Bad News Monday

Bad News #1: Our first winter storm of the week rolled in late last night, just in time to ruin our viewing of the Super Blood Wolf Moon. So I rely on you to post your own magnificent pictures. It won’t be the same thing but I will attempt to extract your sense of amazement.

Bad News #2: If you are a Catholic be advised that the left has just put a target on your back – a term that is unacceptable only when Sarah Palin or some other alt-right hater uses it.

And all evidence indicates this is yet another preemptive spoiling campaign aimed at Amy Coney Barrett’s likely nomination to the Supreme Court in the equally likely event that RBG is unable to continue her duties. It is just a twist on the application of the classic Alinsky rule they used (in conjunction with others) against Brett Kavanaugh: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The fact they need to take down an entire religion in order to get it to work, well, more the glory!

The attack on innocent young men from Covington Catholic is just one among many that have preceded and will follow on.

And the fact that the media got this story so egregiously wrong should indicate alone that it was conducted with extreme malice. As of late last night the only apologies I’ve seen are from rightwing sources who piled on a bit to easily. Still waiting to hear from the networks.

Nor is it just the media, the official representatives of the Socialist Democrats in Congress have taken up the banner as well. For example, Mazie Hirono along with Kamala Harris have determined that the Knights of Columbus are for all intents and purposes a terrorist group:

(The question) appeared to reference the recent controversy that erupted following a CNA report that Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) questioned judicial nominee Brian Buescher about his membership in the Knights of Columbus, which they described as an organization with “extreme views” that are “opposed to marriage equality” and “women’s reproductive rights.”

So there’s the Dems’ current strategy: paint Catholicism as a dog whistle for homophobia and misogyny. Only now they’ve decided to throw racism into the mix as well, because that never hurts. Besides, it’s very easy to manufacture.

All you need do is level the allegation. And that’s something the Left has been cultivating for a very long time.
