In the last few weeks, we watched as self-isolation became a thing, the stock market sank to a bear market, stores and businesses shut down, streets were emptied. All of which were based on a pandemic from China killing people and wrecking the economy.
Now media runs to remote microphones to sensationalize every symptom created by it and to forecast gloom and doom jobless claims and recession. The good old fear-mongering left has lots of ammunition. From bailouts to healthcare, to hoarding on main street.
But what would you expect? You shut down most of the economy and there will be problems. I compare it to turning off a light switch and then complaining it is dark.
We cannot compare it to a regular recession or typical unemployment woes. Yet the media is all over it as if they were one and the same. They are trying hard to fit this crisis into that same box. Statistics cry for context.
Never mind that when you turn the light switch back on it will not be darkness anymore. The problem with the left and this crisis is that they cannot plug in their usual talking points and factoids to color the situation. But that doesn’t stop them from trying. When you turn off part of the economy, there are consequences. We know that.
Beneath it all it is still a biological problem. You know how liberals deal with biological problems; they abort them.
But this one needs to run its course and be defeated, not celebrated as a political weapon to attack Trump. Think of the consequences avoided by taking the actions we did.
Even the root problem in all this is not really COVID –19, it is Democrats still grieving over their loss in 2016. And the cure to that problem is to defeat them again. It must be done for survival sake.
