Steve Hotze asked Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to order “rioters” be killed | The Texas Tribune (Dumb and dumber – don’t these hateful racists know that everything is recorded and filmed?)

“I want you to give a message to the governor,” Hotze told Abbott’s chief of staff, Luis Saenz, in a voicemail. “I want to make sure that he has National Guard down here and they have the order to shoot to kill if any of these son-of-a-bitch people start rioting like they have in Dallas, start tearing down businesses — shoot to kill the son of a bitches. That’s the only way you restore order. Kill ‘em. Thank you.”

NY partygoers get subpoenas after stonewalling COVID-19 contact tracers | Ars Technica

In response, Ruppert announced that the county will issue subpoenas to anyone who refuses to cooperate with contact tracing. So far, the county is processing eight subpoenas. In addition, those who do not comply will face civil fines of around $2,000 every day they are out of compliance. Ruppert went on to note that the young people exposed could go on to spread the virus to vulnerable people in the community, including older relatives, people with underlying health conditions, and young children who may be at risk of developing a severe inflammatory disorder. And even though young adults have relatively less risk of severe outcomes than other groups, they too could become seriously ill. “You may wish to be invincible,” Ruppert said. “But you’re not. None of us are against this dreadful disease.”
