Washington Post Editor Trolled On Twitter For Mask-Facist Attitude

Written By BlabberBuzz | Tuesday, 19 October 2021 20:30

Washington Post deputy editorial page editor Ruth Marcus prompted anger around Twitter when she claimed she scolded a random stranger about wearing a mask.

In a tweet on Sunday, Marcus said she criticized an unmasked man with whom she shared an elevator ride in Madison, Wisconsin, saying it is an example of just how notably the country has fallen.

"In Madison, Wis. By now, I should know better, but: I get in the elevator. It stops on the lower floor. Man steps in, unmasked," she tweeted. "Sign-in elevator says masks are required. Me, getting out: 'you know, it would be really nice if you wore a mask.' Man: 'I don't care what you think.' America 2021."

"It's a rule, a county rule," she continued. "'Face coverings are required among people ages two and older when in any enclosed space open to the public where other people, except for members of the person's own household or living unit, are present.'"

Conservatives from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' press secretary Christina Pushaw to author Michael Malice did not take kindly to Marcus's mask laments in light of being fully vaccinated.

Ruth Marcus had pushed a bevy of left-wing talking points about the coronavirus pandemic, such as when she claimed that doctors should be allowed to refuse unvaccinated patients if "resources are scarce": "I'm going to come right out and say it: In situations where hospitals are overwhelmed and resources such as intensive care beds or ventilators are scarce, vaccinated patients should be given priority over those who have refused vaccination without a legitimate medical or religious reason.

"This conflicts radically with accepted medical ethics, I recognize. And under ordinary circumstances, I agree with those rules. The lung cancer patient who's been smoking two packs a day for decades is entitled to the same treatment as the one who never took a puff. The drunk driver who kills a family gets a team doing its utmost to save him — although, not perhaps, a liver transplant if he needs one. Doctors are healers, not judges."

In another piece for the Washington Post, Marcus also claimed people should be forced to take the vaccine "as a condition of going to work or enrolling in school."

"Do whatever it takes — and, recent weeks have shown, it is going to take steps like these — to get the pandemic under control," she wrote.

Marcus also denounced Yale Law School students and officials who became upset over a party invitation sent by another student they claimed included "pejorative and racist language."

In a Thursday op-ed, Marcus teased the "grievance culture" of the students driving the backlash to second-year law student Trent Colbert's invitation to a Constitution Day party, and declared that, although they may be the best and brightest students, they needed to do some growing up.
