I seriously doubt it - the are people who were beaten by just wearing MAGA hat.
I wouldn't like to have a target reticle on my face.
Second, especially at early stage of epidemy, it would be very bad PR to hoard resources for perfectly fine masks, to turn them into MAGA masks.

Standard pneumonia needs long-term treatment, because it leaves your lungs damaged.
Covid is, in a lot of cases, a severe pneumonia.

Have more than 120,000 people died from wearing a MAGA hat? Have more than 2.5 million people been sick or injured from wearing a MAGA hat? People didn't stop wearing MAGA hats just cuz a couple of the nutters got whopped up on. But an awful lot of the nutters didn't wear a mask because the Orange one told them not to.
In my work with the defendants (at the Nuremberg Trials 1945-1949) I was searching for the nature of evil and I now think I have come close to defining it. A lack of empathy. It’s the one characteristic that connects all the defendants, a genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow men.

Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy.

4 of the last 5 days there has been over 40,000 new virus infections in America, meaning over 208,300 new infections, there are only 12 countries that have accumulated more infections since this all started and America did it in under a week. Dr Fauci warns the senate of a possible 100,000 US cases per day. Not good, not good at all.
Stay at home, stay inside but most importantly stay safe.

Meanwhile, as if to score a point for stupidity, South Dakota is planning a 3th of July celebration at Mt. Rushmore. Republican Governor. Noem says 'we will not be social distancing' at celebration with Trump. Masks are optional. This at the same time as the data that felter just posted above. :roll:
Noem promised a "large event" set for Friday on her Ingraham Angle appearance, saying "we told those folks that have concerns that they can stay home." As for everyone who comes, "we'll be giving out free face masks, if they choose to wear one," Noem said. "But we will not be social distancing."

Go back several weeks ago and it was the virus only effects old folk, well it is turning out that this is not quite true. The other day there I mentioned that there were post virus lung problems, well it turns out they are starting to see a rise in neurological problems. The really troubling part is where the lung issues were mainly with people who were hit badly by the virus, these neurological problems are also effecting the ones that had mild virus issues and not just older vulnerable people either. You do not want to catch this virus, you may think you are safe because you are not in that vulnerable group, well think again.

If all these health issue that are beginning to be seen are caused by the virus, America you are royally screwed and it's only going to get worse there. They are looking at potentially hundreds of thousands of people with respiratory or/and neurological problems. At the end of the day a lot of people are going to be wishing they wore the mask after all.

How many supporters would Trump lose if he wore a mask? Probably quite a few would be my guess. These are the people who would wear a mask if the government banned masks. Tell them to gather in close proximity and they will isolate themselves and insist that their free expression overrules the knowledge of experts acting on the behalf of us all.

Wasn't USA just after widespread protest of tens of thousands in multiple cities across whole country?
At this point Mt. Rusmore celebration is a small stupidity of entire special olympics of stupidity.

You can say what you want, but BLM protest ended the lockdown - at this point no one will stick to it anymore - you can just prepare some cardboard with BLM and when police show up you say you protest :P (already there is dozen of such stories).

Old and unwell (ekhm..fat) people should think for themselves and self lockdown.

Black Lives Matter is turning to Bad Lungs Movement in a stylish way, I see...
And I agree with Mr. Who, thinking about an healthcare point of view, BLM protests and rallies have been untimely even if socially understandable.

The fact is noone can do anything to actually stop people from gathering unmasked not respecting social distancing. Just about ten infected in a rally like that are enough to start a carnage, but nobody is even warn this people about that, everyone still minimizes covid despite the 7-figure number of infected, which is probably a lot less than the actual size of the pandemia.

What is a WORLD GRADE stupidity is that BLM protest spill outside USA.
To some point I can understand how "special" the USA is on that matter, but having BLM protest across the Europe?
UK police brutality? UK police is the most castrated and harmess police in the world.

It's almost like someone intentionally want to sabotage the lockdown...and it's not Trump (unless you think Trump has power across the whole Europe internal affairs).

Fun fact is that people interested in lockdown sabotage is the same people opposing equality movements.

In my opinion, when you're looking for the people causing worldwide rallies, the first place you need to watch is where no rally is happening.

Just to lighten the atmosphere a little, I'd like to share a little coronavirus joke I read somewhere:

Q: What's the best sport to take up during the pandemic?
A: Fencing. You wear a mask and gloves, and if anyone comes within 2m of you, you poke them with something sharp.

I honestly don't know what to say about this as it is a pretty atrocious thing for anyone to do right now. Boris Johnson's father has travelled to Greece under the pretence of it was essential travel as he wanted to make sure a property he rents was Covid safe. A few problems with this apart, from it's against the UK's current regulations is that Greece itself has a travel ban on anyone from the UK. So he first flew to Bulgaria before travelling on to Greece to get around this inconvenience. He will have to spend 14 days in isolation when he gets back, which I seriously doubt he will do as he does not seem to think these rules apply to the likes of him. So I think I know where he should be spending those 14 days, in a place called jail, maybe his son could join him to keep him company. :evil:


Edit in:
50.7 k new cases in the US yesterday. :o

As a person from Eastern Europe I find it really amusing when people from UK or USA find out that politicians and their families apply double standards and are above plebs.
It's almost like finding the Santa Claus is not a real thing.

It's not about the discovery, it's about holding them accountable instead of rolling over for their overlords.
