The Biggest Lie In History Of Lies: ‘That Can’t Happen Here’ As We Watch American State Officials Display China-Like Tyranny
The Biggest Lie In History Of Lies: ‘That Can’t Happen Here’ As We Watch American State Officials Display China-Like Tyranny By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
Tyranny: “arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.” – Dictionary.com
Regular ANP readers know that from the beginning of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we encouraged healthy individuals to self-quarantine if at all possible, while taking preventative or protective measures, via face masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer, when forced to go out, in order to keep their good health and limit exposure to anyone that could be infected or be a carrier.
Our suggestions and recommendations were for people to voluntarily take steps to protect themselves and for businesses to allow people to work from home if at all possible because a number of people refused to take the danger seriously. They ended up catching the virus and spreading it around, so we believed the healthy should just take preemptive measures to stay that way.
I repeat, those suggested steps, as well as pre-prepping for the spread of COVID-19 here in America were encouraged for people to do voluntarily.
Doing something voluntarily and having federal, state or local officials mandate the behavior of Americans are two very different things.
One is common sense and smart protective and preventative measures, and the other violates the constitutional rights of Americans.
With that said, officials in a number of states are abusing their power and authority by treating their citizens as if they are criminals. Forced lockdowns, fining their residents for nothing more than visiting a neighbor, or walking the wrong way on the sidewalk, or sitting in a parked car with the windows closed during a radio church service
The images we are seeing coming out from within the United States, are reminiscent of what we watched in China, where the virus originated in the early days of the pandemic before it had spread across the globe.
DON’T SAY ‘THAT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE’ – IT ALREADY IS HAPPENING
The first image and video is of a man in China pulled off the Metro by law enforcement for not wearing a mask, was taken from a 17 second video, published by Guardian News on January 28, 2020. The second image and video is of a man being dragged off a bus in Philadelphia, PA, in the U.S, published on April 11, 2020, for not wearing a mask.
The two short clips are below the images so readers can see the entire thing for themselves should they wish to.

For those that continue to claim “it can’t happen here,” NEWSFLASH: It just did.
Depending on who one asks, we see different answers as to whether masks are a “requirement” on public transport in Philly, or a suggestion.
According to the Philly Transit Riders Union “SEPTA website says nothing about masks, twitter feed says they are required, operators are told they’re not.”
We double checked and now we see the SEPTA’s official stance, now on their website under the COVID-19 update section, states “New guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advise wearing a simple cloth face covering, when out in public, to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Following this guidance, we URGE all customers to wear a mask or other facial covering when traveling on SEPTA to protect customers and Operators. Surgical masks are being distributed to frontline Operations personnel as part of this effort. Please comply with this request for your protection and the protection of others.”
Therefore it was not under the orders of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) that the unmasked passenger be dragged off the bus, but rather the actions of out-of-control law enforcement officials abusing their authority.
