Lancaster Online Keeps Demanding Everyone Wear Masks – They Are Wrong

By Jonathan Baum 134 comments

The Karens on the editorial board of Lancaster Online keep ordering Lancastrians to wear masks.

Here’s one from the board from yesterday: Enough with the face mask culture war. Masks protect against COVID-19, so please wear one. Do you detect the arrogance? “Enough!, you ignorant MAGA Hat people, We know what’s best for you!”

Here’s one from a week ago, again from the editorial board: Requiring us to wear masks to the grocery store is not tyranny.

But the fact is they are dead wrong on this, as is most of the mainstream media, and about the whole COVID experience, from start to finish.

The main reason people don’t need masks is because COVID is not nearly as dangerous as initially thought. The only people at risk are the old and sick – THEY should protect themselves – everyone else should just go about their life as normal.

From the World Health Organization:

  • If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19.
  • Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
  • Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.

We have been living through a mass panic – mostly thanks to our effeminate, chicken-little media. In hindsight, the whole lockdown was unnecessary. There is a ton of reporting about this in the alternative media. I recommend Lewrockwell.com for a good place to find it.

Furthermore there is plenty of science saying masks don’t help, and in fact, if you have respiratory problems, they are a danger to your health.

Here’s an excellent video which explains the science in terms even the pearl clutchers on the LNP editorial board can grasp.

So don’t wear masks. Walk into stores without them, and challenge people who ask you to wear them. Legally, you cannot be denied service at stores that sell food or pharmacy products. So refuse to wear them there.

Enough with the nonsense.

It’s not about “culture wars” LNP, it’s about common sense.
