Apparently, there is no amount of evidence garnered from science, studies, actual evidence, trends or anything else that real science uses to convince public health officials that wearing a mask does absolutely nothing to stop or even control the spread of COVID-19.
Coronavirus cases are continuing to spike, though many are false positives from sensitive PCR tests, even though the fact that over 90 percent of the American people are complying with draconian mask mandates. And yet, even with 90 percent of people in compliance, the virus just keeps on infecting people.
No matter how much mask skeptics like me point out that top epidemiologists say that masks make no difference whatsoever, there will always be the fearful cowering on the other side demanding we disprove a negative by saying it would have been much worse had we not worn masks at all.
This is an age-old trick of the Left. They never admit that any of their programs have failed, even though 99 and 44/100 percent of them are abysmal failures. What they do in the face of evidence that they failed is to say “Well, it would have been a helluva lot more worse if we had done nothing.” Except the truth is that their programs and policies are usually so stupid things would have been much better had we done nothing at all, because their programs usually bring us a lot of unintentional consequences.
The reason it’s so hard to counter the mask dictators now is because when this virus first struck nobody knew exactly what we were dealing with, and the so called medical experts were telling us that the “science” was saying we had to wear masks. After a while people got used to the idea of wearing a mask for our own protection. It became normalized. It later became a tool of the Left to enhance their tyrannical mandates, so much so that their buddies in the mainstream news media and the overlords in social media began censoring doctors who tried to even talked about how masks were not safe. But there is a way to prove the pinheads running the show on mask mandates are wrong by simply comparing their numbskull mandates to the data from the few remaining free states.
Here’s a case in point. In the state of Florida, there are 22 of the 67 counties that implemented mask mandates at some point between May 1, 2020 and December 15, 2020, and they included some of the largest cities. The study authors described methodology as, “Cases were summed for both mandate and non-mandate jurisdictions and adjusted per 100,000 people for days the mandates were or were not in effect.”
If the hype about the effectiveness of wearing masks was true to form, then you would expect the counties that did not implement mask orders to be raging with coronavirus sufferers throughout their countries, and the masked counties should have much more favorable numbers of COVID cases.
However, it was the mask tyrant’s worst nightmare.
“When counties DID have a mandate in effect, there were 667,239 cases over 3,137 days with an average of 23 cases per 100,000 per day. When counties DID NOT have a countywide order, there were 438,687 cases over 12,139 days with an average of 22 cases per 100,000 per day.”
That means counties that had draconian mask mandates did worse than the counties that did not force their people to wear them. I am shocked! No, I am stunned! Okay, I am shocked and stunned! Not really.
The authors analysis of the study also accounted for population density, implying that it had no impact on the numbers, since four of the twelve most populous counties in Florida didn’t have a mask order.
“When the eight DID have an order in effect, there were 64 cases per 1,000. In periods 11 of 12 DID NOT have one, there were 40,” they wrote.
And it didn’t happen that way just in Florida where all that sun is. Rational Ground’s Justin Hart and the team released a study where they compared national numbers of states that forced their healthy and innocent citizens to wear masks and the states that believe Americans are a free people and did not force their citizens to wear masks.
“When states DID have a mandate in effect, there were 9,605,256 cases over 5,907 total days and averaged 27 cases per 100,000 per day. When states DID NOT have a statewide order there were 5,781,716 cases over 5,772 total days averaging 17 cases per 100,000 people per day.”
Rational Ground even points to human studies cited by the CDC’s Recent Scientific Brief that do not support community masking. So, then how come the Left, who claim to be all about the science, ignore the science?
There’s your “science,” leftists. Take that! We now have indisputable data that mask mandates do miniscule to absolutely nothing to stop or even slow down the spread of coronavirus. Since about 90 percent Americans are wearing masks, and masks work, then why are people who wore masks catching it, while people who don’t are not? If masks worked we would have experienced a leveling off of cases, yet they have spiked since November all across the country, in masked communities more so than non-masked communities.
But the tyrants on the Left will always come back with their doctors and scientists, all of whom have a globalist agenda like the rest of the Left, and claim their guys say it’s the exact opposite, but their guys never provide and actual proof the way ours do.
