Governor DeSantis held a blockbuster press conference yesterday titled “Mandate Freedom,” in which he coined what may be my favorite new expression. He was talking about the possibility of new federal mask mandates, and said:
“We see all this stuff, and we see they are not following the science. They are trying to follow a narrative. They are trying to follow an agenda. Here in Florida, we did not — and we will not — allow the dystopian visions of paranoid, hypochondriacs control our health policies, let alone our state.”
Haha! “Dystopian visions of paranoid hypochondriacs!”
That’s money! I can’t wait to use that terrific line someplace.
In this next clip, DeSantis was at his best, sparring off the cuff with a woke activist who insinuated that the Governor was somehow responsible for a recent shooting in Jacksonville. DeSantis wasn’t having any of it, not one little bit.
Next up was Florida’s amazing Surgeon General, Dr. Ladapo. In similar plain language, Dr. Ladapo expressly panned the jabs. Here is a part of his comments:
“There’s a new mRNA covid-19 vaccine coming… there’s essentially no evidence for it… Not only that, there are a lot of red flags. So something you don’t hear much about, but we’ll be talking more about, is there are multiple studies now from around the world — Brazil, Australia, United States — that show that over time these vaccines, these mRNA covid-19 products, actually INCREASE your chances of contracting COVID-19.
That’s not normal.”
No. It’s not normal. It’s not normal at all. In fact, it’s the furthest thing from normal that any of us have ever seen. We passed normal three years ago going about 86 m.p.h. and haven’t looked back.
