Texas is being slammed for rolling back its COVID restrictions. The Lone Star State says the mask mandate is gone. Businesses can operate at 100 percent.
Now, one thing that’s lost in the liberal media hysteria is that you can still wear a mask in Texas. Joe Biden slammed the state for its “neanderthal thinking” regarding loosening its COVID protocols, despite COVID cases in the US dropping 77 percent over the past six weeks.
There’s a dirty secret the liberal media, Democrats, and the Fauci cultists don’t want you to know, but we’ll get to that in a bit.
Right now, Connecticut decided to announce it will be loosening its COVID restrictions as well. So, will they be smeared for being irresponsible Neanderthals who want to kill people? Will Joe Biden attack them publicly?
Probably not, though Biden is about to eat it for his remarks since a blue state is pretty much doing what Texas did, with one exception (via Hartford Courant):
Gov. Ned Lamont on Thursday announced that he will soon roll out an expansive reopening plan for Connecticut, including allowing restaurants to operate at full capacity, loosening rules on sports and entertainment venues and lifting the travel ban.
Most of the changes will go into effect on March 19, with several more coming down the line over the following two weeks. The decision comes as President Joe Biden warns states not to move fast on reopening. Lamont said the decision was a result of
Connecticut’s dropping COVID-19 metrics.
Under the reopening plan, restaurant, retail stores, houses of worship and a number of other places will be allowed to reopen at full capacity, but with masks and social distancing requirements as well as a curfew for restaurants. Bars must remain closed.
The plan will also allow sports to fully resume, including tournament play. Travelers will still be recommended to quarantine after arriving in Connecticut, but they will not be required to do so.
So, Connecticut is pretty much open. The mask mandate remaining in place is a minor difference, but it’s virtually no different than what Texas is doing but this will be allowed to skate by. Only Democrats can reopen their states. That’s the rule, but it doesn’t negate the fact that Biden shot his mouth off and now will probably have to come up with some word salad to explain how this is different when it isn’t.
