Well, you win some, you lose some.
Actually, it turns out, you just lose everything.
The freshly imposed and poorly received nighttime curfew must stay to curb the spread of Covid-19, Dutch PM Mark Rutte has said, condemning protests against it as “criminal violence” and vowing to treat participants accordingly.
The new restrictions came into force over the weekend, triggering a wave of violent protests across the Netherlands. Speaking to reporters in The Hague on Monday, Rutte condemned the unrest, insisting it was not a proper protest.
“This has nothing to do with protest, this is criminal violence and we will treat it as such,” Rutte stated, as he reiterated the need for the restrictions.
The country entered its very first curfew since WWII on Saturday night. The rules have been immediately broken at several locations, with the protesters even torching a Covid-19 testing site.
Democracy has spoken, folks.
Sure, it’s a totally deranged, ghoulish act of dehumanization to tell an entire nation of adult men they’re not capable of making decisions about risking getting the flu while doing things after dark.
But here’s the thing: you voted for him, so he’s allowed to dehumanize you.
If you didn’t want to be treated like a child, incapable of making adult decisions, by your government officials, then I guess you should have voted for the other guy.
Just go home, wait a few years, then go vote for someone who says he doesn’t think he’s your mommy.
I know it’s stupid, it’s unfair, farcical and so on, but after thousands of years, human beings discovered through science that democracy is the only way to truly ensure the safety of podiums. So this guy is your mommy.
Well, we assume it’s this guy. We don’t actually know who he is, because he never appears in public without a mask. Science is working on new ways to confirm that the masked man on the TV is really your one true mommy, and not just some bandit from the street who is bossing you around because he’s a sadistic madman and not because he loves you so much and wants you to be safe from the flu.
Until science determines a solution to this problem, just assume that any man, woman or tranny on TV in a mask is your mommy, and do whatever he, she or it says.
