sad fact of “properly” handling the influx of “refugees,” even though nothing of substance has changed.

Of course, the media’s behavior now is also essentially the same as it was when Obama’s regime set up the camps at the southern border in the first place. Hellfire! back then, what passes for journalists these days even defended or remained silent upon his regime’s handing unaccompanied minors over to human traffickers!

But then, even this exuberance of bias and lying is the same as always in these degenerate times. The Dems’ propaganda corps reports based upon who is doing something, not what is being done.

Dems On SCOTUS Vacancies

Dems On SCOTUS Vacancies 2016 vs. 2020
Dems On SCOTUS Vacancies 2016 vs. 2020

The one thing Americans can count on the Democrats for is that we can’t count upon them for any consistency or any adherence to long-standing norms, mores, or values, but we can count upon them for viciousness, false equivalencies, and general malfeasance. Their stance upon the respective nominations of Merrick Garland by their boy, Obama in 2016 vs. their stance on President Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett in 2020 is another perfect example of this pernicious behavior.

False Equivalency For the Loss

Democrats, especially those in the Senate, have been quick in their anger to claim that Republican Senators are being hypocritical by having refused to allow Obama’s Garland nomination to move forward while “rushing” President Trump’s Barrett nomination through. But this is just semi-hysterical false equivalency on their part. The underlying situation between the two nominations is fundamentally different, though quite similar on the surface.

That fundamental difference is that, when Obama nominated Garland near-ish the end of his time in the White House, he was not up for reelection; he was term-limited and would definitely be leaving office despite some quasi-hysterical and spurious claims to the contrary.

Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell’s oft willfully misinterpreted statement was true then and non-applicable now.

I believe the overwhelming view of the Republican Conference in the Senate is that this nomination should not be filled, this vacancy should not be filled by this lame duck (emphasis added) president.

The American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue, so let’s give them a voice. Let’s let the American people decide. The Senate will appropriately revisit the matter when it considers the qualifications of the nominee the next president nominates, whoever that might be.

— Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell

Yeah, sane and rational people can understand the difference between a POTUS who can’t serve another term in office and one who might not do so. Democrats and the sorts who vote for them? Not so much.

In other words, the Dems are behaving as we, the People have been forced to accept as the norm for them, stupidly, inconsistently except in their quest for either power or destruction, and despicably.

Some Complaints And Tangential Caveats

Sadly, it’s not all righteousness and roses on our side either. There is some rank hypocrisy and cynical realpolitik being spun out by our politicians this shit show. Despite having a firm and steady grasp of the necessities of realpolitik, some things rankle.

I’m not pleased at all that Mitch McConnell cited the “Biden Rule” in 2016 while blocking Garland nomination, but ignores that he did so now. Then-Senator Joe Biden didn’t want any SCOTUS Judges to confirmed during any Presidential election season, not just during the end of a lame duck’s tenure in office.

It also rankles that the 2nd “reason” commonly cited for the difference in behavior in Senate between Garland’s and Barrett’s nomination is that the Senate majority in 2016 was the opposition party to the POTUS, whereas it isn’t in 2020.

Call me naive and/or delusional, I actually agree with Obama’s statement that, “[confirmation of nominees to the] … Supreme Court is supposed to be above politics, not an extension of politics.” The Senate being in the hands of the “other” party shouldn’t make so much of a difference that it is blithely stated as one of the two reasons for a SCOTUS nomination being blocked.

Record Setters

Some Presidents set historic records – Clinton for Black Imprisonment, Obama for Blacks on Welfare, and President Trump for Black Employment.

Yet is President Trump whom our domestic enemies constant deride and vilify as a racist. 🙄

Then, we should be fair. It’s something that President Trump achieved and the Dems and Likely Dems are crazy. Also, insofar as their politicians are concerned, vilifying our President is Job One. As for their rank and file, they’re our avowed domestic enemies; of course, they ignore or refute their people’s wrongs and reject anything good that comes from America’s President.
