Don’t Let ‘Panic Porn Squad’ Scare You into More Lockdowns: Sexton

Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” said Thursday that the increase of coronavirus cases in the U.S. has prompted politicians to implement new lockdown orders and mask mandates despite the ineffectiveness of the guidelines that have already been in place.

“I’m in New York City,” Sexton said. “We wear masks all the time, cases are climbing. Everyone’s wearing masks– all except when they’re celebrating a preemptive Joe Biden victory.”

He said that cases continue to climb in the city despite the widely accepted belief that face masks prevent infection transmission.

“Why is that? Oh, because we’re not doing it well enough,” Sexton said. “It’s our fault. It’s not their stupid policies. It’s not that mandates actually aren’t going to fix the problem. It’s that we are insufficient. ‘Do more of what we say,’ that’s always the response you’re going to get. Friends, we can just allow this to happen or we can fight back with everything we’ve got and try to turn this around. But I think, unfortunately, the panic porn squad is going to win once again.”

Dr. Michael Osterholm, a coronavirus advisor to Joe Biden, told Yahoo Finance on Wednesday that a nationwide lockdown could bring hospitalizations down to a manageable level.

“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, two medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments. We could do all of that,” he said. “If we did that, then we could lockdown for four to six weeks.”

The U.S. had a record 145,835 new cases on Wednesday and there are currently at least 65,000 Americans who are currently hospitalized, according to the Washington Post. Dr. David Samadi, a urologist and Newsmax contributor, tweeted, “I keep hearing about a 4-6 week nationwide lockdown being instituted in January. There is absolutely no science that would back that up & I think we can all agree it would be the final nail in destroying our country’s economy.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top disease expert, said in an interview that another national lockdown could be avoided if Americans follow the guidelines put in place by health officials.

Sexton said another lockdown would be detrimental to Americans who are still trying to recover from the first round and would cost the federal government trillions.  

“They say, ‘It’s just not enough, guys. You’ve got to do a little more. A little more. A little more. More masking…all we have to do to beat this pandemic is to wear masks,’ which is fascinating because the beginning of the pandemic, they were straight up telling us, ‘Don’t wear masks.’”
