An email conversation from August of 2020.. “Barb” (not her real name) is a friend from high school and an ER Doctor.. Jim Riley: Freedom Rally and Protest! FOUR LIVE BANDS!

When I was a young teenager, I had the keen sense that you couldn’t make “Commie” jokes or register any alarm about the threat of Communism.

I have had hundreds of exchanges like this one with earnest young people (mostly young ladies; in an earlier age they would have been the severe, sexless sisters of Unitarian missionaries), who insist, without blushing, that you simply cannot be racist towards white people, particularly white men. This appears..
..with a vengeance I borrowed my title from a meme I saw yesterday. It’s perfect. The same people who were worried about Commie Flu hot spots four days ago, the same ones who ridiculed first amendment protesters, the same ones who called church-goers potential Darwin Award winners, seem to have utterly forgotten the horrible danger..
