In a recent tweet alluding to the pending lockdowns that could be instituted by the Biden administration, Texas Congressman and former Navy SEAL, Dan Crenshaw told everyone his thoughts on how to respond.
“If the CDC, Biden, or any local leader recommends another lockdown, don’t comply. Businesses. Schools. Restaurants. No one should comply,” he said in a tweet last week.
Crenshaw’s tweet was accompanied by a video of Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answering questions regarding lockdowns and school closures.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked why the American people should trust the President when he says there will be no new lockdowns, given that he also said if you are vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.
Jean-Pierre’s response: “well, because we listen to the scientists, we listen to the expert. This is about a public health situation. This is not about politics, at all.”
Doocy fired back, “If the scientist come to you at some point down the line, and say to you ‘it is our opinion that there should be shutdowns and there should be school closures,’ you would do that?”
She repeated her previous answer, “Well, like I said, we listen to the CDC, and the expert and their guidance.”
Crenshaw stated succinctly that should such measures be taken, which many believe border on tyranny, we should not comply.
“Look, the vaccines are actually effective. I actually believe the FDA’s data on this. Not only are they effective, but the FDA still stands by their assertion and their assessment of the data that says that the vaccines here in the United States are effective against transmission including the delta variant,” he said speaking with Fox News’ Primetime.
“So the CDC is in direct confrontation with the FDA. I believe the FDA on this one. I think they tend to be more risk-averse, and so they tend to get the science a little bit more right, more often. And I think the CDC has been politicized in this case, I think, from pressure from the administration,” he added.
