Our Rights Have Been Trashed (For Our Own Good)

Rhode Island Hunting New Yorkers

You no longer have the right to free movement. As if you hadn’t noticed this already.

Rhode Island plans to send the National Guard out to knock door-to-door in an attempt to hunt down anyone who has arrived in the tiny state from New York City during the coronavirus pandemic. State police, meanwhile, have begun pulling over cars with New York state plates.

Gov. Gina Raimondo said anyone traveling there from New York will be ordered to undergo a 14-day quarantine and could face fines or even jail time if they’re found to not comply.

“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Raimondo said at a news conference Friday. “That risk is called New York City.”

She isn’t wrong to be seriously concerned. She should also be hunting down Massachussets people, as Boston is another outbreak epicenter. Hey, let’s jail folks from New Hampshire, because Manchester.

How about the whole country walls off Rhode Island, all 10 square blocks of it, and leaves them to rot? Let the uppity fuckers die. No loss to the rest of us. How Dare They?™

I’m really getting chapped about this fascist power grab game of one-upmanship going on. Oh you did this in your state? Hold my beer. Watch us do something even more repressive.

Does any of this even help? Maybe it does, but these acts could be destroying the union that is the USA. Certainly giving it a beating.

Rhode Island, which had some 162 confirmed cases by late Friday compared to New York State’s total of more than 44,000, joined a host of other municipalities and states trying bar entry to New Yorkers living in the epicenter of the US’ coronavirus outbreak.

The Hamptons, counties north of the city [ Long Island,, east of NYC ], and governors in Florida, Maryland, Texas and South Carolina have all also ordered New Yorkers to keep out or undergo mandatory two-week quarantines.

Cuomo said he was opposed to such restrictions, at least within the state.

“I don’t like it socially or culturally,” Cuomo said during a radio appearance Friday on WAMC. “I don’t like what it says about us as one state, one family. Also, I don’t believe it’s medically justified.”

In Rhode Island, Raimondo maintained she’s within her emergency powers to impose the aggressive measures and said she had consulted with state lawyers.

“I know it’s unusual. I know it’s extreme and I know some people disagree with it,” she said.

“If you want to seek refuge in Rhode Island, you must be quarantined.”

If Cuomo is saying this isn’t justified, it probably is. He and DeBlasio have proven yet again what level of idiots they really are. But that’s almost beside the point.

Yeah yeah, the public good. Want to know who owns most of the homes in the Hamptons? People from New York City. So now it’s “illegal” for people to stay in their own houses if they have more than one?

This is so wrong. It screams Statist Opportunism. Is the only way to save America to destroy it? Are we My Lai village writ large? How much trampling can we take? And even more worrying, will it become the new normal when this shit is finally over? Will the jackboots stay on the feet because every sparrow that falls will be another emergency? When does government ever cede power except at gunpoint?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
