The political pandemic

Unseen Moon contributing editor Simon Webb takes a look at Kung Flu deaths in England/Wales, one of the places that reacted particularly hysterically to the current pandemic. Masks, lockdowns, arrests, public shaming, etc.

He provides a link to government statistics stretching back to 1990 that show the death rate in many earlier years was even higher than that of 2020, the first year of the pandemic when, if you believed the media and government, dead bodies were all over the place.

However, in those previous years the population did not collapse into bug-eyed horror. Life went on as usual. Well, if you weren’t one of those who died, something we all do in time.

Though the figures he cites are from England and Wales, I suspect the stats in other nations are similar. As Webb says in the video’s conclusion, what caused the air of terror and hysteria?

Is this a political pandemic? Are dark forces at play?

‘Diversity is our strength’*

It’s always a hoot when I can combine one of my favorite fellows, the brilliant Dr. Thomas Sowell, with one of my favorite topics, diversity, or rather the imbecility of promoting diversity, i.e. multiculturalism.

Here, Dr. Sowell addresses the topic of diversity and how almost everyone kowtows to it like a numbskull religion without knowing diddley-squat about how it plays out in real life.

Last October, Moon Contributing Editor Simon Webb provided historical evidence of the horrible effects of promoting multiculturalism. You can read that here.

The black crackers

I come from Cracker roots, a flatland, southwest Georgia sort of Hillbilly. I remember red-clay roads, mule-hauled wagons, segregated buses and schools, Hereford cows in pastures, cotton fields and black laborers who lived in unpainted shacks, and who pulled water from underground with hand-cranked pumps made of cast iron.

I remember all that and more like it was yesterday.

And most of it has vanished now.

Gone With The Wind.

Above is a video from the Thomas Sowell channel. It focuses on us Southerners, both black and white, and the traits we’ve shared. It offers a compelling explanation for today’s ghetto culture.

America is all up in arms these days about race. It’s a Democrat Party-fueled crisis that normal people of all colors are quite content to put behind us, if only it were permitted.

The obsession with blacks nowadays is so pervasive that it enters the realm of absurdity. And it’s not just America. It’s Europe too, especially Great Britain. Moon Contributing Editor Simon Webb below briefly addresses the irrational focus on blacks that he sees across the pond.

The sequel Webb mentions in the above video follows. He addresses the importance of attitude and how it affects your life.

Grey’s diversity

Every afternoon after lunch, we sit in the recliners for a little relax while watching Grey’s Anatomy, a TV series that apparently will never end, on Netflix. It’s in its 16th or 17th season with more to come. For contrast, Friends lasted 10 years, and Seinfeld ran for nine.

It has been accurately noted that neither Friends nor Seinfeld could be produced today due to political correctness and the Democrat/Socialist Party’s Cancel Culture and proclivity for actual violence. So what about Grey’s Anatomy which debuted in the fairly sane year of 2005? It’s astounding what it’s morphed into.

Diversity was not such an obsession in 2005 although the series began with some black characters and an Asian, which was totally realistic. Here at the Hacienda, we’ve just started the 16th season and, although the story lines are quite interesting, the characters and relationships are laughably unbelievable.

It’s well known that Showbiz hysterically promotes interracial couples as the norm and that gays are about 50 percent of the population. Everyone is accustomed to that while we simultaneously roll our eyeballs. But Grey’s Anatomy takes it to stratospheric levels.

About 90 percent of relationships, primarily the patients in Gray+Sloan Memorial, are multiracial, and some are multiracial and simultaneously gay or lesbian. Recently, a black woman with no husband in sight gave birth to a white baby.

Yes, it does get that silly.

The scriptwriters simultaneously and none-too-subtly toss anti-GOP slurs into the show. And there is frequent genuflecting to climate change, gun control, the usual suspects.

No matter. It’s fun to watch, and we’ll see it through, assuming it will ever end. And one must give credit to Ellen Pompeo, the show’s main star, for actually walking the walk. Her real-life husband is black and, of course, her three children are biracial.

Power to ’em, but it’s hardly the norm her show promotes.

While we are relentlessly told these days that multiculturalism and diversity are how things should be in a just world, the fact of the matter is quite the contrary as Simon Webb, one of The Moon’s contributing editors, demonstrated last month right here.
