I’d like to write about GameStop this week — I’d really like to write about it — but I think the final act of this drama, namely what will the government do about it? is the most interesting part of the saga, and therefore I’m going to wait. With that said, I want to point out that the Uniparty is already showing its hand on the future of “the wrong people manipulating the stock market”: Elizabeth Warren, The Progressive
Cherokee Lioness, has already demanded that strong action be taken… against the online forums that allowed retail investors to organize. Oh, you thought she was going to go after the naked-short crowd? I treasure your naivete, dear reader, I really do.
One overlooked aspect of the GameStop craze, beyond the fact that it made one of my racing teammates a multi-millionaire in the course of four days, is that it wiped the nonstop blathering about “insurrection” off the front pages almost everywhere. Yes, dear readers, it was an insurrection, started by
Emmanuel Goldstein Donald Trump and the time machine he used to encourage the “Storming” of the Capital after it began. Ignore the fact that said insurrection was mostly unarmed middle-aged people who walked through an open gap and stormed in orderly fashion between two velvet ropes so they could pose with Nancy Pelosi’s podium — there was a dude with zip ties! They were going to kill Mike Pence! For reals! That’s why it was so critical to shoot unarmed women in the face! The media has officially declared it an insurrection, like your school principal calling a snow day, and that’s what it will always be.
I’m personally not quite ready to let the “insurrection” go, however. In partcular, I want to discuss the most astounding article the New York Times has ever published — one that demonstrates the Uniparty at its most puissant, while simultaneously giving a booster shot to every conspiracy theory you could possibly imagine. Just in case you don’t feel like clicking the jump, I’ll give you a preview: it turns out that there is, in fact, a CEO of Anitfa, and you can get him on a Zoom call.
