That phrase has become one of the main mottos of the pro-mask crowd. It basically implies that if you don’t wear a mask you are stupid. It reminds me of the pro-evolution crowd who would say the same thing. ”oh, you believe in creation, you are one of those anti-science people.” Excuse me, have you actually read major scientific studies, let’s say two books on each view and arrived at a conclusion based on serious personal study or are you just parroting statements you have heard from other incredibly biased, prejudiced people. Some of the most intelligent scientists I know believe in creationism and have very intelligent, well thought out disertations on why they believe the way they do.
It reminds me of Proverbs 18:17
The first to plead his case seems right,
Until another comes and examines him.
I regularly have people give me links to the WHO and CDC as ”science” when I say something against masks, but when I give them my links or book titles that prove masks are worthless, they are immediately discounted as quacks or having been dismissed by real scientists.
Science is based on observable facts. An observable fact is, more are wearing masks now than ever before, and the virus is spreading faster than ever before, ”Yeh, but, ” and then all the supposed scientific excuses come.
In March Dr Fauci, the Who, CDC, and many medical journals were saying, ”We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection… In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”
Than in June everyone did an 180-degree reversal. The excuse given by public health authorities was that they had initially offered anti-mask advice only to prevent a run on masks that healthcare workers needed. In newspapers and on cable networks, pro-mask messages became the norm. “Overnight, masks have become a symbol of social responsibility.” In August the Washington Post said that mask rule breakers were narcissists and dangerous.
The Washington Post also wrote, ”A new study (yeh, right) has shown that people who don’t wear masks are no longer just dumb or self-centered, they are sociopaths: people who are unconcerned with adhering to measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 tend to display higher levels of traits associated with antisocial personality disorder, also known as sociopathy.”
There is plenty of scientific proof that masks don’t work, and very little proof that they do, but the media and government have decided to make mask wearing the solution to the problem. Why?
