Passionate vaccine-hesitant individuals have taken over a TikTok video. They are intent on proving that a possible sign of food shortage is due to what they see as freedom-sucking mandates.
A TikTok clip shared by Mickeli Francisco has touched all corners of the internet. Yet, there is nothing adrenaline-rushing or laughable about this clip, with it only showing empty store shelves.
The TikToker zooms in on the sign on the shelves, explaining the situation and why they are empty. She then zooms out, showing how barely stocked it is.
Francisco expressed how stunned she was in her description by using a shocked face emoji. The sign on the shelves partially read:
“Attention customers. We are unable to receive truck shipments until further notice.”
The clip has gathered an excessive number of likes, currently standing at around 9,700. The comment section is a storm reaching just over 1,000 remarks, a highly significant number of them affirming that there is a deeper reason for the deficit in stock.
The individuals claim that the shortage is due to a strike against imposed vaccine mandates. Many viewers stand in agreement with these workers, with one writing:
“We have to realize that we the people we truly have the power to rise up! We cannot let the government take over our lives.”
One individual purports that they had been warning everyone that this would happen. This viewer claimed that his ideas were dismissed as conspiracy theories.
One TikTok user called Disrespected Trucker has been explicitly vocal about their support for this uprising and anti-vaccination sentiments in general. His account has reportedly been taken down.
He referred to how childish he finds it that grown adults refuse to wear masks.
Truckers within America were purportedly planning these protests since August. This backlash has come after a strike of a related nature located in Australia.
As the pandemic rages on, anti-vaxxers continue to clash heads with those urging everyone to get the vaccination. The other controversial argument falls towards the masks, with both sides not backing down.
One man, in particular, made his voice known on a large scale. A kindergarten father to a 5-year-old became famous after his speech at the Tennessee-based Williamson County Board of Education on the importance of wearing a mask.
Justin Kanew pointed his enthralling argument at parents who opposed the idea of their children wearing masks at school. He struck a chord when he referred to how childish he finds it that grown adults refuse to wear masks.
Kanew emphasized that even his toddler can understand why it is the right thing to do. As the heated arguments continue, so does the pandemic, and who knows when either will end.
