Badass Rep. Thomas Massie Carefully Places Anti-Mask Protest Fine in Trash, Takes Photo

Have you ever been so angry that you have delicately balanced a pristine piece of paper in a trash can and taken a photograph? Well, hell hath no fury like Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who was outraged by letter from the House sergeant at arms that informed him that he was being fined $500 after staging a pathetic anti-mask protest with some of his colleagues on the House floor this week. Alongside a photograph of the completely uncrumpled letter resting carefully inside his otherwise empty trash can, the badass Massie wrote that he filed the letter “in the same location” as a previous one that gave him a written warning about his behavior. According to Forbes, Massie’s colleague Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was also fined $500 for going maskless in the House. She previously posted a video of herself shredding her own warning letter.

Tulsi Gabbard and Thomas Massie Take a Stand for the Fourth Amendment

The Patriot Act was passed in 2001 in the wake of the tragic 9/11 terrorist attacks. In the name of combatting terrorism, the sweeping law vastly expanded the federal government’s surveillance powers and ability to spy on Americans. In the nearly two decades since, the National Security Agency’s mass warrantless surveillance of American citizens was exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden, a key government spying program was declared illegal by a federal court, and only a minuscule percentage of federal spying has been tied to terrorism.
