Since Nancy Pelosi assumed her role as the Speaker of the House in 2018, she’s run the House like a full-on tyrant.
But her latest act goes too far.
Because Nancy Pelosi just made a new rule to silence her political opponents that will leave your jaw on the floor.
Recently, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that all Representatives in the House will be required to wear a mask at all times with no exceptions.
This includes while a member of the House is speaking.
If anyone dares to disobey Nancy Pelosi’s arbitrary mask mandate, they will no longer be recognized in the chamber.
“The chair will take this occasion to update her announcement of July 29 and November 13 – excuse me, 18, concerning the wearing of masks in the Hall of the House during the coronavirus pandemic. The chair wishes to, again, emphasize the importance of safe practices during House proceedings. Accordingly, masks will now be required at all times in the Hall of the House, without exception, including while members are under recognition. The chair would reiterate that this is a matter of order and decorum in the chamber under Clause 2 of Rule I. To be clear, members will not be recognized unless they are wearing a mask and recognition will be withdrawn if they remove the mask while speaking,” Pelosi thundered.
The Left has been championing mask mandates all across the country as one of the primary ways to fend off the coronavirus.
However, there is little evidence for the effectiveness of mask mandates anywhere they have been used.
According to the scientists who do support mask mandates, they require a nearly 100% adoption rate to be useful at all.
Even then, there is no agreement within the scientific community that masks are going to keep the virus at bay – as much as the Left will try to argue that there is.
It was just earlier this year when the so-called “experts” told Americans not to wear masks.
There’s two real motives behind this move from Nancy Pelosi.
First, she wants to silence conservatives who would champion the personal choice and freedom to wear a mask or to not wear a mask.
So by refusing to recognize Republican Representatives in the chamber who exercise that choice, she’s doing exactly that.
Secondly, this is another way for her to tighten her iron grip on the House of Representatives – almost as a “demonstration” for anyone who dares defy her.
