Leftists on the Prowl During Shutdown?

I just had a troubling conversation. I've gotten to know a local restaurateur. She's one of the most hard-working people I've ever known. Chinese immigrant, beautiful, charming, kind and always working. She's expanded her pub recently and acquired an old, historic beautiful restaurant next door to rehab and reopen after it's been closed for many years - the structure is an old mansion on a hill. I'm very fond of this lady and really respect and admire her. During our COVID shutdown that was mandated by our governor she still hands out food for pickup - can't have anybody in her beautiful establishments. She has kept on all of her staff - "Their family members have all lost their jobs! Who will pay their bills?" She's losing money every day. Here's what shocked me...She says that when somebody on her staff takes a break and removes their mask there are people who drive by and shout at them and flip them off. Some of these people bark out commands that they must put their masks back on. I wonder what in the hell is behind these people. It's not as though there are customers standing there too. Are they being put up to this? Do the lefties want to really see some economic collapse from all this? I can't piece it together. Those with a totalitarian bent seem to have really lost their damn minds. This bothers me.

    Fear is a great motivating factor. People usually fear what they don't understand. Biden would be better to preach understanding but he isn't that smart or coherent. We aren't going to ''move on' but we will 'move through' this.

      Biden will be a mess. They'll end up putting him out in the rose garden in a rocking chair with his apple sauce. Or, they'll just hold him upright like "Weekend and Bernie's" and do whatever the hell they want in the fringes.

    A little data item from The Spectator UK-

    Australia:
    Year 2019 to end of October, deaths from flu -- 943
    Year 2020 to end of October, deaths from flu -- 36
    Year 2020 to end of October, deaths covid associated-- 907

    Look at the 2020 data again, Add 907 to 36, get 943.
    "Coincidences don't come any more interesting than this".

    A cynic can now say the death count has not changed but what last year would be counted as flu is now counted as covid.
    In reality, that data item proves almost nothing.

    What it does not prove is the justification for passers-by to shout at an isolated unmasked worker on a break.

    Fear.
    We see it in nature during a stampede, horses, cattle, and humans.
    Stampedes were used in pre-historic times by humans as a hunting strategy.

    Now, this fear all around us could be tailored and manufactured for a specific purpose, or it could be a by-product of other policies which helps the agenda so is encouraged.

    " really lost their damn minds"
    Exactly, that is what is intended.

    I talk to a few people who when the name Trump comes up, usually introduced by them, show symptoms of real basic primitive drives- shut-down of peripheral vision, looking round for attackers but not actually using eyes, fight or flight, ready to scream or shout the the usual invective stream.
