Yeah, the wonderfully alliterative title of this post is a quote from boriquagato, a Puerto Rican blogger who has made the observation that many of us have made — it’s over. The explosion of COVID cases in the vaccinated populations of Blue America has revealed once and for all the pointlessness of the restrictions we’ve been living under for the last two years, and have revealed the deeply flawed nature of the mRNA vaccines so many millions of us have been coerced into taking. The evidence is simply too extensive to ignore or conceal without sounding like a conspiracy theorist. Many of the most perfervid covidians are backtracking now, frantically trying to retcon their positions to make it seem like they always knew this was going to happen and they aren’t actually psycho hypochondriacs. Even our Schläfrigführer Joe Biden seems to be giving up, presumably because he got wind of the epic smackdown he was about to get from SCOTUS over his purely politically punitive (so many p’s in this post!) vaccine mandates. Wiser people tell me we should just pat these folks on the back and let them surrender with dignity, but sorry, I’m of the “hear the lamentations of the women” school of battle, and I can’t help but notice that the mumbling, pants-shitting little fascist and his lickspittle apologists have a knack for embarrassing surrenders. May their descendants wear their shame for generations for what they’ve done to this country, and to the world.
So it’s over. We can expect life to go back to normal in the US, particularly on the free side of the Blue Curtain, as the vast squishy political middle begins to feel empowered to push back against the nomenklatura that have levied this nightmare upon them. No more masks, no more mandates, no more quivering Karens asking if you’ve had your fifth booster yet.
UNLESS, that is, you work at a university.
Where you may have gotten an email similar to the one I got from my bosses a few days ago, saying that you’re going to be forced to wear masks on campus again in the Spring. And you’ll never get to take the mask off unless you get vaccinated, irrespective of whether or not you have naturally recovered from the coronavirus.
So — just to be clear — as the rest of the world comes to the realization that the current crop of vaccines are incapable of mitigating the spread of the virus at all, and that masks have no impact whatsoever on the progress of the pandemic, and that natural immunity is vastly superior to the worthless vaccines, a medical university doubles down on pushing that garbage on the unfortunates laboring under its authority. Even though nobody else in the state is wearing a mask. You can walk into any business at the periphery of campus and not see a single face diaper anywhere. But, no, TRUST THE SCIENCE HEATHEN! Put your mask on, or how else will people know you are one of the good guys?
Here’s another delicious quote from that official email:
If you are not vaccinated and want to be able to unmask indoors when the requirement is lifted for the vaccinated, please make an appointment for a free, safe and effective vaccine provided by Employee Health and Student Health Services. Available vaccines offer undeniable protection against the worst outcomes of COVID.
Emphasis mine. Note how they have steadily backed off from any claims about the vaccines actually affecting community spread. They are no longer “free, safe, and effective” either. They just offer “protection against the worst outcomes of COVID”. I wonder how long they can hold that position before they have to move the goalposts back again?
