Thursday News Roundup: Biden Goes Berserk, Portland Riots Mount, de Blasio Goes Full-on Nazi

Here is an angry old white man exercising his white privilege and verbally assaulting a Black reporter who is just trying to do his job. – That’s how the corrupt hacks at CNN and the New York Times would describe the video below if it involved a Republican.

But hey, it’s Joe Biden, so the only thing that gets reported out of this incident is that Biden was trying to “clarify” the fact that he has not ever taken a cognitive test despite his claim a couple of weeks back that he is “tested all the time.”

Here’s the clip:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Oh, but it gets better. – Here is the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee explaining how he would deal with China if he wins the election:

If that doesn’t give you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, nothing will.

This is happening in Australia. Not Russia. Not China. Not Venezuela. Australia. – It will eventually happen in the United States if we, the people don’t make this madness stop. Watch this video featuring Katie Hopkins and realize that this is nothing more than the logical conclusion of where Democrat governors – an a few Republicans, too  – want to take us:

An entire major city, locked in their homes, unable to travel more than 5 km, unable to go to the grocery store with anyone else including their children, all schools and child care centers closed, all non-essential businesses closed, everything shut down for six solid weeks due to the deaths of 7 elderly patients, all of whom were over the age of 70 and some of whom probably did not die to to COVID-19.

If you think this cannot happen in America, you just have not been paying close enough attention to what has already been happening.

For example, here is what communist Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti is now doing in Los Angeles with the full approval of communist Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom:

But it gets even worse in New York City. – Andrew Cuomo, the ghoul Governor of New York who is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers in the state’s nursing homes, has been bragging for weeks now about how the worst of the viral gift from China is over for his state.

Ok, fine. But if that’s the case, why is the Big Doofus, New York City’s communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, implementing Nazi-style check points at which his cops are wasting their time checking the papers of everyone entering and exiting the city?

From a report at NBC4 New York:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City would start implementing checkpoints across the five boroughs to help enforce Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s quarantine order for travelers from viral hotspots, citing the ongoing national COVID threat.

The measure announced Wednesday is the first significant effort by New York City specifically to help enforce the 14-day quarantine for travelers from 34 states and Puerto Rico. In revealing it, de Blasio said the state was “absolutely right” to impose the travel restriction in the first place. Cuomo announced it in late June.

The governor has said the quarantine itself is imperfect and Mayor de Blasio admitted New York City’s new enforcement plan has some caveats as well. But the idea, the mayor said, is to send a strong message to people coming in.

“The checkpoints are going to send a very powerful message that this quarantine is serious. Even if we can’t reach every single person I think it’ll get the message across,” de Blasio said. “We don’t want to penalize people. We want to educate them, make sure they’re following the rules.

[End]

Thus, the descendants of thousands of Holocaust survivors who still live in New York City are getting a real-life taste of the kinds of crackdowns their ancestors experienced. Right here in America, where their descendants fled after the War.

Surreal.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the “peaceful protesters” continued their efforts to destroy Portland. – Hey, at least the police are now being allowed to use tear gas. In Democrat-run cities in America today, that is what we call “progress.”

The intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo is as always on the ground getting the truth out while the corrupt corporate media continues to lie about it. As usual, the riots were still ongoing as I began to compile this piece at 5:30 CT. Here are some highlights of the hijinks and shenanigans these “peaceful” kids were engaged in:

Hey, at least they’re attacking a local police precinct instead of the federal courthouse now.

So, you might be wondering how the leadership of communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and his fellow communist Democrats on the city council is working out for the people of the city in terms of violent crime. Well, Mr. Ngo is on top of that, too.

Check this out:

So, just like New York City; just like Chicago; just like Minneapolis; just like Seattle. All Democrat cities run by communist Democrat Mayors and city councils dominated by communist Democrats.

There’s a pattern here, folks, and it isn’t hard to detect. Well, unless you’re a Democrat or a corrupt reporter, that is.

That is all.

Candace Owens: “This is the Greatest Rigging of an American Election”

Candace Owens, the great young Black conservative political activist who helped to start the #WalkAway movement that will likely lead to President Trump receiving a significantly higher percentage of the Black vote this year, had some really smart things to say about this election in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation yesterday.

Owens’ view is that COVID-19 and the panic around it created by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the corporate news media amounts to the “greatest rigging of an American election” we have ever seen. At this point, it is pretty hard to argue with that assessment.

Here are several clips from that interview, followed by a transcript of some of her key quotes from it:

Transcript:

“Coronavirus is the greatest rigging of an American election that has ever taken place— and we are all unwitting participants.

“We don’t see the candidates, right? The candidates are not allowed to travel. They can’t talk about their policies. Who knows? They’re already saying now, at The New York Times, that there might not be a debate.

“The Left is completely hiding their campaign. That is their strategy: ‘We’re going to hide Joe Biden so you never have to meet him. And, at the same time, we’re going to tell the current president that he can’t he can’t travel – but, if he does any events, if he has a room full of people, that it’s all dangerous and against safety measures and it’s not right.

“Then, you have them talking about mail-in voting, which we know is corrupt. We know it’s corruptible. We know that it allows for tons of rigging.

“Now, they’ve crashed the economy and forced a ton of people that maybe would have considered some conservative voting, it they had a job, their lives were together.

“Well, now they’re relying of the Left’s Socialist system. They’re relying on stimulus checks. And, that means they’re going to be more inclined to vote for someone who has more Socialist perspective.

“They’re not allowed to work, right? So that naturally puts them out of the category of voting that they maybe would’ve been in if things had been normal, right?

“So, we see all this stuff happening and we’re supposed to think that November is not being impacted by all of this.

“Of course it is.”

[End]

Yes, of course it is.

Equally as compelling were Owens’ comments on how leftist Democrats have “destroyed Black America”, after the interviewer asked her about a flyer distributed for years by the Museum of African American History that attributed all manner of family values-kinds of things as being exclusively “white” and thus, things Black Americans should shun.

Here are some of the quotes from that passage:

“Because they’re trying to destroy Black America. I shouldn’t even say ‘trying.’ They’ve successfully destroyed Black America. And they’ve done it through culture. They’ve done it by telling kids that there is something wrong with aspiring to do things right.

“You can see this now in certain schools – they are trying to teach kids that there is something wrong with even trying to learn to speak proper English. They’re saying that that is wrong and racist. So, they’re talking about introducing courses in Ebonics – slang – that Black Americans need to develop their own sub-culture apart from White American culture.

“The problem is that this idea of separation and not actually rising to the challenge, and getting smarter and competing and learning proper English…there has never been any group of people that have lagged behind another group of people and gotten ahead by this method.

“A great example of this is David Hume, when he challenged the Scottish people, when they were trailing behind the English people for so long, he turned to the Scottish people and he said to them in the 17th century, you know, we’ve got to learn proper English. Rather than him saying that having to learn proper English is wrong and it’s racist, they rose to the challenge and within a couple of decades the Scots actually passed the English in engineering and science.

“Because they rose to the challenge.”

[End]

Great stuff there.

That is all.

EPIC: Jim Jordan Pummels a Dissembling Anthony Fauci in Friday Hearing

Anthony Fauci, the most clear and present danger to the survival of the American Republic today, appeared before some committee or other in the House of Representatives Friday morning. There he had to face a Jim Jordan who was armed for bear, determined to expose Fauci for the raging hypocrite he truly is.

I don’t have time to transcribe the clip below, but you should take the time to watch and hear it. As you do, you will see Fauci repeatedly refuse to admit to the obvious fact that the enormous crowds of protesters and rioters we saw throughout the month of June and have continued to see in lesser numbers throughout July helped to spread the Wuhan virus. You will also see Fauci claim that he never opines about whether or not certain specific group activities – like going to church or going to the gym or going out to dinner – should be allowed or banned.

As you watch him make these claims to Mr. Jordan, remember that Fauci has in fact issued such opinions many, many times. He has in fact advocated that church attendance be drastically limited. He has in fact advocated for the closing of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, sporting events and many, many other types of businesses. His pronouncements and opinions have in fact served as the very basis for putting millions of working Americans out of jobs and destroying hundreds of thousands of American businesses over the past four months.

But, when challenged by Jordan to simply admit that enormous crowds of rioters, looters and bombers obviously would help to spread the virus, Fauci suddenly finds himself unable to express an opinion.

Watch:

This little man is a menace to your freedoms and to our very way of life.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Americans Must Stop Listening to Fauci and Birx

The greatest deflection tactic in American history took place on Thursday. – Here it is:

Note the time stamp on that tweet. It was put out by the President 16 minutes after the Trump Administration released the GDP numbers for the second quarter. Those numbers weren’t good; but then, no one expected them to be good, given that the second quarter was when our country went literally insane on the catastrophic advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci (more on that little menace to society in a moment).

President Trump obviously didn’t want to see the corrupt new media mis-reporting on those numbers as the lead story for the next several days, so he put out the single most magnificent troll tweet since Twitter was invented. Every corrupt reporter and editor and talking head and idiot Democrat/communist in America immediately exploded with rage and hysteria, which was exactly the reaction the President had wanted to achieve. Coverage of the down economic quarter pretty much evaporated.

Late in the day, his goal achieved, the President explained the tweet by basically saying, ‘hey, I was just asking a question.’

Hilarious. He’s the cat-person with a laser pointer; the corrupt news media is his cat.

Birx and Fauci roll out their next tool to control your behavior. – In a TV interview on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci told the corrupt talking head that “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it.” Thus does the media campaign to pressure governors and the President to require goggles or eye shields begin.

On Thursday, the Queen of Scarves, Dr. Deborah Birx, joined in the brainwashing campaign, saying “Here’s the thing about the face shield in addition to the mask: the mask is to protect others. The thing about the face shields – we think that that could protect the individuals and that it would decrease the ability for them to touch their eyes and spread [the] virus as well as those droplets coming towards them.”

Remember: These are the very same two “doctors” who just 3 months ago were telling you not to wear masks because they are ineffective at stopping the spread of a virus and are actually harmful to your own health. But now, masks have somehow become the key to everything. You must wear them, not only when you enter a store or restaurant or gym or any other public facility, but anytime you freaking go outside.

It’s not about protecting your heath, it’s about controlling your behavior.  These are not just random remarks by these two “doctors”: They are intentional, calculated statements designed to start another media-led panic. Why? Because the “case” numbers related to the China virus are once again falling.

You are the frog, and they are boiling you.

Speaking of media-led panic campaigns… – The corrupt national media will refuse to report it, but their panic campaign to demonize HydroxyChloroquine took another big hit on Thursday.

From a piece at the Federalist:

The Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal that published a 96,000-subject study indicting the efficacy of the politically controversial hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has retracted its findings that the malaria medication led to an increased risk of death.

“Today, three of the authors of the paper, ‘Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”, have retracted their study,” The Lancet said in a retraction statement Thursday. “They were unable to complete an independent audit of the data underpinning their analysis. As a result, they have concluded that they ‘can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources.”

“We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,” the authors of the study wrote.

The study was first published in May and was the largest ever conducted analyzing the impacts of hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump was reported to be taking the medication as a precautionary measure following possible exposure to the virus.

Legacy media meanwhile, with its animus for Trump, used the study to attack the president and his physician for taking a medication that had anecdotally shown potential promise in treatment of infection while posing few risks. Trump had previously touted the possible benefits of the medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use during press briefings to reporters who pinned the death of an uninfected man who drank fish tank cleaner outside of medical guidance on the president.

[End]

Let’s all remember that Dr. Fauci himself – who praised HCQ’s effectiveness as a treatment for viral infections in 2005, and said he would himself prescribe it in early March – used this specific study as a means of bashing HCQ:

The man is a menace. He is a menace to our entire society. He has used his position and the media idolatry towards him as a platform to lie to us repeatedly and with malice aforethought. We will never be able to return to normalcy as a society until we shun him and Dr. Birx and reassert our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Speaking of HCQ… – Fauci, Birx and their evil media minions took another big blow where HCQ is concerned yesterday. In Ohio, the Pharmacy Board withdrew a rule banning the use of HCQ, which was entirely motivated by political hatred towards President Trump. Why are the rescinding it? Because of complaints from actual, real doctors who want to prescribe it to their patients and are having great success with it as a treatment for COVID-19.

From a story at the Butler County Journal News in Ohio:

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy withdrew a rule preventing hydroxychloroquine from being sold in the state as treatment for coronavrius after Gov. Mike DeWine called for the board to halt the rule.

As a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Gov. DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has withdrawn proposed rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code,” read a statement from the board. “Therefore, prohibitions on the prescribing of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in Ohio for the treatment of COVID-19 will not take effect at this time.”

The board will reexamine the rule with the help of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts and stakeholders to determine the next step.

The rule, which was scheduled to go into effect today, would prohibit pharmacies from selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for coronavirus unless the use is approved by the board’s executive director. The rule would also void all previous approvals of the drug.

The governor said in a statement Thursday that he agreed with Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision to treat the virus with hydroxychloroquine should be between a doctor and patient.

[End]

Again, we must as a people ignore the edicts of Fauci and Birx, who are nothing more than tools of people who hate you and would rather you were dead. We can never return to normalcy until we shun them as the menaces to our society that they truly are.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Fauci’s Errant First Pitch, Trump Cancels Convention, and the Truth About the Portland Riots

Not to be mean, but…well, yeah, ok, to be mean because this little menace to society richly deserves it. – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Democrat operative who has worked so hard to destroy our nation over the last four months with his constantly-shifting, always-wrong narrative about the Wuhan Virus, threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game last night.

Very predictably, it all went very, very, very wrong. Watch:

So, 15 feet short and 27 feet outside – every bit as accurate as anything he has had to say about the viral plague from China. The man is consistent if nothing else.

Bob Uecker Just A Bit Outside GIFs | Tenor

But keep your social distance and wear those masks, folks! – Here’s the little menace later, setting an example for the rest of America:

Yeah, you’ll never see that photo on CNN or MSNBC.

Dr. Fauci does not just kowtow to hypocrite Democrats, he personifies them.

But never fear, the little menace was still on the job earlier in the day, doing everything he can to continue to destroy America’s economy and society, in an interview with MarketWatch.

Here’s the headline of the story:

Anthony Fauci tells MarketWatch: I would not get on a plane or eat inside a restaurant

Holy crap.

 

Speaking of #EnemiesOfThePeople, here is how the New York Times is lying to its readers about the Portland riots today:

And here is the truth about the riots and the rioters, brought to you each and every day by a real journalist, Andy Ngo:

You will never see any of that reported by the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the three broadcast network news.

Enemies of the people, one and all.

This is hysterically funny. – Watch Charlie Hurt’s face as the dimwitted Marie Harf tries to avoid the question from Harris Faulkner, and find some way to blame Republicans for what is happening in cities Democrats have run into the ground for decades:

Honestly, it’s hard to know how she manages to dress herself each day. Maybe she doesn’t.

 

The climate alarmists are going after the polar bears again. – The good news is that 20 years ago, the climate alarmists assured us that all the arctic polar bears would be gone in 15 years because of “global warming”. That not only did not happen, but the population of polar bears actually multiplied.

The bad news is that the climate alarmists – supported as always by a slavish, corrupt news media establishment – are back going for polar bear gold again. Only this time, instead of just giving themselves a mere 15 years to be wrong, they’re giving themselves an entire lifetime so that none of them will be around to be mocked when the polar bears are still doing just fine in the year 2100.

Take a gander at this:

Yeah, that’s not going to happen, either. Just your dishonest climate alarm community, supported by your corrupt, fake news media, at work.

The lies and corruption never end.

Speaking of lies and corruption, watch for a Wuhan Virus miracle in Florida. – At his press conference on Thursday, President Trump announced that the RNC is cancelling the in-person part of the Republican National Convention, which was to be held in Jacksonville, Florida.

Thus, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media have achieved their goal. Don’t be surprised if the number of new COVID-19 “cases” suddenly begins to fall in the weeks to come.

Just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were obligated to elect a Black president in 2008; and just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were somehow obligated to elect a woman president in 2016; you are being brainwashed today to utterly and completely ignore all of the real data and science about the Wuhan Virus for purely political reasons.

This is nothing new, but it does grow more intense and focused and transparently dishonest with time.

That is all.

Celebrate: Navarro Op-Ed Signals White House Break With Fauci

Peter Navarro, the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy for President Donald Trump, grew weary of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s grandstanding and chronic flip-flopping in public long ago. Back in April, Axios reported on a confrontation Navarro had with the little menace to American society during a Coronavirus Task Force meeting at the White House:

Toward the end of the meeting, Hahn began a discussion of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which Trump believes could be a “game-changer” against the coronavirus.

  • Hahn gave an update about the drug and what he was seeing in different trials and real-world results.
  • Then Navarro got up. He brought over a stack of folders and dropped them on the table. People started passing them around.
  • “And the first words out of his mouth are that the studies that he’s seen, I believe they’re mostly overseas, show ‘clear therapeutic efficacy,’” said a source familiar with the conversation. “Those are the exact words out of his mouth.”

Navarro’s comments set off a heated exchange about how the Trump administration and the president ought to talk about the malaria drug, which Fauci and other public health officials stress is unproven to combat COVID-19.

  • Fauci pushed back against Navarro, saying that there was only anecdotal evidence that hydroxychloroquine works against the coronavirus.
  • Researchers have said studies out of France and China are inadequate because they did not include control groups.
  • Fauci and others have said much more data is needed to prove that hydroxychloroquine is effective against the coronavirus.
  • As part of his role, Navarro has been trying to source hydroxychloroquine from around the world. He’s also been trying to ensure that there are enough domestic production capabilities inside the U.S.

Fauci’s mention of anecdotal evidence “just set Peter off,” said one of the sources. Navarro pointed to the pile of folders on the desk, which included printouts of studies on hydroxychloroquine from around the world.

  • Navarro said to Fauci, “That’s science, not anecdote,” said another of the sources.

Navarro started raising his voice, and at one point accused Fauci of objecting to Trump’s travel restrictions, saying, “You were the one who early on objected to the travel restrictions with China,” saying that travel restrictions don’t work. (Navarro was one of the earliest to push the China travel ban.)

[End]

Yesterday, in response to Fauci’s continuing efforts to undermine national policy in his myriad media appearances, Navarro penned a sterling op-ed for USA Today. As is his habit, Navarro is devastatingly succinct and precise in laying out the many reasons why Fauci deserves to be ignored in the nation’s ongoing efforts to effectively deal with the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

From the op-ed:

Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.

In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.

When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry.

When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk.

When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks.

[End]

There’s more, and you should go read the piece in full. The simple fact of the matter – as we have pointed out repeatedly here – is that Fauci has yet to get any single aspect of this viral gift from China right. As Navarro points out, the little menace has been wrong about everything, often with catastrophic results to our society.

Even now, Fauci is out in the media declaring that it would be “dangerous” for the U.S. to reopen schools this fall when literally every other nation on earth is opening their own schools and getting their kids back to learning. As clearly exhibited by his multiple love letter to Hillary Clinton and all of the selfies he has had taken with Clinton, Pelosi and other leftist luminaries, Fauci is nothing more or less than a tool of the Democrat Party who has worked from Day 1 to undermine America’s response to the virus, in the process intentionally undermining America itself.

Fauci himself admitted last week that he has not been allowed to brief the President in more than 2 months, and the fact that Navarro was allowed to author that op-ed clearly signals that his relationship with the White House has been officially severed.

That, folks, is a very good thing for our country.

The Corona Panic Porn Just Never Ends

California Governor Gavin Newsom, a despicable Democrat, tanked a major stock rally today by announcing he was re-closing his state. Newsom attributes his latest irrational, probably illegal action to his state’s rising number of “cases” of COVID-19, a number everyone knows is vastly inflated and fraudulent.

As Newsom takes this action motivated solely by politics, the folks at the Daily Caller thought it was important to remind readers what was taking place in Los Angeles a month ago, because Newsom says this is still ok.:

Oh. Any questions?

Meanwhile, in other COVID-19 news… – Alex Berenson has an important CORONAPANIC UPDATE from Florida:

Oh.

Remember the goal in Florida is to inflate the numbers so high that they justify cancelling the GOP National Convention. So, expect them to go much, much higher in the next 2-3 weeks.

And a fair warning from @EthicalSkeptic about the flood of “new” deaths to come, as states that have withheld that data will now start claiming it is all “covid-related” to keep the panic going:

Despicable.

But none of this fits the narrative, so, carry on.

Check this out:

It is of course the first time the President has been seen up close in public wearing a mask. He was photographed in late May wearing a mask during a tour of a Ford factory. No doubt all the fake journalists and other talking heads will obsess over it for hours on the Sunday talk shows tomorrow.

Masking the Truth: It’s not about the Virus, It’s about Obedience

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

The Left has sprinted past what we previously thought was a line in the sand between personal freedom and forced, state dictates for personal behavior.

The breach of that boundary has led to numerous other fundamental rights crumbling to dust along with our historical monuments.

There is still time to restore those boundaries and our rights but only if we start telling the truth en masse and defying unjust edicts from lawless lawmakers.  Sadly, we can no longer depend that there will be enough lawful lawmakers to protect our liberties. We must protect them.

Coronavirus is still being used as an excuse to crack down on our freedoms despite false projections that even the CDC dramatically ratcheted down months ago.

Democrat governors and other politicians are refusing to relinquish the “emergency powers” they have awarded to themselves that allowed them to continue lock downs and restrictions of citizens and their businesses on their whim.

As if they somehow thought of it independently, they continue to act simultaneously to tighten their demands and micromanage our lives.  They have now moved from suggesting to demanding that we all, no matter our health, risk level, or opinion are to be forced to wear masks in public. What a perfect and ever-present reminder that we are not in charge of our lives. They are.

Even weak-willed Republicans like Governor Greg Abbott of Texas have become lost in this masquerade.

It doesn’t matter whether masks work or make sense. It only matters that it has been a wildly successful tool for obedience training in collectivism for Americans. Socialism can’t take hold without it.

The avowed and secret socialists among us are engaged in an all-out battle to punish America for being built precisely on that individualism and for flourishing because of a constitution that was created to protect it.

While Democrat tacticians have their Democrat politicians ramping up threats of fines and jail time for refusing to wear a mask, they’re also pushing the idea that masks are “cool.”  There is a whole new cottage industry that is marketing masks as an opportunity to make a “signature” fashion statement. There’s nothing quite like superficial individuality to “mask” one’s prostration to serfdom and conformity.

Savvy watchers of the Left were suspicious early on when they noticed a familiar Leftist tactic being warmed up and served for public consumption. They went to work making it socially acceptable to vilify dissenters and brand them as selfish. They rush to reward it.

How dare anyone question the efficacy of masks or the use of bullying and intimidation to force Americans to comply?  How dare anyone care about their own personal freedom and the freedom of their fellow citizens, even those too ignorant or complacent to care?  “We’re in the middle of a pandemic!” They scold, self-righteously.

Masks create further alienation and suspicion between friends, neighbors and business associates. They muzzle us while helping snitches to easily identify dissenters.

We have seen how deadly the combination of collectivism and social bullying can be. It can often lead to mob rule and violence. At that point, politicians don’t have to worry about enforcing their unconstitutional orders. The mob does it for them.

Masks also blur the lines between criminals and law-abiding citizens. We are indistinguishable from Antifa and other groups who now commit heinous crimes in plain sight and with impunity. The backward subliminal message is that masked people are law-abiding and unmasked people are criminals.

After watching the same Democrat politicians refuse to impose their own orders on rioters, looters and vandals, their credibility is lower than the fatality rate of the coronavirus.

In light of such a blatant dereliction of duty to protect their innocent constituents, they still have the chutzpah to claim that it is compassion that compels them to order us to wear masks.

The good news is that a growing number of people believe that these suffocating orders are ridiculous and even dangerous. The bad news is that most still only whisper it in muffled tones behind their cloth masks.

As we have seen, complying with the orders of authoritarians only brings more authoritarianism. Masks will continue to be a major battleground on which we can beat it back.

Previously polite, law-abiding citizens must unmask themselves and let their voices be heard. Unlike their oppressive opposition, they have little interest in vilifying those who choose to wear a mask for their own reasons.

In the 1982 film, Ben Kingsley portrayed Gandhi as saying, “100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.”

It’s time to stop cooperating.
