'Do Not Comply': Tony Spell Sees a Direct Line From Mask Mandates to Concentration Camps

Radical right-wing pastor Tony Spell appeared on “The Pete Santilli Show” Thursday, where he likened requiring schoolchildren to wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to the Holocaust.

Spell, who has been locked in battle with authorities in Louisiana for more than a year over his steadfast refusal to abide by any of the state’s stay-at-home orders, mask mandates, and other public health restrictions, declared that Americans must “resist” and refuse to comply with efforts to limit the spread of the virus.

“Imagine telling a child, ‘Put this mask on to sit in your class, take it off or pull it down to sip or put something in your mouth, and put it back up,'” Spell said. “Why? Well, because the government says so.”

“Put this Star of David on your arm, and go to the Warsaw Ghetto. But why? Because the government said so,” he continued. “Get in this cattle car and go to six concentration camps, strip off your clothes, naked, hand you a bar of soap like you’re going to take a shower. Why? Because the government says so. And then they drop Zyklon B, and 6 million Jews are murdered in Hitler’s concentration camp, and 50 million civilians are killed under the crooked cross of the swastika. Why? Because a madman said so.”

Thousands of supporters flock to see Trump in Orlando, but it wasn't a sellout



Thousands of supporters — though fewer than predicted — cheered Donald Trump in Orlando on Sunday as the former president proclaimed his usual litany of attacks and hinted he would run again in 2024.

Trump, who has been publicly flirting with another campaign for the White House for months now, was in town as part of his four-city “History Tour” with ex-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

“I said loud and clear,” he told the crowd at the Amway Center, repeating his false claims of victory over Joe Biden in 2020. “We won the first time, and the second time we won by even more. And it looks like we might have to think about very strongly a third time.”

Guests began entering when the gates opened at noon. But just like at the kickoff event in South Florida on Saturday, turnout was light enough that ticketholders for upper bowl seats were told they could sit in the lower section instead. Trump’s representatives had predicted the shows would sell out.

Tickets started at $100, with VIP seats reportedly costing thousands more. But by Sunday morning, prices for some tickets had dropped to as low as $40.

Outside the arena, the scene was less bustling than a typical Trump rally, with only a few stands selling “Let’s go Brandon” and “Trump/DeSantis 2024″ merchandise. There was just a small police presence.

The MAGA movement has become Project Mayhem.

The whole thing about MAGA is that they want to "own the libs". In Fight Club, the second evolution of Fight Club was called "Project Mayhem" and the goal of Project Mayhem was to create as much mischief as possible in order to gain notoriety among fellow members and even make the nightly news. That's what is happening with this group. They're "owning the libs" in order to gain influence among the MAGA elite and even wind up with a mention from the man himself. Only... you're not really supposed to talk about it in real life.

That's why you see stickers on gas pumps blaming Biden for the high gas prices, your neighbor flies an "FJB" flag, maybe a song pops up on your social media feed called "Let's Go Brandon" and eventually even full blown parades or boat parades (where the ships all sank). Cars covered in bumper stickers. People waiting outside Dealy Plaza because they think JFK Jr is going to show up and arrest all of Trump's Deep State detractors. People screaming on planes about mask mandates getting arrested. People wearing shirts that misquote our founding fathers or praising murderers and serial killers. People with decals of him on their car windows and full blown shrines in their house.

But there's a connection with all of this. It's all designed to intentionally annoy people while getting these people in the news and getting them notoriety among the MAGA world, while doing everything possible to please the MAGA in chief himself. And let's not discount the fact that Mr. MAGA in chief himself encourages this stuff. He loves seeing his name out there, and he puts it out there to get his name out there - and he rewards it back with his signature shit-eating grin and thumbs up ritual. They're basically doing his marketing for him.

It's all a *wink wink nudge nudge* kind of deal with the MAGAs. But they don't talk about their misdeeds or mischief in real life because they know they would have serious consequences for them if they did. If they did recognize each other in public, it would be with a slight nod or a wink. But they do this for notoriety among the other MAGAs, like that guy who got arrested and had the "fuck you" tattoo on his middle finger. It's all fun and games with them. We're essentially dealing with trolls who take their trolling off the computer.

The MAGAs do this for notoriety online while pretending that their mischief doesn't have consequences, when in actuality, it does and they can get arrested, fired, or go to prison for it. And a lot of them have. But that doesn't stop them and any time you attempt to call them out for it, they respond with "YOU CAN'T CANCEL ME!!!" and "DO NOT COMPLY" bullshit. If you tell them "no", it only makes them want to do that thing more. It's truly sad and pathetic for those of us who are trying to lead actual lives. Seriously you wonder how everyday people fell for the Nazis, well this is it. It's an underground fight club that began in the basement and is creeping into mainstream society.

Trump's new social media company is under investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission

The deal between a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) and former President Donald Trump's new social media company is being investigated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators, according to a report filed with the SEC that was first reported by the New York Times.

According to the document from Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) — the
SPAC
that intends to merge with Trump's new media venture, Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (TMTG) — the SEC has requested documents about meetings of the SPAC's board of directors, "policies and procedures relating to trading," identification of certain investors, and copies of communication between DWAC and TMTG.

Trump first announced on October 20 that he was launching a new social media company, "TRUTH Social," under the auspices of TMTG.

"We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced," Trump said in his statement announcing the launch. "Everyone asks me why doesn't someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!"
