Of course we already knew that, but in case you are still in doubt, here's a link that contains a PDF download of the study.

arxiv.org...

From the study's abstract:


This
paper investigates how pandemic visualizations circulated on social
media, and shows that people who mistrust the scientific establishment often deploy the same rhetorics of data-driven decisionmaking used by experts, but to advocate for radical policy changes.
Using a quantitative analysis of how visualizations spread on Twitter and an ethnographic approach to analyzing conversations about
COVID data on Facebook, we document an epistemological gap
that leads pro- and anti-mask groups to draw drastically different
inferences from similar data. Ultimately, we argue that the deployment of COVID data visualizations reflect a deeper sociopolitical
rift regarding the place of science in public life.

The Church of the Fauci Mask will be here soon to mock you and label you a heretic for defying the sacred mask.

All take a knee to the masked-one.

Amen.

To sum it up then, this basically affirms that anti-maskers are more Vulcan in this regard and want to examine as much as possible before making a final determination, whereas pro-maskers will insta-hop on the bandwagon willy-nilly almost.

Did I get that right? I skimmed the PDF, but really don't have the time to thoroughly read it right now. That's just what the overall point to the study felt like to me.

We shall pray to the blessed Covid according to the high priest Fauci. For he brought forth the word of the wearing of the mask lest you most assuredly shall snuff it. Being without your sacred mask, you are naughty in the many eyes of the followers of the Covid.

Mask be on you.



Most stores I go to have removed their mask required signs.

In Georgia. Funny thing is the Dollar Tree was one of the last hold outs for masks.

Because

A. anti-maskers realize masks aren't being used properly

B. Masks may have contributed the spread, due to ignorance

I know it used to be called common sense, but really I think the phrase should be changed to rare sense, because it's not common at all anymore.

Translation: The promaskers are idiots who can't bothered actually read scientific data and just blindly do what they're told while anti-maskers are actually capable of reading, understanding and coming to conclusions.about scientific data.

Funny that....

Sense has little to do with anything common.

People are peopley. We asked for a proper plague to wipe out the worthless wankers, but instead we got a poor excuse for a bio weapon, with full media and government compliance.

I saw a thread here with death rates for the last five years for multiple countries.
The death rates followed the trend every year, including 2020.

Point being, if the deaths were made up, then the masks were made up. If the masks were made up, the vaccine is made up.
The virus exists, sure- but the common cold exists too and every year it killed a bunch of old folks. The flu has killed plenty every year for hundreds of years.... and now suddenly not so much?

I call whore's #.


Back on topic, yes. People bowing down to the idiotic idea that any mask is better than no mask are the same people who would put windshield washer fluid in their brake fluid reservoir because any fluid is better than no fluid.

Too many people are too dumb to live their own lives, and society let them get away with it for so long that its now acceptable to be too dumb to think at all.
Embarrassing.

I call it basic sense these days. Its the sense you're supposed to be born with inherently which used to be common...but is increasingly less so these days.

Compliance happened.

Now these shmucks know they can propogate anything to achieve compliance.

We now know better, it's up to people themselves to say no.

Or they read it, but they can't extrapolate what the numbers mean. They just see big numbers and think it's scary. 600,000 dead people is a large number ... but not when compared to the total population of the US, for example.

MIT will back me up, when it finally catches up to my scientific rigor.

Pardon me, but what is an..."Anti-mask wearer"??????

Are they wearing a mask but it's invisible? Or, are they invisible and all you see is the mask?

I'm really confused here.

The mask mandates and enforcement were nothing but a push from elected officials to show that they were in charge and you do as you are told, even if you voted for the elected official and his power extended as far as the voters allowed to extend.

In many states this self proclaim dictators wanna be got away stepping on the rights of citizens that elected them, while in other states people were able to stop all this crap on its tracks.

Now is obvious that no all states are equal and neither they treat and respect citizens rights and freedoms.

Choose your state very carefully next time you are looking for a new place to live and raise a family my friends.


Saucy fascist got a temporary high on his powers as enforced for the CDC and boy he showed us how much he will love to be a dictator.

I will back that to a point and just tweak it to - All humans are stupid except me and possibly now you.
