A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown.
Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities.
“The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said.
“What you see on this list from the Department of Health is people’s businesses. You see a lot of people who are complaining about churches. And I just don’t think the government should be telling people whether or not they should be wearing a mask or not,” he added.
Knight does not plan to release the personal information of the snitches, but he wants potential snitches to know that mindlessly complying with government tyranny could have serious consequences.
“I hate that, that you have neighbors who are reporting neighbors. People who are reporting bodies of religion and churches. And I just I hate that and I think our Commonwealth is so much better than snitching on each other and creating a culture like that,” he said.
The COVID-19 pandemic is being used to normalize some of the worst Orwellian overreach imaginable:
The coronavirus pandemic is being used to escalate the push for Big Brother, and tech corporations are salivating at the opportunity to help enforce social distancing edicts with terrifying innovations.
The Intercept has reported on the push to slap FitBit-style bracelets onto people in order to track them and coerce their behavior. AiRISTA Flow, a tech firm based out of Maryland, is marketing bracelets that would beep whenever a person comes within six feet of another individual in the workplace.
“When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time,” the company wrote in a press release about their creepy and invasive device, “the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the AiRISTA Flow software system.”
The technology would also allow employers to track every violation of social distancing edicts committed by their workers. The workers could then be reprimanded, or even fired, based off of the information gathered by the device.
The Redpoint Positioning Corporation is developing similar technology to turn employers into quarantine enforcement brigades. They have announced that they are working on modifying “cutting-edge technology … already used by leading companies worldwide in third-party logistics, auto manufacturing, mine operation” to be used in the enforcement of social distancing edicts. They plan on tagging people and products in the workplace to allow employers to institute Draconian restrictions on the freedom of movement.
“If social distancing parameters, such as a 1- or 2-meter radius, are violated between workers, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard,” Redpoint wrote in their press release.
“If an infection does occur, historical data from the system will allow for highly accurate contact tracing, as records can show the individuals who were near the infected party,” they added.
Israeli surveillance firm SuperCom is repackaging services that are used on criminals to enforce home confinement on ordinary people in the workplace. They are calling their service “PureCare,” and it is described as a “state-of-the-art solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to aid government efforts in containing and limiting the reach of infectious diseases.” They claim it is “a non-intrusive patient friendly system that constantly tracks patient location within buildings, vehicles and outside.”
They noted in their press release that they have experienced a sharp increase in “government agencies looking to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among their general population” and anticipate “additional potential industry demand for electronic monitoring services coming from the incarcerated American population.”
Perhaps punishing snitches who comply with government tyranny could be a way to halt the seemingly inevitable rise of Big Brother.
Popular Donut Maker is Facing Huge Fines After Refusing to Follow Michigan Governor’s New Lockdown Edicts
Donutville USA is taking a stand.
A popular donut maker in Dearborn, Mich. is taking a stand against the COVID-19 lockdown insanity of Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The owners of Donutville USA are refusing to comply with Whitmer’s latest round of unconstitutional shutdown edicts. As a result, they face thousands of dollars in fines and are crowdfunding in the hopes of staying open in the face of adversity. They hope their courageous protest galvanizes the community before hundreds more small businesses are crippled by the Democrat regime.
Thus far, they have raised $3,228 on GoFundMe but hope to raise in excess of $10,000 anticipating the fines from the state as well as legal costs. They have acquired lawyer David Kallman of the Great Lakes Justice Center, who represented barber Karl Manke as he fought back successfully against Whitmer. The family-owned business released a statement on the GoFundMe platform expressing gratitude for the help from the community.
“Donutville USA and the Porada family are so appreciative of the outpouring of support that we have received. It has meant the world to us,” they wrote in an announcement.
“I will be honest, this has not been an easy ride. We never imagined that there would be so many hate-filled messages sent to our family, simply for wanting to defend ourselves over a fine, which we feel is a bit extreme. However, the positive messages and your generous donations and support have made things sting a little less. God willing, will continue to serve the Dearborn community and our loyal customers the best donuts and coffee that we always have,” they added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Whitmer has discarded the Michigan state constitution, brazenly flouting a state supreme court ruling in order to continue her illicit reign of terror across the state:
Even though a state supreme court ruling recently invalidated her emergency powers, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is refusing to give up her illicit control.
Whitmer is working through Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and having her bureaucratic henchmen do her dirty work as she attempts to sidestep the court ruling.
MDHHS Director Robert Gordon has issued a new emergency order mandating face masks in public, restricting bars and other venues, and limiting gathering sizes.
“A divided Michigan Supreme Court struck down these requirements on Friday. Our order today flows from a legal authority not at issue in Friday’s case. It is important we stay the course we’ve been on. When it comes to defeating COVID-19, we’re all in this together,” Gordon said in his announcement.
The Whitmer administration is continuing to repeat the same talking points that they have used throughout the pandemic to stupefy the masses into submission.
“When it comes to fighting COVID-19, we are all in this together. We need Michiganders everywhere to do their part by wearing masks and practicing safe physical distancing so we can keep our schools and small businesses open and protect the brave men and women serving on the front lines of this crisis,” Whitmer said.
“The epidemic order that Director Gordon issued today is an important step to protect Michiganders across the state from the spread of COVID-19. Let’s all mask up and stay safe,” she added.
They noted that noncompliance with these new orders will be considered a misdemeanor under Michigan state law, which could result in up to six months in jail. It could also result in a $200 fine as well as a civil fine of up to $1,000.
“Michigan was hit hard by COVID-19 early in the pandemic,” Gordon said. “Strict preventive measures and the cooperation of Michiganders drove those numbers down dramatically, greatly reducing the loss of life. As we head into flu season, this order is necessary to protect vulnerable individuals, ensure the health care system can provide care for all health issues, keep schools open, and maintain economic recovery.”
While the Whitmer administration likes to act like their emergency measures have saved lives, the opposite is actually the case. Whitmer is one of a handful of Democrat governors who mandated that COVID-19 patients be housed in nursing homes among the most vulnerable. Because of Whitmer’s decision, countless elderly people died painful deaths alone isolated from their loved ones that could have easily been prevented.
Patriotic activists in Michigan have discussed the possibility of a citizens’ arrest on Whitmer. While those sentiments may have seemed radical weeks ago, Whitmer’s recent behavior demonstrates without a shadow of a doubt that she is an unrelenting tyrant.
