I will preface what I am about to say with I do NOT disagree with the fact that we need to take steps to get things open again. Only I don’t really know what that looks like because there are some businesses that are going to be harder than others to re-open because of the proximity employees have to customers like with restaurants, bars, hair salons and barbershops.
But the photo you see above taken today in West Chester downtown at the old courthouse is not how to do it.
I think these people are freaking idiots, truthfully.
They aren’t wearing masks they aren’t even social distancing. They are just waving “open” flags. These are the kind of people who are going to keep us closed longer because these are the kind of people who are going to catch COVID-19 or coronavirus by their behavior and spread it.
Do these people think they are actually going to sway elected officials with this protest today? They aren’t. But if any of them pop up with the virus we’re going to be closed longer.
It’s an actual global pandemic. It’s not some political tool to control us. I think this is ridiculous.
Sign me irritated by stupidity.
