Biden Rips Republicans For Not Wearing Masks During Capitol ChaosJanuary 16, 2021
Joe Biden got a jump on his demand that all Americans submit to wearing masks by blasting Republican members of Congress who neglected to put on the face diapers during the chaos at the Capitol.
Good old Joe from Scranton who will formally be installed into the presidency in five days in a heavily militarized D.C. that resembles the capital of a third world banana republic more than the USA laid into the GOP lawmakers.
“What the hell is the matter with them? It’s time to grow up,” said Biden in remarks delivered as he announced his plans to mobilize FEMA and the National Guard to administer vaccinations to Americans in the coming months.
Biden has insisted that wearing the masks isn't a partisan issue but the increasingly harsh tones from Democrats including the insane claim by "Squad" member Ayanna Pressley that those who do not do so are engaging in biological warfare is proof that is not the case.
One of our 100-day challenges is to mask up everyone. The day we're inaugurated, I'm gonna ask you to mask up for the next 100 days. This is not a political issue. And I will issue an executive order to require masks where I have the authority to do that-- in federal worker-- for federal workers, in federal property, on interstate travel like trains and planes.
We'll also be working with mayors and governors in red states and blue states and require masks-- and ask them to require masking up in their cities in their states. Look, I hope we now know this is not a political issue. This is about saving lives.
I know it's become a partisan issue. But what a stupid, stupid thing for it to happen. This is a patriotic act. We're asking you. We're in a war with this virus, and experts say and have shown that wearing a mask from now until April will save as many as 50,000 lives.
Quite frankly, it was shocking to see members of the Congress, while the Capitol was under siege by a deadly mob of thugs, refusing to wear a mask while they were in secure locations. I'm so proud of my Congressman right here in the state of Delaware, Lisa Blunt Rochester, trying to hand out masks while people were lying on the floor, huddled up, and her Republican colleagues refusing to put them on. What the hell's the matter with them?
It's time to grow up. Result? At least four members of Congress today, and including a cancer survivor, now have COVID-19 who were in those rooms. For God's sake, wear a mask, if not for yourself, for your loved ones, for your country.

Biden followed through on his promise that once he has been inaugurated that he will "ask" all Americans to submit to wearing the masks for his first 100 days although his top medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that it would likely be longer than that.
In less than one year, America has been transformed into something that is no longer recognizable with 25,000 armed troops in the nation's capital, new laws coming that will designate Trump supporters as domestic terrorists, and chilling social media censorship enforced by a brutal corporate cancel culture.
The dictatorship of the mask is not going away anytime soon, if ever.
