MSNBC Clowns Mask-Shame People Out for a Walk, Until a Passer-By Points Out That Half of the MSNBC Crew Isn't Wearing Masks

The guy on camera -- the guy performing -- is wearing the mask.

The crew you can't see? The people who aren't involved in the Health Panic Theatrical Production? Half of them aren't wearing masks. Including the cameraman.

Here's a hopeful sign that the media plays as negative: A vaccine can only be tested by noting how many, if any, of the vaccinated test group contract the illness they're vaccinated against over a period of months.

But covid is now infecting so few people that researchers worry that their vaccine studies will provide "no result" because there will not be a meaningful difference between those vaccinated and those unvaccinated.

An Oxford University vaccine trial has only a 50 per cent chance of success because coronavirus is fading so rapidly in Britain, a project co-leader has warned.

Don't get me wrong; I'd like to know if the vaccine works.

But... if the reason we can't tell if the vaccine works or not is that the virus is self-extinguishing, is that really a cause for "warning'?

There's no way this technology will remain innocuous.

You can guarantee that eventually contact-tracing data will be either

or

- Used by totalitarian governments to track, monitor and spy upon their citizens.

All for -- what? -- the most marginal benefit, if it's a benefit at all.

I don't need an app to tell me that two weeks ago I passed a guy on the street who later got a disease. I just assume already -- and have always assumed, long before Covid-19 -- that half the people I pass on any street are infected with various diseases and exuding infectious agents, That's par for the course when you live in a city. You just hope that your immune system can handle the constant barrage of pathogens.

But it kind of also just underlines how ridiculous, incompetent, dishonest, and dangerous the "public health" authorities are almost everywhere. And how pathetically gullible, ignorant, easily manipulated are the masses, including in "advanced" countries.

Not talking about taking some precautions in the face of limited info/alarming info - talking about taking measures not indicated by one's own doctrine and practice for a given situation, then clinging bitterly to them, then flailing around with ludicrous "phased" changes to policies that you should know have no impact to begin with.

The problem is that this data is already recorded by the cellphone carrier. If the contact tracing shenanigans gets rolling then they may work at accessing this metadata directly for those who don't download the app. Nor like researchers aren't already studying anonymized cellphone movement (such as the tracking of spring breakers traveling home from FL).

You really don't want to be tracked, then leave the phone at home or get a faraday bag (and only pull out the phone in places you are OK with being seen.

I think Twitter is a net plus for us.

All the media are on Twitter and spend hours of their time every day there
Only 22% of Americans are on it
73% of those are under 50 (in the USA, it's an equal split above/ below 50)
60% of those identify as Democrats (compared to roughly 30% in the real world)
And-- here's the kicker--10% of those on there generate 80% of all tweets.

So the media and the dems think they're reading the pulse of America by reading Twitter.
Instead, they're playing recordings of cheers from their choir.

It works for us because
1) the people who want to hear Trump hear him
2) the Democrats have quarantined themselves from reality

When we learned about this device, we were all very shocked and were grateful to live in a time with much less barbarity.

Now I'm looking around at cancel culture, the constant coordinated lying about and hounding of people of the wrong political persuasion, that woman in The Ramble who faked being panicked and threatened by a man who asked her to leash her dog and the resulting backlash that cost her her dog and her job etc. This reporter who is trying to shame people into wearing masks, even outside when you're not near others.

A private organization, the DNC, was attacked--not America. And yet, Popadopoulis was grilled on what he knew about the DNC hack. This was deadly serious for these servants of the DNC.

They thought they could use all the power that the state had to find and punish the offense against the DNC.

GTFOOH with "America was attacked"!

NO--your party SUCKS--and you screwed over one of your candidates for a party loyalist, for the lefty-cred his endorsement of that candidate might yield. That's why you let him run as a Democrat because you wanted an endorsement from somebody with lefty cred.

And you were EXPOSED as the fix-is-in party that you are and so fewer people voted for your party and candidate overall. So was a lot of the media exposed as DNC lackies.

But the game in Washington is a game of Power and Power that comes from Messaging, it's long past "The Rule of Law". If it were the FEC would be making the major news orgs pay for donations in kind. And shoveling taxpayer money to cronies would be prohibited. (But even that would be warped around warped definitions sooner or later.)

Farewell to Tarwathie
Adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimmond
I bid you farewell
I'm bound off for Greenland
And ready to sail
In hopes to find riches
In hunting the whale

Farewell to my comrades
For a while we must part
And likewise the dear lass
Who first won my heart
The cold coast of Greenland
My love will not chill
And the longer my absence
More loving she'll feel

Our ship is well rigged
And she's ready to sail
The crew they are anxious
To follow the whale
Where the icebergs do float
And the stormy winds blow
Where the land and the ocean
Is covered with snow

The cold coast of Greenland
Is barren and bare
No seed time nor harvest
Is ever known there
And the birds here sing sweetly
In mountain and dale
But there's no bird in Greenland
To sing to the whale

There is no habitation
For a man to live there
And the king of that country
Is the fierce Greenland bear
And there'll be no temptation
To tarry long there
With our ship bumper full
We will homeward repair

Farewell to Tarwathie
Adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimmond
I bid you farewell
We're bound off for Greenland
And ready to sail
In hopes to find riches
In hunting the whale

Yet there are people who wear them while alone in their cars or walking on a nearly deserted street. The mind boggles.

On the contrary, the US peak was over a month after the last state to shut down did so. For a bug with about a two week incubation. Which demonstrates the shutdown didn't help.
The peak also preceded the universal masking orders, which means that's clearly just an effort to take credit for the bug burning itself out as it was always going to do.

I've always been curious about the idea that it's somewhat like "Look what we made everybody do".

Now, I think the students of the Frankfort School have been consistently frustrated with how much resistance America has put up against Marxism. We almost refuse to define our system with much more than marginal redistribution as Marxism would prescribe.

So I think they like to test the waters every so often to see what they what *other* ideas they can get into our head and practice.

This is probably one of the biggest Collapse-the-System wins they have ever pulled off. And it indicates the country might be closer to boiling the frog.

I really think gaslighting is sort of "What can we make them believe?" and changing our way of life is "What can we make them do?"

Are the bubbles coming up fast enough?

My understanding is that it is supposed to protect others from you (ie., your fluids, e.g., when you sneeze or cough), in case you are infected but perhaps asymptomatic. (Who knows how effective it is, but the theory makes sence to me.) Which is why I don't mind wearing a mask in a building with other people.

But hell no, I'm not wearing one when I'm in my car or walking outside. And I'm not screaming like a banshee at anyone for not wearing one. (And I might actually be in a vulnerable population.)

You don't understand lake boat culture. Some of the guys have to compare. Some of the gals notice too. Very important for social status. Often who has the 'fastest boat' can pass on their genes to the next generation. This helps ensure that the next generation again has a 'fastest boast'. At any time you can be assured the fastest boat is faster than the grandfathers. After millennia the impact is readily observable.

Have mask ordinances been enforced against them in the past, though? I thought they got the de facto commie exemption from laws and regulations in most jurisdictions where they operate.

311 I mean, when a conservative says anything about a challenge from a black person, the News that Kares is always too quick to move it to a synonym of "uppity".

CTG is an *interviewer*. Interviewers have *questions*. Sometimes a few, sometimes a lot. They certainly aren't beholden to any politician to have their preferred level of questions.

So, CTG *simply* suggested he had a lot of questions, as an individual interviewer might. And Joe is now committing the unforced error of scathing the sort of comeliness of an interviewer having more questions than Biden prefers.

To which he responds "If you don't know...you ain't black".

"Come visit us" or "We'll have questions" (as an interviewer *might*) is not the context of a "You ain't black" joke.

I have bee saying that what Joe said is not "racist", but the more Joe spins the more he's elaborating it as a type of racism.

318 On the contrary, the US peak was over a month after the last state to shut down did so. For a bug with about a two week incubation. Which demonstrates the shutdown didn't help.
The peak also preceded the universal masking orders, which means that's clearly just an effort to take credit for the bug burning itself out as it was always going to do.

Like when it's raining, and you gather round a circle and start chanting at the sky to stop crying on you.

Eventually it does.

Or my favorite, your dog sees the mailman coming, dog starts barking, mailman goes away. To the dog, it's the barking what did it.

You can't convince people who live by superstitions, that their mumbo jumbo doesn't actually, you know, do anything.

319 I've heard that if your asymptomatic that you aren't really contagious or are a lot less contagious than if you are actually showing symptoms. probably Because you aren't sneezing and coughing which is what really spreads the virus.

320 I am going to call out my favorite OAN anchorette (Lilia Fifield) for this. In her Instagram account, she calls out that (among various other Millennial things) she is a TV host, a news anchor, a model and an actress.

The last one is key. These people are actors. That's it. Nothing more or less than that. They aren't journalists. They aren't reporters. They read words of a teleprompter on the air. The requirements are being pretty and speaking clearly with a decent cadence. Actors.

321 281 My wife has a compromised immune system and wears one.

This is NOT a critique and please don't take it as such. We've been told over and over again that the mask is not really meant to protect the wearer. May I ask why she wears one?

It will not stop all the virus, BUT it may stop enough that her body can handle and defeat the viral load she gets.

In other words, she gets just a passing shot and recovers.

How likely will she be continuously exposed to the Chinese Plague while shopping? Very little, and if the mask even stops 50% of the virus, it makes her more likely to not get infected.

If she works in an ER, that is entirely different. They literally are bathed in the Chinese Coronavirus 2019. The mask has to be perfect to stop them from getting exposed in their 12 hour shifts.

I wear a mask. If you think that is wrong, so be it. I will wear one anyway.

So jealous.

I've had to do my own hair for the past few months. Unless you are a black woman with very thick, very kinky natural hair, you won't understand how crazy time and energy Consuming it is. If it takes uponly 5 hours, like yesterday, I feel fortunate.

I miss my stylist. She used to give me some really cute hairstyles, too.

And now that some businesses will never recover, it's probably going to be even harder to find a hair stylist than before. (Unlike my sisters of pallor, I can't just walk in somewhere nearby and ask for them to do my hair. )

325 The alternative means of testing a vaccine is called "challenge testing" - where you give the vaccine, and then intentionally give the virus to see if the vaccine has worked. Western countries won't do this in human trials (we do it in primates often), but any vaccine that seems to work will most certainly get challenge tested by certain, shall we say less humanitarian, countries...

327 I've always been curious about the idea that it's somewhat like "Look what we made everybody do".



Now, I think the students of the Frankfort School have been
consistently frustrated with how much resistance America has put up
against Marxism. We almost refuse to define our system with much more
than marginal redistribution as Marxism would prescribe.



So I think they like to test the waters every so often to see what
they what *other* ideas they can get into our head and practice.



This is probably one of the biggest Collapse-the-System wins they
have ever pulled off. And it indicates the country might be closer to
boiling the frog.



I really think gaslighting is sort of "What can we make them
believe?" and changing our way of life is "What can we make them do?"



Are the bubbles coming up fast enough?

Posted by: Axeman at May 26, 2020 06:54 PM (Eicbe)

The analogy that comes to my mind comes from the episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit! on recycling. They did an undercover video to see how far they could get people to go when they thought they were saving the earth. By the end of the video, they no joke were getting people to sort "recyclables" into 12 or so different containers including one for soiled toilet paper.


The American public are those poor schmucks in Penn and Teller's video being told if they don't take this one more step, they are literally killing grandma (and never mind their Dem governor already snuffed out all the grandma's he/she could in the last 9 weeks).

336 Here's a plan. Deliberately infect people so you can test the vaccine.
Better yet skip the vaccine and just infect as many people under 40 as you can.

337 I'm sure this vaccine will be on the shelf right next to the Sars and Bird Flu vaccines the govt spent hundreds of billions of dollars on. Even if this flu goes away we should demand anyone who recieved money is still required to continue working untill one is found or pay back the money.
