Video emerged this week showing restaurant patrons being arrested in New York City for not showing their “vaccination” papers.
Life Site News reported on the incident stating that four people were arrested at an Applebee’s in Queens after trying to order food without providing proof of “vaccination.” The individuals were “staging a sit-in to protest a citywide mandate requiring individuals to show proof of vaccination as a condition of entry to public establishments.” (Related: COVID Policy is the Civil Rights Issue of Our Time)
The video shows one woman saying as she’s being arrested: “I lost my job in the school system. Can’t work, can’t eat …. I want to eat, like the free American that I am. And you guys are arresting me over this f***ing bulls**t.”
As police are leaving the restaurant, one protester is heard asking: “What happened to the Constitution, freedom of speech?”
Another says: “In America, guys, you have no freedom left, no rights at all.”
Outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio dictated the mandate to show “vaccination” proof which took effect on Dec. 14. The mandate is that individuals must be doubled jabbed with only a single shot being considered insufficient under the dictate.
Those arrests happened a day after de Blasio’s dictate took effect, and the protest appears to be in response to a similar incident that occurred the day the mandate took effect, according to Matt Agorist for The Free Thought Project.
“This week, the jack-booted policy came to fruition as police were seen on video arresting six individuals for attempting to eat at a Cheesecake Factory restaurant without showing proof of vaccination,” Agorist wrote. “The cops loaded up the dirty antivaxxer scum into a police paddy wagon and hauled them off to jail for daring to have a bite to eat without showing their papers.”
Agorist added: “When police showed up, many of the folks refused to leave and were subsequently arrested for trespassing. While this is technically trespassing, the idea of removing an individual from a restaurant based on their personal medical choices that harm no one is most assuredly not in the interests of a free society. Therefore, these folks were engaged in civil disobedience whose actions will help to expose this authoritarianism and we support them.”
Those arrests took place on Dec. 14.
A Cheesecake Factory spokesperson, Alethea Rowe, made a statement: “This was an unfortunate incident. The company is simply complying with the local ordinance concerning COVID-19 vaccine requirements.”
Agorist’s response: “Indeed, it is unfortunate that US citizens are being forcibly removed by police from a restaurant for attempting to eat dinner based solely on their personal medical choices.”
Although these arrests appear to be the first under the “vaccine” mandate in NYC, such tyrannical moves have been commonplace since the creation of the COVID-19 “pandemic.” Tyranny has also not been relegated to only Democrat states.
This month, Terry Wright was sentenced to jail time in Texas by a jury. She was the elderly woman seen in a viral video in March being tackled and arrested for not wearing a cloth over her face in a Galveston bank. Despite the bank not allowing Wright access to her own money being held there, Wright was the one viewed as a criminal in the eyes of the so-called “law enforcement.”
In September of 2020, a mother was tased and arrested at a middle school football game for not wearing a mask outside.
Another disturbing mask story came from California. Reason Magazine reported on Maurice Monk who was effectively given a death sentence for not wearing a mask. Monk was arrested in June after refusing to wear a mask on a bus. After missing a court appearance, for the non-crime of not wearing a mask, Monk was jailed and died while in custody.
David Leach, for the Strident Conservative, wrote about school children in Germany being required to stand up in front of the class each day to declare their vax status. Although overseas, how long will it take to see that here? Could it actually already be here but haven’t seen it yet?
Leach made the case, in another post, that the COVID tyranny is aligned to the rise of Nazi Germany in the 1940’s.
“Vaccine mandates are the epitome of government overreach when it comes to the legality of forcing medical procedures onto citizens without their consent or restricting their movements until they comply,” Leach wrote.
Leach added: “And while the degrees and types of experimentation are different, this overreach is clearly reminiscent of the forced medical experimentation that occurred in Nazi Germany.”
