We don’t know how this got by our spam filter, but it is a propaganda pitch worth a thousand words. That’s because the sender is not some kind of public health whacko; it came to our inbox from the Democratic Party of New York.
What this signifies, of course, is that the Covid pandemic has been politicized to a fare-thee-well. Accordingly, so-called mitigation measures like masking and social distancing have become a form of virtue signalling and political identity labeling.
|He’s been working SO hard to protect all Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.|
|He’s spoken out in favor of masks and social distancing– unlike Trump. He’s the leader we truly need during this public health crisis.|
|That’s why we’re sending Dr. Fauci an ENORMOUS birthday card to let him know how much we appreciate him! We need at least  signatures from New York before we can send off our card, so sign now, David! >>|
To be sure, we didn’t sign the card and couldn’t put our hands on any lumps of coal to send, instead. But the fact that we are being importuned to do so by a political party headed by Gauleiter Cuomo tells you all you need to know.
To wit, the Dems originally seized upon the Covid as a battering ram against the Donald and are now like the proverbial dog who barked loudly and incessantly chased the cars, but upon finally catching one didn’t know what to do.
So like the dog the Dems just keep on barking at the CNN Chryrons, which dutifully rise by the day because they track the accumulation of cases and deaths on a linear basis without any sense of context or the dubious nature of the statistics themselves.
Needless to say, it was Anthony Fauci and his camarilla of malpracticing government doctors who enabled the Dems to chase and bark at the Covid. And to thereby enable the Government Party to seize control of another private sector domain—personal medical care—and turn it into a matter for plenary government intervention and vast fiscal outlays to indemnify workers, businesses and state and local governments for the losses owing to these “public health” interventions.
