GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): So today is December 16th, the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. In 1773, the Sons of Liberty, frustrated and angry at Britain for its over-taxation and flat out tyranny, planned what could be dubbed the greatest act of rebellion and defiance in American history. They stormed Griffen's Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts, and dumped 342 chests of tea - tea that was imported by the British East India Company. They dumped it straight into the Boston harbor. In that moment, on that day, Americans declared enough is enough. We will no longer take your tyranny.

Today across the country, there are small groups of people who plan on displaying their own act of defiance by burning their masks. We have seen mask burning protests pop up over the course of the past few months, and it reminded me of the Boston Tea Party as angry Americans, being oppressed by nonsensical lockdowns and mandates fuel their fire of rage with their masks.


STINCHFIELD: Well, when we talk about nonsense, look at Ohio. It has a 10 PM curfew in place. All bars and restaurants must shut down a 10 PM. Everything else must too, by the way. As if the Chinese virus somehow appears with ferocious force after 10 PM. This makes no sense.


STINCHFIELD: You see what I mean? COVID goes into hiding at 5 AM I guess. Exercising is okay. Eating apparently isn't. The insanity makes you want to pull your hair out. Look at New York now. It is shutting down again. The crushing lockdowns in that state are destroying businesses and families. But look a Texas and Florida. Two states that are open for business and have been for a while. Two states that have larger populations than New York and less deaths, according to the CDC. Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of the virus. Texas, the number stands around 24,000. And New York comes in at 35,000. And consider this: Texas of Florida have an average population of 25 million people, six million more than New York. To me, this is the very simple proof that the left's lockdown science just isn't there and yet liberal New York out of either fear, or as I believe, a test of tyrannical control, if fully willing to wipe out everything hard-working Americans have worked for.


STINCHFIELD: So on this anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, I too shall burn my mask in defiance. I'll do it tonight. In my little chiminea out in back, alright? Because these silly rules have me angry like being forced to wear a mask when I walk through a restaurant, but not when I sit down at the table. As if COVID-19 floats in the air 5 feet above the ground, but not at 3 feet.

So here's my prediction. Those on& the left will not understand a word of what I have just pointed out. These liberal zombies are blinded by fear. And their fear is what forces compliance. It is what the British banked on in 1773. It's what the Sons of Liberty refused to succumb to when they started tossing tea into that harbor.
