A MSNBC medical contributor called for the wearing of face masks to be made mandatory in the United States, claiming that anything otherwise would represent a threat to public safety.
Dr. Vin Gupta made the dramatic, authoritarian appeal on a Monday morning segment on the network. Watch here:
MSNBC’s Dr. Vin Gupta: “We should make masks mandatory in public. Just like we ban indoor smoking, because you know what? You shouldn’t have to breathe somebody else’s secondhand smoke. I shouldn’t have to breathe exhaled Covid-19 in somebody’s breath.” pic.twitter.com/9N61Pjf2uw

“We should institute mandatory masks in public when you can’t guarantee social distancing. That means retail stores, that means public transportation, that means workplaces… That’s absolutely where we should be headed. Makes no sense why we’re not already there, people are flouting the rules…”
Gupta’s appeal to authoritarianism is almost certainly a doomed project. While many businesses and institutions have enacted rules requiring the use of a face mask to enter their property, it’s all but impossible to imagine a system where law enforcement mandates the wearing of face masks by the general public.
Ohio Republican Governor Mike DeWine already rescinded an executive order mandating the wearing of facemasks inside businesses, stating the onerous requirement was a “bridge too far.”
A more efficient public health strategy would be to strongly encourage people to maintain social distancing practices, and wear face masks if they feel so inclined. Many Americans simply aren’t going to accept a paradigm in which we treat our neighbors as latent biothreats on an infinite, rolling basis.
Nobel Prize Winning Professor Explains How ‘Scientists Have Failed’ Throughout COVID-19 Pandemic
Stanford Professor Michael Levitt is calling out the so-called experts.
University of Stanford structural biology professor Michael Levitt is one of the few academics who has demonstrated the courage to call out COVID-19 hysteria from the start, and he is blasting the scientific community for continuing to fail the public.
“People are insisting on refereed reports. No one wants to share anything. The scientists are more panicked and scared of the reality than anybody else,” Levitt said.
“The august organizations, like Lindau, the Royal Society, the National Academy of Science, have been totally silent. I am really disappointed. This has got nothing to do with politics. As a group, scientists have failed the younger generation,” he added.
Levitt is frustrated by the lack of inquiry that has taken place within the scientific community regarding COVID-19, and how the fear propaganda was pushed unanimously at the behest of institutional power.
“There should have been a committee formed…in the middle of February when this was coming down the road, and we should have discussed this. Instead, we let economics and politics dedicate the science, and, for me, the worst opposition I got was from very, very prominent scientists who were so scared that the non-scientists would break quarantine and infect them,” he said.
“It was total panic, and the fact is that all the science we were hearing, for example, from organizations like the World Health Organization, was wrong… This has been a disgraceful situation for science,” Levitt added.
Levitt’s early predictions that COVID-19 would likely be little more than a bad strain of the flu have come to pass. For telling the truth and refusing to capitulate to mass hysteria, he was abused by his critics, who still refuse to give him the credit he deserves for being right all along.
“So, I think if he had, initially, just a few scientists talking to each other on Zoom, not about the opinions but about the data. What is the population infection ratio? What is the severity? Does this thing grow exponentially? There were some very, very simple questions, and it’s true that the epidemiologists were always saying that we’re not epidemiologists, but the fact is that viral cases and deaths follow a time trajectory, and I think physicists and theoretical chemists, who understand trajectories, are way better qualified,” he explained.
“You know, the level of stupidity that’s been going on here has been amazing… Even in many places, the politics has infected the scientists, certainly in the USA,” Levitt added.
Levitt’s remarks can be viewed here:
On the "same as bad flu" – with a population fatality rate approx 0.04 to 0.05% (or ~500 in a million people) over the season – it is actually pretty much the de facto impact of a bad flu.
Argument against is: "the lockdown magicks kept it low" – but this is not evidence-based… pic.twitter.com/Z5Q0eO81lA

Big League Politics has reported on how COVID-19 fear is being used for a massive vaccine push as well as the normalization of Orwellian technologies in day-to-day life. Perhaps this cabal of scientists was not stupid after all, sensing that the coronavirus pandemic could be exploited in order to circumvent the rule of law and push society close to technocracy.
