On Saturday’s Justice With Judge Jeanine, the judge talks about Memorial Day and the heavy-handed response to the COVID-19 pandemic by some government officials. She begins:
Hope you’re having a great and a safe holiday weekend let’s get right to my opening statement:
So here we are on Memorial Day weekend 2020, the quintessential American holiday which usually signals the start of the lazy days of summer, beach fun and backyard barbecues. The day itself recognizes the military heroes who gave their lives so we can live freely and do these very things we honor them by observing parades displaying the American flag, visiting cemeteries and memorials,
pausing at 3 p.m. to remember the fallen, and thanking God there were heroes willing to die for the rest of us.
But this Memorial Day is different. America has been brought to her knees by an invisible enemy instilling fear and panic. We were helpless, intentionally uninformed as we watch this enemy spread
from China, to Europe, to the United States. We buckled and bowed to unknown science and to models that were more wrong than right.
I’m not criticizing anyone they were doing their best to protect us but authoritarian governors and local officials looking to flex their pathetic muscles to keep us on lockdown.
