Texas Governor Greg Abbott made a significant announcement this week and it has liberals absolutely losing their minds.
On Tuesday, Abbott announced that within a week, the state of Texas will be completely open and all mask mandates are no longer in effect.
It took about 10 seconds for Democrats and liberals to go on the attack.
Texas is Open for Business
Texas has been at the forefront of the pandemic in terms of being able to keep its economy open during this pandemic.
Abbott, like Governor DeSantis in Florida, has been very aggressive in terms of opening up businesses and allowing people to make their own decisions.
To that point, Abbott is lifting the state mandates and letting businesses go to 100 percent again.
However, he was not downplaying the virus at all, simply stating that Texans are already doing what is needed and don’t need the government to hold their hand…
To that point, I would still expect some businesses to ask customers to wear masks as they have been throughout the pandemic.
I would also expect many people to continue to wear the masks and take preventive measures on their own to ensure a new surge does not hit the state.
After Abbott made the statement, among the first to blast him was California Governor Gavin Newsom, which is a complete joke.
Gavin has destroyed California during this pandemic and is on the verge of being recalled, so his comments can pretty much get filed in the trash can.
Local Texas leaders were also not happy about Abbott lifting the state mandates.
For example, Austin Mayor Steve Adler, a Democrat, stated, “Wearing a face mask while in public or within closed spaces remains one of the most effective, proactive measures anyone can take to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control.
“We as a state should be guided by science and data, which says we should keep the mask mandate. Too much is at stake to compromise the positive outcomes we have seen with over-confidence. Our priorities should continue to focus on the further opening of schools and businesses, but we must do everything we can to ensure the success of those two goals.”
Hollywood also lashed out, with one star calling the GOP a “death cult.”

You better believe liberals will be watching Texas very closely and if there is any major spike, they will try to put Abbott’s head on a spike.
I cannot stress enough, however, that if people still want to wear a mask, then wear one… nobody is stopping you.
