Boise, Idaho: A #BURNTHEMASK Rally was held today on the steps of the Idaho Capitol, in protests against the mandation of mask wearing. According to the CDC, masks are but a small measure taken to limit the infection and spread or the Coronavirus. However, some political groups say that masks mandates are a restriction to their freedoms.
Today’s #FREEIDAHO gathering comes after Republican lawmakers in the Idaho House of Representatives passed legislation that would make future mask mandates illegal. It seems that the parents are teaching their children about their rights, as families could be seen throwing their masks into fire-filled bins, yelling “We don’t want them anymore!” This is not the first mask burning rally, and seemingly, will not be the last. It was reported that other states maybe interested in taking the same route.
Weigh in with your opinions #teaparty!
