The great debate that Americans are facing today is one of safety versus prosperity, and there seems to be as many different opinions on the subject as there are families in our country. Some believe that the entire coronavirus threat was overblown and that we could have achieved “herd immunity” much sooner had we not locked down a vast majority of the nation. Others are still completely convinced that, should we loosen our lockdowns, there will be hell to pay in the form of a viral resurgence.
For those who wish to get the American economic machine back up and running, a national day of protest has been established: MAGA May Day.
“MAGA May Day” freedom rallies are slated to pop up across America Friday, May 1, aimed to send a message to “local and state government tyrants” that it is time to safely and responsibly reopen the country.
The “drive-in” rallies for freedom encourage participants to head to their state capitol or local government building to protest the nationwide lockdowns and demand independence from China, not allowing the country to “control trade, supply chains, or anything else that affects the daily life, health, happiness of American citizens.”
The widespread event had undertones of revolutionary independence.
A schedule shows events slated to pop up in Honolulu, Hawaii; Phoenix, Arizona; Northampton, Massachusetts; Los Angeles, California; Huntington Beach, California; San Diego, California; San Francisco, California; Ventura, California; Louisville, Kentucky; Salem, Oregon; Chicago, Illinois; Springfield, Illinois; Atlanta, Georgia; Morehead City, North Carolina; Smithfield, North Carolina; Brookfield, Wisconsin; Carson City, Nevada; Boise, Idaho; and Limerick, Pennsylvania.
“It shouldn’t need to be said that the US Constitution will not be infringed upon, but it is under attack by local and state government tyrants across the country,” the event’s page reads
Event organizers insisted that they aren’t conspiracy theorists, no do they believe that the COVID-19 pandemic is “a hoax”.
“This virus is not a hoax. It is very real and we must protect the most vulnerable…health care workers, the elderly, those who are immuno-compromised, and others,” organizers said.
“However, America cannot destroy the lives and dreams of the majority to protect a few. The cure cannot be more dangerous than the disease,” they continued.
“We risk losing who we are as a nation by completely shutting down the country and the economy. Americans are strong, resilient, and independent!” they added.
The planned protests coincide with the reopening of several American states induing Georgia and Texas.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
