The mainstream media and tyrannical government would have you believe that Americans are taking the COVID mandates lying down, millions of patriots across the country are fighting back.
In New York City, those who refused to comply with the mandate to receive two doses of a Covid vaccine were fired from their jobs and are barred from entering nearly every indoor venue.
For many, standing up for freedom is worth more than their careers and navigating through financial uncertainty.
Chants of “F*ck Joe Biden” have been echoed from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge in the deep blue city for months as thousands of fed-up New Yorkers march for civil rights and demand the manufactured Covid emergency come to an end.
New York Freedom Rally, a grassroots organization, that “promotes freedom in general and health freedom,” has held massive rallies two and three times a week since the start of the coronavirus pandemic demanding the government rescind oppressive Covid mandates.
Fighting for the God-given right to breathe and maintain genetic integrity is the hill to die on, Shawn Olivo, rapper and freedom activist with New York Freedom Rally told The Gateway Pundit in an exclusive interview.
On Sunday night, Olivo and over a dozen other unvaccinated members of NYFR decided to shop at the Nike Store and eat dinner at Whole Foods “like normal people” without a mask in an effort to snap the compliant city out of its hypnotized state of mass delusional psychosis.
But freedom has become a thing of the past in the Democrat-run city.
“We demanded service at segregated venues. Nike has been tough on us many times for just going in to shop without a mask. So we decided we all go with our faces free, as free people, to just get service. We didn’t go in there belligerently. We just walked in like normal people to go shop. They demanded we put on a mask. I kindly declined. Guards came. Store security came,” Olivo said. They told us we ‘must put on a mask.’ We told them, ‘No, we don’t.’ They asked for our exemptions. We told them that’s none of their business, that, ‘We’re just coming to shop. Let us get our stuff and we’ll be out of here.’
“They tried to stop us from going up steps. We kindly just walked in the direction past them and continued forward. We got up to the top step, I bought a pair of socks. Finally, the store manager came when no one else would serve us and he served us. And so, we all left with our purchases and successfully accomplished being a free people. Some of the staff verbally attacked us and made some disparaging remarks to some of our people. Some of us weren’t having it and we responded.”
After getting scoffed at, harassed, and threatened for not covering her face and presenting a vaccine passport, a woman with NYFR exploded in an angry tirade, calling attention to the stains on American history during slavery, Jim Crow and the Holocaust.
“Segregate me for what? We are not in the 1950s? You all swore Trump was going to do that,” she chided. “We are not in the 1950s. You want to segregate me? I am ‘unclean’ up in this — that’s what you think, sir?
She deplored the store full of customers for supporting Nike, warning the corporation enslaving “Muslim immigrants in China” who are “sewing your sneakers together with blood.”
“They’re medically segregating people,” she admonished. “What you going to do about that? My black folks, what are you going to do about that? Ya’ll don’t know about segregation. You wanted to champion BLM stuff. Stand up. Stand up! Keep quiet and ya’ll will be the same ones they put in the gas chambers – I promise you that. I promise you that.
“I’m not crazy, mam. I just have a long cultural history of what enslavement looks like and it looks like those that call me crazy.”
History is repeating itself, Olivo warned.
“We let people in the store know we are doing this for them. At the end of the day, this is the same thing they did in Nazi Germany. People complied all the way up to law enforcement – everybody was ‘just doing their job’ until the holocaust happened. We made that clear in the store that what we were doing was for everyone, including the staff. The NYPD came into the store, but they didn’t come and confront us and bother us. They waited outside.”
The group then went to Whole Foods and paid the price for ignoring the “vaccinated only” signs.
“We went to pay for the food and sit in the dining area which was only for vaccinated people. They demanded to see our vaccine passport. We told them, ‘No, we don’t need that,’” Olivo said. “New York’s discriminatory sign demanding we patrons present a vaccine passport warns in big bold letters, ‘You need to be vaccinated to sit here.’ But then it says in very fine print on the same sign, ‘it is against the law to be discriminated against and if you feel that you are being discriminated against called Health and Human Resources’ — basically telling us that there is no law that allows them to do this discrimination, right there on the same sign.
We walked right past the security that was trying to block the entrance from the dining area and we sat down and ate. And vaccinated people ate with us and we ate with them. When we were done eating, we left. When we were exiting, police finally walked in and told us to get out. We told them that we were leaving now. We tried to convince them that we are doing this also for them.
Just like in Nazi Germany, people complied all the way up to law enforcement and everybody was just ‘doing their job.’ I do understand how hard it is to make a decision and say, ‘I am just going to have to give up my job and feed my family and hold on to this career that I’ve worked so hard for.’ But the fact is, you have to do it because they are coming for you – they defunded the police. The police officers didn’t agree with us, except one who said, ‘I just want you guys to disburse. I am not hear to talk politics. The law is that this is a private business and you have to comply.’ I said this is a public business and its open for us and they cannot discriminate because of our vaccine medical status – things that they don’t have a right to know in the first place. He continued to tell us that is the law and they can arrest us. I said, ‘No, you cannot.’
In New York, 85 percent of the state, or 16,552,607 people, has received at least one dose and 72 percent of New York’s population, or 14,066,003 people, has been fully vaccinated, according to USA Facts. It’s unclear whether those figures are accurate.
But New Yorkers of every race, creed and political affiliation are willing to live free or die.
“Under no circumstances will I get this vaccine. That’s my own choice. I will not ever get it. I do not trust it,” Olivo said. “A lot of people get stuck on all the statistics and CDC documents. For me, it’s simpler than all that. Fauci has gone back and forth on his stance. First, he said it’s one vaccine and this vaccine will stop the virus in its tracks. Then you need another vaccine and another one. They flip-flop so much. Even the CDC announced today that 75 percent of all Covid deaths are people with co-morbidities. The people at the top are flip-flopping on the most significant information.”
Olivo, whose stage name is DVS 7.0, is using his music to create a cultural shift and organizing rallies and concerts across the United States to inspire The People to stand up against tyranny and end Covid.
