Authoritarian Democrats uniformly moved to impose severe restrictions on family gatherings during Thanksgiving.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown leads the worst with decrees harsher than that of Andrew Cuomo and Gretchen Whitmer. Brown even threatened to send authorities into the homes to arrest violators of the mandates.
The Oregon governor might have realized the lack of resources due to the move of defunding the police. She now calls for the Oregonians to snitch on their neighbors.
According to KGW-8 News, a Portland NBC affiliate, Brown believed residents whose neighbors violate the latest COVID-19 restrictions should call the police.
In a Friday interview, Brown said, “This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street, and it’s keeping everyone awake.” The governor actually compared the restrictions to a noise ordinance.
Brown implemented the restrictions, also called freeze, this week thru an executive order. For the next two weeks in Oregon, and succeeding four weeks in Multnomah County, residents were expected not to eat out at restaurants and attend gyms.
Further, social gatherings at home are also limited to six people with a fine of $1,250, up to 30 days in jail, or both.
The Oregonian also reported that Brown warned violations are punishable by citation or arrest. The governor said she would work with the authorities and law enforcement officers to encourage them to comply with her directive.
The governor claimed, “For the last eight months, I have been asking Oregonians to follow the letter and the spirit of the law, and we have not chosen to engage law enforcement.”
However, she said that “At this point in time, unfortunately, we have no other option.”
Emergency authority was apparently granted to the governor’s office by Oregon law.
Yet, how twisted could the state be?
The same Oregon police who were ordered to let Antifa anarchists assault the federal courthouse and beat people were the same police who were instructed to kick down doors and raid homes if owners defy the governor by celebrating Thanksgiving with extended families.
Don’t families matter more?
