Dear Covidiots,
The virus doesn't give a rats ass about your rights.

She said being forced to do anything defies personal liberty

And she's the first one to complain when I show up with no pants on.

This is why China forced people into their homes and welded the doors shut.

She cares about no other humans, so into prison she goes where the other serial killers are.  Enjoy the rest of your short and stupid life.

Probably not the first one, but your point is taken. ;)

"Personal liberty", my ass. She's a liar. I'm sure she's anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, etc. etc. etc. You're free, but only to follow her rules.

If it wasn't for the fact that they'll infect innocents, at this point I'd just say "let them get coughed on". Worthless garbage plague rats.

Remember everyone - it's 'the left' who is politicizing wearing masks.  the same 'left' who let harvey weinstein run amok.

Wife and I usually vacation there since it's a convenient place to take the dogs for a week.

We will not be going there this year. Probably not next, either. She's in the at-risk group and I have a couple older family plus my brother who are even worse off, so the last thing either of us need to do is get sick because a bunch of sociopathic hicks are too weak to wear a little piece of cloth now and then.

We've been leaning towards going somewhere else for awhile, anyway.  North Carolina had some nice spots on the OBX 30 years ago, but between the congestion and the hillbilly shiatshow that is the mainland... eh.

Organizer Ashley Smith is calling it the Burn Your Mask Challenge.

The internet is forever, Ashley.  Remember this when you bemoan the treatment you receive in the future for this "one mistake" you made on the internet.  This virus humbles everyone who diminishes it.
 
2020-06-17 10:50:33 AM  
Remember, folks... no need to take that mask off before you light it on fire!
 
2020-06-17 10:51:41 AM  
As said elsewhere, the most damage that Trump has done during his Presidency was politicizing the masks.

Thosuands have died and thousands more will die over that.

This has me really triggered. If right wingers keep doing this I will definitely have been "owned."
 
2020-06-17 10:52:01 AM  
Some of the near 80,000 Reopen NC followers support the Burn Your Mask Challenge, and some other commenters called it out as immature and selfish.

"I don't see it as immature, I see it as sending a statement," Smith said. "I think it's extremely selfish to tell someone they have to wear a mask."


Is this person 12?

Better than the people who just throw them on the ground before they get in the car.

I'm sorry we have those idiots here.  I'm staying indoors and wearing my mask when I do go out.  Actually been confronted at a grocery store as to why I believe I should wear a mask.  Crazy times we are living in.

About 35% of adults in this country are spoiled, bratty toddlers who can't think past their own immediate self interest. Don't wanna get sick? Well they're not wearing a mask so don't count on enjoying a dinner out, or going to a movie, or test driving that new car. They're the important ones, and they have rights, so screw you. Eventually, businesses will lose enough money and start correcting the issue on their own, because people like me (the majority) see what's happening and nope right the fark out of public gatherings.

Please, for the love of god, elect Joe Biden this fall. We need to return to normal. The country is ripping itself apart and I don't honestly think we can survive another four years of this trash reality.

I was in line at the hardware store yesterday, 2 people back, when I called out to the cashier, hey, do you sell masks?  She started to tell me where they were when I said tell that to the customer that's not wearing one now.

Fark that went well.

Farking idiot, its not a requirement, and if you don't like it...   they started to say, but I cut them off and said, no I don't like it, and you're endangering everybody here because three minutes of inconvenience is too much for a stupid asshole to put up with.
Leaving the parking lot, I see a car with a rear window full of asshole 2020 stickers.Maybe if the harassment they get is painful, they'll start wearing the farking masks.

It used to be said that a person who was a young conservative had no soul, and a person who was an old liberal had no brain.  The new truth is that conservatives appear to be people who's brains have stopped forming at about the age of eight.

You know what is selfish?  Not bothering to wear a small piece of cloth on your face for a few minutes when you are in public so vulnerable people can be there too.  I have asthma (which has gotten worse coincidentally starting late last year) and I am going to have to be very careful going out even if everyone is being courteous.  This just the latest incarnation of "I'm all right, Jack, fark you."

I always thought it would be a nuclear holocaust or a grey-goo type scenario. I completely discounted farking stupid.

\ That's my mistake.

My mom has been holed up just outside Charlotte, watching her neighborhood carry on basically with business as usual.  For her part she's not remotely expected to go into the office, her boss has made it clear that he doesn't necessarily intend to see her again before the end of the year.  So her work has been great, but the regular people just aren't doing anything.  No masks, no distancing.  I hear the same from other relatives in the south.

Even where I am in NH I had a skewed sense of how things are.  I've been WFH since February or March, and my wife has been doing all of the going out for groceries and such.  So I've largely assumed people are doing what I'm doing.  I learned that that's not remotely the case, and in fact one of our friends got yelled at in a supermarket parking lot /for/ wearing a mask.

Don't remember those. Remember the biscuits and barbecue.

Cheerwine showed up in my Chicago grocery store. I got a bottle. Tastes exactly the same.

\ One was enough.

Replace the phrase "wearing a mask" with "washing your hands after using the bathroom".

I remember joking that Trumpism was a death cult back even just a year or so ago, completely joking.
These people are truly willing to die for their willful ignorance.
It is utterly astounding to watch in real time.

Ray_Finkle: Replace the phrase "wearing a mask" with "washing your hands after using the bathroom".


I've become convinced that the people who refuse to wear masks also don't wash their hands after using the bathroom, because it's the same mindset. They are just gross people.
 
2020-06-17 11:23:08 AM  
I'm convinced that if Trump said that he enjoyed crossdressing, a bunch of his MAGAites would go around and march in high heels and fishnets at the thought that it would piss a liberal off.
