Americans are getting back to life as usual after a brutal 15 months of oppressive restrictions and mask mandates.
Family members are hugging again and friends are gathering together to dine at their favorite establishments and catch up on life.
But just when we thought we could finally breathe (literally) a sigh of relief, this major city is bringing back the indoor mask mandate – even if you’re vaccinated.
So what city would be crazy enough to force vaccinated people to wear masks indoors?
Ahh yes, good ol’ LA.
Of course, crazy California just can’t help themselves.
Taking yet another shot at small businesses, LA’s public health team believes that forcing businesses to make sure patrons are masked up is a priority this summer.
Sadly, many small businesses have already shut down thanks to COVID-19.
And of those that are left, they’re barely holding on due to a massive loss of income from previous lockdowns.
Announcing their latest mandate, LA Public Health tweeted:
“Wearing a mask indoors with others reduces the risk of both getting & transmitting the virus. We’re requiring masking for everyone while indoors at public settings & businesses, regardless of vaccination status so that we can stop the increased level of transmission we’re seeing.”
So much for the massive PUSH to get Americans vaccinated with promises of free beer or free flights for an entire year…
… so one could finally be “mask free.”
Of course, forcing people to wear masks is all theater.
We all know making people wear masks – ESPECIALLY those who have already sucked it up and taken the vaccine – isn’t going to make anyone safer.
But politicians in California just love to terrorize their own people.
It’s no wonder 3 of the top 10 most miserable cities in the entire country are located in California.
And of course, leftist politicians like Governor Newsom just love to force mandates onto others… while not following their own rules.
During an interview with The New York Times, Barbara Ferrer, who is Los Angeles County’s public health director, even went so far as to say that while she “hoped” they wouldn’t have to shut down the city again – it wasn’t off the table.
The New York Times reported:
“We can’t definitively take anything off the table. But there would have to be extraordinary circumstances.
More likely, we’d work with venues on requiring folks to either get tested or show vaccination.”
Ahh. And there it is.
Just like New York’s “Excelsior Pass” – Los Angeles is hinting at doing the same thing.
Proud American Traveler warned the day was coming when free Americans would have to show proof of vaccination in order to participate in normal events.
And here we are.
But really, what incentive is there to get vaccinated if folks will still be forced to wear a mask?
It’s absolute madness.
Bureaucrats still don’t get the concept that tyranny never works.
So you can bet every freedom lovin’ American I know will skip Cali this summer and spend their money at places where their freedom is actually welcomed.
