Mitch McConnell Threatens More Lockdowns if More Americans Don’t Get Vaccinated

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a so-called “conservative” when it’s convenient for him, recently issued a statement warning Americans that lockdowns could return in the fall if more people don’t get the vaccine.

“These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we´re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for — that we went through last year,” the Republican senator said in a news conference on Tuesday. “This is not complicated.”

There are a couple of things to take away from this statement. In the video below, you’ll see other prominent figures in Republican circles making similar statements — including Florida Governor Ron Desantis and Fox News host Sean Hannity. But, there is an important difference. McConnell is the only person in this clip threatening to use the heavy hand of government to get what he wants. Desantis, by contrast, is advocating for vaccinations while also having pledged to never do that again.

Florida did in fact place restrictions on businesses and implemented mask mandates. Unlike California in New York, however, citizens weren’t severely punished for breaking those rules, and counties were largely left to their own to decide which policies were best for them. The state was effectively open for business within months. Governor Desantis now admits the initial lockdown was a mistake on his part. Good on him.

When it comes to vaccines, Democrats and RINO Republicans have taken virtually the same approach — threatening the American people into accepting what is essentially an experimental drug.

We have a very simple take on vaccines here — if you want one, get one. If you don’t want one, don’t get one. As a free American, this choice is entirely up to you. Americans take risks every day. At this point, you put yourself in more danger by commuting to work than you do by taking a stroll through the grocery store without a face mask on. That said, if you feel like you’re vulnerable, by all means — mask up. The line we’re drawing in the sand is this: you don’t get to force Americans that don’t agree with you to bend to your will.

Mitch McConnell is setting himself up to learn this lesson the hard way. Here’s the full statement from his press conference.

    1. Who in God’s name does this man think he is? He’s not God! He’s not a king! He’s an elected official who needs to be ousted!!! I doubt anyone forced him to get the polio vaccine years ago! This is another one of the RINO’s who accused DJT of being a tyrant! More lockdowns are simply going to make even more people obstinate to your tyrannical agenda! God bless America!!!!

  1. “McConnell sounds like a liberal” That could be because there is no difference between a socialist dem and a RINO! So what’s your point?

    1. Well I guess Pelsoi Has Gotten To Him to He Ought To Join The Democrats Cause He Must Be Getting Scared At What They Are DoingTo His Doing to His Party They’re Not Big Enough To Fight Back. And God Forgive Me Hope All Democrats Catch It See What Getting Vaccinated Does For Them.Maybe When Gets FDA Approved More Will Be Willing

      1. I’m rolling in the aisles…the FDA might be just as saintly competent as the FBI, NSA. WHO, CDC, IRS, CCP, etc…the entire alphabet of authority. Authoritarians rule far & wide as we sleepily let them.

  2. We NEED TO REMOVE MITCH MCCONNELL FROM HIS POSITION AND JOB , THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN OUR GOVERNMENT HAVE NO INTEREST IN HELP US THE AMERICANS WHO ELECTED THEM TO FIX THIS COUNTRY PROBLEM, BUT INSTEAD THEY DEMAND THINGS THAT WE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON’T WANT AND THEN THEY THREATENED US. WELL IM SICK OF EVERY WRINKLED UP PERSON WHO HAS BEEN IN OUR GOVERNMENT FOR MORE THEN 49 YEARS ITS TIME THAT THEY RETIRE AND PAY WHAT THEY OWE BACK TO OUR COUNTRY.

    1. Lorna, Wow, agreed by over 150 million Americans I’m sure. All laughter aside , even they are eating their own.!!!!

  3. Lets start with Mitch McConnells state first and see how that plays out for him. If all goes well and the citizens dont egg his house and tell him to got to you know where then we can consider it for the rest of the country. Till then Mitch, do your job, shut up about the vaccinations and stick to defeating the leftists agenda of certain destruction for this country.

    1. Last I heard, he plans to retire at the end of his current term…the big money grabbing term while waltzing with the guys from across the aisle, McCain style.

  4. He is a SNAKE in the Grass and a very poisonous one AND he is a backstabber to President Trump. He is also one of the Richest congressmen in congress. Did he have all that money before he went into office? I don’t think so ! These Congressmen live off of the People of these United States of America AND lie like dogs to keep their jobs. Kick his butt out of office. We have had enough of this SNAKE.

    1. David, I couldn’t have said it better. There’s going to come a time when We the People are going to have to stand together to get rid of this tyrannical government.

  5. He is a rino I am 64 and he is a double player. This is the trouble with these people I hate our current government we need all new people in our government.they all been in office to long. And they love the money they can rack in by being in that position. We need term limit on all aspects of government look at house speaker. She is a dam dictator and yes they been stealing votes for so long that they forget that they were elected for that job. But they have been grooming Americans for years and that is why they hate Trump. Because he stopped it well trying to. I should say we the people need our country BACK. TO THE PEOPLE

  6. Fauci should be publicly striped of the title of “Doctor.” What happened to the oath he supposedly took to never do “Harm To Another Person.” His Agency has been working on these viruses that self mutate, since the early 2000’s. I guess he never had time to read up on Steven Kings’s horror novel about deadly viruses escaping their laboratory environment, and becoming a “DEADLY HUMAN PLAGUE!!!” …Called the “STAND.”

    1. It sound like the inquisition of a United States: if you don’t shoot up the vaccine we will put you gulag: or let you starve to death till you comply. Are we in Hitler’s Mengeles experiment camps? Where is the freedom declared on our bill of rights in the constitution: or is this servant of the people has hands in the pot of pharma.and canoodling with his bud Biden and fauci the rat?

  7. Milk Toast Mitch is a traitor scumbag. He is married to a Chink, & is heavily invested in china. The P.O.S. is as
    Un-American as it gets!.

  8. Hey Mitch I haven’t heard one word from you or most republican about the COVID infested illegal migrant coming across our southern border. You clowns do not say anything about using the military to fly them all over the country in the dead of night. Can you say SWAMP CREATURE. Your one of them.

  9. They’re all dictators and the government is a criminal Enterprise. They’re not for the people they’re for themselves they’re all greedy criminals.

  10. The RINO, McConnell is worthless opportunist who needs to be replaced by an actual conservative. Wake up Kentucky and vote him out of office.

  11. Mitch gone to the evil side of politicians! He is now a RINO! Republican it time you remove old man mitch from your leadership role! Sorry, he has NO RIGHT MAKING THREATENED AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! He should know you CAN’T GET ANY VIRUS DURING THE HOT SUMMER DAY’S! If he sold out to china due to his wife being a Chinese. He need to change party! Or was it PELOSI WHO CON HIM INTO A SECOND DUMB IDEA ?

  12. I have had both of my shots and I lost the use of my legs for 2 days so if I went through all that to get back to normal I can tell you this they can take their lock down and stick it up their ass and they can do the same with their masks!!!!!!!!! This is all because the elections are just around the corner and they are getting ready to pull the same fraud with these elections but we need to let them know we are not that stupid and they are going to lose control of the house the senete and we will be back into our white house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They forget we pay for everything. We need to let them know we want our free country not their marxis bull shit. These communist pigs will be leaving our government one way or another and they can see the other coming just around the corner. And letting bull the shit crossing our boarders will come to an end. They are doing everything they can to turn this great country into a third world country NOT GOING TO HAPPEN THERE ARE MORE OF US THEN THERE ARE OF THEM!!!! And screw their cancel culture too!!! STAND UP AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK NOW BEFORE IT’S TO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Clown McConnell needs to go back into his own personal clown car
    He is NOT the president nor anything for the people except a mouthpiece
    He failed the Americans in may avenues
    It is TIME that he, peloshit and other demonRats with rinos just get put down since they screwed up everything
    Next step is what are we going to do with all that fraudulent votings, fraudulent crimes against humanity
    Time for them to just be put down??

  14. “… virtually the same approach — threatening the American people into accepting what is essentially an experimental drug.” Indeed, an experimental drug to fight an experimental virulent pathogen. We all follow our own sense of luck, the freedom to gamble for our own measurement of stake.
