White House press secretary, Kaleigh McEnany spoke to Fox News on Nov. 18 and referred to measures imposed by some Democratic governors to combat the CCP Virus that she called Orwellian and said “not the American way” of doing things.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, some Democratic governors like Kate Brown of Oregon imposed a mandatory face mask inside homes and banned meetings of more than 6 people by threatening arrests and fines if those rules are not followed.
“I think a lot of the guidelines you’re seeing are Orwellian, the American people know how to protect their health. We dealt with COVID for many months,” McEnany said.
While restrictions vary from county to county based on the numbers of infections each has, California will impose a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew on all “nonessential” businesses beginning this Friday. Outdoor restaurant capacity will be reduced to 50%, and for other businesses 25% will be the limit.
“That’s not the American way,” McEnany stressed. “We don’t lose our freedom in this country. We make responsible health decisions as individuals.”
The measures taken by the governors are in response to safety guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that suggest the use of masks and social distancing, to prevent the spread of the CCP Virus.
However, after more than 8 months of dealing with the disease and based on data from the CDC, it is publicly known that the disease is dangerous for people over 65 years and with pre-existing conditions. For healthy people under 65, the disease has the same effects as the common flu.
Last Monday, the Michigan Restaurant and Hotel Association also sued the Department of Health and Human Services for new restrictions on the industry that virtually prevent them from working.
Dr. Scott Atlas, medical adviser for Trump’s coronavirus team, a staunch opponent of the quarantine measures, expressed concern about the increase in mental health problems among children and youth, which increased overall by 30% compared to 2019.
“I don’t want to see the figure that one in four Americans, college students, age 18-24, thought of killing themselves in June because of the lockdown,” Atlas told Fox News.
Thanksgiving recalls the story of the first pilgrims who came to the shores of Massachusetts from England with the mission of establishing an ideal community with Christian values.
After one of the English-speaking Native Americans was able to establish relationships between the chiefs of other tribes and the newcomers, the pilgrims and Native Americans held a three-day harvest festival. The pilgrims brought turkeys, corn, and fish, and the natives freshly hunted deer to the table.
The festival has a deep religious meaning, gratitude among men and gratitude to heaven for prosperity on earth. It is a time of reverence for Americans.
Perhaps many of these Democratic leaders do not really believe in God and surreptitiously try to restrict Americans from reviving their spiritual side on this holiday.
