COVID-19 Twitter Flame War Over Denver Protests

COVID-19 Twitter Flame War Over Denver Protests

She appeared to be expressing the view that closing down non-essential services in the U.S. is equivalent to the actions of a communist state, as she continued: "If you want communism, go to China".

Images of the health care workers' protest may seem reminiscent of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in China in which one protester faced down a tank.

Two Denver, Colorado, healthcare employees were caught on camera Sunday blocking protests against the state's stay-at-home order prompted by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

"They were blocking the roads until the police force stepped in", McClaran told the New York Times.

Hundreds of people gathered at the state Capitol in Denver on Sunday, waving flags and protest signs and lines of cars and trucks drove around honking their horns. Then, she yelled to the protester wearing scrubs: "This is a free country".

"We're having to be surrogate family members for our dying patients", Alexis said. We offer twenty examples below - ten representing those who see participants as patriots, and ten expressing the opinion that they're complete morons. "You can go to work, why can't I go to work?"

Protests similar to the one in Denver have popped up all over the U.S.in states like MI and Washington in response to shutdown orders.

The number of coronavirus deaths in the United States rose by nearly 2,000 in the past 24 hours to reach 40,661 on Sunday, a tally from Johns Hopkins University showed.

According to local reports, some protesters said that they believed the government shutdown was part of a wider plan to undermine the economy and hurt Donald Trumps' re-election prospects.
