Thousands of residents in California have taken to the streets to protest Gov. Gavin Newsom’s draconian curfew order forcing people to stay at home after 10 p.m.
Thousands of patriots across 16 California cities, many of whom were carrying Trump flags and “Open up California” banners, gathered on the streets at 10:01 p.m. to collectively raise their middle finger to Newsom.
“Governor Newsom’s sweeping edicts by moving 95 percent of California to purple tier and a curfew is an abuse of power,” Syndie Ly, who helped organize the protest, told reporters.
“We are all responsible adults so we can make our individual choices.”
“This is tyrannical and government overreach on behalf of Gavin Newsom and other Democrat governors. The American people, as well as citizens of other countries need to stand up against this,” Nancy Vu-Kerr, who took part in a Huntington Beach protest, also said. “Our freedoms are truly at risk and all we need to do is look at the history of my mother country of Vietnam, and other countries of Venezuela, Cuba, Iran and others.”
“This movement is about us rising up for our freedom and against Governor Newsom’s overreaching edicts,” Ly said.
Breitbart.com reports: Russ Taylor, who also helped organize the protests, told Breitbart News the bottom line is freedom.
“We, as citizens, should be responsible, but we shouldn’t be so fearful that we live in a bubble and lose our personal liberties,” Taylor said.
Rick Brown, who just finished running the successful campaign of Tito Ortiz for Huntington Beach City Council, told Breitbart News that people are fed up.
“The event last night was over 1,000 patriots pushing back against the undeclared “martial law” coming from Gavin Newsom, who had the audacity to declare all Californians be indoors by 10 p.m,” Brown said, “Well guess what? We will NOT play in his sandbox anymore.”
“Curfew Crashers” protests were planned in San Clemente, Yorba Linda, Huntington Beach, Riverside, Temecula, Brentwood, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Patterson, Redlands, Sacramento, San Diego, La Quinta, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, according to organizers.
“If you are a free American join us for a clear act of defiance against Newsom’s 10 p.m. stay at home order, “ the flyers for each protest said.
The flyers said some of the protests will include a “mask defiance ceremony” and in Santa Barbara a “mask burning” was planned.
As Breitbart News reported, every county sheriff in the Los Angeles region has said they will not enforce the curfew.
