Election Day is long past so let’s indulge in a little election reflection. The results are not certified in enough places for the election result to be resolved. Maybe the reported election results are dishonest. It appears they are.
Two and a half years ago, I realized something. GraniteGrok.com more or less owned the internet space on the right in New Hampshire, or should. With a bit of effort and some donations from readers to retool the footprint, we did that. We claimed the space as ours.
Way back in 2017 (it seems almost ancient history now) I wrote this “editorial” for another blog. I don’t claim to be prescient, but it was obvious even back then that “social media platforms” were out of control.
Two incidents involving the same individual(s) were recorded as hate crimes. Racial slurs were followed by acts of assault. The problem? The perpetrators in both cases were black, and the different victims were white. According to a student group, that’s not a hate crime.
Both Facebook and Twitter do have us in their sights – and our traffic has taken hits because of that as they have throttled us. No matter, I’ve always maintained that I don’t write for the hits (although I’m happy to see them). I write about what either amuses or concerns me.
As predicted, they are proving the line “Democrats with bylines.” If you are one of them ideologically (I swear I’m gonna wear out that word) you’re a hero. If you are Conservative, you hurt the ones they love (er, themselves). To wit:
Seattle’s Pinko mayor has finally ordered the police to take back the Capital Hill Oligarchs Playground (CHOP). Despite media reports to the contrary (peaceful protest, rainbows, drum circles, and happiness), the place is a crime-riddled wasteland.
Concord has another controversy to chew on but not the one they think. The School board just appointed an interim Superintendent, Kathleen Murphy, after the Howie Leung incident knocked the previous one from her perch (Look here to get caught up). But the temp is said to have baggage of their own.
Ed Morrissey makes what should appear to any sane or sensible person to be the actual point of this graph released by PEW (pew-pew) Research. They claim that their data and this awesome graph they have proves something. It does, just not what they think.
