|The Orwellian proposals keep piling up, and Ron DeSantis continues to be a hero.|
When Joe Biden hinted weeks ago at the possibility of further lockdowns, DeSantis spoke to the press and said that that would absolutely not be happening in Florida.
When it sounded as if Biden might restrict travel to Florida, DeSantis pledged to resist.
Oh, and by the way: the anti-Florida ghouls are reduced to claiming that DeSantis must be suppressing Florida’s true numbers.
Ha, yeah, that’s plausible! So this theory is that the hospitals in Florida are actually bursting at the seams with COVID patients, but we can’t know that because the official numbers aren’t reliable?
I see. So every single hospital is in on the grand conspiracy, too? Not even one bit of anecdotal evidence of hospital overflow has managed to escape a single hospital?
It’s almost sad what the Doomers are reduced to.
In a way it’s encouraging, though: these people cannot explain Florida’s numbers without dreaming up wild conspiracies. That means they’re implicitly admitting that Florida’s numbers are great. Otherwise they wouldn’t need to be explained away.
Well, now DeSantis is resisting vaccine passports — the Orwellian idea proposed by whoever is running Joe Biden — as well.
“It’s completely unacceptable,” he said. “You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, [or] a theme park? No. So we’re not supportive of that.”
He is pledging to take executive action, as early as today.
As Jeff Deist put it, “No private business or industry would require vaccine passports without state sanction and a strong assist from lapdog media to overcome the terrible PR optics. It’s a sick and crazy idea.”
Meanwhile, check out media coverage of Florida. The New York Times just ran an article about rising “cases” in one of the four states in this chart. Which one do you suppose it was?
(Dark blue is New York, light blue is New Jersey, green is Michigan, and pink is Florida.)
|Yes, they looked at those lines and decided to write an article about Florida’s “rising cases.”|
Meanwhile, back on this planet, here’s a comparison they won’t make (but thanks to @yinonw on Twitter for making it):
