Democrats may be determined to wreck Thanksgiving for millions of Americans with their tyrannical lockdowns and restrictions but some people are pushing back.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany triggered Twitter world by blasting the push by authoritarian Democrat governors and mayors to roll out their second round of lockdowns just in time for the holiday season.
McEnany appeared on Fox News where she denounced the “Orwellian” measures that power-crazed Dems have imposed including limiting the size of turkey day dinners, travel restrictions, forced masking, and even threats of arrest.
Her remarks come at a time when the corrupt media is whipping up another wave of COVID mass hysteria to provide cover for the dastardly and cowardly acts of Democrat officials who have exploited the virus to conduct themselves in a manner befitting of third-world despots.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday called state restrictions meant to slow the spread of coronavirus around Thanksgiving “Orwellian” even as she acknowledged the Trump administration has ceded power to the governors to impose such measures.
“A lot of the guidelines you’re seeing are Orwellian,” McEnany said in an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
“The American people know how to protect their health. We’ve dealt with COVID for many months,” she added. “But it’s Orwellian in a place like Oregon to say if you gather in numbers more than six we might come to your house and arrest you and you get 30 days of jail time. That’s not the American way.”
McEnany, who tested positive for the coronavirus last month, pointed to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, which are urging Americans to avoid holding Thanksgiving gatherings with people who do not live in their household in order to minimize the risks of spreading the coronavirus.
The press secretary previously tweeted criticism of Oregon’s Democrat Governor Kate Brown who has gone as far as to threaten to send her goons into people’s homes to carry out arrests during Thanksgiving dinner.
The media’s declared winner of the presidential election Joe Biden came out this week in favor of the Draconian holiday restrictions, a key indicator that he will implement a national lockdown if he is installed into the White House.
Former Vice President Joe Biden suggested that Americans limit their gatherings on Thanksgiving and adhere to coronavirus protocols in their private residences, citing experts who, according to the former vice president, recommend gatherings of “five people, maximum ten people” who are “socially distanced, wearing masks.”
Biden, whom the media have declared president-elect, detailed his view on holiday gatherings during a Monday press conference in Wilmington, Delaware, urging Americans to adhere to the advice of “health experts.”
“What is your message to people who are considering, for example, getting together with their families and others for Thanksgiving? Would you urge people to reconsider their plans?” a reporter asked.
“Here’s what I would do. Let me tell you what health experts have said to me,” Biden began.
“They strongly urge that, if, in fact, we’re going to have Thanksgiving with anyone, that we limit it to maximum, maximum, they suggest five people, maximum 10 people, socially distanced, wearing masks, and people who have quarantined,” he explained.
Biden said he has been discussing how his own family will handle Thanksgiving this year and told reporters that they have successfully “narrowed down which family members” will attend, adding, “and that they were tested, recently tested within 24 hours.”
He then urged the American people to “think about this” before gathering for Thanksgiving.
“I would strongly urge for the sake — not just your sake, for the sake of your children, your mother, your father, your sisters, your brothers, whoever you get together at Thanksgiving — think about this,” he said, stressing that Americans should limit their holiday gatherings to ten people.
“There should be no group more than ten people in one room at one time. I mean, inside the home. That’s what they’re telling me. They’re telling me, making sure that that’s the case,” he said before emphasizing his belief in the importance of masks.
As if the first round of job-destroying Democrat lockdowns weren’t enough, the cruelty of imposing another round in order to destroy a joyous holiday that has long been an American tradition is morale crushing and should qualify as cruel and unusual punishment.
And it’s pretty damned un-American as well.
