On Friday, former vice president Joe Biden made a public relations stop at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer’s manufacturing plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan to push face masks on Americans for another year into the future.
Accompanied by Michigan’s radical Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Biden said that there would be a sufficient supply of the vaccines for all Americans by this summer but that receiving it doesn’t mean that Americans can shuck the masks anytime soon.
“Before you get the shot, and after, if you get the shots, and after, social distancing saves lives, wearing masks saves lives,” he said. “Making sure that you wash your hands with hot water, saves lives.”
“This is not hyperbole, this is not a political statement, this is a reality, the science has demonstrated that,” he added.
“The vaccines are safe,” he continued. “Please, for yourself, your family, your community, this country, take the vaccine when it’s your turn and available.”
Then, Biden tried to make people “feel better” by saying that Dr. Fauci approves…so it “must” be okay.
“Listen to Dr. Fauci. Dr. Facui assured me that the COVID-19 vaccines were safe,” he said.

Only weeks after his installation into the White House, Biden extended his 100-day “mask challenge” into 2022 during a tour of the National Institute Of Health last week.

For those who may have believed that the vaccine will be a way to get their normal lives back, Biden’s comments should serve as a wake-up call that masks and social distancing will be around for as long as the Democrats have power, no matter how “contained” the virus is.
Biden also used his visit to Pfizer in order to promote his economic policies and to whip up support for the Democrats’ massive COVID relief bill that will be chock full of liberal pork completely unrelated to the virus.
Democrats have exploited the unprecedented health crisis to cram through agenda items that would have never withstood scrutiny during normal times by using the Rahm Emanuel maxim of never letting a really good crisis “go to waste”. Having said that, COVID is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them to radically remake America to their liking.
And that includes the politically motivated orders to wear the masks.
