Full scale ahead, right over the cliff

I was amazed reading these comments from Laura Ingraham yesterday. I am going to print what I read verbatim, with my annotations in red. What world does she live in? We all want things to be "back to normal" but does it serve any useful purpose to pretend it is so, when it is plainly not?

Here is the headline: 

College football fans pack stadiums send message "we're done" to Fauci and Biden. We're onto the public health sector's sick, twisted game, said Ingraham.

The 2021 college football season kicked off this past weekend and with fans packing the stadiums, Fox News host Laura Ingraham said, "It felt like we were living in America again," on Tuesday's "Ingraham Angle." 

We're in the midst of the resurgence of a deadly pandemic, the delta strain. Hospitals are full, more and more young people are getting sick and dying. And Ingraham giddily applauds people getting jammed together in close proximity at football stadiums. Sounds like Governor Noem, pre- Sturgis, can't wait for the big heehaw and the resulting death toll.

The opening weekend did not go unnoticed as the largely un-masked crowds were slammed by critics, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, who voiced his concern saying, "I don't think it's smart."

"It was evident in stadiums across the country that America is ready to move on from COVID and the fear-mongers who want to keep us apart and afraid," said Ingraham.

Perhaps those fear mongers are merely trying to keep you alive? 

The "Angle" host decried the Americans who have died from the coronavirus, but despite those lost, we cannot lose America to a "new normal police state."

"Earth to Joe," Ingraham stated, "We're done. We're onto the sick, twisted game the public health sector has been playing on America."

How dare they try to keep people from getting together in large groups and killing each other?

Ingraham pointed out that 75% of adults have now gotten at least one jab of the coronavirus vaccine and argued that even though millions more have naturally been immunized, Americans are still "treated like pariahs if they don't submit to being vaxxed."

More like seriously mentally challenged and suicidal than pariahs. 

"We've endured 18 months of lockdowns and capacity restrictions. Mask rules and business closures. Churches and schools shuttered. Concerts and sports cancelled," she said. "Everyone is trying to have fun again."

Have at it. 

Ingraham previewed the coming weeks, saying many Americans will be returning to college, tailgating, seeing old friends, and singing their college fight songs, driving home the point that humans are "not meant to be alone, cocooned off from one another."

In the words of Mick Jagger " You can't always get what you want." 

"It’s time to start living again", said Ingraham. "If the rest of you prefer to stay home and shut-in, triple masked with latex gloves, that’s your choice – but we're exercising our right to make a different one."

We'll miss you. Congregate away. But please stay away from the rest of us. Enjoy the football, hope the teams can stay on the field for the whole season.

There is a good video in The Washington Post ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/interactive/2021/911-conspiracy-theories/?itid=sf_opinions ) that discusses how 9/11 conspiracy theories morphed into our current wars on reality. In essence folks experience events or explanations that they just can't accept so instead of trying to figure out what is real they go after the narrative by creating an alternative narrative that makes them comfortable. We are all prone to do things like this but when things evolve into a war against evidence supported reality we get problems.
