Right-wing Idaho activists burn masks, claiming COVID restrictions infringe on liberties

I guess the last year and change doesn’t mean anything to them. “The health of other people? What’s that?”

On the plus side, I think I found my new favorite Los Angeles Times writer. Richard Read reports:

The protesters appear to inhabit an alternate reality, one in which they claim that the coronavirus is no more dangerous than the flu and that public health directives based on science are dictatorial.

That’s some top-notch truth and shade this man is throwing.

I’d ask these people what they think of their fellow citizens’ right not to become infected by the callous actions of these dumb crusaders, but that sort of thing would mean they’d have to think of someone other than themselves.

Dr. Francisco Velázquez, Spokane Regional Health District interim health officer, in an interview for this article:

I don’t think the intent is to violate anyone’s rights, the intent is mainly to protect all of us. I do respect their opinion, but the facts are the facts.

The facts are the facts, but their opinion isn’t respectable. It’s harmful.
