Coronavirus Contact Tracers Are Facing Death Threats And Comparisons To Nazis On Facebook And YouTube
“Contact tracers are the new Gestapo,” one post said.
Possum Hollar, y’all.
ISD has also uncovered death threats against contact tracers posted to Facebook. One, posted to a group called Reopen Missouri, features an image of a gun with the caption, “Public Service Announcement…When the Contact Tracer arrives at your door…This is the proper greeting.” Another post asks, “Question, who will shoot at Contact Tracers if they try and Force You To Comply?” The first reply: a GIF of a man enthusiastically waving a raised hand.
The LATimes email thingie:
As California rapidly reopens its economy, health officials have made clear the only way to avoid a wave of new coronavirus infections is with strict safety rules, including social distancing, limits on the capacity of businesses and wearing face coverings when around other people.
Yet a mask rebellion is underway in some parts of the state, with residents pushing back on mandatory face-covering rules even with coronavirus cases on the rise and as more businesses open their doors and some people yearn to return to old routines.
The potency of mask politics became clear this week in Orange County, where the health officer resigned after weeks of attacks — and a death threat — over her mandatory mask rules. Amid intense pressure from the Board of Supervisors, her replacement rescinded the rules and substituted them with a strong recommendation to wear masks in public settings.
Now, of California’s 15 most populous counties, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara, Alameda, Sacramento, Contra Costa, San Francisco and San Mateo counties require mask wearing in public, while Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Fresno, Kern, Ventura and San Joaquin do not.
But there’s increasing evidence that face coverings are essential to allow a broader reopening. Places that have kept coronavirus transmission under control, such as Hong Kong and Taiwan, have virtually universal wearing of masks in public. And a recent study out of Germany found that face masks reduce the daily growth rate of reported infections by around 40%.
Anyway, it seems that the culture wars now extends to public health beyond Libtard Mask-Wearing Snowflakes. These cultist goobers are gonna get us all killed.
