Alaska’s Republican governor rejected President Joe Biden’s call for states to either continue or reinstitute face mask mandates.
Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, was made aware of the threat of COVID-19, he acted faster than most other states and the federal government and he essentially told President Joe Biden to take a hike in response to the Democrat’s insistence on a nationwide, one-size-fits-all coronavirus mask mandate.
Gov. Mike posted on his Twitter account, “No thanks, @POTUS – you can keep your mask mandate,” the Alaska Republican tweeted Monday. “We’ll keep doing it the #Alaska way: trust the people & let them live their lives.”
Gov. Mike was reacting to perfunctory, prepared statements Biden made hours earlier in which he urged “every governor, mayor, and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate.”
President Biden claimed his one-size-fits-all mask mandate is not political theater. No, he insisted, “it’s the patriotic duty” of all Americans to wear face burqas to combat the coronavirus.
“Please, this is not politics,” Biden declared. “Reinstate the mandate if you let it down. And business should require masks as well.”
“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months, at a minimum,” Biden said. “Every governor should mandate mandatory mask-wearing. The estimates by the experts are will save over 40,000 lives. The next three months. 40,000 lives.”
Meanwhile, after calling a nationwide mask mandate, Joe Biden puts his mask back on.
Pres. Biden and other panic-pimping Democrats insist that masks save lives, but they never criticized the lack of masks during the countless Black Lives Matter demonstrations over the past year. As usual, Biden’s policy positions are not based in fact or reality.
Paul, a physician, pointed out that places with strict mask mandates around the country experienced spikes in COVID-19 infections. It does not make any sense to force a farmer in Iowa or a rancher working on a sprawling Texas ranch to wear a mask when working outdoors?
“I think the burden should be on government. If the government’s going to tell you you can’t go anywhere unless you’re wearing a mask, they should tell you why. And they should present the evidence,” he said.
Paul continued: “It’s like wearing your underwear. You might as well cut your underwear up and wear your underwear as protection. It doesn’t work.”
This is Chicago.
According to the left, THIS is okay but going to church, visiting your dying relatives, or sending your kids to school isn’t.
Why the double standard?
