    Newly Mustachioed Bill De Blasio Unveils Special Red Armbands For Police Enforcing Lockdown
    [​IMG]
    NEW YORK, NY—Having let his facial hair grow freely for several weeks, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio held a press conference this morning where he unveiled special red armbands for police enforcing the city's quarantine on the Jewish community.

    "The red armband represents our commitment to public health," he said. "City workers and police who want to show their loyalty to making sure undesirable groups are not breaking quarantine will be asked to wear the bands for easy identification."

    "The third glorious era of New York will reign triumphant!" he cried, banging on his lectern. "Together we can reclaim the glories of our once-great kingdom!"

    The mayor also suggesting some kind of camp that could concentrate on the Jews, as well as maybe some way to identify them in public so people could keep away from "undesirable" contact with them. "We could take them to the camp on the subway trains."

    Some are saying the move represents bad optics for the city's mayor. But he didn't seem to see any issue with the bands, saying they simply helped identify the special squadrons of police that would focus on the Jewish community. "We'll call them the S.S. for short," he said.

    He also announced his plans to invade Poland.

    No link. Did you craft this yourself? Pretty clever if you did.

    Thanks but no, I can't take credit. I recently found this: The Babylon Bee | Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire.
    Hilarious stuff.

    I also tried their podcast. Christian group. You really don't see much of that on the website but the one episode I tried was loaded with it, so I took a pass on that.

    I'd like to pull the plug on all celebrities taking political stances who turn the screw. Not sure I can think of one center or center right celeb who is doing so, the list from the left is pretty long and that tells a story in itself, whores.

    I think I'm learning to consider that the entirety of my life I have been a subconscious wanker. If only they had got to me earlier, I may have given a toss back then and casting back as far as I can I know I did more so then and then I got sick of them in numbers.

    I wish we could face this race issue with it all out on the table, no one shying or denying a condition we all share but as we deny it or hush it, it never gets what it needs and that is honesty and acceptance which could result in a certain forgiveness but in my mind that difference is set to be ever present in this form and is ready to disperse in to similar forms to maintain pressure on those at the head of the table.

    I know I am bias and it never was a choice, It was created by normal society and day to day living.

    That is impervious to this fluid movement.

    NYC Mayor Sued For Being Too Tough On Rioters

    This was a headline from the Free Beacon that just stopped me in my tracks. We’ve been covering all manner of stories out of New York City over the course of the pandemic and the rioting and skyrocketing violent crime rates. But the one thing I never expected to see was a lawsuit against Mayor Bill de Blasio for being “too harsh” on the rioters. And yet that’s exactly what the New York Civil Liberties Union is claiming as they seek to take Hizzoner to court. According to the group, Police used excessive force against “peaceful protesters” and nearly a dozen of them are lining up as plaintiffs in the suit, demanding compensation.
    My dad, a WW2 veteran, used to have a saying that he would invoke regularly. “Bad things happen in war.” While the things taking place in the streets of the Big Apple aren’t technically “war,” the situation isn’t all that different. When the mob gets out of control and blocks the streets, the police have to clear them out of the way. Does this mean that some people who may not have been physically engaged in violence at that particular moment could have been caught up in the action and hit with pepper spray, tear gas or batons? I’m sure it’s possible. But when you join the ranks of those who are defying and shoving the police, well… bad things happen.

    As the New York Post recently reminded us, however, the police have been facing long odds and violence in these engagements themselves. As of the end of September, 472 officers have been injured through “shootings, stabbings, and vehicular and explosive attacks.” They’ve been met with Molotov cocktails on numerous occasions. In some of the larger demonstrations that turned into riots, the cops have been totally outnumbered.

    Taking all of these facts into consideration, it was almost inevitable that a couple of people who weren’t actually attacking the police were going to get caught up in the scrum. Looking on the bright side, this situation never devolved to the point where the cops just began randomly firing live ammo into the crowds.

    The thing that really makes this suit seem ridiculous is the fact that it’s only been in the last month or so that the NYPD began seriously cracking down on some of the more violent “protests.” Prior to that, the major complaint that everyone had was that the mobs were basically allowed to run wild, burning and looting with few if any arrests being made. If you wanted to sue Mayor de Blasio over something, I would have suggested that his failure to keep the streets safe and being too soft on the rioters would have been more appropriate.

    There’s no official word from City Hall yet about the lawsuit. If they get around the mounting a defense we’ll be sure to bring you an update.

    Nah. Just kicking off the holiday season early
    Two Birds With One Stone: Man Protests Racial Injustice, Completes Christmas Shopping In One Trip

    Two Birds With One Stone: Man Protests Racial Injustice, Completes Christmas Shopping In One Trip
    [​IMG]
    PHILADELPHIA, PA—Protests over racial injustice erupted in Philly, and not a moment too soon: local man Michael Parsons was getting behind on his Christmas shopping.

    "Well, this is convenient," he said as he saw people were protesting the shooting of a man who was just one knife away from being unarmed. He grabbed his balaclava, a sign reading "INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE," and a shopping cart, and headed out the door.

    "Justice for whoever it was!" he cried as he made a stop at Best Buy and picked up an iPad for his mom and all six Star Wars movies on Blu-ray for his brother. "And you know what? I'm gonna treat myself," he added as he threw a few Xbox games into his cart for himself.


    "Uh, police are bad or whatever!" he quickly added as he made his way to Target for some stocking stuffers.

    According to sources, Parsons is hoping there's another police shooting sometime before Christmas, as he forgot to pick up an HDMI cable.

    I think you meant to say there will be rioting if Trump wins.

    Personally, I think there will be riots next week regardless of the election outcome.
