Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 04, 2021

When an Arizona school employee called a parent on Thursday to share that his son had come in close contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus, the dad was told his son must stay at home for at least a week.

More from the article...

...Moments after receiving the news, the dad took to his social media to protest the school's quarantine policy, Carruth said. One of the two men who later accompanied the dad to the school posted on Instagram about the situation.

"Apparently Mesquite Elementary thinks they can break the law and act like the covid Gestapo," the man wrote, referencing Nazi Germany's secret police. "We will be headed over there shortly to disagree. Come join us because we won't have this in OUR community!"

Later that morning, the father and his son arrived at the school. The other two men met them in the school's parking lot, Carruth said.

In a live video posted to Instagram, one of the two men who joined the dad told his followers that they were about to "confront this administration" for "breaking the law."...


Perhaps they did not realize that they might actually being the ones breaking the law?

{sigh} I guess it's just too tough a concept for some to grasp, even with images from January 6th still everywhere. What's great is "Jakester" has me plonked, so I can let everyone else know without him finding out!

"If necessary, we'll do a citizen's arrest," the man said before showing off the "law enforcement zip ties" they brought.

I wouldn't have been able to figure that out without reading... /s

Total Idiots.
Confusing quarantine and health regulations with "freedumb!"
Confusing "no mask" with "my child will be in school no matter what!"
Not if that child is COVID positive or has direct contact with someone that has COVID he won't!
And two other men joined him in this 'quest' and neither have kids?
This level of stupid is heard to handle.

From his name and actions, it sounds like he was trying to pull a Gandhi and do the passive resistance thing. Like Gandhi, he got arrested. But unlike Gandhi, he will probably lose his fight.

Oh. Thanks, Snoofy. I was confused.

I was thinking the criminal that's went to the school, brought muscle with him, and threatened to "citizen arrest" the principle and was arrested is just like Ghandi because has a name that sounds like he's from India. Ghandi's from India. Ergo Rambaran is just like Ghandi. They're all the same you know. Zip ties were brought so he could self-arrest himself in protest. The police and everyone else got it all wrong. Makes perfect sense.

Yup. Nailed it. Zip tying yourself ensures passive resistance.

#27 - in fairness, I don't see any of my posts as trolling. I believe a lot of people here think if you disagree with them, you are trolling them. That isn't the case in a forum such as this, is it? Isn't discussion, which often encompasses differences in opinions, encouraged?

I see trolling as what speaksoftly and a few others do: Say something so outrageously stupid ("hardly anyone is interested in Disneyland or Kennedy space Center" a recent example from speaksoftly) they hope to elicit a response.

Or you have the snoofy troll of which he has two flavors: Twist what someone says and/or put words into their mouth and demand a response based on that, or asking endless and pointless questions over and over.

I went to look at all posts just now. I see snoofy with at least a dozen trolls aimed at me, and that's just since this morning! Yav seems to be having a meltdown over my presence. There are several others who keep bringing me up with their stupid name calling and other poster speculation. Hell, a couple of posters are asking about my toes. How weird is that? Another speculated I have COPD. And Danforth mentioned my white privilege. How does he know I'm white? All trolls, of course. I had no idea I was this deeply entrenched in so many minds here.

I guess if I'm guilty of trolling, it would be called passive trolling. In other words, not responding to trolls or taking their bait. But I'm going to continue to ignore them and let them continue to whip themselves into a frenzy and keep talking about me all they want. I don't have to see it.

Trolling is following posters from thread to thread making the posts personal and not the subject matter

Snoofystupid are nothing but that.

True trolls.

The left here don't care for them but they leave them alone so it's tolerated.

I never made that claim. If you want to include yourself in "and others", that's on you, not me. I didn't name you in that paragraph. You are putting words into my mouth and demanding an answer to a question based on that false premise.

Again, thank you for proving my point.

I'm through with this talk of you trolls. You guys troll away if you feel you must. I'm through talking about it.

"Danforth mentioned my white privilege. How does he know I'm white?"

Everyone knows you're white, Goatman.

And the "privilege" part is where you don't have to worry about the law affecting you, so you avoid any mention of its effects on the victims.

OK, so Goatman is white. That wasn't the question, however.

And I say again, Goatman sure lives in a lot of heads here. How long has it been since he stopped posting here?

Passing Vail on the Sunset Limited, it looks so peaceful. The Amtrak stretch between Vail and the J6/Marsh Road/Empirita area is wonderful and isolated from human encroachment in many places.
When I lived and worked in Tucson years ago, a nice motorcycle ride through Vail and Marsh Road was very nice on the FJR.

The guy with zip ties is what we have an abundance of in Arizona. Older guys latching on to vigilantism and is indicative of parts of society that are unaware
of how the legal system works, how law enforcement works and how education works.
When "leaders" figured out how to "reward" those who don't ask questions things got a little bent.
