Democrats claim to believe in science and safety, but their actions often suggest otherwise.
Five Texas Democrats have now tested positive for COVID-19 as a direct result of a childish publicity stunt. Their recklessness may even have endangered the life of President Joe Biden, who has presided over nearly 200,000 American deaths from the virus—the equivalent of 83 Pearl Harbor attacks.
The Democratic lawmakers fled the state last week in an attempt to shut down the state legislature and prevent the Republican majority from passing crucial election reforms. Aboard their privately chartered plane to Washington, D.C., the Dems shunned the Biden administration's safety guidelines by refusing to wear masks, a reckless decision that could cost them up to $1.75 million in fines.
More than 50 Democrats made the trip to the nation's capital, where they posted photos on social media and posed as martyrs to a pointless cause. After effectively filibustering the Texas state legislature, the group lobbied congressional Democrats to abolish the Senate filibuster in order to ease the passage of radical left-wing legislation at the national level.
The Texas Dems even met with Vice President Kamala Harris, who described their frivolous antics as an example of "extraordinary courage and commitment." Throwing a public tantrum, she said, was "as American as apple pie." Following the meeting, Harris went to Walter Reed Medical Center for what was described as a "routine" visit.
Biden, who will turn 79 in November, is in the demographic (elderly male) most at risk of dying from COVID-19. Although the president promised to end the pandemic, nearly one third of U.S. deaths from the virus (about 608,000 in total) have occurred on his watch. On average, more than 1,000 Americans have died each day since Biden took office. Many experts believe he is directly responsible.
