What do you do if you’re just peacefully shopping, when, all of a sudden, a couple of crazed, mask-wearing shoppers start screaming at you, get in your face, threaten, and assault you? That’s precisely what happened to Jeriah and Landyn Dickinson at the Walmart in Post Falls, Idaho. The two teen brothers were minding their own business when they were accosted by an hysterical mask-wearing women who called them “terrorists” for not wearing face masks. The middle-aged woman, supported by a mask-wearing man (presumably her husband) became totally unhinged and can be seen charging around the store like a mad elephant, pointing at the boys and yelling to other shoppers and Walmart employees that she had found these dangerous violators of the COVID mask mandate.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Trump administration that he will take them to court if they send in federal officers to curb the violence and unrest sweeping the city. During a press conference on Wednesday, the Democrat panned the White House as being “fixated” on intervening in New York’s problems.
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” Or maybe Bill de Blasio could just say, “What, me worry?” But what the former Sandinista supporter and now esteemed New York City mayor did say, on Wednesday, as Big Apple crime surges, is that “for seven years, we have made this city safer and safer.”
Contract tracers working for the city of New York reportedly are not permitted to ask anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 if they have attended any recent protests, despite the lack of social distancing at those events and their likelihood for allowing the virus to spread to other individuals.
On April 24, former First Lady Michelle Obama released two public-service announcements urging African-Americans to stay home in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “Our communities are among the hardest-hit by the coronavirus, and we’ve got to do everything we can to keep each other safe,” she said in one PSA. “And that means staying home because even if we are not showing any symptoms, we can still spread the virus to others. Let’s keep each other safe by just staying home.”
At least she wasn’t lynched.In a striking example of the mob mentality at work, a woman was recently chased from a supermarket in Staten Island, New York, because she wasn’t wearing a mask. A now-viral video of the COVID-crazed patrons hurling profanities and screaming at the woman was posted to Twitter Sunday night after user “McAuley” found it on Reddit.
Your “rights are suspended” said a church-raiding cop to a Mississippi pastor at a service last week. And it didn’t matter that the people in attendance were listening to the sermon while seated in their cars. Yet while First Amendment exercise is squelched across the country, “liquor stores, marijuana dispensaries, and abortion clinics are deemed ‘essential’ by government bureaucrats during the coronavirus outbreak,” lamented actor Kevin Sorbo recently. Moreover, this reality, he said, speaks volumes about “the morbid condition of America.”
