The Great Pushback Has Begun

The Great Pushback Has Begun

They're tired of unconstitutional vaccine mandates in New Jersey, they're tired of leftist "educators" in Virginia telling them that they can't shape their kids' school curriculum.

Most of all, they're tired of an all-powerful federal government — controlled by know-it-all bureaucrats — telling them how to live their lives.

Election results from Virginia and New Jersey offered the first opportunity since Biden's inauguration to register discontent at the ballot box, but anyone who has been paying any attention could have seen this coming.

You just have to attend a football game, NASCAR event, the World Series, or rally anywhere across the country.

The "Let's Go Brandon" (a.k.a. "F*** Joe Biden") slogan has taken the nation by storm. Rapper Bryson Gray's "Let's Go Brandon" anthem has rocketed to #1 on iTunes (even after being banned from YouTube), and three other songs by the same name hit the top 10.

A new poll from Convention of States Action (COSA) and the Trafalgar Group shows why.

Nearly 58% of respondents said they are familiar with the "Let's Go Brandon" chant. Of those who are familiar with the chant, a full 75.9% believe it is an appropriate way to protest the Biden administration.

In fact, for those actually paying attention before Tuesday's election — poll after poll and story after story show that Americans are fed up, and that the Great Pushback has begun.

Just last month, 63% of Americans said the COVID pandemic is growing less serious, while a plurality also believe that Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci have no interest in loosening restrictions and mandates, according to COSA and the Trafalgar Group.

In other words, the jig is up. Americans have realized that vaccine and mask mandates have nothing to do with the state of the pandemic. Biden and Fauci just want control, and they're using COVID as an excuse.

In response to this transparent tyranny, Southwest pilots staged a sick out — and it worked. Company executives announced that they are scrapping a plan to terminate unvaccinated pilots who have yet to receive a religious or medical exemption.

The In-N-Out burger chain has also taken a stand. It refused to check its customers' vaccination papers at the door, which has resulted in the closure of several restaurants in the San Francisco area.

"We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason," In-N-Out Chief Legal & Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said.

In Illinois, sheriffs around Chicago have refused to send their deputies into harm's way after Mayor Lori Lightfoot requested their help to fill shortages in patrols caused by her vaccine mandates.

Lightfoot has been threatening to fire 3,000 Chicago police officers who have refused to comply with her tyrannical mandates, and these sheriffs are refusing to bail her out.

"[The Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System] typically responds to emergency situations where there is no opportunity for planning," Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain said last week. "This situation to me is much different."

Americans don't like vaccine mandates, and they really don't like federal thugs threatening parents.

In another COSA/Trafalgar poll, 57% of voters say they do not approve of AG Merrick Garland's attempts to insert the FBI into local school board meetings while only 19.8 percent support it. Those opposing include more than one-third of Democrats — 37.2%.

While the results of this survey break somewhat along party lines, Biden and Democrat leaders should be terrified that more than one-third of his party have noticed — and dislike—their attempts to bring their radical agenda to local schools.

Just as with vaccine mandates, Biden's education agenda is already starting to crumble.

In response to the National School Boards Association union sending a letter characterizing upset parents at school board meetings as potential 'domestic terrorists,' U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland responded by sending a now infamous memo authorizing the involvement of the FBI.

In the ensuing outrage and pushback from Americans, the union recently issued a letter apologizing for the language used in its initial statement. But it appears to be too little too late, as states are now severing ties with the NSBA over its actions.

Students in Loudoun County, Virginia, walked out of class in protest of their school board's attempts to cover up a sexual assault while pushing critical race theory; New York restaurants are refusing to comply with the city's vaccine mandate; and a restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is satirically requiring proof of un-vaccination to get a table.

There are examples of the Great Pushback everywhere you turn, but the mainstream media and political elites have been ignoring them. And Tuesday's election shows they have done so at their own peril.

Poll after poll shows the American people are sick and tired of Biden's agenda, and their opinions won't be changing any time soon.

The latest NBC poll showed 71% of Americans now think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

And when asked who would best handle important national issues like crime, inflation, national security, the economy, and border security, Americans give Republicans a double-digit lead over Biden's party.

Those numbers explain what is happening in airports, school board meetings, restaurants, and football stadiums all across the country.

It's happening among Democrats, independents, and Republicans, and it's happening even as the Democrats look to push their radical agenda through Congress.

They may still succeed in passing some version of their "Build Back Better" boondoggle, but they won't be so smug when the Great Pushback hits its stride and sweeps them out of office in 2022 and 2024.
