Remember when the CDC credited masks for bringing down “cases” in Arizona?
When they say ridiculous things like this, they give the green light to people who want to blame their neighbors for rises in cases. “Why, since we know masks work, the rise in cases must be because of you stupid anti-science people who refuse to wear them!”
Even though mask compliance is as high as ever, these “pro-science” people just know it can’t be, because they just know masks at the very least go a long way toward solving the problem.
Well, anyway, how about we check out Arizona’s curve now?
Well, how about that.
Could it be that masks didn’t bring the curve down after all? That these curves seem to do more or less the same thing no matter what?
Right now one blue state after another that supposedly “followed the science,” is seeing a rise in “cases.” And all their people can do is blame their neighbors. Because, don’t you know, the “science” works! So if the “science” isn’t working, that means someone somewhere must not be sciencing.
Let’s check in with “pro-science” Rhode Island. Are masks keeping “cases” down there?
Well, how about that.
I guess by an odd coincidence, people in Arizona and Rhode Island must have chosen the same moment to stop sciencing!
Or, virus gonna virus.
Red-state Utah is in a similar situation. People are screaming at their neighbors to wear masks. And as you can see, that has had a clear and unmistakeable effect:
Thanks to Ian Miller for the charts.
On a related note, I hope to have the video of my remarks to those 100 state legislators up within 24 hours. This is the most important of all my videos on the subject.
Finally: in case you don’t know already, I moved the Tom Woods Show Elite off Facebook.
I resisted for a long time, but the situation had grown intolerable. Their preposterous “fact check” of my “COVID Cult” video really took the cake.
If you appreciate what I do in these emails and on the Tom Woods Show, you’ll be like a kid in a candy store inside the Tom Woods Show Elite, now on MeWe.
We are experiencing the most bizarre moment of our lives, and so many people we know think it’s all normal, even admirable.
And they think you’re crazy and wicked.
Join me inside the Elite for a haven of sanity, where you can keep informed about the real numbers and the real facts — and, as an added bonus, not be called a grandma killer.

P.S. Black Friday is coming up this week. Longtime subscribers know that I send a lot of emails that weekend. They are entertaining, and you will enjoy them. If you’d rather not read them, just delete them, or if that’s too much to ask, just unsubscribe altogether and we can still be friends. I generate a veritable mountain of free content all year, and all I ask in return is that you deal with a heavy email weekend once a year. Thank you!
