It’s easy to lose track of the flip flopping on masking.
Dr. Fauci was against them before he was for them, and Biden’s CDC was for the vaccinated going mask less before reversing that guidance.
Now, in the latest proof that the mask madness is here to stay, the CDC is demanding that Americans wear masks to protect against the flu and the common cold too.
CDC head Rochelle Walansky encouraged a culture of permanent masking in a new video, stating “Whether it’s an infection from the flu, coronavirus, or even just the common cold. In combination with other steps like vaccination, hand washing and keeping physical distance, wearing your mask is an important step you can take to keep us all healthy.”
As Stephen Miller noted in The Spectator, this is part of a greater effort to normalize and make permanent many of the restrictions presented as only being for the pandemic-era.
On Sunday ABC News ran a piece headlined “Got your booster? Here are 5 reasons to keep following public health measures for a bit longer” by Dr Jay Bhatt, an internal medicine physician and instructor at the University of Illinois School of Public Health. Bhatt also recommends the continuation of emergency COVID-19 protocols — such as social distancing and mask wearing — to combat the flu and the common cold.
And MSNBC’s “Morning” Joe Scarborough offered support for staying in masks on planes for another two years on Monday: “We’ve flown so many years and you hear somebody coughing and sneezing and you’re like I’m going to have the flu and halftime you did… it is one place where, man, if I can go another year and a half, two years without the flu, I’ll put that mask on in a plane where are whether I like it or not.”
And as we’ve seen, “requests from the CDC often become mandates, and they become mandates very quickly.”
