With supply chain shortages, inflation and the resurrection of COVID restrictions, it seems the Biden administration is doing everything they can to cancel Christmas this year. However, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) has encouraged Americans to resist Democrats’ negativity campaign.
Gov. Noem isn’t allowing Joe Biden to steal the spirit of Christmas. This past week, Biden has browbeaten Americans, threatening that a “very long, dark winter” is ahead of them.
“For the unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for unvaccinated, for themselves, their families and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm. But there’s good news,” Biden said. “If you’re vaccinated and you had your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death, period.”
Although, Noem said her state still believes in personal responsibility and common sense measures.
“Encourage them to consistently wash their hands, like we did throughout the pandemic to make sure if they’re not feeling well they should stay home. Protect the vulnerable individuals and choose to get a vaccine if they would like to. If they don’t, then go into this knowing that they should focus on exercising, taking their vitamins and being very healthy people,” Noem stated.
Meanwhile, South Dakotans will celebrate Christmas this year despite Biden’s fearmongering.
“We plan on doing business as usual and celebrating Christmas. I think the president’s outlook is focusing on the negatives,” she went on. “This country needs hope and they need to remember the promises of Christmas and love they have for their family and friends, and enjoy the season.”
