Like a carrot on a stick, Democrats are following the rage of the rest of the United States, and they’re backtracking their COVID-19 mandates and trying to open the country with no mandates as quickly as possible. It’s like a blanket demand that the top leadership in the Democrat party is pushing out for everyone to repeat.
In April 2021, Leana Wen said, “We have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status. Because otherwise, if everything is reopened, then what’s the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine?”
Who’s chasing the carrot now?
While on CNN, after Wen said that the science had changed, she said, ”In this case, I’m not saying I don’t think anyone is saying that no one should ever wear masks. But instead, the responsibility should shift from a government mandate imposed from the state or the local district of the school to an individual responsibility by the family, who can still decide that their child can wear a mask if needed.”
Here’s what’s happened. The Democrat party knows that President Joe Biden has severely messed up, and his support has seriously backfired. Now that the 2022 midterm election is coming up and there’s ample support for Republican candidates, the Democrat party has to change its mandates. They feel like they can trick their constituents into believing that what they were doing was moral and righteous. It’s not. They’re done.
Even Press Secretary Jen Psaki demonizes Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) for stopping mask mandates and praising New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ) for preventing the mask mandates. There’s no actual playbook here. Some Democrats are changing their tune faster than others. They’ll all catch up soon. They’re trying to push this as a slow rollback rather than an overnight change. That way, it seems reasonable and “scientific.”
In response, Geoffrey Miller, Psychology Professor, said, “The polling numbers have changed. The political landscape has changed. That’s why you’re promoting a different propaganda message now. That’s all. If the science itself had changed, we’d see new peer-reviewed studies that indicate the change.”
That leads to the next point. The Department of Homeland Security has created bait and a trap.
In a “Summary of Terrorism Threat to the US Homeland,” DHS said, in part, “The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in US government institutions.”
That means they can silence people who talk about not trusting the government. And with democrats changing their opinion, there’s going to be a lot of talk about not trusting what they say because they’re changing their tune.
There’s an entire circle narrative happening at this very moment, and they’re tricking people into falling for it so they can be silenced before the 2022 midterm election. Those who don’t have a voice won’t speak the truth to the people.
