Mask Mandates

Burqas and Babies

Whining about mask mandates is a first-world problem. The debate over vaccines is a first-world problem. People in a lot of other nations can’t debate vaccines because they don’t have access to them. Here in this country, we have the privilege of faux outrage. We have access to vaccines to refuse to take. If we didn’t have the vaccines, Republicans would have to go back to screaming about Critical Race Theory and whether or not Mr. Potato Head has a ding-dong.

White Republican males have to be the most persecuted people in the history of persecuted people. They even claim that teaching about other people’s persecution is persecuting them.

Conservatives are screaming about mask mandates in schools. They refer to masks as muzzles which only demonstrates their stupidity. They’re attacking scientists, doctors, and educators because they’re trying to save lives. The fact is, face masks do save lives. Anyone who is willing to expose their child to the coronavirus for their partisan politics should have child protective services called on them.

Meanwhile in Afghanistan, women don’t have the luxury of debating covering their faces. In Afghanistan, mandatory means mandatory. Here, you can at least opt out with a doctor’s note. Even places that require vaccinations will give you an out if you have proof of a recent negative covid test. There are no excuses in Afghanistan. Women in Afghanistan have been beaten for not covering up. When people start beating you for not wearing a face mask at Walmart, let me know.

The real irony is that the people in the United States protesting mask mandates and vaccines while shouting about freedom are closer aligned to the Taliban than they are to democracy. MAGA and the Taliban are both cults.

While our failure in Afghanistan is an international embarrassment, so is the refusal to be vaccinated in this nation. It’s a huge embarrassment to the world that so many Americans refuse to protect their children in service to their cult.

Being outraged over having to wear a face mask is a first-world problem. Your being a whiny little…baby…is a luxury.

Be Cruel To Your School

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

When did scientists, doctors, nurses, and educators become the bad guys? Why are the people trying to save lives being vilified by the right? A few days ago, I wrote about how stupid our nation is. This doesn’t help. And not only are we stupid as a nation, we’re horrible and vile.

We are still in the Trump era. President Biden defeated Donald Trump in the election but that was just a battle. The war isn’t over. Since the Trump era began, the right has been given clearance to be as ugly as they possibly can.

Right-wingers protested at a school board meeting last week in Tennessee. As members of the school board who advocated for mask mandates were leaving, they were barraged by right-wingers threatening them, shouting that they’ll be “watching them” and stuff like, “We know where you live.” When did this shit become OK? But then again, these are the same people who defend terrorists.

Every day, it seems MAGA gives me something new to make me disgusted with my country. Do you remember when parents used to care for their children and wanted to protect them from being sick? Now, MAGAts will risk the lives of their children for their dogma.
