Larvita McFarquhar, who owns a small-town bar in Minnesota, announced on Facebook that she plans to open tonight, despite state orders that all bars and restaurants remain closed indefinitely.
According to the Daily Wire, she’s prepared to pay a fine and face possible jail time. After announcing her plans online, a Lyon County deputy warned her of the consequences.
“Yes, I’m aware,” McFarquhar responded, via Alpha News. “But are you aware that the governor’s mandate is not a law? The governor does not pass laws and you are supposed to uphold the Constitution. You don’t work for the governor. You work for us.”
It’s hard to come back from that. Straight killer.
But they tried anyway. The sheriff’s office even contacted her disc jockey to say he would be arrested if he performed.
McFarquhar responded with another Facebook video:
McFarquhar, a single mother, describes the recent months as “horrible” financially. She is struggling to keep her lights on.
She also points out flaws in the state’s approach, noting that despite her lack of income, her bar’s bills and taxes are due.
Win or lose, give McFarquhar credit for fighting back against the insanity. Since March, state governors — like Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) — have acted as power-seeking fools choosing power and partisanship above common sense.
Showdown scheduled tonight. Who ya got? Yes, I know, the verbal damage to the Lyon County deputy is already done…
