Don’t take signs, please wear masks

I couldn’t think of anything easier to do to respect other people.

Enumclaw used to be a close-knit community. Trump has encouraged division, violence, and destruction that has infected our small town from all the way across the country. Trump supporters feel justified in accosting and abusing others if their beliefs differ from their own. I’d like to know…Why do you think it’s ok to destroy and vandalize things you disagree with? It’s immature and reflective of your blind devotion to our degenerate-in-chief. Trump says “go get them”, and his crazy little minions get out there and harass and assault people who are just minding their own business. If you want your opinion heard, act like an adult and vote. Put a sign in your yard. But don’t take signs out of my yard. That’s criminal, just like the POTUS.

Also, it is shameful that the No. 1 business in Washington fined for violating the mask mandate is in Enumclaw: Mail Express. You take the cake for endangering the community. If our kids can’t go back to school this fall, we know who’s to blame. It was reported that Mail Express owner “doesn’t want to be an unpaid against of the government”.

Really?! That is stone cold crazy talk. You should be shut down, just like a restaurant that’s giving people salmonella. And Headworks Brewing has been breaking the law (yes, I said law. Do your research) since day one by not even making the servers wear a mask. They are as bad as a frat party.

I hope everyone sees the danger these businesses put our families in, and choose other places to spend your money. The Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce has encouraged mask violations and needs to held accountable also. So incredibly selfish it’s unreal.
