NPR sets up snitch hotline for employees to rat out colleagues violating punishable mask mandate

While the COVID pandemic may have ebbed and onerous restrictions on freedoms rolled back, hardcore leftists bitterly cling to their masks, vaccines and petty authoritarianism and in a story that should come as no surprise, National Public Radio has set up a tip line for employees to inform on their co-workers who neglect to adhere to the organization’s mask guidelines.

In an internal memo, NPR is encouraging workers to rat out violators who fail to follow the company’s policy on face coverings, directing them to provide the names of offenders to management and human resources with offenders being subject to disciplinary action that could include the loss of their job.

The memo, which is entitled “Safety Protocol Reminders and Tips”  was posted to Twitter by Dylan Byers of Puck News and reads, “We have asked on-site supervisors to remind staff of the masking requirements when needed.”

“Masking is still required, unless recording alone in a studio, working alone in an office with the door closed, or actively eating or drinking. (And “actively” does not mean occasionally drinking from a water bottle.)” Any extremely rare exceptions to these rules need advance approval from the CMT.

“If you notice someone who has forgotten their mask, you might tell them, ‘Hey, you forgot your mask.’ It’s actually helping the person to be reminded,” the memo reads. “Nobody is intentionally trying to evade the rules. And if you are reminded to wear your mask, say, ‘Thank you!'”

“Please note that the failure to comply with our masking requirement may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination,” the message said, putting employees on notice that dissent from the rules will not be tolerated.

Twitter reacted to the news of NPR’s rat line.

Even though the vast majority of Americans have resumed their normal lives after the hellish period of lockdowns and mask mandates, the return of a state of mass hysteria is a serious possibility, especially in Democrat-controlled areas like New York City which just raised the COVID alert level and is asking residents to mask-up indoors again.

NPR’s snitch line is yet another example of how masks have little to do with “the science” and are more about political identity and forcing others to comply.
