Yesterday I looked around me - on public transport and in the store - and there was no respirator anywhere. They disappeared - pure magic.
At the same time, the numbers of "sick people" are the same as in 2020 in December, when we almost had an apocalypse here and some predicted streets full of freezers with corpses.
And now a question, my dear fellow citizens: why did you wear those rags before, you had them all the time until last week, when the minister graciously told you - "Take them off, citizen!" and he waved his hand and you put them down?
If you weren't afraid, you knew it was completely pointless and ineffective nonsense, but you wore them, then you're simply cowardly hypocrites.
If you were really afraid of the disease, which is legitimate, then what happened? After all, the dangerous will not go away when someone says "Take off the citizen!". After all, according to your favorite experts, the numbers are almost freezing...
So isn't it more that you're in the minority now and feel embarrassed? Like pipes, like outcasts and like fools? Well, it's not easy being in the minority when everyone is pointing at you.
And believe me, if you didn't help build the hysteria here for two years, and everything remained on a voluntary basis, then some masks would not be a topic and everyone would not care what you wear on your face.
But why, why? Don't belong in either category?
Then I have one more for you, but you won't like it at all - a mindless fool who just blindly obeys any nonsensical orders.
Oh, I know! You will argue: now it's different - it's actually a harmless mutation, the population is wiped out and then the miraculous vaccination... You need to find an explanation and excuse for your behavior at all costs, right...? 😉
And what if in a few weeks they come with the fourth dose and for some reason you realize that it's not the real deal and you don't want to continue the game anymore and overnight even with three doses in your body, you become the ridiculed anti-vaxxer who is nowhere to be found won't let go That will only be a bastion.
Sometimes look in the mirror on purpose, remember these feelings and all these humiliations, and then look into the eyes of your children, because thanks to your cowardice, they had to go through all this too - and unfortunately, it will be waiting for them again in the fall!
I didn't wear a mask because it was a clear message - SHUT YOUR MOUTH... MAKEUP AND GREEDY.. And that's something I can't get past, my pride and conscience didn't allow me to do it, and I also feel that if I wore it, I would develop some psychosomatic illness, because I would be doing something that was absolutely against my will.. Every trip to work was indeed a huge stress, being constantly ready for someone's attack, but I had a striking answer and the joy when I was able to do it again, to stand up for myself.. With terrible disdain, I watched people who only had a mask on half the pole.. Hell, I either stand behind it or put it on and keep my mouth shut. I also noticed that the majority of people without masks are women. I guess we're bigger fighters, I don't know.. Every time someone rode without a mask, I tried to support him and stood nearby, and there were already two of us. My message, don't be a jerk and stand up for yourself..
Yes, that's right - even in the Healthy Forum, the majority of supporters are women.
I didn't wear a mask either! And I wasn't afraid at all. When someone pointed me out. I didn't react. I call it covid because I have already experienced something similar twice. I am also not vaccinated and never will be. Mirka
I haven't had it on my lips since last March, when they deployed a larger caliber in the form of respirators. Until then, I pulled the scarf up a bit so it wouldn't be said. I stopped going to one grocer, who had announced a week in advance that he would no longer let me into the shop with just a scarf on. He would certainly have been involved in PS VB under the previous regime. I left one paramedic because of an unfitted muzzle because he was nasty to me about it. I also changed drugstores because of it. I needed to go to the dentist in January and I also went without a mouthpiece. And the dentist was perfectly fine, even during subsequent visits. It's really just about the people. In the fall, however, I'm already preparing for a different strategy. I will not run away from the self-proclaimed bullies, but I will try to ignore them and still smile at them, that I understand their deviation. A smile is disarming and can piss off so many people that it's worth it.
I never wore a face mask anywhere, and neither did my children, luckily still in kindergarten. I must say that I have never had a bigger conflict. I always answered with a smile that I don't wear a mask and if it bothered me, I left. And I'm not writing here about shops, but about the authorities, the City Hall, which is in the same building as the MP station or the post office, etc. It's true that a lot of people wanted to argue and there were some who even scolded me. But I didn't let the evil drag me down, and most gave up when they realized it. I won't convince anyone or disprove anything, but everyone should know for themselves that fresh air is indispensable and it's one of the few things they can't charge or ban. Unfortunately, most people are a herd who let themselves be led by a shepherd named Media and blindly follow him even when he leads them among a pack of wolves. I wish everyone from the bottom of my heart to see through and find the light within themselves.
Thank you very much for this article Mr. Tománek; for I have been thinking for a few days about what annoyed me more - whether in the past the covered faces or now, after the sovereign's condescending permission, the faces without respirators. I thought to myself... "be glad that no one in public transport looks at you stupidly anymore..." but somehow the disappointment swells inside me more 🙂 It's beautiful to see, it's not about the fear of illness, but just about not having a problem by chance and be obedient. And that is a much worse finding for me than if half of the people were still wearing respirators. I don't believe in change anymore, social. networks full of opponents and courage, but until the last day I was either the only one or one of two who did not wear a veil in public transport and shops. But most importantly, it's spring and (sometimes) sunny 🙂
I didn't wear it anywhere, they called the police on me in the middle of nowhere, they almost stoned me to death, saying that I had no brains, etc... I wanted to go home by bus from my family, but they didn't take me. He filmed the driver and filed a criminal complaint and refused his new respirator that he offered me to ride with him. He came here half an hour later by train and got home without a mask. People are manipulated idiots!!!
I agree, if someone resisted, they have my admiration. The pressure from media, society, people, television, family and others was enormous. I'm glad that there is peace now, at least for a while. The aftertaste that remains is worse.
For example, masks were never worn on the train, only as a warning if someone sat in the compartment and alerted the conductor that another passenger was not properly wearing a mask. Likewise on the plane, I will probably never forget the trip from Italy, when a young couple from Slovakia personally booed me for so long that I was not wearing a respirator properly, until the flight attendant had to come and bring me a classic face mask. Likewise, a group of Czechs traveling back to Prague with the words - we're not going to argue, don't make trouble here, we just want to get home.
It is hypocrisy at the highest level and unfortunately, it is very widespread in our country. That's why there are also a lot of psychological problems and illnesses, because these people can't talk to anyone, because it would damage their self-image as a hero and they wouldn't be able to do that anymore. Public transport in Prague itself is a chapter unto itself, someone in the management of public transport thought of using announcements for passengers to constantly repeat the message about the need to wear a face mask. Can anyone imagine how worn out those people are after almost two years of listening to it every day? It was easy to get around it, just put headphones in your ears and ignore it, but many of the passengers already have a conditioned reflex, whenever they start a report, they wince. This is just unbelievable, like so many other things, and it's disgusting, yes disgusting and nauseating. I admire anyone who manages to keep moving in this topic and not get upset about it. I don't know what to do with it. Perhaps just to restore satire and start systematically defending those things. I tried to write some rules and publish them for others - hopefully it will help them. Fingers crossed for everyone.
JJ. That's right, please put on that mask so we can get home. I listened to that on the bus before they kicked me out. In stores, it's classic: "Well, what if it ends next week, now it's still worn. We have to wear it here all day, so why can't you?” They do not at all understand the absurdity that they have shown with their argumentation.
It was not at all easy to walk without a mask……..many people were annoyed and many people warned me that it should not be like this. I thanked them for their opinion. No, I always stayed on top of things because each person treats others differently. She was lucky to have the "better" people and even sometimes dialogue resulted - we know it's useless, but the employer demands it from us...etc. In a way, I felt sorry for them. I don't know what will happen in the fall……I prefer not to even try to guess, let alone burden my mind with it. Let's enjoy the summer, let's enjoy the togetherness and try to connect more than to criticize each other. We are only human and although humanity is unteachable…….let's try to fix it.
Yes, you are exactly right. Also, the whole family has known it for the past two years.
It wasn't easy, but it was possible - and everything else is just bullshit and excuses.
And if there was really nothing left to do, the Scheherazade model from the curtain is a solution for free breathing. 😉
So I put on a mask only in the event that, for example, the saleswomen repeatedly warned me and threatened to be escorted out of the store by security. I wouldn't want to experience that. To be grabbed, dragged across the floor… and whatnot. In public transport, the same, except after a warning from the driver. And a Vietnamese woman even took a pepper spray on my 23-year-old son without a mask in their pidi shop. When using such violence, everyone will think twice whether to wear or not. Each of those attackers has a boss above them who gives orders and if they don't want to lose their place, they have to obey... and that boss has a higher one above them... they fear each other... and it goes higher and higher!!!! How is it nicely said in Czech: The fish stinks from the head!! PS I am not vaccinated and I did not catch covid even when I served a sick member of the common household.. So where is the buried dog? In the immune system!!! Not in the ministers' offices.
No, the buried dog is in each of you—not in ministers.
I know it's not easy, but you didn't have to go to stores where someone was rude to you, and what you like is also your business.
I'm sorry - "someone ordered me, so I'm doing it" I don't accept, because I know from the experience of the whole family that it just works and all are excuses!
And yes, it's not free. For example, my wife was forced to leave education after 20 years.
Exactly. It's just about us, about each of us, how we approach it. I also didn't feel good when people were unpleasant to me, even though I kept a 2m distance the whole time.
I even got punched in the subway by a middle-aged woman who waited until she got off and came right up to me, punched me and walked away. It took me about two months to find the courage to get into a vehicle again. I preferred to walk.
Well, that's really a power... ;(
Well, for example, the salesgirls threw me out on Friday afternoon without a respirator, even though they had been canceled since Monday, the driver didn't let my son get on the bus. That's why we wore them.
Well, you are written about in that article.
It doesn't make sense that you didn't wear them everywhere. It was enough to humiliate only where they required it. It's not even certain that they didn't want to serve you. It was enough to say: "Sorry, I don't carry it" and they didn't repeat their request. They have to serve you according to the law. So you only had to wait a minute and the salesman came after a while and asked what you wanted. He was also afraid that you would complain about him.
I have to admit that when I was always the only one without a respirator in the supermarket in our small town during the winter, the looks of displeasure, fear and contempt were not at all pleasant for me. I am a non-confrontational person, so every purchase was an adrenaline rush. I wondered if it was worth the trouble and if it wouldn't be easier to put it on "for a while". It wasn't. My conscience simply did not allow it. Once you understand the senselessness and perversion of systemic covidist measures (not to mention "vaccination"), there is no turning back. However, I thank the authorities that I can shop in peace again, at least during the summer, and that they have allowed even those who have not yet understood to take a deep breath of fresh air.
It's very similar with me, maybe even worse, because I don't understand even two families, many times I feel hypocritical and question everything with my conscience, it happens that I lose the courage to fight it against everyone, I'm alone in this and it's harder than when you have family support.
