The left is in a tizzy trying to keep the majority of the nation under lockdowns as long as possible while still supporting massive protest gatherings in virtually every city.
The latest Democrat to be busted for blatant hypocrisy is freshman Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), who has repeatedly violated his own social distancing recommendations to attend protests — and there’s photographic proof.
National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Michael McAdams told Breitbart News on Monday that a constituent had asked Lamb during a town hall why politicians were enforcing lockdowns but allowing protests.
Lamb responded by making it emphatically clear that he believes social distancing is still necessary despite the ongoing protests.
“Yeah, I understand your point, Dan. And it’s one that I wish we were hearing maybe a louder and clearer emphasis on the importance of continuing our social distance measures and the way we can defend ourselves from the coronavirus,” Lamb said.
“If what you’re asking of me is what I think about the effect of all this on coronavirus, I will continue to encourage people to follow the same guidance we’ve given all along,” he continued, “Which is to avoid large crowds and large gatherings, and stay six feet or more away from people, and wear a mask.”
“That stuff is all just as true today as it was two weeks ago. So I agree with you on the importance of continuing to do that,” Lamb concluded.
Though Lamb said he is in favor of continued coronavirus restrictions, his actions speak louder than his words.
Despite Lamb’s promise to practice social distancing measures, he attended a George Floyd protest and posed with protesters that held signs that read, “Make Racism Wong Again, “Defund the Police,” and “Which Side of History Are You On?”
No “law and order” here @ConorLambPA.
@RepConorLamb embracing #DefundthePolice is exactly why @SeanParnellUSA will send him packing in November! #PA17 #PApolitics https://t.co/W2jsyFJKQQ pic.twitter.com/hICpi8PFkc

McAdams explained that Lamb’s audacious hypocrisy is “exactly why voters don’t trust Congress. Lamb demanded law-abiding citizens stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but he was happy to ignore his own advice to pose with anti-cop protesters demanding to ‘Defund the Police.'”
Countless examples of this behavior from Democrats in all levels of government give Republican leaders outside of Washington D.C. hope that Americans will vote red in November.
State GOP chairpersons in Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconson — among others — told Politico last week that they’re highly optimistic that the silent majority will turn out more than ever before in the election, not just for Trump, but for local Republican leaders as well.
