One would think that even the most radical mask guards would have come back to reality after mask requirements ended in deep blue states like California, Illinois and New York.
Even Saturday Night Live poked fun at the 2-year mask requirement last week.
A group of friends discuss mask regulations, vaccines and COVID over dinner.
On Wednesday, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sparked hyper-COVID enforcers who took to Twitter and claimed the popular Republican governor had yelled at students and pressured them to take off their masks.
Well, facts are usually a fun thing to do when exposing lies, but for those who are avid progressive Kool-Aid drinkers, they don’t even care anymore.
In the video, which critics are complaining about, the governor can clearly be heard telling students they have the opportunity to remove their masks.
What caused the uproar was when he spoke at the University of South Florida on Wednesday, DeSantis told a group of reported high school students not having to wear face masks. “You don’t have to wear those masks. Please take them off. To be honest, it doesn’t do any good. We need to stop this COVID theatre. So if you want to wear it, fine, but that’s ridiculous,” he said.
The students then remove their masks, with at least one student smiling afterwards.
This is consistent with the direction in which the state has moved to allow people to make their own health decisions.
For example, Governor Deasntais and Florida’s Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, recorded a 10-minute video a few years ago in which they discussed the FL Department of Health’s new guidance for businesses, which recommends that companies require employees to wear masks.
These recommendations advise against wearing masks in community settings.
“There is simply no evidence that this is beneficial and it is obviously very uncomfortable‘ DeSantis said.
Ladapo added: “So many of us are excited about the end of staff having to walk around in masks in hot restaurants when customers are comfortably seated. There has never been any evidence that it is beneficial.”
In response to DeSantis’ comments to the students, Democratic California Representative Ted Lieu suggested that DeSantis “Anger Management Courses.” Again, the video doesn’t show anyone yelling.
Looks like Governor DeSantis needs some aggression classes.
Any elected official who feels the need to yell at students is weak, insecure, and full of anger. We got a glimpse @GovRonDeSantis‘ Heart today and it’s ugly.

Former Obama spokesman Kevin Cate said the footage shows “the real” DeSantis. Other left-leaning individuals and organizations took to Twitter to claim DeSantis bullied students and suffered a meltdown.
Yahoo! also claimed that DeSantis “whipped” students, despite what is clearly seen in the video.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes then claimed that DeSantis took away the student’s freedom of choice and verbally abused high school students.

Responding to tweets from the left criticizing the governor’s actions, conservatives are praising DeSantis for following the science, encouraging youth to return to normal life.
Blue Check Avi Yemini tweeted:
“This new video from Florida’s Ron DeSantis is triggering the right people. The governor is urging high school students behind him at the presser to ‘stop the Covid theatre’ Leftists are angry at the CHOICE he has given them. Legendary.”

So there you have it folks, Gov. DeSantis doesn’t care about the sentiments of radical leftists, he cares about the health and safety of students, especially in his home state of Florida.
