It’s been clear for over a year now that mask mandates intended to reduce the transmission of COVID have been worthless. It’s been clear, that is, to anyone with any sense who wants to understand the truth. For example, a report published on the official website of the State of North Dakota on 2/3/21 explained, “No matter how strictly mask laws are enforced nor the level of mask compliance the population follows, cases all fall and rise around the same time.” What’s more important, we’ve seen evidence to support the data used in arriving at that conclusion.
When we go to a supermarket and see the grocery store clerk stacking tomatoes with his mask down around his chin, we know the only reason he’s even wearing it is that his boss told him that he must; and we also know that mask/chinstrap is accomplishing nothing. When we go to a restaurant requiring masks be warned, all of us still remove the mask to eat, of course, and the fact that we wore the mask when we walked in is irrelevant. And when we see politicians like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti remove his mask for a photo op, even though he claimed he held his breath during that time (seriously), we know that his mask-wearing is just for show and nothing else.
We make these conclusions because we have common sense. The enemy we’re fighting, along with leftwing propaganda, is a virus, and that virus doesn’t care if you’re uncomfortable putting out tomatoes, or if you’re eating your lunch, or if you’re getting your picture taken with Magic Johnson. It’s a virus, and a virus’ goal is to infect us. It’s that simple… unless you’re the head of the nation’s teachers’ unions, like Randi Weingarten.
In an interview on MSNBC yesterday, Weingarten offered the following assessment, “I think we have to at least be talking about the offramps for masks. And we asked for that conversation that’s based upon science instead of politics back in November before Omicron.” Actually, Randi, the rest of us have been talking about that offramp since 2020, and in many cases have already gotten off your idiotic mask mandate highway.
Randi Weingarten doesn’t care about science, she’s a liar, and she knows full well that these mask mandates are all about politics: politics and power. Ms. Weingarten will do everything in her power to advocate for her constituents, AKA America’s teachers, with no regard for the students.
Teachers have had over a year now to receive the left’s sacred COVID vaccine, the one that’s supposed to protect them. We have known from the earliest stages of the pandemic that children are exponentially less likely to become seriously ill from the disease. So, why is Randi Weingarten so opposed to eliminating mask mandates? For political purposes and as a show of force; that’s it.
