Biden Says ‘Rule Is Simple”: Get Vaccinated or Wear a Mask Until You Do

I am absolutely sure some behavioral scientist(s) came up with this simple but brilliant diabolical plan. This policy does so much harm simultaneously. Those who comply by getting the jab are granted the new freedom to breathe uninhibited by a mask. Those who refuse to take the experimental gene therapy are supposed to continue wearing the mask. The mask has now been transformed into a big “scarlet letter” shaming mechanism. If the the unvaccinated refuse, it serves to further isolate the forced/pressured mask wearers, making them feel even more isolated. The only way out of the trap is for everyone to refuse the mask. Then policymakers can say that the “cheaters” out are harming society, so we need some sort of verification system….digital vaccine passports. Then the unvaccinated who refuse to wear the mask are further shamed as lying cheaters who are hurting society.
