Texas County GOP Chair Claims COVID-19 Is Democratic Hoax

Texas County GOP Chair Claims COVID-19 Is Democratic Hoax May 23, 2020

Dangerous Delusion: Speaking at a rally outside the San Antonio City Hall, Bexar County Republican Chair Cynthia Brehm made the outrageous claim that the coronavirus pandemic is a Democratic hoax.

Inquisitor reports:

A viral video from Texas shows a Republican Party leader speaking at local rally calling the coronavirus panic a hoax being perpetrated by Democrats with the goal of hurting Donald Trump, then encouraging people to take off their face masks.

The video showed Bexar County Republican Chairwoman Cynthia Brehm speaking at a political protest against continued restrictions meant to slow the spread of the virus. Brehm said that a requirement to wear face coverings is a violation of people’s constitutional rights and hinted that the coronavirus panic is being manufactured by Democrats in order to hurt Trump.

Brehm, speaking at Friday’s rally, declared:

They asked us to wear masks, and according to Attorney GeneralPaxton, this is unconstitutional. So if we don’t want to wear masks, this is our choice.

This is America, and we shouldn’t have to be forced or mandated to wear a mask.

Brehm continued:

Why is this happening today? And I’ll tell you why: all of this has been promulgated by the Democrats to undo all the good President Trump has done for our country — and they are worried. So, take off your masks, exercise your constitutional rights. Stand up, speak up and vote Republican.

In short, Brehm contends that being asked to wear a mask to protect others is unconstitutional, and that the coronavirus pandemic that has taken almost 100,000 American lives and over 340,000 lives around the globe is actually a Democratic hoax perpetrated to make Donald Trump look bad.

The stupid, it burns.

Adding insult to injury, after Brehm made her wild remarks, those Republicans attending the rally began to shake-hands and hug each other, deliberately violating the social distancing guidelines and potentially placing everyone they come into contact with at risk.

As one might imagine, the delusional GOP chair was condemned on social media for her reckless behavior. The following is a sample of that reaction via Twitter:

Bottom line: Bexar County Republican Chair Cynthia Brehm claims that the coronavirus is a Democratic hoax perpetrated to make Donald Trump look bad.
