For almost two years now, we’ve had propaganda pounded into our heads every waking moment:
“Wear a mask. Yes, we know we told you at first that you shouldn’t wear a mask, but never mind all that. Get your shots, which will keep you from getting sick or spreading the virus, unless of course you still get sick and/or spread the virus. Look, forget about our assertions of absolute truth yesterday, and just focus on our directly contradictory assertions of absolute truth today. You will listen to us, and the more we flip-flop and pretend we haven’t, the more you will trust us. If you don’t, you’re a Nazi fascist insurrectionist who probably loves Trump, and we’ll get you fired and ruin your life.”
Believe it or not, this message has not worked. People are not convinced. And the more they’re scolded, the more they dig in their heels.
Now there are cracks in the facade. We’re hearing it from Democrat politicians across the country:
We are not going to manage COVID to zero. We have to learn how to live with COVID as we move from a pandemic to an endemic phase of this virus.

Oregonians have stepped up during the Omicron surge — wearing masks, getting vaccinated and boosted, and keeping each other safe. Because of your actions, Oregon will lift mask requirements no later than March 31. Thank you. https://t.co/QGJpZyVi5t

.@RepJeffries credits Biden for states dropping mask mandates: "That’s because under President Biden's leadership, a public health infrastructure was put into place … to ensure that we can do everything possible to crush the virus, and that is what has been happening” pic.twitter.com/FDjJrjA7aB

And even from Democrat politicians who pretend to be doctors:
"The science has changed." @DrLeanaWen explains why she supports lifting some pandemic restrictions and thinks the decision to wear a mask should shift from a government mandate to an individual choice. pic.twitter.com/vaiybBBF2b

NOTE: The science hasn’t changed. Not since yesterday, anyway. No, the politics have changed.
When Democrats finally say the same thing Republicans have been saying for months or years, it’s good. Even though it’s still bad when Republicans say it. The exact same message is good and bad at the same time, depending on which political party is delivering it:

Yesterday’s ban-worthy “misinformation” becomes today’s conventional wisdom. And then they wonder why we don’t trust them.
Journos and other Democrats hope that by the time the November elections roll around, we’ll have forgotten what they’ve done to us.
Yes, absolutely yes. The democrats dug themselves into a hole that the will not be able to extricate themselves from.
The democrat party is dying and that is a good thing for America.
The sudden reversal of our current unelected regime is quite…curious.
HONK HONK HONK HONK
Oh my the science has changed
The shut down of go fund me did not work
Calling good kind people names and telling lies did not work
Trying to steal their fuel in the dead of winter so they would freeze did not work
Huh when they are done with Turdeau they are coming to the lower 48, Eeeeeek the science has really changed.
Turdeau said them shutting down the economy is terrible, I guess him doing it was wonderful, we need to see the data on that science.
GOP governors were wrong for chucking mandates, now that Democrats are it is brave and noble, another scientific mystery.
Oh ICYMI the Farmers have already arrived ,The miners are joining in, the really really big trucks are rolling.
“Thanks to idiot Biden’s leadership, only 600,000 more people died after vaccines were available!”
I’m not sure idiot Biden has a firm grasp on what “shut down” actually means.
Can we all agree that Pelosi, Maxine and AOC should still wear masks?
“The science has changed.” @DrLeanaWen ???
Or, more likely, the Pfizer losing it’s ploy to stretch out the data releases is forcing this change.
Instead of 55 years to keep its secrets, Pfizer now, after only the 2nd tranche of data had to admit:
If Pfizer can’t promise to cover for Dems’ lies, then Dems will pull a, “the science has changed,” rabbit out of their hat and hope we’re all dumb enough to swallow it.
Shades of the book, 1984, when Big Brother changed the chocolate ration from 30 grams a week to 20 and everybody cheered the INCREASE!
FLA gov DeSantis:
“The medical science hasn’t changed, the POLITICAL science has changed as midterm elections approach.”
Fauci says U.S. heading out of ‘full blown pandemic phase,’ sees end to COVID restrictions in coming months
I question the timing.
