CNN: ObamaBidengate Is A Distraction From Bat Soup Virus

I told you yesterday “The thing is, once Democrats start trotting out the distraction/diversion talking points, they know they are in trouble. We’ve quickly moved from stage 1: “Ignore the story – pretend it is not happening, or deflect like crazy,” to stage 6: “Whine about the discussion of the topic, proclaiming that it means nothing, and why aren’t we talking about X? This is usually the point where Liberals/progressives truly understand how bad the issue really is for them, typically when even the NY Times cannot ignore it, so, now they want to have an in-depth discussion on the point of the Iraq War, which you have had 1,000 times, but, they strangely have never had.””

CNN’s Oliver Darcy trots it out

Trump and right-wing media distract from bad virus news with alternate reality

More than 82,000 Americans have died of coronavirus as of Tuesday. A top model now forecasts that 147,000 Americans will lose their lives by August. Millions are out of work. And the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, is warning that reopening the country too early could have serious consequences.

Which is all to say that the news is not good for President Trump. Death and despair threaten to swallow his reelection hopes. A Tuesday CNN poll found that most Americans (54%) believe the US gov’t is doing a poor job preventing the spread of the virus. And a majority (52%) still think the worst is on the horizon.

Major news organizations are reflecting this grim reality with clear-eyed reporting, bold headlines, and historic front pages. So what is Trump, Fox News, and the right-wing media machine doing? They’re constructing a separate alternate reality to keep their fans distracted from the news and outraged at the long-standing villains in the right-wing media universe. The general idea is that President Obama and others improperly used the levers of gov’t to conspire against Trump to win the 2016 election, with the “deep-state” later working to kneecap him when he was in office.

Distraction! Apparently, we aren’t allowed to talk about anything else. Darcy spins away

It’s called “OBAMAGATE.” And as Tim Miller explained in his superb piece, the key tenets of the theory do not make much sense: “The main ones being (a) when spelled out all in one place it is absurd on its face and (b) if anything, the supposed deep-staters’ actions in 2016 served to help Donald Trump politically, particularly in the final weeks of the election when the FBI reopened the investigation into their supposedly preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton and then absolved Donald Trump of the actions they were supposedly framing him of in the New York Times.”

Of course, that’s not really the way it worked. But, see, this is all a distraction from things like

By Darcy’s reckonning, running articles under “black in America” would be a distraction

Heck, for the last one, wouldn’t the whole style section be a distraction? Same with sports and entertainment? The more Leftists run this stuff the more people will want to know the truth.

Just wait till they start trotting out the race card, which should be about next week.

    I told everyone all along the objective of making a virus into a plague was to hurt Trump (and that’s what Trump meant when he said the “next hoax”). Piling up bodies by shipping the elderly to where they are most vulnerable was the brainchild of the Cuomo/Wolf conspiracy. They wanted big, big numbers cause they would be Trump’s fault when their co-conspirators in the Fake News Media were done with the “facts” and the players were finished cooking the books on ACTUAL deaths CAUSED by Red Chinee Flu.

    The economic shutdown by Democrat governors and mayors an all the blue states assured the total destruction of the booming Trump economy. The left couldn’t go into an election with a 2% UE rate they’d be murdered. So, in true Alinsky fashion they destroyed the economy just in time to blame Trump for what they did. Death, economic destruction, the very stuff needed for a group of America haters to take power.

    Plus they had the opportunity to create an entirely new marginalized class of people carved out of the middle class: he Non-Essential Americans. A perfect scapegoat for the Nazi’s running the Deep State, Fake News, Academia and Hollywood. If one is non-essential then one is expendable! Hell, it’s a neat repeat of Germany without the yellow stars. Yet!

    Here’s an interesting tid-bit I done run across just sittin’ here bein’ non-essential:

    Trump 2020 If he loses what will the leftists do with the Deplorable Non-essentials?
