Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) urges Americans to stand up to “petty tyrants” using “fear and propaganda” to control society, economy, and children, as he continues to criticize the health official’s anti-science guidance.
“It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us,” Paul said in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday.”We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again.”
Paul, who practiced medicine for 30 plus years, blasted Pelosi (D-CA) and Biden for their unconditional surrender to the coronavirus and the arbitrary guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Sen. Paul continues:
Nancy Pelosi, you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport. We will not wear a mask. We will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk with power reign over the Capitol.
President Biden, we will not accept your agencies mandates or your reported moves toward a lockdown. No one should follow the CDC’s anti-science mask mandates. If you want to shut down federal agencies again, some of which aren’t even back to work yet, I will stop every bill coming through the Senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don’t come back to work in person.
Sen. Paul was referring to two events – one which Pelosi ordered anyone not wearing face masks on Capitol grounds to be arrested by Capitol Police, the other when the White House stated President Biden would obey the CDC – even if they wanted more coronavirus lockdowns.
Paul went on to slam union bosses and school systems that were halting in-person learning and said Americans would not allow them to “do more harm to our children again this year.”
“Children are not at anymore risk from COVID than they are from the seasonal flu. Every adult who works in school has already had the vaccine or had their chance to get vaccinated. There is no reason for mask mandates, part-time schools, or any lockdown measures,” he said. “Children are falling behind in schools and are being harmed physically and psychologically by the tactics that you have used to keep them from the classrooms during the last year. We won’t allow it again.”
Paul proposed punishing school systems that deny full-time-in-person learning by defunding them, and parents would have choices when the money goes for their child’s education to remedy school overreach.
“Do I sound fed up to you? That’s because I am,” he said. “I have been telling everyone for a year now that Dr. Fauci and other public health bureaucrats were not following the science, and I’ve been proven right time and time again. But I’m not the only one whose fed up.”
Paul said he could not go anywhere without people coming up to him and thanking him for standing up “for actual science. For standing up for freedom. For standing against mandates, lockdowns, and bureaucratic power grabs.”
“I think the tide is turning, As more and more people are willing to stand up,” he said. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to the unions and school boards. I see brave moms standing up and saying, ‘My kids need to go back to school in person.’ I see members of Congress refusing to comply with petty tyrant Pelosi.”
“We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads,” he continued. “Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children? Or will we stand together and say ‘Absolutely not, not this time. I choose freedom.’”
