Land of the free, because of the brave!  This US Army veteran probably figured his service to the United States of America would prevent something like New York mayor Bill de Blasio’s tyrannical “Key to NYC” program, which imposed a vaccination mandate for workers and customers at indoor dining, fitness, entertainment, and performance venues from ever being put in place in America.  Anyone who wishes to enter a public place must first be required to give that place must be willing to share their personal medical records by providing proof that they had taken a covid-19 vaccination.

It is important to note that the vaccination mandate and passport protester was NOT protesting when he was arrested inside a Brooklyn Panera Bread restaurant.  The man said the arrest occurred after being refused service for not showing his vaccination status. He ordered food and, even though he paid, did not receive his food as the restaurant refused him service.

The video tweeted below sadly shows NYPD officers carrying out de Blasio’s tyrannical orders. One officer even takes it a step further, as she appears to purposefully step on the US flag after ripping it from the vax mandate protester and then throwing the flag on the ground.

In the video below, you can hear the man holler out to the officers while other protesters attempt to secure his American flag.

“You don’t deserve to touch that flag, sir,” the man, whose name was not released, hollered at an officer.


“The flag does not touch the ground!”

Police told the New York Post that a 42-year-old man and other members of a “disorderly group” refused to leave the Panera at the Gateway Center Mall just after 3 p.m. despite “multiple requests.”

The paper — citing photographer Leeroy Johnson, who tweeted a video of the incident — said protesters entered five Panera restaurants in New York City on Sunday in defiance of the city’s mandate to show proof of vaccination before dining in.

Johnson’s video shows officers surrounding the man in question and struggling with other protesters trying to hold on to an American flag.

As cops cuffed him, he declared that “The Constitution of the United States is being violated.”

“I cannot eat, and my sisters and brothers cannot work,” he began before he stopped and told the cops he wasn’t resisting arrest.

“I’m complying 100 percent,” he insisted. “No weapons, no brass, no ammo.”

After being advised that he was trespassing, the man was “taken into custody without further incident,” cops said.

Once he was walked out, officers could be heard directing people to “protest outside.”

This is the very same Army veteran that has been arrested a total of 5 times, as you may have seen in other New York social media posts.

We’ve been told we are just following the “science”!  Well, here’s a little science that de Blasio and a few others may need to look into.

Günter Kampf, a prolific researcher at the University of Griefswald in Germany, wrote in a recent letter published in The Lancet:

Vaccinated people have a lower risk of severe disease but are still a relevant part of the pandemic. Therefore, it is wrong and dangerous to speak of a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Historically, both the USA and Germany have engendered negative experiences by stigmatizing parts of the population for their skin color or religion. I call on high-level officials and scientists to stop the inappropriate stigmatization of unvaccinated people, who include our patients, colleagues, and other fellow citizens, and to put extra effort into bringing society together.

This US Army veteran, along with countless others in our military, have been led to believe their service protects American’s freedoms.  When did this freedom have terms and conditions placed upon it?  Where does this madness stop?
