Pro-Trump Christian Compares Wearing A Mask To The Holocaust, Says He Would Rather ‘Be Beheaded’ Than Wear One: Watch

Right-wing anti-LGBT crusader Scott Lively shared a video over the weekend giving his thoughts about wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. According to Lively, he would rather die than have to “become a safe slave in a global totalitarian government.”

“[The benefits of wearing a mask] must be balanced against the disastrous consequences of surrendering personal liberty to overreaching government, especially regarding face masks, which are in some ways worse than police-enforced lockdowns because they represent a literal in-your-face exercise of statist power like Islamist head coverings for women or the Nazis’ yellow star for Jews,” Lively said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “Unnecessary public mask wearing, as opposed to reasonable usage, is no less a statement of psychological submission to higher authority than a dog collar.”

“In the greater scheme of things, I believe liberty is more important than security if one is forced to choose between those two,” he continued. “Those who don’t believe that are ripe for the Mark of the Beast, which is what this entire season of chaos is really about, in my view. Personally, I would rather die or be maimed from COVID-19, or be beheaded by a mob of anarchists and Islamists than become a safe slave in a global totalitarian government.”
