Florida is sending a clear message to President Biden; they will not go into lockdown. As news of the new Covid-19 variant omicron is sending some into a panic, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is standing strong.
According to The Daily Wire:
DeSantis’ remarks immediately followed remarks that he gave where he slammed the media’s narrative about the massacre on people who participated in a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
“And speaking of narratives, we are not in Florida going to allow any media driven hysteria to do anything to infringe people’s individual freedoms when it comes to any type of COVID variants,” DeSantis said. “And when I saw Fauci on TV yesterday saying that he couldn’t rule out lock downs. And then even today, President Biden didn’t rule it out. He said, ‘no, not now. For now.’ And let me just say in Florida, we will not let them lock you down. We will not let them take your jobs. We will not let them harm your businesses. We will not let them close your schools.”
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result,” DeSantis continued. “The lockdowns didn’t stop COVID. Forced masking, they said last year would end the pandemic, if 80% wore masks, many more than that were wearing masks and it hasn’t worked. They said you could get COVID off surfaces, which isn’t true. They’ve not been honest about the origins of the virus, and they haven’t been forthright about natural immunity. And with these travel restrictions, I was probably the first governor in January of 2020 to call for travel restrictions from China. I supported President Trump when he did that, but we have to take a step back and acknowledge that those travel restrictions just didn’t work, the virus had already spread.”
Watch DeSantis here!
