According to local accounts, two healthcare workers from a Denver-area hospital blocked lines of trucks and cars campaigning against the state government’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Hundreds of protesters defied social distancing laws on Sunday and gathered at the Colorado State Capitol in Denver calling for lockdown measures to be lifted and for nonessential businesses to reopen.
Karen was part of an army of protesters who crammed the capital city’s streets in an event called ‘Operation Gridlock’, to show their opposition to social distancing and lockdown measures. Tensions boiled over when a small group of nurses and healthcare workers took it upon themselves to counter-protest by standing in their way.
Two medical workers in scrubs and N95 masks were spotted blocking horn-honking motorists who had gathered at the State Capitol in Denver to challenge the mitigation methods, photos, and videos posted on a social media show.

Video of the incident showed a woman in an American flag T-shirt hanging out of her car window to yell at the healthcare workers.
“Go to China if you want communism,” she says, over loud honking.
“You can go to work why can’t I go to work?” the woman asks, referring to the closure of non-essential businesses in the state.
The workers didn’t appear to respond.
Several hundred demonstrators lined the streets to the city in their vehicles while honking their horns before circling it as pedestrians.
Many waved American flags and held signs that read “End the Virus, Not the Economy” and “We need stability to stay healthy,” according to The Denver Post.
This is sad.
It’s what happens when the ideology driven MSM uses its voice to divide Americans.
Of course all Americans can appreciate the work and sacrifice of our health professionals.
But MSM can only make this “us” against “them”
