John Feal, a 9/11 first responder and victims advocate, on Monday warned that states without social distancing policies are like a “pee section in a public pool.”

Feal, who is fighting a COVID-19 infection, told MSNBC that he is feeling better after 14 days with the virus.

“I was scared. This virus with pneumonia kicked my butt and nothing really scares me,” he explained. “This virus doesn’t discriminate. I don’t care if you are a Republican or a Democrat, black or white, tall, short, skinny or fat.”

“Those eight states that don’t have the social distancing [orders],” Feal continued. “You know, that’s like adding a peeing section in a public pool. We’re eventually going to get ourselves sick again.”

2020 Election

Here’s why Republicans who are calling for a Trump dictatorship should not be taken lightly — and aren’t going away

Published

The United States dodged an authoritarian bullet when former Vice President Joe Biden, a centrist Democrat, became president-elect, winning 306 electoral votes and defeating defeated President Donald Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote. But when Republican Lin Wood, a pro-Trump attorney who has been fighting the election results in Georgia, implores Trump to impose martial law and elections officials are receiving death threats for acknowledging Biden as president-elect, it is painfully obvious that there is a strong appetite for fascism in parts of the United States. And journalist Sasha Abramsky, in an article published by The Nation on December 4, warns that Republicans who are openly calling for fascism should not be taken lightly.
