from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Going forward into 2021, it will be interesting to see just how the left plans to deal with the pseudo-pandemic.
The way I see it, they have two options. Well, I guess actually three, but the third is a non-starter, which is coming clean and admitting to everyone that they lied about the severity of COVID for most of the population and they purposely inflated both the contraction and death rates to gain an election advantage.
The other two are 1: Now that a Democrat is president (assuming this ends up being the case), COVID will magically begin to lose its planet-killing status, and, thanks to our new president, things will begin to normalize a bit.
Or 2: Lockdowns will increase, despite vaccinations. Masks will become mandatory inside and out. All other controls will remain or be ramped up. But there will be one change: The press will all of a sudden begin to put a happy face on the whole mess. We will start to see the brighter side of the pandemic.
I’m really torn on choosing one or the other.
On the one hand the Dems will be hard-pressed to relinquish their newfound authority over us. But on the other, it seems the left would want to show the new administration as riding in on a rainbow colored horse to save the day. (I was going to say, “riding in on a white horse,” but that would be racist.)
So maybe they’ll opt for some sort of hybrid. Oh, they’ll maintain and probably ramp up the mask mandates, distancing, etc. But they also may give a subtle signal to the left’s “expert class” to begin ratcheting down the number of positive results and stop skewing the death rates.
