Healthy adults protesting wearing a cloth mask should try doing maneuvers while wearing MOPP 4 gear and carrying a full ruck and rifle before whining so loudly.
Nobody’s plan for COVID-19 was perfect. Every mistake cost lives. No argument there. That’s just reality. Doesn’t matter what party you’re in.
But if you’re going to say that Trump’s rhetoric – encouraging runs on meds, injecting and drinking bleach, encouraging people to not wear masks, etc – are “not his fault because they’re just suggestions”, then you are
* childishly demanding freedom without responsibility,
* NOT a patriot, and
* a partisan hack who is just using real lives to win political points, and are beneath contempt and not worth my time.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
