Kudos to Scottsdale Councilman Guy Phillips for standing up to mandates that violate our Constitutional rights.
And he should not need to apologize for using a truthful and factual phrase/statement!
Besides, any kind of censure making, or forcing, Councilman Phillips to apologize is a violation of his First Amendment rights.
“I can’t breathe” is not a trademarked, copyrighted, or otherwise protected phrase/statement.
Anybody can use it! (Don’t get me started on BLM.)
What part of “Freedom of Speech” do you not understand?
I have COPD and severe emphysema (No, they are not the same!) and have trouble breathing even on a “good” day.
When I put anything on as a type of face mask, I can’t breathe.
So, when “you” force me to wear any kind of mouth/nose covering and I pass out from lack of air, are “you” going to cover all of the incurred medical expenses?
Or, in a worst case scenario, will “you” pay for my funeral?
Why not? Wouldn’t that make a wonderful lawsuit?
Thank you Councilman Phillips for standing up for our rights.
