“Republican leadership and those seeking to please them have generally tried to shape the narrative surrounding lockdowns as having been all Democrats’ idea. This has meant focusing almost entirely on Democratic leaders in the White House like Anthony Fauci and Rochelle Walensky, while highlighting the impact of Democratic tribalism and downplaying the role of Republicans in the genesis of lockdowns. Vote Republican — any Republican, so this narrative goes — and these problems will be solved. The problem with this narrative is that it’s transparently untrue, and voters aren’t that dumb. … if Republicans want the response to Covid to be a top-priority issue among voters, they need to be more honest about both the unprecedented harm these policies caused and the role that some of their own cadres played in instigating them.” (11/10/22)
