Black Lives Matter protests win medical approval, but not Trump rallies. Is Covid-19 a card-carrying Democrat?
Friday June 19, 2020
As Donald Trump prepares for his first political rally in months, Liberals are hand-wringing over the event, saying it will be a coronavirus “super spreader.” Where were such fears just days ago, amid massive anti-police protests?
Oh, what a difference a Black Lives Matter protest, and a Trump political rally in an election year, can make.
As destructive as the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa protests may have been, they did carry, for one faint moment, a silver lining: America seemed to be getting back to normal, so to speak, as tens of thousands broke quarantine and took to the streets – many without the de-rigueur masks or social distancing – to protest the tragic death of George Floyd through the actions of a white cop.
Amid the ensuing mayhem, Covid-19 was dropped in the back of the media fridge like yesterday’s leftovers as “racism in America” now topped the menu. Suddenly, the joyless days of mask-wearing, social-distancing and shelter-at-home measures looked to be on the wane.
