This is just embarrassing for House Republican Madison Cawthorn

House freshman Madison Cawthorn (R. – N.C.) ludicrously suggested on Friday that President Biden was nefariously plotting to confiscate your guns and Bibles, while twisting Biden’s words regarding a “door-to-door” community campaign helping people get vaccinated.

Responding to the troubling surges of unvaccinated Americans contracting the Delta variant of the coronavirus, on Tuesday Biden called on local communities to ramp up the pace of vaccinations, explaining “we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door to door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people.” Republicans and conservative media responded with fake outrage, mischaracterizing Biden’s words as government intimidation and a mandate.

Governor Henry McMaster (R. – S.C.) wrote a letter stating “enticing, coercing, intimidating, mandating or pressuring” citizens to get vaccinated would undermine trust in the government, knowing Biden said no such thing. On Thursday, Jeff Zients, White House coronavirus response coordinator, condemned misinformation on the administration’s vaccine distribution effort, calling it a “disservice to the country and to the doctors, the faith leaders, community leaders, and others who are working to get people vaccinated, save lives, and help end the pandemic.”

Nevertheless, on Friday, Cawthorn appeared on conservative news outlet Right Side Broadcasting Network, making dark assertions insinuating Big Brother himself was on your trail, stating, “Now, they’re starting to talk about going door-to-door, to be able to take vaccines to people. Think about the mechanisms they would have to build to be able to actually execute that massive of a thing. And then think about what those mechanisms could be used for. They could go door-to-door and take your guns. They could go door-to-door and take your Bibles,” Cawthorn alerted, knowing full well Biden was encouraging community leaders and volunteers serving their own communities, yet purposely trying to incite fear and anger with his cockamamy lies about nonexistent government “mechanisms” trailing and coming after you.

   

Democrats are used to Republicans’ fake warnings that your guns are going to be confiscated, which they’ve been claiming forever, but your Bibles? How do they even think of such nonsense? Perhaps Cawthorn is a Marjorie Taylor Greene fan, taking cues from her to create asinine government conspiracy theories in order to get attention and raise the big bucks.
