With an massive election approaching, the Democrats are looking for any angle they can to win back voters after Biden’s disastrous first year in office resulted in what appears to be a historically rapid downfall for the liberal movement.
American voters have largely moved away from the radical leftism currently invading the Democrat Party and have finally considered going over to “the dark side.”
However, what Democrat leaders are doing vis a vis mask mandates is unconscionable and beyond belief. The level of political hackery, hypocrisy, and down-right evil is truly beyond the pale. They should all lose their jobs or even be imprisoned for the blatant disregard of human rights, especially for children.
Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul is set to announce and end to her state’s indoor mask-or-vaccine mandate.
Hochul vows to keep mask requirements in schools, though.
Wait, aren’t children the least vulnerable population to contract and spread the virus? What part of the “science” is directing Hochul to make this decision now? And why are so many Democrat-led states following suit?
Is it because the mask mandates were never based on “science” and instead used as a political tool by Democrats to distance themselves from the “conspiratorial anti-Fauci” Republicans?
New York has one of the most stringent COVID-19 restrictions currently in place in America, with indoor businesses required to check for proof of vaccination from customers or require them to wear masks. Hochul will reportedly join a litany of other Democratic governors who have decided in recent days to loosen coronavirus restrictions, such as New Jersey’s Phil Murphy and Delaware’s John Carney.
Hochul’s mandate was set to expire Thursday, and according to the NYT she will let it lapse without renewal.
Some Democrats and their allies have suggested that mask mandates can now be dropped due to new science, such as data suggesting cloth masks do little to contain virus spread and that vaccines work well against Omicron.
However, one ofJoe Biden’s top COVID-19 advisers admitted as early as August 2021 that cloth masks are not particularly effective at preventing COVID-19 from spreading, and there was never any evidence showing that vaccines available in the U.S. were not effective at preventing hospitalization or death from the Omicron variant.
Meanwhile, polling suggests that Americans may be turning against continued restrictions to fight the pandemic. An Axios-Ipsos poll released Tuesday, conducted Feb. 4-7, found that a majority of Americans want to reopen society fully or begin moving in that direction, and two-thirds accept that the U.S. will not eradicate the virus within the next year.
What a clown world we live in today!
