Texas reports zero COVID deaths months after liberal media predicted doomsday as Abbott reopened state

Today Texas reported: * 0 Covid related deathsthe only time that’s happened since data was tracked in March, 2020,” Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted on Sunday night. “* the fewest Covid cases in over 13 月 * the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever * the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 月. ありがとう, テキサンズ!”

BETO O’ROURKE’S CLAIM THAT GOV. GREG ABBOTT ‘KILLING THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS’ ES BACK TO HAUNT HIM

Perhaps most surprised by the Lone Star State’s dramatic drop in COVID cases and deaths are his critics who slammed Abbott’s decision back in March to fully reopen his state.

His critics went far beyond Democrats, who surely made themselves vocal in opposition to Texasreopening with President Biden calling it “ネアンデルタール人の思考” and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke slamming thedeath warrant for Texaswhile accusing the governor ofkilling the people of Texas.

Perhaps the biggest pushback Abbott faced was from the media.

The Washington Post editorial board declared on March 2 that the governoris endangering the health of Texas and beyond.

While everyone is eager for a break from restrictions, 氏. Abbott’s decision is premature and reckless,” the Post wrote at the time. “The governor’s decision may cheer those feeling rebellious, fatigued and impatient with the year-long pandemic restrictions. But the result of opening too soon will be viral spread, and more suffering.

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin agreed, ツイート “Abbott is going to kill more Texanswhile sharing her piece that called on the Biden administration to pull federal relief for the state in response to the early reopening.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle similarly wondered on-air if states like Texas shouldface consequencesfor not following the CDC, 尋ねる “Should they get access to, let’s say, emergency federal help if they end up with a spike in cases or hospitalizations down the road?”

Ruhle’s colleague Joy Reid pushed a racial component, suggesting minorities don’t matter in states like Texas.

There is a term called ‘necropolitics,’ which is essentially the politics of who gets to live and who gets to die, and these states, what they have in common is that they have structures which say that Black and Brown lives matter less,” Reid explained during a panel discussion.

And so all that matters is that Black and Brown people get their behinds into the factory and make me my steaks, make me my stuff, get there and do my nails, work, get back to work now and do the things that I, the comfortable affluent person, 必要. Isn’t that what we’re seeing in states like Texas?” 彼女は続けた.

MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson nodded in agreement, before adding, “‘The Hunger Gameswould be more humanefor minorities.

MSNBC contributor Dr. Kavita Patel wrote an op-ed claiming Abbotthas left Texans to fight Covid aloneand insisting, “It should not be left to regular Texans to provide their own basic protection, but Abbott has left us with no other choice.

Vanity Fair went bold with its headline, “Republican Governors Celebrate COVID Anniversary With Bold Plan to Kill Another 500,000 Americans.

Texas’s and Mississippi’s elected officials are duking it out for the country’s biggest dumbass,” Vanity Fair writer Bess Levin quipped.

Abbott received a barrage of attacks from CNN.

CNN editor-at-large Chris Cillizza called Abbott’s order lifting the mask mandate ahead-scratching, anti-science decision.

Abbott’s move seems entirely motivated by politics rather than public health,” Cillizza insisted on March 3. “Doctors and public health experts continue to warn that letting down our guardand our masksat this point is a major mistake.

Cillizza explained, “Abbott has his eye on two races — 彼の 2022 reelection campaign and the possibility of a bid for the 2024 共和党の大統領指名. And he knows that the key to victory in both is to make sure the Republican base, which remains very loyal to former President Donald Trump, knows and like him. Of late, with the pandemic wearing on, the base has begun to chafe at Abbott somewhat — 確信している, by the former President, that mask-wearing is some sort of assault on their freedom rather than simply a public health measure.

That same day, CNN senior politics writer Zachary Wolf took a page from President Biden’s playbook, 尋ねる, “テキサス州知事の「ネアンデルタール人の思考」の背後にあるもの?”

The truth may be more political maneuvering than Neanderthal thinking, which is more sinister. There are smart people in Texas who know better. The governor just didn’t talk to them,” Wolf wrote.

A separate op-ed published by CNN the next day called Abbott’s decisionappalling.

Abbott’s announcement may have been cheered by some in the business community, but make no mistake: those of us who want to see a thriving economic climate are far from universally on his side,” Ally Energy CEO Katie Mehnert wrote. “代わりに, we recognize that to save lives and build a strong long-term future we have to put science first. And the science does not back up his decision.
