Masking the Truth: It’s Not About the Virus, It’s About Obedience — Opinion

Powerful opinion…

Published

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.

UFC Chief Laments Lack of Available Monoclonal COVID Treatments

This, just days after Florida accused the federal government of hoarding the life-saving treatments.

Published

If you were to ask the government about the options that we have for defeating the coronavirus pandemic, you are likely to hear but one side of the story:  Vaccines.

The Biden administration has been unwavering in their support of these inoculations, even going so far as to attempt to install a constitutionally unsound vaccine mandate that took only two months for the Supreme Court to gut.

But there are other options too, induing the widely popular and effective monoclonal antibody treatments.  And, despite the government’s insistence on pushing vaccines on the masses, the Biden administration has also appeared to corner the market on these life-saving medicines…and they’re being awfully stingy with them.

“I bet I could get some f*****g pain pills quicker than I could get monoclonal antibodies,” UFC President Dana White said in regards to the rationing of monoclonal antibodies for treatment of COVID-19 during a press conference on Saturday following the UFC 45 Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

MMA Weekly asked White about a left-wing censorship campaign targeting Joe Rogan under the auspices of “misinformation” involving an “open letter” from assorted medical professionals and academic calling on Spotify, the distributor or Rogan’s eponymous podcast, to “take action” against what they described as “mass-misinformation” which is “medically and culturally dangerous.”

The exchange was lively to say the least.

MMA Weekly asked, “I was wondering what your thoughts were with the 200-plus doctors trying to put pressure on Spotify saying that Joe’s a menace.”

White replied, “Are they really? Well how about this, ever since I came out and said what I did, It’s almost impossible now to get monoclonal antibodies. They’re making it so you can’t get them — medicine that absolutely works, they’re keeping from us. I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this s***, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now, all of a sudden, you can’t dig them up to save your life. The doctors won’t give them to you.”

The criticism arrives amid a flurry of complaints from Florida officials, complaining that the Biden administration simply will not ship these treatments to them, and without providing any reason as to why.

Liberal Elites Doubled Their Wealth as Pandemic Crippled US Economy

The Haves and the Have-Nots are inching very closer to an explosive situation.

Published

on

As time marches forward in its unstoppable, steady way, we are becoming more accustomed to the idea that it’s going to be us versus them for some time far into the future.  The Haves and the Have-Nots are indelibly locked in a struggle for the resources of this planet, wealth among them, and those with the most of it are winning the race.

And by a long shot.

Worse still, they seem to have somehow taken advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to further gorge themselves on the global economy…all while Americans from coast to coast are struggling mightily.

The world’s 10 richest men have more than doubled their fortunes to $1.9 trillion, at a rate of $1.6 billion a day, over the past 12 months, proving elites have largely been spared the misery and financial ruin inflicted on so many by endless enforced lockdowns.

There was an alarming historical context to the numbers as well.

A confederation of charities that focus on alleviating global poverty, Oxfam said members of the globalist financial elites saw their wealth rose more during the pandemic more than it did the previous 14 years, when the world economy was suffering the worst recession since the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

These are some of the main points from Oxfam’s latest report, Inequality Kills, which has been released as global business leaders meet virtually this week for the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

The news is particularly prescient today, with the omicron variant bringing the national labor force to its knees, and as President Joe Biden is offering no discernible financial support to Americans.
