We all heard about the arrest of a Colorado man who was handcuffed in front of his 6-year-old daughter at a public park for violating the State’s social distancing order, right? We were told his violation of those authoritarian laws put lives at risk, so most people thought the totalitarian action against him was fine
How about here in my own county, Riverside County, in Southern California, where our sheriff, who I voted for and I like a lot, getting on a video saying he’s “authorized to fine or arrest folks not wearing face masks in public”
(including outside public areas). He didn’t say he “would” be enforcing the alleged law (which is illegal), but that he “may” do it.
In Kentucky a parking lot Easter Service was disallowed
, with people not going in the church building, but sitting in their cars. Why? Because church is not essential according to authorities, and it is your job to stay home, so that you can save lives.
I’ve heard stories on the East Coast of drones patrolling the outside to catch people in the act of being outside of their homes, Mayors telling neighbors to snitch on people in their community for breaking the shelter-in-place policies, and people being very upset with Florida’s idea of opening up their beaches.
What does science have to say about that? After all, early on the Democrats were accusing Trump and his supporters of not using science in their decisions regarding the coronavirus.
In a Study earlier this month
, “Indoor Transmission of SARS-COV-2”, April 7, 2020, science determined, “All identified outbreaks of three or more cases occurred in an indoor environment, which confirms that sharing indoor space is a major infection risk.”
There is no science behind the madness being thrust upon us. It is simply the totalitarian left taking full advantage of an alleged crisis. . . after all, we know how they think: “Never let a crisis go to waste.” They want us inside not because it saves lives, because in the long run, it doesn’t. They want you inside because you are easier to control that way.
