A man has been charged with a terroristic threat after allegedly coughing on a grocery store employee while saying that he had the coronavirus over the weekend.
This individual reportedly committed this assault at a Wegman’s in New Jersey. 50-year-old George Falcone of Freehold, N.J. is the suspect. He is also being charged with obstructing administration of law or other governmental function and harassment following the incident.
The incident took place on Sunday after a Wegman’s employee allegedly requested for Falcone to stand further away from her while she was preparing food. This reportedly offended Falcone, who leaned into her and purposefully coughed while facetiously saying that he had coronavirus while laughing. He faces up to seven years in prison and a fine up to $26,000 for his alleged actions.
“These are extremely difficult times in which all of us are called upon to be considerate of each other — not to engage in intimidation and spread fear, as alleged in this case,” said far-left New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.
“We must do everything we can to deter this type of conduct and any similar conduct that harms others during this emergency,” he added.
Grewal, who opened the flood gates for illegal immigrants in his state, has used coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to crack down on supposed hate speech related to the origin of the virus.
Big League Politics has reported on Grewal’s proposed diversity gestapo:
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal issued a “guidance” on Thursday telling employers that they may be guilty of illegal discrimination if they allow workers to call the COVID-19 coronavirus “the Chinese virus.”
“Among the guidance’s keynotes are that employers may be in violation of the LAD’s prohibition on disability discrimination if they fire an employee for exhibiting possible COVID-19 symptoms,” Grewal explained in his press release.
He added: “The guidance also states that employers must take reasonable action to stop harassment of one employee by another employee if the employer knows or should have known about it: for example, if one employee has east-Asian heritage and a coworker repeatedly harasses her by claiming that Asian people caused COVID-19 or calling this ‘the Chinese virus.’”
Grewal claims that noting the virus originated from China is a violation of the New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD). During a time in which resources are being stretched in an unprecedented crisis, this is what Grewal is concerned about.
“COVID-19 is no excuse for racism, xenophobia, or hate,” Grewal said. “Discrimination and harassment in violation of New Jersey law remains illegal even if it occurs against the backdrop of a global pandemic. Now, more than ever, we should recognize that we’re all in this together. Words and actions that divide us won’t make any of us safer or stronger.”
He is urging citizens to snitch on their fellow man during the coronavirus crisis in case someone’s feelings get hurt.
When the coronavirus pandemic ends, it is not likely that Americans will regain the many liberties they have lost throughout the crisis.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
