For two years now, Democrats have been screaming about how we have to follow the science.
They insisted on lockdowns and mask mandates, but that’s suddenly over.
Of course, the only science that has changed is the political science.
Even some media outlets are admitting this.
NBC News reports:
Democrats turn against mask mandates as Covid landscape and voter attitudes shift
When President Joe Biden gives his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, the mask mandate will be gone in the Capitol, reflecting a stark nationwide shift for Democrats against the public safety rule that has fueled a red-versus-blue culture war.
Behind the shift is a blend of science and political science.
The Covid-19 landscape is improving, with vaccines and booster shots easily available and proving highly effective at preventing severe illness or death. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention say 70 percent of Americans reside in areas with low or medium Covid levels. All 50 states have eased or eliminated mask mandates, and the White House formally ditched its requirement Monday…
“We’ve beaten Covid. Time to take off the masks. Time to get back to life. Let’s open up our businesses. And let’s — everyone go back to having as normal a life as we can,” Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., said Friday on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.”
“It’s OK to succeed,” he said. “There are some people that are still afraid of doing that, but we can’t continue living this life.”
This is all about the midterm elections, plain and simple.
The Democrats’ internal polling on mask mandates must be absolutely brutal.
There’s no other reason why they would shift gears on this issue so suddenly.
