Gov. Abbott shocked the liberal elites when he announced on March 2 that “Texas is OPEN 100%. EVERYTHING. I also ended the statewide mask mandate.”
Democrats fell over themselves to paint the grim future of Texas and all the lives that would be lost due to Gov. Abbott finally allowing his state to open.
CW’s Supergirl “cartoonist” Nicole Maines tweeted: “You are knowingly putting people’s lives in danger.”
Eric Fiegl-Ding – the CNN “Epidemiologist” that infamously moved his family out of the United States so that his child could receive in-person learning while he continued to advocate for American schools to stay closed – tweeted, “This stain and all the COVID deaths to come will be forever your legacy.”
Writer and Director Blaine Gibson tweeted, “You’re a worthless leader. Absolute dog s***. Lifting the mask mandate will result in so many unnecessary deaths, you dumb mother f***er.”

Actress Patricia Arquette tweeted, “Because one catastrophe on your hands this year is just not enough for you?”
And let’s not forget California Gov. Gavin Newsom‘s hot take where he calls Gov. Abbott’s decision to let Texans take authority of their lives and health “Absolutely reckless.”
With all the screaming, one would have thought the sky would truly be falling.
These people seem very angry at the thought of Americans fully educating themselves on the personal risks of Covid and still choosing hope over fear.
All eyes were on Texas as the once buttoned-up state – especially in the blue/purple cities of Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin – would loosen their pandemic responses.
Today the 7-day Covid positivity rate dropped to a new recorded low: 4.95%
Hospitalizations dropped to a 6 month low
This week we have 1 million 1st vaccines available
Everyone now qualifies for a shot. They are highly recommended to prevent getting Covid but always voluntary

Shockingly, Texas’ Covid positivity rate has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. Gov. Abbott tweeted yesterday, “Today the 7-day Covid positivity rate dropped to a new recorded low: 4.95%. Hospitalizations dropped to a 6 month low. This week we have 1 million 1st vaccines available. Everyone now qualifies for a shot. They are highly recommended to prevent getting Covid but always voluntary.”
Gov. Abbott is making wise choices that balance public health and safety with the freedoms given to us by God and protected by the Constitution. Don’t forget that Texas wasn’t the epitome of American freedom with its mandatory masks and event cancellations.
It’s a measure of American journalism’s incompetence that CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS are not running round-the-clock coverage of the positivity coming out of Texas. Texas isn’t the only state that has seen a drop in cases after Covid restrictions were lifted.
Two weeks ago they ran with the dramatic narrative that everyone in Texas would be dead from Covid because of Gov. Abbott’s decision, but now the numbers are at a record low. Not only did re-opening the state not lead to a health emergency in Texas, but neither did the biggest issue – lifting the mask mandate.
No surge in Covid cases or ICU’s overcapacity. Texas chugs on unscathed and the media can’t handle this loss.
If there were any journalists with integrity left they would be calling for their colleagues to admit their failures. There aren’t any such journalists left in mainstream media.
You can find them sprinkled through various conservative sites with much smaller reach and substack because cancel culture comes for those that push back against the narrative of the left.
