In a fiery monologue this Saturday evening, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro told the big-government, nanny-state proponents and media “journalists” who keep pushing for more coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions to keep their “damn hands off us!”
Speaking for over eight minutes, the fiery judge explained that while the American people recognize the dangers of the highly contagious coronavirus, it is imperative lawmakers immediately seek a “balance between physical safety and economic survival.”
And yet, she noted, neither nanny-state lawmakers nor their nanny-state media allies seem to understand the urgency of the matter.

“More and more people becoming unemployed — 22 million so far. People watched their savings, their livelihood and their dreams disappear. For some, there will simply be no business to rebuild. For others, there will be no coming back from the depths of depression, alcohol or drug abuse,” she said.
“Canceled elective surgeries, prolonged enormous physical pain, stress and depression. All the while, Navy ships turned to hospitals sent at the request of panicked governors remained virtually empty on both coasts. And yet some continue to think that the nanny state is the answer.”
And this despite an expanding trove of evidence pointing to the coronavirus being far less deadly than has been portrayed by the media.
Moreover, Pirro continued, the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” regardless of what authoritarian decrees that certain lawmakers may believe is necessary to stem the spread of the virus.
“The Declaration of Independence gives us the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Included is the right to survive, live freely and care for our families,” she said.
“It does not give governors the right to impose nanny states, reduce liberties and enlarge government power. Certainly, government has the authority to protect public health during a pandemic. But that power cannot be used to nullify constitutional rights, including the right of peaceful protest when civil liberties are at stake.”
But the nullification of constitutional rights is exactly what some have faced, including Kim Pagan of New Jersey, who was charged last week for simply organizing a protest against state Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat.

“Enough of these small-time politicians using this pandemic to flex their pathetic muscles in order to gain attention!” the judge exclaimed.
“Like ticketing citizens for attending drive-in church services on church property in their own cars? Like arresting and handcuffing a father in front of his children for playing catch outdoors? Like prohibiting citizens the right to purchase firearms?”
All of the events she cited actually occurred.
“Americans won’t accept their rights being trampled on,” the FNC host continued. “No more of this one size fits all the mentality. Twenty-two million jobs lost and now Washington has run out of money to pay for the small business loan program? Layoffs are the predictable outcome from that one.”
Meanwhile, the faulty models being used to predict doom and gloom keep being revised downward.
“Americans sheltered in their homes who’ve been patiently watching this unfold have seen the data and the facts change from day to day,” Pirro noted.
“First it was 2.2 million who were supposed to die in the United States. Then it was a million, then it was 500,000, then 250,000. And supposedly, mitigation was already taken into account. But the models are just plain wrong.”
She continued by saying that while she understands the need to be cautious with areas such as New York City that contain a high density of coronavirus patients, the rest of America must be allowed to continue living and functioning.
“We understand there are still many sick and dying, and density and hot spots are to be treated differently. But what about the rest of us? We want to go back to work, feed our families. And as the governors sit there and pontificate, we are the ones experiencing the reality.”
The reality of mass unemployment and increased domestic violence, alcoholism, drug addiction, abused children, etc.
Listen to the rest of Pirro’s monologue below:
“I’ll wear my mask, my gloves and I’ll keep my distance, and I’ll do the testing whether to determine if I have COVID or whether I have the antibody, but don’t you even think about tracing or tracking or giving me a card. It ain’t happening,” she continued.
“Your models are out of control, the economy is out of control, China is the one that’s out of control. We’re not going to let you destroy this country or our way of life. We’ve worked too hard and we’ve fought too long to lose it to a Wuhan virus that China knew about, openly lied about, said it couldn’t be transmitted from human to human and intentionally protected Chinese citizens from the virus but allowed that virus to be released, putting the rest of the world at risk.”
And so instead of punishing the American people, lawmakers need to start going after the true culprits, the judge concluded:
“You want to control people? You politicians want to flex your muscles? Well, start working on how you’re going to punish, ostracize, alienate, and financially sanction and make China accountable for what they did to us and the rest of the world, but keep your damn hands off us and do something about what got us into this mess in the first place!“
