As we anxiously await COVID-19 vaccine approval from the FDA and flounder in the middle of a pandemic with inept governmental rules, lockdowns, checkpoints, arrests, and threats of arrests, the government (with the dems leading the way) is doing the very thing that the ACLU warned about in 2008 when discussing President Bush’s pandemic plans.
They are making the United States citizen the enemy instead of the virus.
The enemy is COVID-19.
The enemy is China.
And the enemy is now also our tyrannical government.
In a critical report about President Bush’s plan to control epidemics, the ACLU didn’t seem to appreciate “the disastrous consequences of public health policies built around a vision of sick people as the enemy.”
They went on to say “Rather than focusing on how government can work with individuals and their communities to be healthy, public health policymakers now often emphasize the need to take tough, coercive actions against the very people they are charged to help. This approach not only targets people as the enemy instead of the disease, but also encourages health officials to believe that government cannot do much to help people in an epidemic.”
The government is viewing the people as the ones personally responsible for the spread of a virus even though it’s a virus and is going to spread regardless of what the government disallows people to do.
And these evil politicians are washing the blood off their hands when they are directly responsible for killing people like Democratic Governors Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Andrew Cuomo of New York. These governors sent COVID-19 patients into nursing homes, killing thousands.
While the government’s mitigation strategies get proven worthless, they continue to blame us for the increased cases of infection. It’s OUR fault. We’re not wearing masks enough. We’re not staying home enough. Blah, blah, blah…
So their rules get worse and worse, more and more oppressive, limiting our freedoms and trampling on our rights.
While the government rules over us and they shame us, they also disregard their own rules.
Many in government have decided that they don’t have to follow the rules – they can go on trips, not wear masks, get haircuts, visit with family and do whatever they want as (while trying not to get caught). But the rest of us peons must comply with their edicts.
So where is the ACLU anyway?? Sure, they complained about Bush’s epidemic plans to demonize American citizens but now that they’re being implemented in real life, the ACLU is nowhere to be found.
You would think that the ACLU attorneys would be out there en masse suing the governmental tyrants.
I did a quick Google search on “ACLU” in the news and they are doing nothing. They’re concerned about protecting prisoners in jail from getting the virus but that’s about it.
I don’t see them putting out any press releases about the oppressive government’s rules and how they are targeting us for blame.
Because we are not living in the 1800’s, we have to be out and about and live our lives. We have to purchase food, medicine and other supplies to keep our lives going. That does not make us the enemy.
Some people who are on governmental assistance or are retired can stay home as much as they want and get everything delivered to them. The rest of us can’t.
The government, in it’s efforts to keep us healthy (and that’s debatable), doesn’t care about our actual lives – our jobs, our businesses and the logistics of where we need to go and what we need to do every day.
And God help anyone who won’t comply with their lockdown rules. Especially if you push back against the government in a public way and get media coverage that is reporting on your resistance.
Then they’ll make an example out of you. You’ll get fired, you’ll lose your business license, you’ll be in BIG TROUBLE.
Because they can’t control the virus, they have decided to control us.
