Texas Gets Last Laugh on The Left, As The State Records No Covid Deaths

As usual, the Left gets it wrong.

Every once in a while it’s good to be reminded of the efficacy of Democrats and the Left. This is one of those times.

FNC: “Texas has a lot to celebrate this week after reaching zero COVID deaths for the first time since the pandemic began. Perhaps most surprised by the Lone Star State’s dramatic drop in COVID cases and deaths are his critics who slammed Abbott’s decision back in March to fully reopen his state.”

“Today Texas reported: * 0 Covid related deaths–the only time that’s happened since data was tracked in March, 2020,” Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted on Sunday night. “* the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months * the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever * the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months. Thanks, Texans!”

But Joe Biden called his policies on masks, Covid, and vaccinations “Neanderthal thinking” and former Rep. and lanky imbecile Beto O’Rourke slammed the governor’s policies as the “death warrant for Texas,” while accusing the governor of “killing the people of Texas.” Will they apologize and say they were wrong? No, they will go on hoping Texans die so they can score political points.

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

The biggest pushback was from the press. The soy boys at the Washington Post editorial board said on March 2 that the governor “is endangering the health of Texas and beyond. While everyone is eager for a break from restrictions, Mr. Abbott’s decision is premature and reckless. The governor’s decision may cheer those feeling rebellious, fatigued and impatient with the year-long pandemic restrictions. But the result of opening too soon will be viral spread, and more suffering.” Wrong.

Washington Post columnist and obvious crack addict Jennifer Rubin agreed, tweeting “Abbott is going to kill more Texans.” Really wrong.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle similarly asked if states like Texas should “face consequences” for not bending knee to the CDC, wondering, “Should they get access to, let’s say, emergency federal help if they end up with a spike in cases or hospitalizations down the road?” So wrong to be mortifying. Life is cheap to Stephanie Ruhle.

Joy Reid race hustled, saying minorities don’t count in states like Texas. “There is a term called ‘necropolitics,’ which is essentially the politics of who gets to live and who gets to die — and these states, what they have in common is that they have structures which say that Black and Brown lives matter less. And so all that matters is that Black and Brown people get their behinds into the factory and make me my steaks, make me my stuff, get there and do my nails, work, get back to work now and do the things that I, the comfortable affluent person, need. Isn’t that what we’re seeing in states like Texas?” The Queen of Wrong. Love the way she claims to speak for Latins. Uh, no. We think for ourselves. At least we of South American and Cuban heritage do.

MSNBC shill Jason Johnson agreed, adding, “‘The Hunger Games’ would be more humane” for minorities.” Ah, so he is an expert on all minorities? This is just another example of general Democrat and Leftist accuracy. Be forewarned.
