(PresidentialInsider.com)- Juan Williams, the far-left news commentator who regularly appears on Fox News, is once again using his opinion column published by The Hill to push false narratives about the Republicans. This time, he is endorsing President Joe Biden’s authoritarian crackdown on American liberty and his unprecedented vaccine mandate that could potentially force millions of Americans out of work.
In a piece published on Monday, Williams claims that the Republicans’ opposition to mask and vaccine mandates should bring “shame” on the party. He described how House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy was in the wrong by tweeting “NO VACCINE MANDATES.”
He then wrongly claimed that there is “no argument about vaccines preventing death from COVID.”
Well, first off, people do have arguments and questions about the vaccine. With an increasing number of “breakthrough” cases of people contracting COVID-19 despite being vaccinated, people rightly want answers from the nation’s public health officials.
Secondly, what Williams fails to acknowledge is that people simply have the right to choose whether or not they take the vaccine – and President Biden doesn’t have the authority to discriminate against people who choose not to take it.
“But going into the 2022 congressional midterm elections, McCarthy and incendiary figures like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) appear to think there is political gold in opposing mandates calling for vaccines and testing,” he continues, again failing to understand that opposing mandates isn’t a matter of winning elections but protecting the rights of American citizens.
He goes on to complain about Republican Governor of South Carolina Henry McMaster who vowed to “protect the liberty and livelihood of every South Carolinian” and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and who threatened to fine his state’s local school officials if they violate his ban on mask mandates.
Does Williams realize just how out of touch he is on this stuff?
