I have been trying to communicate with the people whose faces I still cannot see. The people who continue to wear that thing styled a “mask.” They apparently cannot see that everyone else is not dying. Yet they continue to walk around stores and even gyms in which they are the only one still wearing their “masks” – as they like to style them. It doesn’t make an impression on them that they are the only one wearing one.
There is fearsome devotion in this.
It’s why I have been bleating – like a sheep – at every one I see. Because, after all, that’s what they are.
I had hoped this sound would penetrate. That there would be a response. Ideally, one of outrage – the usual reaction when publicly insulted. It could be the therapy needed – or at least, a step in the right direction. Anger sometimes leads to awareness. Public ridicule is sometimes necessary to vitiate the ridiculous.
To dissipate evil.
It is very challenging, for instance, to walk about in public wearing a white bedsheet and hood.
People have a right to do so, certainly.
But they don’t have a right to public approbation. Or even polite silence. You wear certain symbols in public – among the people your symbol is intended to convey a hateful message to – and you ought to expect to receive a message in return.
This, by the way, is fundamentally what freedom of speech is all about. You have the right to say whatever you like, including the “saying” of it via symbols. But others have the right to say they don’t like your symbol when they see it.
Indeed, there is an obligation to say one does not like it at all – when to not say so amounts to a kind of silent affirmation of what is being said. Particularly when what is being conveyed is that your freedom – of everything – is under direct attack.
That is why the “masking” of others – the people who would not have worn the disgusting symbols absent being compelled to wear them, in order to go to work or to the store – was such an important form of . . . symbolic speech. Of silenced – of coerced – speech.
Those who did not want to wear the “mask” – and thereby express their disagreement with everything “mask” wearing conveyed – were made to wear them, so as to convey the impression of general agreement.
To efface – to silence – their disagreement.
They were not permitted to show – or even to say – that they disagreed. Many were punished for expressing disagreement. Even now, it still continues – as in the recent case of Levis (the clothing company) executive Jennifer Sey, who was forced out of her job for daring to say she opposes the “masking” of kids – and why. Levis even tried to buy her silence via a $1 million dollar severance package, conditional upon her signature, affixed to a non-disclosure agreement, that she never speak publicly about the reasons for her termination.
The people made to ”mask” were worse-than-ridiculed. They were literally made into the very thing they knew deserved to be ridiculed.
And of course, all of this “masking” led directly down the cattle chute to tens of millions of Jabbings – which can never be taken off. No small number of the Jabbed have died, something that can never be taken back.
“Masking” can never be taken lightly, never allowed to pass as something silly but basically benign – like wearing a dunce cap out in public.
No other single thing has resulted in – has facilitated – so much harm to so many people as the wearing of that loathsome device, the symbol of an evil so fearful, so enormous, that it must be openly regarded as such in order to defeat it.
It is not revenge to ridicule the people who favored “masking” – who continue to “mask.”
It is necessary – so as to prevent such people from ever doing this to us, again.
The tactic has worked very effectively with regard to the wearing of white bedsheets and hoods in public. It is a sight rarely seen, a salutary thing. The people who want to wear white bedsheets and hoods know they are despised – objects of disgust and ridicule. They are losers – and not many people want to be seen as that.
The same healthy tonic could work miracles here, too. If the “maskers” could only be embarrassed sufficiently . . . made to feel the shame they deserve, which they worked relentlessly to impose on us all.
Never forget this.
Do not fall for the false equivalence that us shaming them is the same as them shaming us (for not “masking”). There is a big difference. They were wrong. We are not.
Objective reality matters. Sanity matters. Not abiding evil matters more.
So when you see a “masker,” consider speaking to it in a language it may understand.
It just might help.
