Mask Insanity: Liberal Claimed ‘Second Smartest Town’ In the USA Goes Gaga For Masks Despite CDC Change
Masks are no longer about “science,” liberals are making it a partisan issue.
Officials in the claimed “second most educated town” in America are ignoring their state health officials and CDC guidelines, they will continue to wear masks outdoors.
Despite the fact that it makes no sense, the outdoor mask mandate will remain in place until further notice in Brookline, Massachusetts.
“Our face covering requirement has served as a protective layer that limits the possibility of spreading COVID-19 and we are reluctant to relax it at this time without further public input and review by the Advisory Council on Public Health,” said Brookline Health Commissioner Dr. Swannie Jett.
The town of Brookline appears to be (forgive the term) Karen central.
Last year, parents were frustrated trying to get their kids back in the classroom and one of the top epidemiologist in the nation, Sharon Abramowitz, who lived there, volunteered to help make school safe. Teachers held up the opening and Abramowitz gave up and relocated to her second home in Vermont so her kids could go to school.
“Sorry to be all UNICEF about it,” Abramowitz, who does work for UNICEF, said when we spoke in September, “but education is a fundamental human right for all children.”
Some in the progressive community love their masks, from the New York Times:
My neighborhood is fussy, but reports from colleagues and friends living elsewhere in the city – in Park Slope, Crown Heights, Harlem and Morningside Heights – suggested a continued high compliance despite the relaxation of mandates. in this way, it is easy to see the mask evolving as an expression of cosmopolitanism long past its necessity. If defiance was the style of one kind of culture warrior, mask commitment, regardless of the science, would be the ritual of another.
In other words, masks are becoming a statement of snobbery instead of a necessity.
It would be nice if these same elitist were so committed to boosting their immune system and losing weight which actual science has reported does more for you to fight COVID than a little piece of cloth (who am I kidding these people are double masking).
If liberal communities want to stay in their basement, that’s fine, at the very least that means the normal people are out and we don’t have to deal with the crazy people because they are staying home.
