Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is calling on citizens to outright ignore new mask mandates and potential lockdowns that may be imposed as a result of the Delta variant.
In an op-ed published Wednesday on Fox News, Paul called on citizens to “choose freedom” over accepting new mask mandates and lockdowns from alleged “petty tyrants,” specifically House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Joe Biden, and local “bureaucrats.”
“Resist,” Paul begins his op-ed, “They can’t arrest us all. They can’t keep all your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed — although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.”
