After more than half of a year battling the coronavirus pandemic in earnest, the anti-mask contingent of America is growing ever more agitated.
They’ve spent months being told to put masks on, sometimes nicely, often times with an air of ambiguous legal authority. When they refuse, they are shunned as “Karen”, and have their faces thrown all over social media in an attempted public shaming.
Well it appears as though they just aren’t going to take it anymore.
A group of anti-mask demonstrators marched through a Florida Target to Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” encouraging others to liberate their faces by removing their masks.
The group reportedly marched through a Target in Ft. Lauderdale on Tuesday, encouraging shoppers around them to take off their masks as well[…]
The crowd had a simple message:
“Alright. We’re tired of shopping with masks on,” Chris Nelson, who organized the event, said while holding up his phone as “We’re Not Gonna Take It” began to play in the background.
“And now, we’re taking our masks off because we’re done with it,” he said as others began taking their masks off in the store.
“Breathe. Breathe. You’re Americans. Breathe,” one woman said as she marched through the store.
Cristina Gomez, the Florida woman who made headlines after speaking out against a mask mandate before the Palm Beach County Commission meeting over the summer, was among the protesters. During the meeting, she stated that masks are killing people and told commissioners that “We the People are waking up” while warning against the “devil’s law.”
“Take off that mask. That’s the only way it’s going to work if we all unite!” she exclaimed. “It’s all about choice.”
And, just because you have to see this to believe it:
Given the viral popularity of the video, it wouldn’t be surprising to see this sort of revolution grow more frequent in the coming days.
