Whatever happen to “Law and Order”, “Blue Lives Matter”, and all the other right-wing phrases that was paraded in the past 5 years by people on the right?

Only when it’s convenient isn’t?

Now all of a sudden you are such a big macho man by defying authority and fighting “tyranny” by not wearing a mask . What a joke.

500,000 of your fellow Americans (not sure if you’re from the US or not, but just assuming) have died from this disease. Please have a little more respect for others, studies have shown that social distancing and wearing masks helps save lives and reducing the risk of transmission. Again, I follow what the science says, not what right wing conspiracy lunatics on the internet say (Alex Jones I’m looking at you).
CIA account flagged.

I applaud your efforts, but may I ask a question? Why put it on if someone asks you to? Why even keep one on you at all? That's a compromise, man. Don't bow the knee to the system in anyway, shape, or form.
Because getting arrested / fined is a huge inconvenience, with possible negative repercussions. Why make a situation worse than it has to be? The guy is just looking for the compliance, and I'll give him the appearance of such, but as soon as he's out of range, I'm back in my own mask-free jurisdiction. If I could go totally maskless, I would, but doing so would raise my cortisol levels enormously (which is anti-testosterone) and could possibly land me in jail. Wearing the muzzle for less than 5 minutes a day has barely scratched my quality of life, so I'd like to think that I've escaped this madness relatively unscathed. Kudos to you for ducking the mask entirely, I gotta say I'm impressed. How do you do it?

With all due respect, you are not going to get arrested or fined for refusing to put on the mask. The worst that is likely to happen is that they will tell you to leave. Then if you don't leave, they will call the cops; then the cops will likely tell you to leave.

As far as myself, if I get asked to put on a mask I tell them I have a medical and religious exemption. So far it has 'worked' every time except once. I try to be nice and pleasant, but very firm. I also try my best to not get bothered in the first place. I ask God to protect me from the secret council of the wicked prior to going anywhere, then I try to exude an air of 'this guy isn't going to back down and isn't someone to mess with'. I believe for these reasons, I rarely get hassled in the first place.

As far as work, I'm work from home at the moment. If we get called back into the office, I plan on telling my boss that I have a religious and medical exemption and therefore I expect them to either let me go mask free or make a reasonable accommodation (like continued wfh). Will it work? I think it will, because I've got the leverage. I don't believe they can afford to lose me at the moment, and more importantly they know me well enough to know that if they fire me they will get my best shot back and I will take them to war.

In Mexico almost never. Never (!) outside, under my chin at Walmart, sometimes not at all in 7/11, depending on who works there that day.
In Germany unfortunately quite often, and don't even think about putting it under your nose. It was soul crushing each and every time I had to comply.

On trains and buses I will wear a mask, but if there is nobody within about 5 metres on the train I will take it off. Interesting that ticket inspectors who have previously verified my ticket then are nice enough to turn a blind eye. In supermarkets I also wear one. In takeaway food stores, sometimes not as I am usually in a casual mood. Out in the streets, almost never even when everyone else does. So many times I have walked past police and groups of police and police in cars and no-one has said anything. I think the unofficial rule is that masks outdoors are optional but certain people love following the rules so much that they wear one anyway.

There is so much air outdoors. So very many cubic metres of air, from the ground going up many kilometres. If you breathe out a 'corona', is it such a high risk that a person a few metres away will then breathe it in? Even if they did, will they then definitely catch it and is a single 'corona' enough or does it take a few?

Well, I'm not worried.. but as a courtesy to to others will wear one indoors.

Have only twice been requested by officials to put on a mask, once by some friendly and fat local council characters giving out gentle reminders in the town. Once by police in uniform just after sitting on a bench about to eat something, but when I told them about the food they said okay well eat first then put it on.

Have actually witnessed two incidents of citizens policing each other in the last few days.

Many have used the bolded sentiment, but I don't buy it. Where is your courtesy towards those of us that are made uncomfortable by the mask?

As to the police officer asking you to put the mask on, you should have used the opportunity to educate him and challenge him. Some ideas:

"Do you have a medical license? Then why are you attempting to practice medicine without a license?"

"I have a religious exemption, are you going to discriminate against me because of that? (if so) Would you also be willing to discriminate against me because of the color my skin?"

Put the police officer on camera. Ask them their name and badge number. Tell them they will be viewed on the internet forever; and how do you think a half million people that think like me will like them acting like a Nazi?

As much as I detest wearing a mask, it's basically required to enter any business in my area or they will refuse service. I'm also required to wear a mask at work. My workaround was to find a simple leatherwork pattern for a face mask with a "grille" made of small holes over the mouth and nose. It looks really cool and gets compliments everywhere I go, especially when people learn that I made it myself. Not a single person thus far has noticed that it completely defeats the purpose of wearing a mask, and I can breathe as though there's nothing there. I consider it a small form of protest until I can afford to escape this liberal hellhole.

Proof that no one is really scared of you infecting them, they are only scared of someone disobeying "daddy". Anything that shows your submission to "daddy" is good enough for the masses. Some one openly defying "daddy" is extremely caustic to those whose entire being is wrapped up in this falsehood. The mere suggestion that someone else has peeked into pandoras box scares the crap out of these pathetic excuses for a human.

On another note, I have been forced to wear a mask to get into grocery stores etc. I have a cloth mask my wife got somewhere that has a green plaid pattern. I have had a couple people compliment it, which I absolutely hate. It makes me feel disgusted to have a mask complimented. :vomit::vomit:

"Law and Order" applies when the laws are reasonable, justifiable, and in accordance with the people's customs. "Blue Lives Matter" as a reaction to BLM only matters if the officers in question are upholding the aforementioned laws. Glorifying thugs whether they're "Black" or "Blue" is wrong. Period.

This isn't a manner of convenience for those opposed to these unfounded, unscientific policies. It's a matter of conscience. The evidence does not exist. Denis Rancourt has made that obvious in his studies (1st link). Toronto area hospitals have been taken to court for their "Vaccinate or Mask" policy, and when they could not produce evidence that masks helped in any way to protect people from the flu (which is transmitted by airborne viruses), they were forced to rescind those policies in 2018. (2nd link).


You do not "respect" others. You (whether knowingly or unknowingly) "hate" others by your actions. You're not just submitting to unreasonable dictates, you're pretending that it makes you more compassionate than those that don't. Not only that, but you're justifying these anti-human dictates. For to be human, is to be reasonable, getting your opinions from the TV/Radio and not doing your own work makes you less human.

Take a look at what you're condoning.

LMAO. Have some respect for yourself and do not monopolize the dead for your own personal gain. This (COVID) isn't a disease, because if that were the case, we'd be able to isolate, trace and discover where and when it occurs.

The definition of tyranny, is someone forcing you, through coercion or threats, to do things that go against reason and sensibility.

The masks do not stop, nor do they prevent COVID from being spread. America has way too many obese, diabetic and entitled old people. The numbers you mention, those are deaths from people with pre-existing conditions.

Studies have not shown a damn thing. If you can't cite and show, you're nothing but a propagandist appendage from the elites, so far as I'm concerned. Please do tell them: we know their game and we pray daily for Christ to expose them for the frauds they are. May God expose Gates, Fauci, Schwab and all the rest of these disgusting and vile men, for the frauds they truly are. Gates especially.

If you're forcing people/support forcing people to wear a mask, which is somewhere between pointless and detrimental to healthy bacterial development in the mouth: it's tyranny.

None of these "precautions" make sense, because corporatists are rewarded, while little serfs and their humble shops are punished. That's how I know this isn't a pandemic.

Also, since EVERYTHING is based on AI modeling, how does anyone know the data, is the truth?

This has all been one big, giant scam. It has ran it's purpose: to scare as much of the public as possible, into voluntarily taking Bill Gates RNA vaccine, which weakens and sterilizes men and women. I know that is true, because a traditional, safe antigen-based vaccine in Germany is currently being suppressed by these vile men, who use God's gifts to oppress mankind. After all, how does Bill Gates and the rest of the elite, how do they obtain their vision of depopulation, without this having occurred?

They have no clothes and the people take notice. We shall not live in fear.

You're seriously listing the CDC as a credible source? C'mon dude... Did you just so happen to skip over all the posts in this forum about how fraudulent the CDC is? Please do some thorough research outside of the Gates-Fauci matrix and get back to us. There are many studies that show masks are actually harmful: WEARING a mask is more likely to get you sick vs. NOT WEARING one. Explain to me in plain English how breathing recycled air is good for your lungs, by extension your brain, by extension your bloodflow, and by extension your body function. Enlighten me perros.

There is a nice graph on Wikipedia that calculated mask regulations and the frequency of adherence to it. The data for 3rd world countries are ridiculous, since many don't adhere to anything in most African or even some South American countries:

1920px-Mask_laws_around_the_world.svg.png

In truth - China eliminated most mask enforcement in the summer of 2020.

Is there any correlation with mortality? None in terms of masks. However there is one major correlation - those regions that shut down the hardest limiting healthcare the most, panicking the people the most - they experienced the biggest uptick in real mortality. Nevermind countries like Sweden - their mortality despite the stupid covid deaths numbers did not go beyond the year 2015 - any year pre 2015 was more deadly per 100.000 than the super-duper-killer-pandemic year of 2020.

Masks are illogical and only destroy and cause health issues down the line. They are absolutely useless for any respiratory virus or exosome.

This is what happened few days ago, at the University where I have done my Masters:



According to eye witnesses, an old guy sitting by himself, wearing his mask almost all the time, takes off his mask to drink water. Police gets called on him and he gets asked to leave, which he think is ridiculous.

In the first video, the Police is seen forcefully escorting the man outside.

In the second video, on the same account above, the police accuse him of not wearing his mask and that he was sneezing and coughing, to which he strongly denies. They take him outside the ground and he complains about injustice and that what is happening to him is wrong. The police keep arguing back and then he emotionally says he will leave but he gets pushed to the ground and forcefully secured/arrested.

Could someone, please forward this news story to Tucker or other places ( I have already forwarded to Campus Reform). My University is one of the elite ones of US and such incidents need to be exposed at both local and national level. The liberal culture in the University is highly toxic, even though it is in Texas which has removed the mask mandate (It is in Houston which unfortunately is blue). I want the University embarrassed by such things. I would also like the man to get enough exposure and support so as to sue the living daylights out of the University.

Right now the liberal Alums and students are all fine and in agreement with the Police's actions where as just a summer ago, during the BLM riots, they were accusing the same university Police division as highly racist and doing forceful arrests against marginalized students. They wanted the Police division to not interfere in University events. What a bunch of hypocrites.

The university, the police, the alums and students approving this incident need to be exposed and embarrassed so that people start standing up (very possible in Houston, Texas) and say enough is enough.
