(Republican Party News) – After Texas announced they were going to lift their mask mandates state-wide and open businesses back to 100%, liberals’ heads completely exploded. They began throwing tantrums in defiance of a state bucking back against their authority.
How dare Texas allow residents to get on with life. How dare Texans go out and about without wearing a mask? The audacity!
Joe Biden was among the critics of Texas’ decision to totally reopen and ditch the masks. He responded by hurling insults at the Lone Star state calling it “Neanderthal thinking.”
Apparently living freely without government overlords dictating our every move and issuing abusive mandates is now “Neanderthal thinking.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott didn’t take too kindly to Biden’s disparaging remarks and hit back during an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” and said that Biden’s “Neanderthal thinking” comment was “not the type of word that a president should be using.”
Abbott also noted that Biden couldn’t have picked a “worse day” to use that particular phrase considering how he’s handling the illegal immigration crisis currently overwhelming Texas.
Abbott pointed out how many of the illegal aliens being permitted to cross the southern border every day have not been tested for COVID and are likely carrying the virus.
“The day he used that word, his administration has been releasing in South Texas immigrants who came across the border that they refused to test that turned out—there were more than 100 of them who had COVID,” Abbott said.
Essentially, Biden’s indignation over Texas’ decision to lift the mandates and reopen is disingenuous seeing as how his administration is allowing immigrants to enter South Texas without any restrictions that have COVID-19.
“Some of those people have been put on buses, taking that COVID to other states in the United States. The Biden administration must stop importing COVID into our country. That is a Neanderthal type of approach to dealing with the COVID situation,” Abbott aptly stated.
He further went on to defend his decision to reopen the state and end mask mandates starting March 10 saying that things aren’t really as dramatic as they seem to people around the country who are still under strict lockdowns.
Abbott pointed out that they were previously at 75% capacity for restaurants so going to 100% is not that great of a leap. He also noted that there hasn’t really been any enforcement of the mask mandates in the state and it’s been more of a suggestion than a mandate anyway.
Abbott also asserted that the most recent spike in the state occurred during Christmas and New Years and was attributed to the fact that people were gathering in homes without masks, not because of restaurants, gyms and other businesses.
Following in Texas’ footsteps, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves announced Tuesday that they too would be fully opening up and also lifting their mask mandate.
If we’re all actually following the “science” it’s long past time to end the COVID lockdown charade and move on with life. We thought Biden was of the party who “follows the science” but perhaps he’s more inclined to a “Neanderthal” way of thinking himself.
