Let's talk about the Houston mayor.
The same guy who marched through the streets with thousands of anti-police activists now wants the police to ticket people for not wearing masks.
Democrat Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says anyone who doesn't wear a mask within the city limits will be subject to a $250 fine.
We're not really sure how he's going to enforce this: local police and firefighter union leaders have already publicly said they don't have the time or the resources to enforce a mandatory mask mandate, but Mayor Turner is convinced that threatening people is a great way to get results.
Turner asked residents to not “get mad” at police officers, asserting, “It’s all about public health and driving our numbers down.”
As we highlighted yesterday, Dr. Deborah Birx suggested that Americans should wear masks inside their own homes to protect elderly loved ones from coronavirus.
The efficacy of masks is far from the settled science that the mainstream media purports it to be, with the Netherlands refusing to enforce the wearing of masks, while health authorities in Sweden have described them as “pointless.”
