The self-beclowning of the far left United States Studies Centre

Five days ago: Coronavirus anti-lockdown movement surges after Trump’s ‘Liberate’ tweet.

On April 17, President Donald Trump issued a series of calls on Twitter to “LIBERATE” Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia.

Within three days the number of protests in the country had doubled and nearly 100,000 more Americans had tested positive for coronavirus.

New research from the United States Studies Centre using the Global Database of Emotion, Language and Tone, shows that despite the United States having one of the fastest rates of infection in the world in April, the number of in-person anti-government (federal, state and local) protests in the country surged to a level higher than that reached during 2019…

 
You get the picture. Trump encouraged protesters (all peaceful) whose gatherings will spread the virus and kill people! Author Elliott Brennan, a Research Associate at the Democrat-compliant Studies Centre, even includes some cute graphs to highlight the purported phenomenon. Bad Trump. Bad protesters. Let’s continue …

All the while, progressive activists in the country have been aggressively digitally mobilising while adhering to social distancing measures…

For them, the very presence of protesters on the street at a time like this is outrageous, let alone the president’s support for the protesters.

 
So there you have it. ‘Progressive activists’ would never take to the street at a time like this. And the man with a recently publicised penchant for the digital would never encourage them if they did…

    Leftists follow different rules.
    Left is always right.

    These riots could start another round of the COVID, if a few cases sneak through. So much blood, saliva, manhandling, close contact for hours.
    Shop owners will need to be very particular cleaning up after it all. Police will need to be tested.

    LOL!! This is a thing? For real?

    Psalm 2:1-4

    Why do the nations plan evil together? Why do they make useless plans? The kings of the earth take their stand against the Lord. The rulers of the earth gather together against his anointed king. “Let us break free from their chains,” they say. “Let us throw off their ropes.” The One who sits on his throne in heaven laughs. The Lord makes fun of those rulers and their plans.

    FMD. I laughed out loud. What a time to be alive.

    Just a shame the prophet Eric Blair (AKA George Orwell) didn’t live to see it. He was right on the money about the (attempted) fascist mind control of 2020 — 80 years before it happened.

    Hey.

    “Flattening the Curve” means keeping the infection rate manageable so the healthcare system can keep up with the “unfortunates” while the “Immunization by Infection” protects us geezers from Winnie the Flu. Thanks and “Good Luck”.

    The biggest risk of death comes in a “public hospital” or a “nursing home” controlled by Democrats. Cuomo, BeBlassio and Half-Wit show how it’s done. Just like the Chinese Temporary Hospices.

    Global Database of Emotion, Language and Tone. Yes, but does it have the intellectual rigour of, say, Peace Studies? Remind me, wasn’t Andrew Bolt sanctioned by a quasi-judicial apparatus on the basis of his ‘tone’?

  8. C’mon you blokes, you’re being too harsh.
    We all know “it’s the vibe your honour.”

    Hey love, did you forget the /sarc tag?
    I’ll bet you one ‘sorry’ post that the Wuhan numbers won’t jump because of these riots.
    It seems the WuChiFlu doesn’t like the outdoors. Those rioting young blokes will be asymptomatic.

    Who are Trump supporters calling “far left” or “self beclowning?”

    Has anybody pointed out yet that a Global Database on Emotion, Language and Tone, effectively a thought-policing organisation by its title, is trying to do medical research?

    Ideas and sentiments do not spread diseases.

    Just like correlation of one intensely disliked political leader’s tweets to a recorded spike in ‘positive’ kungflu results does not equal causation of an infetion spike. Good old diligent block data reporting released on specific days does that, no worries at all.

    ‘Who are Trump supporters calling “far left” or “self beclowning?”’
    You. Amongst similar useful idiots.
    There seems to be a real glut of them recently (and not so recently). You can get dozens of bags of them and they’re worth practically zero.

    Database of Emotion, Language & Tone !!?? Still laughing. SADLY… Probably Gov’t funded & likely derived by “LIES” (Leftist Intellectual Elitist Sophists)… People who KNOW they are better than us and ergo what’s best for us.
    The extent to which we disagree = the extent to which we’re morally and intellectually inferior (hence needing their direction to their own agenda)… A cornerstone of the Left and a key reason Trump won the un-winnable.
    Yes the peasants ARE revolting ahahahaah. LIES would prefer there is an IQ and ASSET test before being given a vote.
