Last week, the town selectmen of Newfields, NH illegally passed an unconstitutional ban on “picketing” outside residences. Monday evening, approximately two dozen state troopers were sent to crack down on a peaceful candlelight vigil outside “HIS EXCELLENCY” King Chris Sununu’s house. Here’s the insane footage, edited from multiple sources thanks to Vincent of Shire Free Media:
The video is a revealing look at how blatantly police will violate any kind of supposedly constitutional protections. There’s no penalty for them or the town selectmen for the illegal ordinance and enforcement. No one gets fired if they lose in court or have to pay any sort of price for their violations.
Also, observe how the cops are constantly telling the activists what to do: Don’t stand there, you have to move. You can’t move there. You with the cane, you’re getting a ticket for not moving fast enough. Stop moving. Keep your voice down.
Their show of force is ridiculous, with a dozen agents on the scene when the vigil arrives. The troopers don’t even let them light their candles. Then after giving a bunch of arbitrary orders, another dozen cruisers roll in with agents toting batons in a ready-to-engage stance. They surround YouTuber Savage Truth 603 to arrest him for “disorderly conduct” and “criminal trespass” and curiously order the other guy with a camera to back away. The remaining activists are left on the path.
They even ticketed a credentialed reporter from NH Journal, Chris Maidment for “picketing”. NH Journal’s editor says they’re going to court. As should all of the people who were issued tickets – which is everyone who was there, including a man walking with a cane. Even if they lose in court, hopefully the candlelight vigilists will not pay the $100 fines, as doing so only encourages the gang.
Also, hopefully they will get out of the habit of thanking the police for abusing them. It’s hard to watch, but that’s how people are trained. No amount of respecting the police for “just doing their job” is going to help protect anyone’s rights. No thank you, cops. I don’t want your “service”. Leave us alone. You’re hurting peaceful people and trashing human rights. It’s shameful. Don’t thank them when they hand you a ticket.
The point of the Chronic Carols was to protest the insane war on drugs and do it in a creative and fun way, as singing is much more likely to bring people together or get people to listen to new ideas than say, chanting. Chanting can come across as mindless and angry whereas singing is harmonious. Singing is a virtually unassailable activity as a protest and the American civil rights movement had a lot of success with song, as did the “Singing Revolution” in Estonia.
Fast forward to the present situation where the war on drugs has lightened up a little – at least on cannabis – but now the war is coming against people who just want to breath free, associate with others, hug, or smile at another person. The madness of prohibition has changed into an insane medical authoritarian state. If there was ever a time for the Shire Choir to come back, it’s now.
Actually, the Shire Choir has already come back this year. It was when we visited the NH Attorney General’s house on Thanksgiving and performed the original Chronic Carols, since the war on drugs the AG is behind is still harming innocent, peaceful drug users and dealers. It was fun, but it was clear we needed some current material that could be sung in more places.
Thankfully, Captain Kickass – a longtime professional parody writer who happens to live in Keene – stepped up and cranked out four “COVID Carols” in just a matter of days. The tunes parodied include “Do you hear what I hear?”, which has become “Do you fear what I fear?”, “Merry Little Christmas” is now “Sterile Little Christmas”, “Joy to the World” as “Close down the World”, and “Little Drummer Boy” replaced by “Little Lockdown Boy”. Johnson Rice provided some talented graphic design to put the Captain’s creative lyrics to classic Christmas carols onto a dual-sided color songsheet that you can easily print out and share. Though we have the Shire Choir here in New Hampshire, these songs are intended for the entire world. You can form your own choir and sing anywhere this COVID madness and tyranny has struck.
Don’t let yourself be silenced by the state or social pressure. Sing loud, proud, and hopefully in unison with others. Download and print your own “COVID Carols” songsheet PDF now! Please do share it anywhere you like. It’s our gift to you that hopefully will brighten your spirits on what is an otherwise depressing year and holiday season. It’s darkest before the light – don’t lose hope and please make it your New Year’s resolution to join the liberty migration to New Hampshire in 2021!
Protestors in front of NH governor’s home for the first time ever.
As originally announced here at Free Keene, approximately one hundred people gathered Sunday afternoon at New Hampshire’s “governor” Chris Sununu’s house at 71 Hemlock Ct. in Newfields, NH. Many had been pushed over their limit by his recent statewide mask mandate, but it wasn’t just about him trying to tell people what to wear, it was also about ruining businesses and destroying jobs and lives with his “emergency orders”.
Sununu’s edicts have invaded our homes and businesses, so now we’re invading his. It’s been a long time coming and today was a lot of fun as we joined together from across NH. Sununu’s gubernatorial primary challenger, Nobody, was in attendance and purchased hundreds of dollars worth of pizza for the crowd on the cold, late-fall afternoon. Ten-year-old Lucas, who earlier had been calling out Sununu on a megaphone, grabbed a pizza and attempted to walk it up the driveway to offer it to the multiple state police officers that had been assigned to protect “HIS EXCELLENCY”. They told him to leave the property, as is shown in this highlights video by Vincent Moore from Shire Free Media:
Also, when the Domino’s driver pulled up, he had on a mask but removed it and smiled as he received plenty of cash tips from the excited attendees. It was a great day for us, but probably not for Sununu as he hid inside his home like the cowardly, sniveling politician he is.
Christopher Sununu’s home at 71 Hemlock Ct in Newfields, NH
Keene activists have a history of protests at corrupt bureaucrats’ homes. Now we’re going to the tyrant king himself, with likely dozens of others from across New Hampshire. Chris Sununu, referred to as “HIS EXCELLENCY” in the dozens of “orders” he’s issued in 2020, has now released “Emergency Order #74“. This latest diktat has imposed a statewide mask mandate:
Beginning on November 20, 2020, all persons over the age of 5 within the State of New Hampshire shall wear a mask or cloth face covering over their noses and mouths any time they are in public spaces, indoors or outdoors, where they are unable to or do not consistently maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from persons outside their own households.
While the order does include large loopholes for medical and other exemptions, Sununu’s orders have always included ways out for those paying attention. But most people just believe what the media tells them or that they hear through the rumor mill. They don’t actually read the orders. How could they? There are dozens of them and legalese is purposefully difficult to comprehend.
A select few are pushing back here in Keene, but despite being sued in federal court by a heroic Keene restaurant over his previous mask mandate on groups of over a hundred people, Sununu has doubled down and mandated masks statewide. Some are saying that there is no penalty, so no big deal. These people are uninformed. There does not need to be a penalty in each “emergency order”. In a previous executive order, #65, Sununu proclaims: “Violations of any Emergency Order, rule, or regulation issued under the State of Emergency are subject to the penalty provision under RSA 21-P:47.”, which says “If any person violates or attempts to violate any order, rule, or regulation made pursuant to this subdivision, such person shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.” While the entire concept of “emergency powers” is likely unconstitutional, I don’t know if anyone has ever challenged the enabling statute, RSA 4:47, in court, so it stands.
We will not obey.
Occasionally this year, there had been discussion among activists of a protest at Sununu’s home, but the support never really galvanized like it has now. Sununu’s new mask mandate was the final straw for those who erroneously hoped that he was going to change for the better for some reason now that he won re-election. Any such illusion has been wiped away as “HIS EXCELLENCY” has decreed over-and-over again various provisions making New Hampshire very much like Maskachusetts. As a result of his latest step towards crushing the souls of the good people of New Hampshire, people are finally standing up and moving the protests from the state house in Concord, to Sununu’s home in 71 Hemlock Ct, Newfields, NH.
The first event of what may be a series is expected to take place at 2pm this Sunday November 22nd. Creative signs are welcome and “Absolute Defiance” has also called for pots and pans to be banged. It will be the first time in the nearly fifteen years I’ve been here that I’ve ever heard of liberty activists targeting the “governor” at home. It’s historic.
Some will inevitably complain, “Oh his poor wife and children. It’s not fair to punish them for Sununu’s bad deeds. Just keep your protests to his office in Concord and other public appearances!” To them, I say: “HIS EXCELLENCY” and his precious orders have ruined countless businesses and lives. He’s put people out of good jobs with his “guidance” that is written and enforced as threats of violence. He’s not just suggesting people listen to him, he’s demanding it. He’s invading our private property and lives and it’s only fair we bring the consequences to his doorstep. If his wife Valerie doesn’t like our freedom of speech, maybe she should have a talk with her husband in the way only a wife can and tell him to stop hurting peaceful people.
Dozens gathered over the weekend in Concord, NH in front of the state house, to mourn the loss of countless businesses and individuals who fell victim to the government gang’s crackdown on freedom in the name of COVID-19. Here are highlights from the speakers at the candlelight vigil:
