Haha only serious...

Various right-wing armed militia forcibly enter Michigan's state capitol building and House chamber, while state police guard Gov. Whitmer in place in the building. Pictures and video do not show social distancing or PPE being high on their priorities.

I haven't heard any reports of any of that crowd being arrested, shot, sat on, put in chokehold, had evidence planted on them, or even getting a parking ticket.

Someone pointed out that after the Black Panthers did much the same in Sacramento, some NRA-approved gun control legislation got signed into law by Gov. Reagan.

The cops are basically signalling they are fascists too.

(CNN)An emergency proclamation requiring face masks in stores and restaurants in Stillwater, Oklahoma, was nixed after store and restaurant owners received threats.

The proclamation was issued Thursday. Among other things, the order made businesses require patrons to cover their faces to combat the spread of coronavirus.
But on Friday, Mayor Will Joyce softened the rule to encourage, not require, face coverings, after several reports emerged of employees being verbally abused and being threatened with physical violence while trying to enforce the order -- all in just three hours of the rule going into effect.
"Many of those with objections cite the mistaken belief the requirement is unconstitutional, and under their theory, one cannot be forced to wear a mask. No law or court supports this view," said City Manager Norman McNickle in a statement. "It is further distressing that these people, while exercising their believed rights, put others at risk."

When this news first started to appear, with people saying the White House liked a "cubic model" my brain automatically converted that to a "cubic splines model", because it couldn't even see the possibility that someone would be stupid enough to fit a cubic polynomial to this data, and be taken seriously.

Covid-19 apparently causes Kawasaki in children.
Some covidiots are confusing this with Coxsackie virus, and saying that it is part of the coverup.
