Rampant xenophobic paranoia


Jessica Williams: “They need to call it what it is!!! Terrorism!”
Washington State Department of Agriculture: “USDA has no indication that it is anything other than a ‘brushing’ scam.”
Stacie Turner: “Biowarfare via CCP that could cross germinate with our crops and contaminate the food supply?”
Washington State Department of Agriculture: “More likely a ‘brushing’ scam.”
Patty Stroe: “Read the article, that’s what the USDA believes, that the seeds are to sabotage our agriculture.”
Washington State Department of Agriculture: “That is NOT what the article says. USDA believes this could be a ‘brushing’ scam.”
Petulisa Havili-Wolf: “… disguised biological or chemical attack?”
Washington State Department of Agriculture: “USDA doesn’t have any evidence that it is anything other than a ‘brushing scam.’”

In fact the author suggests that the mystery is even more mundane and less mysterious than a scam, let alone a triffid invasion

i read that the other day. im not really a fan of demystification though.

never thought about it before but this is a significant difference between us. my natural inclination is usually to try and demystify.

There are always so many ways of counting and ranking these things. Before the Euros it was pointed out that Ronaldo was in striking distance of Platini's total of 9 goals at the European Cup finals. IT seemed likely that Ronaldo would surpass that total (and he duly did) - but straight away the anti-Ronaldo contingent started saying "Well it is a much lesser achievement cos Platini got all his goals in one tournament whereas this is the 5th finals Ronaldo has played in" which is true up to a point, but you might say "If it's so easy to do it that way then why didn't Platini simply maintain his level of fitness and ability for decades and help his country quality for the finals five times in a row and thus build up an indestructible goals total?" which example I suppose I am using to demonstrate that certain groups of people - Messi fans, Americans - will always find ways to denigrate other peoples' achievements to the benefit of their own so there's certainly no need to let hem change the way things are counted on top of that or we'll never hear the end of it.
