How to end a political career

It's really remarkable how so many of these political jackasses don't see any need to obey the restrictions they are attempting to impose on everyone else:

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has issued a lengthy apology after calling on city residents to stay home for Thanksgiving to avoid spreading the coronavirus, before hitching a flight out of the state less than an hour later.

“Pass the potatoes, not Covid,” Hancock said in a tweet on Wednesday morning, urging Denverites to “stay at home as much as you can” and “avoid travel” for the holiday, among other recommendations amid the health crisis.

About 30 minutes after the tweet, however, Hancock boarded a plane bound for Mississippi, where he would spend Thanksgiving with family – directly at odds with the advice dispensed from his Twitter handle just moments earlier – according to a local NBC affiliate.

That's just insultingly obnoxious. It also demonstrates why you shouldn't ever vote for politicians who are parachuted into your locality to rule over you.

I am asking myself how many of these people have been really voted for. If there is vote fraud even in the presidential elections, which are probably the elections which receive the most attention of all elections in this world, shouldn't we expect that local elections are far worse? Also Minneapolis has a guy with special privileges from the East Coast. And there are many other instances like that. I think that fixing voter fraud at all levels of government should be one of Trump's political priorities during his second term. If globalists loose their access to the funds of local administrations, that would hit them very badly.

The important thing to remember is that this isn't an "oopsie". He knew full well what he was saying and what he was doing. He probably laughed about it while one of his staffers wrote the tweet. He probably doesn't actually care that he got caught since he was so careless about covering his tracks.

Our leaders are godless psychopaths.

If there's any hope at all for the Republic, it would be banning all voting machines and mail in/absentee ballots, eliminating same day registration, going back to a paper ballot which is initialed and photographed by judges from both parties, and a Federal Marshall in every precinct to enforce the rules...

The biggest panic-mongers keep getting caught violating their own lockdowns and whipping off the masks as soon as they think the cameras are off. It's clear that they know it's all for show and has nothing to do with public health now, if it ever did.

Here in Illinois we're getting tax-funded ads saying to stay home and celebrate the "holidays" by remote, and some of the ads have hints of Christmas in them, so it's clear that they already intend to double-down on this a month from now.

What's sad is how many ordinary people don't see what's happening because they're too busy enjoying the chance to "pitch in" on something that's being presented as a shared hardship for the common good. It's been a long time since Americans were not only allowed, but encouraged, to "rally around" a cause as a people. You'd probably have to go back to post-9/11 and "support the troops" stuff. So it's scratching an itch for them and making them feel like their great-grandparents buying war bonds and car-pooling to help out in WWII. They're enjoying that too much to look critically at it.

Exactly this. I live in possibly one of the reddest states in the US and somehow this closet fag precious boy governor "scraped buy in elections by less than 2000 votes?" It's hypothetically possible that two major cities are compelling this limp wristed bastard on the rest of the state through the vote, but now I seriously doubt it.

Leftists are concerned primarily with the acquisition of power and the destruction of America, they also understand how to play the long game. I have no belief that they wouldn't try to infiltrate local elections and go one county, district or state at a time to accomplish their goals.

I have a feeling the rot is far deeper and worse than even the most pessimistic cynic would imagine.

Sad but true. Small businesses must die and congregations must be blighted so that the TV-fed masochists can feel part of something bigger than themselves.

The hypocrisy will continue, and it has been constant. We could probably go back and find many instances of this if we wanted to do that.

Their arrogance knows no limits, as the multiple Globalist Cabals race their cars toward their Thelma & Louise moments, they're often giddy.

Another Larp, or CIA anon claims: I'll do a slight paraphrase:

>> Stacy Adams who went f***ing wild and had her pack of ferals and Democrats stuff ballots all over Atlanta and she personally trucked in a shipment of over 200,000 ballots to the Fulton County and Dekalb County voting precincts. This dumb b***h did this on her own and is one of the main reasons everyone got f***ed. This imbecile did not realize a video was made documenting the unloading of the ballots...

The thing is that this is completely 'in character' for someone like Stacy, and many of these over-the-top arrogant fools. Very believable. There have been several rumors of her pending arrest going around.

They will remain self-righteous and arrogant even at GITMO. The top people must be eliminated, at the very least.

Considering how nearly all lockdown governors and congresscritters have been caught done this in the last half-year, about the only reasonable conclusion is that these deep state footsoldiers are being blackmailed into painting themselves as repellent as humanly possible.

Well, that attitude would perhaps end a political career in a serious country. Here in Spain it's just our bread and butter. The Ministry of Education did exactly the same, and her "apology" was that "she had an appointment with her doctor", on a weekend! Insulting.

To me it reads as more evidence that they do these things on purpose to rub it in people's faces, and test the reaction. As they "get away with it" the conclusion is: people have resigned themselves to the idea that we have a class-based society, and they are in a lower class who must follow different rules. We're being trained.

Blogger Sicilian Switchblade November 26, 2020 10:48 AM  

I'm amazed people have gone along with this nonsense as long as they have. Hell, we're what 10-11 months into "2 weeks to flatten the curve."
Anyone who can't see this as anything other than a sh*t test on the peasants is retarded or blind.

It's a great time to stand strong and prosper or lay down and die. I personally decided about three days into this stupidity to not play along at all with the stay at home orders, mask mandate b.s. and business has never been better.
Right now it is still relatively cheap to stand up to the bully. I don't wear any face diaper in stores despite "mandates" I never have any problems to speak of. If the occasional karen tries to stare holes in me while looking at my actual uncovered face I just look them up and down a couple times and shake my head, then top it off with a psssh. Reverse the shame tactic. It works well.

These people who are pushing this are total hypocrites, retards, and cowards.

What we allow is what will continue.

I visited Denver a few years ago and was shocked at all the homeless people mulling about downtown. It seems leftist-run cities always come with tons of homeless and poor sanitation. It’s hard to say anymore if that is a byproduct of their policies or plain intentional as if they enjoy seeing the destitution from their cushy, expensive downtown offices.

Likewise. I owe them nothing and I refuse to accept them as my peers. I've never meet or read about one that comes close to my intelligence and accomplishments, ergo they are not my equals in any way, shape, or form.

They are so used to operate with total impunity that they don´t even try to fake any pretence of being "public servants".

I lean towards option b because the combination of incompetence, arrogance and Carte Blanche from the "Justice" dep seem to be the one that fit the nomenclature of the politburo.

I expect a crap load of Republicans to be implicated in this election steal, and the money grab from the CCP. Georgia's Governor and AG are merely the start. With Sidney out there and General Flynn (who really does know where all the bodies are buried), along with Ezra and Christopher controlling the Special Ops, it's about to get very interesting.

How many Republicans were in on this attempted steal? I believe that it's all been captured and will come out. Exposer is important.

There are loads of people in the US and Western political, academic, and media establishments that are on the CCP payroll.

NJ's "Govermin" Murphy was caught basically doing the same. Eating out with more than six people, no masks in sight. Some classless Jersey girls called him out on it, which was fine, but "media" sites all framed it as him being "attacked" or "molested" while just trying to peacefully have a meal. I'm so tired of these idiots.

1. His was a non-apology apology. Whenever a nominally contrite politician couches the "apology" in the form of "I apologize to the residents of Denver who see my decision as conflicting ... " The statement is immediately qualified by reference to "those who see" - implying that their "perceptions" are being apologized for, not his actions. It is per se insincere.
2. He's black, he's dem, it's Denver. He will suffer no consequences.

Alberta is under a state of emergency and has banned social gatherings with fines of $1000. None have been fined that I know of. To be clear the definition of social gathering is not a family. People are allowed to have social gatherings outside, but only household occupants are allowed to use the bathroom!

Considering a lot of the people in Denver have been imported to vote for this guy, I'd expect nothing less. The invaders and the outsider they put in power laugh at the natives.

One of the dirty little secrets around here is that Covidism enforcement is mainly against whites. There is relatively little enforcement anywhere you have large numbers of non-whites or against non-white owned businesses. Easiest places to walk into without masks? Inner city mini-marts that don't even bother with signs or all the idiotic floor markings.
