‘We Will Not Comply’ Trends Online As Masks Start To return

As rumors of a new strain of Covid-19 circulate, universities and hospitals particularly in blue states have begun to react by bringing back the mask mandates. Two major hospitals in New York have already reintroduced their mask mandate, and some universities have done the same. According to the Washington Examiner, Morris Brown College in Atlanta Georgia reinstated both a mask mandate and social distancing after a few students tested positive for Covid-19.

As mask mandates start to make a return in certain states, concern and worry has begun to rise that the Biden Administration will attempt to force lockdowns on states. Founder and president of Conservative organization Turning Point USA, Charlie Kirk, posted a warning that the ‘Covid Scare’ is preparing to make a comeback: “Masks are now being sold at check out at Whole Foods in Arizona. Hollywood now Demanding Masks. Rutgers now demanding masks. Federal government buying “supplies”. It’s coming.”

Both former president Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron Desantis, who are the two frontrunners for the Republican presidential nomination, have indicated they are prepared to fight the Biden Administration if they attempt to lock down the country or reintroduce mandates. 

Trump posted a video about the potential return of ‘Covid hysteria’ and commented under the post stating “COVID Tyrants want to take away our Freedom. Hear my words— WE WILL NOT COMPLY!”.

Ron Desantis has largely run his campaign on discussing how he handled Covid-19 in Florida. He has stated many times how he kept schools open, refused to allow vaccine mandates, and refused to keep his state locked down. Desantis stated during the first presidential primary debate that “As president, I will never let the Deep State bureaucrats lock you down.”

President Biden has already stated recently that he will be requesting funds from Congress for a new Covid vaccine. He stated on Friday that “I signed off this morning on a proposal we have to present to the Congress a request for additional funding for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works,” he said.

Many Americans remain concerned that Biden’s administration will attempt to lock down America and reintroduce strict mandates. There are also questions as to whether the American economy would be able to handle another lock down.
