The Photograph That Brought An End To 1918’S Mask Mandate During Spanish Flu

Team Tucker Carlson:
Mask mandates in America didn’t start with the coronavirus pandemic. During the Spanish flu of 1918, government officials ordered similar edicts, their media and nonprofit lackeys shamed the resistant, and health agents in some cases went to fatal extremes to punish the noncompliant, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson reported Monday during his monologue.

At the height of the worst pandemic in American history – the Spanish flu of 1918 – cities across the country did something, modern America would find familiar. They issued mandatory mask mandates and punished anyone who didn’t comply. “The man or woman or child who will not wear a mask now is a dangerous slacker,” read a typical announcement from the Red Cross.

The city of San Francisco, took the rules so seriously that a city health agent shot a man who refused to wear a mask – he hit the two bystanders who happened to be standing behind the man. That seemed a bit much to some people, but many others went along with it. They were afraid of the virus. They wanted to do their part to stop it. Most of all, they trusted their leaders. If their leaders put a mandate in place, they assumed it was for a good reason and they wanted to help. (Fox News)

But then something happened that shook the American public from their blind obedience. A photograph surfaced from a boxing match in San Francisco. Among those attending were several high-ranking public officials—all unmasked.

  1. You would think that after more than a century of masks being available that we would have a better understanding of how well they work.
    In fact we do – many, many studies were being cited more than a year ago and they have generally shown that masks won’t prevent the spread of a tiny virus. But when political leaders insist that to not wear a mask is to murder your neighbor a lot of sheep fall in line.

    Here is a detailed link about how worthless and actually harmful mask mandates are:

  2. This is never going to end, when I still see so many mask muzzles 😷 on faces, even on kid’s as young as two,
    it takes all of my being not to walk over and tell them they are committing child abuse.

    Had to go to the Doc today and they had signs in seating area where you couldn’t sit which was most of the waiting room.
    Wanted to just shout to the sheeple who were lucky enough to have a chair, WAKE UP is this how you want to live? This isn’t the America I grew up in.

    If I didn’t absolutely have to go, I would have just walked out.

    I cry for our country 😥 and try to stay positive but we are way beyond the two weeks to flatten the curve.

  3. Won’t work today: We no longer have a shame culture that motivates people caught in shameful behavior.

    In today’s world if you’re A Democrat than you are the leader who needs no barriers to behavior because everything you do is trend setting. There is no shame.

  4. How many of our “leaders” have we caught maskless now? Newsom at his dinner party, Obama at his birthday party, Pelosi at whatever the fuck it was she was doing the other night, etc., etc., etc. These people have no shame and they will not relent.
