Just Shut It, COVID-Fear Freaks

Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I have a lot of questions about shepherd’s pie.

So…how are you spending your COVIDversary? It was a year ago today that everything really blew up. We were quickly plunged into a confused collective misery that we thought was going to last just a few weeks.

Bad joke is on us, right?

A year later I’m pretty comfortable saying that we will never return to whatever the heck we thought was normal. “The new normal” is a meaningless phrase. It has to happen for a while before it’s normal. We can’t simply slap a tag on it and say that’s what it is.

We’ve been open here in Arizona for about six months now. It’s the typical COVID-era limited capacity stuff, but based on what I’ve seen the last few times I’ve been out, a lot of places have been coloring outside the lines regarding the protocols. Thankfully, I live in a place that doesn’t have a lot of “tell on your neighbors” freaks.

One of the things I most remember from the two grand reopening experiences we had here in May and September was the unbridled joy on the faces of everyone who was out in public for the first time in a while. Well, once we all sat down and took off our masks, that is. It’s hard for me to believe that everyone wouldn’t want to experience that.

Yet here we are.

Even the states that have experienced the most onerous lockdowns are beginning to open up. Sure, New York and California are only doing it because their governors are both neck-deep in trouble, but it’s still happening. What’s stunning to those of us on the pro-freedom side of things is that so many people still want to be miserable. The “follow the science” crowd is only following the narrative that’s been used this past year to keep people in a state of acquiescence. It was acquiescence at the beginning, anyway. Eventually, half the country decided that they were morally superior if they just rolled over for every whim that petty tyrants like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo decided to inflict upon them.

The drooling idiot who is wasting space in the Oval Office read a teleprompter for a bit last night, informing us of the miserable vision his handlers have for pandemic America. Tyler has the details:

On Thursday, President Joe Biden held out a promise of returning to normalcy amid the COVID-19 pandemic that perfectly encapsulates the depressing nature of his presidency. After meandering and dead boring remarks about the toll of COVID-19, the existence of drive-in vaccine centers, and the progress Biden’s administration has made in the past 50 days, the president got to the part of his speech that was clearly intended to be uplifting.

Instead, it will likely hit Americans like a ton of bricks.

In leading up to his grand vision of a restored America, Biden started to get a bit creepy.

“I will not relent until we beat this virus, but I need you, the American people, I need you. I need every American to do their part. And that’s not hyperbole, I need you. I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn and you can find an opportunity, and to help your family, your friends, your neighbors, get vaccinated as well,” he said.

There is no beating the virus. The pandemic can be stopped, but the virus will always be lurking out there. Part of the b.s. narrative the tyrants and this moron asterisk POTUS have been spreading is that the virus will be banished forever.

Biden’s puppet-masters don’t really believe in science, they believe in power. And they’re not willing to give any of the power they’ve gotten from COVID away soon. Gropey Joe told the American people that we might be able to have some fun by the 4th of July.

Sorry, Drools, I’m already having fun and enjoying the company of my family and friends. You don’t get to dictate that kind of activity in my life. Or rather your handlers don’t.

Anyone like me who celebrates freedom is still ridiculed by the fake science invertebrates. They’re still clinging to the “killing grandma” stuff, portraying anyone who wants to eat in a restaurant as a mass murderer.

These people need to be shamed, shunned, and shut up. So does their paste-eater of a president. We can live our lives and be responsible. The big question is why do leftists struggle so much with that concept?

My answer is that the far left attracts mostly intellectually weak people who don’t have the fortitude to govern themselves. Government is their god. They lack the moral compass that would make them do the right thing by choice.

We can’t have people like that being the arbiters of what’s right, wrong, or safe.

Let them cling to their fear-based secular pseudo-virtue. If they want to stay home and keep wearing masks in public forever that would be a great benefit to society.

But they don’t get to have an opinion about what I do.

Ever.

TGIF.
