Post What happened to the media shaming people for not wearing masks ?
Why has that stopped all of a sudden?
Why was the media shaming a right wing protest before this all happened?

Is the pandemic over?
Isn't a pandemic a very, very serious event?
Of course it is.

Wasn't the left more in favor of lock downs and the right more in favor of a very abbreviated lock down?

Hers is some stuff about that from the media that didn't age too well.

It's racist not to wear a mask:

Protesters protesting during a pandemic should't receive medical care:

Protesters are responsible for spreading the virus:

Protesting is suicide

It's worrisome:

Reckless

"Mind-mindbogglingly selfish"

"Protesters don't care about people's lives"

https://www.washingtonpost.com/


"Protesters are twisting the idea of liberty"

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/202 ... archy.html


Protesters are like typhoid mary:

Protesters are foolish and dangerous

Never mind, I found out the answer.

According to Infectious disease, public health, and medical professionals:

Quote:
White supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID 19

So, specifically racism contributes to the spread of COVID 19.
Stamping out racism with massive protests during a pandemic will help stop the spread of this racist pandemic



Gotcha, "experts"

No actual criticism of protesting during a pandemic though I notice..



Try again and look to match the slimy hypocrisy my examples make obvious.
