NBC outraged over maskless Florida supermarket-goers




A video that was taken at a Florida grocery store this week has gone viral after many people in the clip were shown without wearing a mask.

NBC News correspondent Sam Brock entered the store looking to buy a sandwich and “came out with a story” after he captured footage inside of a Naples supermarket this week that has sparked outrage by the mainstream media.

Over 4 million people have viewed the clip since Brock posted it to his Twitter account Wednesday and over 20,000 replies have sparked debate whether masks should be enforced or not.

A “mask exemption” sign posted on the front door of the grocery store states that if customers have a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, they are exempt and employees cannot legally ask customers about the medical condition.

“Those in our lovely government have ordered all persons entering indoor facilities to wear a mask. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you are exempt from this order. Due to HIPAA and the 4th Amendment we cannot legally ask you about your medical condition,” the sign reads.

The sign adds, “if we see you without a mask, we will assume you have a medical condition and we will welcome you inside to support our business.”

Grocery store owner, Alfie Oakes, told NBC’s “TODAY” show he does not believe masks work.

“I know the masks don’t work and I know the virus has not killed 400,00 people in this country,” Oakes said.

“That’s total hogwash,” he added. “Why don’t we shut the world down because of the heart attacks? Why don’t we lock down cities because of heart attacks?”

Oakes filed a federal lawsuit in November challenging the constitutionality of the Collier county’s mask order, the Naples Daily News reported.

Oakes alleged the mandate was being “selectively enforced” and claimed he was being targeted due to his political views, the newspaper reported.

Florida gov. Ron DeSantis said he will not impose a statewide mask mandate, however many Florida counties do have mask requirements. Under a Sept. 25 executive order by DeSantis, local governments are barred from assessing fines and penalties for noncompliance.

Nebraska woman who detransitioned sues doctors who facilitated removal of ‘healthy breasts’ when she was a teen battling mental health

Nebraska woman Luka Hein is suing Nebraska Medicine, the Nebraska Medical Center, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Physicians who facilitated in her gender transition when she was a teenager; Hein has since detransitioned.

Hein, who is being represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed the suit last week, for removal of her healthy breasts when she was a depressed teenager who struggled with mental health.

“Proceeding straight to breast amputation in a depressed, anxiety-ridden, gender-confused adolescent, who was incapable of understanding the lasting consequences of her decision, constitutes negligence for which Defendants are jointly and severally liable,” the lawsuit states.

Fox News reports:

Throughout adolescence, Hein struggled with her mental health and traumatic experiences, including being allegedly groomed and threatened by an adult man. She had serious mental-health struggles at age 13. By 15 she was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” and put on a fast track to have her breasts removed, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims that despite Hein’s history, doctors rushed her into gender transition without considering her psychological comorbidities. It says the defendants used deceptive euphemisms and unscientific terminology to sell gender-transition procedures to Hein.

For instance, their use of the phrase “masculinizing hormone therapy” was misleading as the process does not heal the patient but does “inflict harm that causes malfunctioning and malformation of the teenage body and brain,” according to the lawsuit. Testosterone injections, which Hein received as part of her attempted sex change, can cause many negative side effects including high blood pressure and permanent bodily changes such as the development of an Adam’s apple, deepening of the voice, abnormal hair growth, and male pattern balding of the scalp.

The lawsuit says defendants were also negligent in other ways, such as in their shifting from a standard medical diagnosis to the “affirming care” model, which embraces a person’s gender delusion as fact and discourages questioning.

Allegedly one doctor, Nahia J. Amoura, was prepared to go even further. “About a year after starting Luka on testosterone, Dr. Amoura recommended to Luka that she surgically remove her uterus in a partial hysterectomy as the next step in her ‘transition,’” the lawsuit states. The hysterectomy would have permanently sterilized Hein and created hormonal imbalances that would have required long-term medical follow-ups.
