I was somewhere around the first paragraph of a post called “The mask’s insidious symbolism” on the right-wing American Thinker blog when the drugs began to take hold.
Well, not literally. It just felt like someone had slipped some powerful hallucinogen into my drink because the writer, one Alison Nichols, couldn’t really be saying what she seemed to be saying, right?
Here, you try reading it:
Why are those of us who have had our COVID vaccines still wearing masks? We are protected from the virus and cannot carry the virus despite being admonished otherwise. Is it because Maoism is still shaping our world?
Bam. You saw the bit about Maoism too, right? I didn’t just conjure that up in a drug-induced haze. At least I hope not.
L:et’s just keep reading to see where Ms. Nichols takes us.
While the West mistakenly believed that China would become more like us after embracing Capitalism, the West is becoming more like China; Maoism and Chinese communism are spreading like a prairie fire.
Huh. I guess I’d better get out my little red book to keep up with the times. But what exactly do masks have to do with Maoism?
Nichols, evidently an old China hand, tells us about a trip she took to China many decades ago.
For those of us who had the opportunity to travel to China following Richard Nixon’s 1972 visit, besides the overall bleakness resulting from Chairman Mao Zedong’s reign, the uniform that every person in China wore was disconcerting. The Mao jacket was the quintessential Chinese communist apparel. It symbolized Mao’s ideology: he intended to equalize more than a billion people by what they wore.
Ok, but I just looked down and I’m not wearing a Mao suit, though I did manage to remember to put on some decidedly non-Maoist pants.
Nichols gets back to the masks, and her argument, such as it is, gets a little clearer. It’s still pretty stupid, though.
Does this sound familiar? Is the mask a means to “equalize” the West?
I’m going to say no, not any more than the requirement to wear shirts and shoes when you go to the local quickee mart.
Nichols answers her own question with a strange conspiracy theory:
Liberal activists like Fauci, including those ensconced in the White House, appear to be drunk with power and deliberately moving toward the Chinese social control system that Barack Obama set into motion.
The what that the who set into motion? These people are really obsessed with Obama, huh? I wonder why, wink wink nudge nudge. As best as I can recall, he’s been out of office for more than four years.
It was Obama who promised “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” And “the mask” is not the only means of controlling our society.
You haven’t exactly explained how masks are “controlling our society” but do go on.
Consider the Biden administration running roughshod over the First, Second, and Tenth Amendments to our Constitution. (The less famous Tenth Amendment reserves for the states all power not explicitly lodged with the federal government.) Then there’s the hare-brained idea of vaccination passports.
Yes, the idea that one might have to get vaccines before traveling overseas is such a new and heretical notion.
Wait, I’m being told that this is neither new nor heretical.
And there is more, so much more. Have you read Biden’s $2-trillion so-called “infrastructure plan” that more accurately intends to “reshape” capitalism?
Is Biden going to build new bridges out of masks?
Much more money is earmarked for the Green New Deal, a land-grabbing, money-grabbing social control hoax, than for actual infrastructure.
Does any of those in charge know that the climate has been drastically changing since the beginning of time? Of course they do, but never let the truth get in the way of a narrative that works for the cause.
Wait, where do the masks fit in all this?
The above is a drop in the bucket for implementing Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of America and seeing the federal government gain complete control over our society.
Still no more mentions of masks. But we’re back to Obama, the guy who is not actually president at this time.
Far-left politicians and their media accomplices who assiduously protect them are akin to a “jack-booted” implementation of Marxist ideology in America. And make no mistake: the implementation of Marxist ideology is communism and the road to servitude.
I’m pretty sure that Karl Marx did not have an opinion abut masks.
After the fall of the Roman Republic, the first substantial constitutional republic to appear again in the world was America. When the lights go out here, the dominoes will fall for freedom-loving peoples across the planet.
But if the lights go out, how will we be able to see the dominoes falling?
How many thousands of years will pass before freedom and liberty can emerge from the dark shadow of tyranny?
For us who are on our way out of this world, “fundamentally transforming” America is an eye-roll. For our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, it is a tragedy. They will not live with the freedoms and liberty that have made America the envy of the world.
All this because the government and public health experts want people to wear masks some of the time?
One can’t help wondering if it will be worse to lose your freedoms or never to have known what it means to be free. The only hope is for the silent majority to rise and confront the abomination facing our country.
Sorry to break it to you, but the silent majority is neither silent nor a majority. Surely you’ve noticed them running about in their ubiquitous red MAGA hats and …
Wait a minute! How exactly are these hats any better than masks when it comes to the whole “making everyone look alike because that’s what Mao would want” argument.
Nichols doesn’t say. It’s probably Obama’s fault somehow.
Unlike our corporate CEOs, who, if they aren’t craven, are hardcore ideologues
You heard it here first. Our corporate overlords are actually a bunch of Maoists.
it takes courage to stand up for America and her ideals in today’s woke culture.
It takes something — I’m not sure what — to post a conspiracy theory this wack even in today’s conspiracy-mad world. Seriously, this is QAnon-level bullshit. I’ll take woke over wack any day.
