What happened to “save grandma”?

First, we were told not to wear masks. Next, we were told to stay home. And then, an exception was made for anti-police protestors. With apologies to my colleague and friend Alex Tabarrok, is the Wuhan coronavirus an existential threat to humanity, or is the so-called “lockdown” the biggest government farce since the bogus pretext for the invasion of Iraq? Either way, the lamestream media, our elected officials, and our so-called public health “experts” have lost whatever little credibility they had in the first place. More below the fold:

Exhibit A: Memorial Day Pool Party in the Ozarks on 25 May (“bad” because of the coronavirus):

Exhibit B: Anti-Police Protest in Philadelphia a few days later (“good” in spite of the coronavirus):

File under: Lockdowns for me but not for thee.

  1. A lack of consistency. I have either grown cynical or have noticed this reoccurring behavioral pattern from purported experts who work for government agencies. I have come to expect it as an unfortunate state of reality.

    You have a president and a party who have been actively working to undermine government for over 30 years. This is the fruit of their labor, and now you’re complaining? Hey, while we’re at it, let’s run up some big deficits so that when the Dems are in power, we can complain about how we can’t afford to fix anything!
