(Business Insider)   Acolytes of FREEDUMB, Trump, and Nurgle ask you to boycott Costco for forcing shoppers to wear masks while picking up a month's supply of toilet paper and $5 chicken. Those masks will prevent you from getting enough oxygen, claimed one   (businessinsider.com) divider line

I had to go to Costco for some supplies today and I found it to be a great shopping trip. The cart was sanitized everyone had a mask and they were handing them out at the door if you didn't have your own. People were doing a good job or trying to stay apart I like their policies. Then again they have always treated their people well and paid a living wage so I have never minded dropping a little extra on that three pack of pianos. Yes o really don't need the other two but it is a great deal.

Restricting oxygen? WTF? So you don't want your surgeon to wear a mask while performing an operation on you?

Jesus, WTF?

Quite a few of the tweets on this only make sense in the original Russian.

These folks have already been already oxygen-deprived, obviously.

Good luck with that.

The only people that will be boycotting Costco don't shop there anyway.

It's been, what, 8 or 9 days since the spittle-frothing protests started about opening up the states for business?
Two days ago, the reported COVID daily death toll in the US was 950 after falling for a week. Yesterday we lost 2416 people and today, 2655. (Click pic for link)

Washington state now has only the 17th highest number of deaths, and 9 states with a higher death toll are RED states.
Looks like the Butt tRumpers have a lot more in common with the rest of us than they thought.

People who refuse to wear masks won't go to Costco, where masks are mandatory.

I'm failing to see the problem here.

Good. Fewer hoarders, more supplies for everyone else. Boycott away.

Mouth breathers. Literally.

We shop at a locally-owned grocery store (they own about three locations in town), and they're enforcing the mask rules. One of the checkers was telling us that they get grief for it--someone said to her, "You want me to hyperventilate?" and she responded with, "No one likes the masks. Just wear it."

I wonder how many of these people who are in a rage that the store is telling them to wear a mask think a store has a right to refuse service to teh geys.

I wish target, which I work for, would do this. We won't miss anyone that would boycott. Maybe then we wouldn't have idiots try and force themselves in the closed enterence.
 
2020-05-07 6:55:15 AM  
Isn't this exactly what Costco wants?  Instead you need to walk in peacefully with a mask as a group, sit on the floor and take them off.  A good sit in is what you need.

Hopefully you can get pepper sprayed.
 
2020-05-07 6:55:48 AM  
To be fair, when you only have a few functioning brain cells, restricting oxygen to them is a serious concern.

No offense intended to your spirit animal, but "45" means little to anyone not an American or a gawker-at-Americans on Fark.

Everyone understands a plague rat. There is no changing that symbolism.

These people live in a perpetual state of "BUT I DON'T WANNA!!!!", especially if what needs to be done comes from libs or egghead ivory tower elitists (as they put it). As has been previously mentioned by someone, they are angry children crying about having to brush their teeth before going to bed.
 
2020-05-07 7:04:01 AM  
I'm OK with this.  Heck, I ENCOURAGE this.   I don't want those folks in my grocery store, and frankly the supply of meat is getting a little thin.  I don't need the extra competition from the MAGA crowd, or for that matter anyone.

Gotta love the tweet shown in the article that says, in part, "Know your constitutional rights!"

Says the asshole who clearly knows nothing about constitutional rights. I'm pretty sure people like that think the Constitution is just one line that says, "Do whatever you want as long as you bow to Jesus at the right churches and your skin is pale!"

People have been getting brutal about masking in my neck of the woods.  The idiot troupe has decided that anyone wearing a mask must be a "liberal", and should be harassed.

Was at a local big box store doing my weekly shopping run, and had a MAGAT following me around, invading my bubble, and fake coughing while having his little giggle fits with his friends.

It's quite telling though, where the MAGATs are thinking when it comes to masks. Almost universally, they rant about how a mask won't protect you from Coronavirus. Entirely missing the point about how masks protect others from you.

They're quite quick to flip the script when someone close to them catches the rona, though.

I honestly don't think they need to worry about the mask restricting oxygen to their brains, because it's obvious theirs has already withered and died due to huffing glue.

They genuinely cannot grasp the concept of helping others. If it does not benefit in the most immediate way themselves, or others of their tribe, they literally cannot understand the idea.

Everyone wears masks, and everyone benefits.

good.

costco has been the on place that has had it's shiat together for months - orderly spaced lines, sanitized carts, limiting the number of people going in, checkout lies spread and protecting the cashiers

some grocery stores are decent and got to 75% of costco, and then some are still free-for-alls

costco is the one place that is even close to low-stress when it comes to dealing with other shoppers

Nah, it was Limbaugh. He said, "the mask is the symbol of fear, the sign that you're at risk, the sign nothing is going to get better." He's appealing to toxic masculinity (which always works with his audience.).

That sign is almost certainly meant as mockery.

The ones which really crack me up are the ones likening the governor of Michigan to Hitler.
