Who’s the Tyrant?
As I see these so-called “patriots” resisting stay-at-home orders, I can’t help but wonder: if you’re so concerned about the Constitution and government overreach, why not protest the dictatorship taking shape right in front of your face? I realize this is a rhetorical question. Most of these people are probably unaware of Bill Barr attempting to use the pandemic to suspend habeas corpus and detain people indefinitely, or the White House blockading desperately-needed PPE from some states, forcing them to make clandestine purchases.
