“I live in Montgomery County, Maryland, the most liberal swath of a liberal state. Shortly after the pandemic began, ‘I believe in Science’ lawn signs popped up like mushrooms, soon accompanied by ‘Thank You, Dr. Fauci’ placards. No matter how often politicians or bureaucrats changed Covid policies (no masks, mandatory masks, two masks are better than one), most Washingtonians retained blind faith in the wisdom of their rulers. Many of the same activists who castigated imaginary ‘microaggressions’ cheered for the feds to forcibly inject everyone with the Covid vaccine. … I was astounded at how many Washingtonians hitched their emotional wagons to official proclamations.” (03/16/23)
