State officials are flexing their muscle during the coronavirus pandemic and targeting Christian retail giant Hobby Lobby for staying open for business in spite of lockdown orders.

The Colorado Attorney General’s office has demanded that Hobby Lobby close all their stores throughout the state, claiming that the business is nonessential.

“For the avoidance of doubt, and as you have been previously notified, Hobby Lobby is not a ‘critical business,'” stated the letter from attorney general Phil Weiser’s office, according to ABC News. “You are directed to immediately close all Hobby Lobby locations within the State of Colorado.”

“Craft stores including Hobby Lobby are not considered essential businesses under the order,” a spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Public Health said to ABC on Wednesday. “Breaking the order is breaking the law.”

The Ohio Attorney General is targeting Hobby Lobby as well for their resistance of edicts meant to shut down storefronts capriciously throughout the state.

Hobby Lobby locations that remain operational maintain that they are “essential businesses” because they are “offering PPE masks, supplies, educational supplies, office supplies and various components for home small businesses.”

Hobby Lobby’s founder and CEO David Green has kept his Christian principles throughout the crisis and has not lost sight of what really matters amidst the coronavirus hysteria.

“While we do not know for certain what the future holds, or how long this disruption will last, we can all rest in knowing that God is in control,” Green wrote in a letter to his employees on March 19.

“To help ensure our Company remains strong and prepared to prosper once again when this passes, we may all have to ‘tighten our belts’ over the near future,” he added.

In addition, Green sent out memos to managers letting them know that the company intended to “continue to make every effort to work the employees” throughout the coronavirus pandemic. He also coached them on “how to respond and communicate if visited by a local authority that asks why we are open.”

Police have already physically shut down Hobby Lobby stores that have refused to comply with the state-level edicts.

“We made contact with the business around 11 a.m. and found that it was open,” West Allis Deputy Police Chief Christopher Botsch said about his agency’s forced closure of a Hobby Lobby store in Wisconsin.

“We took this as an opportunity to educate the business on the specifics of the governor’s order. The business was cooperative and closed without incident,” he added.

The coronavirus pandemic, used as an excuse to shut down the country and revoke the Bill of Rights by opportunistic government bureaucrats, may signal the death of the American Dream forever.

New York Young Republicans Threaten to Sue Gov. Andrew Cuomo Following Attacks Against 1st Amendment

They will not bow to Cuomo’s tyranny.

Published

The New York Young Republicans are under fire from the Democrat establishment for planning to hold an in-person event as Gov. Andrew Cuomo is instituting another business-crippling lockdown.

The group is not backing down under fire, as evidenced by a Twitter thread from the group’s president, Gavin Wax. Wax has said that his group will strike back in court if state thugs unduly restrict their 1st Amendment right to organize politically.

Additionally, Wax appeared on the “War Room” podcast to discuss the entire situation on Wednesday:

Big League Politics has covered the New York Young Republican club as they have stood boldly against Cuomo’s persecution of Jewish groups:

A controversial crack down by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio against Hasidic Jews was met with sharp criticism by Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Earlier this week, many Hasidic Jews took to the streets to protest Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new restrictions on schools, businesses, and places of worship in nine neighborhoods with rising Wuhan virus cases.

The New York Young Republican Club criticized the de Blasio government’s “radical and inconsistent enforcement actions” against Jewish worshippers practicing their faith during, Sukkot, an important Jewish holiday.

In a statement it released on October 8, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club asserted that “The rights of all Americans to assemble, whether in religious celebration or protest, cannot and should not be infringed and even in a global pandemic can be observed with the proper safeguards and health awareness.”

The Republican organization called attention to how New York City leadership has messed up political priorities by “allowing extremism from left to continue unabated and un-policed, from blocking streets and bridges to looting and rioting, while not hesitating to condemn and disturb the peaceful exercise of Jews’ religious rites.”

In addition, it argued that “arbitrary application of regulations and safeguards under the guise of public health and safety reeks of selective priority and in a time when so many have died, while some turn to government and progressivism as a religion for comfort, others turn to God and de Blasio should not stand in the way.”

More populist anger is rapidly building against Cuomo and other lockdown proponents who want to replace the Bill of Rights and Constitution with permanent technocracy.

The New York Young Republicans event is scheduled to take place at 6pm tonight in an undisclosed location. The guests of honor will be Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and journalist James O’Keefe.
