Biden Issues Alarming Demand to Americans: 'Get Vaccinated or Wear a Mask Until You Do'

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Biden Issues Alarming Demand to Americans: 'Get Vaccinated or Wear a Mask Until You Do'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

I mention this not because I want people to follow my example — like every other American, you should be free to weigh the evidence and make your own choice — but instead to head off the errant email or Twitter comment accusing me of being the kind of person who goes into a Stop & Shop and starts screeching at anyone with a facial covering, liberally using the word “sheeple” in my rant. My general feeling is that it’s more likely than not masks work at some level.

Thus, I’m confident I’m not coming from a place of anti-masking when I note Joe Biden’s messaging on facial coverings, which was already being served with a soupçon of dystopia, has now gone full-on totalitarian propaganda.

The transformation has been a steady one. Take this tweet from the campaign, which sounds suspiciously like it could be lifted from a wartime propaganda poster:

Yessir! It’s not quite “Loose Lips Might Sink Ships” or “Know Your Place, Shut Your Face,” but this was the kind of messaging the Biden camp thought would win over recalcitrant non-maskers.

That apparently didn’t work, since some Americans persisted in not doing what they were told. Well, now things have changed, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new masking guidelines in the wake of increased COVID-19 vaccination and the president is taking a much lighter tone about all of this.
