With the American thanksgiving a few days away, the Democrat Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, is calling on citizens to snitch on their friends, family, neighbours and enemies if they are violating the state’s COVID-1984 restrictions that limit household gathering to a maximum of six people.
If caught people could face fines and even jail time. Brown’s call empowering snitches has not gone over well.
Gov. Kate Brown (D-OR) is experiencing backlash for saying people should call police on people who violate the state’s coronavirus restrictions on Thanksgiving.
“This is a travesty that’s happening in our state,” Tootie Smith, chair of Clackamas County, said Wednesday in reaction to the ordinance announced on November 17:
“How dare Governor Brown think she’s going to come out, she’s going to send the police into people’s homes and arrest them and fine them for having a Thanksgiving meal with their family, while at [the] same time she lets rioters and anarchists destroy downtown in the city of Portland. That’s hypocrisy.“
“We don’t need to be treated as second-rate slaves in our own homes,” she continued.
But people are tiring of the tyranny and the lockdowns, as a recent poll revealed that nearly 60% of Americans plan to meet with family at Thanksgiving, with or without the state’s permission. The poll also indicated the last thing they want to talk about is politics. READ: Poll: Majority of Americans Will Spend Thanksgiving with Their Families Despite Pandemic
