White privilege can take a person far into this country but, as we saw this week, there are certain rules for playing this card. Rule n Â° 1: never recognize that the card really exists. Apparently, North Texas real estate broker Jenna Ryan did not receive the memo when she tweeted a few months after joining the pro-Trump uprising on Jan.6: I’m not going to jail. â¦ I didn’t do anything wrong. âThe 50-year-old might well have escaped jail given her relatively minor offenses – she quickly left the Capitol building because she couldn’t handle the tear gas and apparently did not follow through on her words in a recording made shortly after declaring she was going to âgo to war.â But a federal judge in Washington found her pride and lack of remorse unpleasant, and cited the notoriety she had gained as “one of the faces” of the shameful riot by sentencing her to 60 days behind bars. She lamented on Twitter that PayPal and other payment gateways are thwarting her fundraising attempts for her legal defense. But we’re pretty sure she’ll find a way. After all, she still looks her way.
Even after all of the January 6 rioters are prosecuted, there will still be true believers clinging to QAnon’s final premonitions and praying that Trump’s divine gene will restore him to his rightful throne as King of Kings in the Oval Office. Several hundred of them gathered this week in Dallas, the mecca of American political conspiracy theories, Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. The followers of QAnon are said to have gathered in the belief that Kennedy’s son JFK Jr., who was killed in a plane crash in 1999, would emerge after decades in a mythical hideout. At this point, the QAnon soap opera is so convoluted that even Susan Lucci couldn’t make it believable, but we’re pretty sure it ends the same as all the other episodes (spoiler alert!) – with the Trump’s victory. When JFK Jr. didn’t show up, some vowed to return to Grassy Knoll to watch. Others expected the next reveal to come to a much more likely place, where supernatural phenomena such as immortality and the Fountain of Youth are regularly made flesh: a Rolling Stones concert.
