mask mandates

Don’t Mask, Don’t Tell

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

At the beginning of June, there were Events That Shall Not Be Named (by the media) that caused people to scream, march shoulder to shoulder, sing, go inside for a funeral in closed quarters, and gather in tight places (George Floyd). The days of the virus being treated as an epidemiological question are long over. The media ignores positive, solid data and amplifies fearful interpretations. Politicians dealing with the virus need to understand that the trust from their voters has completely eroded and make policy accordingly. Allowing thousands of people to gather without a mask mandate has a lot to do with it.
