Owosso, Mich. barber Karl Manke refuses to bow to the state, and he is operating his barber shop in direct contradiction to a court order mandating that he shut down.
Manke was still open for business on Tuesday, despite the fact that goons from Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office showed up at his barber shop the day prior to tell him he was violating the order.
“Both you guys look like you need a haircut,” Manke said he told the agents from the attorney general’s office.
While Manke was discussing his visit with Nessel’s goons, an individual in the barber shop suggested that he should offer to cut Nessel’s hair. Manke then mentioned that some of his supporters were sending letters with their own hair in it to show their dismay with Nessel and her boss Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
“I don’t know how many of my clients have loaded up hair and sent it to the governor,” Manke said.
Shiawassee County Circuit Judge Matthew Stewart issued an order on Friday, which stated that Manke’s barber shop “shall be locked and closed.” His attorney, David Kallman, has requested that the state Supreme Court intervene on behalf of his client.
The Safe Salons for Michigan coalition claims that this is the only state in which salons remain completely closed, as Whitmer arbitrarily punishes barbers and hair stylists out of spite.
“It’s a bunch of crap. Really, it is,” Manke stated about Whitmer’s edicts, which he maintains are unconstitutional.
“Like all governments, they’ll do something knowing that it’s probably illegal but if they tie it up in the court system, then they can drag it on and do what they want to do,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on Manke’s stand, which has galvanized barbers from across the state to flout Whitmer’s senseless restrictions:
The Michigan State Police (MSP) issued $500 fines for “disorderly” behavior to barbers who participated in Operation Haircut, a rally against arbitrary quarantine edicts issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
One of the barbers targeted by police is Sarah Huff, the 29-year-old owner of the Ardor + Grit salon in Holland, Mich. She received a citation for being a “disorderly person” for cutting hair outside of the Capitol on Wednesday.
Huff is following in the footsteps of heroic barber Karl Manke and opening up her salon without permission from the state.
“My next step is opening up my Salon. I did open up last Friday. I took a couple days to think about what I was going to do and try to rebuild my confidence and get back to work. So I am going to back to work on Friday, and then I will stay open,” she said.
Thus far, Huff has received no flak from the city of Holland or the state of Michigan for opening her salon against Whitmer’s orders. She does anticipate that some sanctions will come eventually, but she is not deterred from making her stand despite the push back against her.
“I would 100 percent do it again,” Huff said.
Civil disobedience is rising against lockdown tyranny, as they have shown the proper way to push back against tyranny. The looting and rioting savages in the street demanding handouts, on the other hand, are disgracing America and all the nation stands for.
Fact Check: Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order DOES NOT Mandate Wearing Face Masks
Abbott is trying to dupe his constituents.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) has cowered under the pressure and announced an executive order on Thursday that he claims will force everyone in his state to wear a mask to supposedly stop COVID-19 from spreading.
“COVID-19 is not going away, in fact it’s getting worse. Now more than ever, action by everyone is needed until treatments are available for COVID-19,” Abbott said in a video released over social media. “We must do more to slow the spread without locking Texas back down.”
However, public policy analyst Daniel McAdams has found that Abbott is not being forthright about his executive order. Upon closely analyzing the text, McAdams discovered that there is nothing in the order that actually mandates Texans to wear masks in public.
The order reads in part: “Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household; provided, however, that this face-covering requirement does not apply to the following…”
McAdams notes that the order is written to be deliberately confusing and mislead Texans into believing they have to wear masks, but it actually does not create a mask mandate in most locations.
“That comma after the word “space” is essential. It establishes “outdoor public space” as a clause within the sentence, meaning both indoor AND outdoor are covered by the exception “wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing.” This is critically important, as it means even in stores or other indoor spaces masks are not required as long as it is possible to “social distance.” That would include every grocery store and reasonably-sized commercial establishment,” McAdams wrote in a blog for the Ron Paul Institute.
McAdams blasts Abbott for cravenly wording his order “in such a purposely weasel-like manner that it will be universally accepted and reported as such.”
“Many honest Texas officials saw the “second wave” spike coming because they saw how the game was being rigged. But Abbott fell for it and he has declared war on Texans and on liberty,” McAdams wrote.
“This is not rocket science. Politics is at play in the “second wave” coronavirus in Texas and elected officials are either too dense or too corrupt to take a stand for truth,” he concluded.
While Abbott acts like a conservative champion, he has shown himself to be another sad sack oathbreaker under the pressure. He does not have the guts to stand against the media pressure to oppose the virus regime that is an existential threat to U.S. liberty. He will be remembered among the Benedict Arnolds of our age.
