“Welcome To ‘Operation Chokepoint’-The DOJ’s Massive Overreach To Shut Down Lawful Businesses They Don’t Like”
Weasel Zippers — and Geoff B here — were on this two weeks ago. It’s now making its way into the mainstream press (see above), albeit only on the right-wing side. I guess the targeting of private businesses by type, creating problems for them with financing institutions, isn’t something that the major mainstream liberal press finds newsworthy.
Because some old guy somewhere probably said something racist. And OUTRAGE!
The instrumentalities of government, by way of pressure on private industries via the administrative state, are being turned on certain types of “unclean” citizens. And the putative watch dogs of the government don’t much care.
They’d rather spend time defending the stay of a death penalty case, or agitating for amnesty for the noble foreign laborer, than take note of American citizens who are being harassed and whose livelihoods are being threatened by an overreach of staggering proportions.
It’s who they are. It’s what they do.
