The Leftwing Democrat-Media Complex Has Given Moral Permission to Leftwing Lunatics to Literally Attack People For Not Wearing Masks

This is a growing problem.

The media scolds growing problems -- they are no longer primarily reporters, but free-roaming moral scolds who use their nominal jobs in "journalism" as a cover for Moral Policing.

So they would scold people for their social-distancing lunacy if they thought it was morally objectionable.

But they don't find it morally objectionable -- they find it morally laudatory and politically useful.

1. Man fires gun in Miami hotel because people weren't social distancing.

No scolding from the media about someone using a gun to assault people?

MIAMI -- A South Florida man fired a gun at a Miami Beach hotel after police say he became enraged over a mother and son's lack of social distancing.

A mother and son weren't socially distancing enough for this leftwing Karen's liking?

...

The incident occurred Monday evening in the lobby of Crystal Beach Suites on Collins Avenue. Marks noticed a woman, later identified as Veronica Pena, sitting on a couch with her son. He approached the two and told them to leave.

"You all aren't social distancing," Marks barked, according to the arrest report.

Ignoring him, Pena and her son didnít move. She then overheard Marks say, "Let me take care of them, I have two people not following directions," before he grabbed a black firearm and let off several shots, according to Miami Beach police.

2. Female lunatic wishes death on little children for not wearing masks.

Note that these self-declared Lovers of Science apparently did not get the word that it's almost impossible for kids younger than 10 to catch covid, and there is not a single known example of a kid younger than 10 transmitting the disease to someone else.

But sure, Lover of Science. Scream at children because Tater told you to.

The masked woman approaches a mother with three kids in a grocery store, asking why the children arenít wearing masks.

"They're not supposed to wear them," the mother says.

"That's not true," the woman shouts back.

"Yes, it is," the mother insists, mentioning something about schools.

Then the angry woman -- the "Karen" -- turns to a little girl, and says, "I hope you all die.'

She begins to walk away, and then repeats, "I hope you all die."

These impressionable mentally-ill lunatics are all wound up by the hyperpartisan hatred they catch from Jeff Zucker's CNN.

But does CNN ever counsel the many hysterics and hatemongers in its audience to be polite and reasonable about these things?

No, the example lunatics learn from CNN is that they should attack people if any deviation from Fauci's rules (however imaginary that rule might be) is detected.

This is going to wind up with someone murdering someone else because they saw Dr. "Tater" Stelter getting very riled up about Trump not wearing a mask outside.

And CNN will just giggle and collect its clickbait, hate-bait ad revenue.

Oh and by the way, you're suppose to fucking wear goggles or full face shields now, according to Dr. Brix.

Remember a month ago when they said we were monsters for buying masks instead of leaving them for our brave health care heroes?

Now we're supposed to fucking wear full face shields.

And I suppose deranged leftwingers will be instructed by CNN to shoot people who fail to wear the proper Contamination Hazard Level 5 PPE.

They want us at each other's throats over masks. Masks? With everything else that is going on, as our cities burn and our government arrests gym owners and tells us we can't buy seeds. Masks???

Not only as a distraction, but to instill the idea that it's our own fault if we get sick. Not governors like Cuomo's fault.
Not CHYNA's fault. They want us to blame our neighbor, or our neighbors to giggle and say, "Well if he had worn a mask he wouldn't have died. Dumbass!"

This is sick.

When she persisted, I told her that if she was concerned about catching the virus she should just stay home. Her response: "I'm not somebody's grandmother!"

73 Leaving aside their substantive failure - which of course is everything - it's really jaw-dropping that 2 people as unwordly and clueless as Fauci and Birx have any job anywhere close to the ones they have. Fauci's comment about the greatest - and entirely artificial - economic disaster in history being "inconvenient" was beyond parody. As is Birx's idiotic "decorate" comment.

And there are those in CDC who agree, and are appalled and even frantic at what's being done to public health as an institution.

94 First they told me to wear a safety belt, and I wore a safety belt, because it was good for my health.

Then they told me to stop smoking, and I stopped smoking because it was good for my health.

Then they told me to stop using salt, and I stopped using salt because it was good for my health.

Then they told me to stop eating fat, and I stopped eating fat because it was good for my health.

Then they told me to wear a mask, and I started to wear a mask because it was good for my health.

Then they told me to wear face shield, and I started to wear a face shield because it was good for my health.

(Two years later)

Then they told me to kill myself, and I have decided to kill myself because it is good for my health.

He's been one of the more readable independent analysts on C19 for months. He's not heavy duty epidemiology, more top-line stuff using macro data, but presents it clearly.

There are many excellent analysts on the twatters for this - actually, the only place there is anything worth looking at. And many links to scientific articles when you want to go deeper.

It's like the rest of the "news", but much, much more so. You really won't have almost any idea about the actual facts, and far from any idea of what they mean/don't mean, if you don't do this analysis yourself, or read these people.

last time i had mrs. chronda's car serviced, i discovered that the dealership had discontinued their shuttle service and closed their customer waiting area due to the covid. they expected me to stand around outside while they did the car. it happened to be one of the few days of the year when we get pouring rain.

Social Media COVID stories are basically urban legends at this point, only with a lot less credibility.

The story promptly disappeared without comment after that.

271 We're not "defeating" anything. Absent a vaccine yesterday, only things affecting final score can be: 1) therapies that save lives, 2)time-shifting of caseload to prevent deaths due to lack of medical capacity, and 3) isolation of vulnerable. Period. That's it.

And that's not "defeating" it, just reducing the final impact. Almost everything with the horrific economic, social, AND medical impact (deferred testing/care/treatment) that's continuing is relevant only to #2, and that turned out to be a miscalculation. There was no material issue with medical capacity, anywhere, including NYC/NJ.

331 Willowed wall of text. Maybe being at the end, someone will still see it, and find it useful.

I would like to tell you all a story about voodoo medicine.

I don't remember where I first heard the term "voodoo medicine," but I remember distinctly what it was referring too: the application of backboards to trauma patients. I'll come back to that.

I started in emergency medicine in 1991. Back then, we gave high-flow oxygen to almost everyone. If some is good, more is better, right? "Give them oxygen! You can't kill them with oxygen!" Got chest pain? Non-rebreather mask for you! High flow oxygen will save the day! Abdominal pain? High flow for you! Broken leg? Yep, you get 15 L/min. Everybody got oxygen. It is what was always done.

Then somebody did a study. And it was duplicated. Huh. Seems that hyperoxygenating people caused the creation of free radicals, which did far more damage than the extra oxygen did good. And we stopped giving so much oxygen. Now we titrate the application to achieve a certain benchmark. High flow oxygen was voodoo medicine: we just thought it was common sense, so it must be good. Right? Turns out, we were wrong.

In 1991, every trauma patient got a backboard and cervical collar. Gotta protect that spinal column! Fall off a roof? Backboard for you! High speed car crash, but you're out and walking around? Tough shit! You need a backboard! Stand here while we demonstrate this cool method of lying you back onto a backboard to protect your spine that doesn't hurt. Grandma fell out of her chair? Lay flat on this hard board, grandma, and shut up about it! Do you want to be paralyzed????

Then somebody did a study. And it was duplicated. Huh. Seems that putting everybody on a backboard was a bad idea. For some people, it did far more harm than good. In fact, in only a small handful of cases, was this helpful. You see: it was voodoo medicine. We did it because we had always done it, it was just common sense, so it must be good, right? Turns out, we were wrong.

There has never been a repeated, published study that says any kind of a face covering prevents the spread of this virus or any other. It is voodoo medicine. It's what we do instead of something. It's just common sense, right? I'm pretty sure we're wrong about this, too.

The sciences are horrifically bad at reproducing previous studies. I mean to the point of institutional fraud. It's one of those uncovered scandals that just persists ad nauseum and I cannot for the life of me understand why its tolerated by anyone outside of the business of science.

The deference to "experts" remains a fatal flaw in human behavior.

So your anecdotes don't surprise me in the least. Science research is almost never duplicated in a true and valid sense. Sure, the people/lab who perform the initial study will repeat at as standard procedure as the paper is created and peer reviewed; but an exact repeat by an outside contemporary? It is rarely, validly and wholly reproducible. It's disgraceful.

342 These Karenic nut jobs are angry unhappy people who want to vent their anger physically. However, in their personal situations they are afraid to vent, for whatever the reason, so they go out into the streets, public places, and they vent their anger by accusing others of not wearing a mask, etc. etc. The lady who screamed at the mother with three kids mentioned at one point that she and her three kids were going to "kill me and my husband." I'm going to take a big guess that she's unhappy or miserable in her life with her hubby and would like to beat him to a pulp, but he's her source of revenue and status, so she's decided that going after a mother and three kids won't cost her anything socially and she'll be treated as a hero by some. This is what the Muslims do when they blow up children and burn to death captives. "I'm going to "heaven" because I'm doing it for my faith. Bullshit.
