You Reap What You Sow

A Texas doctor says a 30-year-old patient who thought the coronavirus was a hoax has died after attending a “COVID party.”

“One of the things that was heart-wrenching that he said to his nurse was, ‘You know, I think I made a mistake,’ and this young man went to a COVID party,” Dr. Jane Appleby, the chief medical officer at Methodist Hospital, told KSAT. “He didn’t really believe. He thought the disease was a hoax. He thought he was young and he was invincible and wouldn’t get affected by the disease.”

According to Appleby, a “COVID party” is a gathering held by someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. People attend to see who gets infected first.

“They’ll have a party to invite their friends over to see if they can beat the disease,” Appleby explained.

People will never learn.

If These Young People are the Future of America, Just Close the Country Down

These kids are fundamentally idiotic.

Students in Tuscaloosa, Ala., who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 reportedly have been going to parties in an attempt to see who else will catch the virus. That’s what a city council member told ABC News Wednesday.

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry reportedly said that students had organized COVID-19 parties in an attempt to infect each other on purpose.

“They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense,” McKinstry told ABC News. “They’re intentionally doing it.”

The Tuscaloosa council issued a mandatory facemask rule Tuesday night after Fire Chief Randy Smith told members that an investigation uncovered students who knew they were positive were still partying.

What The…. Jan Joosten… Pedophile….

This SHOCKS me- and I can’t be shocked by much!

On June 18, 2020, Jan Joosten was sentenced by the Saverne (Bas-Rhin) criminal court to one year in prison for holding thousands of child pornography videos and images.

Via Wikipedia.  Regrettably.  The story in the French press is behind a paywall.  Via Dr. Annette Yoshiko Reed on the twitter.

Ghastly.  Ιησους.  I’ve spent time with Joosten at various conferences.  I never had a clue.  I feel like I’ve been punched in the gut.

UPDATE: Candida Moss tweeted a photo of the story so you can read it yourself:

UPDATE 2: The Guardian has picked up the story.

UPDATE 3: Christ Church, Oxford, has issued a terse statement.

Of Course He’s A Member of the Klan! Who Else Would He Be?

Over the weekend, a Virginia man was arrested for driving his truck into a crowd of protesters. It has now been revealed that the accused, Harry H. Rogers, is also the head of the Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.

WTVR News reported Monday that Rogers was charged by police with attempted malicious wounding (a felony), destruction of property (also a felony), and assault and battery (a misdemeanor) after the incident. When he was arrested, Rogers confessed to officers he is the president of the Ku Klux Klan in the state and claimed to be the highest-ranking member of the Klan that is not in prison.

I hope he enjoys prison.  And by enjoys, I mean doesn’t at all have a pleasant time.

Total Depravity: The College Racists Edition

I don’t understand the level of stupidity that’s operative in the minds of college kids these days.  Are they so oblivious of the fact that whatever they post on social media will be seen?  Or do they think being racist is so cool everyone will find them charming?

Either way, they shouldn’t be in college until they can act with a level of maturity befitting a college student.

Students, administrators and graduates of two Georgia schools expressed their outrage Friday after white, female students posted racist comments and images on their social media pages.

Wesleyan College on Thursday expelled a student for posting statements such as “Bear down on these (expletives),” using a racial slur to demean African Americans.

Georgia Southern University wrote a message Friday condemning “inappropriate and offensive social media posts” after a white woman, identified on social media as a student, posted a picture of herself in blackface with the caption “to quote rosa parks. nah.”

Idiocy.  And if these two girls are Christians, they have lots of repenting to do.

The Cops in Buffalo All Think Shoving an Old Man Down Is Acceptable

That’s why all 57 of their Brownshirt shock troops resigned in protest of the suspension of two of them.

An entire unit of the Buffalo Police Department resigned from their assignments Friday after two officers were suspended amid outcry over video showing officers shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground, according to the Buffalo News and other media outlets.

All 57 of the members of the department’s Emergency Response Team resigned from the unit, which responds to riots and other crowd control situations, according to the outlets. The Emergency Response Team members have not quit the police department, but have stepped down from the tactical unit, the Buffalo News reported.

“Our position is these officers were simply following orders from Deputy Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia to clear the square,” said Buffalo Police Benevolent Association President John Evans. “It doesn’t specify clear the square of men, 50 and under or 15 to 40. They were simply doing their job. I don’t know how much contact was made. He did slip in my estimation. He fell backwards.”

They aren’t resigning because they are honorable and are protesting the tactics of the squad, they are resigning because they object to two of their own being held accountable.

‘And the Lord God Regretted That He Had Made Humanity…’

A Knox County teaching assistant was charged with aggravated assault and two others were charged with child abuse after a nonverbal student was special needs was allegedly attacked on a school bus.

According to arrest reports, Knox County School bus 164 was stopped on Beaverwood Drive on December 2, 2019 when teaching assistant Robert Wilson, 40, hit the student with his elbow and punched the student in the face. The student suffered a broken nose and a chipped tooth.  Wilson was charged with felony aggravated assault and failure to report child abuse.

Another teaching assistant Elena Banks, 38, was charged with failure to report child abuse. Arrest reports say Banks was sitting directly behind the student who was assaulted on the bus and did not report the assault to anyone.  Bus driver Jeannie Hurst, 55, was also charged with failure to report child abuse.

VILE.  Assaulting a child is bad enough.  But assaulting a special needs child and causing significant harm… that’s unforgiveable.

Total Depravity: The Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin Edition

A video went viral of a journalist in Santa Monica, California, holding a power tool near a building destroyed by looters and posing for an Instagram photo before quickly jumping back in a car to drive away. Online commenters were angry that the woman appeared to be pretending to help for the sake of a photo op.

The woman’s identity was confirmed by New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz as Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin, an intern with the Washington Examiner.

In the video, after posing with the construction worker, she hands him back his power tool and says, “Thank you so much” before walking away. A bystander can be heard saying afterward, referring to the young man standing on the sidewalk taking her photo, “Boyfriends of Instagram!”

Ms Moriarty has quickly deleted her twitter account.  How shocking…  People will do anything for instagram likes.  And that’s depraved.

She Should Have Been Fired, And She Was

The ‘call the cops on the people of color just because they’re around me’ nonsense has to stop, and the only way it will is if these racists are fired when they are exposed.  The only language racists comprehend is the language of money.

video of a woman in Central Park calling New York police on a black man who says he asked her to leash her dog has gone viral, and the woman has been fired from her job with Franklin Templeton.

The incident occurred Monday in the Ramble, a wooded area of Central Park where dogs are required to be on leashes.

Christian Cooper, who is black, said he was bird-watching in the area when he saw Amy Cooper, who is white, with her dog. Christian Cooper wrote on Facebook that the dog was going “through the plantings.” He approached the woman and asked that she leash the animal, he said.

In the video, Amy Cooper refused and called 911, telling the operator that “there is an African American man. I am in Central Park. He is recording me and threatening myself and my dog.” At one point, Cooper shouts to the operator, “Please send the cops immediately.”

The video has been viewed more than 20 million times on Twitter, shared by Christian Cooper’s sister Melody.

The video quickly drew reactions online and Amy Cooper has since apologized. Her employer, asset management firm Franklin Templeton, placed her on administrative leave before she was fired Tuesday.

Good.

There’s Something Wrong With Florida

Very wrong.

A scientist who created a dashboard for monitoring Florida’s rising number of COVID-19 cases said she’s been fired for refusing to manipulate the data.

Rebekah Jones was the manager of the Geographic Information System team at Florida’s Department of Health. She helped create a data portal that for months has provided easily accessible and detailed information on COVID-19 cases broken down by ZIP code. The Florida COVID-19 dashboard has been praised by researchers in the state and by Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator.

Last week, Jones notified public health researchers in an email that she’d been removed from the project. “As a word of caution,” she wrote, “I would not expect the new team to continue the same level of accessibility and transparency that I made central to the process during the first two months. After all, my commitment to both is largely (arguably entirely) the reason I am no longer managing it.”

Jones now says she’s been fired from the state Department of Health. In a statement to CBS12 News in West Palm Beach, Fla., Jones said her dismissal came after she refused to “manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”

Sick.

‘Cancel Culture’: An Observation

The so called ‘cancel culture’ is populated by the same people who, as children, threw temper tantrums in the middle of the grocery store if they didn’t get the sugar based cereal they wanted.  And their mothers gave in, thus teaching them that if they whined long enough and loud enough it didn’t matter, they got what they wished.

And now, as ‘adults’, they want the entire world to listen to their tantrums too and give them what they want, or else…

Just don’t.  Someone in a brat’s life needs to tell it no.

The Devil Lives Down in Georgia…

A young child was killed at a campsite in Bartow County after apparently playing with a pistol on Saturday night, according to Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap.

Millsap said deputies were summoned to campsite on Chitwood Cove in the Wilderness Camp Road area just after 8:30 p.m. after receiving reports of a young child shot.

According to a release from Bartow County officials, the child had been taken from the campsite prior to the arrival of law enforcement by persons at the scene. They were met on another roadway by law enforcement and EMS.

The release said that rescue units evaluated the child and transported the child to an area hospital. The child was pronounced dead at the hospital.

After an initial investigation, 47-year-old Kimberly Anne Roberts and 50-year-old James Phillip Lillie, were both arrested and taken to the Bartow County Jail. Roberts is the child’s grandmother, and Lillie has no known relationship with the child.

According to the sheriff’s office, Roberts is being held on a felony probation violation and Lillie was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The investigation remains underway. Both Roberts and Lillie face additional charges, according to the sheriff’s office said. More information will be released once the new charges are filed in the case.

A felon with a gun let’s a child get access to it…   The Devil lives down in Georgia.

When No One Cares Enough to Check

An elderly man who had been ‘too scared to go outside for food’ collapsed in London after becoming malnourished, the head of a charity told MPs.

Caroline Abrahams, the chief executive of Age UK, told the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee that some people aged over 70 are so “terrified of catching the virus” that they are too afraid to go out for food.

The Telegraph revealed today that the latest modelling suggests as few as 24 people a day are being infected with coronavirus each day in the capital. There are around nine million people in the UK aged over 70 who have been advised to strictly follow social distancing guidelines.

Has he no one in his life who cares if he is ok?  If so, why didn’t they look in on him?  If not, how utterly sad it that?

What a world.

Those ‘Open Up Now’ Wisconsin Protesters? Yeah, Lots of them Now have COVID-19

Deservedly and unsurprisingly.

Seventy-two individuals who tested positive for Covid-19 in Wisconsin recently attended a “large-gathering” before their diagnosis, according to a report.

According to The Progressive, the state’s Department of Health Services (DHS) confirmed that they had gathered tracing data on a number of people who had contracted the virus.

“We were able to pull some limited data—out of 1,986 cases with onset/diagnosis on or after 4/26, there were seventy-two cases who reported attending a large gathering,” DHS spokesperson Jennifer Miller was quoted as saying in an email to The Progressive. 

When you’re careless and arrogant and stupid, bad things happen to you.  You reap what you sow.

When Cops Kill Black Women While they Sleep, They’ve Stopped Being Cops and Become Klan Members

Attorneys for the family of Breonna Taylor call her shooting death by Louisville police an “execution.” Taylor was asleep in her apartment in March when police burst into her home to serve a search warrant. The case is gaining national attention, and this week civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump announced he had been hired by Taylor’s family.

Crump has represented the families of other black shooting victims, including Trayvon Martin and, currently, Ahmaud Arbery, whose alleged shooters in Georgia were arrested last week after video of the February incident became public. Like Taylor, Martin and Arbery were unarmed when they were shot and killed. Crump called Arbery’s murder a lynching.

On Wednesday, he called Taylor’s death an execution.

“You can’t walk while black. With Ahmaud, you can’t jog while black. Driving while black,” Crump said during a news conference. “But Breonna Taylor was sleeping while black in the sanctity of her own home.”

He is representing Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, in a lawsuit against three Louisville Metro Police Department officers that was filed last month in Louisville. Local attorneys Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker are also representing Palmer.

“Breonna Taylor was shot at least eight times by the officers’ gunfire and died as a result. Breonna had posed no threat to the officers and did nothing to deserve to die at their hands,” reads the complaint, which was filed by Aguiar and Baker.

They are asking for a jury trial as well as compensatory and punitive damages.

VILE!  Something is terribly wrong with the way many police are behaving.

Paul Manafort has Been Released from Prison and Sent Home

Proving, as though proof were needed, that there is no justice system in America.

Paul Manafort, the disgraced former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, was released from prison on Wednesday and will serve out the rest of his sentence under home confinement.

Lawyers for Manafort, who is serving a seven-year sentence for charges that emerged from special counsel Robert Mueller’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, had argued their client was at high risk from the coronavirus due to his age and underlying health issues.

ABC News, the first to report Manafort’s release, said the 71-year-old was let go from the FCI Loretto prison in Pennsylvania on Wednesday morning. He will be confined to his apartment in northern Virginia.

Full sentences in horrible conditions during a pandemic are just for poor people, not rich ones.  This is disgusting.

North Carolina is as Racist as Georgia

Approximately 15 white men, including an individual who appeared to be an officer, gathered on the front porch of a home belonging to a black family in Rocky Point, North Carolina on Sunday night demanding entrance. At least two of the men were allegedly armed.

The group was operating under the belief that an individual named Josiah, a student at Topsail High School in Pender County, was a resident at the home. Allegedly, the men wanted to speak to Josiah concerning the whereabouts of a girl that had gone missing that evening. Among the members of the alleged group were the girl’s father and an off-duty bailiff for the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Department.

However, the group had the wrong house. Living in the home were Dameon Shephard, a high school senior at Laney High School in New Hanover County, and his mother. Although allegedly being told repeatedly that no one named Josiah lived at that address, one of the men put his foot in the door and demanded to be let inside. The Shephards’ lawn had a sign with Dameon’s name on it, celebrating his upcoming graduation from high school.

“As soon as I open the door I see these guys in front of me and they’re holding guns and it looks like there’s one in a police uniform,” Shephard told reporters on Thursday.

“They were all civilians,” said Shephard’s mother, Monica, on Thursday. “The only one that was in a uniform was the one that was in the center of the door. Everyone else was civilians.”

Two members of the group allegedly held firearms, including an assault rifle and a shotgun.

Neighbors called the Pender County Sheriff’s Department (PCSD) and many of the individuals allegedly in the group spoke with the Shephard family outside. However, no investigation was carried out.

According to a letter sent by Wilmington attorney Jim Lea, III to District Attorney Benjamin David, the arrival of PCSD Captain B.A. Sanders yielded the same result. After Sanders spoke with the deputies and the Shephard family, “no arrests were made, no charges were filed, and no action was taken by the Pender County Sheriff’s Department despite the repeated demands and request of not only of the Shephards, but the entire neighborhood.”

The Shephards are one of only two black families in the neighborhood, which is predominantly white.

“We can’t have vigilante groups just wandering around our county, intimidating people with guns,” Lea told the Port City Daily on Thursday. “Nor can we have our police officers in a role that they shouldn’t be in joining this group.”

All of them should be in prison for violating civil rights.  These people are totally depraved racist imbeciles.
