Fox News host Jesse Watters warned governors around the United States to ease the indefinite lockdowns because Americans have reached a “boiling point” with these draconian house arrests.
“Governors better start lifting these lockdowns,” Watters said. “People aren’t going to take it anymore. There’s a rebellion brewing. Remember how the Tea Party got started? The battle cry over the bailouts? Rick Santelli [yelling] from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange? The same energy’s out there today.”
He continued: “We flattened the curve. The deadliest day in America was over three weeks ago. There are hospital beds galore. We have a billion masks. More ventilators than we know what to do with. We’re sending them to India. The plan was to lock it down and buy time. Well, we bought the time. And it cost us everything.”
“And now they are saying nope, time is not up yet. Yeah, it is. You can’t force us to commit economic suicide. We sacrificed everything to protect the sick and elderly, but now we can’t protect ourselves? Americans are getting angry.”

Jesse Watters underscored that “the $1,200 [coronavirus relief check] isn’t going to cut it. That was supposed to last a month, which it wouldn’t anyway. Now we’re two months in, and governors are tacking on another month, including states that already flattened the curve.”
He continued: “And if you try to survive, the government squeezes the life out of you. Politicians are telling people to snitch on small businesses just for opening up.”
“The L.A. Mayor is threatening to shut off the power and water to small businesses that open up.
Women are getting arrested for cutting hair. People are getting pulled over, fined for going to church. For being on a beach or a playground.
Politicians are ordering police to do this. Seattle police officer Greg Anderson has a message for those officers.”
Watters pointed out that the government gets its power from the people, relying on the “consent of the governed,” as stated in the Declaration of Independence. But no American consented to be locked down indefinitely and deprived of their right to work or walk on the beach.
“Our government rests on this principle: The consent of the governed,” Watters underscored. “That’s where our government gets its power. In March, we AGREED to lock down. We didn’t obey an order. We’re not peasants. The government can’t lock us down day after day after day. We don’t consent.”
Jesse continued: “You can’t trample our rights with no end in sight. We have rights that we get from above. And when the government destroys these rights, we have the right to change that government or abolish it. That’s in the Declaration of Independence.”
The coronavirus is undoubtedly a serious health crisis. But the panic-pimping media are overhyping it to terrify Americans.
Why? Because scared people are easier to control and brainwash. This is especially important with the November election around the corner.

“The press loves the lockdowns,” Jesse Watters said. “They attack protesters. They attack states that open. When a brave business — the UFC and their partner — endeavors to put on a fight the other day with testing with sanitizing and no crowd, the “New York Times” writes a hit piece. And the story was filled with fake news — all negative. ”
Watters remarked: “The country hates the media. Because the media hates the country. We want people to keep their hands to themselves. Stay clean. Stay safe. Do the distance thing, if you can, and be polite, of course, because that makes your mom happy. But most of the country has had it. The media can’t see this because they don’t want to. The government better take a close look at what’s going on.”
