Curiously, TP USA, the conservative group shared a meme mocking face masks seven hours after Kirk tweeted about the death of Montgomery. The since-deleted meme includes a photo of a blissful Nicolas Cage with the text, “Me not wearing a mask while a leftist screams at me from their car across the parking lot at Whole Foods.” The organization captioned the meme with “LOL!” and a #BigGovSucks hashtag.
One of TP USA’s primary methods of communication, at least on Twitter, includes sharing memes that disparage any number of what it perceives to be ridiculous liberal causes. Those causes include wearing face masks (an encroachment on freedom), protesting police brutality (domestic terrorism), political correctness (a leftist tool to silence smart conservatives), and socialism (socialism is just bad, I dunno).
The organization has continued sharing a steady stream of memes and videos defending its points of view since deleting its mask tweet.
A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets. There are fears the virus can also be spread simply through speaking. One recent study showed that we spray thousands of droplets invisible to the naked eye into the air just by uttering the words “stay healthy”. “Face masks could help to reduce transmission in the community particularly if used in public transport and crowded areas,” says Ben Cowling, head of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Hong Kong, BBC reported.
