Single Mom Opens Bar, Despite State’s Ban and Warnings

Videos by OutKick

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…

  1. What exactly does the government expect people to do? Just sit around and starve while they wait for covid to miraculously disappear forever in 5 years? That’s not realistic, it’s not happening, so we must continue the normal functioning of our society with it assuming reasonable risk The government must not be allowed to prevent people from earning money to eat and pay their bills when they are choosing to allow certain big business like Walmart, Costco, Publix, Target and Amazon to keep operating. Why do they get to while small business has to die? It’s hypocritical and flat-out wrong.

    I recommend reading and sharing Alex Berensen’s Unreported Truths booklet with your local community leaders to educate them on the ACTUAL science of covid. Our local leaders are going to kill us faster than covid ever could. We need to speak up…loudly, or our jobs will be next.

  2. If you don’t want to subject yourself to greater risk, stay home! The rest of us need to get back to living; otherwise we will have no jobs to live and work for. I hope the police ignore enforcing these draconian mandates
