We’re old enough to remember when Dr. Anthony Fauci and the other experts were telling Americans not to wear masks. A while after that, they started pushing the idea of wearing two masks: both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were double-masked this April when meeting with the Japanese prime minister. The New York Times reported in January that Biden and “some science-savvy senators” had begun to double up on masks. Then double masks quietly went away.
As Twitchy reported, CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen gave up the game a week ago when she admitted that “cloth masks are little more than facial decoration.” She walked that back a bit, saying that “everyone, including children, should be wearing at least a 3-ply surgical mask.”
Here’s Wen again, declaring that cloth masks “are not appropriate in this pandemic.”
This new CNN declaration that masks “are not appropriate in this pandemic” is an Orwellian escalation. Can the media produce amnesia on demand? And will the people cooperate by wiping their own memories?
Completely intentional. The ultimate power move

And yet Biden wanted to mandate masks for the whole country.
Reset the reset.

Masks are back in the news…it’s like on repeat…we won’t hear about them again until summer 2022 maybe?

The backtracking has begun. It’s funny but it’s not. The damage has been done and unfortunately irreversible.

Intentional psychological torture would look exactly like this.

Now that the jig is up, they're backtracking at full speed in an attempt to retain some credibility.
And sadly, many will continue to believe them.

They will cooperate by 1) splitting hairs 2) breezily opining that everyone always knew masks of any kind were a stopgap until vaccines arrived, and 3) blaming unvaccinated for obstructing the universal final solution and making the lame stopgap necessary.

Damn good observation. They’ll blame the unvaccinated.

“Cloth masks never worked, we’ve been telling you that you should have been wearing N95 all this time dummies”

Cloth masks and surgical blue masks you see everywhere, on everyone..are useless in stopping airborne transmission. Doctors and nurses wear them in surgery to stop bodily fluids from spreading (both ways) .
Society wearing them is PURELY fear based. It's psychological warfare.

Liberals have to wipe their brains on a regular basis to maintain the "current media narrative." CNN is only doing this because they know 100% that it will work.
Just look at some of the comments here already.

They know that the people that actually watch this are too stupid to remember what they said for the past 2 years and will just follow along like everything is normal. 🐑

This is from July of 2020:
"“Wearing a piece of cloth, it’s a little uncomfortable… It’s a lot less uncomfortable than ventilators, dialysis lines, all of those things that have had to happen to my father. And it’s not necessarily you that’s going to get sick and get hurt.”https://t.co/1tYmgNcFSF
