Yes, you read the headline right. There is a Democrat backed bill in NY that would give Fredo Cuomo the ability to lock up anyone he thinks has Covid. It says:
“Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor…may order the removal and/or detention of such a person.”
The irony of the bill is that the person most guilty of posing an “imminent and significant threat to the public health” was Fredo (and other Dem Governors) who by executive orders forced Covid positive patients into Nursing Homes, in effect, giving all the residents of said Nursing Homes a death sentence. Thousands died. Was it negligence or did they simply do what far left socialists do – culling the herd. After all, what’s a few thousand old people when the illiberal left and their Planned Parenthood murders a million unborn babies every year?
Are we living in Communist China or the former USSR? Yes, comrade. I suppose carried to its logical conclusion, the Gov can come into any of his enemies houses in the dark of night, and under the pretense of the “public good” they can spirit you away legally. This is what you get when you give Democrats and Socialists power. They become tyrants. The way I look at this is like the cartoon I remember about a white hunter who was captured by black cannibals in deepest darkest Africa (yes, they weren’t woke then and they actually depicted the fact that there were black cannibals in Africa and there were white game hunters). They were placed in a pot of water and a fire underneath the pot was lit and the white hunter ignorant of his situation – said, “What’s that cooking, I wonder what’s for dinner?” The answer of course is that for all of the ignorant and brainwashed fools who think that socialism and diminishing rights are OK, even in a pandemic, I will only say – It is you!
