Masks Required by Government Are Not Protecting Americans
Graham Ledger: Page Six now, the battle against phony mask mandates. These blue state governors are sitting back in their mansions right now, having the times of their lives. These are radicals who hate the Constitution are really enjoying ordering their people around in their states. You can't do this, and you can't do that, oh, but you must wear a face-covering despite all the volumes of scientific data that repeatedly show that mask-wearing does zero to mitigate the spread of airborne viruses. Joining me now, the founder of the American Truth Project and Daily Ledger contributor, Barry Nussbaum. Barry, if you're keeping score at home, we've had probably a dozen scientists on this program, epidemiologists who are all telling us the same thing, that the masks do nothing to mitigate the spread of an airborne virus. Whether you are sick or somebody else is sick because we're talking about tiny, tiny particles that can, number one, permeate the mask. And number two, if they lodge on the mask, people touch them, of course, to take them off. They adjust them constantly. You see people adjusting constantly. And so what you're doing is you're just transmitting a disease or other diseases in other forms. You're doing it by hand or by taking the mask off and putting the mask on a table or what have you. This is just crazy stuff.
Barry Nussbaum: You make a very good point, and there's really two strong arguments against the masks. Number one, Graham, they do not prevent you from getting sick. I want to make that very clear in 50-foot letters. It doesn't screen viruses. As you said, they're microscopic in size. It will prevent you from sneezing on somebody at Home Depot probably, but that's it. The more important point is there's a lot of work out there being done to show that wearing a mask for extended periods of time lowers the oxygen content in your blood. Therefore, lowering your immune response, and therefore making you more susceptible not only to COVID 19 but a plethora of other illnesses. Masks don't work. I think, honestly, this is about control and the ability of governors that don't think about your rights. They are demonstrating that they can control you by fiat. And what are you going to do about it?
Graham Ledger: Is criminal, Barry. You talked about Home Depot. I see these parents running around with their kids in Home Depot, and they have masks on. These children should not be breathing this is this highly toxic air because let's face it, as you pointed out, it restricts your ability to intake oxygen and keeps the carbon dioxide, around that mask and all kinds of other kinds of germs. It's not healthy, and it shouldn't be done. One more aspect of this Barry that I think is maybe even more important that a lot of people talk about is the symbolism of wearing a mask, especially when we are in these racially charged times. Think about it. Think about being forced to cover your mouth, cover your ability to speak, cover your First Amendment rights. I was ordering food the other day, and I was trying to talk to the clerk. I couldn't understand what he was saying. He was muzzled.
Barry Nussbaum: I think that was a really, really profound, weird but bizarre occurrence going on that I don't know why anyone doesn't talk about it 24/7, which is, there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people in the streets for the past two weeks with social distancing somewhere between two inches and four inches. There's hugging, high fiving, looting, and nobody said anything about COVID 19. Nobody mentioned the health risks. And now that the rioting has died down. Oh, COVID came back. I thought COVID was cured two weeks ago. But because it was OK to have, what, several million people in the street have disregarding every single warning. And now it comes back because Trump wants to have a rally or the governors are concerned they're losing control of their people.
Graham Ledger: It's herd immunity. They're spreading herd immunity. I am actually applauding these people. That the topper for me, though, Barry, was this week when a report came out, some study said, hey, couples need to wear a mask when they're having sex. Sorry, but that is it. Barry thanks.
