The Scream by Edvard Munch

From the desk of Robert Zimmerman:  “Three more stories in the past few weeks have proven once again what I and many others saw unequivocally more than a year ago: The panicky response to COVID was unwarranted and not based on the actual facts on the ground but on manipulated and unproven assumptions.”

“Those assumptions were touted for purely political reasons. Worse, too many Americans meekly accepted those assumptions without any of the kind of mature skepticism that is required of adult citizens in a democratic republic. The result: Our rights were violated and false and corrupt politicians gained power, power they eagerly abused.”

“First, officials in Alameda County in California revealed on June 4th that they have reduced the number of COVID deaths in that county for the past year by about 25%, from 1,634 to 1,223.”

More:   “Finally, a study published two weeks ago confirmed once again what has been known from repeatedly proven science research for more than century: masks are useless at reducing the spread of such respiratory diseases like COVID”:

The study, conducted by the University of Louisville using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that “80% of US states mandated masks during the COVID-19 pandemic,” but while “mandates induced greater mask compliance, [they] did not predict lower growth rates when community spread was low (minima) or high (maxima).” The study also found that “mask mandates and use are not associated with lower SARS-CoV-2 spread among US states.”

“Our findings do not support the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates decrease with greater public mask use,” the study said, as reported by Townhall’s Spencer Brown.

“Masks are a Potemkin Village of “feel-good” virtue-signalling. They do nothing to protect anyone from getting sick, and if used improperly — which practically everyone does — might actually increase the chances you will get sick, since used improperly they are unsanitary pieces of cloth covering the very place you breath.”

“Take the mask off, throw it away, and resolve to never be fooled by these corrupt health officials ever again.”

Read the whole thing, I insist:  More evidence the COVID-19 panic was just that: an unwarranted panic (behindtheblack.com)
