Anyone with an open mind can quickly surmise that the damage done by two years of lockdowns and mandates has been extensive. The years have been characterized by increased suicides, overdoses, social disorders and children developing slower than normal.
Now, nearly two years in, even some liberals have come around to the idea that lockdowns were not good for America, and even hurt its people. On his show, Bill Maher, along with former NY Times editor Bari Weiss, both liberals, allow themselves to say what many conservatives have been saying all along about the damage caused by mandates. As evidence of lockdown failures, Maher cites the differences in performance between the open and free state of Florida and his home state of New Jersey. Watch below.
“AOC went to Florida and had a good time without a mask hugging people.” @BillMaher points out open Florida has done better on COVID than NY: “The poster boy for keeping shit open was Florida. They are down at 17. So New York and New Jersey did worse than Florida.” #RealTime pic.twitter.com/qRo2bejUMr

Listen the cheers of Maher’s mostly liberal audience as he extolls Florida’s comparative success. Do those sound like people who want lockdowns and mandates to continue?
