It’s like we are living in Nazi Germany when neighbors and people can rat out others for not following government mandates. Now those people are receiving death threats. The old saying states it best, “Two wrongs don’t make a right!” The state of Washington is currently going through this as government officials set it to where people can call in or take pictures of those who do not stay six feet apart, wear masks, or gather in groups. People who are doing this are now receiving death threats.
There are two sides to look at this and realize this is not the way to go about this. People’s rights are being taken away, and we are coming full circle to what happened in Nazi Germany when citizens were called upon by the government to turn their neighbors and strangers into the authorities.
Back then, it was the Jews and those of a different culture or belief of what Nazi Germany stood for who faced being handed over to what many saw as their own death. History is repeating itself, and people are waking up to this fact.
Those who wish to stay at home and keep the country shut down are posting information not only to the authorities but are putting up personal information of those who are violating the government mandates. This is how far Democrats and the media have poisoned the minds of some people.
Two groups are protesting Democrat Governor Jay Inslee’s orders to stay at home. Reopen Washington State, and Washington Three Percenters are also posting on Facebook personal information of those who turn them in and also post their information on social media. This has led to threats from people who are tired of being told what to do.
According to local reports, these individuals are being harassed and are being threatened with violence. President Trump wanted the people to see who is really causing all the division in the country, and now people are waking up to the fact that only Democratic governors are stirring the pot within their states. The Left is behind all of this that we are witnessing.
The Washington Three Percenters, which are known as “God-Fearing Patriots,” put up the message, “Want to snitch on your neighbor? Don’t expect to hide behind you (sic) computer screen.” A spreadsheet was added with names and personal information of those who complained to local and state officials.
Though this is not the proper way to go about this in retaliation, the state governments have left no choice but to try and do something because they are not working in our favor to keep our rights intact. No one can really blame either side because one side is concerned and deathly afraid of COVID-19, while the other side wants our freedom and our rights back.
Chelsea Hodgson, who is a spokesperson for the Washington Joint Information Center, told local reporters, “Several individuals made public disclosure requests for the complaints that have been filed to date. This list was likely generated and shared by one of those individuals.”
Those who filed complaints did not file anonymously, so “stupid is, as stupid does.” They really have no one to blame but themselves. It is wrong to turn in people who are doing nothing wrong and just want to go back to normal living.
Hate has been spread by the seeds of the Left and the deep state, which caused messages such as these from one phone message, “You got 48 hours to get the [expletive] out of Washington, or I am coming for you, and your loved ones.” Another phone message stated, “I hope you choke on the [expletive] virus.”
The woman who reported the protesters, who were protesting peacefully, stated, “If I knew my personal information would be given to people who would use it to attack me. I was just trying to be a good citizen.” Being a good citizen is not ratting out someone or a group who is expressing their rights and freedoms. But this is what type of division Democrats cause.
What most people do not see in this type of action is the alternative and outcome of their actions. Neither party is really wrong other than the threats. Matt Marshall, the leader of the protesters, stated, “Business owners who are going under have a right to face their accuser.” Outcries of the protesters declare, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” Sound familiar?
