Holy Masks, Batman!

“…on the marquee of our local movie theater, which is still shut down thanks to Fuhrer Witless” Mike in Michigan, “spotted” this nonsense:

I WEAR THE MASK 

TO PROTECT THE ONES I LOVE

                                 BATMAN

Mike muses, 

Besides the absurdity (or perhaps appropriateness) of quoting a comic-book superhero to justify mask tyranny, note some other points:

  1. Batman voluntarily dons the mask himself. He doesn’t force other people to wear one.
  2. Batman’s mask does not cover his nostrils and mouth.

But who expects logic when it comes to mask propaganda?

No one. All that’s required is reflexive, unthinking compliance.
