Democrats cling to mask mandates despite new CDC guidelines

After more than a year of miserable lockdowns, business closures, and isolation, Americans have a reason to celebrate: the coronavirus is ending. But not everyone is jumping for joy.

Strangely enough, the prospective return of normal life has many liberals stunned and in denial — and leading Democrats are feeding the fear by refusing to drop their mask mandates. 

The convulsions started Thursday, when the CDC announced that vaccinated people can discard their masks.

Liberals in denial

It wasn’t just liberals who were taken aback by the CDC’s abrupt shift. Just weeks ago, CDC boss Rochelle Walensky said she felt a sense of “impending doom.” That phrase might better describe how many liberals seem to feel now that the virus is receding.

As Tim Carney laid out in a detailed article for the Washington Examiner, the signs are plentiful, from dropping infections to a curb in excess mortality:

The seven days leading up to May 13 saw the fewest COVID deaths of any week since July 10. And this wasn’t a blip. The seven-day moving average of deaths fell almost every day since late January until reaching 630 a day on May 13.

For conservatives, the CDC was finally admitting the obvious with its decision. But after more than a year of following the shifting and contradictory advice of health authorities without question, and shaming anyone who was not, many liberals responded with shock, anger and denial.

All across social media this weekend, many said the rollback was premature and that they would keep wearing their masks anyway, if only to spite conservatives. It was also clear that for some, the trauma caused by a year of constant fearmongering from the high priest of the mask cult, Dr. Anthony Fauci, had already been done.

Fearmongering leaves a mark

With a third of all Americans fully vaccinated — including more than 70% of those 65 and older — it’s no surprise that COVID is on the ropes.

But it’s clear that for many Democratic politicians and party faithful, no evidence of improvement will ever be enough.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), after initially saying he would hold off, said Monday that he will, in fact, listen to the CDC’s guidelines and drop New York’s mandate, but other governors are keeping theirs.

And after weeks of increasingly tenuous and absurd mask theater from Democrats that garnered heavy criticism, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is keeping House rules that require face coverings for House members and staff anyway.

Her rationale spoke to a common fear of many Democratic voters — and hinted that the political combat wrought by the virus is not yet over. “No,” she said, when asked if she would drop the mandate for lawmakers. “Are they all vaccinated?”

  6. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    Members of the House

    Members of the Senate

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    Please, don’t make an excuse not to make the calls, excuses as they say are like A-*****, we all got one!

  7. Here’s the thing, if they want to wear them or they don’t want to wear them make no difference to me it’s called Freedom. So, now that the cdc realizes they don’t have a clue exercise you Freedom where one or not it’s up to you!

  8. FK! Biden and Harris, we should have taken care of this problem in January when we had the chance. The fence and guards around the capitol are because they know what they did and are deathly afraid we are coming for them! The whole pack of self righteous politicians in Washington and leftwing states need to pay for what they’ve done NOW!!!

  9. I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
