What’s Behind the Dems’ Magic Mask Reversal?

AMAC Exclusive By: Tammy Bruce

It’s been fascinating watching various blues cities and states suddenly reverse themselves on mask mandates for children and their other onerous and even anti-science COVID-19 edicts. For two years we watched and were pummeled by seemingly arbitrary rules about masks, behavior, lockdowns, and distancing. The rules were written in quicksand, with lead poobah Dr. Anthony “I’m Science” Fauci regularly flip-flopping on most issues.

And then, like magic, Democrats and their media enablers were struck by a sudden epiphany that mask mandates were no longer needed! What changed? The year changed into a year with a midterm election, that’s what. All these emergency rules to save everyone’s lives are apparently not so necessary, proving again the argument that the efforts to micro-manage our lives, destroying mental health, crushing small businesses, and the education and well-being of children, absurdly done in the name of “safety,” has all along been about politics and control.

The contempt felt for the average American is always on display by the establishment, but one of the best examples throughout the debacle of COVID response comes from Dr. Leana Wen, a former Commissioner of the Baltimore City Health Department, former head of Planned Parenthood, and now with CNN and the Washington Post (of course). In other words, someone you can trust to bring you the Democrat and Leftist narratives.

On CNN, when asked if she agrees with the mask mandate reversal, she said yes because “the science has changed.” Yeah, no. The only thing that has changed is what best suits the election prospects of Democrats.

The pandemic, like other tragedies and catastrophes, was always viewed by the Democrats as an opportunity. Former mayor of Chicago and Obama advisor Rahm Emanual once said the quiet thing out loud when he remarked in public during the 2008 financial crisis, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

It got them the White House in 2020, and they presumed maintaining the same fear and chaos would continue to bring them political dividends. Once again, however, the left underestimated the American people, especially American parents and families.

For a year now, the fecklessness and incompetence of the Democrats have been on full display. Their disconnect from the American people is a nonpartisan catastrophe for them. Most average people, Democrat, Independent, or Republican, care about the children, the future, and the safety of their families. All of that has been smashed by the Biden administration and its enablers.

Keep in mind, the perpetual pandemic we’ve been living through was meant to become the ‘new normal.’ COVID-19 was an emergency at the start, but it stopped being one once we understood what it was, had the vaccines, and grasped the importance of treatments and therapies. But it is the “State of Emergency” that allows states and the federal government to use extraordinary measures, like mask and vaccine mandates, school and business closures, and lockdowns. As some on social media have observed, a State of Emergency for two years is also known as a Police State.

Democrats were so obsessed with gazing at their navels they were shocked with the outcome of the Virginia election. This was a huge awakening for the left and a rejection of their maniacal obsession with excising parents from the education of their children, which flipped Virginia red.

Throughout the last year, polls have been brutal for Mr. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, both underwater by double-digits. The latest Real Clear Politics average has Mr. Biden at his approval nadir with 39.8 percent, disapproval at 54.4 percent.

Their awakening to the disaster of all of their policies is also tied to the Democrats launching their own internal polls as the primary season comes up. The November election is one thing, but both parties are dealing with primaries with which they will select their nominees. The earliest is in March, with most unfolding in May and June. What the Democrats and their candidates are seeing from polls of likely voters in their own party must be a complete disaster.

Virtually in unison, blues states and cities are abandoning mask mandates almost as quickly as Biden abandoned Americans in Kabul and Ukraine.

Massachusetts and New York just announced they, too, are lifting mask mandates. This follows Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and even California. But some, like New York and California, are leaving in place the masks for children. Who are these people that lifting the mask mandate for adults is fine, but then leave it in place for kids, the least vulnerable? Once again, it confirms the deadly and abusive politics of the Democrats. It’s the teachers’ unions they’re worried about, not our children, no matter what the harm. You and yours are expendable.  

The good news is the quiet rage being gauged in polls is forcing these tiny tyrants to reverse themselves. But it should never have happened in the first place. And they will do it again given the chance. No matter their frantic effort to erase the reality of their intentions, we will not forget and will continue to make our feelings known at school board meetings, at our city councils, and during elections throughout this year locally and nationally.

Ms. Bruce’s comments are right on the mark. The Democrats are finally waking up. As Ms. Bruce clearly states November is on their minds.

This has never been about safety of the public. It has been about control. Big pharma has been making money off vaccines and tests. The medical institutions make money from emergency care and billing insurance and the government. Insurance companies are making money from rising insurance premiums. All the people are left with is another 3 trillion of debt. As you can see follow the money —there is the problem. This lady has it right.

Democrats realize that the American people are fed up with their fear mongering regarding covid (and a lot of other things). They realize that they have to do something wonderful if they aren’t going to lose their shirts in November. The mask issue is just another shenanigan that Democrats are using in hopes that Americans are as dumb and forgetful as they think we are!! My hope is that more Americans will prove them wrong and remember all of the crap that they have tried and succeeded to dish out to us in the past several decades!!!

Just another Democrat scam. It reminds me of what I noticed when Bill Clinton was president; if he was opposed to a piece of legislation and it still passed with a veto-proof vote, he would get in front of the cameras immediately before anyone else had a chance, and proclaim victory for getting the legislation passed. So, even though he had fought tooth and nail against it, when it passed he took credit for getting it passed.
This is what the Democrats are trying to do with the mask mandates and vaccine mandates in areas where it is no longer possible to crush the citizens into submission.

the ONLY “science” the democrats have ever followed throughout this whole pandemic is the political science. Also, in addition to the sinking poll numbers of this administration and the sinking midterm election hopes of the democrats, has it occurred to anybody that the American people have had enough of the hypocritical attitude of “mask for me, not for thee” attitude of the democrats? I know I have enough of that garbage.

All the lefties care about is power and money. Like the moron who is in control of Canada they consider the working class to be their servants, cooking for them, bringing their food to them, making their clothes, etc. And they have no interest in the laws, rules and mandates, those are for their subjects, the dirty working class folk.

Well if I can say anything about this article, it’s that Tammy Bruce holds nothing back. Had to chuckle out loud at her comment about Dems’ obsession for staring at their navels. Hadn’t heard that one before. Ms. Bruce definitely laid it all out.

Last week “science” said “masks= good” but now… They’re following the SCIENCE… poll-itical science that is! Assuming they actually believe their BS, apparently “people’s lives” are less important then getting elected because, as they’ve stated before: “no masks means you’re a murderer of children!”

It is quite clear that the shift of political will on the progressives has shifted to “neutral” in order to give an appearance of changing their one-track minds, however if provided the opportunity they will again throw it into overdrive to regain any power lost and expand their ability to take more, all at the cost of the American family, values and beliefs.

The IL Dem. Gov. Pritzker is suddenly saying that masks will be optional in most settings later this month. The elections are coming. After he is reelected by Chicago or another Dem. is selected by the Chicago Democrat party, who knows what will happen.

I know! Right after the mid-terms it will be back to business as usual, except for the huge battle they will hopefully be fighting against the plenty of newly elected American conservatives. They’re s tarting to say what the people want to hear but they’re just trying to buy back votes.

Never ever forget that democrats and rino’s (sorry for being redundant), are focused on one thing control period. To have control they need to be re-elected. Hopefully voters have had enough of their lies and will vote these clowns/tyrants out of office/control

I do believe the real reason is the rapidity with which the truckers in polite Canada assembled and lined up and had so many thousands of ordinary Canadians lining the streets in gratitude and support.
It seems like only yesterday the powers that be were warning us that even if Omicron is going, the next variation is going to be worse than ever and will need a rigorous response.
Then the truckers showed up and suddenly everyone is finding the mandates unnecessary.

That and there is this year, mid term elections. Our billionaire governor Pritzker announced mask mandate will end at the end of this month!!! and low and behold, after four years of killing all of us here in Illinois with massive taxes, will be lowering them for 1 year. (Look out after the year is over if he gets in there again)

You Republicans are being duped. In a couple of months things will be so bad Biden will be forced to reopen the Canadian pipeline, reopen Alaska and the Dakotas; close the southern border and cancel the stupid regulations he passed. By election time those things will make him look like a genius and sweep the democrats right back in office.

Ha! I never thought of that. But, as my husband says, that is not a true democrat move. Their agenda is so different from republicans, independents and conservatives. They can not admit that they were ever wrong and put BACK into effect what President Trump did and truly, that would not bring in what they want most of all and that is socialism. Can’t see it happening. But you never know these days.

Watch out. If the government is forced to reside mandates, the next big thing will be climate change. They must govern by fear whatever it takes.

On February 10th, Nevada’s Democratic Governor, Sisolak, lifted Nevada’s mask mandate. Many Democrats were crying because they could not find new facial diapers, and now they find many!

Commie Sisolak only wants to end mask mandates (and hopefully the jab mandates as well) right now so that hopefully by the time the elections come around folks will be so used to ‘normalcy’ returning they will forget this whole fiasco and re-elect him. I hope everyone who got put out of work, or had their businesses bankrupted, or even individuals who went bankrupt DO NOT forget how they got that way.

Reply to Jerry, It does seem impossible that 39.8% of people could think that brain dead Biden is doing a good job, but its sad to say that there are a lot of people in this country that are just as brain dead as he is.

How the hell did he get 39.8% Are there that many ignorant voters in America?

It’s worse than you would think as the top he could probably get is 51% and you have to figure a lot of democrats would likely vote for him even if they don’t approve. Dupe another 11.2% to vote for him and he’s actually won without the fraudulent ballots. We should not be celebrating unless his numbers are under 25% and even then I would not expect a slam dunk. If we don’t secure our elections by removing the fraudulent registrations we’re screwed.
