Looks Like The “Neanderthal” Thinking Did A Ton Of Good For Red States Braving Covid-19


Well, who would have thought it true?

Looks like locking down the economy, mask mandates, and social distancing did NOT help out those blue states during the pandemic.

Reports confirm that red states overall had a much better response than blue states in their handling of the pandemic.

Texas in particular is doing extremely well sources say.

It seems to me like more states should adopt the “neanderthal” way of thinking, as Biden would call it.

Take a look at these red states, and their excellent Covid-19 response:

Fox News Had more on how Texas is doing:

His critics went far beyond Democrats, who surely made themselves vocal in opposition to Texas’ reopening, with President Biden calling it “Neanderthal thinking” and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke slamming the “death warrant for Texas,” while accusing the governor of “killing the people of Texas.”

Perhaps the biggest pushback Abbott faced was from the media.

The Washington Post editorial board declared on March 2 that the governor “is endangering the health of Texas and beyond.”

“While everyone is eager for a break from restrictions, Mr. Abbott’s decision is premature and reckless,” the Post wrote at the time. “The governor’s decision may cheer those feeling rebellious, fatigued and impatient with the year-long pandemic restrictions. But the result of opening too soon will be viral spread, and more suffering.”

CNN Praised Florida:

After a year of criticism by health experts, mockery from comedians and blistering critiques from political rivals, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is standing unabashedly tall among the nation’s governors on the front lines of the coronavirus fight.

“Everyone told me I was wrong,” DeSantis, a Republican, said in a fundraising appeal on Tuesday, drawing attention to his defiance against the pandemic. “I faced continued pressure from radical Democrats and the liberal media, but I refused to back down. It’s clear: Florida got it right.”

As many parts of the country embark on an uneasy march toward normalcy, Florida is not only back in business — it’s been in business for the better part of the past year. DeSantis’ gamble to take a laissez faire approach appears to be paying off — at least politically, at least for now, as other governors capturing attention in the opening phase of the pandemic now face steeper challenges.

Despite far fewer rules and restrictions, Florida lands nearly in the middle of all states on a variety of coronavirus metrics. The state has had about 3% more Covid-19 cases per capita than the US overall, but about 8% fewer deaths per capita. More than 32,000 Floridians have died of Covid-19, and the state’s per capita death rate ranks 24th in the nation.
