Oregon’s autocratic, left-wing Governor, Kate Brown, is demanding that citizens snitch on neighbors who they think may be violating her draconian coronavirus lockdown orders.
Brown thinks she has the legal standing to tell people they are only allowed to have six people visiting their homes for the holidays and she wants violators to be reported to her coronavirus Brown Shirts.
The gov. made her demands in an interview with KGW-TV where she insisted that the snitching should begin as soon as possible.
“Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy,” Brown told KGW. “This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”
You know…. except that a local ordinance is an actual law while her lockdown nonsense… isn’t.
Despite the facts of U.S. law, Brown imagines in her jackbooted, black heart that she does have such power and she has floated an “executive order” that supposedly levies misdemeanor penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines of up to $1,250, or both, for violating her decrees.
Despite this little dictator’s proclamations, though, it appears that few are giving her any mind. Worse for her, no policing agencies said they would enforce her wild-eyed dictates.
Naturally, this diminutive fascist is still wagging her finger in the face of every Oregon voter.
Brown insisted that snitching on neighbors is needed but shouldn’t be necessary.
“But honestly, they shouldn’t have to,” said Brown. “This is about saving lives and it’s about protecting our fellow Oregonians. It’s about protecting our families, it’s about protecting our vulnerable community members and frankly it’s about protecting the entire state of Oregon.”
