By this point in the coronavirus pandemic, it’s become clear that all of the lockdowns and the mask mandates are pure political theater. They’re a ruse to keep power and control over the masses by using fear to urge folks to give up liberty in exchange for a false sense of security.
Nothing makes that more evident than when liberals violate their own COVID protocols. Like when Speaker Nancy Pelosi opted to go sans mask at a hair salon.
That’s just one of many.
And it seems that we can now add Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo to the list of Democrats who have hypocritically violated their own recommendations. And boy is she taking heat for it.
Raimondo was photographed in public at a wine and paint event last Friday evening. This came just days after posting a message on Twitter telling her constituents to obey the state’s “pause” on social gatherings.

It’s week two of our pause. I know it's been hard, but I want to thank every Rhode Islander who's following our guidance. Please, stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with. Together, we can turn our case numbers around.

Raimondo’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner but told another outlet, “The governor had dinner at a local restaurant with her husband, and had her mask on anytime she was not eating/drinking.”
While some residents expressed support for the governor when asked about her outing, several also expressed sharp criticism, including one woman who responded, “Shame on you, Gina.”
The day after Raimondo was photographed dining out in public, Rhode Island’s Health Director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting Raimondo and other officials to quarantine themselves.
This is all about power and control. How far can they push us before we push back? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. And the answer is, pretty dang far. Our Founding Fathers would have never put up with this kind of baloney.
They’ve convinced people to be terrified of this illness, along with tricking them into thinking that the government can provide them with protection, getting folks to hand over their liberty for the illusion of safety.
