2:00 PM PT -- Speaking of those Orange County protests, it looks like they're still raging on well into the the weekend -- and it appears someone really wants their GD 31 flavors!!!
Check out this photo that was shot in front of the Baskin-Robbins on Main Street in Huntington Beach Saturday morning -- ya got this lovely lady screaming at the top of her lungs in front of the ice cream shop with a sign that reads, "Give Me Liberty or Give me Death"
Probably not what Patrick Henry had in mind when he wrote this speech while he was trying to rally troops against the Red Coats, but that's how the good people of HB feel about these stay-at-home orders, apparently. The funny thing is ... the liberty they want might just cost them death in the process. Anything for an overpriced double-scoop, it seems.
A guy working on PresidentTrump's newest task force to help reopen the nation just compared the fools taking to the streets to protest quarantine life ... to the late, great Rosa Parks.
GOP economist and strategist Stephen Moore -- whom Trump's administration has tapped to be part of the White House council to reopen the country -- made the absurd comment this weekend in a story published by WaPo, detailing the growing demonstrations nationwide.
What he said ... "I think there's a boiling point that has been reached and exceeded. I call these people the modern-day Rosa Parks -- they are protesting against injustice and a loss of liberties." Yep -- that came out of his mouth.
Of course, the guy's getting ripped online for the ridiculous comparison. In case we had to spell it out ... Rosa Parks fought to open up the United States to people of all colors. A lot of these protesters want the country opened up so they can go to the beach.
Not to say there aren't millions of people truly suffering now with the shutdown ... but still, comparing these protesters to Rosa Parks -- get real.
As wrong as Moore is, it's telling that his sentiment has connected with some folks -- including those demonstrators who are flocking out in droves. The President hasn't done us any favors, by tweeting to his followers to "LIBERATE" certain states, squarely contradicting his statement the day before when he said the governors will decide when their states open, and he contracted that statement the day before that by basically saying he was King and only HE could reopen the country.
LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!
