Double-Speak & Masking

“Wearing a mask is patriotic”

President Orwell Trump

“War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength”

Three Slogans of Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth”

With each passing day we slide further and further into the labyrinth of doublespeak; that linguistic form of the Hegelian dialectic where in one sentence it is possible to construct the thesis, antithesis, and synthesis, and that without blushing. Why say something particular in a sentence when one can say everything at the same time in a sentence?

So, per the latest doublespeak above “wearing a mask is patriotic,” when in point of fact wearing a mask is the height of dumbassery. Of course the very idea of doublespeak is that it can only work on a population that is characterized by the quality of dumbassery. Where people actually understand ratiocination, reason, and basic logic doublespeak cannot gain traction. Trump has nothing to worry about though as it has been scores of decades since people in America, generally speaking, weren’t dumb-asses.

It doesn’t matter that there is not one RCT (random control trial) experiment that shows that masks stop the spread of respiratory viruses. In fact 14 studies show that they do not work. No science has determined that masks can keep the spread down. You have been told that masking might save your sorry dumb ass but there are no scientific studies that show this. Newsflash — Viruses are not filtered out by a mask.

Some people want to say that masks stop the stuff spewed forth through the coughs and sneezes of sick person. However, a sick person coughing and sneezing inside a mask is still spreading viral sickness to those around them. As such sick people should stay home and yes, if they absolutely must go out –mask up. However, healthy people have no need to mask up, because they are healthy.

A little secret that all the fear-mongering hasn’t told is that virus can escape through masks, just as mosquitoes can fly through chain links fences raised by morons who think that chain link fences might stop mosquitoes from getting on their property. Just as cauldron can stop your macaroni but can’t stop the water so a mask can stop bacteria but it can’t stop viruses. Am I going to fast here?

In short a virus will escape through patriotic super-man mask with the result that those who knew they were safe because Christians were loving their neighbors by wearing their dumb-ass masks can still get sick. Just imagine these morons with a 104 temp moaning … “But I wasn’t anywhere where people were not wearing masks.”

Now, for those like my former brother-in-law who used to carry around with him, wherever he went, a can of Lysol to disinfect the silverware at the restaurant we might be eating at, if you’re really concerned about the virus give up on the doublespeak and do the following.

Good hand-washing and hygiene are what you should be obsessive compulsive focusing on. If you are that concerned about the virus that you think everyone should wear a mask then there are things you should be doing to protect yourself. You should completely shower your whole body and launder your clothes every single time you are out in public. Wipe down your cell phone, your purse, and everything you brought home. Wipe down the seat of your car that you sat in after going in and out of stores. Then put on a hazmat suit as you view the latest episode of “No Brains Here.”

Further, masks should not be touched or handled. They should be trashed or laundered every time they are removed and should be removed by handling only the earpiece. If you touch the face part of it (whether when wearing it or taking it off or storing it) you have just contaminated yourself and if you don’t wash your hands you contaminate everything you touch. At that point, you the mask wearer, become the vector for disease spread. Hand-washing after removal of a mask is imperative.

So you see dumb-ass mask wearer the mask is not saving the day. The mask is not preventing you from getting sick. The mask is not saving the life of your 80 year old Granny. However, none of what I have told you matters does it? No, you’ve convinced yourself by your constant quaffing of the propaganda that you are being both patriotic and the kind of Christian that Jeebuz loves.

The mention of “Christian” reminds me that you’re also being told by your clergy to “mask up” because in such a way you can prove you love Jesus and your neighbor. Of course that’s just more dumbassery with an ecclesiastical twist. Speaking, as someone with inside information on the relation between dumbassery and clergy I can tell you after being around the clergy all my life in the closest of settings that most clergy are the pace setters when it comes to being a dumbass. If you love your souls don’t believe your clergy on much of anything. These are people who have one very narrow field of knowledge and even in that one very narrow field they only know what they know by way of the abstract. Their ability to concretely apply what they know in the abstract is close enough to nill to not bother to notice the difference.

As it pertains to you dumbass mask wearers — not that you care — but all the the masking mandates do is condition you to accept the coming vaccine and the contact tracing regimen. Let me spell this out for all those who are yelling at me and mine to put on their masks; all you are doing is making the next transition to the next Governmental imposition easier. One will soon hear from you dumbass sheep who are embracing this masquerade as you bleat and yell at those who don’t speak double-speak “just get the damned shot” and “take the tracking tattoo.”

Honestly, I couldn’t care less if warning after warning you decide to be assimilated, however, at the very least you could quit yelling your dumb-ass masking shibboleths at me and mine.

Maybe if I try some of my own double-speak on you it might work. “Not wearing the masks, is wearing the masks,” or, “the grosser the mask the better it works,” or, “the stupid are not in danger of getting sick.”

  1. St.Peter identified Jesus as the shibboleth of God: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Acts 4:12. – TIOBL, page 700.

    1. It’s much easier to be stupid than to realize leaving embarrassingly irrelevant comments doesn’t help your cause.

      Seriously …. I genuinely hope that this is supposed to be a joke.

      It is much easier to raise a mask to your face than to lower the lid of a coffin
      It is much easier to stand there and look like a fool than to open your mouth to often
      It is much easier to say stupid things that having nothing to do with the matter at hand
      Than it is to provide something of substance so proving you’ve the brains of the damned
