Frankenstein's Monster









 The end of January has been a regular deluge of icky discovery.  Everyday we learn more about the real intentions of the former twice impeached president and what he did to stay in power.  I've watched center left reporters begin to use words they haven't used before.  More and more, we hear that the XPOTUS tried to get the military to seize the voting machines, and then it was homeland security, then DOJ, and now it seems he tried to get local officials to do the same.

Whereas the norm for an XPOTUS is to retire to his home and give the new guy a real chance to succeed, this UNPOTUS is making speeches to his Make America Great Again Tribe every week now it seems. And the MAGATS still show up to hear the same worn out threats and complaints.  Just last weekend he called for huge demonstrations in DC, and NYC, and Atlanta if his prosecutors did something wrong, like indict him.  Then he proclaimed that if re-elected, he might pardon all the Jan 6 crowd that brought confederate flags, their own feces, and their white hot anger to our most hallowed of national places.

Meanwhile, the MAGAT crowd in general is becoming the main entre for brother Death and his lingering pandemic.  Where at the beginning of the Pandemic, both Rs and Ds  died at about the same rate, that statistic no longer holds now that vaccines are available.  Now, Rs are 3 to 4 times more likely to go meet their maker. This from NPR:

'Since May 2021, people living in counties that voted heavily for Donald Trump during the last presidential election have been nearly three times as likely to die from COVID-19 as those who live in areas that went for now-President Biden. That's according to a new analysis by NPR that examines how political polarization and misinformation are driving a significant share of the deaths in the pandemic.

NPR looked at deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which vaccinations widely became available. People living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.73 times the death rates of those that went for Biden. Counties with an even higher share of the vote for Trump saw higher COVID-19 mortality rates.

In October, the reddest tenth of the country saw death rates that were six times higher than the bluest tenth, according to Charles Gaba, an independent health care analyst who's been tracking partisanship trends during the pandemic and helped to review NPR's methodology. Those numbers have dropped slightly in recent weeks, Gaba says: "It's back down to around 5.5 times higher."

It's pretty simple math actually, with around 90% of D's vaccinated and around 50% of Rs, and with the hospitals pretty much full of the unvaccinated...well, you do the math. And it amounts to something close to mass human sacrifice.  This from Kurt Anderson in the Atlantic:

"For more than a year, we’ve had astoundingly effective vaccines that radically reduce the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19. All of which means that for a long time now the right’s ongoing propaganda campaign against and organized political resistance to vaccination, among other public-health protocols, has been killing many, many Americans for no reasonable, ethically justifiable social purpose.

In other words, what we’ve experienced certainly since the middle of 2021 is literally ritual human sacrifice on a mass scale—the real thing, comparable to the innumerable ghastly historical versions.

Anthropologists define ritual sacrifice as societies’ organized killing of people in order to please supernatural beings and—the unspoken real-world part—to fortify the political and economic power of those societies’ elites. The tradition is right there in the first book of the Bible, when God commands Abraham to prove he loves him by murdering his son, and then only at the last second lets Abraham off the hook. For thousands of years in societies all over the world, small-scale and large-scale human sacrifice was common.

One big difference between then and now is the likelihood of death. In sacrificial spectacles hundreds and thousands of years ago, almost all of those chosen to die died, whether or not they had volunteered, whereas only a fraction of the people now volunteering to die by forgoing vaccinations actually do. It’s the new and improved modern version of mass human sacrifice."

As Ghoulish  and monstrous as this sounds, there is more than a ring of truth here, beyond tinnitus.

And to his credit, the UNPOTUS who may not read,  does count.  And knowing that he barely won with 70,000 votes in 2016 and in all fairness, barely lost with roughly the same number of votes in 2020, probably figures that this modern version of mass human sacrifice might actually make it harder to win in 2024.

And that is why he has come out for vaccines and boosters.

Who of us have not been scared by Frankenstein's monster.

But the real monster is the Dr. himself.

For he would burn down his home and village

to pursue his Promethean pursuit of power.

And he will not be stopped until he is.

It will take a village.
