I remember emailing UKTV about the hijacking of the voice-overs in their programme trailers by illiterate, cretinous, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting moronnials. I received a reply to the effect that UKTV regretted that I didn't enjoy their "voice artists" but urged me to "have a great day" regardless. I responded that the use of the euphemism "voice artists" was hilariously, Orwellianly moronic: these grotesque ejaculators had neither voice nor artistry. Of course I didn't hear back; not even "you have a nice day."

That's how it is now: this "brave o'erhanging firmament" has indeed been turned into a "foul and pestilent congregation of vapours" wherein Shakespeare is dismissed as a Dead White Male and to quote him will soon be a hate crime.

Still, the Woke-Fascists' chickens are quickly coming home to roost. Perhaps the humans in our midst, "noble in reason" and "infinite in faculty," the "beauty of the world, the paragon of animals" will rediscover and reaffirm their humanity in time:

Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.

Council members pressed police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents' calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. "That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.” ...

The Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides, as well as property crimes and arson, according to Minnesota Public Radio. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than those slain in all of last year.

Arradondo said about 100 officers have left the department or have taken a leave of absence since the start of the year, which is more than double the typical number of officers who either step down from the department or are inactive that year, MPR reported.

In July, the council took several steps toward dismantling the city's police department, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and reallocate it toward the health department to hire "violence interrupters" who are intended to defuse potentially violent situations.
