One Powerful Message Sent! Masking is Corporate Fascism

Not everyone is as brave as my friend Fred, so the next best thing is to send his post and his message out as far and wide as you can!

Fellow blogger Fred Elbel was kind enough to give me permission to repost the story of his recent excellent adventure with United Airlines.

From Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform:

Masking corporate fascism

Yesterday after visiting family, I flew back via United frequent flyer miles. As I entered the airport, I dutifully donned my two-layer micro fiber cloth mask with an embedded internal pouch for an additional HEPA filter. Probably the best mask aside from an N95. I had a nice chat with the attendant at the check-in desk who tried to convince me that I was not really as ugly as my Real ID driver’s license photo.

Fortunately, I was not arrested for failing to don my mask while masticating an expensive but unidentifiable sandwich. I then made my way through the serpentine TSA line and had a brief but polite discussion with the TSA agent who asked me to remove my mask in order to verify that I matched my ugly license photo.

When boarding the plane, I scanned my boarding pass and an alarm immediately went off while a red alert flashed on the gate agent’s screen. It was a sentence of about 10 words, beginning with “Do not board with…”. I couldn’t read the rest. I thought oh, great, I’m being cancelled for my political beliefs just like Nick Fuentes.

Fortunately, the gate agent gave me a huge smile and waved me on. The flight was exceptionally smooth and fast; we must have caught the jet stream running in our favor. I settled into a sound sleep slouched insecurely against the window only to be awakened by two stern flight attendants urgently rapping my arm. I thought, what – was my snoring disturbing the other passengers?

Pulling out an earplug, I heard one of them mumble something about masks while urgently thrusting a handful of bright blue masks in my direction. Puzzled, I could only utter a surprised “what?” Mumbling again, she pointed to her nose – that is, to an unsightly protrusion that vaguely resembled one beneath her all-encompassing face diaper. In ape-like mimicry, I touched my nose, the lower 3/4″ of which was proudly and tightly covered by my very own diaper.

I pulled my mask up a bit and made an obvious effort to re-seal it against my nose. This seemed to satisfy her. Nevertheless she wrote down my name and gave me an official-looking notice regarding mask rules.

Was it something I said? No – upon reflection, all my interactions were polite and friendly. Perhaps it was something my mask said. Yeah, that must have been it:

“This Is What Tyranny Looks Like”

Ironically, United exhibited the epitome of corporate tyranny – that is, Fascism. Today in America, the Deep State and the Democrat Party are delegating enforcement of tyrannical censorship and coercive societal control to corporate interests. The degree of control being exercised is too aggressive for the State to attempt directly, at least for now

Both Mussolini and Hitler merged state and business leadership into a form of corporatism referred to as Fascism. We see it today with Big Tech censorship, corporate cancel culture, and corporate-infused Critical Race Theory (CRT). Corporate interests benefit hugely from this power arrangement, and the resultant monopolistic control.

As a result, we have the insane requirement that people in airports and on planes wear ineffective face masks which the CDC says are not necessary. Americans, once a free people, must now kotow to corporate directives.

I bet the next time I fly somewhere on holiday, the same thing will happen and I’ll be banned from flying for the rest of my life. All for visibly displaying a token of resistance to our Fascist masters.

Again, encourage bravery!  Send either my post or Fred’s far and wide.

Fight back!

COVID-19 Damage Control: At What Cost?

Editor: This is a guest column by my friend Bob Enos of Willmar, Minnesota.  Regular readers of Refugee Resettlement Watch may remember Bob who compiled a great deal of information on the economic cost of migrant and refugee labor and wrote several articles for RRW in the past.

COVID-19 DAMAGE CONTROL: AT WHAT COST?

Watch Mr. Enos give a presentation to a county board meeting in 2015 about his economic analysis of the cost to the county and state of the immigrant labor that benefits large global corporations at taxpayers’ expense. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2015/07/14/minnesota-concerned-citizen-speaks-to-county-government-leaders-about-refugee-resettlement/

As the hysteria-driven lockdowns of coronavirus persist, constitutional conservatives are slowly emerging from under their beds. Spear carriers for social isolation and economic constriction in America have reacted to critics with the same derision accorded wearers of red MAGA hats. In less than thirty days, Americans have been persuaded to swap Constitutionally-guaranteed civil liberties in exchange for the illusion of protection from a virus that has touched a relative few.

This is not to say that the virus does not exist, nor that pockets of America do not suffer disproportionately from the health consequences of COVID-19.

However, neither the vast majority of Americans, nor family, friends, or neighbors, have been infected by the virus. Yet, the American public is expected – no, required – to support a one-size-fits-all national response that, to this writer, is akin to killing a flea with an elephant gun.

As international travel is acknowledged as the world’s COVID-19 courier, I’m led to an inescapable conclusion:

COVID-19 is, first and foremost, an unintended consequence of three factors, in order of significance: Open Borders movement, business globalization, and international tourism.

Presently, the nation of Sweden has the most relaxed posture in western Europe regarding COVID-19; she has no lockdown whatsoever. Many media pundits are nearly gleeful in reports of higher infection rates in Sweden compared to the rest of Europe. However, in its daily briefings on the virus, the Sweden Department of Public Health insists that its infection rate would be much lower, had the government enacted screening measures early on, for Swedish vacationers returning from Italy.

According to the state department of health here in Minnesota, our rate of infection as a percentage of the population is the lowest of any state in the nation.

The mean age for deaths attributed to COVID-19 here is 86. Pre-existing health problems accompany nearly all the fatalities, and the majority have been residents of nursing homes.

This past week, several meatpacking companies throughout the Midwest – names like Smithfield, Cargill, Tyson, and Brazilian conglomerate JBS – reported closures of plants in which anywhere from 20 to 80 employees tested positive for corona virus. What do nursing homes and meatpacking plants share in common? The majority of workers in both industries – industries hard-hit by labor shortages- are recent arrivals from third-world nations; populations for whom international travel is commonplace.

New York City – the epicenter of COVID-19 in the United States – is also America’s symbol for the “nation of immigrants.” Additionally, she is a preeminent international business center. Business travelers from across the globe travel in and out of New York City by the hundreds every single day.

Finally, New York City may be the most popular tourist destination in America for foreign travelers. Walk down Fifth Avenue on any given weekend in Autumn if there is any doubt.

Is it any wonder, then, that COVID-19 fatalities in the New York Tri-state area make up as much as half of the nation’s COVID-related deaths?

What we are witnessing is the unintended consequence of unbridled, open borders migration, be it for business, escaping third world poverty, or tourism.

Globalists are hard at work on damage control. Their messengers of doomsday scenarios will claim victory regardless of the outcome. If the death count is high, they’ll say “we told you so”. If the death rate is low, they’ll take credit for convincing the world to heed their warnings.

And let’s not forget the icing on the cake.

Leftists the world over are not about to pass up an opportunity to exploit a crisis that could hurt the President’s re-election campaign. If turning a blind eye to civil liberties sends President Trump packing and derails the conservative/national sovereignty contingent, well, you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette. Collateral damaged be damned.

And the collateral damage? There are many versions of death. Nearly all agree that economic recovery will be long and drawn out, at best. The fallout will certainly be the death knell for many rural towns throughout the Midwest that have been hanging on by fingernails for years as it is. Hospitals will go broke. Record numbers face unemployment. Children are kept from schooling. Small retail businesses and the hospitality industry are crushed, many for good. Socializing is verboten. All in the name of containing a virus for which attributable deaths in New York’s Tri-state area (a population of nearly 20 million) make up roughly FIVE ONE HUNDREDTHS OF ONE PERCENT of its population.

My late mother, a nurse, had a one-liner of dark humor she picked up on the hospital floor: “the operation was a complete success, and the patient died.”
