“If it were up to me, anybody not wearing a mask when they are out in public would be arrested”

As 4 million LA residents were ordered to stay indoors Wednesday night, the mayor of one Los Angeles county sparked backlash this week for declaring that anyone who does not wear a face mask is committing an “act of domestic terrorism.”
“If it were up to me, anybody not wearing a mask when they are out in public would be arrested … That’s an act of domestic terrorism and should be treated like one,” Lancaster, California, Mayor Rex Parris, said recently, according to the LA Daily News.
Imagine a world where you are pounced on by cops and dragged off to jail, then charged with terrorism, all for just breathing.
And why is it always the most “liberal” leaders that are the first to flip and start with the most draconian rhetoric?
By Mayor Parris’ reckoning, the governor of the state is also a domestic terrorist.
Several studies have shown that masks have not been proven to mitigate the spread of the virus.
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti banned all travel effective immediately Wednesday night, including walking, and has closed non-essential businesses.
Garcetti even threatened to arrest anyone breaking the new restrictions, saying “My message couldn’t be simpler: It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. And if it isn’t essential, don’t do it.”
Los Angeles county also recently announced a three week lockdown after a surge in positive cases of coronavirus.
“The temporary order will be in place for three weeks through Dec. 20 and will allow essential and emergency workers, and those securing or providing essential and permitted services, to leave their homes,” KTLA reported.
