There's usually a larger turnout for the farmer's market.

About half of that "crowd" are police and media.

It's the same 200 or so people. Bankrolled by De Vos and like minded patriots, they've been moving from site to site since Charlottsville.

In Cali, >70% of polled registered voters is in agreement with the governor's recommendations to phase in the re-opening of businesses. That percentage doesn't even show up to vote regularly!

Newsom benefits from that, with 70% of California voters approving of how he’s doing his job, the poll finds. The governor’s high standing and the priority voters put on keeping restrictions in place to protect health could give him considerable leeway to take controversial decisions, such as his order Thursday to keep Orange County beaches closed.

Still, the fringe nut-cases and Covidiots brandishing flags and their redhats get front page treatment. They should not be eligible for any treatment when their ill-advised "protests" results in illness due to the virus…

My visceral reaction is agreement with this. Medical personnel are physically and emotionally paying a very high price (e.g., dying) for helping people deal with Covid. They are pleading for people to not do exactly what these people are doing. People who are doing these protests should be willing to put their health on the line for their beliefs. They get Covid, too bad for them - that's my visceral reaction. Fortunately for them, the Hippocratic Oath doesn't have an exception for gross stupidity.

It succeeds because we've become a country that hides the bodies. The coffins helped to end the escalation of the Vietnam War.

Unfortunately, many are practicing social distancing.

I would estimate 1,000.

This is the issue. Once again, the media is playing this up to be bigger than it actually is, they are not addressing the issue that this is being staged by certain right-wing groups, they are not addressing the fact that polling is supporting the stay at home orders in the states. Michigan also has high support for Gov. Whitmer's stay at home orders. Look at what else the media is now covering... the reopening of states. They are showing videos that are normalizing these re-openings, which will do nothing more than slowly erode support for stay at home in other parts of the country.

Yes, getting sick and dying is too abstract of an idea for these fox news viewers. They are more worried about buying meat and getting a haircut than whether their family is safe.

These people waste our time and soak up the resources that we need to finally create solutions to long time problems.
