Listening to the first part of the show today I felt a bit sad for @adam for his frustration and how he expressed it about the trolls, lab techs etc....for not speaking out. I mulled over my own actions to shut down my Facebook account.
The more I listened to the show the more pissed off I got.
IT IS TIME FOR US TO SPEAK OUT AND TELL THESE FUCKING FASCISTS THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
That includes all the extremists on the left and the right who want to control us.
It's tough to be non-confrontational. A "true-believer" sees your unmasked face as a personal attack on themselves, even before a word can be uttered.
I've been met with, "They can shut us down if you come in here without a mask." ("They" presumably means the county health dept. or the governor.) What's a good response to that? From the business-owner's point of view, I'm threatening their livelihood.
