Senator Linthicum On COVID-19 Double Standards
All men and women are inherently valuable

Senator Dennis Linthicum (R-Klamath Falls) has issued a statement about the unconstitutional lockdowns and the resulting double standards.

“If Governor Kate Brown truly ‘followed the science’, the insidious and unconstitutional COVID-19 lockdowns would have ended months ago because they do not make any sense. The cost far exceeds the benefits and the negative results from lockdowns far outweigh the false imagery about ‘saving lives.’ We now know there are increased rates of child abuse from the lockdowns; patients are unable to get cancer treatments; and, the U.N. estimates nearly 130 million people will starve as a direct result of lockdowns worldwide.

“Here in Oregon, the cruel and perfidious COVID-19 mandates only seem to apply to hard-working Oregonians but not to the many hypocrites in office. When the political elite fail to live by their own arbitrary rules, it creates a double standard that signals to Oregonians that have been irreparably damaged by the lockdowns that their suffering and sacrifices do not matter. This is socialism at its worst: ‘Everyone is equal, but some are more equal.’

“America’s founding concepts still remain: all men and women are inherently valuable. They are free-will moral agents who are, and by right, ought to be free. Self-governance is the goal; not control by the state. After watching a disturbing video of a corporate airline discriminating against a young family, it is abundantly clear that when citizens and businesses blindly follow the government’s arbitrary COVID-19 rules out of fear, they unwittingly become the arm of state power. It’s time for Oregonians to take back their freedom and get back to living their lives without fear of state interference.”
