In its typical style, the conservative satire website Babylon Bee suggested on Wednesday that the Centers for Disease Control were advocating the public to use protection against the “Electionyearicron” variant of COVID-19.
The Bee further noted that the CDC was ready to bring Dr. Anthony Fauci out of retirement to lead the battle against the latest variant, which should conveniently last until Nov. 6, 2024 — which is election day next year.
Yet the Bee’s take is mocking real life, as colleges, Hollywood and other left-wing entities are implementing or calling for a return to mask mandates.

Rep. Matt Gaetz warned Democrats against such a move, saying the party would “really suffer” if liberals again seek to exert pressure for COVID restrictions.
“We learned that we can have tyrants at every level of government, didn’t we? We had tyrannical little mayors and governors and folks believing that they could dictate the American way of life,” the Fort Walton Beach Republican noted in an interview with Newsmax on Tuesday.
“I am not going back to gutter dining. I am not going back to sitting outside of a perfectly good restaurant, just because the powers that be want that type of social control,” he added.
“I think we can vindicate the rights of our fellow Americans, particularly in the free exercise of religion, following what we learned from the lockdowns of COVID,” Gaetz continued. “And if they’re coming back again, I think we’re going to have a lot more Americans, a part of our political coalition to stand for freedom.”

“You know, we saw the political coalition for Republicans really grow when you had Democrats trying to lock people in their houses with their kids and tell them that they couldn’t go to work and couldn’t experience the American way of life,” Gaetz concluded.
“So, I think actually, Democrats would really suffer a political consequence for that if they go back down that road.”
