Death camps are coming for the unclean unvaccinated.
Persecution is now cool! On Octover 6th the Los Angeles city council joined a number of other cities in California as well as New York and voted to restrict access to most of society for anyone who has not gotten vaccinated against COVID.
Under the new law, businesses must require proof of vaccination when customers enter indoor facilities, including coffee shops, gyms, museums, bowling alleys, spas and a range of other venues.
…The L.A. rules allow customers to submit written exemptions for religious or medical reasons, but businesses must require those customers to use outdoor facilities, or to show evidence of a recent negative coronavirus test to come inside if no outdoor facilities are available. Customers who have no proof of vaccination or exemption can still enter briefly to use the restroom or pick up a takeout order, according to the ordinance.
Businesses that violate the rules can face escalating penalties under the ordinance, starting with a warning for a first violation, then a $1,000 fine for a second violation, eventually reaching a $5,000 penalty for a fourth or subsequent violation. The fines would begin to be enforced starting Nov. 29, according to the ordinance.
The rules apparently allow the unclean to enter supermarkets to buy groceries, but I would not expect that exemption to last much longer. Fear is what is driving these rules, not rational thought or actual data.
Moreover, the illogical of the rules is mind-boggling. Why is it forbidden to enter a bowling alley without a vaccine card, but you can still buy groceries? And why can the unvaccinated still enter to use the bathroom? Does COVID not spread when you need to pee?
Since March 2020, when the panic began, the claim has repeatedly been that the oppressive lockdowns, mandates, mask requirements, and restrictions of social activity are only temporary, and will help to slow and even stop the spread of COVID. And yet, none has worked, because none of these policies ever had the slightest chance of working. Respiratory illnesses like COVID spread, and eventually fade out as the general population gets the disease, survives, and becomes resistant to it. To make believe you can stop it is to imagine you can stand on the beach and hold back the tide with a shovel.
What makes these oppressive edicts even more absurd is that they are based on contradictory assumptions. First, they assume that if everyone gets vaccinated, everyone will be protected from COVID. Yet, they also assume that the unvaccinated are dangerous and can infect everyone, even those who have been vaccinated.
Which is it? Does the vaccine make you safe, or does it not? If the former, why bother banning the unvaccinated? If you have gotten the vaccine you thus safe and cannot get sick. You should be able to hug the unvaccinated, or even someone who is sick with COVID, and be immune.
And if the latter then why bother with these rules at all? The vaccine doesn’t protect you anyway, so you might as well allow everyone to go about their business normally.
In other words, these dictatorial rulings are insane, and are not based on any rational thought.
And yet, large swaths of the American public are demanding them, because they are afraid and need some make believe law to make that fear go away.
It will never go away however. These tyrannical laws cannot accomplish what the fearful desire. And until these fearful people recognize that reality and resolve instead to face their fear, that fear will rule their lives. The fear-driven will move for more and more restrictions and stricter and stricter rules against those who disagree with them, until we are living in a governmental hell far worse than anything Orwell imagined in his novel 1984.
We might even be there now.
