The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest confused pronouncement about masks is another blow to the embattled agency, whose track record hasn’t been exactly brilliant.
For months, the CDC has married a god-awful communications strategy with a determination to cater to the most irrational whims of the paranoid, triple-masking urban gentry: the whims of the archetypical Karen, in other words.
The latest stutter-step is an embarrassment for the public health establishment and for a Team Biden left trying to explain what the CDC meant. But there’s also an opportunity here for Republicans heading into the 2022 election: The GOP should run as the anti-lockdown party — the anti-Karen party.
A recent Rasmussen poll indicates that broad swaths of America are skeptical of the lockdown response to the pandemic. What’s most interesting is that the skepticism is highest among groups that are key Democratic constituencies.
Overall, a majority of voters — 55 percent — agree that “despite good intentions, shutting down businesses and locking down society did more harm than good.” Only 38 percent disagree, with the rest unsure.
But the really interesting part is the racial breakdown: White Democrats reject the idea that lockdowns did more harm than good by a 30-plus-point margin. Nonwhite Democrats, on the other hand, are evenly divided.
The divide widens on the question of whether government officials will hold on to too much power in the future: 62 percent of voters say yes. Nearly two-thirds of white Democrats disagree. But note well: By a whopping 64-27 margin, black Democrats fear that officials will abuse their vast new powers.
……There is a great deal of pent-up frustration and resentment over the inconvenience, the loss of freedom and the general climate of hectoring that the government’s pandemic response has created. It’s irritating to be lectured by officials who claim to be smarter than you. It’s infuriating to be lectured by government officials who claim to be smarter than you — but clearly aren’t.
The on-again/off-again claims on masks and vaccination are just part of it. Tired of masks? Get vaccinated, they told us. Now they’re saying wear a mask, even if you’ve been vaccinated and even if you’re associating with others who’ve been vaccinated.
And there’s talk of more lockdowns, which a growing body of scientific evidence suggests were perfectly useless and downright harmful.
After the mass panic subsided people began to realize that the lockdowns didn’t just cost livelihoods and jobs, but also caused thousands of deaths due to people not receiving the treatment they needed for heart problems, cancer, dementia, etc. They’ve also realized this country was shut down over a virus with a 99% recovery rate. 94% of the fatalities had underlying health issues. The CDC, Fauci, and the Biden regime are incompetent and willfully engaged in lying to the public.
Big government authoritarians realize the jig is up; that’s why they’ve come out with warnings about “variants” in an attempt to prolong the gaslighting.
There are unhinged paranoid germaphobes and power-hungry jackboots who want force the risky vaccines on everyone from newborn to elderly. But they don’t want to stop there. They want you to pile as many masks on your face as you can and forget about breathing. They would like nothing less than a an endless lockdown. Don’t like it? Then you’re selfish.
I will not wear a mask, nor will I allow that government-concocted vaccine to be injected into my body. The COVIDIOTS can take all the jabs they want and social distance themselves right off a cliff. The rest of us choose life over fear.
