I saw that and wondered why Suspicious 0bservers didn't mention it, but maybe I missed it. It's right up their lane.

Another interesting phenomenon of interest is Corona Hailstones. They're world-wide but the [citation needed] I saw pointed to events in Wuhan and Beijing. Maybe this is what they meant by 'It's going to be Biblical'.

Old news. The first two results for 'pigs culled in China':

Jan 16, 2020 China banned the transportation of live pigs from infected provinces and neighboring regions in an unsuccessful bid to contain its outbreaks. It also culled pigs and outlawed the use of kitchen ...

China owns the major pork producers in the United States [where they had virus outbreaks]. They curtailed production but not exports.

In other news, Antifa [allies?] marched against the KKK in downtown Springfield [OR] on Saturday night. I looked for figures, all I could find is ADL and SPLC, but a few thousands in maybe 100+9 chapters fragmented across the South and lower Midwest.

They haven't been in these part (to my knowledge) in a hundred years.

So I lucked out in splitting a 15 lb purchase of bacon with a friend?

Didn't hear about the KKK rally in Springfield. It was a national event? Why would they choose Springfield of all places?

I expect their numbers to increase slightly since that's the effect of increasing polarization.

Tim Pool says it's headed to the suburbs. You saw the couple on the front lawn in their bare beet demonstrating poor muzzle and trigger discipline?

Here's the story from the Register-Guard two days ago: registerguard.com: Black Lives Matter marches in Thurston area, faces counterprotesters in downtown Springfield

This also happened: registerguard.com: Police supporters face off against counter protesters in Springfield — June 23, 2020 at 12:01 am

This also happened:

I think that maybe there was a 9pm curfew [again] in Eugene. If they marched from Thurston to the city hall, that's quite a hike. My TDS-ridden friend likes to call it 'the longest Main Street in the US[of]A'.

So, they are tearing down all statues of dead white people and erecting statues of non-whites?

www.msn.com/: Activists topple pioneer statues on University of Oregon campus

They're tearing statues down. The Pioneer and Pioneer Mother. I'm concerned about the Indian Maiden but I can't find any mentions online. That one was toppled by some random tweaker in the 1990 and they moved it indoors.

But I haven't heard about any of them building anything.

edit: She's hot

Or as Tommy Makem once put it...

Quote:
Lord Nelson stood in pompous state upon his pillar high
And down along O'Connell Street, he cast a wicked eye
He thought how this barbaric race had fought the British crown
Yet they were content to let him stay right here in Dublin town

So remember brave Lord Nelson boys, he had never known defeat
And for his reward, they stuck him up in the middle of O'Connell Street

Well for many years, Lord Nelson stood and no one seemed to care
He'd squint at Dan O'Connell, who was standing right down there
He thought "The Irish like me or they wouldn't let me stay
That is except those blighters that they call the I.R.A."

So remember brave Lord Nelson boys, he had never known defeat
And for his reward, they stuck him up in the middle of O'Connell Street

And then in 1966, on March the seventh day
A bloody great explosion made Lord Nelson rock and sway
He crashed and Dan O'Connell cried in woeful misery
"There are twice as many pigeons now will come and sit on me"

So remember brave lord Nelson boys, he had never known defeat
And for his reward, they blew him up in the middle of O'Connell Street

Yup there's a big nasty stainless spike on O'Connell street just down from the Post office.
