Jon Levy, professor and chair of the Department of Environmental Health at Boston University's School of Public Health went viral last week on Twitter for wearing a N-95 mask in his office while he was on a Zoom call.
Then he went viral again among the Covid-forever types when he tweeted out an insanely long thread to justify his unreasonable neurosis.
You can read it all, it's 21 tweets long and mostly just repeating talking points of Covid obsessed people who rationalize their continued fearful behavior.
(You're killing the ocean creatures with your expensive habits, Jon)
But here's the ACTUAL crazy thing. Our taxpayer-funded National Public Radio interviewed him in order to try to lend some sort of credibility to this Covid crazy.
To truly understand the insanity, I suggest listening to the interview, but I'll examine the transcript for you here and explain just why everything he says is, indeed, insane.
PFEIFFER: At BU, where you work, wearing a mask is optional, but you were doing it anyway, even on a video call in virtual isolation. Why take that extreme level of precaution?
LEVY: Even though I was on a video call, obviously, I was in a physical space, which is my office, and it shares air with other offices and with the bathrooms that are just across the hall from my office. It's important, I think, to remember that COVID is transmitted through the air, and it can linger for a long time. As I mentioned on Twitter, you know, I have a spouse who treats COVID patients. I have kids who are in schools where masking is optional. And so I could be a source at any point in time to my department. And, of course, there are other people, students and faculty, who could be sources to me. And so wearing a mask protects me from others and protects others from me.
Okay, so after this answer, a serious interviewer's follow-up question would be to ask WHY he thinks he could spread Covid even through the walls and the air duct systems.
A serious interviewer would ask "what's your evidence for masking being effective?"
But that's not what we get.
PFEIFFER: Someone screenshotted a picture of you in your mask and shared it with other people. And it sounds like there was some pretty extreme feedback. What kind of reactions did you get?
LEVY: So the the context was on a Zoom to discuss the potential need for more public health protections. And I think some people saw the fact that I was wearing a mask on the Zoom and thought that that was some sort of signal, an attempt to frighten people or virtue signal or just some sense that I was not approaching this in a fair-minded way. And so I think that, you know, the image was shared to sort of perhaps undermine my argument or say that I was, you know, going over the top with COVID.
Next, our taxpayer-funded media doesn't ask him a question about his reasoning, they just let him make his case without any evidence and then ask him what it's like being a victim of online hate.
(AND WHAT ABOUT THE OCEAN CREATURES DYING FROM ALL THOSE MASKS? C'MON, NPR!)
Maybe this is controversial, but it's okay to think someone wearing a mask alone in a room is acting extremely illogically. Why aren't we asking him why his extreme measures contradict even the most strict CDC recommendations?
Levy goes on to explain how it's not a big deal to wear a mask alone in a room. It seems like Covid mania has affected his brain and broken him.
These people cannot go back to normal. They are completely sold on masking forever.
