I’m sort of at a loss on how to write this piece.
I had originally planned to do something on one of the most famous modern fantasy authors, Mercedes Lackey, getting kicked out of the SFWA, along with her husband Larry Dixon (who apparently got kicked out for no better reason than being married to the “evil person”) on the eve of her getting the lifetime achievement award by that same organization, for committing the sin of calling someone a “colored person” instead of a “Person of color.”
I understand the NAACP is now in hiding while they quickly change their name to the NAAPOC.
It’s doubly ironic, because Misty was writing with gay protagonists and “WOKE” themes long before any of the nobodies that make up the governing body of the Science Fiction Writer’s Association were BORN, and because the complaint didn’t come from the person she was speaking of, who said they didn’t care at all, when asked, but from some stupid bint in the audience.
Of course, she has spent a fair amount of time in the mob baying for the blood of conservatives for “wrong-think” so the fact that the mob has now turned on her is, well, unsurprising, if you know anything about communist movements, and make no mistake the current “woke” crowd are watermelons through and through (green on the outside, red on the inside.)
I was going to mention something about the recent SCOTUS decision on delaying arbitration making you liable for a strait up lawsuit.
I was also going to cover Biden’s thrice and future flub on what we will do if China invades Taiwan. As well as the XinJiang Police Files (see here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/extra/85qihtvw6e/the-faces-from-chinas-uyghur-detention-camps ) and the recent thwarting of an attempt to assassinate former President G. W. Bush.
Then there’s this IDIOT: https://truthpress.news/news/democratic-socialist-candidate-calls-for-people-to-break-into-homes/ who is running for Congress from Washington state, (I would like to apologize to the nation for this bint) and wants a million people to break into and squat on any unoccupied houses they find, as well as demanding a $30 an hour minimum wage.
And I was going to say something about Memorial Day, as a reminder that this day is not about us the living, the veterans, or the patriots, but about those “who will not grow old as we grow old.”
Of course, all of that became irrelevant yesterday when a sick son of a bitch decided to shoot up a school.
The children who died are the saddest part of this whole thing, of course. But nearly as sad is the way this all went down, and our behavior as a nation as a result.
