I’ve argued long and hard against the Covid Nazis’ notion that a herd immunity will never develop and that everyone has to wear a mask. My point was that if a mask protects a person who is fearful of contracting the disease, and if that person really believes that the mask protects him from the disease, then why do I, a non-believer in the worthless masks, have to wear one? I fully respect anyone’s right to wear a mask if they feel better with it, but if they are certain that the mask protects their health, then my not wearing one cannot hurt anyone.
The only reason Democrat politicians insist on forcing the mask on the entire population is that they get a certain tingling up their legs at the knowledge that they can control citizens’ lives with the threat of prison or a stiff fine if the citizens don’t obey their masters.
So the next argument from the left was that we cannot stop insisting on wearing the mask in public until everyone has been vaccinated. Now the corrupt Democrat position is that even when a person has been vaccinated against the disease they will still be required to wear a facial mask. My argument is the same for the vaccination as it was for the masks: If the vaccine is effective in protecting those persons vaccinated against the disease, then why do I have to wear a mask, and why must I be vaccinated? My not being vaccinate does not endanger anyone who is protected by having been vaccinated, and I choose to not be vaccinated. The radical left’s whole argument for the mask and for vaccinations is illogical and confusing to a sensible person.
Liberty and freedom of choice, for intelligent adult citizens, are the point. Whether it’s wearing a mask or getting a vaccination, what we want to achieve is herd immunity so we can all do the things we love to do. Sitting at home wearing a mask that provides little if any protection is not what we want to do as free citizens, and sitting at home will not hurry the immunity that is the only true solution to any disease. And in particular, being forced to not work due to a government shutdown of nearly all economic transactions can destroy lives more easily and more permanently than being sick.
The ideal situation is to achieve herd immunity, but Democrats don’t want herd immunity because that would protect us without the need of a vaccination, or any other government involvement, in our lives.
We’ve seen the far-left Democrat politicians and bureaucrats talk in circles, from telling us that masks will not protect us, to telling us that the masks are required, and then telling us that one mask is not enough, but now we must wear two masks; from telling us that the disease is not dangerous, to telling us that the disease will kill millions of people; to learning that vast numbers of deaths have been misdiagnosed and officially labeled as being covid deaths when the Wuhan virus was indeed not the actual cause of death.
Prior to the 2020 election Joey told us that we need to only wear masks for the first 100 days of his administration and all will be well. Now he tells us that the variations and new strains of the disease will require maybe an additional year of wearing masks. Then we were told that vaccinations will make the nation well and we will be able to return to normal when vaccinations are administered. Now they tell us that even following a vaccination, masking will be required until all Americans have been vaccinated. But a thinking person who knows the corrupt history of Democrat rulers will be able to predict that further controls on our ability to move about and breathe freely once again will be implemented within a few months, based on the fiction of Democrat “science“, and these forced controls on American citizens, imposed and enforced against our will, will exist into the foreseeable future.
It’s an absolute certainty that when we’ve all been vaccinated there will be another strain of the disease that will require masking to start all over again, and very likely we‘ll need a new lockdown again, as well.
We’re being played for fools, and threat of imprisonment is how Democrats prohibit us from doing things today that we were able to do freely prior to the covid farce, and there will be no end to these unconstitutional orders placing restrictions on our liberties, with Democrats placing the big boot of government on our necks.
