Thousands of people of all ages and walks of life have taken to the streets to protest the current lockdown. Even so, the mainstream news media thinks every one of these individuals is a “racist Nazi” who secretly wishes to spread COVID-19 to minorities so that more “black and brown people” get sick and die.
Panelists on AM Joy expounded on their hateful opinions without shame, with one declaring that anyone who wants the government to open up now also wants racial minorities to die. Another declared that the protestors are “the Fox News, Nazi, confederate death cult rump of the Republican Party.”
Statistics show that, in all 50 states, there are literally millions of people who want the economy to reopen, at least to a certain extent, and it’s hard to believe that every single one of these people is a racist white nationalist. The overwhelming majority of these individuals aren’t calling for all restrictions to be thrown to the wind. Rather, they believe that responsible adults can manage social distancing and common-sense safety guidelines without government guidelines dictating what jobs are essential or not.
Unlike the liberal panelists on the AM Joy show, these protestors need to work if they want to be able to eat and keep a roof over their heads. They don’t have $24,000 freezer/refrigerators with $13-a-pint ice cream to turn to, and the stimulus check doesn’t offer the funding they need to survive long-term.
The longer the shutdown drags on, the more likely it is that these people will find themselves without basic necessities, and the harder it will be for them to find work in the future. That’s why they are out protesting. The motivation is survival, not a morbid desire to see other human beings suffer and die.
The panelists missed the all-important fact that the quarantines won’t stop the spread of coronavirus; indeed, they aren’t meant to. They are only meant to slow the spread of the disease so there are enough medical facilities for those who need them. As many states have already found, the horrific predictions of many research institutes haven’t come true. Millions of people aren’t dying, and hospitals aren’t overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.
Sadly, more people of all races and ethnicities will likely succumb to the pandemic in the coming months. However, forbidding people from selling goods and services isn’t going to stop that. It will only make life extremely difficult for everyone else.
While liberals like to proclaim they believe in tolerance, the truth is they only tolerate those who agree wholeheartedly with everything they say. Anyone who dares to voice a different opinion is mocked, trolled, harassed, or worse. Media personalities are only inflaming the situation and making matters worse in the long run.
