TRENTON, New Jersey (PNN) - April 17, 2020 - New Jersey citizens demonstrated in Trenton Friday against the “stay-at-home” order of Governor Phil Murphy during the coronavirus crisis.

The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce recorded video of the protest that showed a long line of cars honking their horns along West State Street, across from the Statehouse and Murphy’s office.

The chamber apparently tweeted about the demonstration, but that tweet and the video recording of the protest have been deleted.

According to the report, the demonstration featured people waving Amerikan flags.

The words “no more fear” were audible through a megaphone as a helicopter hovered overhead and terrorist pig thug cops blocked access to the Statehouse parking complex.

On Wednesday, New Jersey Senator Mike Doherty said he would like to see the state make more progress in lifting the shutdown unlawfully put into place by Murphy.

“I can no longer support Governor Murphy’s draconian shut down measures,” Doherty said. “He needs to stop his one size fits all approach. He is destroying small businesses and sending millions of New Jersey residents into poverty.”

Last week, Doherty urged Murphy to end restricting the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) only for individuals who have tested positive for the COVID-19 infection.

“When patients are presenting all the virus symptoms, doctors should be able to prescribe the best weapons at their disposal,” the state senator said. “It is indefensible for the State to withhold medication and wait days or weeks for a positive test to come back.”

Doherty has been critical of the fact that churches in New Jersey are shut down while liquor stores are considered “essential” services and remain open.

“Churches are willing to conduct outdoor, open air services with proper spacing,” said Doherty. “Murphy has rejected that while allowing the essential service of selling more booze to desperate citizens, and allowing customers to pull up to fast food take-out windows where the spacing between the customer and the server is zero inches.”

On Friday, the governor asked the Department of Homeland Security to extend work permits for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries to protect them from deportation.
