Seriously, this is fucking psychotic. Not necessarily surprising from this bunch, but still stunning. I mean, we are getting close to eugenics/genocide territory here. If we're not in the same neighborhood, we're in the same postal code. These fuckers were going to let a deadly infectious disease burn through blue states and then blame Democratic governors for the deaths in order to gain a political advantage so they could hold on to power. I'd go so far as to say that this is some evil shit, not to mention stupid, given how spectacularly it failed.Animavore wrote: ↑Fri Jul 31, 2020 4:25 pmJesus fuck!
https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020/07 ... w2U8oOmbOAMost troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy,” said the expert.
That logic may have swayed Kushner. “It was very clear that Jared was ultimately the decision maker as to what [plan] was going to come out,” the expert said.
So my question is this: does ANYONE think an Obama administration would have done something like this? Well, we know he wouldn't have done this because there were several outbreaks during his presidency and they always put science before politics as any sane, decent person would do. But can you fucking imagine how absolutely BERSERK the Republican half of the country would have gone if Obama had done something like this? There would have been impeachment, investigations, commissions, hearings, trials, the whole nine yards, and god knows what else. But Trump does it and no one bats an eyelid. Just another Thursday. Shrug. This is seriously fucked.
So I just want people to remember the Kushner covid strategy the next time bothsidesing rears its absurd head. They are NOT all the same...
