Thank You for the thread!
Buncha dang Trump supporters. Look, no/few masks is the giveaway.

But it can’t be. All the pro-maskers claim everyone else is all better because OrangeManBad. Oh, Japan is having a second hit? And Hong Kong? And Germany? And did I hear northern England? How can that be? They don’t have an Orange Man.
We need to do this. Seriously.

Its Germany, so our media will find a way to make them Nazis.

Some places didnt get as much exposure, now the virus is getting there. Hopefully its mostly younger infectees and/or a milder strain.
Ride a bicycle and catch a lot of fish.
This was an earlier feed.....if anyone speaks German.
Wonderful! We need to join them from this side!
FIRE FAUXI !
It used to be the German always obeyed orders now it’s the great freedom-loving Americans that are obeying orders
Freiheit uber allies!
I speak German but it’s hard to hear exactly what they’re saying except one word is loud and clear....FREIHEIT !!!
AN INTERESTING CLIP.. especially the older woman probably in her early 80s angrily talking to the policeman.
