For the last many months the radical left has repeatedly told us that wearing a facial mask provides protection for people near anyone who might be carrying the disease, and this explanation by the party of Joe Biden has allowed Biden voters to scowl at us mask deniers as we went about our personal business with a free and liberated face. One has even heard tales of mask-people attacking non-mask-people, because, they said, the refusal to wear a mask allowed the exhalations of the non-mask person to inflict the disease on everyone around them.
But now that President Trump has tested positive for the disease (this test does not indicate that he is sick in any way, only that his body has been exposed to the virus, just as millions of other Americans have been exposed and are living comfortably and healthfully in spite of the Wuhan), radical Democrats are saying that the president’s reluctance to wear a mask is the reason he is now testing positive.
So the Democrats and the leftist, lying press, are, as usual, exposed as flip-floppers on the issue of the mask, like they flip-flop on so many other issues. If, as Democrats have said all along, the masks are to protect those people who may come near an infected individual, how can Trump be blamed for testing positive when he is the recipient of the virus, not the donor? And include in the calculation as to his guilt or innocence, that fact that he resisted wearing a mask as often as possible these many months since masking became radically chic. Is it now the leftist position that the mask was lacking on another person, probably a Democrat, and that the maskless Trump was simply an innocent victim? Or is there something more sinister to Trump’s contraction of the disease than we are being told by the same radical, far left press who devised the Steele Dossier and the Russia collusion investigation of our president?
There’s no doubt that regardless of how President Trump contracted the disease he’ll be blamed one way or the other by the hateful left who have politicized the disease, but the fact is that the nation can only be safe when we’ve all been exposed to the virus and have survived, or when an increasing number of Americans who test positive are a-symptomatic and never knew they were infected in the first place.
And the militant left would be wise to recall that it was no less a prophet than Dr. Fauci himself, at the outset of this Wuhan scare, who said that masks have little or no ability to halt a disease. The best thing for all of us is herd immunity, which is the reason for the success of Sweden’s dealing with the disease, but we’ll never get there with idiots like Cuomo and de Blazio repeatedly locking down the state of New York and extending the time it takes to attune our bodies with the threat of the Wuhan disease.
