Texas Rep. Goes on Based Rant Against Forcing Every 2-Year-Old to Mask-Up
Texas congressional member Chip Roy went on a “based” rant against the tyrannical proposal of New York colleague Jerrold Nadler (D) to force every two-year-old in America to mask or it would be “child abuse.”
Nadler kicked off the heated exchange with a disturbing proposal on the House floor arguing that young toddlers be forced to mask or that it would be “child abuse.”

“When we have a pandemic like Covid, two-year-olds should have been required to wear masks,” he argued. “It would be child abuse for parents not to do that.”
Nadler also made the dubious insinuation that Covid vaccines should be mandated, regardless of natural immunity from prior infection, risk profile, or age demographic, while completely ignoring ethical issues such as the right to bodily autonomy and informed consent.
Texas Rep. Roy exploded in a fiery rant on the House floor about the insidious nature of Nadler’s proposal.
“Well, I’m tempted to yield all my time to the gentleman from New York because he is basically making the case for me more effectively than I can,” Roy began. “The gentleman from New York is basically acknowledging everything that I’m sitting here saying that I’m trying to do to protect the American people from the tyrannical state of the executive branch, but in this case, my Democratic colleagues and other side of the aisle.”
“I want everybody in America to understand what they just heard from the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee in the United States House of Representatives,” he continued. “Your two-year-old should be forced to be masked. That is what the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee just said here on the floor of the House of Representatives, that the power of the government, the full power of the federal government should be a part of ensuring and forcing your children, your two-year-old child to be masked.”
“We heard it yesterday when the Secretary of HHS refused, refused to actually answer that question, so I’m really glad to hear that the ranking member of the House Share Committee acknowledges what everybody in America understands, which is that the Democratic party led by the President and by my Democratic colleagues in the House and the Senate are fully comfortable with the power of the government being used to shut down your businesses, force you out of work unless you take an experimental vaccine that has not been proven to actually do what the gentleman just said, which is with respect to transmissions,” he added.
“More importantly, my father, who is 80-years-old, is dealing with the ravages of polio,” Roy noted. “I firmly understand the importance of vaccines, and I’m proud that my children and I have been able to be protected by those vaccines fully tested after years of testing.”
“But to say that this politicized vaccine should have been used to shut down the economy and to kill the ability of my constituents to be able to go out about their lives and to force children into the corner wearing masks to get setback back years in their education, that is precisely why this amendment matters,” he said. “It is precisely why we’re here reigning in the federal government.”
Rep. Roy and Rep. Nadler were debating the REINS Act, which would “reassert Congress’ legislative authority and prevent excessive overreach by the executive branch in the federal rulemaking process.”
It would require every new “major rule” proposed by federal agencies to be approved by both the House and Senate before going into effect. The bill is relevant to restraining the abuses of the executive branch, such as was witnessed throughout the Covid pandemic response.
