The More You (Think You) Know? Maddening Covid-19 Flip-Flops Keep Population Scared, Obedient, & Ignorant
Everyone has the right to make mistakes, but with Covid-19, it’s become more than a little obvious that all the ‘fails’ err on the side of inflating the threat. Indeed, when good news comes out of any corner opposed to lockdowns or committing economic suicide, many outlets won’t even touch it. Nor do any of the self-appointed scolds ever admit that no matter how many masks a person wears over their nose and mouth, the virus could still get in through the eyes and ears.

It’s not easy to keep an entire population at the brink of hysteria, but the supposed figures of authority in this pandemic are doing a pretty good job, with flip-flops that almost seem designed to keep us confused and scared.
It took just a few days for US coronavirus czar Dr. Anthony Fauci to change his tune regarding multi-masking, the trendy if bizarre practice of wearing more than one face covering at the same time in an effort to avoid infection with coronavirus. Fauci initially came out in support of the practice, touting it as “common sense” given the supposedly super-contagious new strain of Covid-19 on the loose.
However, the health official admitted a scarce few days after that “there’s no data that indicates that that [double-masking] is going to make a difference and that is the reason why the CDC has not changed its recommendation.”
This particular issue may have sprung from a CNBC reporter’s innocent misreading of a research paper suggesting triple-layer masks might show some superiority over single-layer face coverings – but even that conclusion was based on a hypothesis, rather than an actual study.
