Masking Policies

Covid-19 has been a huge issue in the past 20 months (really, 20!?). Masks are an extremely touchy subject as well. Some believe that they should just deal with it, it doesn’t harm them, so just put up with it for a while. Others refuse to wear a mask under any circumstances. But what should we be doing? I want to break it down and find the truth in numbers and facts that the media has not been entirely truthful with.

Masks are not helpful, period. In fact, they’re actually harmful. Even Dr. Michael Osterholm, formerly one of Joe Biden’s top Covid advisors, told the public that cloth and disposable masks are not effective. The Surgeon General, Jerome Adams, also commented last year, saying: “Seriously people -- STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus,”.

Mike Ryan of the WHO still declared: “There is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit. In fact, there's some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly,". The same month of March, 2020, Anthony Fauci insisted: "There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”

Of course, all of these people were either fired, or “changed their minds” on the subject. Masks are harmful to all people, children and adults alike. Masks are shown to increase headaches, dizziness, and heart rate while decreasing empathy perception and blood oxygen levels to name just a few.

Young children wearing masks are a specific concern as well. Masks have been proven to harm development as a child grows. For one, parents are supposed to show their children to be brave and face the world instead of cowering in a corner; scared of a disease they have a .005% chance of dying from. Children should be learning how to play well with others and how to enjoy themselves. Instead, they are being forced to cover their face, harming their social skills and ability to empathize with others.

The entire "Heroes wear a mask" policy was created to merely bring about control. Scare the citizens, make them fear for their lives, and the government has the control of said lives. A Chinese whistleblower - from the Wuhan lab - reported the Chinese government intentionally released the Covid-19 virus as a way to bring control and power to the country. I don’t believe we should be wearing masks under nearly any circumstances; they are proven to do more harm than good in physical, emotional and mental health categories.

Data released by the CDC tells us that only 6% of reported Covid deaths did NOT have pre-existing medical conditions. The average person who died of Covid was 82 years old and had 2.6 pre-existing conditions. Using that information, combined with the CDC admitting 94% of reported Covid deaths were not related to Covid; we can conclude there is a very small chance of dying from Coronavirus. So why are we still so restricted and limited in our daily lives?

Simple answer; the government wants total control. If they can control our actions by simple publicity through the media, what else could (and will) they do? Just ask AOC who only pulled her mask up for a picture. Masks don’t matter to them, control does. If masks truly mattered, they wouldn’t contradict themselves so often.

We should utilize the phrase “My body, my choice” in a time like this to show the Left’s double standards on their beliefs. Mask mandates should not be legal and I am so glad I am in a state without a mandate. When we are forced to wear a mask, insert drugs into our system, or stay home for “public safety” we are risking our long term freedom and safety. We are never safe; you drive or ride in a car? Do you use a knife to cut your food? Do you live on planet Earth? You will never be safe. Unless you want to be locked into a small room with white padded walls to be safe, get over yourself. You’d still die eventually anyway.

I, as a follower of Jesus, am called to stand up for truth; no matter the price. The Bible never said being a Christian would be safe; in fact, it said the exact opposite in John 16:33: “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” We should never give up our God given freedom for “safety” from a virus that has almost no chance of killing us.
