Before I go off on my tear, please understand that this is not Ageist as I am an old man myself, but it definitely will be anti-idiot, and anti-liberal.
Last night I had to make an impromptu grocery run as I was missing 3 things from my house that would improve my dinner. Shredded Cheese, Cilantro, and Liverwurst. The liverwurst is for my dogs, who have figured out that Pill pockets mean medicine they dont want to take. My older Shepherd has allergies, to what I do not know. That being said, it was a tactical run as I had come off the range from teaching firearms instruction and was dressed accordingly.
Those who know me, know that I do not wear a mask. I choose not to wear a mask as I have a pre-existing condition. Those who know me, know that the condition is a behavioral disorder more so than an actual health concern. That said, heres what happened when I went into HyVee.
As I walk through the door I notice a security guard sitting in a chair and as I come walking in, he lifts up his hand in the HALT position and tells me STOP! YOU NEED A MASK TO COME IN HERE.
I mention to him politely that I have a pre-existing condition. His response was Bullshit, it doesnt fucking matter, you are going to wear a mask. Loud enough to not only get my attention but everyone around me. He also went to put his hands on me and I moved back and I told him that I was still exempt and if he felt that strongly that he should go ahead and call the police. I walked away, and got the Cilantro, then headed for the dairy and meat area to pick up my other two items. As I was walking towards the liverwurst I hear the code for Loss Prevention and I realize that I was now In Trouble I got my stuff, and walked down the aisle to be confronted by the rather larger guy who I have seen enough times to know who he was. He asked me how I was, and I said Amazing, how are you doing? Then continued on my way to the register. I used the self checkout and was done. Tactical run done in 5 minutes. I am walking to the door and see this security prick staring daggers at me as if I had somehow been shown whos boss.
Nope. I returned his look with a raised middle finger and left. I was walking to my car when I hear this clod screaming to get my attention. HEY... HEYYYY... ASSHOLE... HEYYY MOTHERFUCKER... I turn around and he is 20 feet from me YOU GOT SOMETHING YOU WANNA SAY TO ME?
Already did, thanks for playing, go back to your store. He proceeds to close the distance, he has pepper spray on his hip and his hand on it. You wanna start something, You gotta wear a fucking mask he says, He keeps moving forward and I ask him if he is really wanting to square off with me. I tell him Get back, and go back to your fucking store, I am not going to tell you twice.
Meanwhile some cuck to my right somewhere is yelling SIR!!! SIR!!! Like they are somehow a part of things. I ignore them and when the security guy goes back, I walk to my car and leave. I am a permit to carry holder and instructor, and should have simply known better than to even acknowledge his presence. It was when he started the name calling that I told him to knock it off, and go back to his post.
I was open carrying a firearm, and he was carrying what looked to be either mace or a small taser. Had he decided to dose me, or attack me, I would have been within my rights to defend myself. I am not a small man, and honestly had things gone physical a gun would not have been needed as this guy was about 160, in his 60s and about an inch shorter than I am.
The problem I had with being told to put a mask on, is that there were two African American people in the produce area that I could see who were not wearing a mask and a special needs child with his mask hanging off his ear that walked right in front of me as I entered the building. I was being singled out likely because I was white, Middle aged, and open carrying a firearm. This cuck felt emboldened because he had a badge, and most people who are from Minnesota usually cuck up and shut up in order to avoid a conflict. In other words, he needed an ego boost and took a power trip on someone who wasnt having it.
I am not from Minnesota, and clearly do not belong here. I called the manager of that HyVee as I was driving home, and explained to him what transpired, as the security guy had already told him his side of the story. What the manager did not know was that the security guard had overstepped his authority and went to put his hands on me. I did not mention my bird flipping, but did in the email I sent to both the store and the corporate office.
A one fingered salute is not grounds for aggression, especially when the person has drawn unwanted attention to you in a store for absolutely no reason other than to make himself feel better.
The problem that I see, is that this man is likely a liberal who voted for Biden and now feels empowered to take a stand against what he sees as any Pro-Trump Ally. While I voted for Trump, it was a vote against Biden because at least with Trump I wasnt voting for a communist agent working for China.
I have noticed that since the election has been going on, more and more of these betas who think they have more authority than they do are going out of their way to assert their will on people like me. Which of course isnt going to happen. I have been the ONLY person walking around without a mask that I have seen lately. In the last month I feel like I am the last man on earth, like I am in some horrible simulation where the AI have taken over and replaced all the other players with mindless drones. A better analogy is being Charlton Heston in Omega Man, with all the zombies working to either devour or infect the last of the living with their vampirism. A great metaphor for beta culture and communism to be honest.
That being said, I think when this covid 19 thing is over, or when people finally have had enough, people like me wont have a place as we understand that the reason for all of this has nothing to do with our health, but to control every American by making fear a virtue.
