Don’t get me wrong, I think most peaceful protests are great. But how effective is it if a thousand or so people march to or gather at an empty building. If the media does show up they will report that a couple of dozen people show up?
Why do BLM protesters block the street?
because it has an impact and it makes the news. We are not advocating that. However, the pace to protest is in front of the news station, newspaper, and on the street in front of mask Nazi businesses. We understand that the government is leaning on businesses but they have made a choice to be a social justice enforcer and shamer. That needs to stop.
For this example, we will focus on Harmon’s Grocery Stores in Utah. From the companies website, (we have a screenshot in case they scrub it):
“Our top priority is the health and safety of our customers, associates and community,” said Dean Peterson, Harmons president and CEO. “We are hopeful that the impact to Utahns from the coronovirus is minimal, but we understand the situation is emerging. We are monitoring the situation and are confident that we are prepared to keep our stores open and safe.”
they sale alcohol.
That is very noble, on the other hand, they do sale alcohol. From the NHTSA site
“Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes — that’s one person every 50 minutes. These deaths have fallen by a third in the last three decades; however, drunk-driving crashes claim more than 10,000 lives per year.”
And the NIAAA says:
An estimated 88,0005 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women5) die from alcohol-related causes annually,
Keep in mind we are talking about healthy people who used a legal product, In relationship to COVID that would be the under 10 thousand deaths that the CDC announced. In other words, no other underlining conditions. What about the child killed by a drunk driver?
Does Harmon’s care about that? We are calling on Harmon’s to stop the sale of alcohol, for the health and safety of your customers, associates and community.
What about Heart disease?
It is linked to red and processed meat, does Harmon’s sale that? Yes, they do. The CDC on heart disease:
About 655,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease costs the United States about $219 billion each year from 2014 to 2015. This includes the cost of health care services, medicines, and lost productivity due to death.
Does Harmon’s care about that? We are calling on Harmon’s to stop the sale of red and processed meat, for the health and safety of your customers, associates and community
Does Harmon’s sale soda pop, candy, or anything with carbs? Oh yes, they do. They are known to contribute to the cause of Diabetes. Here is what the CDC says on that:
Diabetes can have serious health consequences. The ADA report that more Americans die from diabetes every year than from AIDS and breast cancer combined. According to the CDC, 79,535 deaths occur each year due to diabetes. The number of fatalities related to diabetes may be underreported.
Does Harmon’s care about that? We are calling on Harmon’s to stop the sale of soda pop, candy, or anything with carbs, for the health and safety of your customers, associates and community
Look at all the death that Harmon’s has contributed to each year, Harmon’s needs to live up to it, for the health and safety of your customers, associates and community. Well, that will put them out of business, right? Your choice Harmon’s, or you could just stop with the mask Nazis.
So protest Harmon’s with signs asking them to stop contributing to so many deaths each year.
