Remember how a few of us said that the mask Nazis were never gonna let kids see smiling faces again?
I hate to say we told ya so.
Yes, you read that right. This last week, the narrative on cloth masks began to shift. All of a sudden, the "experts" are saying that a dirty cloth sheet isn't enough to stop an aerosolized virus.
Nevermind that you'd be banned from social media and potentially shunned from polite society for saying that a month ago, the SCIENCE has now changed as political winds shift.
Instead of acknowledging that kids need to see faces, that the science on masks has always been dubious, and that children are more at risk from depression and anxiety than Covid, Los Angeles is doubling down on the crazy train.
Here's the email parents are reportedly getting from the superintendent:
Masks outside, required KN95s for staff, and strongly recommended KN95s for students…
Guess we need to cancel all of mainstream media for their dangerous misinformation now!
Here were a few noteworthy thoughts in case you've grown to think this kind of thing is normal.
Having lived in the Middle East, I can draw definite comparisons between the Islamic hardliners who want all women to cover their faces and the Covid hardliners who want kids to cover their faces. It has little to do with science and everything to do with religion.
