“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” – Sir Walter Scott, 1808
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) came out with a new study revealing no statistically significant decrease in “daily case” or “death” rates from COVID-19 in areas where there are mask mandates. This comes after a similar CDC study that came out in October determined mask mandates do not appear to have slowed or stopped the spread of the coronavirus at all. That means, at all.
Yet the CDC continues to tell Americans they should wear a mask unless they’re in a specific situation where everyone is fully vaccinated and that’s only if the ever-shifting mind of Dr. Fauci doesn’t pull another 180.
Following the results of this study, the CDC says they will continue recommending mask mandates

For the Woke crowd who admire government tyranny so long as they feel it’s being used against “other people,” they don’t worry too much about things like forced mask mandates. But for Americans who believe in freedom and limited government, who are concerned about the never-ending encroachment of their individual rights and liberties with the government interfering with the lives of their families, they find mask mandates as incredibly abusive government policy that takes away people’s freedom and forces them to behave the way government demands while accomplishing nothing outside of government getting the people to conform to the tyranny. Many see it, including me, as the government creating and enforcing rules just to show that the government is in charge and that it can get people to do what they are told. It’s just un-American and it doesn’t sit well with people who enjoy freedom.
Remember that progressives are people who believe that they can create a utopian heaven on earth via policy mandates just so long as the smartest people are controlling everything. And they believe that they are much smarter than you the great unwashed. Just ask them. They will tell you.
The mask mandates are not really about controlling the spread of the virus or even about trusting the “science” but about the Woke mob believing that other Americans are taking COVID seriously enough to obey their rules. And you always obey.
What many Americans are coming to understand is that those in charge of government are not listening to the people who elected them to govern. How many polls do we have to conduct showing Americans are strongly against illegal immigration? Poll after poll sends a clear message to politicians that Americans are fed up with sanctuary cities and open border policies and losing their jobs to people who shouldn’t even be here in the first place. Yet the Biden administration has removed most if not all of the immigration reforms that the previous administration put in place creating a border crisis that DHS says is an overwhelming surge of migrants at the
Similar polls conducted show that the American people believe having a job and maintaining a strong economy are far more important than fighting global warming that destroys jobs and crushes economies for a junk science that makes doomsday predictions that never come to fruition and when the time limit arrives the climate change tyrants are already making new dire predictions.
People want to heat their homes, pay less to fill up their vehicles to drive to their jobs, and they have made this crystal clear yet the watermelons in government who keep pushing “climate justice” policies ignore what the people want and force the exact opposite scenarios from what the people have told them they want, and once again all because they think they are smarter than you the great unwashed. In fact, they are so smart that they know what is best for you and your children better than you. Again, just ask them. They will tell you.
In 2016 and 2020 the American people voted for America First policies because that is how America was founded and it’s what is best for our country and in the end for the rest of the world as well. Yet the American people have watched the Biden administration take us back to the Obama years of America dead last.
So in light of living with the insufferable arrogance of the ruling class being so out of touch with the American people a mask mandate is seen as a perfect symbol of the government’s desire to control every aspect of your life. And now they the rulers have a symbiotic relationship with the Big Tech tyrants, whatever the censors of the tech world fail to stop you from living free the government will follow up with that final nail in liberty’s coffin.
Mask mandates are a sign that Democrats are turning our country into a police state where unless they are stopped you will one day wake up without any civil liberties at all, and yes, that includes the useful idiots on the Left who support mask mandates.
The modern-day crop of Democrats are ruling with the mantra of never letting a crisis go to waste. Everything they want to do is predicted by a crisis. We’re going to all die in 12 years if we don’t allow the government to spend outrageous sums of money on combatting climate change because it’s a crisis. We have to insult and demean white conservative people because the country is systemically racist and it’s a crisis. We have to start a new endless war in Syria because obviously, it’s a crisis.
This is why the Biden administration will tell you that COVID is still a crisis even though we are demonstrably seeing far fewer new cases and COVID-related deaths than at any time since the pandemic began, yet at the same time they tell you that what’s going on right now at our southern border, a situation that is out of control and has overwhelmed immigration officials is not a crisis at all.
Millions of Americans believe the current government stole their way into office. And the same current government, enforced by social media and Fake News, will punish you if you even question the 2020 election results. By censoring all speech related to election irregularities the ruling class is ignoring the growing resentment toward them that will continue to grow and eventually metastasize into something malignant. It doesn’t have to be that way, but so far there are no signs that the ruling class is going to start listening to the people and much evidence that it is willing to get even more hostile and controlling.
