With Pandemic Ending, People Who Yell At Others To Wear Masks In Danger Of Never Feeling Important Again

From The Babylon Bee:

U.S.—There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic as vaccine distribution continues to increase, and soon the whole ordeal will be over. While most people are celebrating this development, it has filled others with worry — especially those who have taken it upon themselves to yell at people who aren’t wearing masks. They have a sinking feeling they’re never going to feel important ever again.

“I’ve never felt so alive as when I’ve gotten in people’s faces, saying, ‘Where’s your mask?! Where’s your mask?!’” said Karen Hughes. “I’m basically stopping murderers. And, let’s face it, with my lack of skills and annoying personality, this is the highlight of my life.”

“This has given me purpose and meaning,” agreed Karen Boyd. “Usually, I’m looked at as some sort of witch when I scream at kids, but now I have a reason backed by the CDC. I’m a hero. But when the pandemic is over, I’ll go back to being a crazy lady.”

“I don’t think I have the ability to do anything else,” said Bob “Karen” Shelton. “What else can I yell at people about? ‘Wear sunscreen?!’ I dunno. And I was just getting so good at mask policing. I was yelling at people for only wearing one mask. ‘Why don’t you have two?!’ I‘d shout. But those days are ending.”

The mask-yellers do have some hope that masks will become a habit during flu season, which at least gives them an annual reason to harass random passersby.

Curing Their Sickness – For Our Sake, by Eric Peters

Analyzing the psychosis that is Covid hysteria, from Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

How to cure weaponized hypochondria?

The first step is not to pretend it isn’t by ceding to it the slightest legitimacy. It must be unmasked for the illness it is – which cannot happen as long as people who aren’t ill pretend those who are ill aren’t.

Very.

This is false compassion – and for that reason dangerous and those who insist upon it are either incredibly misguided or something much worse. It is cruel to entertain harmful delusions – both as regards the deluded and as regards those who aren’t but enable the perpetuation of the delusion – and of mass psychosis – by participating in reality denial. Authentic kindness is best expressed by unwinding the delusion; by helping the deluded person to shed it by not being complicit in it and thereby helping them to realize that their fears are skewed and exaggerated; that things are ok  . . . and that they will be ok.

How to know whether you’re dealing with someone who is ill? Diagnosis is easy. All you have to do is look around. If you see a “mask” you are seeing illness.

Or complicity with it.

Does the patient insist on you pretending you are sick in the absence of any evidence that you are?

Is the patient obsessed with sickness even though they aren’t sick?

Are they unreasonable?

If you ask them to explain how a person who isn’t sick can spread sickness and they respond with anger, you are probably dealing with a very sick person. If they don’t at least pause when presented with a contrary fact or contradicting statements by the “experts”  – e.g., “masks don’t work” and then “wear two masks” – it is likely there is something badly wrong.

Mindless Mask Mandates Likely Do More Harm Than Good, by Joseph Mercola

Nobody has explained how breathing your own respiratory waste is good for you. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

In breathless tones, NBC News recently reported1 the existence of a business where mask wearing isn’t enforced. In the Naples, Florida, grocery store, hardly anyone wears a mask. The store’s owner, who the news station claimed “is known for his conservative and often controversial viewpoints,” told a reporter he’s never worn a mask in his life and never will.

The store does have a mask policy posted, but video shows that many customers are fine with not wearing one. There is a mask mandate in Naples, but Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has issued a ruling that makes enforcement of the rule difficult, NBC said.

The irony of the whole thing is that while the media claims mask mandates are based on science and will “save lives,” this simply isn’t true. Science is actually being ignored wholesale and recommendations are primarily pushed based on emotional justifications and triggers. If science were actually followed, universal mask wearing by healthy people would not — indeed could not — be recommended.

Diaper Report 1/30/21, by Eric Peters

Why do you need a vaccine if you’ve already had Covid-19? From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

I’ve just been informed that my 84-year-old mom is about to be Anointed with the Holy Needle, which is interesting given she has already had the thing the Needle purportedly prevents about a month ago and thus has no need of the Anointing.

For any medical reason.

She caught “the virus” – and recovered from it after a week of flu-like symptoms, including a cough and some congestion. They tested her – the wardens of the facility wherein she is imprisoned for the crime of being elderly and – the irony is sickening – to “keep her safe” from “the virus.” As by not allowing her to see anyone except the people within the prison.

No family or friends, forever amen.

And she tested positive.

 

I – her son – have yet to get sick.

She – imprisoned – did.

But nevermind these inconvenient incongruities. Including this business of wearing Facial Codpieces that haven’t “stopped the spread” – notwithstanding almost everyone who has gotten sick was wearing one – because almost everyone is wearing one.

Will the Truth on COVID Restrictions Really Prevail? by Scott Atlas

The truth is none of the restrictions have worked, but don’t expect any mainstream media headlines shouting it out. From Scott Atlas at realclearpolitics.com:

Will the Truth on COVID Restrictions Really Prevail?
(Andree Kehn/Sun Journal via AP)

The consequences of the SARS2 coronavirus pandemic and its management have been enormous. Over 400,000 American deaths have been attributed to the virus; more will certainly follow.  Even after almost a year, the pandemic still paralyzes our country. Despite all efforts, there has been an undeniable failure to stop cases from rapidly escalating and preventing hospitalizations and death. 

Here’s the reality — almost all states and major cities, with a handful of exceptions, have implemented severe restrictions for many months, including closures of businesses and in-person school, mobility restrictions and curfews, quarantines, limits on group gatherings, and mask mandates dating back to at least the summer.  These measures did not significantly change the typical pattern or damage from the SARS2 virus.  President Biden openly admitted as much in his speech to the nation on Jan. 22, when he said “there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”  Instead of rethinking the results of implemented policies, many want to blame those who opposed lockdowns and mandates for the failure of the very lockdowns and mandates that were widely implemented. 

Ironically, all new policies will coincide with a decrease in cases, because that decrease is already evident across the United States. Hospitalizations in every age group, by CDC data, as well as deaths, have begun to decline. Confirming that trend is the marked drop in symptomatic COVID-19 patients coming to emergency rooms, down 40% from its peak almost a month ago to become lower than that seen before Thanksgiving. Despite that reality, is there any doubt how most of the American media will portray this in their analysis of the administration’s “First 100 Days”?

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me A Face Diaper, by Jim Quinn

It’s enough to make you wince: comparing the heroes of the Revolutionary War with today’s face-masked cowards. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

Patrick Henry and "Give Me Liberty!" – Lesson Plan This is my face diaper" Mask by Pnwswag | Redbubble

One month ago I wrote an article – Silent Obedient Consent – about our day in Cape May Lighthouse State Park and my disappointment in seeing so many perfectly healthy young people obediently wearing their face muzzles, as dictated by government bureaucrats,  on a bright crisp autumn day in a 244 acre state wild preserve. I found it sad that so many could be controlled so easily by so few.

Since my state has been on lockdown since our escape to Cape May and the weather has been cold, wet and snowy, we’ve been mostly cooped up in our home prison. The fear propaganda campaign has worked wonders, as our traditional Christmas Eve bash with 50 or so relatives and neighbors, was limited to six relatives. Monday, when I saw the temperature was going to 48 with bright sunshine, I insisted we needed to go to the 3,500 acre Valley Forge National Park to take a long walk.

Time to Defund the Forced Maskers, by Joseph Mercola

The mask has become a religious totem as the science continues to shred the claims made for masks’ efficacy. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

I’ve reviewed the science on mask wearing in several articles over the past nine months. So far, there’s not been a study showing a significant benefit. On the contrary, evidence is conspicuously piled on the side of the argument that they don’t protect the wearer or prevent the spread of infection in community settings.

Despite the lack of scientific basis, universal mask mandates continue to be pushed to ludicrous ends. Case in point: A family was recently booted off a United Airlines flight because the couple’s 2-year-old daughter refused to wear a face mask.1

Family Kicked Off Flight Over 2-Year-Old’s Mask Refusal

The father, Eliz Orban, spoke to Eyewitness News about the incident in their December 13, 2020, report. United Airlines issued a statement about the event, saying the company has “a multi-layered set of policies, including mandating that everyone onboard 2 and older wears a mask.”

Wealth Taxes, Mask Nazis, and COVID Rules, Oh My! by Simon Black

Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd. From Black at sovereignman.com:

Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Argentina Passes Wealth Tax in the Name of COVID Recovery

In response to COVID-19, Argentina implemented strict lockdowns which further destroyed its already struggling economy. And Argentina’s lockdowns did not achieve the government’s objective of slowing the spread of the disease.

Now, these brilliant politicians think they have found the solution to rebuild: a new wealth tax.

The government introduced a “one time” wealth tax which affects any Argentine with assets totalling $2.4 million or more.

These citizens will owe up to 3.5% of their total net worth to the government, and 5.25% of any wealth held outside of Argentina.

The government plans to use the money to pay for healthcare supplies, small business relief, scholarships, and some natural gas ventures.

They might as well also buy a billboard that says, “Do not bring your wealth to Argentina.”

Why I mask, by Sam Younnokis

The reasons probably aren’t too different from why many of us who oppose mask mandates end up wearing masks. From Sam Younnokis at americanthinker.org:

Masks are useless as well as uncomfortable.  I believe they actually increase the odds of the wearer coming down with a case of COVID infection.  They make it hard to have intelligible conversations and hide what few smiles people may still be having.  Yet I do mask.

Maybe I’m just a coward, afraid to stand against the overbearing government.  As noble and even important as such a stand would be, I value more my ability to be self-reliant.  In a modern world, in an urban environment such as the one in which I live, this is at best an illusion.  I’m not growing my own food or hauling water and firewood.  Maybe that’s practical and even essential if you have raw land that you’re homesteading.  It’s pretty much impossible for most city-dwellers.  There just isn’t enough land to support us, and there are many rules about what you can do with whatever space you have.

Don’t suggest everybody move to the countryside.  That would just destroy the countryside.

I live in an apartment.  I pay rent, buy food at stores, work in an office.  My self-reliance consists of paying the bills myself and doing the chores myself.  I know I’m no “mountain man.”  The local health department has required stores to demand that customers wear masks while shopping.  I don’t know how zealously the stores enforce the rules.  Perhaps their business licenses depend on a high level of compliance.  I wear the mask and try to limit myself to buying essentials only — no impulse purchases.  It doesn’t fight the edicts, but it limits the time I spend in the mask.

Silent Obedient Consent, by Jim Quinn

People who wear masks while they’re outside obviate one of the main benefits of being outside: fresh air. They also stupid signal (not virtue signal) that they’ve swallowed the propaganda hook, line, and sinker. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

Yesterday we took advantage of another beautiful Fall day in Cape May. We decided to check out the Cape May Lighthouse State Park. It is at the very end of Cape May. It is an example of what the government can do right – Preserve a natural habitat without glitz or commercialization. It is just miles of wetlands and walking trails. The lighthouse, built in 1859 by the U.S. Army is still functioning today. Two previous lighthouses succumbed to the sea. It is a majestic structure, reaching 157 feet into the sky.

On the beach, not far from the lighthouse, is Battery 223. It is a crumbling concrete structure from World War II which was designed to protect against invasion by German forces. The structure was built with six-foot thick reinforced concrete walls and a thick blast proof roof; the entire building was covered with earth. The 6-inch guns had a nine-mile range. It is an interesting relic from our past. The dilapidated condition struck me as symbolic of our crumbling empire.

Once you walked into the nature preserve, a feeling of calm and peacefulness overwhelms you. Swans and ducks glide across the salt water ponds enjoying a feast of minnows. It’s nature at its most pristine. Just quiet and beauty.
