While forcible masking of adults is immoral and illogical, the masking of children is downright satanic. Even if, in some alternate universe, cheap Chinese face burkas worked against transmission of particles much smaller than their pores, the virus poses no statistically meaningful danger to children. Together with the hiatus of the flu, children are actually better off than they’ve ever been in terms of viruses. So why, as a free people, are we forcibly masking babies often younger than two years old with no regard for the evidence of masking’s efficacy or the physical and psychological damage of such demonic measures?
By now, most of us have seen the outrageous video of a family being thrown off a Frontier Airlines flight in Miami, when the child caught not wearing a mask was reportedly a baby younger than 2 years old. As outrageous as the story is, we have become desensitized to the fact that children across the country are being masked for seven hours a day every day. How can this be tolerated for another day, especially when our “leaders” plan on doing this indefinitely? Where are the lawsuits? Where are the numerous GOP-controlled legislatures banning this draconian form of child abuse?
Evidently, Italy values freedom more than we do. Last week, il Giornale, a daily newspaper in Milan, reported that an Italian court ruled in favor of a parent who sought an exemption from the mask mandate for their child who suffers from breathing issues. Although the court ruling applied only to that particular plaintiff, the judge found that the government “has not provided proof of the scientific validity, for the purpose of containing the spread of the COVID virus, of the use of masks during school hours” and that therefore “[masking] is suspended immediately.”
What is so absurd is that even if masks worked, children are not threatened by this virus, nor are they vectors of spread. Children are actually being abused at a time when respiratory viruses are a lower threat to them than ever, even according to Biden’s top coronavirus adviser, Dr. Michael Osterholm.
“We are seeing almost no viral respiratory pathogens today in our pediatric population,” said Osterholm on a talk show last week (beginning at 16:40 mark). “If you go look at our hospitalization rates for kids, it is dramatically below what we’ve seen in recent years.”
So why did the flu disappear? Because of the masks? Not a chance.
“Now, you can’t say it’s just because of mitigation, because frankly we haven’t done all that well with mitigation with COVID-19,” continued the famed University of Minnesota scientist. “Look at all the cases we’ve had. So, if, in fact, it were just that, you’d expect to see at least some activity with flu and with the other viral repository pathogens. So, I think there is something going on here that mother nature is doing and across a diverse area of the world that we just don’t understand.”
Indeed, when the politicians and the “scientists” were still predicting a “twindemic” of the flu and COVID back in the early fall, I proved, with the help of Kyle Lamb, that the flu had disappeared in areas and during times when people were not wearing masks or locked down.
The point is that masks played no role in mitigating any of this, and children are better off than ever before. So why are we continuing the abuse of endless masking?
It’s simply an article of faith – a modern-day version of Moloch, whereby we sacrifice the physical and mental health of a generation of children to the gods of virtue-signaling.
Just how absurd is mask-wearing? We know that 87% of particles with influenza viral RNA are smaller than 1 micrometer, with many particles as small as less than one-tenth of a micrometer. One study that examined a sample of over 11,000 particles found that over 90% of SARS-CoV-2 particles were smaller than 0.3 microns, which clearly means this virus is primarily an airborne transmission virus. Most people who are together indoors for long periods of time, who are responsible for most of the transmission, wear cloth masks. Studies have shown most cloth masks have pores between 80 to 500 micrometers and that they expand with each washing. It is simply ludicrous to suggest that they can have any degree of efficacy, any more than using a screen door on a submarine.
The reality is that if you are indoors with someone who is predisposed to spread and you are pre-disposed to getting the virus (both factors still unclear and likely out of our hands), you will get infected regardless of masks or the ritualistic six-foot distance. While relatively large droplets, 100 micrometers for example, fall to the ground within a few seconds (even larger spittle falls immediately) and rarely wind up in someone else’s mouth, the microscopic aerosols can remain suspended for days.
How can we permanently mask our children, beginning with toddlers, based on such anti-scientific insanity?
European officials seem to be fighting harder for liberty than Americans. Yesterday, the U.K. Express published comments from experts and school officials decrying recommendations in England that children be masked in schools.
“The use of masks in classrooms will undoubtedly be detrimental to learning particularly for any children with learning impairments or any special educational needs,” wrote Ross Jones, former consultant pediatrician, in the British Medical Journal.
Jones noted that even the WHO’s recommendation of masking schoolchildren states that it should be “accompanied by monitoring not only of any effect in reducing SARSCoV-2 transmission but also of any harms to either mental or physical health, but this has not been done.”
States with GOP majorities need to pass some version of North Dakota’s HB 1323, which bars all local officials from denying entry into schools or businesses based on masks. They should also pass Tennessee’s Medical Non-Discrimination Business and Consumer Act (SB 0320/ HB 0794), which would apply anti-discrimination law to those without masks, at least to schoolchildren.
We must remember that as schools begin to reopen in critical numbers in the coming days, we will have just one shot at defining what that reopening looks like: Will it be the only normal of children interacting with each other, or will it be a satanic hell of shaming a human being for his or her own God-created face?
