This underlying belief is why we have never “shut down” the world before because of “the flu.”
But now we have established a precedent.
Do we really intend on “shutting down” the world every year or every other year?
Since when do we quarantine the healthy and the sick?
Tyler Olson of Fox News reports that, “Defensive Dems scold coronavirus lockdown protesters as rallies spread across country.”
“As protests spread against the stay-at-home orders put in place by governors across the country, some prominent Democrats have panned the demonstrations as dangerous and ill-informed, saying the protesters risk spreading coronavirus among themselves and contributing to a spike in cases in their states.”
How typically elitist of you to scold these protesters who were not sanctioned by the liberal hierarchy.
But, remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself.
What would be worse…, losing your business, losing your job, losing your home, losing a place to live, losing all of your money and having to depend on charity to eat…, or possibly getting a flu that has a 98.5% survivability rate? Which is about the same rate as every other flu that’s come down the pike?
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., addressed the protesters in an interview on ‘Fox News Sunday’ with Chris Wallace.”
‘“No, not really,’ she said when asked if she understood why people are demonstrating. ‘…I’m respectful [of] whatever people think they should say, but the fact is this has to be science-based, evidence-based, data-based.’”
Of course, she can’t understand why people are demonstrating!
She hasn’t lost her job!
I mean, she’s been in Congress for the last 100 years!
She’s still getting paid.
Her family’s livelihood isn’t being threatened.
And all of her supporters are still receiving their government checks on schedule.
She’s got enough of cash in her big fat bank accounts, just like all of her other elitist friends, to hold her over for years.
“Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on MSNBC last week said that the protests against her stay-at-home order may lead her to extend the order, due to the fact so many people could have been exposed to the coronavirus.”
Why don’t you just get it over with and extend your order until 2022?
That way you’ll be sure to be safe from the virus…, right?
There’ll be nothing left of the state of Michigan, but you will have saved lives…, at least from the virus.
Remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself!
‘“When you see a political rally, that’s what it was yesterday, a political rally like that where people aren’t wearing masks and they’re in close quarters and they’re touching one another … the odds are very high that they’re spreading COVID-19 along with it,’ she said. ‘So it’s that kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation where we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they’re protesting.’”
On a side note…, please remember that protesters are only deemed “political” when they are in disagreement with the liberal policies. Sunday, Washington Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee explicitly said the protests were ‘illegal.’”
If I’m not mistaken, Jay, the right to protest is protected by The Constitution…, regardless of any orders you may be laying down.
Remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself.
“The anti-stay-at-home order protests are often largely made up of supporters of the president, waving Trump flags and wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. The governors of Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia are also all Democrats.”
Oh…, I’m sure that every single one of the protesters are Trump supporters.
What a disingenuous statement.
I’m sure there are quite a few democrats who also see the harm that some of these extended stay-at-home orders could cause.
“In addition to those states, rallies have also made their way to New York, Ohio, North Carolina, Kentucky and more.”
“Governors of both parties have cautioned against lifting social distancing measures too soon and too completely…”
“[President] Trump’s plan to reopen the economy similarly does so in phases, ‘one careful step at a time.’”
“But Democrats have been more forceful in their rhetoric, not just against protesters but also by keeping states closed.”
AGAIN…, THE CURE CAN’T BE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE ITSELF!
