The woman who exercised her right to protest against the government was arrested by New Jersey Democrats for daring to question the governor’s coronavirus lockdown orders.
Tell me again… is this America we are living in, or not?
Kim Pagan, from Toms River, New Jersey, organized the anti-lockdown protest outside the Jersey state house on Trenton last Friday. But Democrat Gov. Murphy apparently does not believe the woman has a right to question his autocratic orders to destroy millions of his citizen’s jobs.
Pagan organized a small protest of perhaps as many as 30 cars filled with people who drove to the capital and held signs outside their windows protesting the governor’s lockdown orders.
But during the demonstration — one where NO protesters gathered in groups outside their cars — the governor’s stormtroopers could be seen systematically writing down the license plates of every car involved in the protest.
After the protest, Jersey’s leftist Attorney General, Gurbir S. Grewal , jumped to Twitter to bray about how his orders were law despite that absurd old Constitution thing written by those racist, dead, white guys.
“If you think emergency orders are more like guidelines than actual rules, think again. Here’s the latest on our enforcement actions. I know social distancing isn’t exactly enjoyable, but now’s not the time for fun & games. Please stay home & stay safe.” The tweet said.

According to Law & Crime blog:
Pagan was charged by New Jersey State Police with violating Murphy’s Coronavirus-inspired emergency order “by organizing a prohibited event” near the statehouse and elsewhere in the capital city in which “protesters gathered” in order “to demonstrate against the Governor’s Executive Orders,” according to authorities.
“Our police officers are working bravely and tirelessly every day to protect us during this health crisis. Regrettably, they are being called upon far too often to deal with people violating the emergency orders— or what is more egregious, people using the virus to spread fear or impede officers in their vital work,” Grewal said in the press release. “Staying home and maintaining social distance isn’t just the best advice to stay healthy, it’s the law. Make no mistake, we will do everything in our power to keep our residents and officers safe, and that means we won’t hesitate to file charges against violators.”
Who needs those silly constitutional rights, huh?
