We are forced to hand over our money to the government. We still have the power – and the legal right – to withhold it from businesses that don’t deserve it.
One such is Carl’s Jr. – the hamburger chain. Which just issued a policy decreeing that Face Diapers must be worn by employees and patrons . . . until the latter get to their anti-socially distanced tables, where they will be allowed to take them off.
This sort of ritual – in the cultic sense – is being performed at restaurants and cafes all over the country. It defies medical sense – because if “the virus” is in the air and if Face Diapers are the only thing keeping “the virus” from infecting and killing people (99.5 percent of whom never actually die) then one should never take them off.
No one should be out and about. People didn’t get hamburgers when the Bubonic Plague was about. But we must pretend the Bubonic Plague is about.
It becomes even more obviously ritualistic when you take into account that literally any filthy old rag qualifies as a “face covering” – in the superciliously faux clinical language of these Diapering Decrees.
It is a performance; theater – which even High Priest of the Sickness Cult Dr. Fauci admitted – the admission now memory-holed, along with the related injunctions to not Face Diaper, now retracted.
Because it is now necessary to maintain the impression that Bubonic Plague is in the air.
The admission still exists – on the box side of “coverings” typically on hand at the entrance to stores and other places with Diapers muss sein polices. It says – right there – that the flimsy thing “will not provide any protection (italics added) against CFOVID-19 or other viruses or contaminants.”
If “the virus” were actually the threat it is hyped to be then nothing less than a fitted N100 mask – regularly replaced – would be the mandatory minimum. Something that actually is medically effective against viruses – which dirty old bandanas and cheap, probably China-made (or GM-made) “coverings” aren’t.
But that presents a problem because the effective masks aren’t cheap and people might chafe about being “asked” to spend $25-30 or more at least once or twice a week on such a cultic symbol.
The fact that most would chafe says a lot about their belief in the threat of “the virus,” too. As opposed to their intense interest to play pretend. And make sure you do, too.
Which brings us back to restaurants like Carl’s Jr. Would you eat there or at any joint that had a policy requiring you to bow your head in deference to Barack Obama while standing in line outside? Wear a ribbon in support of LBGT “rights” that you disagree exist as a condition of being served?
Dance like a Hare Krishna?
Then why do you willingly put on a ridiculous – because it doesn’t serve any medical purpose – flimsy, disposable cheaply made and utterly ineffective at “keeping you safe” piece of cloth or dirty old bandana because Carl’s Jr. tells you to?
Rather, because you have already been trained. The donning of the filthy cloth is merely the ritual expression, very much akin to the genuflection of a Catholic before the altar upon entering the church. No disparagement intended. The Catholic is aware he is performing a ritual and he is not forced to enter the church.
We are, however, forced to eat.
Denial of food and other necessaries to those who don’t perform the required rituals is a very old tool recurrently used. In Soviet Russia, it was used to starve out “enemies of the people.” You ate so long as you said and did and wore the things required of that religion. Also in the other place, where a partei pin marked you out as one of the members in good standing while those not in good standing were forced to wear another article of exterior affectation.
The filthy rag, the dirty old bandana, the clinically useless “face covering” is the same thing, differently worn.
And those who try to force you to wear are undeserving of your business. If you give them your business, you deserve being forced to join the cult. And keep in mind that it’s a cult you can’t unjoin.
The Kool Aid line forms here – right outside of Carl’s Jr.
