Cuomo is playing games to deflect his own problems. Trust the science. That’s what Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been telling us for the past year in justifying the draconian and crippling COVID measures enacted under his emergency powers. The restrictions were not his fault, he suggested; he had to follow the directives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He even endlessly claimed (disingenuously) that it was the CDC’s guidance that led to his order forcing nursing homes to take COVID-contagious patients, resulting in more deaths in those facilities.
Yet now that the CDC has granted vaccinated Americans a reprieve from wearing masks, the Emperor of New York says he knows better. Now it’s: Screw the science, keep the masks on — and don’t take them off until I say so. Cuomo announced last week that New York would not follow the new CDC guidance but would instead make its own call regarding the ubiquitous face fabric. The governor, you see, and his health commissioner, Howard Zucker (with whom he teamed up to doom hundreds of elderly New Yorkers with that disastrous nursing-home policy), have to first review the policy before greenlighting any mercy for the masked.
Now, if this “I know better” approach sounds familiar, it should. It was Cuomo, after all, who said last year that he didn’t trust the federal government on vaccines and would make his own decision, casting needless doubt on the Trump administration’s miracle medicines. Cuomo’s not alone in his science denialism this time. He and Mayor Bill de Blasio have set aside their solipsistic sniping at each other and are for once in agreement in superseding science: They both declined to let New Yorkers remove their muzzles immediately.
Not even a blessing from the leader of their own party, President Joe Biden, saying it’s OK to go mask-free has dampened their desire to keep us under this senseless restriction. It seems as if these usually bickering blowhards are competing to see who can keep New Yorkers more confused. Their schizophrenic game of Simon Says has consistently left heads spinning, on schools, on restaurants, on church attendance — on everything. And every step of the way, the only science they accept without question is that which keeps citizens under their thumbs.
