According to Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News, “Angry demonstrators took to the streets in North Carolina and Missouri on Tuesday to voice their discontent at their states’ stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.”
And these aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill protesters either!
These are all the people who are normally too busy working and don’t have the time to protest!
“The protests in Raleigh, N.C. and Jefferson City, Mo., are the latest in a series of protests across the country against state lockdown orders – fueled by tweets of support from President Trump and the economic unease caused by the coronavirus.”
“Holding handmade signs with slogans like ‘My Rights Are Essential’ and ‘ReOpenNC,’ hundreds of people marched through downtown Raleigh while chanting ‘Freedom Now.’”
“Similar signs along with a slew of American flags were seen as people began to gather outside the Missouri Capitol building.”
“Protests against the lockdown orders have cropped up in numerous states over the past few weeks as some Americans have become frustrated with being told to stay at home and with the economic freefall the virus has caused.”
The virus didn’t cause the “freefall…,” it was the liberal media’s and the democrats’ reaction to it this time around that caused it.
“The federal government said Thursday that 5.2 million more Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the four-week total to about 22 million out of a work force of 159 million — easily the worst stretch of U.S. job losses on record. The losses translate to about one in seven workers.”
“Last week, hundreds of cars, trucks and SUVs descended on Michigan’s state capital Wednesday afternoon as part of a noisy protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far. The same day, a number of people gathered outside the Kentucky Capitol building to protest Gov. Andy Beshear’s shutdown orders, while more gathered in Virginia to protest on Thursday.”
“Several hundred people rallied in Texas’ capital over the weekend, chanting ‘Let us work!’ Many clamored for an immediate lifting of restrictions in a state where more than 1 million have filed for unemployment since the crisis began.”
“In Indianapolis, more than 200 people stood close together outside the governor’s mansion, carrying American flags and signs demanding that Gov. Holcomb lift restrictions.”
“Elsewhere, a few hundred demonstrators waved signs outside the Statehouse in New Hampshire.”
“More protests this week are planned in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Wisconsin.”
“While many governors have pleaded with their constituents to not protest during the public health crisis as it may only cause more people to get sick, the demonstrations – mainly organized by conservative groups – have found an ally in the president.”
‘“LIBERATE MINNESOTA!’ ‘LIBERATE MICHIGAN!’ ‘LIBERATE VIRGINIA,’ Trump said in a tweet-storm in over the weekend in which he also lashed out at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, for criticizing the federal response.”
“Four states – Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas – already have lifted some restrictions or plan to this week.”
“Despite the protests and opening up of some states, many lawmakers and public health officials warn that the country is far from safe when it comes to dealing with the virus.”
The point is we’ll never be “safe.”
We were never “safe” to begin with.
If the democrats’ ultimate goal is to be safe…, here’s some suggestions…,
…quit letting criminals out of jail early so they can prey on law abiding citizens again!
…knock off this sanctuary city garbage, which protects and hides illegal immigrants with criminal records from federal authorities.
…support President Trump in his efforts to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, criminals, drugs, and human traffickers along our southern border.
…stop promoting drug use and homelessness in your big cities.
So, there. If you democrats really want to promote safety, those are some good places to start with.
