Remember masks? Democrats have spent the entire pandemic yelling at the rest of us if we choose not to wear one — especially in areas heavily trafficked by people, like airports and especially on planes. But when Texas Democrats fled the state in an effort to block voting on bills that would protect the citizens of the state from unethical actions in elections, they all decided to skip the masks. Now five maskless Texas Dems caught COVID after fleeing the state to avoid a vote.
Over 50 Democrats fled from Austin to Washington D.C. — something that will lead to their arrests when they return to Texas — at a cost of $100,000. The private charter planes were filled to the brim with traitors whose only goal was to block democracy from happening. And many of the traitors on them? They chose to completely skip the masks they used to shame the rest of us for more than a year despite federal guidelines saying they should be worn “onboard commercial aircraft.”
The Hill reports that a growing number of those Democrats gave caught the Wuhan Flu, with the number increasing from three to five following additional testing. The Texas House Democratic Caucus announced the new cases on Sunday:
“In light of some positive COVID-19 tests over the weekend, the House Democratic Caucus has decided to go beyond CDC guidance and provide daily rapid tests for all Members and staff in Washington D.C. for this week,” the caucus said in its statement.
“As part of this precautionary testing, today two additional Members who were fully vaccinated tested positive,” the caucus continued, saying that all of the members who tested positive either do not have symptoms or have only mild symptoms and feel good.
The Sunday statement did not include the names of the caucus members who tested positive, but state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer (D) confirmed that he was one of the two members who tested positive on Sunday.
“This morning, I received a positive COVID-19 rapid antigen test result. I am fully vaccinated, and had tested negative on Friday and Saturday. I am quarantining until I test negative, and I am grateful to be only experiencing extremely mild symptoms,” Martinez Fischer said in a statement shared on Twitter.
“Just as these new variants sweeping the country are more aggressive than ever, the wave of anti-voter legislation in this country is worse than we’ve seen in generations. That’s why, I will continue the fight for voting rights with every single fiber of my being,” he added.
The COVID diagnoses, of course, give Democrats another excuse to stay out of Texas (and avoid a vote on a bill they know will pass if they let it happen) for another 10 or more days as they separate and self-quarantine.
Oddly, not a single Democrat has spoken out against this behavior despite repeated admonishments by Democrats targeting anyone who so much as went outside without a mask earlier this year.
All of these Democrats who flew maskless should resign immediately and allow someone who takes their job seriously to legislate in Texas.
