MASS HYSTERIA: Deranged Mob Chases Person Out of Grocery Store in New York for Not Wearing a Mask
A shocking video has showed a deranged mob of fear-driven New Yorkers harassing a woman in a Staten Island grocery store and driving her from the establishment for not wearing a mask.

“From what I can see in the video it seems there aren’t employees of the store involved in removing the shopper,” said McAuley Holmes, who posted the viral video on Twitter, to Heavy.
“Obviously private businesses have the right to refuse service to non-mask wearers, but a group of shoppers is different. Masks are important in stopping the spread and wearing one is a sign of respect to others,” he added. “It’s understandable that people would be so serious about community enforcement in a place like Staten Island that has been hit so hard by COVID.”
While the zombie-like public begs for their fellow man to wear masks in a showing of collective servitude and submission, there is significant debate over whether or not wearing the masks even helps prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Some experts have even warned that wearing a mask can actually be detrimental to healthy people:
While wearing masks could help reduce the spread of coronavirus, there is some risk that fit and healthy people could find themselves at greater risk of infection by wearing them, a medic has warned.
Professor Martin Marshall, chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, said it would make sense to advise the public to wear masks on a voluntary basis to reduce the chance of the spread of coronavirus.
But he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that there is a risk that fit and healthy people could be increasing their chance of infection by wearing a mask that encourages them to touch their face.
His comments come as the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) was expected to discuss the usage of masks in a meeting on Thursday.
“There’s no research evidence to support wearing masks if you are basically fit and well,” said Prof Marshall.
“Indeed if people wear masks there’s a risk they play around with it, they play with their eyes more and maybe you’re even at a higher risk of picking up an infection.
“However it is common sense that if they are coughing and spluttering then it makes complete sense to wear masks in order to protect other people.”
He went on: “I think the guidance that we’re expecting to hear is that the wearing of face masks is a voluntary activity not mandated and it certainly makes a lot of sense to focus limited resources that we have at the moment on those who have greatest need and that’s the health professionals.
“This sophisticated kit is likely to be more rigorous, more useful, but actually it’s perfectly reasonable to wear a bandanna around your mouth or whatever, that will work, it won’t be quite as good but it will be good enough.”
Much of the American public has surrendered their ability to think rationally due to the mass hysteria, and the sorry mob display in Staten Island is a terrifying example of this phenomenon.
