“When Did Flattenng the Curve Turn in to Finding a Cure?”-Dave Portnoy
My apologies for the profane language in the video, but it’s a delicious primal scream from Dave Portney, owner of bartsoolsports.com and extremely cathartic for those of us who believe the extended lockdown response to Coronavirus is utter insanity.
I honestly think there are a lot more of us out there who feel this way than those who don’t, but we’ve been conditioned to think this position is wrong and immoral and so we self censure. This has to stop. Now.
The only way the pro lockdown fever that’s affected much of our leadership will break is if enough every day people who feel that what we are doing is wrong stands up and says so. Most politicians act out of fear and self interest; when they see their support base evaporating, they change course.
This is so far beyond the normal political nonsense we argue over and the era of withholding opinions out of politeness is not an option anymore. Government enforced poverty, shattered lives, increased spousal and child abuse, sky rocketing suicide and addiction rates, the scandalous trampling of civil liberties; this is THE issue of our time and more of us have to start acting like it is. And I know many of you are doing this already.
The negative effects of shutting down the largest economy in the world will play out for years to come. The least we can do now is stop the bleeding by ending the shutdown. Contact your governor and local representatives of course, but pro lockdown cultural narrative set by the MSM and most of the left must be overcome too and the only way to do that is by having uncomfortable conversations with friends, family and neighbors.
If you agree with what Dave Portney is saying, please share his video everywhere. If you don’t feel comfortable with the rough language, than express the sentiments in your own words and let everyone know how you feel.
