For over a year now, the far-left and the media have whipped a huge segment of the population into a frenzy over masks.
They’ve ignored common sense, and demonized anyone who they believe doesn’t have the appropriate level of fear over COVID.
Because of that, it was utterly refreshing to see this conservative Senator put a reporter in their place for insisting he wear a mask.
On Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and several other Republican Senators, held a press conference to discuss the border crisis caused by Joe Biden’s actions.
However, as Senator Cruz began to speak an unnamed reporter asked, “Would you mind putting on a mask for us?”
“Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera I’m not going to wear a mask, and all of us have been immunized,” Cruz said, gesturing to his fellow Senators.
Clearly incensed that Cruz was not doing exactly what he was told to do to appease the media’s own personal issues, the reporter pressed further and insisted that the Senator put on a mask to make the media “feel better.”
“You’re welcome to step away if you like,” Cruz fired back, rightly adding that the “whole point of a vaccine” was so that he no longer had to wear a mask.

Of course, this level of derangement over Republicans’ use of masks is nothing new for the liberal media.
They have constantly demonized Republicans who utilize commonsense when it comes to COVID, yet they don’t seem to hold politicians and bureaucrats on their side of the political aisle to the same standards.
In fact, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds press conferences every day that are similar to the one Senator Cruz took part in Wednesday, but rather peculiarly, she has never worn a mask.
And not once has anyone from the establishment media questioned Psaki’s choice to not wear a mask during those briefings, and she’s certainly never been demonized for it the way Cruz and other Republicans have.
As Psaki has previously said, “If health and medical experts told me I should wear a mask while I was briefing, I would do it. But I am following the guidelines they are giving us, as is the president.”
So why then is the media now claiming that Senator Ted Cruz is violating the same guidelines put forth by “health and medical experts” that Psaki says she too is following by not wearing a mask?
Well, it’s rather simple, actually – Ted Cruz is a Republican.
That’s it, that’s the entire issue at hand here.
The media will stop at nothing to demonize Republicans as a threat to the health and well-being of the nation, while declaring Democrats the saviors of the American people.
It’s this type of clear double-standard that has the majority of the population waking up to their propaganda, and why they lose the trust of more and more Americans everyday.
They have overplayed their hand, and thanks to someone like Senator Ted Cruz, who had the backbone to stand up to the nonsense, the media is finally being exposed for who they truly are.
