The COVID regime continues to press harder for more restrictions.
If it were entirely up to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the pandemic would last forever.
But what one Democrat Governor said about COVID has leftists losing their minds.
Jared Polis, the Democrat Governor of Colorado, appears to be fed up with COVID.
Whether Polis’ exasperation with COVID is genuine or he’s simply reading the tea leaves that Americans are sick and tired of the restrictions, he appears to be done with the over-the-top hysteria.
Polis said in an interview:
“The emergency is over . . . You know, public health [officials] don’t get to tell people what to wear; that’s just not their job. Public health [officials] would say to always wear a mask because it decreases flu and decreases [other airborne illnesses]. But that’s not something that you require; you don’t tell people what to wear. You don’t tell people to wear a jacket when they go out in winter and force them to [wear it]. If they get frostbite, it’s their own darn fault.”
That is in stark contrast to the steady drum beat coming from Joe Biden, Dr. Fauci, the corporate-controlled press and the other members of the COVID regime.
They are clearly prolonging the forever-pandemic with nebulous goals for an exit strategy.
Fauci himself has moved the goalposts on the acceptable vaccination for the country, and he’s been cagey about what would constitute a “normal” infection rate for a return to normalcy.
Instead, the public health officials appear to be muddling along with a policy of COVID Zero, which is an utter failure.
At this point, COVID is endemic and will likely be a seasonal illness like the flu.
Comparisons to the flu were verboten for months, but with vaccines, therapeutics, and weaker strains of the virus spreading, peak COVID hysteria must become a thing of the past.
Polis also added that no amount of coercion is going to convince any vaccine holdouts.
“And at this point, I think it’s almost like they made a deliberate decision not to get vaccinated . . . I still encourage everybody who hasn’t been vaccinated to get protected. And for those who are, make sure to get that booster after six months. The data shows it’s important and very likely even more so with this omicron variant.”
Even blue state Governors are getting sick of COVID.
The Democrat establishment doesn’t want to give up its emergency powers, but they might be giving up their seats in the midterm elections if they don’t.
