Joe Biden’s administration has been a treasure trove of gaffes and blunders.
It’s hard to tell between what’s real and what’s satire anymore.
Like FEMA’s latest updates on what to do in case of a nuclear explosion.
Older Americans will remember the federal government’s comical “duck and cover” videos that came out in the 1950s and were played for school children everywhere up through the 1970s.
These videos advised people to duck and cover during tornadoes, hurricanes, or in the case of a nuclear attack.
What the government didn’t tell us at the time was they wanted everyone to duck and cover so they’d know where the bodies would be.
While that might make some practical sense, it isn’t very comforting to an already scared populace.
Well, the Biden administration has decided to make “duck and cover” seem sane and rational compared to the new recommended safety measures.
FEMA recently updated their information on its website on what to do in case of a nuclear explosion and we had to check multiple times to make sure it wasn’t a joke or FEMA hadn’t been hacked.
Sadly, it’s all too real.
In short, FEMA wants everyone to know that, should we experience a nuclear attack, it’s important we continue observing all COVID protocols.
From FEMA’s website updated last week:
“A nuclear explosion may occur with or without a few minutes warning. Fallout is most dangerous in the first few hours after the detonation when it is giving off the highest levels of radiation. It takes time for fallout to arrive back to ground level, often more than 15 minutes for areas outside of the immediate blast damage zones.”
Included in FEMA’s recommendations: “Try to maintain a distance of at least six feet between yourself and people who are not part of your household,” and, “If possible, wear a mask if you’re sheltering with people who are not part of your household.”
But that’s not all.
FEMA goes on to say:
“If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 and let the operator know if you have, or think you might have, Covid-19. If you can, put on a mask before help arrives.”
“Many people already feel fear and anxiety about the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The threat of nuclear explosion can add additional stress.”
Yes, in the midst of a nuclear explosion, radiation exposure, and fallout, Americans will still be concerned about catching COVID.
It’s no wonder Putin felt emboldened to attack Ukraine and why Communist China feels they could likely take Taiwan.
Even with the horrors of a possible nuclear war right around the corner, we’re over here STILL talking about a virus that’s more than 99% survivable!
