Fascism, It’s What’s For Dinner

So I saw this story the other day and I assumed it was something from The Onion or The Babylon Bee. The Raleigh (NC) Police Department arrested people who were peacefully protesting North Carolina’s shutdown.

Sadly, this actually happened in the United States of America.

Police arrested protesters at a #reopenNC rally in North Carolina, where restless citizens demanded businesses in the state be allowed to reopen.

North Carolina is one of 43 states currently under a stay at home order over the coronavirus pandemic. Protesters gathered flying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, and one person could be seen holding a sign reading “freedom isn’t free.”

The Raleigh Police Department tweeted that the protesters were in violation of Democratic North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s executive order, and asked them to disperse.

When asked what part of the governor’s order the protesters were violating, the Raleigh PD Twitter page responded with, “Protesting is a non-essential activity.” Are you f**king kidding me?

Dear citizens of North Carolina, please submit your lawsuits in an orderly fashion, and see to it this despicable governor is removed from office. Thank you.

  1. And yet, there are people saying how stupid people are to be protesting. The vast majority of people are sheep and see no reason to object to all the overreach that is going on.
