The Left's Next Abuse of Power
Liberals are giddy about the opportunity to bring back mask mandates
Of course, liberals want to bring back mask mandates. They loved the pandemic era: the trillions of dollars they got to spend, the millions of people they got to boss around, the unprecedented power they got to abuse.
For most Americans, Covid-19 was a nightmare. For elite woke fanatics, it was like a two-year bender in Las Vegas.
So, of course, they are itching to run it back this fall when the cold and flu season kicks in. It’s already starting.
A school in Maryland has reinstituted its mask mandate for students, even though we know for a fact now that the virus does not seriously threaten children.
Hospitals in New York and Massachusetts are requiring masks again, too.
And — right on cue — Covid’s godfather Anthony Fauci piped up, worrying that people might not mask up against when told to.
Where there is smoke, there’s fire — and where there are mask mandates, there’s left-wing lawlessness and abuse of power.
So when the U.S. Senate returned from its summer recess, conservatives wanted to nip this little tyranny in the bud. Some of our closest allies — Sens. Josh Hawley, Eric Schmitt, Ted Budd, and others — worked together to pass a bill prohibiting new mask mandates nationwide.
The “Freedom to Breathe Act” would block federal funds from financing mask mandates in schools, mass transit, and airlines.
As Sen. Ted Cruz put it: “If you want to voluntarily wear a mask, fine, but leave our kids the hell alone.”
That may sound reasonable to you. But Senate Democrats blocked the bill! They say it’s about federalism — letting states and local communities decide masking policy themselves. But let’s be real: There hasn’t been a Democrat who cared about federalism since Jim Crow!
The real reason woke politicians will try to block protections for Americans’ rights to socialize, go to school, go to work, and breathe clean air is that they are 100% planning to take those rights away again.
Democrats don’t see mask mandates as something they must do but as something government they get to do! They are giddily waiting for Americans to get sick so they can cook up another crisis, shut down businesses and churches, and make themselves feel powerful and important like the good old days of Emperor Fauci.
If Americans want to prevent annual lockdowns and mask mandates, the only way is to elect true conservatives to the United States Senate. Not just Republicans. Not just corporate yes-men who will do Wall Street’s bidding. No, fighting the Covid-19 Left requires serious, tough leaders who understand the nature of this conflict and our opponents.
That is who we support. It’s who Americans are depending on. It’s who your support for SCF will help elect in the upcoming primaries, next November’s elections, and beyond. Thank you for that support — and for sustaining it in this new battle.
