1. Was this licensed?

It seems crazy right now to have giant crowds like this.

2. Not sure - not sure it matters these days (having a license).

3. No, probably not.

Looks like Chicago will be spiking again soon.

4. I think this was from the Black Trans Lives Matter protest today and

organizers made it clear that masks were required for those participating. Most who attended seemed to have complied with that request.

(I assume that is what the pics are from )

5. The photos in the OP don't look very mindful of the pandemic.

Hard to tell about masks, but thereís definitively not much distancing going on.

7. Since the killing of George Floyd...

the percentage of people wearing masks at protests has been far greater than those wearing masks at the local hardware store. And certainly no comparison to some states. Masks are required when you can't social distance.

9. I had no idea masks made it ok to gather tightly in large numbers.

Thank you for explaining the science to me. I was not aware that masks nullified the need for social distancing, or that protesting tight up against people wearing masks is safer than being in some states.

11. My ilk? You're suggesting I'm a fan of Mike Pence?

I suppose that seems a fair counterpoint to my suggestion that gathering in huge groups during a pandemic isnít advantageous to slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Well played. And you canít even see my MAGA hat.

13. Thanks, but I'll opt for consistently applied science

...rather than some kind of mental doublethink to make myself feel better about hypocrisy.

And Iíll go on consistently voting for Democrats, as I have for the last 30 years. A fan of Pence? Fuck you.

15. tight up against people?

When I've attended protests, I've never been 'tight up against people'. And yeah...everyone wearing a mask, is way safer than being out and about in some states. So sorry you dislike protesters, but they're still out there, so maybe you'll get a hot-spot yet.
