‘FOR your safety, we have closed the changing rooms,’ the announcement came, in the well-known High Street clothing store I had wandered around (without a mask).
But don’t worry, there is still the ‘28 days to return policy’ should buyers regret a purchase, or if the clothes don’t fit because you haven’t had a chance to try them on.
How long is this madness going to last? They can’t keep little girls safe from being blown to bits at a pop concert by an Islamic terrorist carrying a large rucksack and seen praying, but in no way will we allow these girls to enter a changing room to try on clothes.
Those clothes could be teeming with the oh-so-very-dangerous Covid virus. The risk that Covid presents to a child is zero. Zero risk.
If Covidism is a religion, then ‘staying safe’ is the first commandment. Thou shalt stay safe at all times – which is why we won’t let you try clothes on, we won’t serve you a coffee in proper coffee cups and we will demand that you wear a filthy mask.
It is all to stay safe, we are told. Be in no doubt, this is an exercise in State power under the kindly slogan: Stay Safe.
The second commandment of Covidism is that if you don’t care about yourself, then at least make others safe. This is why you can’t see your granny in a care home or have your lonely uncle over for Christmas Day – to keep them safe. Just let them die of loneliness instead.
‘We are all in this together’ is just a reworked version of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini’s line: ‘All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.’
Do you get that, folks? You are either on the team or you are a danger to the team. And once we know you are a danger to the team, we can start with the usual ad hominem attacks to discredit you – such as you are a loon / crackpot or conspiracy theorist.
Further, we are to have total and utter faith in the Ayatollahs at Official Sage, for they are the Gods of Science and nothing else shall govern our lives: not morals, not ethics and certainly not religion.
Then there are the even madder crackpots at ‘Independent’ Sage (sorry, there I go with the insults, my bad) who want secondary school pupils to wear face masks in the classroom.
Can you think of anything more cruel than imposing the mask of submission on teenagers? And it’s not to keep them safe, we know that. It is ‘to get them while they are young’. This is what the fascists always do: turn the youth into true believers. And this time, the belief is in Covidism.
So the youth must be told: stay safe, we are all in this together and you must wear your mask of submission or you might kill your teacher.
Teenagers have been told all summer that merely seeing their friends makes them granny killers, so the Face Mask of Submission is the logical next step. And then they will have them heart and soul: the new Covid Youth.
