A peaceful rebellion is taking place worldwide. Citizens are taking political action by refusing to wear face masks and going mask-free everywhere they can. I am a local liberty activist who is promoting this movement, which I call “The Great American Mask Rip-Off.”
Many outspoken (but censored) doctors, scientists, and communicators have inspired this nationwide movement. For example, Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD says that face masks pose serious risks to healthy people. Dr. Sheri Tenpenny, DO claims that face masks do nothing to prevent the spread of viruses. Physician and civil rights attorney, Simone Gold, MD asserts that mask policies are based on pseudoscience instead of science. She says that, from a civil libertarian perspective, wearing a face mask is “extraordinarily dangerous” because “you are showing the leaders that we’ll comply with anything and that we will stand for nothing. It’s critically important that you don’t wear a mask.” Author Allan Stevo has written a book on this issue called, “Face Masks in One Lesson.”
I encourage all citizens who don’t believe in masks to consider going mask-free, anywhere and everywhere they can. I have developed a mask-exemption badge as a tool to make mask-free shopping easier.
I have personally been successful shopping mask-free for the past three months in dozens of local shops with a high success rate. Now, I am teaching other people how to use the badge to successfully shop mask-free.
I have been promoting and dispensing my mask-exemption badges all over Ventura County at rallies, shopping malls, and church parking lots. Bright banners reading, “Get a Mask Exemption Badge Here!” adorn my display table. My table attracts attention! People take photos of my table or give me a thumbs up when driving by. KABC-TV Channel 7 news broadcasted a news report which mentioned my table.
Demand for my mask exemption badges is brisk. I have already distributed over 700 badges in Ventura County.
Several thought leaders believe that face masks are part of a broader political agenda to erode our human rights. Author Patrick Wood says that all five elements of the First Amendment are currently being violated in the name of COVID. He believes that coercive mask-wearing is one feature of a “coup d’etat” currently underway, led by a cabal of “elites.” He says that the political and economic system which these elites are trying to foist upon the world is “technocracy,” an authoritarian system first envisioned in the 1930s. International trial attorney Reiner Fuellmich is preparing a series of evidence-supported lawsuits that allege that scientific fraud is the foundation supporting the entire virus panic of 2020, and that this constitutes a crime against humanity.
Global political leaders monitor mask compliance and use it as a simple measure of citizen submission to their authoritarian political agenda. Some political analysts believe that this authoritarian agenda will likely continue to grow stronger unless or until enough citizens stop complying with COVID edicts that they don’t support. Ever more tyrannical infringements on our liberties could be proposed in the future in the name of “fighting viruses.” This could include an unending series of government-mandated injections of pharmaceutical products against our will, or the rounding up of citizens who refuse to comply and locking them up in internment facilities, all justified under the pretext of fighting an alleged invisible enemy. We must stop this freedom-killing agenda before it becomes too late.
I regularly discuss these political issues with other activists in an online discussion group that I organize, called the “American Freedom and Anti-Lockdown Discussion and Activism Group.” If you love liberty, you are welcome to join our group. You can also learn more about these issues by watching any of the videos listed here.
Stay free. Go mask-free!
