The conservative media personality Candace Owens spoke out this week to call out President Joe Biden for his horrible COVID-19 vaccine mandates, predicting that they will lead to “disaster.”
“I don’t think he thought it through,” Owens told Fox News, referring to Biden. “I think that he thought that with enough pressure and with people fearful of losing their jobs, they would just comply. And I think that now there’s a pending disaster. You’ve got thousands and thousands of nurses across the country are losing their jobs.”
“You’re talking about New York City bringing in the National Guard to help accommodate and to step in. I don’t know about people around the world, but I don’t want the National Guard,” she added. “If I’m a mother about to give birth, I don’t want the National Guard there to assist me.”
Not stopping there, Owens proceeded to double down.
“So it’s a complete and utter collapse,” she explained. “It’s obviously very good for conservatives, and I think this is a little bit of temporary pain that we’re all going to feel. Obviously, you know, we’re going to have the supply chain to shut down, and we’re going to be dealing with a lot of issues of just short supplies across the country. But for me, not being able to travel as conveniently is definitely worth it to stand up to what’s really become a totalitarian regime and so much federal overreach.”
“And so I think, again, like I said, a little bit of pain,” Owens concluded. “But overall, the big picture, it’s going to be good for conservatives because these moderate Democrats need to see firsthand what we were talking about when we started talking about the radical overreach that the left was after.”
Biden has been pushing vaccine mandates like it’s his job over the past few weeks.
“There is no other way to beat the pandemic than to get the vast majority of the American people vaccinated,” Biden said during a recent Chicago event promoting vaccine mandates, according to US News. “While I didn’t race to do it right away, that’s why I’ve had to move toward requirements.”
“Look, I know that vaccination requirements are a tough medicine — unpopular to some, politics for others — but they’re lifesaving, they’re game-changing for our country,” Biden added.
Biden went on to call on businesses to enforce vaccine mandates on employees.
“You’re setting an example and a powerful example,” Biden told company officials. “I’m calling on more employers to act.”
