In his podcast this week, Charlie Kirk explained how “passing laws is not enough” because “Democrats and the left must respect the power dynamics” for the government to adequately and efficiently work. On Thursday, President Joe Biden proved Charlie’s point.
Referencing municipalities and local governing boards that are defying bills which do not allow for mask mandates, Kirk notes that they are holding the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) above the state’s authority.
Biden is not only condoning, but praising their behavior going so far as to call them “heroes.” Out of all the people in the world and all the hardship endured over the past year, Biden has chosen those who are actively taking away parents’ freedom to make choices for the health of their children to call heroes?
During remarks at the White House Thursday, in what was supposed to be about drug costs, Biden thanked local community leaders disobeying laws and governors and pushing for mask mandates for children.
“I know there are a lot of people out there trying to turn a public safety measure – that is children wearing masks in school so they can be safe – into a political dispute and that this isn’t about politics. This is about keeping our children safe.” Biden concluded, “Thank God that we have heroes like you and I stand with you all and America should as well.”
Republican governors Ron DeSantis of Florida, Gregg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona have signed orders banning mask mandates in public schools. The “federal government has no right to tell parents that in order for their kids to attend school in person, they must be forced to wear a mask all day, every day” said Governor DeSantis.
“Many Florida schoolchildren have suffered under forced masking policies, and it is prudent to protect the ability of parents to make decisions regarding the wearing of masks by their children” he added.
