Like we’ve said, the biggest obstacle to a united front in fighting this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak are liberal journalists who hate America and this president. I mean, Trump Derangement Syndrome is more vicious and brutal than its cousin Bush Derangement Syndrome. Who goes after charitable acts during this crisis? Over 230,000 Americans have been infected with the Wuhan virus, with over 5,700 dying from the disease. There is a need for medical masks and Patriots owner Robert Kraft decided to airlift 1 million of them from China on his plane (via WSJ):

At 3:38 a.m. Wednesday morning, the New England Patriots’ team plane departed from an unusual locale: Shenzhen, China. On board the Boeing 767, in the cargo hold that used to be home to Tom Brady’s duffel bags, were 1.2 million N95 masks bound for the U.S.

Video and pictures of the event show workers in masks and full-body suits at Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport loading box after box of the scarce and valuable personal protective equipment onto a red, white and blue plane emblazoned with the Patriots logo and “6X CHAMPIONS.”

The plane was permitted to be on the ground in China for a maximum of three hours, people familiar with the matter said, and the crew was required to stay on the plane while a ground crew loaded the cargo. It took 2 hours and 57 minutes. On Thursday, that plane will land somewhere more familiar: Boston Logan International Airport.

The story of this remarkable delivery, based on documents and interviews with people involved in the operation, is a window into the frenzied scramble by states to acquire life-saving equipment needed to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

Look, I know a lot of people hate the Patriots, especially those long-suffering teams that have been pummeled by the Kraft-Belichick-Brady reign. With Brady now gone, I’m sure the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets—all teams that never really had a quarterback that could match Brady—are seeing opportunity. We’ll see. As a die-hard New York Giants fan, I don’t really carry the intense dislike. First, the Giants beat the Patriots in two Super Bowls. Second, they’re not in my conference.

But this act of charity is commendable, but former ESPN writer Jemele Hill decided to complain about this, tweeting “This is where I remind people that Robert Kraft is friends with Donald Trump and gave to his campaign. It’s incredible the Kraft family is doing this, but hope they understand their money helped empower their friend.”

Yes, Kraft is the reason why Trump got elected. The irony is that tweets are this is partially why Trump won, so Hill should look in the mirror. Second, who politicizes charity in a time of a pandemic? Only charitable giving from those who are liberal and against Trump is considered honorable and worth commending. This is the mind of the American liberal. They will make you care. For those who try to stay out of politics, you’re going to have to pick sides. The Left is going to put a gun to your head because neutrality is almost as bad as being a Republican in their eyes. These Hordes of Mordor will make you care. I mean, it’s almost unbelievable that someone can be this dense. Then again, Hill isn’t one to shy away from controversy. In 2017, she called Trump a white supremacist when she was with ESPN and of course, she has no regrets. Hill’s dislike of Trump is so intense that she peddled what appear to be assassination jokes. The Hill drama at ESPN uncovered multiple stories of liberal bias from the sports journalism giant, where some employees admitted to pretending to be liberal Democrats to avoid getting fired.

It’s truly the most pathetic take you can think of, but that’s liberalism. It’s the most authoritarian and utterly puerile form of politics. No one likes the ‘Well Ackshually’ crowd, which is why I want Hill and others to keep tweeting these takes. It only helps us in 2020. 

How dare Mr. Kraft deliver medical masks to those in need? Only the anti-Trump folk of the world can do such things, except they can’t. You can’t if you’re one brain cell away from being declared mentally disabled. 

Sorry, Charly.
