“They can’t tell me what to do with my body!” Texan Hank Hankerson exclaimed yesterday.
“If the state thinks it can tell me to wear a mask, it’s got another thing coming as it’s my body and I can do what I want with it.
“I won’t be muzzled.”
Hank, 43, who works at a gas station just outside of El Paso, takes a swig of his Bud Lite whilst driving his pick-up along the interstate.
“As an aside, there has been some good news today as I’ve just heard on the radio that the new Texan abortion law that effectively bans most abortions has been upheld by the Supreme Court.
“How dare these women have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies?”
Pulling into a strip mall, Hank spots a sign politely reminding people to wear masks.
“Who the hell do these people think they are dictating to us that we have to wear a mask to protect others during a public health emergency?
“We might as well be living in Nazi Germany if they think they can dictate what we do with our own bodies.
“Enough is enough. And I for one will never wear a mask and that’s my choice. I won’t be dictated to by some hoity toity politician or judge about what I can do with my own body.
“Wearing a bit of cloth over my face is against my human rights and society is going backwards if they think they can command us to do something to our bodies that we don’t want to. I’d burn my confederate flag before I’m made to wear a mask.”
