Columbia, SC — South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster told the radical left no amid their pressure to force him to enact a mask mandate. The mainstream media and Democrats have pressured McMaster to re-enact a mask mandate for his state as cases of COVID-19 rise.
McMaster said that such a move simply makes no sense. He shared that he will not reenact a mask mandate, citing lower hospitalization rates with the Delta variant.
According to The State, McMaster said, “Shutting our state down, closing schools and masking the children, who have no choice, for the government to to mask children who have no choice, to protect adults who do have a choice, is the wrong thing to do. And we’re not going to do.”
He continued, “We’re not going to shut our state down as other states did mandating masks is not the answer, personal responsibility is the answer.”
McMaster did share that now was a great time to receive the vaccination if someone was not vaccinated. He shared that vaccines are available and do seem to help with severe illness in those who are vaccinated.
McMaster joins the list of Republican governors who continue to stand firm against reinstating mask mandates and restrictions on their states. Governors from Texas and Florida have made headlines with their comments. Florida’s Ron DeSantis has even gotten into a back and forth exchange with the White House over his stance.
Mainstream media and the radical left have ratcheted up pressure on Republican governors to reinstate mask mandates as the cases have risen. They have chosen to run with the narrative that mandatory vaccines and masks should be required of all Americans.
Former President Donald Trump weighed in on the issue as well. He shared that the Biden administration continues to allow illegal immigrants, many who are infected with COVID, to cross the southern border without issue. He shared that this was not placing American interests first.
