It appears that there is is no end in sight for the sad era of the mask in the United States of America.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has already blown past his 100-day mask “challenge” and is now indicating that Americans will be forced to wear masks through 2021 and possibly through 2022.
Biden tipped his hand during a visit to the National Institute of Health on Thursday where he was accompanied by his top health adviser, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci.
“Wearing this mask over the next year here can save lives, a significant number of lives,” Biden said.
Via Breitbart News, “Biden Urges Americans to Wear Masks ‘Over the Next Year’ to Save Lives”:
President Joe Biden is urging Americans to continue wearing masks for at least the next year in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Biden, who since taking office has made tackling the outbreak a central focus of his administration, visited the National Institute of Health (NIH) on Thursday in Maryland. As part of the trip, Biden toured the NIH’s viral pathologies division, which is responsible for identifying future pandemics, and he delivered a public address to the institute’s staff.
During his remarks, Biden, flanked on stage by Dr. Anthony Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins, discussed the situation facing the country as it sought to scale the production of coronavirus vaccines and develop a large scale distribution network. To highlight the seriousness of those efforts as well as the need for the public to remain cautious and continue following guidelines to lower the rate of coronavirus transmission, the president refused to remove his mask during the address.
“I had a little discussion with my friends behind me, Dr. Collins and Dr. Fauci, about whether or not I should take my mask off,” Biden told the audience. “And the truth is even though we are more than 10 feet away, I think it’s important that I not.
“It’s critically important as a message, [and] I realize that I’m speaking to a vast majority … of folks out here at NIH [who] know that wearing this mask over the next year here can save lives, a significant number of lives.”
The Democrats’ mask obsession received a big boost this week after the CDC called for all Americans to wear TWO masks, an idea that was introduced by Dr. Fauci two weeks ago during an appearance on NBC’s TODAY show.
Biden has also ordered the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to enforce the mandatory wearing of masks on public transportation and has given those who patrol airports sweeping authority to enforce it, including steep fines.
COVID has allowed Democrats to unleash their inner fascist and to weaponize it to consolidate their power with the masks being adopted as a potent political talisman.
