Mask-loving Hintz goes mask-free

MADISON — Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) has been an outspoken critic of anyone who would dare challenge mask mandates during COVIID-19. The gloom and doom peddler and his big-government pals have equated those not wearing face coverings to murderers.

So, it’s interesting that Hintz recently was seen at a Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) 6 breakfast — sans mask.

In a photo obtained by Empower Wisconsin, Hintz is seated at a table of six. Most are wearing face coverings. The haughty Democrat appears to have abandoned his mask (the one thing he claims will save us all from mass destruction), while he writes in a notebook. There’s no food at the table, so it doesn’t appear Hintz has dropped his mask to feed his face.

It’s quite a hypocritical turn from the guy who called his Republican legislative colleagues hypocrites for passing a resolution ending Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate, principally because the Democratic governor was breaking the law. Hintz railed against the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s 4-3 ruling striking down the mandate.

“I think there’s real apprehension about being in a room for a sustained period of time with people that aren’t willing to wear masks,” Hintz told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in late December as his fellow grandstanding Democrats weighed skipping the inauguration of state lawmakers. He said he feared being at the Capitol could “endanger his community” because many Republicans weren’t wearing masks. according to the newspaper. It was like the “Wild West,” Hintz said.

Discussing the Supreme Court ruling, Hintz told Wisconsin Public Radio that ending Evers’ statewide mask mandate allows Republicans in the Legislature to “put ideology and politics above the public health…”

“We know mask mandates work. There’s enough evidence out there between counties that have done it and counties that haven’t,” the Democratic leader said. The Journal Sentinel’s Democrat-affirming Politifact gave Gordo a big, fat “True” on that one.

Hintz appears to have had a change of heart — at least at the CESA 6 table.

We can only hope his disregard for public safety doesn’t cause the next surge in state-wide COVID-19 cases.

  • Hmm I wonder how mr. Hintz explains states like south dakota, texas, and Florida. Sd never shut down or tried to enforce a mask mandate. Florida is back completely open no problems.
    Texas ended mask mandate and their numbers are falling.
    For hintz and all democrats science is a pseudonym for radical leftist socialist agenda.
