Gov. DeathSantis says mask mandates are the greatest threat to freedom since the fall of the Berlin Wall. What an incredibly stupid comment – and on so many levels!
First, masks save lives of both the wearer and the people the wearer comes in contact with. The evidence of that is overwhelming.
Second, wasn’t The recent attempted overthrow of the US government a greater threat to freedom? And isn’t North Korea’s advances in its nuclear program a greater treat to freedom regardless of how you felt about Trump falling in love (to use Trump’s words) with Kim Jong-Um.
Third, why was the fall of the Berlin Wall a threat to freedom? Silly me. I thought the fall of the Berlin Wall was actually an opportunity for freedom, the exact opposite of a threat. Maybe These Trumpists have just gotten so used to their Orwellian Definition of freedom that they no longer can even differentiate between the two?…

Parents from a half-dozen Florida counties have sued DeSantis and state education officials, arguing the order infringes on classroom safety guaranteed by the state’s constitution.
Charles Gallagher, the lead attorney representing parents from a half-dozen counties, told The Post that DeSantis’s argument that people should have the individual freedom to decide if they want to wear a mask to prevent spreading the virus to others is “ludicrous.”
“It’s not parent choice,” Gallagher said. “It’s public health.”
