Friday on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized the reason for mask mandates, arguing that they were not based upon science.
“It has to do with submission,” he said. “There’s never been any proof of spreading occasions in the schools. The kids do extremely well with this. The idea that we’re going to put masks on the kids, and then we’re going to punish the kids who, for their own medical decision-making or their parents, choose not to send to this required. To me, it’s the most significant, basically advertisement and support to get out of the federal government schools. Go to independent schools, if you can afford them, teach your kids at home. However do not send to the state, do not submit to the federal government.”
“Not just they are making you worry unless they’re going to indoctrinate you with Important Race Theory,” Paul continued. “So, it’s a win-win if you leave the schools if you’re able to. And there’s been more of an exodus from the government schools this year than any other year since they’re not following science. They simply want you to be your– you become part of the collective, you belong to the hive, do as you’re told, don’t think, your kids don’t come from you, they come from the state. These are all arguments for trying to get away the schools if you can.”
The Kentucky Republican politician likewise revealed he was pushing a costs that would end the federal government’s mask required on industrial airliners.
“I’m presenting legislation that will get rid of the federal mandate,” Paul stated. “This taken place by executive order by President Biden, and the airlines conceal behind it. I, for one, am a regular tourist. I’m sick and fed up with getting on the airplane. Instead of them thanking me for purchasing a seat and purchasing a ticket, they inform me I could go to jail for not using a mask. Then they tell me I could go to jail if I’m unable to unlock. Then they say, God forbid, you brought a drink on board so you could relax since of all the mandates. They’ll put you in prison for that too.”
“So, I desire them to get– I want to get on the airplane, and somebody thanked me for buying a ticket instead of telling me 3 different ways they’re going to send me to jail if I do not submit to some required,” he continued. “But they hide behind the federal mandate. They type of imitate, oh, it’s not us. Well, Airline companies aren’t doing this to you. It’s your federal government. They pled for this, the airlines. And the important things is, they pled for our cash. They might fly in their planes. And now they’re begging to continue these requireds. The requireds require to end. They’re not working. You’re most likely to get it in their home than you are to get it on a plane.”
