Heh - pushing back against a tyrant wannabe

| No Comments

Looks like our Governor Inslee is getting some pushback - from NOQ Report:

Jay Inslee forced to move press conference inside over hecklers: ‘We will not comply, we are not sheep’
Washington Governor Jay Inslee has been at the forefront of both the original coronavirus lockdowns and now the “2nd wave” of lockdowns being passed down by authoritarians across the country. Fear of the disease, which thus far has been far less deadly than the carnage caused by the economic catastrophe caused by the lockdowns, has given Democrats like Inslee (as well as some Republicans) carte blanche in pushing their control agenda.

Protesters at his press conference today voiced their concerns. Though the group was small, they were vocal enough to prompt the governor to move the briefing indoors and away fro the yelling crowd.

Ashley Stubbs was there and has some video:

And of course:

Once inside, he proceeded to lay out his plans to attempt enforcement of his executive order calling for mandatory face masks, indoors and outdoors. While acknowledging he’s aware there will be less compliance with this round of lockdown orders, he offered no concrete plan on how he intends to punish those who break his mandate.

Part of his and other authoritarians’ push to ramp up the lockdowns included the standard fearmongering we’ve seen since the coronavirus became an issue in the United States. He declared that one hospital was nearly at capacity with only one ICU bed remaining. Notably, he did not share statistics from other nearby hospitals or give a total on ICU capacity. Anecdotal data has been a hallmark of the Governor’s push for lockdowns from the beginning.

Anecdotal data as well as the output from the computer models - these are the models that have been consistently well over 10 to 100 times higher than actual observed data. Fail.
