(Right Country) – Former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent and conservative firebrand radio host Dan Bongino had some very choice words about local mask mandates in his country.
And we’re willing to be many of you can relate.
“You can take your mask mandate and shove it right up your ass,” Bongino declared on Wednesday’s airing of his program, “The Dan Bongino Show.”
He was addressing the commissioners of Martin County, Florida where he resides.
Commissioners voted 5-0 to pass a mask mandate after a long meeting on Tuesday where most residents expressed opposition to the ordinance.
“They have no authority to do this,” Bongino declared. “These people are just fabricating new tyrannical powers drunk on their own power.”
He clarified while he is not “anti-mask” in principle and doesn’t oppose respecting rules set in place by private businesses requiring masks to ender or individuals who request that masks be worn around them, he does have a problem with the government requiring something that should be left up to the free choice of adult individuals.
“I do not need power-drunk pseudo monarchs, little mini tyrants in my supposedly conservative county sending out ridiculous childlike amateur hour edicts demanding people wear masks in situations where the risk of transmission is somewhat close to zero,” he declared. “You can take your mask mandate and shove it right up your ass, you understand? Because I will not comply.”
“I will use my own adult mature 45-year-old judgment to determine when and where to wear a mask so that I do not infect someone else and that I do not make people uncomfortable,” Bongino continued. “We are all big boys and we will figure it out.”
He also took issue with the requirement to wear masks outside in 100-degree weather where the risks for contracting the coronavirus are low.
“If we fold and bend the knee to these government-wide ridiculous edicts like wearing a mask on a 100-degree beach in the middle of Martin County then what’s next, a mandate to eat broccoli?” he asked.
