The Wuhan virus hysteria is ramping up.
Even though the death rate is cratering, the so-called mainstream media are pushing to amplify panic.
Now CNN wants to do something absurd to people who don’t wear masks.
The politicization of the coronavirus has gotten so much worse.
During the early stages, there was somewhat of a bipartisan effort regarding the outbreak.
Since then, Democrats and their media allies have weaponized the virus more than any biohazard lab could’ve ever dreamed.
Refusing to wear a mask has become tantamount to wearing a lewd or offensive message on a T-shirt.
And now a CNN analyst wants to take it one step further.
Juliette Kayyem wants to start putting people on lists.
.@FAA should adopt a “no mask” list — much like “no fly” list for terror suspects — and permanently prohibit passengers like this from booking flights on any airlines (not just Delta). Call it “total jerks” list if you want, “complete asses” list if it makes you feel better. https://t.co/ehXGOmMX39

The thought of banning people for not wearing masks is quite Orwellian, particularly when the science is so divided.
Kayyem worked in the Obama administration as the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Intergovernmental Affairs, so she doesn’t have any problem with trampling all over the Constitution.
Coincidentally, Kayyem’s husband is circuit court judge David Barron (an Obama appointee), who wrote a memo justifying the use of drone strikes on American citizens, a shocking action undertaken by Obama.
In fact, many people associated with the Obama administration are pushing for draconian laws based on the coronavirus.
One wonders if he would include Dr. Anthony Fauci in that category after he admittedly lied to the American people.
The idea of restricting travel based on politics is nightmarish, and it’s already happening in countries like China, Cuba, and North Korea – not exactly countries America wants to emulate.
Democratic politicians and the corporate press are engaged in a hostage situation.
They’re exacerbating the pandemic crisis by fear-mongering and pushing to keep the economy locked down.
Meanwhile, they’re allowing rioters to run rampant in American cities.
They’ve essentially said the chaos will stop if Joe Biden is elected president in November.
It’s cynical tactic, and hopefully voters don’t let the Democrats get away with it.
