Florida State Representative Randy Fine has recently restarted posting Covid-19 data on his official State Representative Facebook page, and has received tremendous backlash from his base for it. So much so, that he has made a series of posts trying to justify his position which has been in contrast to his own behaviors in the past.
Fine is joining several other conservatives who have recently began pushing the vaccine hard as cases in Florida skyrocket with 1 out of ever 5 cases of the new delta variant in the nation originating right here in the sunshine state. Fine stated in an interview with News 6 “I think part of the problem we’re having right now is everyone is behaving like COVID is over. People aren’t wearing their masks and doing things the way they had before the pandemic. That’s OK if you got vaccinated, but it’s not if you haven’t,” said Fine.
His message: Get vaccinated or protect yourself by wearing a mask.
Fine posted the interview on his Facebook page which quickly gathered much criticism. The Facebook thread shows that there are 335 comments currently on the post however, many of those comments are gone because Fine has deleted a lot of the negative criticism towards himself as he often does, and then blocks the same constituents from his page.
