“I went to war for this country,” Zapata said in the video. “I’ve been in combat and I never want to go back again, but I’ll tell you what. I will to save this country. If it has to be against our own citizens, it will happen.”
Amilitary veteran and local business owner pushed back against restrictions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Shasta County, California, during a community meeting last week.
The veteran, identified as Carlos Zapata, shared his grievances and warned about impending citizen revolt in comments to a panel of county authorities. A video of Zapata’s remarks surfaced on a few social media platforms and Reddit in the days following Shasta County’s public meeting.
