    Orchard Park, N.Y. (WBEN) - It was an angry atmosphere inside the Athletes Unleashed gym in Orchard Park Friday night as a group of concerned business owners and citizens were gathering to discuss the current COVID restrictions on certain businesses.

    Tim Walton attended the meeting that began at around 7pm Friday and tells WBEN there were more than 100 people attending the meeting inside the gym.

    In a press release and blog post, Walton says the Erie County Sheriff's Department and Health Department entered the facility and confronted the gathering, telling them they were in violation of the limit to mass gatherings of no more than ten.

    With cell phone cameras trained on a health department representative, the angry crowd resisted the interference, demanded a warrant and began to chant "get out, get out". At one point during the video of the incident, the health department representative explains that the visit is not criminal in nature but rather a 'code enforcement' visit.

    After several minutes of back and forth between those gathered, the health department and sheriff's deputies left the gym and were followed to the parking lot by an angry crowd.

  • Good. Now everyone do the same.

    It is beginning in Europe as well... Northern Italy, UK, and France has been seeing overwhelming resistance to their new lockdowns, and people trying to enforce it have gotten the shit beaten out of them in the streets...

    Good for the business owners finally standing up to the Fascist oppressors who want to destroy all small businesses to enrich their corporate overlords.
    It's a great start, of course hopefully they have a plan and lots of friends for when the oppressors get butt hurt enough to show up with a whole bunch of "King's Men"......

    I was thinking this morning when filling up with petrol at COSTCO and I went in to get Krill Oil supplement. There is another run on TP for your bunghole...yes, they are threatening us. THIS latest run on everything IS 100% the fault of BIDEN and the COMMUNIST PARTY he represents. . The threat of total lock-down, even more stringent than the first, has once again freaked people out (rightfully so this time as they're starting to see...this is 100% bullshit).

    What I am curious to know, and so ban cat won't get me I'm not suggesting this, just asking. I applaud these people for non-violently standing up and telling them to leave. That was about as active as it can get without some kind of physical and even violent confrontation. However, eventually people will be threatened and arrested (possibly shot) and taken away. In that scenario are people going to actually fight back with something more substantial than words? The people calling for these lock-downs do not have We the People's best interest at heart - it's about control and power? It's very scary we're heading this direction and once again, if Trump doesn't miraculously pull this out....we're in for some UNIMAGINABLY DIFFICULT times.

    I just read an article saying the death rate is 0.2%...0.2 %!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sure, the first 3-5 months we were behind the curve. Operation Warp Speed has got us mostly in front. Ponder that America!!! https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/sensible-compassionate-anti-covid-strategy/

    I love how they used the "we are BLM" and "we will not comply" crap we have been hearing for 2 year right back on them. If we fight together they cannot win. Join the fight.

    Here too, but I have been kicked out of Cabela’s in Scarborough Maine (no big loss there really) and have been harassed at Home Deopt (buy a guy wearing one of those stupid grinding face shields), I constantly get really bad looks (I think because it’s hard to tell with those damn mask on) at the grocery store. Fuck people are spineless sheep...

    We received our edict from the King of Illinois yesterday on our cell phones.
    Just in time for TG.
    He can eat a dick.
    Be interesting to see who would like to enforce it.

    Still breathing fee air across the border in Iowa. Come for a visit if you can make it across the River before the IL state fascists erect the wall.

    This is how the citizens can win against these commies. This is fantastic.

    He's better protected than mask wearers...but it does look stupid.

    You are correct. A buddy of mine served in his platoon in combat. He texted me the link today while I was at work. (of course, don't believe strange people on the interwebz right?)
    I did a leadership and training class with the man. Seems like a hard charger and good man. Over 100 people turned out to that protest that he helped plan. Good shit.

    Also, if 'face coverings' work, why are we having a massive spike in cases all over the country? Not just in places where there's no mask mandate?
    Because its flu season


    You dont have to have a positive test to be "diagnosed" to have covid. Just certain symptoms......which funny enough are the same as the flu.

    My AO. Fairly positive that this business is owned by a Marine infantry officer.

    You guys might want to tell the owner to invest in generators and water supply. I'll bet they first go the passive aggressive route and take his business license away then shut off the power and water.

    When that doesn't work it when it might get spicy.

    We got to this place because the powers that be appealed to peoples emotions and offered free stuff. When you're left empty and find the 30 pieces of silver don't get you what you want its too late. A good way to combat this is appeal to people's emotions the same way they were lured into this trap. Start pointing out the fallacy of the lockdowns, loss of rights, loss of work, ect ect by appealing to what they feel first. Once you can get them to feel what is happening isn't right emotionally then start leading them down the logic path. You try logic first and you've lost before you begin.

    Doubt it. Likely a pretty stiff fine heading his way though.

    It appears that this was an "assembly" of concerned business owners. I think there is something about the "right to assemble" some where in the constitution. While I wouldn't put it past the NY state politicians to partake in malicious prosecution, I do think these people have a pretty strong argument for asking the government to leave.

    The pussy Erie County Executive Poloncarz sent the health department back down there to deliver a nice $15K fine. He told em to fuck off (in so many words), he's not paying it, tore it up (on camera for the local news), and will be re-opening his gym Monday morning. I'm interested to see how they handle this.
