Moments after a Florida federal judge vacated the CDC federal mask mandate for transportation, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki was asked the obvious question about airline travelers right now. What does this mean for passengers in the immediate future?
Psaki noted she was unsure about what steps could be or would be taken, and she deferred to the FAA and Dept of Homeland Security who will need to make immediate decisions. The most substantive aspect at 11:49 of video, prompted:
The White House is very committed to all their mandates around COVID-19, the mask mandate is no different. From the perspective of the professional political left, the theater of forced mask wearing represents the visible power and authority of government to rule the lives of the irrelevant proles.
Any pesky legal rulings, that seek to reduce or remove the power of government, are viewed by the left as arbitrary and insignificant efforts to block their almighty power of government. They can choose to wear a mask if they want, but that’s not really the issue behind the mask mandate. The true power of the left is in the ability to force everyone to comply to their whims regardless of individual freedom.
The collective is based on an inability to be comfortable with self. To mitigate their instability, they project.
The people relentlessly committed to winning will always defeat the people who just want to be left alone…. until those who want to be left alone have finally reached the point of saying “no more’, and that’s when things get ugly. However, as soon as things get ugly, the leftists are ideologically trained to cry victimhood. That’s when they need the media most.
Every abuser has a plan until they get punched in the mouth, then the abuser cries ‘victim’. Until the leftists are destroyed, we must all become numb to mercy and comfortable with punishment and brutal ridicule. If we really want to avoid violence, we need to make shame hurt again.
If we want to stop accepting things, we need to stop accepting things.
Control is a reaction to fear. Think in terms or politics and society – the fear behind leftism is the fear that someone might withhold things (opportunities, money, whatever) from me. A fear that if you live your life in a way I dislike that it might affect my life. A fear that if you get that job, there will be nothing left for me. A fear that if you make tons of money, it’s means there’s less money out there for me.
People who believe in leftist ideologies seek control as a means of trying to create guarantees and safeguards against those circumstances they fear.
Modern “liberals”, leftists, try to control the world and people to enable their comfort and happiness. Which, as we know, is an endless quest. Trying to control others does nothing in the way of making oneself happy. Trying to control others is a key attribute of narcissism.
By extension, voting in this mindset, so that government can try to control others, will also – shocking – not lead to a happier, more comfortable life.
The leftist believes the system must be perfected in order to enable success. Therefore, disappointment is channeled as anger and blame at the system. Voids are left to be filled by faith in the govt, which they surely then want to come in and “fix” things.
And therein lies the roots of love and fear respectively.
For the conservative, when life presents great struggles, he knows he has the power to surmount them. Happiness stems from internal strength and perseverance.
For the modern leftist, when life presents great struggles, the system failed, therefore they were at the mercy of a faulty system, and they believe that only when the system is fixed can their life improve. Happiness is built on systemic contingencies, which they will then seek to control or expect someone else to.
One blames himself. The other blames anyone and everyone but himself.
And there it is. There’s where the meanness comes from. The leftist ideology causes that person to cast anger at the world when things go wrong or appear “unfair.” He constantly chooses only to see the “injustices” – and that makes for a very miserable, mean, blame-casting existence.
Their need for COVID is a mental disorder.
