The idea that the media inflated or exaggerated the pandemic fears to justify a lockdown for social engineering purposes may seem monstrous to those whose modest jobs and small businesses were lost, but like a spouse walking in on flagrante delict what else are they to think? “Honey, I can explain why we locked down the jobs and churches and visits to nursing homes but not antifa. It’s not what it looks like!”
(Richard Fernandez – PJ Media) Megan McArdle fears that public health officials’ endorsement of mass demonstrations to support Black Lives Matter has destroyed their credibility to order lockdowns in the future.
Academia/media will have lost it, because let’s be honest: we treated these protests very differently from church services or anti-lockdown protests, something a bunch of public health experts made explicit. We already, clearly, had a problem communicating our concerns to more conservative people, especially in redder states. That problem just became insuperable. They will trust nothing we say because apparently, we only think the danger is great enough to override their priorities.
McCardle was referring to a letter signed by 1,200 of the country’s most renowned public health “experts” calling outdoor mass gatherings “vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people.”
