Beautiful day. Some sun, high fifties. Kinda windy, but still. The mallards have returned to the puddle. They’re probably raising a family so that’s always a good opportunity for a photo or two. As I’ve said this incredibly warm winter is a fantastic thing. Daffodils are out of the ground and spring feels like it’s right around the corner.
Got a good laugh reading about Don Lemon putting his foot in his mouth again. I always enjoy it when two different cohorts of the leftist coalition get into a slap fight. And it’s a good one. A gay black man and two middle aged white women fighting about when a woman is past her prime?
That’s a win-win if I ever heard one. Don is so rankled by having to share the stage with women that he’s primed to start hissing and spitting even before anything is said. I watched the event several times. It’s wonderful. These two women hate Don’s guts and the feeling is obviously mutual.
Some people are hoping he gets fired now. But I hope they’re chained together for as long as possible. The further adventures of this trio has train wreck written all over it. Could Don make history by being the first gay man accused of rape by straight women? I don’t see how but that is the card that these Karens are always hoping to play. Maybe they could come up with some kind of psychic rape or some such thing. They should at least try.
Don will probably accuse them of racism and homophobia. And wouldn’t that be fun. Think of it. CNN would have its own white supremacist, gay bashing correspondents right there on their morning show. They could be denounced by …, well, by everybody! But just think what Joy Reid could do with this. She would summon up visions of KKK marchers coming for Don’s head on a pike. She would literally foam at the mouth. It would be must see tv.
Then Don could sue CNN for a zillion dollars and call it reparations for his modern-day enslavement there at CNN. MSNBC could cover it round the clock and eventually CNN would go out of business and everyone except Don Lemon would be glad. Don unfortunately would be forced to find another gig. Not such an easy thing for him anymore.
So, imagine a world in the future where both Don Lemon and the two shrews he’s battling with were disqualified from appearing on television because they were just too annoying for the majority of viewers. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful world? And the only question we have to ask is how do we get to that world? Well, it seems clear. We need to make it possible for people like that to be mocked as both stupid and unentertaining.
And we’ll know we’re there when Saturday Night Live is competing against something really funny like The Babylon Bee. That’s right, when things that are actually funny are shown on the major media outlets, we’ll know that the woke virus has run its course and burned itself out. And people can say what they really think without fear of being banished to oblivion by the gatekeepers and scolds.
The first tiny steps are happening. Twitter has reinstated the Bee. Hopefully enough people support the Bee by going to their site. And if you’ve got some spare change become a member. That will help.
It’s too bad we can’t stop paying for things like MSNBC and CNN that we don’t like. The cable system doesn’t allow for that, which is a shame. So, all we can do is throw a few bucks at the things that we do like.
Well, that’s what I thought about today. Back to work.
