Let me start by saying that there’s no cure for stupidity – or for stupid people in general.
So today in stupid, we have ,Audrey Whitlock of Reopen NC – she’s the leader of an anti-lockdown group that protested coronavirus shutdowns in North Carolina – she has also tested positive for the coronavirus. She said she contracted the virus but has not shown any symptoms, and STILL wants to protest despite being forced into quarantine.
Now this woman is whining about them violating her “FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS”. The crazy lady complained on Facebook that her “forced” self-quarantine violated her First Amendment rights.
- “The reality is that modern society has not been able to eradicate contagious viruses. A typical public health quarantine would occur in a medical facility. I have been told not to participate in public or private accommodations as requested by the government, and therefore denied my 1st amendment right of freedom of religion. It has been insinuated by others that if I go out, I could be arrested for denying a quarantine order.”
,She said an arrest in that situation would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.
,No it doesn’t. They do NOT apply in her case, AT ALL.
,Forcing her to stay home in quarantine does NOT impede or censor her freedom of speech and expression. She’s still ranting and raving like a lunatic on social media and nobody is curtailing her for it. So it’s obvious that she didn’t get the gestapo treatment she’s accusing her officials of.
,If she violates her two-week stay-at-home quarantine and gets her ass arrested, it’s not a violation of her rights – it’s just her breaking the damn law.
,Just because she’s asymptomatic doesn’t mean she’s allowed to go out and wreck someone else’s life. That simply means she’s a CARRIER of the disease and CAN infect other people who are more susceptible to the damn virus than she is. And that is exactly what her health officials and her state government is trying to prevent.
She and ,ReOpen NC said it would hold rallies in Raleigh every Tuesday until the governor’s restrictions are lifted. But guess what that’ll do? It will force an extention of the stay-at-home orders because stupid people like her REFUSE to listen.
,In fact, it’s already happened because their state governor, Roy Cooper has indeed
