It is no longer necessary to mandate “masks.” Millions wear them willingly. Some will probably never take them off.
It does not matter to these people that everything us misinformationists said over the course of the past two years has not only been proven to be true but in many cases, acknowledged to be true. For instance:
The Science – which urged the urgent necessity of wearing anything, so long as the wearer’s face was “masked” – has admitted that using a bandana or wood shop dust “mask” to cover your face is a pointless gesture – theater – and never did and never could “stop the spread.”
We know now that the hospitals were never “overwhelmed.” Rather, they were understaffed. Even so, they never “over-flowed.” Even in New York City, where the hospital ship sent by the Orange Man to accommodate the “overflow” sat empty.
We know that the lethality of the virus strongly correlates with age and infirmity. That youth and health constitute a very real form of immunity. That it was therefore never necessary to “lock down” people who weren’t aged or infirm. That The Science deliberately misled people into being terrified of a general threat which never existed.
We know that effective and safe (but open source and inexpensive) treatments – and those who dared to prescribe or even discuss them – were malignantly slandered by The Science.
We know we were lied to about “vaccines” that weren’t “95 percent effective” and weren’t even vaccines. That people who took them could – and did – still get sick and spread sickness, because they weren’t immunized.
That the people who were “hesitant” to take these “vaccines” on the recommendation of the same Science which lied to them about “masks” and the true nature of the threat posed by the virus were right to be “hesitant.”
We know that a vicious campaign of suppression and discrediting has been directed at people such as Dr. Robert Malone, one of the key scientists directly and arguably most specifically involved in the creation of the MRNA technology undergirding the “vaccines” and who for that reason has more standing to discuss them than “scientists” such as the bureaucrat doctor-who-doesn’t-even-practice-medicine.
We know that “vaccinating” children makes as much medical sense as laying a new roof on top of a roof that doesn’t leak. And that forcing kids to wear “masks” is child abuse.
We know all of this – but the Face Diapered Forever don’t want to hear about it. They have an emotional need to keep wearing the symbol of their sickness, which also serves to show solidarity with others who share it. They form a kind of community – in the manner of Hare Krishnas in their saffron robes.
But the Krishnas were never more than a harmless curiosity, a kind of side-show. One saw them at airports – and they seemed happy enough – unlike the “masked,” who marinate in sorrow and fear.
The Krishnas danced and shook their tambourines; asked for a donation, sometimes. But they never demanded you shave your head and don a saffron robe.
Can the rest of us coexist with millions of angry, fulminating Sickness Krishnas?
In my neck of the Woods – Southwest Virginia, about 30 miles from the city of Roanoke – about a third (and sometimes, half) of the people you see at the supermarket are Sickness Krishnas, steadfastly wearing the symbol of their faith. That they have not taken it off at this point indicates they will probably never take it off.
This is logical – according to the strange logic of the Sickness Krishnas. Which is that the possibility of any sickness warrants – requires – the wearing, forever amen. It is probable we’ll have to learn to live with the sight of these Sickness Krishnas practicing their faith, without end.
This – by itself – would merely be unpleasant. Like the sight of a homeless schizophrenic pushing his shopping cart full of dirty clothes and debris down the street. But there were never enough of them to form an army – or support a political movement. As such, they were – like the Krishnas at the airport – something you crossed to the other side of the street to avoid having to deal with.
But millions of Sickness Krishnas? That presents something more unsettling. Millions of people who cling to the tenets of a bizarre faith, immunized against facts which might cause them to question their faith. Who fervently believe that not only are they on the side of the angels but that we – the apostate unmasked – are a mortal threat to their well-being and peace of mind.
We can live with them. But can they live with us?
