Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and their Democrat friends may have thought they were cute when they started arresting people for not wearing masks in the White House and Capitol, but House Republicans stood in defiance of this tyrannical edict on Thursday when the House GOP protested the mask mandate with a maskless march through the halls of the Senate.
Recently, the Biden administration — in a charge led by Nancy Pelosi — instructed the Capitol Police to arrest anyone who wore masks in the House of Representatives and the White House. The Senate, however, does not have a similar rule. Fox News reports that Republican lawmakers and staffers ditched the masks and marched onto the Senate floor:
Roy was joined by around 50 of his House colleagues, including Reps. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., Kat Cammack, R-Fla., and Byron Donalds, R-Fla.
“Congressman Roy said it succinctly on the House floor Wednesday: ‘We have a crisis at our border and we’re playing footsie with mask mandates in the people’s house,’” a Roy spokesperson told Fox News in an email.
“The fact that Speaker Pelosi is willing to have vaccinated staffers arrested for not complying with her mask mandate while the border remains wide open tells you all you need to know,” they continued. “This isn’t about science. It’s about politics and control.”
Cawthorn told Fox News in a Thursday statement that the Republicans who left the House chamber to protest the mask mandate “took a firm stance on individual liberty.”
“Along with the majority of Americans, we rejected the totalitarian, hypocritical, and arbitrary ruling from Speaker Pelosi demanding masks be worn in the House,” Cawthorn said. “My staff should never fear arrest because they practice individual responsibility.”
For her part, Pelosi denies any responsibility for this rule. A spokesman old Fox News that “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police.” Watch a video of the protest below:
