Friday, in an interview with Mobile, AL radio FM Talk 106.5, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) warned the push for another shutdown done in the name of preventing the spread of COVID-19 was part of the effort to expand the government’s involvement in Americans’ lives, which is a characteristic of socialism.
The Texas congressman said that was what we could look forward to in a potential Biden administration.
“It’s exactly what the socialists manipulating things want,” he said. “And that’s mainly coming from the billionaires that think falsely that they’ll be part of the ruling class. But it is also conditioning Americans that the government can tell you what business to be in, when you can open, what you can do. They’re moving us more and more away from our freedom into socialism. And that’s exactly what we were promised, and that’s what Biden is going to deliver on.”
