Tool of the Week: The health nuts

Empower Wisconsin 

MADISON — This week’s tool is a collective army of public health elites who have put liberal politics above even their COVID-19 fear-mongering. 

As Wisconsin Spotlight reported, some 1,000 public health experts nationwide signed an open letter defending the mass protests by the radical left. 

“…(A)s public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission,” the letter states.


Aren’t these the same folks who brought us extreme social distancing, quarantines, and statewide lockdowns? They are. 

And they were livid when conservative groups organized anti-lockdown demonstrations, wailing that these defenders of liberty were putting in peril the health of thousands. They warned of a spike in COVID-19 cases. Many of these health “experts” were appalled that Wisconsin went ahead with in-person voting in April, demanding that there would be blood on the hands of the conservative-led state Supreme Court for ruling on the side of the constitution. 

But suddenly demonstrators crammed together in cities across the nation speaking or shouting out (with all those “droplet sprays”) their anger over police brutality and “systemic racism” are impervious to the novel coronavirus.

Why? Because “white supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID-19,” according to the letter.

These same scientists, epidemiologists, researchers, and public health nurses that created or followed the faulty models that had us so helplessly locked down are now saying social-distancing isn’t necessary when seeking “social justice.” 

At least three of the health professionals work in Wisconsin government — David Charles Mallinson, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Leigh Senderowicz, ScD MPH, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Megan Lasure, MPH, Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene.

They, like their left-wing colleagues, aren’t just useful idiots — they’re tools. 

Together they are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
