Remember back in March during a speech in which President Joe Biden dangled Independence Day as a carrot to encourage people to keep wearing masks and get vaccinated? “If we do our part … by July 4, there’s a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day … Small groups will be able to get together,” he said.
Freedom has arrived soon than planned, and the CDC has released guidance saying that you can go ahead and celebrate Father’s Day, on the occasion Gov. Andrew Cuomo didn’t kill him. Vaccinated people don’t have to wear masks inside or outside.
Father’s Day is a special time for many families. People who are fully vaccinated against #COVID19 can celebrate the day inside or outside without wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart. Learn more: https://t.co/FC2Js66xnt. pic.twitter.com/DaJFjDs2jn

If you are not fully vaccinated against #COVID19, celebrate with people who live with you, have a virtual meal with family, or host an outdoor event. More: https://t.co/PamSx6NqyB. pic.twitter.com/mJ1YzjhU8W

“Have a virtual meal with family” — unless you’re Jeffrey Toobin’s family.

People who are free can do whatever they want. Or did you become supreme ruler at some point?

Imagine actually having this guidance matter to you…

There are still plenty of people who take this nonsense as the gospel. If it weren't so sad, it would be hilarious.

I'll do that even if we're not vaccinated. Thanks though for your concern

I think I’ll celebrate any damn way I like. How’s that?

My doctor says anyone who has had the virus or has had the vaccine can live life per norma, solely because of our inalienable rights.

No one needs your permission for sh*t. Thanks.

When will you guys admit you’re insane?

Uh…@CDCgov doesn’t get to tell me what I can and cannot do with my family or friends. CDC is a failing institution and lost the trust of the people.

I’m doing what ever I want and there is not a damn thing you can do about it

You can never be trusted again. I’ll celebrate as I wish.

My freedom doesn't come from the CDC. No permission needed. I'll do what I choose to do. But thanks anyway.

Thank you CDC. We are so humbled by your offering of this gracious freedom. pic.twitter.com/gXrZCLoa90

The CDC is just a bureaucratic entity; masking and distancing never had any more scientific merit than local zoning boards issuing signage limits or building setbacks. It is asinine that dolts made a mandate of "recommendations" created because a random clerk deemed it practical.

We don’t think people are going to wait until Independence Day to have those “small gatherings.”
President Biden says that if we do our part, we might be able to get together in small groups in July https://t.co/n1pAFssJUa
