Dem. Rep. Says Americans ‘Have No Right to Spread Respiratory Droplets in Public Spaces’


Democratic Senator Ted Lieu offered a confusing message on social media over the weekend when he claimed that the American people “have no right to spread [their] respiratory droplets [in] public spaces and in businesses.”

“You have NO RIGHT to spread your respiratory droplets on me, on others, in public spaces and in businesses. The majority of reasonable Americans are going to fight the tyranny of the minority who insist they can leave their saliva anywhere. And we will win,” posted Lieu.

Lieu’s post follows new COVID regulations that require all House Members to wear face-masks inside the US Capitol.

“This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Rep. Kat Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.”

“I cannot comply with this tyrannical order,” Cammack added. “This is the people’s house, not Nancy Pelosi’s house.”

“The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News. “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.”

“If you are a Capitol police officer you got orders … If a vaccinated staffer comes across in the House side without a mask you’re ordered to arrest them, but not on the Senate side,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said. “This is not the America we know.”

    The right needs to call their bluff and pro-life employer’s should require proof you haven’t had an abortion in the past year or ever, “right to privacy’ comes from Roe v Wade, to work for them. HIPPA codified privacy for all medical information for ALL citizens
    If I don’t have the right to privacy for the vaccine, why do women get it for 3rd trimester abortions?
    Equal Protection Clause??

    Dumb sanctimonious dem pandering to his low-IQ, LCD base that makes up his party’s voting public.

    Again, a “Dem Representative”. Surprised? I’m not, Democrats are goddamned monsters.

    Maybe they could build special camps for the unvaccinated, uncultured swine? Somewhere in Flyover State Nobody Land, near the train tracks so they can transport the vile inhuman vax-rejecting filth in an environmentally friendly train car, piled in, standing room only. After intake they could be made to strip, march as a group into large shower rooms, and they can be cleansed en masse… Finally, a solution! /s

    Dems are almost exactly like the fucking Nazis but they have no goddamned style. Hugo Boss has been traded for Lululemon

    Fuck you, Ted. You and all the Democrats are traitors to our country. You should all be charged with treason.

    Um, that is what the mask is for. Yes, we have a right to breathe respiratory droplets into the air. You can wear a mask to protect yourself from it.

    Next up, the argument for not wearing pants to the grocery store. If we are allowed to spread our respiratory droplets then we should be allowed to spread our legs. Sorry, I am joking – didn’t mean to get you all excited there.

    Just thinking about where this whole thing in Congress is going. Pelosi is using the police as her personal Praetorian guard to play physical power games with her political enemies. What I don’t think anyone involved realizes is that this kind of behavior brings the fight from an abstract domain into physical space. People will be on edge. Besides all the insanity of today’s politics, congressmen will have to also deal with the fear of being physically assaulted by police. What happens when a sleep deprived, exhausted, hungry and frustrated senior member of the Senate is confronted by a policeman who just also happens to have a bad day? What happens if they’re both armed?

    Worse yet, you can have all kinds of crazy scenarios happen if the capitol police start acting as enforcers of the party in power. Imagine that Pelosi institutes some rule designed to humiliate her opponents on the other side of the isle? Perhaps full body pat-downs. Maybe aides end up getting strip searched. GOP senators held in cold, empty rooms for hours because of a ‘security concern’ while Democrats sit chuckling in the rotunda. Imagine the hatred, the venom that this will produce.

    Now fast forward two years. Suddenly the smug Democrats show up on a cold January morning to new security precautions that the GOP is exempt from. Maybe someone resists. The aide gets a bloody nose.

    Fast forward two more years. The morning after the presidential election. Now even the Democrats are mostly armed. Congress is a powder keg. Everyone’s twitchy.

    Yep. It’s all crumbling.
