Lunatic fringe: ReOpenNC brings out the worst in our society

Jordan Green of Triad City Beat was on location:

“If you saw your father or your son breathing their last breath — we’re the ones there holding their hands,” Cynthia J. said. “If you had a family member who was sick with COVID-19, you’d think more about how your actions affected the whole.” Across the street, Stephen Wagner called out sarcastically: “Appreciate you nurses coming out to support us,” throwing in a caustic aside about financial challenges hospitals have faced by as they’ve canceled elective surgeries to free up beds and protective gear for COVID-19 patients.

“Too many people died for our freedoms for us to give them up for germs and lack of toilet paper,” he said. He had another pithy declaration: “It’s normal for humans to get sick. Of the sick ones, the weak ones die. That’s just life.”

Not surprised this idiot doesn't know the difference between a germ and a virus, just as I'm not surprised he fails to grasp the irony of his backhand reference to evolution. But he was (by far) not the only idiot in attendance, Dan Bishop was there too:

Part-time Congressman, full-time Jerk

If any new employee missed this much work in the private sector, he'd be fired with a vengeance:

From Sep 2019 to Oct 2019, Bishop missed 26 of 78 roll call votes, which is 33.3%. This is much worse than the median of 2.1% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving.

After the embarrassing catastrophe that was the NC-09 Fraudfest, mainstream media should be watching Bishop like a hawk. By the time he missed his 10th appearance, it should have been plastered all over the front pages. But instead, we get crickets. I expect to see this covered by the middle of next week, and if it isn't, I might let Evil Steve loose on the Internet...

Senator Dan Bishop helped create Alt-Right platform GAB

And he needs to answer some questions about that synagogue massacre:

A Republican politician is an investor in Gab, the now-shuttered social media network used by the Pittsburgh synagogue gunman, DailyMail.com can disclose. Dan Bishop, a state senator in North Carolina who is up for re-election next week, boasted in August 2017 that he had backed the site because he was 'about done with SF [San Francisco] thought police tech giants.'

Bishop is one of the only known investors in the tech startup, which had billed itself as 'a free speech platform' for anyone who wanted to join.

And one of the many questions he needs to answer is: How much money did you earn by capitalizing on hatred and anti-Semitism? After what happened in Pittsburgh, we're just going to go ahead and call that blood money. The synagogue shooter (Robert Bowers) not only announced his intent on GAB, he has a history of posting anti-Semitic rants on there, including the personal information of Jews:
