Author of The Blackout Book and the online course Bloom Where You’re Planted
Imagine you’re sitting around the table with your family, inhaling the aroma as grandpa begins to carve the turkey, and there’s a knock at the door.
Is it a late guest? A neighbor dropping by?
No, it’s a health official or the police there to quell your gathering because somebody snitched on you for making the decision to spend time with the people you love.
It certainly sounds dystopian, doesn’t it? Or like something from a country under enemy rule? But it is indeed the United States of America where government officials are urging people to rat out their neighbors for having more visitors on Thanksgiving than they see fit. Stay up to date with all the insanity by subscribing here.
We’ve already talked about the massive overreach of governments telling people how they are or are not allowed to celebrate Thanksgiving in their own homes. Now let’s take it up a notch while watching our neighbors get turned into Brownshirts for “the greater good.”
Lots of folks are willing to narc on their neighbors.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking your neighbors wouldn’t do such a thing. More than a third of the people who took part in a Rassmussen poll would rat out the folks next door in a heartbeat.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and this year promises to be an enjoyable and festive day of “narcing out” your beloved neighbors!
According to a 2020 survey by Rasmussen, 36% of American patriots would be willing to call the cops on their neighbors if they noticed an egregious violation of government-mandated social-distancing rules. (source)
Here are just a few examples from the headlines. This list is by no means comprehensive. Totalitarianism is spreading faster than the virus.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) wants to “save lives” by requesting gatherings be limited and relying on individuals to report non-compliance.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued a new emergency order today that enacts a three-week pause targeting indoor social gatherings and other group activities in an effort to curb rapidly rising COVID-19 infection rates.
Under this order, indoor residential gatherings are limited to two households at any one time. However, MDHHS strongly urges families to pick a single other household to interact with over the next three weeks, consistent with new guidance released by the department. The order is aimed at limiting residential and non-residential gatherings where COVID-19 spreads rapidly. (source)
People should create “social pods” (I swear I could not make this up) to determine with whom you can “safely” spend time.
If you disobey and are busted having more than two households together at a time, you could face misdemeanor charges, thousand dollar fines, or even imprisonment.
For violations, MDHHS set forth rules instituting a civil fine up to $1,000. Violations may also be treated as a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for up to six months. Michigan’s official website also provides information for individuals to report violators to the state.
“If MDHHS receives an allegation of a violation of the department’s order, the department will refer the matter to the local health department or law enforcement,” said Lynn Sutfin, spokeswoman for MDHHS, as reported by Michigan Capitol Confidential.
“The first remediation method is to discuss the situation with the person responsible for the violation and attempt to resolve the situation without issuing a citation,” Sutfin told Michigan Capitol Confidential. “The local health department or MDHHS — as a referral from the Michigan State Police — may issue an administrative citation for violating the department’s order. The department hopes that residents will do the right thing and follow these orders to save lives and protect their family, friends and community from further spread of COVID-19.” (source)
Albuquerque, New Mexico
The Albuquerque PD is spread thin but they’ll still dispatch officers if a large gathering is reported.
Because of COVID health concerns, the state public health order does not allow large gatherings. That includes Thanksgiving. KOAT asked how APD would handle it if someone called to report neighbors having a large gathering.
“It would ultimately be dispatched but it would be a lower priority than an emergency call with somebody being injured or a crime in progress,” said APD Deputy Chief Mike Smathers.
He says APD would make sure violators are aware of health concerns.
“To hopefully just educate people but if it came to it we would have to enforce the public health order,” Smathers said.
He said if people are warned but continue to disregard the health order, they could face a $100 fine. (source)
So remember, it’s cheaper to get busted in New Mexico than in Michigan.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said no more than ten guests can be present in a household but that enforcement is up to individual local authorities to enforce the mandate.
Niagara County Sheriff Michael Filicetti said he’s not going to send officers around to patrol for violators, but they’ll “investigate” reports.
Of course, as is the case with any law enforcement agency, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office would investigate a complaint if one were lodged and provided it had someone available to respond.
When asked what a deputy might do if someone called in on a neighbor and alleged they had more people in their home for dinner than Cuomo’s executive order would allow, Filicetti replied, “If we responded to that type of complaint, we can certainly advise a homeowner of what the new protocol is. But as far as taking enforcement action, I just don’t see that.”
Filicetti said none of his deputies will be directed to enter homes and count heads, or order anyone away from the Thanksgiving table.
Filicetti noted this is also in part because his department has yet to receive any enforcement guidelines from the state when it comes to gatherings in private homes. (source)
Don’t hold your breath on New York remaining mellow on enforcement – NYC wants to pay people to snitch on those who park illegally and Mayor de Blasio already tried to start a tip line for social distance violators, so it’s not a huge stretch of the imagination to believe they’d also welcome Thanksgiving snitching.
Governor Kate Brown of Oregon heartily encourages citizens to call the cops and rat out their neighbors who have more than 6 people gathered.
Days before Thanksgiving, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said she believes residents who know their neighbors are violating the most recent round of COVID-19 protocols, which includes capping the number of people allowed in your home at six, should call the police.
“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday. “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.” (source)
Oregonian violators could “face up to 30 days in jail, $1,250 in fines or both.”
The University of Chicago
Reporting your fellow humans has never been easier than it is at the University of Chicago, where they’ve got a handy-dandy form you can fill out and snitch anonymously.
Please make sure you call 123 (on-campus phone) or 773.702.8181 (off-campus phone) for accidents to ensure the appropriate emergency response personnel are notified.
Involved individuals, supervisors, affected persons, or witnesses can submit reports. Anonymous reporting is available for events that do not require medical treatment. For more information about UCAIR, visit the FAQs page.
Please use this form to report any concerns about COVID-19 related public health violations (including anonymously, if preferred), such as:
* Concerns about PPE usage
* Concerns about social distancing and density
* Concerns about cleaning and disinfection
* Concerns about individuals at work who should not be (please describe)
* Any other COVID-19 related public health concern
Just in case teaching university age kids to snitch isn’t indoctrinating our youth early enough, Vermont has upped the game. Vermont has prohibited all gatherings of more than one household and Governor Phil Scott is urging schools to interrogate the kiddos when they return to school after the holiday.
Unfortunately, we know some will still get together and schools have asked for help. @VTEducation will direct schools to ask students or parents if they were part of multi-family gatherings and if the answer is yes, they'll need to go remote for 14 days or 7 days and a test. 9/
— Governor Phil Scott (@GovPhilScott) November 24, 2020
According to Governor Scott there’s absolutely no excuse to have an in-person Thanksgiving this year.
We also advise businesses to consider asking employees to quarantine if they don't adhere to gathering restrictions. This isn't a way around the ban or an excuse to get together. The more we adhere to this policy, the faster we’ll lower case counts & ease up on restrictions. 10/
— Governor Phil Scott (@GovPhilScott) November 24, 2020
At least one person in Vermont is grateful for the Stasi…I mean Mao…I mean Gov. Scott…for getting children to snitch on their parents. She made her thoughts known with this fawning reply.
Thank you. Many people seem to feel like they are an exception. If they are asked directly and have to take responsibility, maybe it will help them do the right thing.

Officials hope people will tell the truth.
Vermont Education Secretary Dan French told the Burlington Free Press that state officials hope that families will be honest in answering their questions about Thanksgiving plans.
“Schools operate on trust with their parents and their students, and we’re hopeful this guidance will give them some additional tools to help everyone do the right thing and keep school safe,” French said.
The outlet noted that the rules against households interacting does not apply in the workplace, at retail stores, or in schools. (source)
With all the mistrust already brewing in our nation, this will be like throwing gasoline onto the fire.
Is there encouragement to snitch on the neighbors where you live? Would you ever report a neighbor for having a family gathering? Let’s talk about it in the comments.
Sounds like the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany.
Woe to the “snitchers” if their neighbors find out who snitched..
That is what I was thinking as I read it and of course the stassi from east Germany.
woe to these self righteous lunatics posing as “public servants”.
“Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell and George the Third may profit by their example. If this be treason, make the most of it!” — Patrick Henry
This is not the end…. we’ll probably end up on concentration camps!
In Canada they installed hydraulic guillotines at their covid quarantine camps.
Could you elaborate on this more? Where is this place? Would you have pics please?
Mette, stop drinking the kool-aid. There are no guillotines, hydraulic or otherwise. The “camps” you refer to are accomodations in hotels where you can go to quarantine. Some people who aren’t able to stay quarantined from family due to things like small or multi-generational homes are free to use the facilities if they wish.
When I caught covid earlier this year, I was able to stay at home. I slept in a different room from my husband. Luckily we have 2 bathrooms so I used one and he used the other. We also ate in different areas. It was awkward but we made it work. The kids were told to stay away and only call us to see how we were doing.
So, just being a little envious perhaps, but JUST HOW BIG IS YOUR HOUSE?
Because I was given to understand that this virus can be be airborne. Meaning that sleeping in separate rooms that share the same air, but somehow the air in your room stays there, and magically doesn’t move out to the next room, would be just another of those fairy tales told to us by our “betters”, so we all keep on believing them.
We live in a 1,300 square foot house. I managed to give my husband covid too. He had it to a lesser extent than i did. Seems that him taking fenofibrate actually helped reduce his infection. Guess I should have worn a mask indoors, but i just thought it was just some new strain of flu. Hubby was the one to clue into what it really was.
Hope that answers your question.
My sister works in a hospital and got COVID last July. She and my 77 year old mom live together. Mom just stayed in part of the house and everything was fine.
Hearing about that worried me somewhat until I looked at manufacturer websites and various other sources and the only hydraulic guillotines made are for cutting paper, making placards, business cards, things like that. That’s not to say that awful things might not be happening, but it’s not going to be that obvious or easy to find out about.
Hell fucking no I’d ever snitch on anyone for violating Snitchgiving Big Brother orders. I will proudly be violating CA BS Nazi Gov Gavin Newssolini’s Snitchgiving at my brother’s by not wearing a mask, no social distancing (CIA psy-op by the way), no staying exclusively outside, and by drinking & partying w/neighbors. I’m w/you Daisy I’m in complete shock & really can’t believe just how quickly we’re descending into some Orwellian Dystopia. Go and have a great Thanksgiving & visit whoever you like! Kerry Lutz said it best-This is the MOST important Thanksgiving to spend time w/loved ones. Shit who knows if enough of the country will be left intact a yr from now to have Thanksgiving. Shit it may be outright illegal by then!
Anthony Favalessa: I just about keeled over laughing when I read your nickname for Newsom (“Newssolini”)!!!!!! I live in Commiefornia, too, and I find him to be such a NWO lapdog. He smiles with glee at inflicting these draconian, cruel measures on the already mind-controlled zombies who believe everything and who spout lies without doing a bit of research or simply questioning what they are seeing. And what ARE they seeing? Only fake videos on the Tell-a-Vision and social [engineering] media, like huge COVID burial fields in NM and constant rising numbers of “cases.” OMG, if this wasn’t so damn tragic, I would be laughing all the time, like it’s the funniest zombie movie ever made! But I’m not laughing, because one of those zombies may be snitching on me and my husband when we have a big house party soon. I do not wear the Satanic ritual shaming muzzle, and never will. I don’t “stand on the band” (anger welling up) at Traitor Joe’s. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a strong protector male. Our world needs the other 3.75 billion men to grow some balls like yours, right now! Say “no” and with teeth, as Mark Passio says!????
You pointed out Albuquerque New Mexico. The lockdown there is not just the city, It is the entire state of New Mexico. I have family there and they report hour long lines to get into a grocery store. The maximum amount of people allowed in any retail establishment is 75. Costco & WalMart can hold over 4,000 shoppers. ALL restaurants & bars are closed. You will receive an “Amber Alert” on your cell phone if you are driving around instructing you to stay at home. There’s more. See for yourself, Google New Mexico Department of Health Covid restrictions.
Holy cow – you get an alert on your phone!?!?!?!?
July 3rd of 2020 we got an ominous warning on our phones that if we go out on the 4th of July, you must wear a mask and social distance. You may not be aware of this, but EVERY smartphone in the US has a Covid-19 contact tracing app quietly downloaded sometime last June. Allegedly, it doesn’t work unless you enable bluetooth on your phone–I’ve recently found that bluetooth “somehow” has been enabled on my Google Pixel more than once. Read about it here: https://onezero.medium.com/apple-and-googles-coronavirus-feature-might-be-an-offer-you-can-t-refuse-90c705541eaa
I keep mine off. Only turn it on to make a call, then right back off again.
Interesting stuff! I’d like to see them secretly download a contract tracing app on MY phone – it’s a flip phone with nothing but talk and text on it, all data services disabled, no data plan paid for. Sure it has a GPS tracker but those old phones are notoriously inaccurate. It can also still last a week on a battery charge and survive being dropped on the floor.
I just got a “smartphone” this August. My daughter insisted that my old flip phone would not work very soon. I really miss the flip phone. Just a simple way to contact in an emergency. Nothing else needed.
I’ve got an idea – why not just have the phone company turn your old flip phone on again? It shouldn’t cost a cent. Then put the “smartphone” away in a drawer somewhere for the day when the good old reliable flip phone doesn’t work. Unless your carrier is changing networks or something it should continue to work for a good long while.
We just received an emergency alert on our phones in PA yesterday too. Said the case numbers were rising and hospitals are at capacity.
I live about an hours drive from Albuquerque. Its draconian… we hate our Dem governor and I’m convinced she hates us all
First I want to emphasize that over 65 is NOT elderly, NOT medically elderly, NOT a risk group!!! What about someone who has no gray hair and a youthful face, hikes, exercises, lives a healthy lifestyle and looks 40? SHould they have to be considered at risk because of a damn number? Well hell no!!!!
MEDICALLY ELDERLY BEGINS AT 80
MEDICALLY ELDERLY BEGINS AT 80
At 80, SOME, certainly NOT ALL, people are unhealthy , frail, and ‘at risk’ of getting the cold. NOT ALL! PROBABLY NOT MOST!!!!! ONLY AN INDIVIDUAL HAS THE RIgHT TO LABEL THEmsELvS AT RIsk! NOBODY EVER EVER EVER EVER!!!!! has the right to ASSESS, LABElL, or DISCRIMINATE against someone based on age or “perceived age!” it is the HEIGHT OF EVIL
I’m only 75, have had some really bad medical problems but have always bounced back. I haven’t had a cold in two years, work in the oil&gas industry (construction). I don’t wear a mask except when it is required to get into a restaurant. I don’t quite understand that you could catch COVID going to a table but not leaving? I don’t think I am a risk , If I catch it, oh well. I travel all over the country, drove 1200 miles to get home for the holiday and will be going back to the job this weekend. I’m not changing my life because some bureaucrat idiot tells me to. I like the motto of New Hampshire “Live Free or Die”
Some in NH have changed the motto to “breathe free or die”! 😉
I live in New Hampshire and I like its motto too—but there are a lot of “snitches” out here who will ask if they should call the police even tho our Republican governor is NOT the most rigid lockdowner in the country. The sheeple want to take you down if you actually TRY to live free.
Well, you and I feel this way, but the powers that be don’t. I will continue to beieve myself NOT at risk though I will be 78 in March. Anyway, this is all just hooey to control the plebes.
For Thanksgiving Day this year Oregon Governor Kate Brown asks citizens to call the police on neighbors who may have more people in their home than the number allowed in her most recent lock-down restrictions.
Her actions are part of a historically verified communist coercive set of methods for eliciting Compliance1 the current version of the beast-system using COVID in their nationally (& internationally) coordinated Individual Compliance campaign through these state actions against individual citizens of the USA:
• isolation (deprive citizens of social support)
• monopolization of perception (dominate all media 24/7)
• induced debility and exhaustion (wear down by tension & fear)
• threats (threaten to close businesses, levy fines and jail time),
• occasional indulgences (follow concessions with tougher rules),
• demonstration of omnipotence (shut down entire economies world-wide) and
• enforce trivial commands (develop habits of compliance, family members must stand apart, random limits on group sizes).
So is now the time to toss the US Constitution into the dustbin of history in order to “save lives”? Actually, NOT.
These techniques are being implemented (globally) to develop deep-seated habits of universal compliance to coercive methods. What do you say about it?
“Would you ever report a neighbor for having a family gathering?”
Heck no, but I’d report snitchers for being accomplices to tyranny. If they lived under the Third Reich they’d have called their neighbors for harboring Jews.
Well, they say that’s how the Gestapo learned about Anne Frank’s family.
My mom exercised her rights as an American to go out to dinner and gather with friends and thought the government should just “let people decide for themselves” Now she is on day 13 of being very sick and I am sick with worry about her. I asked her if she would have made different choices and she said absolutely. We have GOT to wear masks and stop gathering or it’s going to get you or a loved one. This politicizing scientific facts is so ludicrous. I am liking this site less and less so maybe it’s time for me to say goodbye. I just hate to miss out on the helpful stuff. Better an isolated Thanksgiving than an ICU Christmas is best meme I’ve seen. How you all make the leap from a mask, social distancing guidelines, etc. to concentration camps and Thanksgiving being outlawed is beyond me. I remember reading similar views when all the TSA stuff started at the airports and we all still take off our shoes to fly. Pretty sure nobody is getting reported for having family over and if they do nothing is going to happen to them. All your arguments sound so ridiculous when you’re worried about losing your mom.
I’m very sorry to hear about your mom. I sincerely wish her a speedy and full recovery.
My problem here is not social distancing or wearing masks. I have made the decision to do both, myself.
My problem is that people are being asked to report their neighbors who have made different choices. In an ever-widening gap, polarizing Americans further by encouraging them to call the police on people who are making a decision about what they choose to do in their own homes is incredibly wrong.
What those people are doing in their own homes, by gathering together and hosting spreader events, is not going to affect only themselves. It’s the foundation for community spread. Why is it so darn hard for Americans to look out for each other?
Spreader events?! Hope that Kool Aid tastes good????
To what do you attribute the almost 300,000 more deaths in the US over the same Jan-Oct periods in previous years?
There are no additional deaths to speak of. Turn off your TeeVee and educate yourself: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/05/covid-insanity-continues-us-seen-no-increase-overall-deaths-2020-yet-americans-continue-cede-god-given-rights-state/
You’re not really going to use the Gateway Pundit as an authoritative source, are you?
Shelley, you are absolutely right!
Thanks Daisy. I appreciate that. I guess only time will tell if people truly do report their neighbors and there are actual consequences. People are making the leap (on this post) to not doing anything our government and health officials say (“no masks, no social distancing” says the very first comment)
You DO NOT HAVE RIGHT TO FORCE OTHERS TO WEAR MASK OR STAY AT HOME AlONE.
You can take whatever measures you think are necessary for YOU.
ratting on someone for too many people in THEIR HOME ?? Really if you can’t see this is wrong you are the problem.
I hope your mom feels better soon.
Right? We isolated for Easter thinking ” better to isolate for Easter than have a dead Dad by Father’s Day.
Only problem is, dad died of a heart attack anyway.
I’m so very sorry for your loss.
Sorry to learn of your mother’s illness. While not meaning to make light of the situation, I think you should look at some evidence that masks are not a panacea–per Anthony Fauci about 10 months of so ago. Check these out:
I don’t mean to seem rude, but if a mask can’t protect you from a fart, why would you think it would protect you from a virus?
The mask isn’t to protect you from others, it’s there to protect others from you.
Lots of people develop no symptoms but are still spreading the virus. I believe it to be the majority. If these people are breathing near you without a mask, I’m sure your grandmother will thank you for passing it on because you didn’t wear a mask when visiting her.
Wrong. Stop repeating the lies you heard on the lobotomy box. Your face diaper is useless at stopping the spread of disease in either direction, and there are randomized controlled trials that prove it.
Masks aren’t used to protect you, they protect others from you.
Hitler Youth wannabees….
This is EXACTLY what Hitler did to Germany. People WAKE THE HELL UP. Just because your neighbor has a big family, and has people over, DOES NOT MAKE HIM/HER A CRIMINAL.
These Gov’s are not just disregarding our constitution, but rather are Stomping all over it.
Sooner or later, someone will report YOU and you will understand why you should start kicking your Hitler supporting politician’s out of office. And do it SOON!
I forgot to add: masks don’t work. Proven fact. And to top it all off, sooner or later Everyone Single One of us is going to be exposed to this horrible virus. It’s a virus–vaccine’s don’t work either.
Take vit c, get plenty of good, restorative sleep, stay home if you start feeling sick.
Covid is survivable. Please keep that in mind. I personally know someone who is 77 now and survived. Yes, she was sick, in the hospital, and came very close to dying. BUT, SHE SURVIVED. And is recovering.
I’m glad your friend survived. That is very good news. I’m hopeful that my mom will recover as well. She’s in really good health and active but 79 and has plenty of good years left. It’s just a scary thing to go through.
I’m not sure where “masks don’t work, proven fact” is coming from but I did see a FB post where someone highlighted on a box of disposable masks where it said they don’t prevent disease or something like that and that’s where they were basing the argument.
Cloth masks, homemade masks, anything not an N95 mask, none are intended for health care workers who are constantly exposed and in those cases, no they will not work. However, there are numerous studies showing that masks work in daily life and can help slow the spread.
You keep referring to the “scientific facts” that prove face masks work.
Could you please specify any scientific, double blind studies that prove that masks actually do protect the wearer or nearby people from contracting covid?
Also, you state that there have been “almost 300,000 more deaths in the US over the same Jan-Oct periods in previous years.” Could you please provide credible statistical evidence to substantiate your claim?
I look forward to reviewing the evidence you provide.
I took the statistics on death counts from the CDC site. You may think it’s “fake news” but graves are graves and you can count them, whatever you attribute them to. In your mind is every country in the world involved in some conspiracy theory to over report deaths? Perhaps you don’t believe in math.
Let’s set aside the relative credibility of the CDC for a moment, and just quote what they said.
” A new report from the CDC finds the U.S. has reported nearly 300,000 more deaths in 2020 than the typical number during the same period in previous years.
Defined as excess death, meaning “the number of persons who have died from all causes, in excess of the expected number of deaths for a given place and time,” the CDC said an estimated 299,028 excess”
The CDC is not defining “excess deaths” as the” total” number of actual deaths for the year. They are defining it as “more than they expected.”
If you review your post, you clearly stated “almost 300,000 MORE deaths.”
So if we are trying to compare the “total” number of US deaths this year compared to other recent years……well, I’m still waiting for the facts.
Like Barbour, do you have any math to back up your claims?
The figures I’ve seen from other sources indicate that the number of excess deaths caused by covid-19 are so slight that they are statistically unmeasurable. There are so many people expected to die of all causes anyway, and the CDC’s own figures no measurable increase caused by covid-19. So from where do you get your claims?
My sister took zinc with Vitamin D and otherwise just rested. She could barely stand up, but got better. I wish your Mom well.
I’m 73 , husbabd 82. We had covid together and are recovering. Utahorrible a b d the nany months of disability afterwards are horrible but i’m still a freedom loving pretty independabt American. Snitching on friends, family, or neighbors is still repulsuve.
And how does one go about holding such outrageous abuse by tyrants in officialdom legally accountable and punishable?
Lewis, the only way I know of, is to institute a class action lawsuit by WE THE PEOPLE. And make it stick. Trying to boot the politician’s out of power when the majority of the people won’t support it, is useless. Time to go to Court!
You all can forget the courts and legal route. It’ s all controlled now and conservatives have no chance legally to get anything done. Conservatives and Patriots are pathological rule followers which is fine in a fair and well run society but not when you face an enemy who does not follow the rules AT ALL and will use whatever means possible to eradicate us. If you are still concerned with doing it ” legally” then prepared to get steamrolled.
Heck no I would not be a snitch! I’m in Arizona and our Gov hasn’t locked us down ….yet. In the grocery store today I didn’t have a mask on and coming down an isle there was a guy that didn’t have one on either and he said: THANKS FOR NOT WEARING A MASK! and we had a nice chat about the whole ridiculous communistic thing. American must stand UP against all this and NOW! DONT TAKE THE VACCINE EITHER! Happy and a Blessed Thanksgiving to you all!
Susan, in Arizona too. I heard Ducy hasn’t the stones to call another lockdown. Has something to do about not wanting thousands of pissed off,and some armed,citizens, going to Phoenix and screwing up traffic again. Was there myself, had a blast.
Not even a thought in my head about doing something so lame and nosy… people need to get over themselves and mind their own dang business; what others do in their own home/on their own property is their business. In fact, at this point, I would be happy to see more people not going along with this draconian nonsense. It really says a lot about someone who would do such a thing, in my opinion… like how boring and sad is your life if you have to spend your time worrying about what is happening with other people on a holiday that is meant to be used to enjoy your family and to express thankfulness and gratitude for your blessings. ????????♀️????????♀️????????♀️????????♀️
Nope, I would not snitch on neighbors, even if they had a huge crazy (fun) get together with 50+ people. Honestly, I don’t care what they do. I focus on me, and my decisions.
We were invited to spend Thanksgiving with a couple we know and we initially said yes, and then declined because I have a cold and because of this crazy year, didn’t want to even take a chance of giving someone a cold.
You do you, I’ll do me, I won’t turn you in, and you better not turn me in.
That’s the world I love.
Sounds like its time to find hackers to backdoor into the hotlines. If people want to rat … let them face some of their own medicine.
Utter nonsense. Many if not most folks? Will not comply.
Stupid edicts like this? Are thebthings that make ordinary people snap.
Law enforcement is still very lean on friends after their conduct during the FIRST lockdown. Any further harassment by govt? These guys risk dire consequences if they decide to screw with people further.
That said, no mask for me, no distancing from families, no change to my routines whatsoever! Especially to accommodate control freak leftists.
Well, Thanksgiving is going to be just us, but that’s just logistics. DD and I just finalized Christmas plans. They live a couple hrs away and between work schedules and what not Thanksgiving just didn’t work for us. Christmas however, is on like donkeyking and no gooberment mandate is going to stop that. And who am I to question what my neighbors choose to do? Nunya. I am going to live my life, and it’s none of my business how you live yours. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I only have one thing to say to Gov Scott and his ilk.
Jawohl, Mein fuhrer!
Not sure if it’s 1984 or ANIMAL FARM but it’s definitely Orwellian.
Unless I hear gunshots, sounds of physical violence (yelling, someone getting beat up), breaking glass, or actual cries for help, I keep my nose out of people’s business.
Where I grew up, “snitches get stitches”.
NO,Daisy,it is NOT my business how many people gather at a neighbors house,for ANY reason. And vice versa. At some point,state governors are going to rue the day they came up with these’suggestions’ and mark my words,the lead will be flying. Most of the snitches are lonely,miserable,people who now have a purpose in life to make others miserable. It’s a sense of power they never had or felt before,and they absolutely love it. Sad,but they are going to find out just how fleeting that sense of power can be,and there will be hell to pay
Face diapers concentrate germs, making you MORE infectious.
There are 100 coronaviruses–they’re called the “common cold” or “the flu.” They go around every year in winter. Sometimes, they lead to pneumonia or tuberculosis. Sometimes, they kill.
The idiotic COVID test had a 20 to 50% false positive rate last spring. Gullibles took the nonsense seriously, so they increased the “sensitivity” of the test and now they are 90% bogus.
This is SERIOUS. The lies are going to KILL people in large numbers (as intended by the power elites). Snitching on others will cost them more than money. It could cost others their LIVES.
COVID-19 won’t figure in many of the deaths–but the false positives will provide the desired diagnosis, encouraging snitch-monsters to kill and kill and kill.
I take a very small comfort in knowing that the virtue-signalling monsters are following their own abominable advice–and therefore more likely to die.
The Solution is So Simple People.
If the Turkey Police come knocking on your door and want to arrest you for violating rules the hypocritical rule makers do not follow themselves. The solution is simple. Just tell them you are not celebrating Thanksgiving, you are peaceably protesting. Start chanting Black Lives Matter over and over to drown out any of their turkey orders. Wrap a black towel around your head and put on some ski goggles for dramatic effect. Aim your cell phones at them and ask for their full name and demand to see their photo ID. Demand that they show you a warrant. Demand to know the name of the neighbor who complained to the police. Some more good chants are “Go away! Racist, sexist, anti-gay!” – “Show me what democracy looks like!” / “This is what democracy looks like!”
Who you meet or talk to or eat with in the privacy of your own home is nobody’s business but your own. The government has no constitutional authority to issue any orders telling you who or how many people you are meeting in your home. The constitution is the law not Cuomo or Whitmer or Brown or Scott or any of these other power mad little Hitlers who think their word is law.
Demand for them to show you a warrant. If they have no warrant then tell them they are trespassing and need to leave.
If every time the Gestapo tried to enforce the orders of the these little Hitlers and they were met with defiance and the demand for a warrant the whole farce would fade away
First Amendment says:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” ,,, or “the right of the people peaceably to assemble”
Fifth Amendment says:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, hous-
es, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and
seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue,
but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affi rma-
tion, and particularly describing the place to be searched,
and the persons or things to be seized.
I have a whole DVD for how to counter the Gestapo when they try and Scrooge Christmas! Stay tuned. Operators are standing by.
If the cops were to show up at my door on Thanksgiving, I would do what I ALWAYS do when someone knocks on my door. I wouldn’t answer it. My friends/family know to call ahead and if they forget, they call while parked outside. Anyone not calling is neither a friend or family member and unless I sent for a pizza, a cop, a man with a clipboard or a door-to-door salesman, I just peek through a curtain to make sure it’s not a neighbor. If it’s a neighbor I DO answer. Otherwise, I don’t answer it. They can hang a note or a business/calling card on the door or just buzz off. If cops have a warrant, they’ll break down the door. I don’t live the kind of life that’s likely to generate warrants, hence the cops aren’t going to break it down, anyway. Why open your door–where I live, a stranger at the door is likely to be a home-invasion robber…
An excellent policy my friend and good advice. Happy Thanksgiving.
I’ve had covid. Recently lost a friend of 42 years to covid. Another good friend survived covid but lost a brother to it.
I know the hardship and pain of it but to rat out someone for a holiday get together. HELL NO!
And there is Governor Hooligan, who has declared that Maryland will have law enforcement and health department officials coordinating on enforcing the gathering restrictions which included the closing of bars the evening before.
PA Governor Wolf declared no alcohol to be served after 5 pm Wednesday night since it is a big drinking evening – INSANITY
No I absolutely would not snitch on a neighbor. In fact, I hope they all have as many guests as they want.
It’s really hard not to get depressed over all the stupidity and clear Totalitarian takeover that is happening in the USA…God help us!
Nope, our neighbors are not snitches, and we are all brazenly flouting the NWO “rules” to put us under their thumb.
Even in town, people ignore the mask rule. If someone wants to wear a mask, that’s on them. Mostly older folk are wearing them. If they’re sick, then they should stay home or wear a mask, so that’s cool.
But no one gives the stink eye if you aren’t wearing a mask.
And our neighbors make it a point to stay in touch, in person and via devices.
We will celebrate the holiday together – ALL of us – because we’re Americans together.
I live in Georgia(not Atlanta, thank God) We have no restrictions here. People who are at risk are encouraged to be careful. I would never snitch on anyone for having family and friends over. Not my business.
Turn in the politicians when they get caught, call the defunded police on them,
Yes indeed. Here in the increasingly commie state of VT, the kids will be forced to either lie about who/where they did Thanksgiving or else face being sent home for 14 days. If my child was still school age I hope I’d have been able to pull him out of our public schools by now.
And I’ve watched post after post by some here in my lovely state who have been publicly fingering every store, restaurant or business that in their opinion, isn’t taking “proper” Covid precautions(outdoor tables are “too close”, they don’t like the masks the employee is wearing, they allow people in without masks etc). So not a giant reach to turning in their neighbors as well. I’d expect they will gleefully turn in the neighbors for having banned guns next.
And yes, I do take Covid seriously. I do believe it exists and would rather not have it myself. But I still believe that taking the level of precautions you feel is needed is up to the individual. This is NOT the 1918-19 flue pandemic which struck and killed so many young healthy people . This is NOT wiping out kindergärtner classes. For the most part it is impacting the elderly who have medical issues and those in the general population who have serious health concerns, often along with obesity. Those who are most at risk should take whatever steps they need to feel safe but putting the entire country in a lockdown is nuts
It’s a bit dismaying to read all these comments that boil down to “You’re not gonna tell me what to do!” or in Kindergarten speak: You’re not the boss of me. I’d like to ask you, who you are going to call when you’re lost in the woods? Search and Rescue? These groups, of which I am an active member, rely on chain of command structure. Searchers are given strict orders on how to proceed and if your MO is “you’re not going to tell me what to do” you shouldn’t apply. Let’s say you happen to get sick and have to go to the hospital. Do you think the doctors, nurses, aides, and support staff have a personal attitude of “you’re not going to tell me what to do”? Did the men waiting offshore on the Normandy beach say that? A civil society is built on working together, taking care of each other, laying aside some of your “freedom” so that there is peace and safety. Of course there is a balance to be striven for so that individuals are not oppressed, but seriously, trying to stop a global health threat is failing because of the arrogance of “you’re not going to tell me what to do.”
OK, Karen. ????
Yes, I would like to report fasco-leftist Denver mayor who urged residents to “stay home as much as you can” but thn travels out of state to visit family for Thanksgiving https://www.cbsnews.com/news/mayor-of-denver-michael-hancock-who-urged-residents-to-stay-home-apologizes-for-traveling-for-thanksgiving/

Our county health department put out a number for complaints last week. Report businesses not complying with the mask mandates as well as report “overcrowded events” at your neighbors. Making it too easy to be a snitch.
“American Patriots” aren’t willing to report on their neighbors for this. Only sheep.
This Rebel will not comply !
If neighbors snitch and you know who they are, I’m certain there are some innovative people out there who can more than even the score.
If they come to your house and ring, don’t answer the door. Ignore them. What can they do? If they don’t have a warrant they are trespassing on private property.
Thankfully I live in a rural country where such monkey business is frowned upon for the tyrannical BS it is.
Complete control of the population is the ultimate goal under the guise of “safety of everyone.” Communism is where we are going.
If a member of my family were to rat us out, I would make them a pariah and make them social outcasts.
I’ve been coming to this site since before Covid for prep advice. Getting a bit too crazy for me. Leave it to a pandemic for the nut jobs to REALLY come out of the woodwork, including various websites to stir up the crazies to push page views.
