“At this point, it’s no longer news that The Experts[TM] have lied to the public about masks. It’s been proven time and time again that masks and the mandates enacted by terrified politicians do not work. And yet, the inaccuracies spread by ‘experts’ and their allies in the media have permanently taken hold for a significant portion of the population. … At its heart, the debate around masks revolves around ideology. For years, ‘experts’ decried the importance of masking, quite literally laughing at suggestions that they would make a significant difference …. Ideology and groupthink has become so important and pervasive among ‘experts’ that they easily abandoned their previously stated positions in order to conform to what’s expected of them politically.” (06/15/22)
