Video of the Day: Fed-Up California Businessman Warns County Commissioners of Unrest Over Lockdowns, Covid Orders

It seems that a growing number of Americans are getting fed up with the ongoing lockdowns and edicts regarding masks and businesses staying closed.

Carlos Zapata, a veteran and business owner living in Shasta County, California, confronted the local board of supervisors and warned that a revolution is brewing in the county as people are tired of being hungry and out of work.

“At first we sat as concerned citizens….as we realized that [Covid] is not as quite as dangerous as we thought it would be, I was absolutely appalled at the cowardice — and you guys are sitting here with your masks on — I don’t blame you for wearing masks because I would be hiding my face if I was you for what you’re doing,” he said.

“I’m a business owner and I’m telling you, our families are starving — you guys can sit here with your jobs — you’re gonna sit here and get paid to fall asleep in your chair like that gentleman’s doing behind his mask right there,” he added.

“Right now we’re being peaceful and you better be happy we’re good citizens, that we’re peaceful citizens but it’s not gonna be peaceful much longer — and this isn’t a threat — I’m not a criminal, I’ve never been a criminal but I’m telling you real good citizens are going to turn into real concerned and revolutionary citizens real soon. And nobody else is gonna say that. I’m probably the only person that has the balls to say what I’m saying right now,” he told the local officials.

“We’re building and we’re organizing and we’ll work with law enforcement or without law enforcement but you won’t stop us when the time comes because our families are starving!” Zapata said.

“This is a warning for what’s coming because it’s not going to be peaceful for much longer! It’s gonna get real,” he added.
