Mask Bullshit




My letter to the editor on mask-wearing. Feel free to adapt to your local paper

Steve Kirsch

They are bringing back masks in San Jose for city employees. So I wrote a letter to the editor. Feel free to repurpose it for your local paper if you are impacted by these mandates as well.

The recent mask study in Finland was the best mask trial to date. It showed that, if there was any effect at all, masks made it more likely you would be infected. UCSF Professor Vinay Prasad acknowledged this in a recent YouTube video on his channel.

In addition, the highly acclaimed Bangladesh mask study was thoroughly debunked by UK math Professor Norman Fenton who asked the journal to retract or correct the study. Also, the first author of the Bangladesh study, Jason Abaluck, was unable to defend the study in a two-hour discussion with medical journal editor James Lyons-Weiler.

Maybe it is time for politicians to respect what science tells us?

If they have better science, then they should tell us what it is. If they don’t, they should follow the best science.

Please, let’s stop making the problem worse.

We have requested a public debate with Dr. Sara Cody, but she refuses to be held accountable.


We need more reports like this from Toko yesterday

Have just had an interesting conversation with one of the senior women at our local supermarket who was curious to know why I never wore a mask. I said to her, “you do know that the Cov. will get into your body through your eyes?” I told her that it was like peeling an onion, …your eyes were not going to be stopped from watering up because you were wearing a mask over your mouth and nose. She said that she didn’t know that and I told her to go and check the instructions on the mask box, saying that it would tell her that the masks were not intended to prevent viruses.

She came back with a smile saying the guff on the box was, ‘may assist in the prevention of airborne bacteria.’ She thought she had me until I told her that the Cov. was a virus, not a bacteria and explained the difference to her….another “I didn’t know that’ reply.

This conversation was all in earshot of the mask-wearing manager. The Great Unquestioning Brain-Washed are all about us.

  1. I never wear a mask anywhere and I almost never have anybody ask me why. But on the rare occasions when this happens I reply thus:

    “I have a severe respiratory disorder. When I wear a mask I cannot breathe out. Then the gasses build up down here (indicates pelvic area)…. and I fart uncontrollably”.

    Most of the time this gets a laugh. But on the very few occasions when this doesn’t work I add “Here, lend me your mask and I’ll show you”. So far nobody has taken me up on my offer.
