The Democratic left embraced the COVID-19 pandemic with open arms.
The party was the first to call for shutting down the economy.
They were the first to call on President Donald Trump to lock down the country.
They were the first to embrace mask mandates and social distancing.
And they are the last to embrace freedom from COVID restrictions.
Democrats loved to call Trump a ‘tyrant’ an ‘authoritarian.’
Trump, however, was the most constitutional president we’ve had since George Washington. He governed under federalist principles (which leaves decisions and authority to states and localities).
He governed with as light a touch as possible.
But not Democrats. They love big government. They embrace power. They abuse it. They get drunk on it. And once they get it, they love to wield it — forever.
The View’s Sunny Hostin, a “legal analyst,” is a typical example of leftist authoritarianism.
She actually said during her Monday show that Americans who opt out of a COVID vaccine should have no right to fully participate in society.
It's a public health issue. It's not a political issue,' she lied — of course, COVID has become a political issue. Exhibit A: Biden adviser Anita Dunn wrote in her recently released book that 'COVID is the best thing that ever happened to him,' statements the authors suggested 'campaign officials believed but would never say in public.
This is just a vestige of the prior administration's position on the mask. The prior administration was an anti-science administration. I think we're seeing the fallout of the bungling of the pandemic where it led to, you know, the death of over 500,000 people. We now know that studies show, had the pandemic been dealt with in a different way, in a public health manner, and had these masks and efforts not been politicized the way they were, we could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, including the lives of my in-laws.
I say we need to shun those that refuse to get vaccinated. Just like now in certain states, many states, I know in New York there are signs on storefronts on businesses all across the state no mask, no entry. I think if you have not been vaccinated, no entry. You want to get on a plane. You have to be vaccinated. If those people don't want to get vaccinated, that's fine for you, but you can't spread it to other people that are vaccinated.
You can spread it to other people— rather that aren't vaccinated. You don't get the liberties that come with immunity. Something has to break. If that's your personal choice not to get vaccinated, you don't then get to infringe on the rights of those who have chosen to protect their fellow citizens.
Those are the thoughts and words of a tyrant, which explains how she can be right at home in the Democrat Party.
