BILLINGSGATE POST: This is right out of the classic skit done years ago by comedians Abbott and Costello. Who’s on first?
Looking Glass War 101. By reversing the letters, BLM becomes MLB. Black Lives Matter becomes Major League Baseball. To the casual observer, it might appear that this was done by someone with a twisted mind. Of course it was!
But who was on first? Did wacko New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio make a boo-boo? Was the “Black Lives Matter” mural painted outside Trump Tower a colossal mistake? With both the Yankees and Mets starting their belated seasons this week, should the mural have read, “Major League Baseball?”
For infamy, this could be worse than the Black Sox Scandal. In 1919, Shoeless Joe Jackson and some of his Chicago White Sox teammates conspired to fix the World Series. It wasn’t called the White Sox Scandal. Obviously, the word “Black” was substituted to make the affair more ominous.
