The protesters gave on camera interviews, including former Lincoln City Mayor Don Williams, who held a sign that read: I’d rather be FREE than safe!

Ten people were involved with the effort and stood in front of Starbucks, Lil’ Sambos, Robben Heating and Coastline Auto Detail. One gentleman, a Veteran, stopped his truck and joined the protesters, who happened to have extra signs ready.

  1. Thank you everyone….I put on my TRUMP hat and raced down but you were gone. Tell us when you plan to do it again.

  2. Why plague doctors wore those strange beaked masks. In the 17th century, people believed these outfits could purify poisonous air. They were wrong.

  3. Please post the names of the businesses these individuals own so I know where not to shop in the future. “I’d rather be free than safe” is not the motto of a sandwich shop owner I ever want to frequent again.

  4. Keep up the good work. Don’t worry about P dosen’t sound like they care about the 1st amendment or the rest of the constitution. I will join you some of the days.

  5. Bet every one of those protesters has willing consented to the illegal unconstitutional searches at the courthouse!!! Your freedom has been going bye bye since 9-11. Too late to stop it now, just like a virus.
    ORS 401.175
    Additional powers during emergency
    (2) Assume control of all police and law enforcement activities in such area, including the activities of all local police and peace officers.

    (3) Close all roads and highways in such area to traffic or by order of the Governor limit the travel on such roads to such extent as the Governor deems necessary and expedient.

  6. So funny as you were all standing 6 feet apart. So you do understand the science behind keeping people apart during a pandemic? We are seeing low numbers of death because what the Governor and the President implemented. Would you rather have let this spread far and wide?

  7. It’s not that we who live here fell trapped. But with a Hospital the size of ours we gave to be careful. Stay home,enjoy your family and let’s all ge safe

  8. Oh yea, like the science behind standing six feet from the guy in walmart and being safe,
    But….
    when you stand six feet from the guy at Church your putting our community in harms way?

    • Pretty sad to go to a church that has so few members they can be 6 feet apart. Your “god” won’t protect you!

  9. All these extraordinary steps for something that will likely turn out to far less serious that the annual influenza. With so many now unemployed and trillions lost in the economy, but hey, never let a good emergency go to waste when there’s a revolution to win. Viva Che Guevara. SMH.

  10. Lincoln Co. right-wingers continue the Quixotic quest to channel the soon to be late President Trump in a cynical warning to Oregonians!

  11. Not going to say I agree… I’d rather be safe and live/not risk getting the virus. I can see there are those out there that don’t think the same way I do. But I’m pro trump and I’m glad trump and our governor did what they did. Shows they care. Yes, I’m out of work too and I still feel that way.

  12. our constitution guarantees the right of speech – no question about it. but just to be clear — if you are willing to put the lives of people in your community at risk – to get senior citizens killed — do not expect me to frequent your business or lend support to your cause, now or atany point in the future. so please show your faces. maybe even post your names. peace.

Spot on…

  14. Stupid is as stupid does. We are still in the beginning of this pandemic, and many more deaths will happen. I dont gainsay the right of protest, as it is enshrined in our Constitution. I merely point out that the current death rate is 3 times the expected death rate, and I for one am not willing to die for dollars. For love, for honor…but not dollars.
