Here’s some good news- for a change – about armed government workers in Oregon, who refused to Diaper up:
The AGWs were in a coffee shop where – as seemingly everywhere – there is a government decreed sign out front that everyone must Diaper up, to create the impression of universal fear of a virus that isn’t a mortal threat to practically everyone (99.5 percent of us). And so they didn’t Diaper up – even at the bleating, sheeplike-insistence of the useful idiot manager, who – like so many business owners – is accomplicing these Diapering decrees by demanding that everyone who enters put one on.
The AGWs decided to not perform Sickness Kabuki, which is being criticized as an example of AGW Privilege. Who is going to tell them they must Diaper up? Who is going to try to deny entry to an armed government worker?
But they set an example of defiance that is vey laudable.
One of the AGWs does so using direct – and apropos – expletives.
“Fuck Kate Brown,” he says – referring to the Diaper-Decree’r in Chief of the state of Oregon. Later on, they doubled down:
“Governor Brown has no authority to take our civil liberties. We aren’t going to wear (Diapers)”
Indeed. And, bravo. The example these AGWs have set is magnificent, even more so because they are in a position to set it without risking the same repercussions that might fall upon the rest of us. It will be even more magnificent, however, if these AGWs take the next step and refuse to enforce Diaper decrees upon the rest of us.
If they did that, we might recover some respect for them and perhaps even consider them allies in a common fight rather than the Rottweilers of our oppressors, people like Gesundheitsfuhrer Brown, for one.
Addendum: The “heroes” aren’t. They caved in; diapered-up. To save their miserable jobs. Is there any principle people won’t sacrifice for the sake of mammon? Or even just go-along/get along?
