Governor Walz spent nearly two years as King of Minnesota. His self-anointed emergency powers allowed him to operate without legislative approval. On top of that, he spent the last few months passing some of the most extreme legislation in the country.
On Friday, Walz traveled to Des Moines, Iowa to lecture Republican leaders about how they ought to lead.
"We don't need you in the exam room. We don't need you telling us who we can love. We don't need you dictating to us about rewriting the history of what happened in this country around slavery!" Walz continues, "Good neighbors are built by minding your own damn business!"
But it was Governor Walz who divided Minnesota citizens into "essential" and "non-essential" workers in 2020. During his illegal lockdowns, he instituted a tip line that encouraged neighbors to snitch on one another. The "stay-at-home violation" hotline was in use all the way up to the 2022 election, when Walz was pressured by his political opponents to take it down.
Of course, Walz also implemented vaccine mandates for state employees. Pressuring those who value medical freedom to either violate their bodily autonomy or get another job. Walz certainly did not respect the privacy of the "exam room" then.
Governor Walz should start by minding his "damn business" before traveling the country and telling others to do the same.
