I think this article is supposed to be a dunk, but it's true.

The communities that Crimo was in online are far more accelerationist than what's talked about in traditional political media, and that's gotta change. They're effectively terror cells with much larger goals.

We've gotta start having bigger conversations about this stuff, about doomerism, about blackpilling, about how extremist cults online interact with everyday politics.

They do not exist in the political binary we're used to. The internet fractured the culture in a million pieces.

We can keep shoving our heads in the sand and wake up every few days to a new mass murder, or we can recognize this new reality of how people get radicalized and try to figure it out.

There is no one immediate prescription, but snarkily writing it off has led us here.

BA.5 variant.

Mask and socially distance, my friends.  Wash your hands.  And get vaccinated if you haven't done so already.  Stop being a selfish dumbass.  It's your duty to yourself and everybody else.

Vaccine for Omicron variants like BA.5 aren't gonna happen until October or so.

And don't be a dick --  definitely wear a mask in commercial environments where employees are masked, e.g., supermarkets, the Post Office.

We never really had a true shutdown.  Stop pretending we did.  Mask and socially distance  And wash your hands.  If the BA.5 variant is as contagious and dangerous as it appears to be [look at England with an increase of 30% hospitalizations in the last week] we just might get the shut down we should have had over two years ago.

Basic public health hygiene measures are really all we got right now -- and that includes vaccines.

Mr. Dallymo is a pirate for a while, although the eyepatch is definitely less swaggery and more medical-y.  But his cataract surgery seems to have gone fine and his vision in that eye is better now than it was this morning (his medical-y eye patch has little holes in it).

Very likely.

It seems Fox News and other RWNJ media are shifting away from Trump goblin to the Florida goblin.

I wouldn't be too surprised if those types are glad Trump is charged with crimes.
