Judge Napolitano is on the wrong side of history

I see Judge Napolitano, otherwise known as the Grim Reaper, has struck again with his anti-mask theory. He started his campaign in the spring, saying the COVID virus was not a big concern; that more people die from cancer than COVID. Well, Judge, you can’t say that now, can you. But still the Judge is not happy. Not even now, with almost 400,000 deaths, is the Judge happy. What will it take to make you stop this campaign? 1/2 million dead? 1 million? Or maybe, if it’s one of your family?

Mr. Napolitano proclaims it’s your constitutional right to not have to wear masks. But then, hypocritically, goes on later to say, your rights end when they interfere with my rights. Well, Judge, the Constitution says, as you pointed out, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The main word there was life. See, my right to live beats out your right to not wear a mask. Also, where does it say you don’t have to wear a mask in the Constitution? Right next to where it says I don’t have to wear pants?

Judge, you say the chance of getting COVID is 35 times greater at home than in a restaurant. I wonder why? Could it be you spend 90 percent more time at home than at a restaurant? That you must be at home, but you do not have to be at a restaurant.

If we can save just one person from getting the virus in a restaurant, then we stop 100 people from getting the virus. How many lives would we save?

Sorry, you’re on the wrong side of history on this one.

Mr. Napolitano, there have been many times where, in an emergency, rights have been curtailed. Just look at home life during WW II; driving at night, windows blacked out, etc.
