IDIOT LIBERALS ABUSE ALL OF US, IGNORE LOGIC IN SHUTDOWNS, DON'T BE AN IDIOT
Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, is the most prominent critic of the coronavirus models used to paralyze the American economy and restrict American religious life. He has stated in national interviews that he has been "waiting for the reality and the data to start to hit people." He accuses the governors of New York, Illinois, and Oregon [he could include Virginia] with creating "unrealistic benchmarks" for lifting COVID-19 restrictions, and he contends that the response to COVID-19 is not justified by the real data available on government websites.
Even that data is overblown. For example, coroners in Pennsylvania demanded that the COVID-19 death count be corrected downward after the deaths of hundreds of people were attributed to the virus even though they were never tested for it. The media will report that more cases are being diagnosed, while omitting to say that the increased numbers are due to increased testing. Liberals push their fallacies and half-truths in an apparent effort to make as many people as possible dependent on big government. Destroying the economic base of the private sector will do that, is doing that, to our inevitable regret.
...............(Let us remember) Patrick Henry. His 1775 speech before the Virginia House of Burgesses in the run-up to the American War for Independence is considered one of the most brilliant, animated, eloquent, and important speeches ever given on American soil. In it he said, "Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" What a far cry that is from snowflake timidity, which cries "You can take my liberty if you'll just promise to keep me safe."
It's time for Americans to wake up to the truth, stop being timid, and start being patriots again.
