UPDATE 4/17/21: Ted Cruz has had enough of The Mask and says he will stop wearing The Muzzle in the Senate. We eagerly await the cries of “Murderer!” “Monster!” and the like about to rain down upon him. Good example, Ted. Stop the maskarade and watch millions of people suddenly behave once again like free Americans. Eventually it has to hit home to the brainwashed that the face maskarade is akin to the herd branding of livestock, that they have been the pawns of behavioral scientists into crowd control, NOT medical scientists into curing the sick and Doing No Harm.
UPDATE 4/11/21: This is a joke, right? The “smart mask” that tells you when to wash it. And whatever else it cares to monitor for your own good. Never mind the damn things are useless and nothing but the tangible markings of a obedient, submissive populace, like cattle branding.
The Mask says everything there is know about the Left: it’s never about what they say it is . Peddled as “safety” and “decency” it is, in FACT, bad for you. Should we be surprised that pros and cons regarding everything surrounding this CoronaCraziness falls right down along political lines? According to growing reports, the graphene masks are as healthy for the lungs as asbestos. Scared? Cautious? Simple health reasons not to wear the mask or take the vaccine are now multiplying like unchecked cancer cells.…0r to use an unfortunate phrase of the internet age, going viral.
UPDATE 3/30/21: The esteemed Dr. Fauci moves into mass masked child abuse with the same perverse casualness that has accompanied all his destructive bits of worthless advice.
UPDATE 3/21/21: Our Beloved Leader scolds 330 million of his naughty followers and imposes mandatory mask-wearing until he decides we’re good again. Sadly, one more Babylon Bee fiction that is actually truth.
UPDATE 3/2/21: UPDATE 3/2/21: Stupidly self-important Mask Nazis fearfully face uncertain future as threats of ending the lockdowns and all attendant madness looms.
UPDATE 1/24/21: The symbolism of power over a uniformly submissive Mask Nation is not lost on our newly installed Beloved Leaders and their stooges in the MSM and social media: “What a difference leadership makes!” A masked nation is a SAFE nation and a very quiet, resigned, obedient one.
P.S. Asks Dennis Prager quite reasonably: if Joltin’ Joe has had both doses of the vaccines, why does he continue to wear The Mask in photo ops? Answer: it’s utterly useless except as a fake political prop.
UPDATE 1/5/21: There has never been anything remotely “scientific” about the enforcement of The Big Maskerade, just a visible display of power by the Faucists and the desired response of mass obedience from the masses.
UPDATE 1/3/21: The Mask remains the most compelling psychological cue of control from our totalitarian Masters In Waiting. What better way to exert control over masses of people than attaching the highest Virtue (and Sin in its absence) to The Mask? Then sicking the faceless mob on any conspicuous violators of that New Value.
UPDATE 12/22/20: When will the devout maskeraders realize/admit their beloved face prop is useless, nothing more than a virtue signal and mark of obedience to their masters (aka The Marxist Mafiosi Who Would Rule Us)? Perhaps they might enjoy looking at faces again as people go about the business of living.
UPDATE 12/20/20: Sorry to ask the annoying question, but how come all this claimed resurgence of the virus after all the masks and lockdowns? For the hysterical hypochondriacs and control freaks drawing a bit of perverse comfort from all the restrictions, it’s the fault of all those healthy people walking around defying the controls. So, MORE CONTROL! And MORE YET! Perhaps just killing off everyone would finally “flatten the curve.”
UPDATE 12/12/20: Will there ever be a time when honest, free people can look back and shake their hands at this mask madness and its sinister hold on such a vast swath of the sheepish public?
UPDATE 10/26/20: Now Mask Refusers, widely viewed as murderers, are now sentenced to Delta Airlines NoFly blacklist, right alongside political terrorists.
There’s a slim chance that whole mobs masked en masse in the tens of millions like the photo below will give the DemDeathMaskers pause. Who says this doesn’t fall right down political lines? [P.S. Silly naive me. Nothing gives Trump-haters pause. A shameless “former Republican” DC operative doxes the nuns on Twitter! No bottom to that grungy Trump-hater barrel.]
UPDATE 10/16/20: So now it’s been decided by the NY Times that men’s reluctance to submit to the universal Mask Mandate is one more example of “toxic masculinity.” The best response to that is Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” approach: we’re despicable, we’re deplorable, so we leave them to their Woke socialism/communism. Inconveniently for them, they are rejecting the American capitalist men and women who like MAGA hats and make the world run. They need us. We don’t need them. Bye.
UPDATE 10/14/20: From the start, there have been tens of millions of us who bridled at the conditioned obedience driving the senseless, sinister mask charade. And if “the science” matters, perhaps the Virtuous Mask-araders might heed the very real health dangers of prolonged oxygen deprivation, particularly to children.
UPDATE 10/7/20: The mask as High Virtue Signal and political prop hangs on. Easy money this farcical charade (and psychological instrument of mass control) played out by Dem hypocrites vanishes post-election. Follow the science…until its usefulness expires.
UPDATE 8/29/20: Kamala wins more hearts and minds by promising, if elected, to put everyone in a face mask. For the ShareTheMisery crowd who desperately love their chains and think nothing of everyone else wearing/sharing them, this is a dream come true. For the rest of us, thanks, but no thanks.
UPDATE 8/2/20: Hats off to Holland for dispensing with the ugly, useless masks. I would prefer wearing wooden shoes indefinitely to watching millions of proudly masked Americans look and act like the preening, self-righteous fools they’ve become. And forcing the rest of us to do the same.
UPDATE 8/2/20: We’re seeing what life is like when the Socialized public is forced into One Size Fits All, and some decide they’re not going with the program. “We’re all in this together!” whether it’s necessary or everyone agrees. Rationalizing it as necessary for everyone’s safety is ideal for the totalitarian mindset. Not only necessary but “decent.” Conversely, deserving of scorn and social ostracism and even some mace in the face for those who don’t go along.
ORIGINAL POST 7/12/20: Politics is theatre, and the Democrat Left Party has now gone fulltime into show biz. Ritualistic African garb, taking the knee in solemn submission, the infernal masks…one big splashy Carnival Barking Show of virtuous civic duty, shrouded in the smoky incense of social concern! How else to fathom the Left’s presumptive candidate holed up in his basement promising, if elected, to make America one big kneeling Mask Nation! Oh? Are we planning to have this contagion a permanent American fixture?
“As your duly elected POTUS, I promise to make mask-wearing a mandatory requirement for continued US citizenship!” Hard to believe, but that campaign pitch actually appeals to those of the electorate who long to be controlled (and control vicariously). And they are many.
The Mask is the message, and the message is mass obeisance to arbitrary directives from our self-anointed masters. A dream come true for the budding totalitarians currently masquerading as American mayors, governors, CongressCreatures, Senators and Presidential candidates! Is it any accident that the two greatest threats to our way of life-the Left and Islam-share a penchant for The Mask as an instrument of submission? A not-so-new or surprising axis of evil to contemplate.
What is notably missing from this whole phony display is the fact that herd immunity is The Way out of these pandemics…and that the nasty masks may actually make things worse. Obviously, those most susceptible to the virus-the elderly and the immuno-compromised-must be sheltered. And the rest of healthy society should go on with their lives and work. But that only happens in a rational world, not the one we inhabit at the moment, a nightmare of snitching, bullying, mass humiliation all in the name of “Saving Lives.” It’s a world infected by an infinitely deadlier virus than the Wuhan Flu. It’s called, in its various stages, liberalism, progressivism, leftism, socialism, communism, totalitarianism.
We live among fools and are compelled to suffer and accommodate their insanity. Such is the lot of living in a democracy with its pitfalls of human folly. The mandates of the democratic majority can easily deteriorate into the will of the killer mob, and those of us who cherish freedom are wary.
