The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has taken again its absurd, meaningless, hyperbolic Emmy that it awarded then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo for “leadership” throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Literally each transfer Cuomo made as governor of New York was silly: medieval lockdowns that statistically don’t work, faculty closures that alienate youngsters from improvement, and a choice to lock aged nursing dwelling sufferers away to die unceremonious deaths had been simply a few of his ‘accomplishments’ in 2020. He even wrote and printed a sick, masturbatory e-book celebrating his failures as triumphs; an apparent cash-grab that reeked of subversion and dysfunction, à la O.J. Simpson’s twisted e-book If I Did It.
Except on this case, Cuomo actually did do it, and was happy with it. The sycophantic media and their bootlicking contingency of readers made an idol out of Cuomo, remodeling him from sleazy profession politician right into a literal god of the solar for which they gleefully paid tribute like lemmings working over a cliff. Like all leftist narratives, the deification of Cuomo absolutely felt empowering within the second to his supporters, however finally ended as simply one other brick within the wall of enslavement. New Yorkers have much less freedom than ever earlier than (hiya, vaccine passports) and no one accountable however themselves. They selected their savior, worshipped him as such, and are left with not solely egg on their face however necessary masks on them, too.
Everyone concerned within the liberal orgy will declare ignorance in relation to Cuomo’s dealings with ladies; actually, they’ll even use the about-face as a cause to respect them and their purity of intent much more now that the god has been made to appear to be a idiot. Even if that’s true, and Cuomo’s bullying and sexual aggression was a well-kept secret, the truth that the lemmings held him in excessive sufficient regard to provide him a tv award regardless of his utter failings as a political chief fingers all of them as both outright liars or morons of the best diploma.
Just take heed to Bruce L. Paisner, International Academy president and CEO, kiss the governor’s proverbial ring again when it was modern to take action.
“The Governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,” Paisner mentioned. “People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”
No kidding, Paisner, it’s fairly apparent Cuomo had plot traces: each lie he advised and choice he made fed into this improbable notion of him, whereas in fact he was the villain your entire time. Apparently leisure executives can spot an incredible story on the web page, however not once they, themselves, are taking part in the a part of dunce. Perhaps to them the loss of life of Grandma, the shortcoming to go to family members within the hospital, or the misplaced schooling of a technology are simply plot factors and climaxes. Or, as is extra doubtless the case, they’re all simply solely filled with shit.
