Restauranteur Receives Death Threats Over GOP Event

This is a new low…even for the unhinged mob on the left.

One of the most bizarre talking points of the mainstream media over the course of the last few months has been their insistence that the left is not “unhinged” or an angry “mob”.

Turn on any of the 24-hour pontification platforms and you’re sure to hear the same old, tired line:  “They’re not a mob, they’re just protesting and exercising their First Amendment rights”.

Sure…tell that to the folks who had to repair the campus of UC Berkeley after the left attempted to quarantine the right to free speech in February of 2017.  Or you can look to just last week, when an militant Antifa posse instigated a brawl with a group called the “Proud Boys” in New York City that has led to several arrests.

And do we really need to bring up the reality of James T. Hodgkinson, the GOP baseball practice shooter?

The left is unhinged, at least in these examples, and I highly doubt that you’ll find left-leaning commentators who’ll defend men like Hodgkinson as “exercising his First Amendment rights”.

A restauranteur in Tennessee has recalled his harrowing tale of liberal lunacy to radio host Todd Starnes this week, and his experience is one that we wouldn’t wish on our most wicked of enemies.

Tom Courtney, owner of Courtney’s Restaurant, told the Todd Starnes Radio Show the entire staff has been subjected to an avalanche of hate from a far-left mob.

“I can’t begin to tell you how awful it was,” Courtney said on the nationally-syndicated radio program. “They called me a racist, bigot, called me an ‘MF’ plenty of times and (one guy) told me to watch my back.”

Courtney was infuriated because the leftists even went after a 17-year-old who works at the meat-and-three.

“I had a cashier crying as she was answering the phone,” he said. ”

“If you are threatening a 17-year-old minor and threatening people to watch your back – when does it stop being freedom of speech and become a threat,” Courtney wondered.

The controversy started after he posted photos of Blackburn serving food and greeting people at a campaign breakfast. Courtney said a number of groups take advantage of their banquet facilities.

Courtney’s rationalization was cogent and impossible to argue with.

“I’m a restaurant owner. I’m here to make money. I feed people. That’s what I do,” he said.

And the restaurant made good money from the Blackburn event and he said the staff made “great money in tips.”

Folks, let me put it to you straight:  When we have to choose where to eat based on whether or not they cooked food for a specific public servant, something is horribly wrong with the political climate in our country.

Brooklyn Bridge Shut Down by Anti-Vax First Responders’ Protest

Is the liberal left paying attention yet?

Published

For many on the left side of the aisle, there appears to be a false yet pervasive stereotype of the anti-vaccine crowd.  They see the un-inoculated as an amalgam of wild, unkempt Americans clutching their guns and gadsden flags, mixed in with a few of the holistic backwoods types who use homemade deodorant as well.

This is because the left can only see the right as inferior to them, and this gross oversimplification of the issue helps them to process the situation at a level of intensity that suits their cognitive capacity.

But they are wrong, and this ugly characterization is one of the most potent reasons for America’s current political divide.

In fact, the anti-vaccine movement is a highly diverse one, embodied by Americans from all walks of life, including a vast number of fist responders and healthcare workers, who are, by definition, some of the folks at the highest risk for coming into contact with COVID-19.

They, along with others, made their voices heard in New York City on Monday.

New York City municipal employees are marching across the Brooklyn Bridge Monday against the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The protest, which is set to end in front of City Hall on the Manhattan side of the bridge, is billed as an anti-mandate protest on behalf of nearly 50,000 NYC employees who have yet to be vaccinated with a deadline just days away.

Traffic is shut down on the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan as of 11:49 a.m., according to police.

The scene was captured by a great many social media users.

How the left is going to spin this is still a mystery, but there is no doubt that they’re going to try.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
