GOP State Rep Uses Chainsaw To Destroy Mask Because Mask Refusers Are Totally Like “Jews In Nazi Germany”

The Monroe News-Star reports:

A Louisiana lawmaker said people who refuse to wear masks during the coronavirus pandemic are being treated like Jews in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

State Rep. Danny McCormick, R-Oil City, posted a Facebook video Tuesday railing against mask mandates as an assault on liberty. It was triggered by a mask mandate issued by Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins.

In the video McCormick shreds a surgical mask with a chainsaw, saying the “Constitution is being shredded before our very eyes.” On Wednesday Gov. John Bel Edwards called McCormick’s analogy “nonsense and sad.” McCormick said his constituents are praising his post.

“Government needed a villain,” McCormick said in the video. “People who don’t wear masks will be soon painted as the enemy just as they did to Jews in Nazi Germany. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late. We can preserve America.”

“Your body is your private property,” he said in the video. “If the government has the power to force you to wear a mask they can force you to stick a needle in your arm against your will. They can put a microchip in you. They can even make you take the mark. After all, it’s for the greater good.”
