(Natural News) It’s becoming clearer by the day that the left hates America and everything it stands for, as their reaction to the great news coming out of Texas and Mississippi that their governors are reopening their states completely — even though the COVID pandemic is still happening — demonstrates.
Gov. Greg Abbott (R) of Texas and Gov. Tate Reeves (R) of Mississippi announced this week that all COVID-19 restrictions on businesses and on citizens, including mandatory mask-wearing, social distancing and limitations on indoor activities, are going to be lifted.
Now, mind you, some libertarians and conservatives — many, actually — believe that these restrictions should have never been put in place to begin with, because constitutionally speaking, governors really didn’t have the power to issue lockdowns, they say.
“We must now do more to restore livelihoods and normalcy for Texans by opening Texas 100 percent,” Abbott said, adding “that all businesses and families in Texas have the freedom to determine their own destiny.”
Reeves, meanwhile, said “we are lifting all of our county mask mandates and businesses will be able to operate at full capacity without any state-imposed rule.”
Nevertheless, though these restrictions went on for a year, they are now going away in these two red states. And the left is apoplectic.
“The state just endured one disaster worsened by selfishness + denial of basic science, and now conditions are being set for another. Repealing the mask mandate now endangers so many people, especially essential workers [and] the vulnerable,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the idiot bartender from the Bronx, tweeted.
93.2% of Texans aren’t fully vaccinated.

“This endangers the entire country and beyond. We are in a pandemic. We know that COVID spread isn’t neatly contained by state borders, and explosions in COVID cases can increase the likelihood of new COVID variants to develop or spread to new places. It’s dangerous,” she added.
Yes, of course, the science…which hasn’t been correctly consulted and utilized since the coronavirus with a 99.5 percent recovery rate first swept across our country.
What’s “dangerous” is keeping public schools closed and harming a generation of children, even though “the science” says reopening them is safe for students and teachers.
Meanwhile, a ‘lockdown’ governor, Gavin Newsom of California, called the decisions by Texas and Mississippi “absolutely reckless.”

Not nearly as reckless as, say, dining out in a fancy French eatery with dozens of close, rich, lobbyist friends without masks and social distancing though, right governor?
Yes, well, nothing nearly as reckless as, saying, dining indoors at a fancy French restaurant with wealthy donors, maskless and without social distancing against your own rules.

Meanwhile, with lockdowns still in place, California has actually surpassed New York, which was already bad with coronavirus deaths and illnesses, just recently. (Related: Fauci desperately wants to rollout Vaccine Passports and grant vaccine companies absolute control over your life.)
Not to be outdone in the fear porn category, the Washington Post editorial board followed up with an op-ed saying Texas’ lifting of mask mandates “is gambling with the health of his state and beyond.”
“While everyone is eager for a break from restrictions, Mr. Abbott’s decision is premature and reckless,” the editors wrote.
At the same time, we have President Joe Biden trying to tell Americans that hey, it’s gonna be another whole year before we can get back to normal.

Next year. Think about that. How far we have come from “just give us two weeks to bend the curve.” Now we have leftists telling us we’re essentially never going to be back to normal and that masks, lockdowns and venues one-third full are it for the foreseeable future.
The liberty-minded in Texas and Mississippi — and, really, most other red states that either never shut down (South Dakota) or barely did (Missouri) — know that the virus is going to virus no matter what we do or don’t do, so the best thing now is to get the country moving forward again and give Americans their freedom back.
