Yes, the Constitution is suspended in total.
People got really scared of the flu, and thought that it was really going to kill a lot of people in nursing homes. The only way anyone could think of to protect the elderly and the people with chronic illness was to lock everyone in the country in their houses.
It wasn’t that thing about flattening the curve. That was a misprint. We’re just staying locked up forever now.
After a news conference by LGBTQ activists critical of Mount Sinai Hospital’s relationship with a religious organization during the coronavirus pandemic, the city’s police commissioner and the mayor said “protests” would not be tolerated.
About a dozen activists with the Reclaim Pride organization took to First Avenue in Manhattan outside the hospital to hold a news conference Sunday slamming Samaritan’s Purse for being allowed to set up a field hospital.
About two dozen police officers showed up and forced the crowd to disperse. Reporters, who were allow told to leave, said social distancing rules were being followed at the event.
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea was asked Monday about the move and if it infringed on Americans’ freedom of speech and freedom to protest.
“You’re talking about some of the values we hold in the highest regard in this country and certainly in this city, the right for people to gather, the right to free speech and the right to protest,” said NYPD Commission Dermot Shea. “But now comes the bad news, we’re in a pandemic and executive orders have been issued, these are laws that have been passed down through executive order to keep people alive, while we greatly, greatly respect the right of people to protest, there should not be protests taking place in the middle of a pandemic by gathering outside and putting people at risk.“
Yes. You have to surrender your freedom for safety.
People who think they have freedom must be punished, because they are against safety. Freedom might be important, who knows. Maybe having a job and eating food is important. Sure. But nothing is as important as preventing chronically ill people from dying of the flu.
That is the most important thing ever.
If You’re Still in NYC…
Then I would figure out how to get the hell out.
This is not going anywhere good, I can tell you that.
We are all now rats in a massive, insane experiment, but I’d rather be anywhere than New York City.
Remember this: Right now, today, is the easiest any of us are going to have it for the rest of our lives.
It is only going to get worse, then get worse again, then keep getting worse and worse.
Even if we win, it’s going to be hell.
So please, plan your life accordingly.
