When I found out that the Super Bowl was being held in Los Angeles, my first thought was: what are they going to do with their mask mandates?
The now infamous draconian Covid restrictions imposed in California by one of the figureheads behind the lockdown hysteria, Gov. Gavin Newsom, have sparked resistance and protests across the state.
Many blue states, such as California and New York, have become the epitome of the most extreme measures introduced in our country.
In both states, there is a mass exodus of citizens fleeing for the freedom of the red states.
Now, in many cases, while liberal governors and local officials have tried to relax some Covid rules, they have continued to double down on others.
California officials announced on Monday that they are maintaining mandatory school masks for at least another two weeks, even after indoor mask requirements for vaccinated adults were lifted.
These latest changes are happening despite science proving time and time again that children are the least affected by Covid-19.
Only adults matter.
The official rule was that all spectators were required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. Of course, no one wore masks. (Top) Actress Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres at the Super Bowl
There is a photo that has since gone viral that was taken by Arkansas Senate candidate Jake Beckett (above).
Nowhere was Covid’s irrational politics more evident than at the Super Bowl.
The official rule was that all spectators were required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. Of course, no one wore masks.
There was also a loophole for those who “actively eat or drink” although I’m pretty sure Covid can still be spread when you chew.
Prince Harry seems to have taken full advantage of this clause.
In the stands, Harry wore a mask, sitting next to his cousin Princess Eugenie, but backstage, meeting Cedric the Entertainer and having a drink, he removed his mask.
There is another photo that has since gone viral, tweeted by Arkansas Senate candidate Jake Beckett.
In the picture, comedian Ellen DeGeneres takes a selfie at the Super Bowl without a mask, surrounded by people in a large arena.
Next to an unmasked image of Ellen is an image of a uniformed and masked National Guard soldier on the street.
The infamous slogan “Rules for you, not for me” was broadcast live to America’s largest television audience.
Was it allowed in the Super Bowl because we collectively accepted – for all intents and purposes – that we would have to live with Covid and not completely turn every aspect of our lives upside down because of it?
Or was the enforcement of the mask mandate less harsh because so many powerful people and celebrities were in attendance?
Is this an implicit admission that if they don’t live by their own rules, then we won’t have to?
My favorite new piece of news about celebrity double standards is the recent announcement that you don’t need to be vaccinated to attend the Oscars.
This seems to confirm suspicions that there are many more unvaccinated hypocrites in Hollywood.
Clearly, unvaccinated celebrities are enough to affect the estimated attendance of their awards ceremony.
But again, the bottom line is important.

In Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser just announced that she is ending the city’s official mandate to wear masks and vaccines, but children are still required to wear masks in schools starting at the age of two.
And by March, a new council bill requiring students to get vaccinated will come into effect.
Let’s make this crystal clear: Celebrities don’t have to wear masks at the Super Bowl or show proof of vaccination to go to the Academy Awards, but our kids are at far less risk! – you will have to wear face masks and get vaccinated to be well-mannered.
All this begs the question, what is the point of all this?
These laws and regulations are illogical, arbitrary and completely politicized.
Newsom acknowledged that teacher unions in his state are influencing his decision to keep children wearing masks in schools.
“They just asked for a little more time and I think that’s responsible and I respect that,” he said.
If I drive ten minutes across the bridge into Washington, D.C., there will be completely different rules than in the state of Virginia.
Nothing in this is “following science”.
Much has been made of the fact that blue state governors have announced their recent policy reversal, but it appears to have been done by those who spend money and vote – adults, not children.
I don’t understand why these politicians in charge of the blue states keep doubling down on these rules for children, continuing to hurt the most vulnerable in our population who cannot defend themselves and will certainly feel the most long-term damage.
I can go to a concert, to the gym, to a crowded bar and restaurant without a mask, but does a two-year-old have to spend hours in class wearing a mask every day?
Go to hell all of you.
So why don’t we all collectively come together and agree to live in reality.

How can you justify something that has turned into an extreme health theater and has done nothing to “stop the spread” or prevent people from getting infected with Covid.
To qualify for the Super Bowl, you had to either show proof of vaccination or be tested 48 hours before the scheduled time.
Within 48 hours of testing a person, you can contract Covid and bring them to the event.
The rules are completely devoid of any logic.
There is no reasonable person who could watch the Super Bowl on Sunday and not come to the conclusion that we are now living with Covid-19 and everything has returned to the normal life that we are all capable of experiencing after so many collective traumas. last few years.
To admit that you are against a return to normal life is to admit that you no longer live in reality.
So, instead of shaming my Hollywood and liberal friends, why don’t we ask them to finally join the rest of us and live as we are instead of pretending?
As another old saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them.
