Another victory for the snarling authoritarians of the left and the pseudoright.
Fake libertarians — really, simply leftwing partisans — like AllahPundit are dismissing the freedom to not wear a mask as a trivial thing.
This is what the snarling libertarians always do to defend taking away a freedom: They sniff that the freedom we’re talking about isn’t that important, and that Good People (such as themselves, of course!) aren’t interested in exercising this particular freedom.
So, not a big loss.
It’s always this way. What is beyond infuriating is that these people pretend to be “libertarians” to defend their defection from the right to the extreme partisan Democrat left, but somehow, keep finding new reasons to defend authoritarian impositions.
As long as they come from Nancy Pelosi and other Ministers of Freedom, and not from Noted Authoritarian Donald Trump.
A “libertarian” who only supports the freedom to do the shit he wants to do personally, like smoke dope all day, is not a libertarian.
It’s just a selfish person who likes pot a lot.
No offense to the pot smokers; only offense meant to the fake, My Predilections and Only My Predilections Should be Legalized fake libertarian left.
So — more cheerleading from the “libertarians” about authoritarianism.
Hey, there’s no big deal about taking away this former freedom — it’s a Bad Freedom, and it has Harmful Consequences To Others.
Just like free speech. Another trivial little right we shouldn’t complain too much about losing, if it’s for The Greater Good.
Remember, the most important virtue in a True Conservative (Libertarian Wing) is being eager to contort oneself into any position to remain tolerable to the leftwing Karen Class.
Several GOP lawmakers refused to comply with the newly reinstated mask requirement on the House side of the Capitol on Wednesday, putting themselves at risk of having to pay hefty fines as punishment.More than half a dozen Republicans refused to wear masks on the House floor, including Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Chip Roy (Texas), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mary Miller (Ill.) and Andrew Clyde (Ga.).
…But Republicans who are among the House GOP’s most vocal firebrands made a point of refusing to wear them. Roy forced a procedural vote on a motion to adjourn to protest the reinstated mask requirement, which subsequently failed largely along party lines.
“Consider resentment being magnified right here on floor of the House of Representatives. We are absolutely sick and tired of it and so are the American people,” Roy said.
“This institution is a sham! And we should adjourn and shut this place down,” Roy added before forcing the vote.
Note that the rule that It Is Racist To Criticize Any Black Person in the Age of St. George Floyd has been temporarily and selectively suspended, as white Karens are now bossing around an unvaccinated black rep:
The resentment was on full display Wednesday as lawmakers expressed frustration with having to wear masks again.Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) was taken aback when he was about to board an elevator Wednesday with Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), whom he had seen on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” two days ago explaining why he wasn’t vaccinated.
“It’s ridiculous that you’re unvaccinated, unmasked and you’re getting into an elevator with other people,” Huffman told Donalds, before opting to board another elevator.
Huffman and Donalds, who still wasn’t wearing a mask, crossed paths again moments later as they were both entering the House chamber.
“You’re just incredibly selfish,” Huffman told Donalds.
“What are you doing? Mind your business. Leave me alone,” Donalds responded.
Strange that a leftwing Democrat would boss around an unvaccinated black person, given that the Democrats are all pretending that the most unvaccinated group are the dreaded White Working-Class Trump Supporters — ignoring the fact that blacks and Latinos are more vaccine-hesitant — or even Vaccine Denying! — than white people.
The CDC reports demographic characteristics, including race/ethnicity, of people receiving COVID-19 vaccinations at the national level. As of July 19, 2021, CDC reported that race/ethnicity was known for 58% of people who had received at least one dose of the vaccine.
It seems that the media left is taking the same approach to unvaccinated status that they took with anti-Asian hate crimes — they will never direct their messages towards black people (not in this age of St. George Floyd), but will rather attack white people for stuff that black people are doing, and hope that blacks “get the message” by the second-hand, implied bullying.
Which is also the way the media left handled the attacks on Jews — attack white people for the attacks that were almost entirely committed by blacks (with the occasional Hispanic perp), and hope that blacks “got the message” from the berating that whites were given.
Didn’t work then. Won’t work now.
He's losing it… none of it makes sense…. he knows none of it makes sense…. yet, he is clinging to a thread that looks untenable… This is when we get to the dangerous unstable part…. https://t.co/Yzt4PR9Wo4

Wait… I thought Pelosi didn’t have any control over Capital Police? She can arbitrarily order them to arrest whoever she wants? Well now, THAT’S weird.
Imagine idiot Biden telling you you’re not a smart as HE thought you were. This is the stupidest person in government, in public, possibly on the planet and he has determined someone is not as smart as HE thought they were? Certainly not as smart as the coke-snorting, crack smoking, whore-mongering, M&M-pecker-decorating, laptop losing “smartest guy he knows”, Hunter. Of course, idiot Biden thinks it is of nation interest when someone wipes his butt for him, so…
I guess, again, idiot Biden lied when he said get the vaccine, shed the mask. In his defense, though, he’s a moron.
reviewed the house rules, there is nothing in the rules that gives the bar fly the right to have resistant members of the House arrested by capital police. simply, she has no scientific or academic power to enforce this move. she has failed again to read the house rules-alcoholic idiot. no different than pedophile joey. ever wonder of the non disclosed ties between joe and Epstein? documentation is there in sequestered flight logs.
She is of the party that thinks they should be able to imprison anyone they want if it serves their political or personal goals.

I guess you didn’t bother reading your article. They aren’t talking about the face drapes that are common. They speak of three plies of “mask material” available “at your local pharmacy”. Well, what is it? How tightly is it worn?
Like I’ve said before, put an N95 mask on some of these mask Nazis and see how they feel about wearing them all day, every day.
The common blue surgical mask IS the “simple three-ply mask” that they’re talking about, Sherlock:
“Right now, they have found that simple three-ply masks are roughly 80% effective against COVID-19.”
Three ply masks made of WHAT?
““Mask materials are easy to use, but the impact is bigger,” said Khyum.”
WHAT material? It’s available, they say, from pharmacists, but what is it? How are the masks made? How are they fitted? Your article is SHIT, just like your opinions.
What do you imagine they’re made of, fairy dust and spiders webs? What are you babbling about, and why?
People are DYING because politically motivated nitwits have been lying to them and actively discouraging them from being vaccinated or from wearing masks.
Delta is spreading the fastest where vaccination rates have been the lowest, and where there’s been the most pig-headed resistance to following the simple, common sense advice that every competent medical expert and responsible public official has been providing for months. That the vaccines are highly effective at reducing serious COVID illness, hospitalizations, and deaths is AN ESTABLISHED FACT. That simple 3-ply surgical masks are effective at reducing the likelihood of COVID transmission is AN ESTABLISHED FACT. It’s not only common sense; there have been studies demonstrating this to be true.
“What do you imagine they’re made of, fairy dust and spiders webs? What are you babbling about, and why?”
Unlike you, I’m not going to fill in the information gaps and “imagine” what the facts might be. How about providing those facts?
“People are DYING because politically motivated nitwits have been lying to them and actively discouraging them from being vaccinated…”
You got that right. Their names are Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck. They all denounced the vaccines because they hated Trump. They never cared if anyone might take their lies seriously and avoid the vaccines. Fauci and the CDC have denounced masks as well.
“Delta is spreading the fastest where vaccination rates have been the lowest, and where there’s been the most pig-headed resistance to following the simple, common sense advice that every competent medical expert and responsible public official has been providing for months. ”
So, you think blacks are pig-headed. Kind of racist. For, blacks are who have resisted the vaccine the most. Of course, encouraging 1.3 million illegal immigrants to flood our border, 20% of which are infected with COVID (a rate that does up when they are packed into crowded, overwhelmed facilities) and then busing and flying them throughout the nation, paying special attention to red states, doesn’t help stem the increase in cases, does it?
The only established and proven fact about masks is that they are ineffective. Where they are mandated and where they are not have identical infection rates. Often, where masks are shunned, rates are lower. Something treated mostly as a fashion statement has no impact on the spread of the virus. Only terminally stupid people cling to that fallacy.
