The Brevard County “Gestapo.”

Wayne Ivey is NOT the head of the “Gestapo.”

(EDITOR’S NOTE: We have been told that there might be some confusion as to whether we are saying that the Brevard County Deputies and therefore Wayne Ivey are or acted like the “Gestapo.” We want to make this clear because even though we say it in this post, some people are missing what we are saying. Claiming that Brevard County Deputies in their arrest of Janice Crisp were somehow, as she claims, “the Gestapo” is not only wrong, it is an insult to those who suffered at the hands of the real Gestapo during the Nazi Germany era. Crisp’s claim is factually wrong and morally reprehensible. Hopefully this clears up any comprehension issues.)

When we went back and reviewed the footage of the arrest of Janice Crisp and associate prior to a Brevard School Board meeting, we realized that we had missed something. Something which is important in our eyes.

As Crisp is being led away, she calls the officers the “Gestapo.”

From here on out, Crisp has lost the discussion and debate on masking or whatever point she was trying to make. One theoretical reason is what is called “Godwin’s law:”

This Was Inevitable.

Two people planning to speak against the Brevard Public Schools mask mandate were arrested and removed from the property before a Tuesday School Board meeting.

Janice Crisp, a conservative activist who staged a mask burning protest at the last School Board meeting, and an unidentified man were led away from the district headquarters in Viera in handcuffs before the 5:30 meeting and put in Brevard County Sheriff’s Office vehicles.

Did You Ever Think That Some Government Workers Are Idiots?

This is a tweet from the National Park Service:

So Ford’s Theater wants to be the site of a second Lincoln assassination?

Yes, we do put Lincoln up on a pedestal and rightfully so.

Underwater In Palm Bay.

The last few years have not been kind to the Palm Bay Utilities Division, specifically the water and sewage part.

The City’s contractor which was processing online payments was hacked not once but twice. The City sent a notice out saying to contact the contractor for possible reimbursement of costs related to the hack such as new checks, etc. That number went to a call center who would take your name and phone number and that was the end of it. The City was saying “contact the vendor,” but the vendor was not answering the phone.

The City changed the vendor for online payments and they are having issues with that as well. A recent notice came out saying that bills viewed online may be late in appearing, but graciously the City would not charge you if your payment for a bill you could not see was late.

How kind of them.

An Incident In New Zealand That May Portend Actions In The US.

Ahamed Aathill Mohamed Samsudeen did not need a gun to attack and injure 7 people in a New Zealand grocery store.

All he needed was a knife.

Within a minute after the start of his attack, Samsudeen was shot and killed by Auckland police.

(At one point in time, New Zealand allowed concealed carry laws for citizens, but after the despicable and horrific Christchurch Mosque shooting in 2019, the New Zealand government demanded citizens turn in weapons it deemed were “military style” or were “semi-automatic.” Such laws left law abiding citizens unable to defend themselves and require police intervention when someone is being attacked with a deadly weapon.)

The old adage of “when seconds count, the police are minutes away” doesn’t seem to apply in this case because the police were there so fast.

There’s a reason for that quick response time:

Donut Operator Reviews Brevard County Shooting.

One of the youtube channels we visit is run by a guy who calls himself “Donut Operator.” He is a former police officer and often comments on the actions of the police. Like most police channels that we have seen, he is pro-police, but he also calls out police when they do something that is wrong.

You may remember that two Brevard County Deputy Sheriffs were involved in a shooting where they were attacked during what appears to be a regular traffic stop. When Deputy Tyler Thoman tries to have Paris Wilder step out of a car, Wilder comes out with a gun and starts shooting. His shots wounds Deputy Brian Potters, who was shot in the leg and also suffered facial injuries from Wilder attacking him from behind.

Beer And The First Amendment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We apologize for some of the language used in this post. Normally, we don’t allow terms like this in this space, but try as we might, we could not think of a way that would allow us to convey the story without using the language. Long time readers know this is not what we do normally, but in this case, we felt we had to.

Flying Dog Brewery is a craft beer brewery out of Frederick, Maryland.

(The beer is not available in Florida, so this is not us pushing the brand.)

To put it politely, Flying Dog has a history of naming their beers with “interesting” names. (One such beer is called “Raging Bitch.”)

Their labels are created by illustrator Ralph Steadman. He too has a “unique” style.

Opposing Racism Doesn’t Require Promoting Victimhood.

A new video and article from John Stossel:

Are you a racist?

All white people are, says White Fragility author Robin DiAngelo.

Race explains everything, says bestselling How to Be an Antiracist author Ibram X. Kendi. “Every policy is either racist or anti-racist.”
