Pro-Trump Lemmings Hold Mask Burning Ceremony In Florida
A group of anti-maskers in Delray Beach, Florida, marched in protest of Palm Beach County’s decision to re-extend its mask mandate through November 22, ending their demonstration with a mask burning.
- Local channel WPTV News reported that the group “took to the streets Saturday afternoon in Delray Beach to display their frustrations and demand their reinstated freedoms.”
Chris Nelson, lead organizer of the "Reopen South Florida" rally, points to the county's mortality rate that has fallen.
"What we're seeing right now is a dangerous precedent," Nelson said. "If they can tell me that I cannot buy or sell anything without a mask on, they can tell me that I can't buy or sell without proof of a vaccine, that I took a vaccine, and it could go on and on."
- Dr. Alina Alonso, head of the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County, told county commissioners on Tuesday that while it is encouraging to see the county’s COVID-19 positivity rate decrease over the past two weeks, “50% of new cases in the county are people ages 35 to 64.”
"The mortality is going down, but we don't know what the residual impact is going to be on people, whether the damage to their lungs is going to be long-term," Palm Beach County Vice Mayor Robert Weinroth said Tuesday.
- Per the report, “Reopen South Florida wants Gov. Ron DeSantis to take control of the situation and block county commissioners on any more extensions.”
