'Here fire, you hungry?' Idaho Covid protesters burn masks in front of capitol

Source: Guardian

  • Children encouraged to burn masks in state without mandate
  • Republican-led states move to relax coronavirus restrictions

    A least 100 people gathered in front of the Idaho state capitol on Saturday to burn masks, in a protest against measures to limit infections and deaths caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

    Some groups, predominantly rightwing, say mask mandates are a restriction of their freedoms. Health experts say they help slow the spread of the disease.

    More than 170,000 Idaho residents have been infected with the virus in the last year and nearly 1,900 have died. Johns Hopkins University puts the US case count at nearly 29m and the death toll at more than 523,000.

    Videos posted on social media on Saturday showed adults in Boise encouraging children to toss masks into a fire. One child could be heard to say: “Here fire, you hungry? Here’s another mask.”

    3. Population of Idaho: 1.78 million

    170,000 people infected mean that almost 10% of the people in the state have been infected.
    10 percent!

    And these idiots... with their kids...
    It's just so goddamned frustrating spending all this time trying to get people to take care of THEMSELVES, let alone other people.

    6. These are the types of people that don't take the whole dose of antibiotics when prescribed..

    because they feel better, thus stimulating mutation and further worsening infection.
    The salt of the Earth, the common people, you know, morons!

    8. Meanwhile the kids with smart parents...

    are studying for the future, volunteering, networking in their community, planning school courses for the new green energy economy, learning about science and reality and common sense.

    These parents are preparing their kids to hate, not think for themselves, and fail.

    there is Republican stupid.

    Go check Darwin's grave-- listen for spinning sounds.

    Seriously, what's next? No protective car seats for kids! No seat belts for anyone! Helmets are for sissy pants! A little knock on the head will do them good.

    The level of bizarre behavior with these mask defying, Covid denying idiots is pathetic.

    because is it so scary and true! These wackos would not only rewrite history to suit them but would gleefully stamp out any opposition to their efforts.

    This toxic culture of stupidity, hate, intolerance, ignorance and racism will destroy our country completely if we let it happen.

    38. Interesting thing about this bullshit and the Civil War

    In the Civil War, millions of white people took action to “free” themselves from the yoke of democracy because of their racism, their hatred, and their intolerance.

    These poor dumb bastards are all that plus stupid. (Yeah, there were lots and lots of harebrained, stupid rebels, but the leadership, the plantation plutocrats had a real plan and a real (if horrid) vision). But these folks, the Q-Anon believers, the Trump-cultists, the damned-fool militias don’t. They are just hateful and stupid. They attack the Capitol Building, as just one example, thinking their Chosen One will issue them pardons for trying to topple the Federal government. They refuse to wear masks -- and the news has not a few cases of the ones who got sick and lamented their choice to “own the libs” before they died; and when they get arrested they act like the ignorant, stupid children they are, whining about the food, about the fact that they’ve been arrested and jailed, about how the freaking miss mommy and daddy.

    The have no over-riding ideology to comfort them in their cells or in their ICU beds. Only a growing sense of their own stupidity.

    14. I am partly cheered by the hope that 10, 15, 20 years in the future,

    some of the kids involved in the mask-burning will look back on the incident and damn their deluded parents to hell for the breach of trust, the complete abrogation of morality, in the parent-child relationship.

    that parents that don't require their children to wear masks at school or in public, during a lethal viral epidemic could be charged with Child Abuse.....

    I would love to give each of these children's despicable parents, a blow by blow accounting of our friend's 15 YO daughter's last five months of her post covid life......and the prognosis for her future life.......

    This GOP "it's all over" approach, reminds me of Bush Jr.s ridiculous "Mission Accomplished" fanfare.
