BOOM! NY Health Officials Try To Shut Down COVID Protest But Gets A Healthy Dose Of The Constitution

Americans are fed up!

They are tired of watching Democrat politicians live by their own rules as they impose draconian orders on their constituents.

In Erie County, New York the owner of Athletes Unleashed gym, Robby Dinero, hosted a protest with other small business owners that have been shut down due to the Thanksgiving coronavirus restrictions.

About 20 minutes into the gathering an Erie County health inspector showed up with three sheriffs and attempted to shut down the protest.

Dinero argued with the health inspector who told them the gathering was in violation of coronavirus restrictions. After a brief back and forth Dinero told the health inspector that she is on private property and that she needs to get a warrant. Dinero then told the Sheriffs that accompanied the health inspector that they would like the official trespassed and if she wishes to return she’ll need a warrant.

The officer then told the health official that under the law she needs to leave and was escorted out.

You can hear how local officials warp the law, at one point during the argument the health inspector claimed municipal health codes are greater than the constitution.

“I called this meeting together so we could protest the closing of small businesses, the handpicking of winners and losers,” Dinero said.

What frustrates Dinero is that local officials didn’t stop celebrations of Biden’s “victory,” gyms and salons are shut down however, shopping malls will remain open.

“I called this meeting together so we could protest the closing of small businesses, the handpicking of winners and losers,” Dinero said.

As a protest, Dinero said, the gathering was protected by law.

Dinero pointed out that authorities didn’t try to stop Black Lives Matter protests over the summer or celebrations of Joe Biden’s victory after the election. “It was no problem for people to come out then,” he said.

Tim Walton, a Buffalo bartender and event promoter who was at the gym Friday night, posted a video on his blog of the interaction. By 8 a.m., the blog post had been visited more than 18,000 times and he had received inquiries about the incident from national media.

Walton said the people at the gym Friday night aren’t denying the existence of Covid-19.

“Nobody is sitting around saying this isn’t real,” said Walton.

He said the group is frustrated by what they believe is the arbitrariness of who gets shut down.

Gyms were allowed to open before movie theaters, he said. But now gyms have to close again and movie theaters can remain open.

Meanwhile, malls can be open, even for Black Friday. “It’s the busiest shopping day of the year but a hair salon with two people in it can’t be open?” Walton questioned. “There’s just so much that doesn’t make sense.”
