Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rejected the idea of imposing more COVID lockdowns and slammed the notion of living in a “Faucian Dystopia.”

DeSantis’ strong stance came during a speech to the American Legislative Exchange Council’s annual meeting in Utah on Wednesday.

“I think it’s very important that we say unequivocally no to lockdowns, no to school closures, no to restrictions, and no to mandates,” the Republican insisted.

The rejection of lockdowns and mandates comes as the CDC has updated their mask guidance to include fully vaccinated Americans and the White House is pushing mandates.

DeSantis Warns Of ‘Faucian Dystopia’

In his speech, Governor DeSantis also took aim at White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, coining a new phrase in the process.

“Floridians are free to choose – and all Americans should be free to choose – how they govern their affairs, how they take care of themselves and our families,” he said.

DeSantis added that no American, regardless of which state they reside in, should be “consigned to live in a Faucian dystopia in which we’re governed by the whims of bureaucratic authorities who care little for our freedom, little for our aspirations and little for our happiness.”

“No more,” he demanded. “We can’t let it happen going forward.”

Last summer, DeSantis vowed that his state would never engage in lockdowns again.

“We will never do any of these lockdowns again, and I hear people say they’ll shut down the country, and honestly I cringe,” DeSantis said at the time.

The fact that – even as the vaccine is readily available – we’re back at this discussion again nearly a year later should make every American cringe.

 

Urges Americans Get The Vaccine

DeSantis’ office has criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who earlier this week recommended that fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors under certain circumstances, and school children continue to cover up.

The governor’s office claimed the recommendation is “not based in science” and warned that it could have unintended consequences.

“There is no indication that areas with mask mandates have performed any better than areas without mask mandates,” Christina Pushaw told Breitbart News. “In fact, this policy could actually backfire.”

Pushaw explained that “Mandating masks for vaccinated people erodes public trust and confidence in the effectiveness of the vaccines.”

DeSantis, despite the warnings of a ‘Faucian dystopia,’ has urged Floridians to get the vaccine.

DeSantis touted the effectiveness of the jab, noting that “over 95%” of people being hospitalized for COVID currently “are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated at all.”

“And so these vaccines are saving lives, they are reducing mortality,” he relayed.
