American Sharia - The Church Of The Wuhan Flu
[Buck Throckmorton]

After years of fighting the left’s attempt to impose The Sustainable Organic Church Of The Carbon Apocalypse as America’s official state religion, I really didn’t expect an upstart religion to go from zero to Sharia in just two months, but here we are. How’s everyone enjoying the mandatory religious codes under our new state religion that just showed up from Wuhan?

Social distancing went from “keep a safe distance” to “remain behind closed doors at all times” in about the same time that Fat Tuesday gives way to Lent. And this sure is feeling like Lent in that you must sacrifice pleasures to be an obedient adherent. But unlike Christianity’s Lenten season, where there is no police force nor elected official commanding you to be properly observant, our new state religion will not tolerate anyone being deficiently pious.

There are many parallels that can be drawn between the required Covid observances and traditional religious practices, but the two that stand out the most are Masks and Shutter-At-Home.

Masks = Veils. Don’t misunderstand, if I’m in a fairly crowded store I’ll wear a mask (at least for now) to assure frightened co-shoppers that I’m not going to spread germs on them. And if I were on a plane or in a nursing home, I would certainly wear one just in case I’m an asymptomatic carrier. But the zealotry over masking is long past any health or safety concern. It’s become a public showing of obedience to the rules handed down by our ruling clerisy. A person riding his bike, alone, without wearing a mask is at risk of a public shaming from way too many Americans right now. He is not posing a risk to anyone, but neither is he publicly displaying obedience to the faith. And that will not be tolerated these days.

Shutter At Home = Observing The Sabbath. The high priests of our new religion are ordering police to arrest lone surfers, or dads playing catch with their kids at a park, or couples launching a canoe, etc. Their motivation has nothing to do with preventing the spread of disease. Zero. It is about regulating unapproved pleasure-seeking during a time when piety behind closed doors has been decreed mandatory. If you’re not miserable and pent up behind locked doors, you are a sinner.

And then there are the Church Ladies of our new state religion - the whole Karen meme is about these suddenly empowered secular Church Ladies who live for moments like this. Normally their only joy in life is scolding people for simple sins such as not using canvas grocery bags or perhaps driving a large SUV. Now these humorless vigilantes feel they are deputized to enforce the observance of the shutter-at-home sabbath. A sabbath that goes on day after day, week after week, without any end in sight. Karen could not be happier. It is a near certainty that lockdown-induced chastity being imposed on millions of people is a thought that warms the icy heart of these charmless people. (And yes, there are male Church Ladies. We most commonly refer to them as “journalists")

So go out and live in a manner that that is safe and makes you feel comfortable. But above all else – enjoy life. Publicly and proudly.

And unlike Lent, there is no promise of the Resurrection. Sunday is always #twoweeks away. A moving target. "Without a vision, the people die."

Why?

Read the essay "Coddling of the American Mind" regarding "phobics" avoiding their fears and demanding that they be bubble-wrapped.

My idiot company has fallen for the mask crap hook line and sinker. I will be damned if I change my ways to coddle Karen's fears about SEEFTEE and feeeling SEEF.




They will staple the mask to my bullet-riddled face.

14 It's actually the Church of Science: the Left craves a science establishment that is absolutely dogmatic. The whole thing about global warming/climate change/whatever it will be called tomorrow (because sound scientific theories require good marketing, dont'cha know) cannot under any circumstances and at any cost be questioned, and the Left and its acolytes will simply demand YOU SHUT UP even if you question it even a little bit.

I don't even like arguing over it anymore because this is religion now. (I especially love "climate deniers". You silly geese, I have long recognized something called "climate" exists. And as an astronomy professor once pointed out in an astronomy class that I took: "You can predict climate reasonably well, but you cannot predict the weather."

A lot of people are all into living for the doctors and the "experts" because critical thinking and proportionality are simply not taught by anybody: not by parents, not by teachers, not by absolutely frigging anybody. And if you don't want to live for them? Why, you will feel their wrath and the wrath of the Almighty State upon your head.

Never forget where modern Leftism started: the idea that human nature is a disease that MUST be cured, and that if we just have enough experts and credentialed types to run society for us and make decisions for us, everything will be better in the end. Never mind that this is not the case, this is still widely believed in America and elsewhere, and as a result, a lot of Americans are aching to submit to such rule.

16 Good post here. The mask craze is to me one of the most disturbing aspects of all this, perhaps even more than the stay at home aspect. There is a dehumanizing aspect to it, and those who refrain from wearing masks at all times are othered pretty successfully.

That said, I would wear a mask around my aged parents, or my sister with autoimmune issues. I'm not a beast.

But wearing a mask in an office full of healthy people is overkill. Better to focus on keeping doorknobs and desks clean.

19 This effort to release prisoners due to coronavirus is insane.

A group here in WA called Columbia Legal Services is pushing for every prisoner older than 50 to be released regardless of the crimes they committed.

That would include "people" like Gary fucking Ridgeway, aka the Green River Killer. The WA Supreme Court voted 5-4 against this. That means a one vote swing would have put an infamous serial killer on the street, alongside thousands of other murderers and assorted evil.

Anyway, today I finally received the two CDs I was asking about. One, it turns out, was from France and had to be signed for. There's a customs note on it so apparently it was working through that gateway.

I'm probably being a Pollyanna again, but I'm gonna take my finally getting these CDs, a month after I ordered them, as a sign that here and there, enough things are finally opening back up that the "back-to-almost-normal tsunami" shouldn't be too long off.

No worries! Our lovely criminals will behave themselves with the utmost decorum once they are freed, being the decent, responsible, community-minded types they all are!

Why, they're almost as law-abiding as our fine illegal alien community! Just a tad more rapey and murderery. But we can afford that! After all, we can't expect to build a more just society if we don't allow murderers and rapists to roam free, now can we?

54 The key to longevity of The Church is the heretical #twoweeks movement - those who hope for salvation (destruction of The Church) in literally #twoweeks. Their hopes are rekindled indefinitely with small revelations of the true nature of The Church while The Church continues it consolidation of power. Little noticed is that the 'revelations' are continually recycled and repeated by The Church itself to sate the movements lust for justice.

60 It's turned into a targeted pay-op against Christians and Heritage Americans of European descent. The rules aren't enforced in the black neighborhoods as they throw parties at night and hold other large gatherings. The rules aren't enforced against those who come south of the border as they live illegally 6 plus deep in a 2 bedroom apartment or small house while our leaders still refuse to halt all immigration and close the borders. Muslims are allowed to attend mosques.

I am waiting to see if these limits on travelers persist. WY is not a big winter tourist attraction but in summer tourism is a major economic activity for them and I think they'll have to loosen up by Memorial weekend if they don't want to lose that cash.

78 19 This effort to release prisoners due to coronavirus is insane.

A group here in WA called Columbia Legal Services is pushing for every prisoner older than 50 to be released regardless of the crimes they committed.

That would include "people" like Gary fucking Ridgeway, aka the Green River Killer. The WA Supreme Court voted 5-4 against this. That means a one vote swing would have put an infamous serial killer on the street, alongside thousands of other murderers and assorted evil.

She found out later the race team was a front for a meth operation and the scorch marks were from their lab going kablooie.

Posted by: Braenyard at April 28, 2020 06:28 PM (SWrii)

91 I'm more and more having a different take on things.

For one thing, I'm not at all sure there is such a thing as a left wing ideology. There's nothing but a hatred of anything that they see as normal, and an urge to destroy, or at least hurt it, and all who embrace it.

The other point is that it really isn't centered around the state. The state is just an incidental agent to them. Because government has great powers to destroy, it's natural that they often turn to it. But they don't mind if they use another instrument, they're fine with that. Goolag, Assbook, Karen in charge of a Homeowners' Association; it's all one to them.

They don't even so much want power, as destruction; the abolition of man. I really don't see another way for it to make sense. Power is just the ability to do something. The real goal must be the thing they want done. And I can't see anything coherent as their goal, other than such destruction.

101 Had my yearly physical exam early this morning, and after being poked and prodded and drained of an alarming amount of blood, I went to the local small-mart.

Before the chi-com crud became a thing, me and my darling bride would get up about 0800 on Saturday, drink a pot of coffee, and go to town. We'd stop here and there, do a little looking/shopping, eat lunch, and finally go grocery.

These days, it makes more sense for me to get what we need a coupla times during the week, so that's what I did today.

Noticed that more people here in BFE were wearing masks of some sort, including bandanas, than I saw last week, but no harsh words or looks from those that were veiled towards the rest of us heathens. So I've got that going for me.

Plenty of huevos, white and brown, and bread out the wazoo, all sorts. Beer has never run dry, go figure.

No point to this update, other than I've been drinking some of those suds since I got back to mi casa. There is a meatloaf in the oven, too, so endeavor to persevere!

Ha! This is so true! I ride an hour a day and most of it takes place in 2 parks, and when people see me flying down the path without a mask, they leap off the path like I'm a real physical danger to them. I wore a mask ONCE and it was so hard to breathe I haven't worn it since. Also I'm in Phoenix and it's in the 100s so, hell to the no.

Earlier we were discussing increased deaths on the roads even though there's something like 85% fewer cars driving. I thought of another fun one. Amazon, Walmart, UPS, USPS, ebay, etc. are probably having an enormous increase in deliveries, packaging, shipping, etc.

Imagine the waste from this shutdown.

163 My farrier was out today. No masks were worn. If he'd had one I would have grabbed one but its outdoors so there was no need. Colorado never shut down outdoor activities and most riders are not masked when I've gone out. Some hikers or bikers are, or have one around their neck that they could put on if they get into a crowd for a few minues. There is more traffic every day. Monday most of the state geographically started 'phasing back to work'. Many of the big urban areas have their own Fauci's demanding "stay home longer" May 8 is the date given for that and I don't think folks will comply much at all past then. Nervous folks can still shelter at home with contactless deliveries and whatnot, most folks want to get on with their lives.

Washington is a "shall carry state", but you need a CCW to carry concealed.

But you can put that good old .45 on your belt and walk around for all to see.

Only a few places you can't go - courts, banks, bars, or other public places that have put out notice, such as an NFL football game.

I don't have any charges against me, I don't have any money thanks to Jay Insipid, the bars are closed thanks to Jay Incompetency, and Roger Goddell doesn't have to make a decision for a few more months.

So carrying is the next logical step to protection, judging by that 5-4 WA SC decision. Four judges that don't understand what a serial killer is, or what that means.

Most in masks, nobody noticing those not, "metered" entry which actually was a short line that never stopped moving, so nothingburger, all normal inside. Busy as a Saturday, when you've got both homeowners and contractors.

Stopped at gas station, normal, Iraqi guy was friendly as always. Didn't have a chance to get my update on Mosul, often get his intel from family he still has there.

Decided to pop into Grocery Outlet, for beer and meat (2 key food groups). Excellent deal on blueberries/blackberries. Got some ground beef - meat section normal. Beer was low (for them), still plenty of selection. Overall pretty slow/empty. Staff said it's been that way for a few days.

Everyone was talking, not complaining, but noting how traffic has returned, much getting back to normal. Still don't have to plot, time, and plan a medium cross-county freeway trip (only a requirement the last few years, during the economic boom), but not as empty as just 2 weeks ago.

Guess people around here need to read more and get caught up more in things. Doesn't seem like many people are. Huh.

That is my biggest gripe with illegals. They live under a separate law(less) system. If they do not murder or rob someone they can have kids for free, not pay for the kids education, work for cash, and not worry at DUI.

entire counties now do not do DUI checks cause they catch illegals about 80% of the time.

217 In Chemistry, mechanisms are beat into your psyche. I'm sure it's the same in Engineering.

The Law of Diminishing Returns is the underlying mechanism for the collapse of complex civilizations. We have plenty of data on this.

Cite available, but I've been citing this for a while. And the theory looks solid. Venezuela went tits-up 12 years after a worse Constitution
replaced a solid one. And that was the richest, most advanced society in South America.

Haven't Newsom and Cuomo said they see this as an opportunity to redesign their respective state's economy?

I get the impression they want to bring it all down so that they can reset the economy, remake it into some sort of (Hellish) post-capitalism utopia. They think they can do that if they shut down everything and then change the rules on everyone as they attempt to start their businesses and institutions over from scratch. Sick.

entire counties now do not do DUI checks cause they catch illegals about 80% of the time.

Last time I had to show my passport to re-enter the United States, we also had to endure a d*** measuring exhibition by federal law enforcement as I had to get my bags re-examined by TSA, this AFTER I was cleared where I started.

265 Interesting that you concede you would wear a mask to a nursing home in case you were an asymptomatic carrier.

In saying that you are conceding that some populations are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.

By referencing nursing homes you mean old people. But you'd have to concede that immunocompromised people, people with preexisting lung conditions, and others are just as vulnerable.

And any person you run into in a store could easily fall into one of those categories or be a close family member of someone who is.

So the message here is nonsensical.

You admit you could pass it to people without knowing you have it. You admit that some populations are at greater risk such that you'd change your public behavior.

So what is your point? You can tell when a stranger is vulnerable? I can't. Anyone might have a spouse at home who is undergoing chemotherapy. Anyone might be the sole caregiver or a nursing home aged adult.

What are you saying here?

And I find it weird you all think this is some liberal conspiracy to embarrass President Very Stable Genius, but can't explain how nearly every nation on earth, regardless of the political lean of their current leadership, is doing the same thing we are.

This is not a political issue. Stop making it one. Shut the fuck up and let's try not to kill thousands of us while we wait for a vaccine. Oxford already has a vaccine in testing. It could be ready by the end of the year.

And yet, with 30 million newly unemployed people these plants can't find Americans to work there to keep the supply chains from crashing and a protein shortage from occurring. Same with produce farmers. It's almost as if big Agricultural would rather have Americans suffer and go hungry than hire Heritage Americans to work those jobs to feed Americans.

How many people have had the virus and recovered completely? How many asymptomatic people are or were there? And how many people died as a direct result of the virus? What is the median age of those deaths?

300 Seattle Slough. Why do you believe that a vaccine will help? Every year they develop one, the virus mutates and the vaccine is only partly effective. Why would this one be any different? I'm not hanging my hopes on that being an answer. To the WuFlu. I cannot and shouldn't have to be held hostage to a virus.

What is the success rate of vaccines for each flu season? Serious question. What is the success rate for other corona viruses? Look - people get sick. It's been that way forever. Some of them die. Some of them die of the flu. We cannot hide in our bathrooms in fear, hoping we might not die. None of us get out of here alive. There will always be a cause. I say this as an immune-compromised person, who does not wear a mask or insist that people around me do.

Seriously: Biden has always been a guy who struck me as someone being in love with the idea of being senator. Power. The ability to do whatever he wants. It jives with the reports about naked swimming in front of female SS. I wonder if he even bothers to swim if he has an all male detail.

Some people when they get a bit of power, just get off on exerting that power on others at a whim. Making them do what they want, invading personal space to show who is in charge. This is a pretty flagrant example, but I think it jives.

I understand your point, but the flu every year effects the chemo patients, the elderly and every group you named. So we should do this every year? If so, why haven't we been?


Second, yes it is a political issue. If not, then why are D's in MI trying to limit Gov's orders? Several other states I believe fall into this category.


Third, yes it is political. States have their hand out and let's be honest, not only CV-19 costs, but past costs to even up their balance sheets.


Fourth - political, yes. At first we were told to flatten the curve. Flattening the curve does not, by and large, decrease infections or deaths. It mostly does not allow the healthcare industry to be overwhelmed at the peak. You still will have, all things being equal, the same number of deaths and positive cases. Now the goalposts are testing, vaccinations, etc. And there is no specific vaccination for the flu. It's a hit or miss.

Supposed to go back to work 5/18, but TPTB have pushed the start date
back to 6/1. And we will have to wear masks while working. If someone
shows up on the job without a mask, they won't be allowed to work. I'm
hoping the extra time before starting back, will negate the mandatory

That's what I used to do when I lived in Wichita. Bad hailstorms were a yearly occurrence. You either got comfortable with little craters all over your car or found a good place to stow it. I always drove to a rundown strip mall, rode up on the sidewalk and parked under the overhangs into the empty shops. Of course hail generally meant a tornado warning too but that was a different problem.

That is the exact opposite response.

The measure for government to release their death grip on your God-given Rights is for the number of new cases to fall. If we stopped all testing to 0 then there would be no new cases registered. OTOH, increased testing means that there will be increased confirmed cases, thus the number of cases would increase, not necessarily because the CVD-1984 is spreading, only in that it is now be enumerated.

More testing = more weeks/months of imprisonment.

I've been pretty lucky with dentists (plus my teeth have always been in good shape) and some cute hygienists. There are a gazillion dentists out there, though. My wife always bitches about the dentist and I tell her to find another. She must like to bitch because she never does.

453 >>Heard that he had a family home in RI, so everyone's around the corner from him.

I knew he lived in RI but when I said right around the corner I meant it literally.

corn to soccer games where they do not keep score, while big farm get to

456 I work at a supermarket that made masks mandatory for employees. There's plenty, and they aren't a pain. I do take mine off when not with the customers and after we shut down for the night. No complaints. The one way stickers we put in the aisles are regularly ignored by all and we managed to lose half of them in only a couple of days.
