In a very disturbing video of a County Council meeting, Councilmember Jessica Fitzwater stated that she is a racist. She believes that racism is based on the color of one’s skin. “White people are white supremacists”; she says, especially if they have a higher socio-economic status or hold a position in government.
When will it end? COVID-19 lockdown and restrictions are a grave injustice, which seem to have no end. There is no defensible justification for plunging 34 million Americans into jobless poverty, destroying businesses, and recklessly increasing the tax burden and national debt. None! On a global scale, lockdown polices have marginalized the poor and chronically ill in every country by restricting the movement of goods and services, such as food and healthcare.
Recently, Congressman Cedric Richmond (D) verbally mauled Congressman Matthew Gaetz (R) for being white. Richmond, an African American Harvard educated elite, believes that some people should have no voice in government or debate if they or their children are white! Gaetz, who is white, replied with outrage in defense of himself and his son who is not white. He was quickly silenced and mocked.
Dan Bongino, former NY City police officer and lead Secret Service Agent, testified before the House Judicial Committee demonstrating an understanding of ethics, reason, and strength. Dan’s testimony was powerful against the lunacy to defund the police.

In his essay Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau wrote; “government is best which governs not at all.” Although sometimes criticized as an anarchist, Thoreau was not. He proposed better government whereby the governed embrace responsibility and legislators objectively make decisions of conscience rooted in ethical and moral truths because anything else is an act of narcissism.
In the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd, fake moral preening left-wing agitators cry racism. They have organized and highjacked peaceful protests resulting in destruction of private businesses and private property. In New York they went as far as to deface St Patrick’s Cathedral, destroy storefronts, set fires and force curfews under the guise of First Amendment rights.
During this COVID-19 epidemic, there is a hidden pandemic. A dangerous infection has pervaded American society; it is scientism. Scientism is the notion that science is the best and only objective means, by which a society should determine what is safe or unsafe, right or wrong, normal or abnormal, acceptable or unacceptable.
