How much Russian influence has there been on masks?

We know that Russia has been meddling in our elections, and attacking us through social media. What I'd love to know is how much of our current mask freak outs have been influenced by Russia?

1. I don't have a tinfoil hat...

But if the goal of the Russians is to stir-fry our politics, it would seem logical that they would stir up the mask situation.

2. I would guess that the Russians watch trends

and if they are bad for the US, they make them worse. So yes, these idiots are useful, fellow travelers, good Russian Patriots.

3. I have no doubt. If you want to take down the US, it's such an easy target.

Produce a few videos of people freaking out over masks, make them go viral.

Next thing you know, people are shunning masks and infection rates are through the roof.

Mission accomplished.

4. As A Mask Hater

I can say that I have never been contacted by any Russian. It's purely personal - the foggy glasses, the sweat running down inside the mask, the inability to breathe, talking with it in my mouth, talking with the Kleenex I put in it to avoid glasses fog in my mouth, trying to go down steps while looking through the reading part of my lens without killing myself, the general inability to see... Oh, but don't worry, I do wear it when I absolutely have to despite the lack of any evidence of efficacy. It avoids attacks by Karens when I'm in a store.
