4. People who object to the lockdown aren't just objecting to the lockdown.

They are carrying a whole lot of other right-wing baggage having nothing to do with quarantines and wearing masks in public. Have you ever wondered why we don't see PoC participating in these demonstrations? Why aren't they complaining about being out of work or having to wear masks? When restaurants shut down who loses their jobs? Waiters, waitresses, cooks, busboys and cleaners, that's who. Why are the protesters complaining that they can't get their nails done or eat at restaurants, while the people who do nails and work in restaurants - many of whom are PoC - are not also demonstrating? Just apart from the fact that a black man who showed up with an AR-15 would be promptly arrested if not shot, it's obvious that these protests are about a lot more than they claim to be, and none of it is good.
