    Mask Rebellion...On The Floor of the US House!

    Mask Rebellion...On The Floor of the US House!
    written by daniel mcadams - may 18, 2021

    Leave it to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) to take a stand for freedom and liberty! In open defiance of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) rule imposing a fine of $500 (second offense $2,500) for any Member appearing on the House Floor without a face mask, Rep. Massie has organized a maskless protest...right on the Floor of the House of Representatives!

    As Rep. Massie Tweeted during a series of votes, where he and a group of Members could clearly be seen up front without face masks, at least ten other Members have joined his mini-rebellion right in front of the Speaker's podium. Maskless, chatting up, fearless. Just daring Pelosi to strike back.

    Massie announced his planned protest earlier today via Twitter:

    @RepThomasMassie

    We’ve had enough. We are refusing to wear our masks on the floor during this vote in spite of Pelosi’s threat to take $500 from each of us.

    Her rule is not based on science. All you need to know is the mask rule has only ever applied to members when they can be seen on TV !
    RPI received word from a contact in one of the protesting Member's offices that the maskless Members had received a verbal warning - which they have ignored. It remains unclear whether a written warning or a fine will follow.

    In February, Texas Republican Louis Gohmert was fined $5,000 for using the restroom without passing through new metal detectors Pelosi had installed in the wake of the January 6th "insurrection."

    On Friday, 14 May, the CDC did a U-turn on its previous policy that vaccinated people should still wear masks indoors and outdoors, stating that the vaccinated could henceforth emerge from their masks in both settings.

    Other Republican lawmakers celebrated the CDC's about-face on masks, declaring "Freedom!" - but it was Massie (and allies) today who put that sentiment into action by openly defying Pelosi's adherence to the previous CDC guideline.

    Now that "the science" has determined that mask-wearing is no longer necessary, can we start claiming that Pelosi and the Democrats are "anti-science"?

    So, what, 11? 12? Maybe one or two more than that? Out of 435.

    Sounds like Massie is having about as much luck stirring rebellion up there as those of us who spent the entire Spring aand Summer last year attempting to encorage and organize real resistance around here.

    freedom!

    Huzzah!

    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    "Science" had proved over and over again that non sealing, non pressurized, cloth or fiber face masks were useless in controlling the spread of viral respiratory illness.

    It was never about "science".

    It was about ridiculous compliance theater.

    It is indeed frustrating. But those others of the 435 are lost causes, anyway.

    Anything that promotes greater visibility and currency for defiant non-compliance is to be appreciated.

    Even symbolic gestures are better than nothing at all.

    You gotta start somewhere. Several blacks before Rosa Parks refused to give up their seats before she was arrested. Then Rosa refused and was arrested. Then the entire black population of Montgomery Alabama refused to ride on segregated busses.

    A classic example:

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to jmdrake again.

    Even if we wish (as I certainly do) that Massie et al. had made just such a stand before the change in CDC guidelines, doing so afterwards still serves a useful purpose. For one thing, it makes mock of Pelosi et al. and highlights their hypocrisy, given their prior use of The ScienceTM to justify their impositions - an excuse their scientism is no longer giving them. (One should never pass up an opportunity to hoist one's enemies on their own petard, even as one may wish that the petard in question had been defused long before.)

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    This is great and all, but why wasn't this done during the entirely of last year?

    He should have been more symbolic and ripped the letter up like she did with Trump's SOTU speech last year.

    Well, the Floor of the House is part of the Capitol building, after all - so that makes it sacred and holy ground, and therefore worthy of being capitalized.

    So then, would that be the Garbage Can of Congressman Massie?

    Of course not. Massie is a false prophet and a purveyor of libertarian heresies.

    I mean, just look what the damnable apostate did to that page of Holy Writ!

    No - Pelosi has a Garbage Can, but Massie only has a garbage can.

    If Massie can be excommunicated, then maybe his garbage can can be resanctified as a Garbage Can.

    Maybe. But they should probably cleanse it with fire by burning it, just to be sure.

    Massie being elected to congress is probably the most notable and best outcome of the work we all did back in 2008-2012. He's Ron Paul but younger and less rambly. Love to see his popularity ascending at the same time Cheney gets the boot.
