Dallas area salon owner Shelley Luther became famous by breaking Texas’s shelter order in late April.
Like many small business owners, she had to make ends meet and could not afford the luxury of a prolonged shutdown.
She would then receive a citation from the city of Dallas. Her case gained widespread coverage and she would later be invited to a rally protesting the closures.
At the rally, Luther expressed her desire to keep her business afloat and also wants the rest of the Texas economy to continue running. She said before the crowd, “We have a right to run a business and feed our children.”
Luther then took out her citation and ripped it up in front of the crowd, which drew massive cheers from the crowd.
“You’re our Rosa Parks,” a woman yelled from the crowd as Shelley Luther took the stage.

On May 5, 2020, Luther received a 7-day jail sentence and was fined $7,000. The salon owner refused to apologize to the judge for her decision to open the business.
Essentially, local busybodies want to castigate Shelley for the grievous crime of trying to sustain herself and family.
On the night of May 5,a GoFundMe page was set up to raise money for Shelley Luther and her business.
As of May 6, over $260,000 has been raised for Luther and her family.
The woman given a jail sentence for bravely refusing to close her small business has raised $80,000 from supporters.
I think governors are losing control of the narrative.

However, the government has been lackluster in its efforts to re-open the economy.
Governor Greg Abbott must take action, lest he wants people like Luther to continue to economically suffer.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
