Shameful CPAC Mask Mandate
The reports from the ground are that Covid-19 screening and face masks are required at CPAC 2021 being held in Orlando, Florida this weekend.
Rather than standing by science and standing by values, Republicans, even conservative Republicans, are instead deciding to virtue signal.
Virtue signaling will not work. The media will depict CPAC as a super-spreader event regardless of what precautions are taken by CPAC organizers.
Covid screening via questionnaire is flawed virtual signaling, though far less intrusive than the awful CPAC mask mandate.
Face masks do not work against the spread of respiratory viruses and may even be harmful. This information was reported by Dr Jingyi Xiao and her team in the CDCs peer-reviewed journal of epidemiology Emerging Infectious Disease in May 2020. This important review of 14 randomized controlled trials with laboratory confirmed results came out several weeks after the political hacks at the CDC suddenly started demanding that everyone mask up.
Xiao’s was the best and most authoritative paper on face masks written in 2020. The media obediently swept it under the rug. To allow anyone to suggest masks were unnecessary or that hydroxychloroquine was efficacious was to empower the bad orange man, which was to be avoided at all cost in Orwellian 2020. This was a far more important goal for some than journalistic integrity.
Behavior like that can be expected of the mainstream media. Better must be demanded of CPAC and from others within our ranks.
Mask mandates are not common sense interventions, they are physically harmful, psychologically invasive, and sociologically damaging orders that deserve no quarter among people who claim to value the individual.
My book Face Masks in One Lesson is written for individuals who want to never again wear a face mask. It gives the “why” and the “how” for those who want to confidently, legally, ethically, and safely never wear a mask again. It works so well that it became a bestseller for its category its first week out.
While politicians like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo, or companies like Whole Foods and Walmart, can be expected to need chiding on this topic of individual autonomy and can be expected to need to be taught a lesson on what works and what doesn’t work, it’s a shock
