Mask Tyranny

Mask “guru” and social distancing expert Anthony Fauci is a low-information, scientifically ignorant and duplicitous person trying to be the voice of the COVID crisis.

He has “contradicted” himself repeatedly on his COVID guidance. In March, Fauci told 60 Minutes that masks should largely be “reserved” for healthcare providers.

In April, the recommendations were broadened to “include” simple masks for the general public.

In June, Fauci laughed at the idea of people “wearing” a mask, then 4 months later he “reversed” that position, claiming his statement was “taken out of context.” 

Here fake Anthony Fauci appears to get “vaccinated” on live television in his left arm, but then points to his right arm as the “injection” site afterwards.

Even low information scientist confuse left with right.

I’ve been going to the local gym for the last four weeks. Election season is always stressful, and Michigan winters are cold. Seeing how I work from home and all the restaurants in my state are closed due to our “tyrannical” governor, Gretchen Whitmer, exercising at the gym provides a much needed escape.

One of the gym’s requirements is that you have to wear a mask and wipe down the equipment after you’re done with it. I’m fine with that.

But every once in a while, when I’m running on the treadmill, rowing, or doing some other strenuous activity, my mask slips beneath my nose. I’m not the only one this happens to. I’d venture to say that at least half of my fellow gym-goers have their masks under their noses for an extended amount of time as well. Staff rarely, if ever, walk up to them and ask them to pull them up. They seem to be aware that people need to take deep breaths when performing intense workouts.

This past week, a guy has been “pestering” me about my mask not being over my nose. On multiple occasions, he’s walked over to me, breaking social distancing rules. One time, he asked me, while I was in the middle of a planking exercise where my hands were out in front of me on the floor, to pull it up. No “hello” or “hey, what’s your name?” Just a cold-hearted request for me to put the cloth on my face over my nose. Eventually, he told the front desk worker that I wasn’t following the rules.

These sorts of impersonal, hard-and-fast interactions, purportedly rooted in the “science” that masks make us safe, are becoming all too common in America. Every day I hear new horror stories about how someone at a store or a family outside at the park has been berated by a COVID “Karen” for not wearing a mask. The video below, which shows a guy yelling at a woman to “put your mask on,” has been making the rounds on social media as of late. It should send shivers down your spine.

There’s clearly some sort of shift happening to human beings at a “subconscious” level with all this mask-wearing. It’s complex, but here’s what I think is going on.

Firstly, wearing a mask is how you show that you’re “in the club.” Masks indicate that you’re “following the science” and that you’re a part of the majority and superior to those who don’t wear one. There’s a sort of collective “brainwashing” going on that’s teaching people to “hate” those who aren’t “in the club.”

Second, wearing a mask is a form of “virtue-signaling.” It shows we’re “doing our part” to help protect others. “It’s a sort of secular work of mercy, a pinch of incense, if you will, demanded by the state religion of liberalism.” 

But there’s another thing that masks do that’s equally repulsive: “they hide our faces.” Now, why does that matter? Because by not seeing other people’s faces, you can’t see anyone’s emotions. You can’t see, in other words, them smiling and laughing, two thing that make us uniquely human and are some of the most pleasurable things the human eye can observe.

Masks also “discourage” small talk and seem to disincline us from giving “compliments” to someone about their appearance. Moreover, they “disallow” us from flashing a smile to an overjoyed infant sitting in their mom’s shopping cart in the check-out lane. What a sad thing that we can’t smile back at happy children anymore.

Here is a photo of the “mandatory mask” rules on the House floor.

“The attending physician of the house has said that it is imperative for the health and safety of the people in this room that members wear masks.

I’ve been greatly lenient, however I will tell you now that anyone not wearing a mask will not be recognized to speak, period,” Nadler told the house members.

As far as I can tell, these masks are turning us into “trans-humanist robots.” They’re making us view and treat other people as “sub-humans”, as mere carriers of a “virus” to be avoided (even if you are virus free) and reported to authorities immediately instead of treating them as children of God whom we should interact with in a charitable way.

I’m not excited to go back to the gym soon again. I imagine I’ll be asked yet again to put my mask over my nose when it falls below it. If I am, I’ll comply as best as I can. But I’ll also respond with a kind “hello” and try to get to know the guy who’s been on my case the last few weeks.

Maybe we’ll have some things in common. Maybe we won’t. Either way, at least I’ll have tried to interact with him in a joyful, Christian, and human way.
