How And Why To Use The CFFS "No Mask" Card

How And Why To Use The CFFS "No Mask" Card

If you are denied entry to a commercial or public building because you are not wearing a mask, then you have a duty to make an appeal to grant access based on a) your right to make your own personal health choices and b) your Constitutional rights under the First Amendment. Wearing the CFFS "No Mask" card is great tool to accomplish both. 

The Big Picture

CFFS No Mask card wearers are making a statement that they do not comply with politically-mandated face mask orders. Wearing a mask has become a symbol of submission to the government as well as to peer pressure. Wearing a CFFS No Mask card is the anti-symbol. CFFS has distributed thousands of No Mask cards around America and its unique color and symbology is easily recognized from a distance. Wear it whenever you leave your home and make a point to engage in a good discussion about it with a few people every week. Be a good ambassador for the First Amendment and freedom to make your own health choices.

Why Wear The CFFS No Mask card

There are two reasons to wear the CFFS No Mask card.

  1. You are exercising your Constitutional right to free speech and the First Amendment. Mandates to wear a face mask and to practice social distancing violate your First Amendment rights to Free Speech and Peaceable Assembly.
  2. You are exercising your right and responsibility to be the sole judge of your own health. If you believe that wearing a mask is detrimental to your health, or if you have an underlying condition that would prevent you from wearing one, then you are opting to not wear one.

Make an Appeal

Making an appeal should be a calm explanation of your position without becoming argumentative or combative. If entry is simply not possible, then you have a choice to make: either walk away or wear a mask for a short period. If you are entering a hospital to visit a loved one, for instance, they will likely not let you in without a mask. For commercial businesses that stubbornly deny entry, you can take your business elsewhere.

Do not threaten personnel with huge fines over violations from the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). With regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, neither agency is enforcing their own regulations to protect the health of American citizens and workers and the courts are not currently interested in forcing them to do so. 

The reverse side of the CFFS No Mask card is printed with the First Amendment. With every interaction, you have the opportunity to share what the First Amendment says, why it is important to all Americans and how wearing a mask is a violation of your Free Speech.

CFFS has posted several documents from authoritative sources on the ineffectiveness of face masks to stop the spread of a virus as well as documents showing the health risks of wearing a mask:

Furthermore, CFFS has posted several articles on the unconstitutional nature of COVID-19 mandates:

It is the responsibility of each No Mask card wearer to learn the facts and practice articulating them before getting into a confrontational situation. Nevertheless, the objective should never be to provoke an argument but rather to stimulate an objective and friendly discussion. If that is simply impossible, then be prepared to walk away.  

Activities

When you are wearing your CFFS No Mask card, you will find that people often ask you where you got it. Please direct them to the CFFS website. You may also carry an extra card to give to someone who really wants and needs it, but encourage them to go to the CFFS website to join. The CFFS URL is printed on the card and on the lanyard.

Some CFFS No Mask card wearers have donated and asked for several extra cards just in case they have an opportunity to give them away. Some of those ask the recipient for a $5 reimbursement and then come back to CFFS and request more cards.

Conclusion

Many Americans are simply fed up with draconian government mandates to wear face masks, social distance, shutter businesses and regulate every aspect of life outside their home. Whenever our First Amendment rights are in conflict with an Executive Order issued by a government official, the First Amendment must always take priority. Since the government is not currently protecting the First Amendment, it is critical for American citizens to stand firm in the exercise of these rights.

Actions speak louder than words!

    Dear friends:

    Hi!! I hope that you’re having a good Saturday thus far; it’s late here on Friday night, so I’m going to keep this brief. You may have seen the viral video featuring the flash mob of maskless people, i.e., free Americans, who swarmed a Trader Joe’s in Santa Cruz, CA, and the appalling treatment they received from the staff (and customers).

    I’m including that links to that video, and two others here; the third one calls for a National Day of Masklessness on Sunday, February 28.  The slogan is, “Walk into a Nazi store without a mask”, and then share your photos/video online.

    Do spread the word about this.  These acts of civil disobedience are so important at this juncture, so that people see that not everyone is a happy slave to this medical tyranny.

    Ciao for now, mf

    Here’s the video links:

    Traitor Joes, and call for national day of masklessness on Sunday; “Walk into a Nazi store without a mask”, and show us the pictures, etc.

    Dear Evelyn: I’m sorry to hear about your problem with Natural Grocer; it’s difficult when it’s only you trying to confront this monolithic delusion. If you have a group of like-minded souls in your vicinity, you might try what these folks did at a Natural Grocers in Lakewood, CO:

    Flash mob of no-maskers invades Natural Grocers in Lakewood, CO; store powerless to deny them access (service provided). Police do nothing …

    https://lbry.tv/@Vedjji:4/FFMob2.small:8

    I’ve been going into grocery stores, etc., with my partner for months, with very little in the way of challenge, although I had some pretty heated exchanges with people back in the early days of the phony “pandemic.” More than one threatened to call the police, and I told them to go right ahead. Crickets …

    Today she asked me to go by myself to our local Food Emporium here on the Upper East Side; no one said boo to me, the cashier couldn’t have been nicer.

    But, the problem is, of course, that it really only takes one interfering loon to make an issue of it; I am certainly boycotting a few places in our area, although I go into them whenever I choose just to flaunt my freedom in their muzzled faces. Hang in there!! mf

    Good for you friend. I too, am still maskless and not sick. I’m in upstate Michigan. It’s cold today and in the minus at night. I have a friend who still wears, and she got a staph infection on her lip. Doctor told her it was from the mask. She’s now can’t wear it because of the infection so she won’t go anywhere. So sad. It’s about 25/75 up here with the 25 being the maskless. Maybe the maskers should wear. Maybe they are not healthy, or feel safe with it on. It’s a personal choice at this point. Keep the faith. Be well.

    Dear friends:

    More from the mask wars in Manhattan; I so envy those of you who are in Florida. I saw that video of those people in the grocery store in Naples being permitted to be “normal” last week, and it was so heartening. I’m still here in Upper East Side Zombieland.

    However, I continue to never wear a mask, and go in and out of any business that I choose; I was challenged twice in a health food store today, and, on both occasions, I cited the medical exemptions that are on the NYS Department of Health web site, and both men backed down. I even pointed out to one of them that his employer has no right to ask him to wear a mask. The grocery stores seem pretty laissez-faire here at the moment, for the most part. My favorite cafe re-opens for indoor dining tomorrow, and I’ll be in there, without a mask, working on my laptop, enjoying my lunch, with no COVID-19 BS; the manager has said to me previously, “Just be normal.”

    There is a psycho Karen that appears to work in our building, and I have had a couple of run-ins with her during the past week; citing a medical exemption cuts no mustard with her, she just screams, “Wear a mask!”, but I let her have it anyway. I was 20 feet down the corridor from her and her companion, telling her to look up the exemption, and she said “Don’t come any closer,” so I walked further toward her, with my arms outstretched, and said “Ooh, look out, here I come.” Mockery is the only appropriate tool of social interaction with these zombies. I told the doorman on the way out that she doesn’t know who she’s f**king with. Another guy was coming up the corridor yesterday, and backed 10 feet away, and said to him, “Yeah, back up dude … I’m radioactive.”

    I continue to receive service in the health food store that banned us a few weeks ago (they have lost a lot of business from us), and go in whenever I want to say hi to friends.

    We’ve been invited down to Florida this spring, and will probably go during the latter half of March … can’t wait!! Hang in there, and fight the good fight!!

    Dear friends:

    I hope that you are all well, and ignoring the MD troll who decided to impose his opinion on all of us; but, after all, free speech is what we’re about.

    This is slightly off-topic, but you might be interested in to see an Australian “citizen ninja” in action; you may or may not be aware of it, but Western Australia’s premier locked down the entire state a couple of days ago for 1 lousy case of the “more rapidly proliferating” South African variant of the bogus COVID-19. This is a video taken by a journalist strolling around Perth, not wearing a mask; he is confronted by two bicycle policemen who threaten him with huge fines. He completely stymies their attempts to extract the necessary information from him that they require, asking them pointed questions himself, and they eventually abandon the attempt. It is truly hilarious and inspiring!! Enjoy!! MIchael F

    I’m happy to you still have your health Pene, but not everyone does. Treating others with respect does not mean putting your misinterpretations of freedom above the safety and well-being of others. Requiring food-service workers to wash their hands and wearing gloves in not oppression, expecting people to shit in a toilet as opposed to on the floor is not oppression, your surgeon wearing a mask in the OR is not oppression and neither is wearing a mask during a pandemic. If masks were only about preventing the user from contracting the disease, I would stand proudly in your corner, but it is even more about preventing the transmission of the disease. Asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic carries are a real problem and have greatly contributed to the spread of the disease. Those sick in bed aren’t very good vehicles for disseminating the virus. If anyone has a sense of self importance, it is you my friend.

    Also, I’m sorry you didn’t appreciate my brand of satire.

    Well in my view, you are a disgusting “doctor”. Who do you think you are speaking to people in such a way. Anything you had to say that I may have listened to has just dissolved. Anyone with that mind set is not on my level of tolerance, kindness and caring. No one here is forcing anyone to wear or not wear a mask. Get a grip “doctor”. I am 77 and not ill, not on any drugs, have no diseases. I know how to take care of my body. Exercise, good food and meditation. Your language is what I expect from “them”, the self-righteous, intolerant and biased medical profession that thinks what they do can cure everyone. There is so much more to this sick masking story and not enough space here for me to write. We are individuals, not a herd, and each person deserves to be treated with dignity and understanding regarding their own body.

    30 whole years! How have you done it? Maybe I should re-think my very educated opinions in light of this miracle you have presented. You’re telling me that in 30 years you have not suffered heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic pulmonary disease or Alzheimers (the 5 leading causes of non-accidental death in the US)? I simply can’t believe it — absolutely incredible!

    You know the internet and free speech are such a wonderful but dangerous combination. Just because everyone is now free to share their opinion, doesn’t make them all equal. Too many American’s seem unable to filter through the bullshit. Instead they type leading searches into Google so that they can receive results that make them feel comfortable by supporting their narrative or “version of the truth,” essentially allowing them to live in an echo-chamber. But you have to know that it’s not true just because someone said it, or just because a few studies weakly suggest support for an idea you want to be true (please reference: The Levels of Evidence and Their role in Evidence-Based Medicine: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3124652/), don’t you.

    Like any profession, there are wackos in medicine. You probably know some in your profession. With roughly 1 million physicians in the US, odds ensure that there will be those who publicly disseminate misinformation – maybe maliciously, maybe not. But for every physician opposing masks, there are 100s in support. There is also absolutely no evidence that standard surgical masks pose a risk to the healthy. In Blaylock’s original bullshit article, he references questionable findings related to N95 masks. Yeah, surgical masks are uncomfortable but that is it. Here is a very recent high powered systematic-review and meta-analysis (highest level of evidence) that concludes face-masks are effective in preventing the transmission of COVID-19.

    Now I will retreat to my sterile bubble, which is an urban academic hospital treating more COVID patients than any other hospital in the city, sure you don’t want to join?

    Well, I must say that it is indeed a pleasure to encounter the inspired input of such an eloquent and well-informed member of the medical profession, so arrogantly certain that his perspective is correct. While I support your right to express your opinion (that’s what this group is about, free speech), if it were only Dr. Russell Blaylock who had inveighed against the dangers of compulsory face mask wearing, you might have a valid argument. However, concerned and conscientious physicians and scientists worldwide have voiced their objections to these degrading and dehumanizing muzzles, and evidence of their deleterious impact on everyone continues to mount, despite the efforts of the mainstream media and medical “experts” such as yourself to discredit them. It is blatantly obvious that, like these myriad mouthpieces of tyranny, you are so smitten with your own importance that you feel entitled to dictate to healthy individuals what they may or may not do to maintain their own well-being. Well, I’ve maintained perfect health for more than 30 years without recourse to a single consultation with a practitioner of Western allopathic medicine, and I am not about to let Dr. Fauci and his corrupt cohort of pharmaceutical shills (nor you, for that matter) deprive me of my right to speak, breathe and live freely.

    I would rather assume that everyone here is pulling this no-mask stunt to make point that you all feel is more important than the health and safety of others. Maybe you also don’t wash your hands after taking a diarrhea shit, perhaps you spit in other peoples drinks or save expired food to serve to your guests.

    Deanna I hear your concerns. I had them also. Here is what I do. If someone says to me “we have a mask policy”, I say, “I have a medical card to not wear one.” If they challenge me I say. “If you don’t want to serve me or let me shop just say so and, I’ll leave.” This makes it up to you. I also went online to my county’s Medical Health Section and it took me a while but I found the place where it says that people with a medical reason to not wear the mask are exceptions and don’t need to. I show that as well. I just made up my mind that I had to have courage. No one is allowed to ask what your medical reason is. Just say, “that’s personal between me and my doctor”. Don’t argue – just leave. I shop at Walmart, Meyers and a local family market. No problem. I had a little problem at my eye doctor, but stood my ground and they let me. They know that legally they can’t stop you. I say again however, don’t argue. Just show your card. How do you know businesses won’t accept until you try. Start with Walmart. Those people are probably on your side. You have to be strong. I’m 77 and I did it. I have not worn a mask since this BS started. I’m free. Just walk in like “normal”. Don’t go in flashing the card. Don’t take it out unless they challenge you. I was sweating the first time I did it. But now I just get my cart and go in. Good luck and God bless dear. Let your faith be stronger than your fear. Oh, and politely hand them a brochure and smile.

    Yes, it’s a stretch for some people to “stand up for their rights”, but once you do it, it gets easier. My first few tries I could feel my b/p going up, but now that I carry my CFFS card and also the statement from the Health Department, I’m more at ease. Besides having a medical reason for not wearing, I am also hearing impaired and can barely hear anyone wearing. Plus, I am asymptomatic. Don’t let anyone bully you. You’ll feel better if you stand up. Trust me.

    Dear Pene:

    Hi from New York!! Good on you, mate, for not complying with the ridiculous BS at the eye doctor; none of these requirements make any sense.

    I have a similar story; you may recall that we have been banned from our health food store. What with the holiday, and less than inspiring weather, I hadn’t been out of the apartment for a few days. But, yesterday, I was definitely in the mood for some civil disobedience, so I marched right in, and said hello to various employees with whom we are friendly. After I had greeted him with disdain from afar, I was then buttonholed by the assistant manager, who, I’m certain at some level, had been toady to the decision to deny us access (of course, they are powerless to prevent it).

    He made some vague gesture toward his face mask (couldn’t understand him, of course), whereupon I responded that the NYS Dept. of Health did not require me to wear a mask, nor comply with the store’s requirement thereof. Then, to my quiet astonishment, he asked if he could help me with anything. I responded by saying that I’d let him know when I needed his help, and departed.

    About 2 hours later, I decided to test the waters by seeing whether I would be treated as a customer rather than a disease vector; returning to the store, I picked up a single item that we needed, approached one of the tellers, who is always quite friendly, and said, “Will you wait on me?” And he responded, “Of course.” We exchanged pleasantries about the recent holiday, I completed my purchase, and exited; I neither know, nor care, what any of the customers thought.

    So, this is the other thing that you have to bear in mind is that many of the employees in these businesses are fed up after several months of these indignities, and not in sympathy with this mask tyranny. Many have health issues that wearing a mask exacerbates. They are merely complying because they want to keep their jobs, and these individuals are prepared to flout the official dictates if you refuse to heed them.

    I have nothing by sympathy for these persons, but utter contempt for those who have forced these intolerable mandates upon them, and their customers. My advice is, echoing our friend Pene, make yourself aware of the local regulations, which, more often than not, provide definite exemptions, medical and otherwise, and just say NO. Happy holidays!! mf

Although a face mask is strongly encouraged even for individuals not required to wear one (except for children under the age of 2), the requirement to wear a face mask in this order does not apply to individuals who: Are younger than 5 years old, outside of child-care organization setting (which are subject to requirements set out in section 6(e); Cannot medically tolerate a face mask; Are eating or drinking while seated at a food service establishment; Are exercising outdoors and able to consistently maintain six feet of distance from others; Are swimming; Are receiving a service for which removal of the face mask is necessary; Are asked to temporarily remove a face mask for identification purposes; Are communicating with someone who is deaf, deafblind, or hard of hearing and whose ability to see the mouth is essential to communication; Are actively engaged in a public safety role, including but not limited to law enforcement, firefighters, or emergency medical personnel, and where wearing a face mask would seriously interfere in the performance of their public safety responsibilities; Are at a polling place for purposes of voting in an election; Are engaging in a religious service; or Are giving a speech for broadcast or to an audience, provided that the audience is at least six feet away from the speaker.

    I urge everyone to look up your county requirements.
