“Wear a damn mask.” “Wear a f**king mask.” “Just wear your G-damn mask.” A lot of people have been told this for a while now from a variety of Left-wing lunatics who view “science” as gospel and “scientists” as prophets. From celebrities to regular social media idiots, we’ve been, often crudely, ordered to wear our masks.
Which, by the way, the more I’m told to ”wear your f**king mask,” the greater an inclination I have to tell that person to go f**k themselves. And I’m not usually one to curse at people in such a way, even online. That’s how infuriating these people are, that they have such a superiority complex that they believe they have any sort of right to tell people what to do. Not surprising that Biden and other Democrats plan/have planned to institute unconstitutional mask mandates: these people can’t help but abuse the power that they have.
Well, despite all the “science” and “evidence” surrounding the wearing of masks, at least when it comes to surgical masks (which are generally less effective than N95 masks), a recent Danish study has discovered that the rate of infection is about the same for a group which wore surgical masks and a group which did not wear surgical masks (or any masks).
Interestingly enough, The New York Times is reporting on this study, though they try their best to discredit it to some extent (which is odd because, again, they are reporting it, so why report on it if they don’t agree with it? And don’t tell me that it’s because they are a news source, because their behavior over the last four years, at least, runs contrary to that idea).
According to The NYT: “A new study, the first of its kind, is likely to inflame the controversy. Researchers in Denmark reported on Wednesday that surgical masks did not protect the wearers against infection with the coronavirus in a large randomized clinical trial.”
“The study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, did not contradict growing evidence that masks can prevent transmission of the virus from wearer to others. But the conclusion is at odds with the view that masks also protect the wearers – a position endorsed last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention…”
“About 4,860 participants completed the study. The researchers had hoped that masks would cut the infection rate by half among wearers. Instead, 42 people in the mask group, or 1.8 percent, got infected, compared with 53 in the unmasked group, or 2.1 percent. The difference was not statistically significant.”
Now, a raging liberal might argue “but there is a noticeable difference here of 0.3%, which may not be a lot, but it’s something and every little bit helps!” Thing about that is, like the NYT pointed out, it’s statistically insignificant.
That 0.3%, I’m willing to bet, is well within the margin of error for the study. Part of the scientific method is to try and repeat the results, which I’m certain plenty of researchers would try to do. It could be that less people in the non-mask group get infected or it could also be that even more get infected. What I’m saying here is that wearing a mask, even a surgical one, which is generally more effective than regular cloth masks (obviously, since they are used during surgery) which most people tend to wear, does not offer any significant protection as opposed to not wearing a mask at all.
And insultingly, the NYT quoted a researcher in Norway who said that the study showed “there might be a symbolic effect” in wearing masks, even while she is persuaded by the study that “the effect of wearing a mask does not substantially reduce risk” for the wearers.
Are you kidding me? This is about symbolism now? What place does symbolism have in science? What place does how people feel about something have in science? I FEEL like my mask is going to work, so I’m encouraged to wear it even though it won’t?
I’m told by jackasses on Twitter to “wear my damn mask” not because it will work but because it will make THEM feel good, or it should make ME FEEL good? Biden and other Democrats want to FORCE ME to wear a mask, not because there is evidence that it works, but because of FEELINGS?!
Why am I surprised? Of course these people inject non-scientific garbage into science. We’ve seen, for a very long time now, how they do this. They scare children half to death about a climate “crisis” which isn’t actually a crisis and which isn’t man-made because of “feelings” (and money and power for a select few, of course). They redefine words and erase biological facts to make transgender people “feel” good and “natural” even though they are definitely not natural nor scientific.
So for them to make a religion which worships the idol of a mask, and passing that off as science, should not be so surprising.
For crying out loud, researchers from MIT and UCSF were going to publish a study about the effectiveness of masks in over a thousand counties which “saw” a decrease in hospitalizations after mask mandates were put into place, until cases began to spike (even despite those mandates), and those researchers pulled that study but did not see the connection between what they were trying to say and the reality that no, mask mandates don’t work. These are supposed “scientists” who, instead of looking at the new data (that masks don’t work and mask mandates are ineffective) and making adjustments to their hypothesis (or outright scrapping them), are still convinced that masks do work, despite the evidence that they don’t, and will seek to publish their study whenever it is more opportune.
The science of the Left is not science at all. It is a religion which disguises its zeal with “facts” and “evidence.” If you deny the science of the Left, you are deemed a science-denier and an anti-science ignoramus who must be re-educated (and trust me, given the opportunity, they will go this direction because Leftists always do this).
The “scientists” are their prophets, the “evidence” is their gospel, the masks are their idol (at least until it’s replaced with imagery of the planet or mother nature or something), and the Democrats are their Pope who will lead this religion by force and shove it down everyone’s throats.
Any studies which go against the grain are considered heresy, and even if reported by The NYT, they receive the treatment of “take it with a grain of salt”, while studies which show the “approved” message are to be believed entirely and without question. Scientists who factually push back against man-made climate change, or the idea of infinite genders, or any such Leftist principle, are treated as heretics and punished for their acts.
FYI, that study, while fairly recent, is still nearly a month old now and was rejected by multiple publications. Again, it is treated as heresy and it must be censored because it does not adhere to the approved message of the far-Left, which seeks control over facts when it comes to dealing with the China virus.
It is outright infuriating that the Left has successfully hijacked the realm of science and uses it with impunity to spread Leftist ideals.
Here’s hoping that we somehow manage to reverse course on this and will eventually utterly crush the Left in every single manner.
