Well, some poor woman lost her shit when she saw a couple outside not wearing a mask and assaults them;

An irate woman reportedly maced a couple in a California dog park because they weren't wearing face masks while they enjoyed a picnic lunch together. The disturbing incident happened Thursday afternoon when Ash O'Brien, her husband Jarrett Kelley and their three-month-old puppy visited Rhodes Dog Park in San Diego.

This is what happens when you scare the crap out of people and obsess about masks.

She should be introduced to the lady nutjob from Phoenix who slapped a Salvation Army bell ringer for saying 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas'. San Diego nutjob sounds like an MSNBC viewer, and the Phoenix cuckoo bird is definitely Fox Nation. Perhaps, in the spirit of reconciliation, they could share their perspectives and work toward a positive and mutually beneficial alliance. Or mace and beat the shit out of each other, in which case I want it on YouTube.

Not really. This poor woman has been triggered into a violent response due to the non stop bombardment from the media about wearing masks and has given countless other busybodies an excuse to be obnoxious to people they don't know.

1. She is irrational.
2. Wearing a mask is rational. Countries that followed a rational nation-wide policy, including masks, have beaten covid-19 to death. In the US, we're at 150,000 deaths and counting, and we are putting an intolerable burden on our health care providers.

You are complaining about people being obnoxious?

this could also be what you get when an inordinate number of people stupidly downplay the virus, and politicize masks, and this poor woman came to think that she's the only one fighting the good fight, and grandma's life depends on her taking action because The Assholes won't...

https://gothamist.com/news/two-men-arrested-attacking-trader-joes-employees-who-asked-them-wear-masks


Two men have been arrested and charged after allegedly attacking multiple employees at the Trader Joe's location in Murray Hill this month because employees asked them to wear masks.
An NYPD spokesperson says the incident happened around 8:50 p.m. on July 14th at the Trader Joe's located on 32nd Street near 3rd Avenue. Multiple employees asked the two men, who have been identified as 34-year-olds John Carrero and Alejandro Escobar, to leave the premises because they weren't wearing any facial coverings, which is store policy.
The men refused, and instead allegedly turned hostile: cops say they pulled a mask off the face of a 49-year-old male employee, and Carrero hit a 28-year-old female employee in the head with a wooden paddle. One of them pulled the hair of a 57-year-old female employee, and threw objects (including baskets) at other employees. Escobar allegedly threatened, ”Don't make me get my gun,” which cops said caused "fear and alarm to employees and customers inside of the store." The men finally left the store, at which point they grabbed a chair to attempt to break a store window.

"The employees are downright afraid to ask people to put on masks," Holtham told reporters on Wednesday. "Believe me, if you ask someone to put on a mask, it's like asking them to throw their gun away."

As stores, states, and local governments encourage people to wear mask in public, retail workers are bearing the brunt of the backlash. And with such clashes on the rise, there have been a number of violent incidents endangering the lives of workers.

Family Dollar security guard Calvin Munerlyn was shot and killed in early May at one of the retailer's Michigan stores, after telling a shopper that she needed to wear a mask to shop at the store. The shopper's father shot Munerlyn in the back of the head later that day.

Last week, a Waffle House customer opened fire, shooting an employee at the Aurora, Colorado location, after being turned away by a cook for not wearing a mask.

So, who is nuttier, the woman described in the OP, or the assholes who have shot people after being asked to wear a mask to protect others?

The real problem is that we have too many idiots in the US, who when asked to wear a simple face covering to help decrease the spread of a potentially deadly virus, they resort to violence.

Talk about a senseless overreaction, and probably not an appropriate reaction in any way at all. In Ontario it is perfectly legal to be in parks without masks, provided you keep social distancing from people who are not part of your "bubble".

In Victoria, Australia we now have compulsory mask wearing due to massive increase in cases.

Last night in Frankston a woman (not a lady) was seen not wearing a mask by a policewoman. The policewoman told the woman nicely she needed to have a mask on.
The woman attached the policewoman, ripped out a clump of hair, rammed her head into the ground a couple of times and gave a severe concussion.

We have too many idiots around.

Another Karen, in the form of an overweight male, berates a young woman for not wearing a mask in public;

The 22-year-old, who goes by Duana W and boasts 11,000 followers, filmed an overweight bald man confronting her in a foul -mouthed tirade on the platform at Tottenham Court Road station on the London Underground on Sunday. The video starts with the man walking down the platform, shouting: 'There might be other people who are scared to confront you. But I'm not. F****** sort your s*** out, yes film me because you're a d******* without a mask. You're a c*** putting people's lives at risk.'

DailyMail

I guess that's where we are at now. Some men feel they are entitled to scream abuse at women and call them a cunt for not wearing a mask. Pitiful.

OMG... Loud mouth busybodies... in the world?! This is a brand new epidemic! Five more documented cases of this, and we might as well implode the planet!

FYI, your quality of life will likely increase if you stop looking at the DailyMail.

An obnoxious, stout-chested man has been seen berating all the doctors who don't go along with his uneducated hunches about covid. Be on the lookout.

1) It's the Daily Fail, it probably didn't happen.

2) I see no Karen here anyway.

Another Karen that can't mind her business;

A fistfight breaks out in Manhattan Beach after a couple confronts two men for not wearing masks while eating their lunch outside. And the bloody clash was all caught on video.

FoxLA

The two guys are sitting outside eating food and this deranged woman and her boyfriend confronts them, abuses them and throws coffee at them.

If a woman threw coffee on me, even for NO reason, I might think she was being an asshole but I wouldn't physically attack her. Makes this guy look like a big pussy to me.

There was no reason for either of these assholes to have said or done anything to the guys sitting have a bite to eat. They should have mind their own business and kept walking. But of course the mouthy girl thinks she is so entitled that there are no consequences for being obnoxious. But in any event, he attacked the boyfriend.

I watched the video twice and you can see him pushing her pretty aggressively.

Punching the boyfriend was useless and the act of an asshole.

I'm not saying the woman was NOT an asshole for throwing coffee. She was.

Yeah, because she slapped him and tried to slap him again.

Probably but he brought it on himself.

Another Karen that was triggered.

Anyone, except for maybe a little kid, throws coffee on anyone then they should expect to be hit in retaliation.

I would never hit or attack a woman unless I or an innocent were in certain danger. Actually, the same applies to a man.

Do you believe not retaliating is a virtue?

No.

I am simply not driven to violence very easily.

I will react with as much force as I can muster if I am in danger. Or an innocent. A woman throwing coffee on me would most certainly not be a reason to react with violence. I would probably call her an asshole and try to talk sense to her. I would try to understand why she did it.

I'm not preaching a sermon here, just explaining my own choices of behavior.

And I still think a man flailing and pushing a woman is acting like a pussy.

Sounds about right for the control freaks. There was a report about a parks and rec department or some such in Wisconsin suggesting people wear masks during Zoom meetings. Obviously not in order to prevent spread but to set a good example. Fucking idiots and shame on the morons that go along with it.

I wouldn't mind if all the morons refusing to ever wear a mask died. Better for the gene pool.

However, since they can get other people, completely innocent, intelligent people sick, they are giant douches.

Yup. I don't mind if they commit suicide, just don't take the rest of us with them.

Sandusky, Ohio, is half an hour away from me. Last week, a group of Nomaskies had a demonstration in front of the town's biggest grocery store and then walked in en masse to shop. The store manager told the press that he had no legal power to evict them, but I wonder if he couldn't have called the police about it. I don't know what the cops would have done, but I'd like to see the issue joined. I also think the demonstrators did it all wrong. It's so obvious: they should've gone in not only maskless but completely nude. Obviously society has no claim on them.

We live in interesting times. People going about their business, not wearing a mask are cast as villains etc and the righteous want to sic the police on them. People trashing the place and screaming at diners having a meal while holding a BLM sign, well that appears to be socially acceptable in some parts. And of course, lets not mention Nancy Pelosi who thinks that the rules don't apply to her. Why not sic the police on her ?

I know some anti maskers, and they don't oppose mask wearing because it's an inconvenience, or because they are anti-social or because they don't care about the welfare of others. The ones I know at least are convinced that the mask-wearing is an exercise in the grooming of society, to see how obedient people can be, and how easily controlled. I have two family members who are susceptible to conspiracy theories, who both firmly believe that the whole virus thing is highly exaggerated (not non-existent), that the stats have been manipulated, and in some cases made up. These are people who believe that society is under the thumbs of a handful of wealthy and powerful puppetmasters. Soros and Gates are mad evil geniuses. They view the refusal to mask up as an instance of informed nonconformity. It is everybody else who are ignorant. The sheeple. "You won't fool meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" is their battle cry, not "Fuck you all I don't care!".

Of course I can't speak for all of them, and I'm not defending their motives or behavior. Just explaining what I see and hear of it, day in and day out. When people insist that the refusal to wear a mask is driven by laziness, selfishness, or contempt for others, I am sure it applies to many, many people; but it doesn't apply to all.

Most people do not accept the disruptive stuff by BLM that you're talking about.

However, the BLM guys won't kill you. The virus-deniers might.

Yeah, I see a lot of these sorts as well. They are really losing the plot. Bill Gates, apparently, is essentially some demonic figure bent on mass murder like some sort of comic-book super villain. Honestly, it has pushed me towards a genuine misanthropy which I don't think I'll ever shake.

I've also noticed on my daily walk that used paper masks are the new roadside litter. I mean people can't find a trash can?

They're in every parking lot -- the big ones, like WalMart's, are strewn with them. Looks like an apocalypse has happened and the victims dropped their masks as they fled for their lives. The everyday truth is probably that people sneezed into their masks and threw 'em out.

I am relieved that I have not seen a single disposable mask in any parking lot around here. When the pandemic started, people were wearing gloves at the grocery store and I did see some gloves thrown out in the parking lots, but now that we know that the virus is probably not acquired from surfaces, I almost never see anyone wearing gloves these days.

The stores near me have all put large trash baskets right near the exits. That may be where people are putting their disposable masks. Those damn make are always way too big for me, so while I have some in my car for emergencies, I very rarely wear one. I found some well made masks in a small size that fit me perfectly. I've noticed that as a lot more people are now wearing masks in my small city, our rate of new infections is going down.

Yeah, I've seen many claim that mask wearing is about Government control (I suppose that is why doctors and nurses where them). The paranoia is quite harmful because they think they are protecting America in endangering it.

Very few here, either. I found one out on a trail but I suspect it fell out of somebody's pocket rather than was deliberately discarded.

There is a bit of self-correction though. The Governors usually react (though the reaction is coming later with each wave) at some point to save our hospitals which quells the growth. And we are seeing that action taking place now. But a million cases in less than a week is definitely disappointing.

And why are there still idiots wearing chin diapers?

Except they have almost certainly reacted too late to keep the system from crashing, and rules without enforcement mean almost nothing. These days I see at least a 20% dick-nose rate locally.
