Insanity Wrap #62: Is That a Pipe Bomb in Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy to Arrest Me?

@MrOlmos

Insanity Wrap needs to know: What should the New York Times say about COVID-19 that shows Trump was right all along about travel?

Answer: Orange Man Bad, hater.

Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap.

  • This is CNN: Chris Cuomo lies for Andrew Cuomo even though Andrew was already busy lying for himself
  • The Media-Democrat love that dare not speak its name
  • Another George Carlin bit becomes real

And so much more.

Shall we begin?

This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006

In a sane world, Chris Cuomo would have been laughed out of any serious work in the public eye long before he had a chance to start providing televised lip service to his own, granny-killing brother.

While Insanity Wrap tries not to judge, the love between Chris Wallace and Joe Biden ought to be forbidden.

Your Fundamentally Dishonest Media at Work

Odds are your friends on Facebook and Twitter won’t read past the headline.

The press knows this and writes the headlines accordingly.

But, hey, anything for a click, even if it does tear at the country’s tattered social fabric.

We Had Been Assured That the Science Was Settled

Ski, Party, Seed a Pandemic: The Travel Rules That Let Covid-19 Take Flight

You don’t say:

The World Health Organization said open borders would help fight disease. Experts, and a global treaty, emphatically agreed. But the scientific evidence was never behind them.

And:

The restrictions have humbled powerful nations like the United States, whose citizens are no longer welcome across most of the world. Even so, President Trump has called his travel restrictions “the biggest decision we made so far” and attacked the W.H.O.’s early advice on borders as “disastrous.”

Let’s see if Insanity Wrap understands this correctly: Trump was right all along, but the New York Times still found a way to work in an anti-Trump—and even anti-American—spin anyway.

Please, make our morning Bloody Mary a double.

The Left Projects, Always

If Insanity Wrap is allowed to paraphrase Jeff Foxworthy: If you’re throwing pipe bombs, you might be a leftist.

It is our experience — our indirect experience, thank goodness — that police generally don’t throw pipe bombs.

They carry sidearms and nightsticks and sometimes more.

“Stop, or I’ll throw a pipe bomb in your general direction! Hold still!” is not something one generally hears a police officer say, not even on TV.

So you’ll perhaps forgive us when we say “BS!” to any BLM-antifa bomb-thrower’s claim that they’re getting bombs thrown at them.

The Craziest Person in the World (Today)

Prof calls for all cops to be strangled, complains about doxxing and death threats afterward

Don’t do this:

A professor who called for every “last cop” to be strangled says he is now dealing with death threats, vandalism and doxxing attempts.

Earlier this month, Midwestern State University philosophy professor Nathan Jun wrote on a Facebook thread “I want the entire world to burn until the last cop is strangled with the intestines of the last capitalist, who is strangled in turn with the intestines of the last politician.”

Insanity Wrap will never support threats, vandalism, or doxxing. Not even against people who say they want “the entire world to burn” until a whole bunch of people they don’t like are brutally murdered.

But this bloody-minded philosophy professor needs a lesson of his own.

“Freedom of expression” does not mean, nor does it even imply, freedom from criticism of your stupid expressions.

Trump Is Not a White Supremacist

Of course, the gold standard for this kind of thing was established years ago by Insanity Wrap’s political hero, Ronald Reagan.

You tell ’em, Mr. Reagan.

Here’s Another Damn Thing We’re Supposed to Be Concerned About

Subway Bread Is Not Bread

Irish court rules Subway bread is not bread

The law butts its nose into everything, eventually:

Under Ireland’s Value-Added Tax Act of 1972 it cannot even be defined as a staple food, according to the Irish Independent, because it contains too much sugar.

The ruling came after an appeal brought before the court by Subway franchisee Bookfinders Ltd. The case rested on whether the bread for Subway’s sandwiches counts as a staple food and therefore is VAT-exempt.

The bread’s sugar content – five times the qualifying limit under the act – means that it falls outside of the legal definition of a staple food. The ruling included white and wholegrain bread. The definition serves to differentiate bread from other baked goods.

Or as Claire Coleman quipped: “Essentially, to summarise, Subway ‘bread’ is actually cake.”

So then a Subway sandwich would be… meatcake.

Now where has Insanity Wrap heard that before?

On a long enough timeline, every George Carlin bit becomes reality.

One More Thing…

Joe Biden Said Shut Up
(Seen on Facebook.)

That’s a Wrap for today.

Come back tomorrow for another Insanity Wrap…

…assuming we make it that long.
