Also right-wingers: "How dare Costco make me wear a mask! That's tyranny!"




Right-wingers: "Companies should be able to have whatever policies they want, w/o government interference. It's PRIVATE enterprise!"

Also right-wingers: "How dare Costco make me wear a mask! That's tyranny!"

Translation: We just meant companies should be able to fire the gays


Exactly spot on...
The tyranny only exists when a company seeks to exert control over THEIR behaviours, not when they want to deny certain communities opportunities, or when they try and deny coverage for birth control etc et al. They are such self entitled privileged whiny wankers. They are exhausting.

Don't want to wear a face mask. Then...

2. Being Right Wing in the US is all about resentment of others

even their economic positions isn't really based on economic policy itself but about resentment that blacks, gays, mexicans etc not get something.

Forget the mask, what's the obsession with shoes and shirts?

7. Also too stupid to know what is the definition of "tyranny."

It requires a government or ruler of some sort, neither of which Costco falls under. What Costco is doing is no different than someone asking you to take off your dirty shoes when you enter their home.

9. Authoritarian types. "It's my way or the highway" when they're in charge. It's "you're not the

boss of me" like a snotty little kid, when someone is telling them what to do. I've seen it over and over.

10. Irony: Wing-Nuts Fussing About Dress Requirements

I’m old enough to remember contemporary right-wingers screaming about slovenly hippies and claiming that shop-keepers has every right to keep those dirty hippies out of their stores and cafes.

My, how rhetoric and attitudes have changed in this post-Walmart world.

20. How can we forget that?

I suspect that we’re probably within a decade or two of each other age wise. If a period nut -job had seen a contemporary (ie 2020AD) actress or pin-up girl in a Stars and Stripes blouse or swimsuit, the explosion would have rivaled some of the big nuclear tests in Nevada back in the 1950’s.

reichwingers these days, as they tend to live in other areas of fundieville.keeps my blood pressure down.

13. I joined Costco last night. I wonder how their protests went when the "No Shirts, No Shoes, No

Service" rule was instituted in restaurants? Smug, selfish, entitled assholes.

14. Then the Rignt-Wingers can go to Walmart.....

Where wearing a mask and Social Distancing is not required, unless I am missing something here.

Was in one a few weeks ago to buy thread. None to be had. People were not wearing masks, but I was, including gloves.

17. At a local Wally World here, a friend who shops there told me all the employees were masked, as

we're almost all the customers. Observing social distancing. Have no idea about the other wally worlds in town.
