When I posted about the coronavirus scam last night, I referred to the now-ubiquitous medical face mask as a Corona Hijab. I’d like to elaborate on that concept just a little bit this afternoon.
When a Muslim woman wears hijab, it serves two functions. First of all, it covers up a female’s sexually attractive characteristics, which keeps the wearer from arousing the lust of men with whom she is not permitted to copulate. When a man’s lust is aroused, he is not responsible for his actions. The woman (or girl) is responsible for the consequences if she allows herself to become “uncovered meat”.
The second function of the veil is to signal a woman’s submission. By wearing it she shows her obedience to Allah, who commanded that women be covered. Since Allah also deemed that a woman must obey her father or her husband, the hijab is also a signal that she has submitted to one or both of them.
Similarly, the public wearing of a medical face mask is a sign of submission. Science has deemed that face masks must be worn to prevent
the djinn the COVID-19 virus from invading one’s body. By wearing it, a dutiful citizen signals his submission to Science.
Since Science has also delegated authority to divers worldly powers — national and local governments, the CDC, the WHO, state health departments, etc. — the mask-wearer is also publicly declaring his submission to state authority.
Just as Allah’s commands may not be altered or overruled, so the commands of Science must not be questioned. Science has determined that the mask is necessary; therefore it must be worn, and no ordinary mortal may presume to argue with that decree.
Now, I’ve read a lot of data about face masks, both pro and con. On balance, it seems they are largely pointless. As I understand it, the virus particles are so small that they pass through the filter of even an N95 mask, which provides less than 10% protection against the ChiCom flu.
On the other hand, they prevent droplets of saliva or sputum from escaping when the wearer coughs, sneezes, talks, or sings, which means that anyone who is already infected is less likely to spread the disease via his mouth or nostrils. So they’re not entirely useless.
We’re not allowed to have such discussions in public, however, for fear of arousing the wrath of Science, as explained by His prophets, such as Anthony Fauci (pbuh) and Neil Ferguson (no pbuh for him, however, since he has recently sinned).
A faithful believer in Science does not question the face mask; he simply wears it, thereby displaying his submission to Science. When an obedient citizen ventures out onto the street, he makes sure to wear his mask. That tells
the muttawa the police that he is a compliant servant of Science, so that they leave him unmolested.
When a citizen fails to wear a mask, he is responsible for the consequent actions of the police, whatever those might be. It is well-understood that police are unable to control their reactions when they witness any behaviors that contravene the will of Science.
I wore a face mask a few times during the height of the Coronacrisis, just to be polite. Especially when I was in Whole Foods, which is a den of submissive sanctimony at the best of times. I hate the damned mask — it makes my glasses steam up, no matter how I fiddle with it.
But then I read about all this mindless submission to Science, and thought about the underlying significance of mask-wearing, as described above. So I decided not to wear one anymore. If it is ever made mandatory — which Governor Coonman (pbuh), in his infinite wisdom, has not yet decreed — I’ll bottle up my ire and put one on when engaged in necessary activities, such as grocery shopping or visiting the ABC store. I keep one in the glove compartment, just in case.
But I will simply forgo optional activities under those circumstances. At some point a man has to take a stand on principle. My advanced age denies me most opportunities for principled behavior, but I can manage that one.
I will NOT submit.
