After CDC Changes Mask Rules, Democrats Vow To Ignore The Science And The Experts

CDC Changes Mask Rules, Lefties Need A Safe Space

On Thursday, the Center For Disease Control (CDC) made the announcement nearly every American has been waiting for: people who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 no longer need to wear a mask either indoors or out, or practice social distancing. 

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Thursday afternoon, “We have all longed for this moment when we can get back to some sense of normalcy.” 

President Joe Biden also seemed happy to announce that one of the most burdensome requirements on Americans due to the Coronavirus pandemic, wearing a face mask, was going away.

But if you thought leftists and Democrats would be happy with the announcement, you would be wrong. Very, very wrong.

The Left Now Questions “The Experts”

This is all extremely confusing to the Left. For over a year now, we have heard nothing but “trust the science!” and “trust the experts!” And dutifully, they believed just that, and branded anyone who thought differently a “science denier.”

Now, if you look at the replies to the tweets from the White House and Joe Biden, you’ll find hundreds, perhaps thousands of Democrats vowing to ignore the experts and the science.

Just take a quick gander: 

Some, while COVID-free, are also free of any sense of irony:

Confusion Running Amok

The new CDC guidelines seem to be putting the Left in a position of having to alter their new lifestyle. The problem is that, they didn’t want to alter their lifestyle. 

The experts are no longer immune from criticism from us mere lowly citizens, it seems:

Maybe there will even be a special section on airplanes for those who say mask wearing “just makes good common sense.” 

Will they give out masks with a hole in the center for a straw if you want a drink?

The Left’s ‘New Normal’

This whole idea of freedom makes lefties very uncomfortable. The rest of us are just going to have to give them some time to adjust to life being free of things like shaming others into wearing a mask.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow perhaps accidentally explained the entire worldview of half of our countrymen:

“I feel like I’m going to have to rewire myself so that when I see someone out in the world who’s not wearing a mask, I don’t instantly think, ‘You are a threat, “Or you are selfish or you are a Covid denier and you definitely haven’t been vaccinated. I mean, we’re going to have to rewire the way that we look at each other.”

So, to sum up, we are once again free to question the experts!

Operative phrase, “make more people fall in line.”
