Performative Drama — complete with costumes

This morning, Congressional Democrats, all wearing African “kente cloth” around their necks, knelt on the floor ostensibly to honor George Floyd.  Just what we need – elected “leaders” indulging in performative drama.

Look at these fools:

And whose brilliant idea was it to “honor” George Floyd by kneeling?  From an optics perspective, this performative drama seems more honoring of the police officer arrested for Floyd’s death than George Floyd.

Hey, let’s honor the guy who died after someone knelt on him by kneeling!

It’s bad enough all they have is performative drama, but just how stupid would you have to be to stage something so incredibly tone-deaf?

And why in Lucifer’s reach are they wearing those African scarves?

Was George Floyd killed in Ghana?

Was George Floyd African?

Just last week Congressional Democrats excoriated President Trump for standing in front of St. John’s church holding a Bible.

It was a photo-op! They shrieked.

But apparently if you dress like Kunta Kinte and kneel on the floor while the cameras roll, that’s totally serious stuff and not at all a photo-op. Honest. Pinky swear!

This foolery preceded the announcement of “police reform” legislation that is sure to be so terrifically awful it will only make matters worse.

Democrats are experts at concocting a “solution” that compounds problems.

I don’t know.  Maybe I’m just really hurting over the loss of my dog Mary that I have this overwhelming urge to strangle each and every one of those morons with their stupid scarves.

Congress is filled with truly moronic, feckless, and unserious people.

    I laughed hysterically with the Optics fail over kneeling in protest

    Does anyone else feel as if he’s trapped in a massive al fresco lunatic asylum? How will this madness end? When? I am embarrassed to be in the same phylum as these virtue-preening, self-loathing, moronic cowards. I despair. We must turn to prayer.

      And move to a red state not too close to the coasts.
      I used to live near Syracuse.
      I lived in ‘P-Town’ OR since 91. It used to be pretty nice. Time to fly.

    The best part of this inane debasement performance was watching Nutty Nancy show she was unable to get back to her feet without assistance (blamed it on high heels). The footage was comedy gold and couldn’t have been scripted and choreographed more eloquently by the most conservative of directors. One has to wonder about the mental status (or lack thereof) of the masses that automatically pull the lever for this senile harpy and her minions. America has been resilient and withstood many challenges, but will ultimately succumb if the majority of the populous continues to elect these freedom hating Marxists.

      Drunk with power maybe it was the 2 neat martini (ala Bond James Bond) breakfast the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, (D) California had with her minions.

    According to the leftist playbook, how is this not cultural appropriation?

    Academy Awards winners! This is one of THE funniest things ever. Stretch Pelosi can’t get up, Stomach Staple Jerry can’t get down, and the skinny guys living in a hut in Kenya are wondering why they only got paid $.03 per scarf.

    Perhaps it will get interesting if this very sincere behavior continues to increasingly focus attention on the ethnic identity of each individual victim of the state. A trendy dresser may become something even more macabre.

    A politician’s wardrobe storage space requirements probably will also increase

    The only thing this video needs is a laugh track at the very end to show just how laughable it really is.

    Aren’t these kente scarfs from Ghana? Was that even Floyd’s ancestry? What if his fore bearers were from the east coast of Africa, like Kenya? It’s like randomly wearing a kilt or a pair of wooden clogs or lederhosen to honor a person who happens to be white! Hilarious in its gross ignorance.

    If Progs had any self-awareness, they would be conservatives.
    President Trump holding a Bible is bad, Democrats groveling and wearing an appropriated article of clothing to virtue signal, good.
    These people have crossed the Rubicon to complete insanity.
    They, like Cesar, want a dictatorship, simple as that.
    If the past 4 months haven’t made you aware of this, you’re one of them.
    “alea iacta est” The die is cast, will you bow and expose your neck?
