Americans Have Forgotten How To Be Human

Ye who demand others wear masks to protect the health of the vulnerable, be ashamed of yourselves:

Greeley nursing home residents protest pandemic lockdown: “I’d rather die of COVID than loneliness”

GREELEY — Waving signs that read such things as “I’d rather die of COVID than loneliness,” and “We are prisoners in our home,” residents of one nursing facility staged their own anti-lockdown protest along one of the busiest streets in Greeley, directly across the street from the city’s largest and longest operating hospital.

“Freedom, freedom, freedom,” one lady chanted while waving a sign that read “we want our families back.”

The protest against the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Gov. Jared Polis’ mandates that do not allow nursing home residents to see their loved ones, was thought up, organized and carried out by the residents, with oversight from their nurses and other staff members, said the Assistant Administrator of Fairacres Manor Ben Gonzales.

Gonzales said the facility has a resident council that meets monthly to discuss things that are on residents’ minds. They usually discuss caregivers, things they’d like to do, or offer suggestions, among other things.

However, recently, they brought up the idea of protesting the lockdown as they enter their eighth month of no hugs, no smiles, no kisses from their loved ones.

“We are here to support our residents,” Gonzales said. “If they want to get their voices heard, they have rights just like we should have rights as well. We wanted to make sure that they were able to express those.”

Gonzales said the staff made sure the residents were all placed six feet apart on the grass across from the entrance to North Colorado Medical Center, along a busy 16th Street in the center of town. They were wearing masks and each one had their own member of the staff nearby. The nurses and other personnel were also in all the appropriate personal protection equipment required for their jobs.

I found the problem. The government told them to stop treating the elderly like human beings so guess what happened: they stopped treating the elderly like human beings.

The least they could have done is created an “opt-out” group of elderly who’d rather have family than sterile isolation.

Hospital administration who happened to hear of the protest, applauded their efforts and took time to go across the street as well.

One woman, who was not from Greeley, but happened to be at the hospital during the protest yelled across the street “tell them to let you out of jail.”

She identified herself only as a nursing home administrator in another community. She said has seen more deaths due to depression among her residents since the pandemic than she has COVID itself, blaming mandates and restrictions more than the virus.

The legislative bureaucrats can’t help themselves. They’re soulless abominations who hate God & fear reality. But for the staff of those nursing homes to look people in the eye and deny them the most basic of human kindnesses because soulless abominations demanded it, is inexcusable.

“The isolation is what kills these people,” she said. “It’s just incredibly sad that they can’t live out the last part of their lives with their family surrounding them.”

Gonzales agreed. He said although the homes are now preparing for indoor visits as the weather gets colder, residents will still not be able to touch or hug their loved ones.

“But that’s what they need,” Gonzales said. “They need that physical contact, to hug their grandchildren.”

Gonzales agreed some of the signs they created were tough to read.

So, help them with that, Gonzales. Helping them is your job… well, apparently not.

“We as staff members get to go see our family and our loved ones,” Gonzales said. “So, it’s tough when they don’t get to do that.”

You hypocrite, Gonzales. You look them in the eye every day to deny them what you enjoy and know they need.

“We are held to standards by the government and the state health department. But it’s very understandable. I feel for them. I can’t imagine what they are going through. So, it’s nice to be able to support them in this way. We are here to come together and to support each other.”

So, YOU DISOBEY THE GOVERNMENT. We aren’t talking about politics. We’re talking about letting Grandpa hug his grandkids.

Truth: COVID-19 lockdowns are 0% medicine and 100% population control.

Weld County Commissioner Scott James stopped by the facility to lend his support for the protest as well. He said his heart breaks for all the residents of Fairacres and every other facility like it in Colorado.

“They are members of the greatest generation,” James said. “The very generation who fought to overturn tyranny and protect our freedoms. Now these members of that generation have had their freedom taken away via a tyrannous act by unelected bureaucrats. The governor and the CDPHE should immediately work with these facilities to give them a way by which they may hug their loved ones.”

But not the Weld County Commissioners? James, your governor wants you dead and your society “fundamentally transformed” into totalitarian Communism. And the bureaucrats who created this lockdown, well, they knew what they were doing when they wrote these tyrannies in the first place.

Stop. Obeying. The soulless abominations, James. You’re in a position to actually do something about that.

  1. Americans stopped being human decades ago (I would say that the Roe v. Wade decision marks a good historical starting point for when it became an official national practice). It’s only now starting to reach critical mass. The “good” news (“good” if you believe in divine justice) is that having been given over to their depraved and base inhuman impulses, Americans are going to visit their inhumanity upon one another in ways unimaginable even today. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.

  2. Greatest command: Love God; heart, soul and mind.
    Second greatest command: Love others as you love yourself.

    “All the laws and the prophets hang on these two commandments”. (Matthew 22:34-40)
    So, is refusing to give any physical affection, for half a year, to your relatives the way to show love, either to God or to others? Even if you think Covid19 is a death-risk for them, could you not find a way to reduce the risk if you thought about it? Or just ask them whether they want to have the affection+risk, or go without both, allowing each elderly person the dignity of exercising authority over their own life?

    That is a big part of the problem. Our governments have no respect for what should be our authority. The government has no authority to meddle in my family. Yes, they have the power to shoot me or steal my children. But power does not equal authority. The only authority governments have comes from God (Romans 13:1-8). And God’s word shows that the father is the authority figure in the home, NOT the government.
    It started with allowing the government to order fathers to send their children to school, “for the good of the children”.
    Then with allowing government agents to kidnap children from fathers who were accused of abusing their children, “for the good of the children”.
    Then with allowing government agents to kidnap children from fathers who were abandoned by their wives, “for the good of the children”.
    Then with allowing government agents to order medical treatments for children, over the objections of the father, “for the good of the children”. (Such as blood transfusions for Jehovah’s Witness families.)
    Now with allowing the government to order the deprivation of love through physical affection to our family and friends, “for the good of the people”.

    None of the above abuses would be possible if there were no government-funded gangs (also known as policemen).

    Returning to a father-authority model, as shown in the Scriptures, would avoid many of these problems. No, not all fathers are ideal. But a father-authority model is greatly better than a government-authority model.

    Indeed, the lack of fatherhood may be exactly why the government is able to get away with so much even when the people generally disagree with its decisions. “Daddy Knows Best.”
