Months before Joe Biden’s signed his COVID mask mandate that ordered masks be worn in all Federal buildings. North Dakota’s Republican Gov. Doug Burgum imposed a statewide COVID mask mandate.
North Dakota Lawmaker Calls Unconstitutional COVID Mask Mandate “Diabolical Silliness”
The state’s lower chamber voted 50-44 Monday to prohibit state and local governments, schools, and businesses from ordering mask mandates amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Grand Forks Herald reported.
Rep. Jeff Hoverson, the bill’s sponsor, has characterized the mask requirements as “diabolical silliness” will now head to the Senate for ratification.
Hoverson told the Prairie Public Press:
“The mask is a part of a larger apparatus of a movement of unelected, wealthy bureaucrats, who are robbing our freedoms and perpetuating lies,”
Meanwhile, Rep. Jason Dockter argued that a ban on masks would take away control from local governments.
“If people wanted to decide to have a mask mandate, they should have that choice, they should also have the choice not to mandate.”
The potential legislation comes after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum imposed a statewide mask mandate in November.
Burgum said at the time:
“Since the beginning, we’ve taken a data-driven approach to our pandemic response, focusing on saving lives and livelihoods.
Right now, the data demands a higher level of mitigation efforts to reverse these dangerous trends, to slow the spread of this virus, and to avoid the need for economic shutdowns.”
Of course, Democrats passing their Unconstitutional COVID Mask Mandate latch on to the skirt of science.
But they always seem to forget how many lives were lost because scientists either blatantly lied. Or wanted to appear on a network news program that before having a scientifically confirmed answer, they spread what we now know to be disinformation.
The best example of this comes from the Democrats ‘Saintly’ Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In March 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci gave two high-profile interviews.
Fauci’s exact words from his March 8 interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”:
FAUCI: The masks are important for someone who’s infected to prevent them from infecting someone else. Right now in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks.
HOST: You’re sure of this? Because people are listening really closely to this.
FAUCI: Right. There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.
Not until JUNE, 3 months after blatantly lying, did Dr. Anthony Fauci fess up and inform everyone that his statement in March was really an untrue statement and that he made it with the intent to deceive.
In an interview with The Street when asked why we were not told to wear masks earlier Fauci gave his reason for lying:
“We were concerned that it was at a time that personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply,”
So Fauci took it upon himself to blatantly lie because in his mind he believed the American people were too immature and/or narcissistic to accept if Fauci had said something such as:
‘Please make your own face mask, or wash your current one, because America is in short supply of N95 masks and we need all of them for our Front line healthcare workers’
Of course, that begs the question, during the three-month period between telling his lie and finally telling the truth…
How many Americans died because they believed Dr. Anthony Fauci telling them they didn’t need to wear a mask?
So when I hear Democrats screeching ‘Believe in the Science’ and/or “We must do what the experts are saying”
It comes down to once you lie to me, whether you believe you were doing it for righteousness reasons or not. How can I believe you now?
Also, this wasn’t the only time Fauci admitting to lying.
As TuskerDaily reported in a New York Times article published on 12-24-20 Fauci admitted to“quietly shifting“ the percentage of what he other health officials were claiming that America needed to achieve to reach “herd immunity.”
