Democrat mayors have had a field day over the last eighteen months of the CoVid-19 situation with their lockdowns and their mask mandates. Their dictatorial tendencies have really shown through as we’ve seen from such people as Bill de Blasio of New York City and Lori Lightfoot of Chicago. These people are power mad.
But the Democrat mayor of one major city made a surprising decision in relation to the CoVid-19 situation, a decision which is completely out of step with her fellow Democrats. Mimi Nguyen Ly writes,
New Orleans officials on Wednesday issued an advisory telling people they should wear mask indoors, citing an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state.
Everyone—vaccinated or unvaccinated—is being asked to wear a mask indoors when with people who are not members of their immediate family.
Mayor LaToya Cantrell said that instead of an indoor mask mandate, the indoor mask advisory is “putting more responsibility on residents in our community that have yet to be vaccinated.”
The announcement comes two months after the city lifted its mask mandate.
Yes, you read that right. While Cantrell is towing the Democrat party line of recommending masking indoors when not around immediate family, she is not trying to require people in New Orleans to do it. She’s treating them like adults.
That’s completely contrary to Democrat Party and leftist political thinking which teaches, basically, that individuals aren’t competent to be able to run their own lives without some liberal government bureaucrat wiping their bottoms and burping them. It’s disgusting and insulting thinking on the part of the overwhelming majority of Democrats.
But good for Cantrell for doing the right thing and allowing adults to be adults, free of government compulsion. That kind of free thinking is something that Americans under the thumbs of Democrat politicians could use to experience.
