Leftist director Michael Moore said Texans don’t deserve the COVID vaccine because the state lifted its restrictions, allowing businesses to open 100 percent and removing the statewide mask mandate.
Moore tweeted on Wednesday, “Texas – we hear you. You didn’t want to be part of our electrical grid. And now you’ve removed your mask mandate & are allowing large crowds to gather. We hear you! COVID is a hoax! So u don’t need our precious vaccine. We’ll send it to ppl who are saving lives by wearing masks.”

Moore then wrote, “2. Yes, we must and will find a way to vaccinate the poor and people of color in Texas. To Texans who say, hey, it’s not me – it’s the Governor! Well, then, impeach and remove him. We’re tired of this. Don’t mess with Texas? Happy to oblige.”

Moore’s tweet came after Texas governor Greg Abbott announced on Tuesday that it was “time to reopen Texas 100 percent” and eliminate the statewide mask mandate.
“Everybody that wants a job should be able to get a job. Every business that wants to be open should be open,” Breitbart reports that Abbott said during a meeting at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.
Moore’s comments beg the question: What would their beloved “universal healthcare” look like under liberals?
The left is calling for Texans to not receive the China Virus vaccine because the state re-opened
So much for universal healthcare, I guess?

Texas Gov to End Statewide Mask Mandate, Says Businesses Can Open at 100 Percent
In a move that will undoubtedly please many Texans, Governor Greg Abbott announced that his state would be ending its statewide mask mandate next week. He also called for Texas to “be open 100 percent.”
“Everybody that wants a job should be able to get a job. Every business that wants to be open should be open,” Breitbart reports that Abbott said during a meeting at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce yesterday.
“With the medical advancements of vaccines and antibody therapeutic drugs, Texas now has the tools to protect Texans from the virus,” Abbott said. “We must now do more to restore livelihoods and normalcy for Texans by opening Texas 100 percent. Make no mistake, COVID-19 has not disappeared, but it is clear from the recoveries, vaccinations, reduced hospitalizations, and safe practices that Texans are using that state mandates are no longer needed.”
The Governor said by next week, Texans will have received approximately 7 million shots of the COVID vaccine and that over half of seniors in the state will have received a shot.
“By the end of March, he said, “every senior who wants a vaccine should be able to get one. The vaccine supply continues to increase so rapidly that more and more Texans will soon be eligible to receive a vaccine.”
Abbott is also leaving it up to local officials as to how they’d like to handle if a county encounters a spike in COVID cases. The governor said they can increase some restrictions, however, there would be no fines or criminal penalties for failure to comply with the rules.

1,600 Illegal Immigrants, Including Known Criminals Arrested in Only 3 Days at Border
‘Come one, come all’ was the Democrats’ promise to illegal immigrants during their desperate pursuit to get Biden elected in November. Now, Americans and agencies at the border in particular, are experiencing the repercussions. In only 3 days, more than 1,600 illegal immigrants were arrested in a single Texas border sector.
According to Austin Skero, the head of Border Patrol for Texas’s Del Rio Sector wrote on Twitter, “Over 1,600 arrests in three days for Del Rio Sector agents! These arrests include more than 25 smuggling cases, two criminal aliens, and were comprised of mostly single adults.”
Skero later gave additional information on the situation in a news release Tuesday: “our agents arrested two more sex offenders over the weekend one of whom was convicted of third-degree rape in Kentucky.” Skero added, “that is why it is critically important that Border Patrol Agents are out there, on the border, identifying everyone who crosses our borders illegally.”
The criminal, 49-year-old Roman Gonzalez-Flores of Mexico, was arrested after he illegally entered the United States from Mexico. The Epoch Times reports “officials later determined that he was convicted of the crime in 2004, was sentenced to two years in prison, and was most recently deported in 2021, according to the agency.”
Frighteningly, the agency said 56 illegal immigrants with prior sexual assault convictions have been “encountered” by agents since only October 1 of 2020. Catching criminals is just one of many hurdles border agencies are facing. On Wednesday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed that 13 people died when their SUV collided with a semi-truck. The Ford SUV had roughly 25 women and children of all ages crammed together illegally being smuggled across the border after driving through a hole cut in the border fence.
El Centro Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gregory Bovino stated in a news conference “human smugglers have proven time and again they have little regard for human life.” Bovino warned, “those who may be contemplating crossing the border illegally should pause to think of the dangers that all too often end in tragedy; tragedies our Border Patrol Agents and first responders are unfortunately very familiar with.”
