Skip to comments.Dan Crenshaw Tweets Stunning Revelation on New CDC Mask Guidelines
Posted on 07/28/2021 8:37:07 PM PDT by lightman
On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced a new mask guideline for students, teachers, and staff in K-12 to wear masks regardless of vaccination status, as well as in certain indoor settings, again, also regardless of vaccination status. The move was met with swift criticism, especially and including from former President Donald Trump. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), though, takes issue with the data used to justify the new guidelines.
The excerpt Rep. Crenshaw references comes from Andrew Joseph's article published by STAT, "CDC Again Recommends Indoor Masking, Even for Some Vaccinated People."
The excerpt in question reads:
An administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told STAT that health experts do not have studies proving that fully vaccinated people are transmitting the virus. Rather, the official said, the updated guidance is based on studies showing that vaccinated people who contract the Delta variant have similarly high levels of virus in their airways, which suggested that they may be infectious to others. With other variants, vaccinated people had substantially lower levels of virus in their noses and throats compared to unvaccinated people.
Joseph also wrote:
The CDC says breakthrough cases still appear to be rare given how many people have been vaccinated, and the vast majority of infections are asymptomatic or mild. It’s also thought that because so many of those cases are so tame, many go undetected. However, many experts argue that breakthrough infections that cause no symptoms shouldn’t really be considered as cases. Mild or asymptomatic breakthrough infections are signs that the vaccines — whose top aim is to stave off death and severe illness — are doing their job, experts stress.
Guidelines on masks have been met with particular drama in the U.S. House of Representatives, after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reimposed a mask mandate on the House floor.
As Carson covered, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) gave a particularly impassioned floor speech about the absurdity of the mask mandate, especially while illegal immigrants testing positive continue to come to this country via the southern border.
On Wednesday, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) was trending on Twitter after the congressman used his time to call out House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for being "immature" and using "cheap political points" when it comes to McCarthy's opposition of mask mandate.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw @RepDanCrenshaw · Jul 28, 2021 Here’s the truth America:
The “game changer” data the CDC used for the mask mandate is from a single study from India.
The study was rejected in peer review. But CDC used it anyway. Remember what I said about public health officials losing our trust?
It gets worse. Rep. Dan Crenshaw @RepDanCrenshaw The study that influenced this decision? It followed healthcare workers who were vaccinated with a vaccine NOT EVEN APPROVED IN THE U.S.
That’s right. So they’re not even using a comparable case study that can be applied to vaccinated Americans.
“…The “game changer” data the CDC used for the mask mandate is from a single study from India.
The study was rejected in peer review. But CDC used it anyway. Remember what I said about public health officials losing our trust?…”
“Rejected in peer review” = NOT A LADLE OF WARM PISS!
The mask policy is pure political theater and a means of getting the American people accustomed to submitting to oppression.
Not WORTH A LADLE….
Good for Crenshaw (and, MTG, and Rep Chip Roy) to be calling this absurdity out.
I’ve already heard remarks from crenshaw about the 2nd amendment. As, far as I am concerned he is a two-faced scumbag. I don’t trust him one little bit! He is NOT a freind, he is a villain.
LINK TO REJECTED STUDY?
Dan Crenshaw is a hardcore cuckservative who wants to take guns away. He’s a snake.
How did Tucker Carlson refer to the CDC? Something like the Center for Disinformation and Confusion.
Wear a Trump Won mask and Nancy will have to act
You OBVIOUSLY know this scumbag just as I do. I Don’t care what lies come out of his mouth. I ALREADY know who and what he is!
I’ve got a cellar that I can fight snakes out of with a hoe in bad weather. I have more respect for an “actual” snake than this scumbag. If I were to meet him dying of thirst... I wouldn’t pee in his mouth to keep him going.
