‘The fundamental thing is to guarantee liberty,’ says Mexican president when asked why he almost never wears a mask

Mexicos’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggested on Wednesday that politicians who impose lockdowns or curfews to limit Covid-19 are acting like dictators.

The comments came as López Obrador once again fended off questions about why he almost never wears a face mask, saying it was a question of liberty.

The Mexican leader said pandemic measures that limit people’s movements are “fashionable among authorities … who want to show they are heavy-handed, dictatorship.

“A lot of them are letting their authoritarian instincts show,” he said, adding “the fundamental thing is to guarantee liberty.”

López Obrador’s comments came a day after the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that Mexico was “in bad shape” with the pandemic and urged its leaders to take the coronavirus seriously.

“The number of increasing cases and deaths in Mexico is very worrisome,” said the WHO director general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on Monday.

“We would like to ask Mexico to be very serious,” he said. “We have said it in general, wearing a mask is important, hygiene is important and physical distancing is important and we expect leaders to be examples …”

In his comments on Wednesday, it was unclear if the Mexican leader was referring to authorities in other countries, or the mainly opposition-party local leaders in Mexico.

Many governments across the world have effectively implemented lockdowns or limits on when people can leave their homes, something López Obrador has fiercely resisted doing, arguing some people live day-to-day on what they earn on the streets.

Some local governments in Mexico have tried to use police to enforce limits on masks or movement, which resulted in scandals of abusive behavior by police.

López Obrador argues such measures should be voluntary.

“Everyone is free. Whoever wants to wear a face mask and feel safer is welcome to do so,” López Obrador said.

The Mexican government has gone against the grain of international anti-virus practices in two ways. It has offered changing and contradictory advice on the utility of wearing face masks, and has described mass testing as wasteful and pointless.

Mexico has seen almost 107,000 test-confirmed deaths so far, the fourth-highest toll in the world, but Mexico does relatively little testing and officials estimate the real death toll is closer to 150,000.

  2. Wow, President Obrador is a real hero. Of course the sheep will find him offensive. They are full of baahs instead of researching the truth about the CV19. Learn about the misuse of the PCR test too if you are ever going to do a meaningful research.

  3. Hi,
    In trying to understand where people are coming from from different countries & understanding different people’s cultural thinking.
    People should have their choices: wearing face mask or not.
    It is different if people are at their work places: then the employers set the rules.
    Every country has a different way of viewing the pandemic situation.
    And they have a responsibility to their people for people’s public health health & safety.

  4. Long live President Andres Manuel Obrador. Mexico, be proud of your elected leader! He is standing for the people of your wonderful country.

    And now from your neighbor to the north: While many leaders (not President Trump) would like to see us all cowering in fear behind masks and behind doors at home, I’m glad to see that at least some Californians in charge have good, common sense, recognize truth and will not be bullied. The Sheriff of Riverside county in southern California is standing firm against lockdowns and arrests. This video is very encouraging, and I hope like this sheriff and your President Obrador, many more here in the US will wake up!

  5. The Mexican president is correct and it is time people stopped disempowering themselves by doing what these tyrants order. Mask wearing is a civil demand they cannot enforce it by law unless you contract with them do not say you understand them or put a title in front of your name just say I am (first name) ( surname) a live woman man or child I do not understand you and I do not stand under you. Freedom and liberty is very important the pandemic is a mere flue hyped up by their media for their agenda it is all a deception to bring in a new word order and their Orwellian One world Government . This must be stopped. Time to get rid of WHO and big Pharma and all these skunks who are making money out of making people sick with their medicines to make money and cull the population. Go on line to the Court of Common Law Birth Certificates and fill in your details free of charge to own your own fiction and make it official that you are a live woman man or child – time to dump the slave papers and stop contracting with the corporations who think they own you . Go into the website today and have a look around see Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeons court papers under community – new- with charges of criminal fraud, abuse of power, attempting to enslave the people, kidnapping, treason and genocide of the people. There is your proof that the main stream media belongs to the corporations who want to keep the truth from you as none of them reported this I even sent this information to the Courier and Post editor who did not reply or report the truth – that speaks volumes. Switch off your TV. learn to think for yourself . Common Law is the law of the land it is at the top then comes sovereignty then comes parliament and not the other way around – learn about your rights and see that your mother unwittingly gave you away when she signed a birth certificate she contracted with the establishment who then owned you. That is why you must take back ownership and register as a live woman man or child the corporations cannot contract with a living man woman or child and all their statutory laws are under maritime law which gives you the status of a dead person or a vessel lost at sea to be plundered and raped – Your birth certificate under statutory law is a contract it is your slave papers. The time to take action on that is today if you are wise and make sure all your family have sent in their details to the court of common law especially children who under this Covid bill can be taken from you along with your property and this has already started – it is illegal action on a live person. Know your rights! Take control NOW!
