The American people view Democrats as the Party of lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine passports.
But Party leaders are furiously working to change that perception.
And Ron DeSantis just exposed the real reason why Democrats are suddenly rolling back COVID mandates.
From the very beginning of the pandemic, Ron DeSantis fought to keep Florida mostly open and free of mandates and restrictions.
He refused to impose economy-crushing lockdowns and banned mask and vaccine passports.
DeSantis also promoted the use of monoclonal antibodies as an effective early treatment against COVID.
Because of his refusal to bow to Biden and Fauci’s demands, Democrats and the corporate-controlled media spent the past two years attacking DeSantis for keeping the Sunshine State open for business while banning mask and vaccine mandates.
But polls show the American people are sick of the mandates and restrictions and want a return to normalcy in America.
Of course, Democrat officials see the same polls.
And after pushing lockdowns and mandates for the past two years, Democrats are singing a different tune, with several blue state Governors rolling back their mask and vaccine mandates.
However, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is calling out Democrats for their sudden change in COVID policies.
“The minute those elections are over, they will impose mandates if they feel the need to do that,” DeSantis began, adding that “they will impose restrictions.”
DeSantis then pointed out how, after being in the news every day for the past two years, Anthony Fauci has suddenly gone missing.
According to DeSantis, Democrats put Fauci in “witness protection” until after the Midterm elections.
“And so that will happen if those types of people are allowed to be put in power — my view on that is, they’ve put Fauci in the witness protection program because he will say, you know, no, you should still wear a mask, and he’s never going to say be normal, go back to normal. So they know that, and they know that that’s not what people want,” DeSantis said, pointing out how the American “people want to be able to make decisions for themselves.”
Of course, even though he viciously opposes mask and vaccine mandates, Ron DeSantis has no problem with an individual making a personal choice to mask up or get vaccinated.
“There’s nothing wrong if on an individual basis you make a certain calculation,” DeSantis continued. “That’s fine. We encourage you to do that. But it’s wrong to mandate people and restrict people, and that will happen. I guarantee you, winter of 2022, any of those folks that are there, you are going to see that happen,” he added.
DeSantis then said that the “only” solution to making sure this didn’t happen was for Republicans to wipe out the Democrats at the ballot box in November.
“The only way to make sure it doesn’t happen is to have a nice, big, red wave. So, we’ll see,” DeSantis concluded.
Polls already show Republicans are expected to make major gains in both houses of Congress this fall.
But as DeSantis pointed out, if they’re associated with lockdowns and mandates, the beating Democrats take will be even worse.
And that is why blue state Governors are rushing to roll back the mandates and restrictions they pushed so hard for over the past two years.
