‘Don’t be a sheep’: Washington sheriff urges residents to defy mask order
Sheriff Robert Snaza, a Republican from Lewis County, said people should break the coronavirus safety order during a speech in a church parking lot Tuesday, according to footage posted by a Daily Chronicle photographer.
“In case you guys didn’t hear, Gov. Inslee in his infinite wisdom has decided after over a hundred and some odd days that we should all wear face masks — inside and out,” Snaza declared into a bullhorn while wearing a police uniform and no face cover.
“Here’s what I say: Don’t be a sheep.”
The defiant pep rally came several hours after the Democratic governor ordered residents to wear masks both inside and outside — or face a $1,000 fine and up to 90 days in jail — to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Before the speech Tuesday, the crowd gathered at a billboard that reads “Oh no, a virus! Quick, Burn the Bill of Rights” next to Interstate 5 in Napavine. They had flocked to the sign to oppose a petition circulating to have it removed.
Klickitat County Sheriff Bob Songer also spoke out against the governor’s order, calling Inslee an “idiot” who is “overstepping his bounds [and] violating people’s constitutional rights,” according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Inslee’s statewide mandate requires people over the age of 5 to wear face coverings, with exceptions in outdoor spaces where people can remain more than 6 feet from each other.
This study on cloth masks cautions against the use of cloth masks:
“This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution AGAINST the use of cloth masks…Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection.”
The Facebook fact checkers are fast to disagree but who do they work for? Who funds them?
The complete U-turn in mask wearing is beyond absurd given that the following scenario can easily happen to a strong, healthy 19 year old. Remember, cloth masks are not the same as n95 masks!
Many doctors and scientists have come out against cloth mask wearing!
