Bill Lee Blames Everyone But Himself

Phil Williams:  “Why not listen to health professionals and impose a mask mandate?”

Governor Bill Lee: “That’s not a unified voice. There’s a lot of argument about what’s the right tactic.”

Lee is still a deaf ear to the cries of Tennessee’s medical community despite our horrific numbers.

 

Lee’s Failed COVID19 “Strategy”

“We believe our #COVID19 strategy may well be working BETTER than a statewide mask mandate.”
 
Gov. Bill Lee has the audacity to claim that his “strategy” is working; meanwhile, Tennessee continues to have record-breaking case increases and Lee doesn’t even follow his own advice.

Nothing Gov. Lee Does is “Nice”

Rep. John Ray Clemmons doesn’t hold back in his searing criticisms of Lee’s failure of leadership not only throughout COVID, but since his tenure began.

Justin Jones joins #HollerHour

Fresh off the heels off of leading the charge to occupy the plaza outside Tennessee’s State Capitol for over 60 days, activist Justin Jones joins the show to talk about his experience and where to go from here.
“The people are so powerful that it makes Gov. Bill Lee who’s the highest authority in our state so afraid that he won’t even come out of the office.”

“We know who Gov. Bill Lee is, he dressed up in a Confederate uniform as a student. Today he doesn’t have that uniform on, but he still has that mentality.”

Governor Lee Plays Dumb

“I haven’t read that report.” 🤔‬ ‪Gov. Bill Lee plays dumb about Trump’s admission that he intentionally “downplayed” a virus that has killed 190,000 Americans, including ~2000 Tennesseans. ‬

Bill Lee to sign Protest Criminalization Bill

Governor Bill Lee announced that he will be signing a draconian anti-protest bill which includes making it a felony punishable by up to six years in prison to pitch a tent outside the Capitol overnight. This flies in the face of his claims of wanting to pass meaningful criminal justice reform, a term that House Majority Leader William Lamberth had the gall to use when referring to this bill.

Not only will this legislation have severe implications for protesters, but it will have far-reaching ramifications on the people in Tennessee who are experiencing homelessness.

Republican Legislators drafted this bill with the protesters who have been occupying the plaza outside the State Capitol in mind in an effort to silence them and their demands. We are left wondering if any members of the Tennessee Republican Party have learned from the late great John Lewis, or if they have considered that perhaps they are participating in government overreach, which they are so quick to decry when Democrats propose regulations.
