Wokes Waking Up? NY Times Insists Those ‘Paralyzed’ By COVID Fears Need To Get Busy Living

Right there in the printed edition of the Sunday New York Times was the headline: “COVID isn’t going anywhere. It’s time we started acting like it.” The newspaper that stoked fears for nearly two years has started to crack, and for what seems to be the first time, the editorial staff is seeming to indicate it’s time for Americans to get on with living their lives if they haven’t already.

“Even as we remain vigilant against the coronavirus, we need not remain in a state of paralyzing hypervigilance,” the editorial board writes at the end of its Sunday opinion piece.

“Returning to the sound basics of public health, continuing the progress of medical innovation and ratcheting back the societal anxiety around the pandemic could make us all a lot healthier,” the newspaper concludes.

Interestingly, the Times changed its online headline for its “start acting like it” editorial to “We Can Live Better Lives While Being Smart About Covid.”

Why? You can come up with your own conclusions.

NY Times COVID editorial paralyzed

Back in October, investigative journalist Kathernine Eban wrote in a Times’ opinion column that “Rather than debate how to end the pandemic, we need to debate how to live with it.” Now it appears the Times’ editorial board has come to the same conclusion.

While most of you have already gotten busy living, it’s undeniable that there are numerous millions of people out there who are “paralyzed” and can’t bring themselves to start living again or let their kids start living again. There are the parents who are still forcing their children to wear masks outside in the fresh air. There are the parents who think their kids are going to die if they go into a restaurant where one person didn’t show a vaccine passport.

The Times editorial board — nearly a full two years into this — seems to finally understand that parents can’t keep paralyzing themselves and their children.

However, the Times still advocates for masking — under certain circumstances. “Masking in schools is uniquely challenging. No one wants to force young children to wear masks for several hours a day indefinitely, but it would also be foolish to abandon the practice completely,” the board writes.

When would students need to be masked, according to the paper?

Surges or when new variants are detected.

While that sure makes it sound like the board isn’t fully ready to let go of its card-waving coronabro status, the board also writes that it’s time to “Do away with COVID theater,” which New York Governor Kathy Hochul isn’t ready to do. Monday, her new indoor masking mandate went into effect until January 15, 2022.

Kathy’s still paralyzed.

Speaking of COVID theater and being paralyzed by fear, what happened to Dr. Fauci and that whole two-mask thing? “It likely does,” Fauci Said last January when asked if double masking offers more protection than just one.

  1. Ah yes, Governor Hochul. I got a first-hand look at the new mandate when I went to the gym this morning and told I have to wear my mask to work out. Please explain how this makes sense – if a business requires staff and customers to be vaxxed then the mask mandate doesn’t apply. However, if a business doesn’t require staff and customers to be vaxxed, then everyone needs to wear a mask regardless of vax status. It’s nonsensical. These tyrants need to be voted out.
