I hadn’t heard about them lately, but when I was younger, they were a common subject. One monkey covered its eyes and the caption under it was, “See no evil.” The second one covered its ears and the captions was, “Hear no evil.” The third one had its hands over its mouth with a caption of, “Speak no evil.”
The original concept has little to do with what I have to say today. Yet, it still applies. Obviously, if you have your eyes covered, you will see no evil. If you have your ears covered, in theory, you will hear no evil. Finally, if you keep your mouth covered, you will speak no evil.
The above is true whether or not it is good. For instance, the witness who covers his eyes cannot see the robbery, and hence he is no help to the police in finding the thief. Strangely, many witness act as the monkey with his eyes covered. When the policeman asks if he saw or heard anything, he assumes the position of the third monkey and clams up.
On the other hand, there are those who are intentionally blind. They close their eyes and ears to the crime that occurs right in front of them because they benefit, or they believe they will benefit from the crime.
Four F.I.S.A. false applications were submitted to the court and no one, but no one seems to know how it happened. It is sort of an extension of the three monkeys, “Read no evil.” Maybe we can say they were all doing there imitation of Sergeant Schultz in the old series, Hogan’s Heroes, “I see nothing. I see nothing.” I would guess that the whole of the seventh floor of the FBI is maned by hundreds of clones of Sergeant Schultz. The alternative thought is that they were a bunch of monkeys covering their eyes. You take your pick. Either way, by their own admission, they neither saw, heard or knew anything. I guess we must conclude that they covered their eyes for all four applications.
So now we are in the midst of a post election fog. The democrats have completely destroyed the faith the majority of us had in our election process and all the democrats can say is that they see no evidence of fraud. Of course they don’t. They are assuming the position of the monkey and they are covering their eyes. Guess what. If you close your eyes, cover them and look away, of course they see nothing. (There is no one so blind as those who will not see.)
Some say, there is very little fraud. That’s stupid. Are we supposed to ignore a crime because there is so little of it. Every person who commits fraud in an election should be prosecuted. Moreover, if a pattern develops, we must assume there is someone behind it.
If we find a broad pattern of it, as is now developing, it only stands to reason that the democrats are behind it. All those who disobeyed the law should be investigated and prosecuted, especially if they were sitting in a big luxurious office with his feet propped up at the time of the crime.
It just might help them and others see better during the next election. Of course, there is no need for Biden to do anything wrong. The country is full of people who gladly do it for him, possibly to the point of going to jail.
