Nancy Pelosi has run the House of Representatives like a dictator.
It’s why Pelosi is one of the most unpopular figures in American politics.
And now Nancy Pelosi handed down this ultimatum that proved everyone’s worst fear.
On Tuesday, Speaker Pelosi mandated that masks be worn at all times in the House of Representatives, even when a member is speaking from the floor.
Pelosi dictated that if a member of Congress takes off their mask while they are speaking, they will no longer be recognized by the chair.
“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Clause 2 of Rule I. To be clear, members will not be recognized unless they are wearing a mask and recognition will be withdrawn if they remove the mask while speaking,” Pelosi thundered.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 an almost religious belief in the effectiveness of masks despite studies and real world evidence that Americans see every day in rising case counts that masks are marginally effective at best and useless at worst.
Many Americans object to mask mandates as they see it as an issue of personal freedom and individual choice.
Pelosi ordering masks must be worn at all times gets at what is really behind these mandates: the desire of politicians and so called public health “experts” to control every aspect of Americans’ lives.
