It’s appalling how many Americans are only too eager to surrender their liberties to Democrat tyrants in the name of ‘staying safe from COVID.’
Appalling, but not altogether unexpected in this day and age, when more and more of our people have been indoctrinated into believing they serve those leaders and not the other way around.
That said, a growing number of Americans have had enough of perpetual lockdowns and gathering restrictions under orders from buffoons and hypocrites like California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who violates his own rules when he damn well feels like it.
Also, a growing number of law enforcement leaders are tiring of the tyranny as well. And they’re pushing back.
Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said Saturday that his deputies would not be enforcing the regional stay-at-home order that has been issued for Southern California.
It is not the first time the sheriff has declared deputies would not enforce a state order over coronavirus restrictions. When Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered a curfew in November for all California counties in the purple tier amid climbing coronavirus cases, Barnes said deputies would not be enforcing that order either.
“Compliance with health orders is a matter of personal responsibility and not a matter of law enforcement,” Barnes said in a statement. “The Orange County Sheriff’s Department will remain consistent in our approach.
“Orange County Sheriff’s deputies will not be dispatched to, or respond to, calls for service to enforce compliance with face coverings, social gatherings, or stay-at-home orders only.”
He also took a swipe at criminal Democrats.
'To put the onus on law enforcement to enforce these orders against law-abiding citizens who are already struggling through difficult circumstances, while at the same time criticizing law enforcement and taking away our tools to do our jobs is both contradictory and disingenuous,” he said.
Here is his full statement:

Barnes’ response comes after a similar refusal by Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco.
In a scorching video posted to YouTube on Friday, he noted: 'The dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open, and sending his kids to in-person private schools is very telling about his attitude toward California residents, his feelings about the virus, and it is extremely hypocritical.'
