A reader informs me of something that may soon be trending in the land of Sickness Psychosis. While shopping at Kroger without the Holy Rag upon his face – which Kroger doesn’t enforce though it does post signs by the front door that “masks” are “mandatory” – he found himself singled out for attention over the air.
The in-house audio system that used to play cheery Muzak for shoppers in the days before hypochondria was weaponized announced:
Attention! There is a customer in the store without a mask on!
Which might as well be: Look! A Kike!
The ostracization and demonization tactics are identical but many people don’t want to see it because it is too appalling to believe. This cannot be happening. They don’t really mean it.
Except, they do.
And many also desire it.
What else is the above if it is not meant to call attention to someone – and to instill fear in that someone that everyone else has just been told to be on the lookout for him? Add to this the element of rancid hysteria over a sickness that doesn’t kill 99.8-something percent of the healthy population but which what appears to be 99.8 percent of the population believes will kill them and what you’ve got is a recipe for mob attacks on the singled-out.
With the implication, almost announced . . . get the Kike!
It has already been normalized – legalized – to close the doors of commerce and social existence to the “kikes” of our time, the people who choose not to wear a Holy Rag or pretend they are sick for the sake of the feelings of people who’ve lost their minds over fear of sickness.
They have been ghetto-ized, forced out of public life – anathematized.
If you think this is a bit much, you ought to think again. Most Germans circa 1915 didn’t regard Jewish people as a dangerous bacillus, a threat to the health of the nation. They didn’t shout at them in public, chase them with baseball bats.
It took time to convince them to do such things.
The loss of everything after the loss of the war – World War I – accelerated the process. Broke and desperate people are easy pawns for those looking to scapegoat other people.
Does it ring familiar?
By 1932 it was easy to close the doors of commerce and public life to “the jew” – which meant every Jewish person, who was no longer an individual but an archetype of evil, the source of all that had gone wrong in the Reich.
A disease that had to be stamped out.
Signs went up at the doors of commerce – at the gates of towns. Juden sind hier unerwunscht – Jews aren’t welcome here. It became acceptable to treat Jews as vermin.
And what happens to vermin?
It is becoming acceptable to treat anyone who doesn’t wear the Holy Rag as vermin. Open violence hasn’t yet been urged though violence is being visited upon the Unholy via their systematic exclusion from everything and by implicit threats of violence if they show any signs of Unholiness – as in the case of the woman I met at Kroger who thanked me for showing my face but told me she was afraid to show hers (see my latest Diaper Report, here).
How would she have felt if the loudspeaker in a public space suddenly eructed with a shrill alert – a command, almost – to be aware of the “kike” in the store?
One used to hear injunctions about Never Again! – and yet, here it is. But because it’s a different pariah class this time, it’s ok this time.
It is always ok this time.
The lesson – never learned – is that in the midst of the pogrom, most people are convinced the pogrom is righteous and that it is virtuous to participate in it. Only in retrospect, after the pogrom’s victims are in the ground, are apologies offered.
There is nothing special about America or Americans – who are just as apt to yell “Get the kike!” as Germans were, once upon a time. The difference is they think they’re different and that the “kikes” of today deserve what they get because they are dangerous, disease-spreading people who . . .
We’re in for another ride.

So, I went back to Kroger last night. Went at 9PM and the place was a glorious ghost town. Still, I was the only unmasked one in the place. On the way in, as I walked past the cameras, I pulled a neck gaiter up over my nose and once in I took it down. During my shopping, I ran into a masked acquaintance and she stopped me to chat for roughly five minutes. She commented on my lack of face diapering and I told her that I don’t diaper. She just shrugged and kept on yapping. Other than the standard Kroger mask message that is broadcast over the intercom every few minutes, I wasn’t singled out. During check out I interacted with three different employees who never even gave me a second glance.
Were you the one who got singled out? Someone ought to have called and ripped corporate a new one. They couldve cost someone their life with that shit, seize that fool’s livelihood instead
Biden is calling for a third round of stimulus–$1,400 checks for everyone. For this much “free” money, it sounds like he’s going to lock down the joint. Regardless, we’re in for a rough ride.
$1400 is pennies on the dollars that are being delivered to the bank cartel and its minions on Wall Street. It’ a bribe. Intended to distract you from the transgenerational debt being inflicted upon you for the sake of delivering your wealth to those who don’t even need it. But they don’t want you to keep it. And that’s the prize they seek. They want you powerless. Period.
Yup, and it’s not even pennies on the dollar. It’s pennies on millions of dollars. Anyone who still has any savings in dollars has to get ASAP.
Yes, and while locked down we will have plenty of free time to get our injections! While this is largely about the Great Reset, it’s also about the Great Vaccination program. Hard to believe but it’s true. (No, I’m not getting the filthy jab.)
Not for everyone….only for those that are deemed “important.” The rest of us are screwed, because, of course, success should be punished. 🙁
One in-law is absolutely livid with my constant poking fun at wearing masks, she works in the health care industry and insists everyone wear a mask. I mock it by saying ‘wear your mask’, just grinds her gears. Haven’t seen any more correspondence in the past few days, I just don’t care how Karen she goes, you go, girl. lol
Won’t talk to me, just too bad. I am quite convinced that the mocking is going to cause her to have major anger issues. What can you do? You wear your mask or else is basically what she wants from it, can’t be any other way. Goes ballistic, uff da looey.
Another in-law’s mother is older than the hills, has become despondent and angry because of being isolated and locked inside a health care facility. It’s sad and maddening both.
It all has got to end.
Next week begins National Mask Wearers Week for weeks and weeks on end.
Joe the Sniffer dude will have his mask on while being inaugurated, it’ll be fun!
Flip flop, it never stops.
It could stop – soon – if just a third of the population absolutely refused to comply. This would make the rest look ridiculous, which would make more of them shed their Holy Face Burqa. The “mandates” would then become unenforceable. But it’s like what occurred after Nahhhnnnnnlevven (say it like that lisping monkey-faced sociopath, The Chimp). The majority of bipedal cattle simply lined up for their fondling and scanning and accepted it as the “new normal.” Normal people could avoid this disgusting degradation ritual by avoiding airports. But the newest degradation rituals are everywhere, almost.
I don’t know why anyone expresses surprise over Government overreach or the way the average shit-for-brains accepts it without question and then demands the not shit-for-brains accept it.
It has been this way since the mid eighties, if not long before.
BTW “normal people”. Normal is the majority. The majority are stupid, gullible and crave ‘direction’ from others. Thinking is hard, so they avoid it like poison.
Those with curious minds and functional reasoning skills are most certainly NOT normal.
With great regret,I agree with all you’ve written. The “remnant” is those who can think, are willing to exercise the capability. The rest feel, react and beg to be told what to do.
America has been the first and most successful communist/totalitarian experiment. If you date it to the progressive era and the income tax/fed, it was mostly successful as Americans were able to avoid/escape the effects it had in old world countries like Russia- where the culture was settled and there was widespread traditional resistance to it which was put down by things like the holodomor.
In short, Americans have been had and brainwashed and believed themselves free for so long that they’ve lost their herd immunity to government. Too many believe it is a force for good, rather than just a force wielded by people like them.
The fever is peaking now, we’ll have to see if the patient recovers and gets some immunity, or continues to languish in a coma, or dies. I’m entirely unsure of how to bet.
The herd has been divided and each half has been programmed to despise the other half. There are only two likely possibilities now, Civil War or Martial Law to prevent it.
Civil war risks getting out of their control so Martial Law it will be. Domestic terrorism, even if they have to create it, will be the trigger. A Republican straight white male will kill a bunch of some Leftist group and a 5000 page Patriot Act 2 will be passed within days.
Just my guess.
With all the foreshadowing I’m seeing on the media now I suspect someone will promote Kamala Harris. I’m also sure they will have a patsy queued up.
“Thinking is hard, so they avoid it like poison.”
Got that right! Most of these dildos prefer CON-venience over FREEDOM. If they had a choice between a FREE 3,500 sq-ft house on a 10-acre property, and a 300 sq-ft “broom closet” in the city complete with a full-time maintenance and landscaping crew that “only” costs $200/month, which do you think they would prefer?
Your in-law is definitely a kool-aid drinker. My wife is a nurse of ~30 years and she knows masks are useless. She knows plenty in the industry who gulp the Jones-tini, but also plenty who know they’re bullshit; they do it because they have family to feed.
What’s ‘comical’ is all over the country, including in the bastions of lockdowns, MASK-UP!!!, and Sciencism, they’re making clinicians who test positive for da’rona keep working. So all the measures are for not because these people are catching it (or just falling into the massive false positive rates) and then they’re becoming ‘super-spreaders’ inside hospitals. Glorious!
I apologize for being a little off topic (maybe not, cause it has to do with stupid people) but I just can’t help my self. You see, this person made some tea out of “magic mushrooms” and then injected himself with it….for real !
Here’s the link
Too bad I never got to party with him. I bet he was a “fungi”.
Bwaaahahahaha! *drum crash*
Note to everyone: Magic mushrooms are potent enough when eaten.
I’m surprised he didn’t go into anaphylaxis with that luminary stunt.
What it boils down to is that we’re nothing more than battered wives.
My son posted this to facebook and all 15 symptoms of being in an abusive relationship are ticked off as what GovCo is doing to the population. One thing it doesn’t cover is how many people in abusive relationships will defend the abuser if someone points out the abuse. Just as those that rat out their parents, hector strangers and generally stick their nose in other people’s business.
It’s truly amazing. It does beat you down mentally. I’m getting to the point that if you told me the needling would turn me into a mindless sheep like the majority of the country I might even take it. The phycological warfare is truly hard. I haven’t slept well since March. How can a sane person process all of this. How can there be so few sane people?
Liberty Tax is making their employees in the statue of liberty costumes wear the rags when they are outside, on the side of the road, by themselves.
Taxes and forced diapering… That’s liberty, I tell ya!
I laugh my ass off every time I see one of those folks. Liberty and Tax are mutually exclusive. Kinda like “Holy War”.
I saw some idiot today wearing a face diaper while riding a bicycle. The universe may be finite, but stupidity isn’t.
Then there are the dildos who wear them…in their own car…with the windows up…BY THEMSELVES! Makes me wonder if they actually wear them to bed…in their own homes…by themselves.
I’ve read that some colleges are advising students to wear them during sex – and to have sex not facing one another. Sexy stuff, huh?
I just saw one state is now ordering citizens to wear masks in their own homes! To prevent inter-family transmission.
I the average mouth breather can’t understand the stupidity of this, we are truly screwed.
Comet. Really fucking big one, right here please.
Nothing new in the home country. In Canada doggy is preferred so we can both watch the hockey game.
Time for them to change their company name
I love a well read militia. 😉
Pic of one of the National Guard members taking a break while patrolling the Capitol. Feel free to ignore the Yahoo article, but I did get a chuckle out of the book choice.
Hint: For those that don’t want to look – it is Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’
the national guard is being touted out as the new “dancing nurses” heroes. With all their hardship sleeping on the floor photos. its all so pathetic and obvious. they sure couldnt do a damn thing about businesses getting looted
An attempt to dispose of the last of the Bill of Rights not already disposed of? The third amendment, which does not allow troops to be quartered in private homes. An attempt to make any who deny such quartering appear ” unpatriotic”? The Psychopaths In Charge have loosed their dogs upon us. Fortunately, dogs are not bullet proof.
like the federal government couldnt afford a hotel for them
It’s not because they couldn’t…
“By their deeds you will know them.”
These horrible evil monsters prefer their faceless slaves sleeping on the floor. They get a kick out of exerting their power over others. These same overlords are trying to normalize the eating of bugs (for us, not them). They are rubbing their evil in our faces and laughing about it.
The point of their propaganda and their actions is not merely to control but to humiliate. They have taken off their masks, and shown us their true nature, because they feel we are powerless to stop them. We need to truly come to terms with the horrible evil we are up against if we are ever to put an end to it.
Sometimes, when I shop at the local grocery (a locally owned, American company, BTW!), I sometimes generate a reminder announcement over the PA to wear your mask. I have to walk by the CS desk, so they see me; sometimes, if they’re not busy, they’ll make an announcement over the store PA reminding everyone to wear their mask. They did it the other night, and they interupted good song, damn it! I felt good though… 🙂
As with political correctness, diaper correctness is about mind control. Forcing people to speak and behave in certain ways will quickly cause them to believe they must actually be engaging in the behavior willingly. The cognitive dissonance must be resolved. Facts no longer matter, perceptions are reality. Fellow human beings are now perceived as vectors for viral infection. Masks are required for the health and safety of the community. Removal of the non compliant is required for the good of all.
The new “Jim Crow” is alive and well in today’s COVID fear society.
Those of us who cannot wear masks are being discriminated against.
We are told that we cannot enter businesses, are harassed by some business owners and employees for not wearing a mask, and in some cases refused service for the inability to wear a mask.
It gets better. We are told that we can order on line, request “curb service” or home delivery. We are still being denied the ability to walk into a business establishment and being served without harassment or outright refusal. This is just WRONG.
All of these “compromises” are no different than “Jim Crow” laws–in the past, African Americans being refused service, or confined to “carry-out service”, or being unable to walk into a store without being harassed or even being denied service.
Those of us who are unable to wear masks are being discriminated against, “Jim Crow” style.
The 1964 Civil rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race and of medical condition. Public accommodation is a necessary right that cannot be abrogated.
Both Acts are being flagrantly violated by ANY business that harasses or denies service to those of us who cannot wear masks.
Where is the enforcement of the Civil Rights Act and the ADA?
Indeed. The leftist gutter press has given itself permission to label anyone who’s Caucasian or Republican as a ‘white supremacist,’ despite their having literally nothing to do with advocating a return to legalized segregation.
Their alternative label is ‘Klansman.’ The last time I even heard of a KKK meeting was four decades ago. And it was in an NYC suburb, not the South.
Like the degeneration of ‘antisemite’ into a generic, cheap-shot term of abuse for anyone who dares to criticize Israel and its very real ‘Abdul Crow’ legal segregation enforced by religiously coded identity cards, ‘white supremacist’ is now just a glib, casual insult along the lines of ‘ofay’ or ‘a-hole.’
Degenerate language and degenerate politics work hand in hand to cripple actual civil rights.
Yes, but remember, this is an ’emergency.’ It’s the ’emergency’ status the trumps everything else, even our constitutional rights. That’s why the lawsuits have failed, they focused on the violation of individual constitutional rights and not on the bogus ’emergency’ status. That’s the key!
Something all the maskive assholes need to consider. I am almost at the end of my rope. If I can’t live, because you fucks have won’t let me shop for bare necessities without joining your cult, my interest in the places you shop continuing to stand drops to zero. In fact, any interest in you assholes breathing in and out does too.
If my life no longer has value, imagine what I think of those who have taken the value from me. Keep pushing. See what happens. I am ready to check out. I assume by the mask wearing they are not.
I am not a domestic terrorist….. yet. Keep pushing.
Message to businesses…
There are those of us who cannot wear masks that are being purposely discriminated against by employees and owners of various businesses…
There are a few things you should keep in mind…for the sake of success of your business…
Refusing to do business with or abusing customers who cannot wear masks WILL come back to affect your “bottom line”…
Keep in mind that EVEN when masking is no longer recommended, your customers that you abused or refused to do business with WILL NOT BE BACK…
Here is a list of businesses that have either abused customers or refused to do business with those who cannot wear masks:
O’Reilly Auto Parts
Barnes & Noble
More to follow…
Please add to the list. Let’s inform businesses that their illegal behavior which is contrary to the Civil-Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans With Disabilities Act will not be tolerated and that we will refuse to do business with them…in perpetuity.
“when masking is no longer recommended…” If only it was merely “recommended.”
As far as I am concerned, “masking” IS “recommended” as I don’t wear one…ever.
True that. Me, too.
Just sayin that “recommended” is equivocation from the gubmint. Ain’t nothin’ “recommended” about it.
Anyone remember someplace in Scandinavia culling mink as they tested positive, or in western Canada where a similar thing occurred. In fact many believe this bug had it’s origin in bats, a mammal. Exposure in close quarters seems to be a major vector. Why no masks for Fido or Mittens? Perhaps testing and culling of all mammalian pets might be in order?
I think that was Denmark (?). And yes, I heard that. Soooo many fur coats. And I’ve heard the Vox Domini state something similar, that having pets puts you at much higher risk. Basically, anything that could bring you joy or make life worth living puts you at higher risk.
What I heard was that the mink could get it and then it mutated into a strain that was not preventable by the vaccines they were just getting ready to put out. If that mutated strain was transmitted back to people (I do not know if that was possible here or if they were being preemptive or over-cautious), the vaccines would not work.
And any government attempt at culling mammalian pets will result in domestic terrorism that makes the summer and capitol riots look like a child’s game of red rover. Just my prediction, anyway. People will take a lot of crap from our so-called public servants – more than they should IMO – but do not fuck with their dogs and cats.
Some small resistance here in Az:
I think I might go buy a t-shirt.
Also, did you name this article “The Howling” because you know that movie is still AWESOME and it would attract my attention?!
Thanks for the article. I just emailed them asking to place an order. I am tired of this BS. Even in VA I am happy to help a fellow no masker. I need a couple new business shirts anyway.
I much rather help a small business with solid principles than give the money to a larger custom ink store that feels the need to kneel to the MSM.
Awesome! And yes, I’d just rather support small business, anyway. They don’t suffer nearly as much from corporate stupidity or propagate bizarre psychological programming as do larger business. Being able to speak and reason with a store owner is indispensable, as is the ability for that owner to think for themselves.
Well, they already have children turning in their parents, people turning in family members, friends and neighbors so we are already at East German standards.
And people thought 2020 was bad, wait until Hair Plug man ascends the Throne next week, and immediately decrees his “!00 Days of the Mask.” This is all the mask Nazis need to make our lives more miserable. They will be given the green light from POTUS to mask up, and will force us to mask up. It’s gonna get ugly.
So, last night, me and 4 other people went out to dinner here in Saint Petersburg, FL. All of us walked into the restaurant sans diaper with no issue, and were seated without a peep of complaint from the waitress. Most of the servers and staff of the restaurant were half-heartedly wearing their diaper below their nose. Sadly, every customer I saw, except for my party, was diapered up when they left their feeding troughs to move about the restaurant. They would even diaper up when leaving their table to go to the restroom. How stupid are these people? They sit at their feeding troughs to eat without wearing their diaper, but place it on their face the minute they leave their seat. Are they immune from Covid while seated? Are they too frightened to remove their diaper while taking a leak?
I don’t think it’s that. The reason these chodes will perform such ridiculous behavior is their “care” or “concern” for uhhhhhhthers. These people, who couldn’t tell you the actual difference between a right and wrong action if their lives depended on it, will claim moral superiority because they “carrrrrrrre” more than you do. They’re still spiritual infants who want to be good little boys and girls.
And like the little kids, they taddle to mommy and daddy about the other misbehaving “children.”
Please SHARE, masked bandits.
“Let’s go out to eat, 2020 style…
1. Arrive at restaurant, fish three month old single-use surgical mask out of car’s filthy cupholder (still slightly sticky from this morning’s 84oz diet Pepsi).
2. Strap up with three month old single-use surgical mask.
*MAGICAL ANTI-GERM BARRIER ENGAGE!!!*
3. Proceed into restaurant, opening door with same handle grabbed by 200 people so far today.
4. Hostess has immediate seating for your woke party of three. Walk past entire restaurant of unmasked people. It’s ok, they’re sitting.
5. Sit down.
*SEATED ANTI-GERM FORCEFIELD ENGAGE!!!*
6. Safely within your anti-germ forcefield, remove mask. Browse menu while making relaxed inhales of the same recirculated AC air previously inside the lungs of the 200 people that also grabbed the door handle.
7. Waitress drops off drinks bare handed.
8. Grab drink with your bare hand. Sip leisurely, secure in knowing you’re within your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness.
9. Too many drinks. Need to pee. Don the magical anti-germ barrier mask as you leave your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness.
10. Walk past 40 unmasked restaurant patrons. Open bathroom with same door knob grabbed by 100 other people so far today.
11. Return to table past same 40 unmasked restaurant patrons.
12. Remove mask. Once again safe in your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness. Waitress takes your sweaty drink glass with her bare hand, refills, hands back to you. You accept with your bare hand. Grab some bread and eat it. Same hand. Yum Yum.
13. Meal complete. Mask on. Walk past 40 unmasked patrons. Make full body contact with at least 4 people waiting at the hostess stand as you squeeze your way back to the door – no matter, they’re all also wearing their magical anti-germ barriers.
14. Grab exit handle, which you are now the 220th person of the day to touch. Eating out successful.
15. Breathe a sigh of relief knowing that even after leaving the protection of your home and venturing out into the scary world of the public, you are essentially sterile thanks to your state approved methods of magical germ mitigation.”
Seriously, Do you actually get this? It’s not about the virus. You’re being played.
I’d rather just wear my invisible mask.
LOL, anarchryst. You are right, we are being played and social conditioned. It is a sick, sick world.
Ha! So true and hilarious writing BTW. This accurately describes a recent visit to Outback for us. So freaking stupid. We chose the bar area to eat and thought it wasn’t very busy until we noticed every other table was blocked off. So we sat at one that still had some dirty glasses on it and pushed them to the end. I’m sure that was against policy. The table needed to be sanitized for 15 minutes or something before the next guests could sit there. But the waitress/bartender said nothing, just took the dirties away and wiped the table. I’m sure she’s tired of all the crap, too, and just wants to make money. We paid her well.
Well, my take is different. I suspect great resistance will now commence- Trump really screwed the pooch by donning the rag- he spread confusion and dissent among those of us holding the line against the great con.
Biden is acknowleged as illegitimate by a simple majority in this country, according to the polls I’ve seen. The vast majority of R’s and a large minority of D’s recognizes blatant election theft.
The fearmongers are going to ramp up- but even a lot of the sheepish who are going along to get along are having stress/fear fatigue.
Fear and division are the primary tools of tyrants. One begets the other. Mutually reinforcing each other. Fear increases division between us and the “other”, and division increases fear, of the “other”. The method was documented in Machiavelli’s The Prince. How unfortunate that his work, intended as a satire, was embraced as a play book by future tyrants. He was just a tad too successful in describing how well it works. Governments have never proven efficient and effective at anything other than killing people. They are quite good at it.
Next up is the phony vaccine shortage routine to scare the sheeple. It’s already happening where I am. Radio personalities are bemoaning the fact that not enough people have been vaccinated and that stadiums should be used to mass vaccinate. Since the vaccines can only be administered by trained people one of the areas most popular personalities suggested that we should be able to “give them to each other.” The problem of course, is that “only 500 doses of the vaccine are currently available for distribution!” OMG only 500 doses, what will we do! How many must die! Nothing new here of course, they pulled the old vaccine shortage routine on us before so we knew it was coming.
Never mind that the mortality rate of the vaccine is orders of magnitude higher that that of the bug. At a nursing home in Auburn NY, no one had died from the virus. NO ONE! Then they got the vaccine. Out of 193 residents who got the vaccine, 24 have died. In two weeks. So much for “safe and effective”.
And never mind the fact the average life expectancy in the US is 78.5 and the average death attributed to (but not necessarily caused by, probably not caused by, in fact) covid is…80.
Everyone needs to shut the fuck up already about this.
Then there’s a mad rush with people trampling each other in the street! Then, “The scoops are coming! The scoops are coming!”.
That doesn’t seem to be happening in my state. They started with hospital workers, then moved to first responders and other healthcare workers. Last week, they said anyone over 80 can make an appointment for one and then today, they said anyone over 70. They seem to be moving through the priority groups pretty fast. CVS is working with the state to go do the nursing homes and skilled nursing centers, so those people are not considered in the general call out.
One factor may be that people aren’t getting it in the numbers they anticipated. That happened in New York. They counted how many healthcare workers they had and anticipated shots for all of them, but only 20% or so actually got the shot. NYC was begging the state to let it go ahead and give the unused shots to others who want it before they expire. I think my state is actually doing that. So it’s working well. Everyone who wants a shot should be able to have one.
I just don’t want people who DON’T want a shot being forced to get one. I’m sure these vaccine manufacturers are seeing it as every gets one: 330 million Americans x 2 shots per person, we need 660 doses. But I am estimating at least half of us will not get one at all unless there is some sort of force involved. As they start to call out younger people, we will see fewer takers. As it should be.
What’s “amusing” here is that the person on the loudspeaker is probably a true believer. Probably believes that if everyone wears a mask for X amount of time, the plague will go away. That person will wake up eventually. Jabs will be administered, mask/jab mandates will increase, and “the cases” will still rise. At some point these people will see the scam for what it is. We just have to keep doing what we’re doing and realize there’s no quick fix for this. We’ll be disparaged for at least another year, maybe two. Patience.
Another thought is to use the loudspeaker against them. Today it’s “Attention! There is a customer in the store without a mask on!” Tomorrow, it could be “two customers…without a mask on” Next week, “six customers….” I know a handful of people who hate the mask but put it on so they don’t rock the boat. I’m sure they’d join me for a group shop for something like this even though they wouldn’t be willing to do it solo.
I think this is exactly what needs to be done, group shopping. Some folks out in CA were doing it for a while but it never got any traction nationwide. Eventually, the group was being stopped cold before they even got through the door at most places. In a Kroger however, this would work well. Do it!
what most folks dont realize is all this could be permanent. I was talking to a ditz head bartender girl last night so excited she hasnt had a cold this year – she said because of masks. huh? then she said I dont face the risk she does. I told her I was a dentist so yeah a lot more potential risk for this scam. like any real biden voters whats your logic here. you want to avoid colds forever
Bingo. The soothing theme of the day today in the MSM regarding “the measures” is “forever”, with undertones of “no jab, no service”, and hints of marketeers should use these things as “selling points for upscale clientele.”
I like your optimism, but in history is there an example where this kind of trend was stopped and didn’t play out to the ugly conclusion? Our current case is a little different in that they are trying to demonize a majority, so that will play out differently than attacking a minority, but I do not think the slide to socialism will be stopped, unfortunately. That’s the real long term threat, and the scamdemic is just a set piece in that march toward that end. It has demonstrated how much our culture was been weakened, and made people ready to be weaponized against each other. I’m more in line with a friend of mine, who once said “No matter how cynical I get, it never seems to be enough”.
Some are comparing mandates to Jim Crow laws. We don’t have those any more. We just need to keep sitting at the front of the bus.
