Kansas City Star Opinion: Critics Of Masks Are Worse Than Drunk Drivers

A newspaper "special" offers subscribers the pinnacle of all local "Karen" opinions and compares a controversial new public health mandate to the horrors of bloody twisted steel on the highway.

We can only hope this one is safely hidden behind the paywall but the link tease is good enough for a cheap laugh. Check-it:

We accept that drunk driving endangers others. Why is not wearing a mask different?

I'm a Kansas therapist who has worked, for decades, with men and women ordered to treatment as part of their diversion in a criminal case, or as a consequence for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated.

Because lilly white folks are like trump who feels that they should be able to do anything they please because they are white. They should be held accountable for any violations of the mask orders.

Or maybe “Lilly white folks” still understand the concept of individual freedom and that government is not a dictatorship
You want to wear a mask? Fine. I’m not interested in your demands that I think and agree with you

Except that privileged gatherings of leftists (such as Gavin Newsome's dinner parties and Pelosi's cocktail gatherings) seem oddly exempt. Could it be that the virus, while real, is being completely politicized? Weird.

Chairmen of Covid19 test producer CONFIRMS it‘s a hoax Anonymous (ID: 2qXfnndb) 11/18/20(Wed)05:24:24 No.291497199 [Reply]▶

"There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. This is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. This is nothing more than a bad flu season. It's politics playing medicine and that's a very dangerous game.
There is no action needed....Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence whatsoever they are even effective. It is utterly ridiculous seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people walking around like lemmings obeying without any evidence. Social distancing is also useless.....
Positive testing results do NOT indicate clinical infection. It is simply driving public hysteria and ALL testing should STOP immediately....using the province's own statistics the risk of death under 65 is 1 in 300,000. The scale of the response is utterly ridiculous...all kinds of business closures, suicides .... you're being led down the garden path."

Except for all the scientific studies that say they are. But then, I'm a surgeon, and I don't wear them anymore at all just because of some crackpot I saw on YouTube, which as a source is MUCH more accurate than any vetted medical journal.

You guys will believe just about anything.

You gotta keep the narrative alive because the dimwit party leaders over reacted to the Kung fu flu virus, they got skeered and then you know dimwits, they just couldn’t pass up the chance to blame somebody and since now it’s barely a thing they can’t let it go because they are using it as a distraction to cover up other crimes the lame stream media are not reporting. They don’t want to go down wopith China joe and his hoes crime family.

Jail time is in their future, and theirs nothing they can do to stop it.

Remember Typhoid Mary? The nanny/house maid that was locked up for years in jail - to keep her from continuing to infecting unsuspecting people? She killed many of her employers "by accident". Society has a right to protect innocent people from communicable diseases AND the people who spread them.

Case in point : if you have AIDS and don't tell someone when you have sex - then you can be arrested and charged with attempted 2nd degree murder. You can be jailed, you can be sued in civil court. And if the person dies, you go to prison.

Study the law.

10:13 - "except for all the scientific studies that say they are. Link to a few of those studies, if you're not lying.

11:01 - Only Typhoid Mary was quarantined. Other people who were not proven typhoid carriers were not quarantined. A universal mask mandate obviously would affect everybody, including those who do not have covid.

I see the "surgeon" is back. Must be a slow week in the OR.

Surgeons don’t wear masks to protect themselves from getting sick. They sanitize themselves, the OR and their instruments because open incisions create a high risk of infection for the patient. Hospital staff should be wearing masks when dealing with sick patients to reduce (not eliminate) the risk of infection to themselves. For most people in most situations, masks are pure theater. They do not accomplish anything.

^^and yet you're not a doctor, scientist, epidemiologist, or even a high school graduate. You're a TKC CHUD, which means you're one of the dumbest fuckers walking the earth. Hard pass on anything you have to say ever. Listen CHUD, when we need your opinion on anything, we'll give it to you. Now go back under the rock you slithered out of! Weird.

Our so called leaders screwed this up from the beginning. First they scream "stop buying masks, they don't work." Then they swing 180 degrees and scream "WEAR A MASK NOW BECAUSE I SAID SO." Don't show some humility, really try to educate and ask people to wear masks, just go full on tyrant and mandate it, while kicking and screaming like a baby. Then don't follow your own rules (Lucas, Newsom, Fauci, etc).

Fuck all of you tyrannical pricks.

This fear of wearing masks would never have happened during World War II. The Greatest Generation followed the government's orders and we came out a better country because of that. This generation is full of idiots who think wearing a face mask threatens their freedom.

The greatest generation believed that the government serves the people, not the other way around. Otherwise, what would there have been to fight for? One totalitarian government versus another?
