As I’ve written previously, a growing number of people have become absolutely fed up with the double standards on display from Democratic politicians when it comes to reopening, trying to get life back to normal as much as possible, and public protests in the middle of a pandemic.
It was not even two weeks ago that CNN ridiculously tried to shame beachgoers in Alabama who weren’t social distancing and weren’t wearing masks.
And before that, governors in states like mine were lecturing against people beginning to go back to church in groups of larger than 10 people, saying it was unsafe and big risk to public health. And before that, reopen protesters, pro-life counselors, and business owners in my state were arrested for having the audacity to exercise their First Amendment rights and for trying to reopen their small businesses to support their families.
People who wanted to do all of this were painted as “selfish” people who were only interested in “getting a haircut” and who didn’t care about the lives of their fellow citizens – by the media, and by Democrats.
Contrast that now with how those marching for justice for George Floyd -including Antifa thugs like this one – are given a pass on these same lectures about public health and flattening the curve from Democrat and media hypocrites on the need to stay home, social distance, wear a mask, and not gather in large groups.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was asked during a recent interview about the protests and the acts of violence that are taking place in American cities across the country, and absolutely went off – not just on Antifa punks, but also on “Democrat authoritarians” who not long ago were having parents arrested for taking their kids to parks because those selfish parents allegedly didn’t care that we were trying to combat the Wuhan coronavirus.
Fast forward to now, said Cruz, and they same Democratic leaders are turning a blind eye to looters and rioters in their cities and states, making excuses for them, and in some cases openly admitting to supporting the Antifa elements of the protests.
Unacceptable, said Cruz. Enough. Watch:
Sen. @tedcruz: "A lot of these authoritarians on the local level were quick to send in the police to arrest a dad for playing softball with a six-year-old daughter or to try to shut down a church that was daring to worship." pic.twitter.com/WIGEb2M65j
