Bill Gates, the guy who turned in his Microsoft credentials for a cereal box medical degree that allows him to tell you and me to stay home due to a virus, now tells that you and me will have to stay home until, umm, let’s see, 2022. Or so.

Tyranny ‘til 2022 — learn it. Live it. Love it. Put it on a bumper sticker and drive it.

“When do you think life will fully return to what we thought of as normal back in January, no masks, no social distancing, no other protective measures necessary?” CNN host Jake Tapper asked Gates during a “State of the Union” segment.

And Gates replied, as Breitbart noted, “Certainly, by the summer we’ll be way closer to normal than we are now, but even through early 2022, unless we help other countries get rid of this disease and we get high vaccinations rates in our country, the risk of reintroduction will be there and, of course, the global economy will be slowed down, which hurts America economically in a pretty dramatic way. So we will have, starting in the summer, about nine months where a few things like big public gatherings will still be restricted.”

Heads up, restaurants.

Heads up, Easter worshippers — as the Barack Obamas of the world put it. From Gates’ lips to Democrat government’s whips.

We’re headed for more lockdowns, continued restrictions, ongoing executive orders against get-togethers. And it was just a few months ago when Easter was rolling around and the medical bureaucrats in control of America’s economic, social, educational and business sectors were promising that if we just stayed out of church for that weekend, all would be well in the world. So we did. And it’s still not well in the world. And the ongoing excuse of these tyrannical medical bureaucrats is that it’s not well in the world because, well, we didn’t do as well as we should have done.

As Gates wrapped: “But we can see now that somewhere between 12 to 18 months, we have a chance, if we manage it well, to get back to normal.”

There you have it, the evil genius of these coronavirus lockdown strategies.

If we do what the government says, we can be free. But as we grow closer to the freeing date, we learn we can’t be free after all because some of us, apparently, sadly, pitifully, didn’t do what we were supposed to do so we have to stay un-free for a bit longer.

America, wake up and smell the iron on the chains: The left is never going to allow a return to pre-coronavirus normal. Never.

Never, ever, ever.

America will never, ever, ever see the freedoms of pre-COVID-19 unless Americans band together and demand government step back, get out of the way and return the freedoms of pre-COVID-19.

Consider this World War III, if you will.

But the coronavirus is not the real enemy. Who is? What is? The collectivists and globalists. And their faces are many.
