“That face mask you were duped into wearing symbolizes you losing your freedom of speech”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic required many people to wear face masks.

“That Face Mask you were duped into wearing symbolizes you loosing your Freedom of Speech” was written on a pickup truck at an anti-lockdown rally in Annapolis, Maryland, on April 18, 2020.

On Saturday in downtown Annapolis, Md., dozens in their vehicles drove in circles and honked during a lunchtime protest. One woman waved a sign out her window that said, “I want to save my business!!! I need to work!” Another man scrawled on his pickup truck, “The face mask you were duped into wearing symbolizes you loosing your freedom of speech.”

On a sign during one of the asinine protests in Maryland yesterday:
“The face mask you were duped into wearing symbolizes you losing your freedom of speech.”
Perfect example of people too stupid to think for themselves being goaded by an even more ignorant President.
