WATCH: Young Idahoans Makes Statement, Burning Masks in Public Protest


We seem to be fast approaching the beginning of the end of this long nightmare surrounding COVID-19.

It was almost a year ago to the week that the reality of what was happening had begun to set in.  We watched China deal with the highly contagious virus, and many believed that they had done their homework, and possibly even contained the illness largely within their borders.

Just a few weeks later we were watching Italy stack loved ones in refrigerated trucks as morgues overflowed, followed by similar harrowing scene in New York City.

Now after an incredible workup of several different COVID-19 vaccines, even some of the most cautious among us, namely the Biden Administration, seems to think that every adult American who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by the end of May.

This triumphant spirit, along with what seemed like a fair bit of frustration, manifested itself this week in Idaho.

Video footage of the mask-burning rally in Boise, Idaho, captured people of ages, including a handful of children, throwing their protective face-coverings into a fiery garbage can.

One kid, in the 14-second video – which was shared to Twitter and has since obtained more than 37,000 views – is heard saying: “Here fire, you hungry?

“Here, here’s another mask.”

A poster board seen in the footage read: “No masks, no mandates. Our face, our mind.”

Another sign had a Benjamin Franklin quote written on it: “Those who give up liberty to purchase safety deserve neither liberty or safety.”

The scene was soon broadcast on social media.

Texas announced last week that they would be ending their statewide mask mandate, as well as allow business to reopen to full capacity.  The move was lauded by many, but some of the usual suspects were predictably concerned.
