Leftwing Neurotic Wealthy Woke White Woman's Magazine The Atlantic Notices That Liberals Have Become Mentally Ill Over Covid

"The Liberals Who Can't Quit The Lockdown."

Lurking among the jubilant americans venturing back out to bars and planning their summer-wedding travel is a different group: liberals who aren't quite ready to let go of pandemic restrictions. For this subset, diligence against COVID-19 remains an expression of political identity--even when that means overestimating the disease's risks or setting limits far more strict than what public-health guidelines permit. In surveys, Democrats express more worry about the pandemic than Republicans do. People who describe themselves as "very liberal" are distinctly anxious. This spring, after the vaccine rollout had started, a third of very liberal people were "very concerned" about becoming seriously ill from COVID-19, compared with a quarter of both liberals and moderates, according to a study conducted by the University of North Carolina political scientist Marc Hetherington. And 43 percent of very liberal respondents believed that getting the coronavirus would have a "very bad" effect on their life, compared with a third of liberals and moderates.

Last year, when the pandemic was raging and scientists and public-health officials were still trying to understand how the virus spread, extreme care was warranted. People all over the country made enormous sacrifices--rescheduling weddings, missing funerals, canceling graduations, avoiding the family members they love--to protect others. Some conservatives refused to wear masks or stay home, because of skepticism about the severity of the disease or a refusal to give up their freedoms. But this is a different story, about progressives who stressed the scientific evidence, and then veered away from it.


For many progressives, extreme vigilance was in part about opposing Donald Trump. Some of this reaction was born of deeply felt frustration with how he handled the pandemic. It could also be knee-jerk. "If he said, 'Keep schools open,' then, well, we're going to do everything in our power to keep schools closed," Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at UC San Francisco, told me. Gandhi describes herself as "left of left," but has alienated some of her ideological peers because she has advocated for policies such as reopening schools and establishing a clear timeline for the end of mask mandates.
...

The spring of 2021 is different from the spring of 2020, though. Scientists know a lot more about how COVID-19 spreads--and how it doesn't. Public-health advice is shifting. But some progressives have not updated their behavior based on the new information. And in their eagerness to protect themselves and others, they may be underestimating other costs. Being extra careful about COVID-19 is (mostly) harmless when it's limited to wiping down your groceries with Lysol wipes and wearing a mask in places where you’re unlikely to spread the coronavirus, such as on a hiking trail. But vigilance can have unintended consequences when it imposes on other people's lives. Even as scientific knowledge of COVID-19 has increased, some progressives have continued to embrace policies and behaviors that aren't supported by evidence, such as banning access to playgrounds, closing beaches, and refusing to reopen schools for in-person learning.


...

Even as the very effective covid-19 vaccines have become widely accessible, many progressives continue to listen to voices preaching caution over relaxation. Anthony Fauci recently said he wouldn’t travel or eat at restaurants even though he's fully vaccinated, despite CDC guidance that these activities can be safe for vaccinated people who take precautions. California Governor Gavin Newsom refused in April to guarantee that the state's schools would fully reopen in the fall, even though studies have demonstrated for months that modified in-person instruction is safe. Leaders in Brookline, Massachusetts, decided this week to keep a local outdoor mask mandate in place, even though the CDC recently relaxed its guidance for outdoor mask use. And scolding is still a popular pastime. "At least in San Francisco, a lot of people are glaring at each other if they don’t wear masks outside," Gandhi said, even though the risk of outdoor transmission is very low.

Scientists, academics, and writers who have argued that some very low-risk activities are worth doing as vaccination rates rise--even if the risk of exposure is not zero--have faced intense backlash. After Emily Oster, an economist at Brown University, argued in The Atlantic in March that families should plan to take their kids on trips and see friends and relatives this summer, a reader sent an email to her supervisors at the university suggesting that Oster be promoted to a leadership role in the field of "genocide encouragement." "Far too many people are not dying in our current global pandemic, and far too many children are not yet infected," the reader wrote. "With the upcoming consequences of global warming about to be felt by a wholly unprepared worldwide community, I believe the time is right to get young scholars ready to follow in Dr. Oster’s footsteps and ensure the most comfortable place to be is white [and] upper-middle-class."

Leftists are especially hardcore Science Deniers when it comes to reopening schools, of course:


Months slipped by, and evidence mounted that schools could reopen safely. In Somerville, a local leader appeared to describe parents who wanted a faster return to in-person instruction as "fucking white parents" in a virtual public meeting; a community member accused the group of mothers advocating for schools to reopen of being motivated by white supremacy. "I spent four years fighting Trump because he was so anti-science," Daniele Lantagne, a Somerville mom and engineering professor who works to promote equitable access to clean water and sanitation during disease outbreaks, told me. "I spent the last year fighting people who I normally would agree with... desperately trying to inject science into school reopening, and completely failed."

On that point, check out this tweet from the president of, I think, the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingartner:

Someone pointed out that parents who are teaching their kids at home also have additional full-time jobs to contend with, while teachers just have the one six-hours-a-day job (with summers off).

And apparently being physically present for work is too tough for them.

But sure, Randi -- you're The Real Heroes Here.

Note well: No masks here, even though the Carters are in their nineties and this is indoors.

Seems like the need for a nice selfie trumped the need for Mask Theater.


Here are some of the suggestions:

Here are 10 easy ways to keep feeling morally superior once the pandemic is over:

Never stop wearing a mask as long as you live: This is probably the simplest solution. Wear your mask forever. Breathe in that sweet, sweet, moral superiority and CO2.

Start a podcast about your time wearing a mask: Bring in co-hosts who also wore masks, and talk about how you wore masks. As a bonus, do it while wearing a mask.

Get a tattoo of your mask on your face: There's no better way of reminding everyone how important masks used to be and how important you were for wearing one.

Start an HOA in your suburban neighborhood: Oh-- you already started one? Of course, you did!

Declare a climate emergency and switch to an all-bug diet: Bugs are the most morally superior thing to eat. Also, be rich and drive an electric car. Shame all people who do not do the same.

Punch a white male in the face every day: If you're not already doing this, what the heck is wrong with you? Go punch a white male in his dumb white face!

PS: Cry moar, bitch.

52 NC's Roy Cooper says that The Science has proved masks are super duper requirments and that you can maybe possibly go without one if you're rushing from the interior your car to your home and quickly put it back on once you're inside around family, BUT masks and mask mandates are the not-law until 2/3rds of the NC population gets one of the vaccines.

The bad part is that vaccinations have dropped like a rock because the people who wanted the shot went and got it the moment it was available. No one else wants it. So I guess we'll be wearing masks forever.

Ha, just kidding. It's up to the people to say "screw you, you're vaccinated, leave me alone" and force life back to normal.

It's *everything* with the Leftists. Leftists are quivering bundles of neuroses and other mental illness. Liberals are just normal people who are wrong.

If you want to know if a person is a liberal (wrong) or a leftist (broken), that's as easy a categorization method as any. If they're a sloppy pudding of neurotic madness, they're Leftists. If they're normal, they're liberals.

We're gonna get all that, on steroids -- The bank analysts are now freaking out about it, as all the indicators are lining up, but still cling to it being "transitory".

We'll get all that except for 20% interest rates. Jacking up interest rates is how Paul Volcker at the Fed of the day killed that inflation.

But they can't do that now, as 20% (hell 5%) interest rates would kill the US govt (which is about $29T in debt total). It would also kill just about every European govt. So, the central banks the world over are going to have to keep printing and do whatever is necessary to keep interest rates at zero.

They know all this. They have destroyed the monetary system and know there is nothing they can do, so they'll keep going until it collapses.

148 >>I think many people who saw teachers as glorified babysitters got a reality check this year when schooling had to be done at home. Teachers deserve respect and recognition for all of the ways they help communities.


Let's be honest: Randi knew that people's ability to work outside the home was dependent on their kids being in school (why this is the chosen norm is another conversation, it's the current reality).

She knew that keeping schools closed would ensure that the economic recovery was delayed, if not significantly harmed. People concerned about the burden of kids home was about that, not simply seeing them as babysitters.

She knew keeping schools shut helped destroy Trump's economy, helped Biden's campaign. Given that teachers unions are some of the biggest Democrat donors, likely she was working in concert w/the DNC.

It was always dishonestly framed to local voters (especially here in CA). SALT allows a state to essentially write off a portion of its high taxes while not paying their fair share into the national pot. It's a scam, but those affected just hear "Trump took your money."

Patterico is seriously emotionally disturbed. The county authorities should put his children, assuming they aren't made up fantasies, in foster homes and remove all small animals to a petting zoo.

Maybe they also soon wake up to being conned on masks, and shutdown of so many small businesses (that may never reopen), and the depressing isolation forced on us.

I had an argument about this earlier on gab, most people want to believe it's shopped. Yes to wide-ish angle lens. What this is is probably a crop sensor DSLR with an onboard flash (see flash reflection in wood panel). When doing this (this is studio photography 101) you get a weird cutout effect, because the shadows are all cast directly behind the subject, and the lighting is flat and even making faces look flat. Wide angle of course makes things in the background seem even further away (I shoot a wide angle for a living). The giveaways are look at Jimmah's shoes. They're HUGE! The chairs are normal sized. Joe looks the weirdest, but again, it's all optical illusion.

Oh my, speaking of interest rates, Janet Yellen was speaking this morning at some economic "summit" thing. And said this:

It may be that interest rates will have to rise a little bit to make sure our economy doesn't overheat

And stocks immediately crashed a little bit and the dollar shot up.

That should show you the power of "rising interest rates".

290 In the first year of C19 in Sweden, where virtually no "policies" were adopted in response (i.e., approach was based, mostly, on actual science as developed in century since the Spanish Flu), there were ...... 0 deaths of school-age children. Zero.

Thanks to Sweden, FL, SD, and a few other jurisdictions, we have good control groups to illustrate the utter futility of "policies" adopted to slow transmission.

Unfortunately, science (along with law, the constitution, and common sense) is dead. It's much worse than I thought before. You have lysenkoism on a mass, and institutional, scale - and it's much worse, because it is grass-roots/mindset-driven - not driven by fear of a tyrant's terror regime.

Add a miseducated/credulous/fearful populace (much of it), and all that's missing is some other faux "crisis" whose "policy" response will provide near-total control over all human behavior and activity.

339 People criticized me all last year about how my masklessness was "making the matter political."

"Don't be political. Wear the damn mask." Etc. Etc. Etc.

I usually replied that I wasn't making it political, they were. This was my reply, even to my allegedly-Republican friends who *also* told me I was "making it political."

The lack of a mask has become synonymous with being the staunchest of Trump supporters. Almost a QAnon level of Trumpism. And honestly, I could not be more pleased with this turn of events.

I did not make it political. They did. And now that we are reaching the point where every last excuse for wearing the mask is being erased, the subconscious association of !Mask == ORANGE MAN GOOD will take a long time for them to break. It became Pavlovian over the past year. I believe there was even an article in another one of these rags that vaccinated liberals admit they still wear a mask SPECIFICALLY so that they are not mislabeled as a *looks around, lowers voice* ....conservative...

Teachers get every holiday off (with all the extra days in there), and the entire summer. But, oh, it's so stressful. Oh, we need more money for education.No, they want more money to indoctrinate children to be little unthinking drones hating this country. And this has been going on for many, many years.I point to the fact that people lack the ability to do critical thinking (which is what teachers ACTUALLY should be doing). If they did, the masks would have been off months ago.
If masks were effective, we would have been wearing masks for flu season every year.

Or assuming one is good - in your case, since you're crossing threads, Chauvin. This really interests me. Not you - not in the slightest - but this extremely noticeable urge to take every situation and assign "good" or "bad". Both the Left and Right do it. The arbitrary assignments are what fuel most of the conflict.

In my experience, most people are extremely self interested at best. Capable of good or bad in according to what they feel - not think, feel - profits them at the time. A few are truly malevolent or benevolent. But the vast majority are capable of bad while convincing themselves they're doing good, and they rarely question of their good works might be bad. Their world-views are constructed to support this. These people occupy the majority of positions in every organization.

Yet - most of each side of the political spectrum still views every organization as simply "good" or "bad". No wonder some see compliance via a mask as a "good" and non-compliance as a "bad". Everything must be simplified and compartmentalized.

400 My go-to phrase when discussing "science" versus "engineering."

In theory, there is no difference between "in theory" and "in practice."
In practice, there is.

405 Our diocese just did another Stewardship drive because the the regular one in November resulted in a 500,000 dollar shortfall. I live in a completely open state but the chancery office is still closed to the public.

Maybe they shouldn't have bought and refurbished a 7 million dollar office building if the only thing open is the Catholic book store on the first floor.

So yeah. Not donating until we see some services.

Depends on how far along in the program it is. If one of your preliminary assumptions supporting your project in its initial conceptual design stage is wrong then, you're wrong.

If one of your assumptions forming the core of a design that has been designed, forged, manufactured, and marketed is under question. Well, sometimes it's reality that must change.

Exactly. The success of science in the last 150 years had induced many people to wrap themselves in the cloak of science. Notice how leftists bleat "follow the science" as a way of convincing people to follow them.

Note also such terms as "library science." I assume that that usage meant "science" in the sense of "studies," but still ...

433 I firmly believe that the past few years, the rise of toxic social media (especially Twitter), and the dominance of media culture by the far-far-far-far-left, has made it not just "normal" to display your mental illness, but celebrated and maybe even demanded. If you're a super-neurotic bossy Karen who thinks black empowerment is white supremacy and men can have babies, and you're also demonstrably mentally unstable and prone to possible psychotic breaks, then you're a celebrity in 2021.

We haven't just de-institutionalized the mentally ill. We've given them a microphone, a camera, a loaded gun, and the levers of power, and told them to go have fun.

434 I used to be on this group that thought we would run out of oil and civilization would collapse. It dawned on me that they were hoping for that. And they wanted it because they didn't like their lives so they wanted some calamity to take them out of it. I still love the woman from MO that told me people would come from Portland and cut down all the trees. She was not happy that I'd told her that the locals would blow the High Bridge and cut off access. As always, Lefties know far more than the people that actually live in an area.
