Fox’s Judge Naplitano: More People Should Resist ‘Unlawful’ and ‘Unconstitutional’ Lockdowns
Fox News’ senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano has called on more people to resist what he called ‘unlawful’ Coronavirus lockdowns. Napolitano has been making this argument for some time but appeared to openly call for civil disobedience on Tuesday.
“All of these lockdown orders are without lawful authority. They’re unconstitutional, they violate the bill of rights, they interfere with our freedom of religion, our freedom of travel, our right to privacy, our freedom of speech, our freedom of assembly. I could just go right down the line,” Napolitano said.
The judge praised a previous guest on Fox & Friends, Ian Smith, a gym owner who was fined for reopening.
“The fellow that Steve just interviewed a few minutes ago, Ian Smith, I can say as a former superior court judge in New Jersey, is an American hero and a national treasure,” he said.
“We need more people to resist these unlawful incursions into freedom by the governors.”
“The clip you just ran of the governor of Wisconsin, he’s right, he lost this battle. He didn’t even follow the law. The law in Wisconsin says if you want to shut things down for more than 28 days, you have to get the consent of the legislature. He didn’t do it.”
“Governors are without authority to stop everything from happening,” Napolitano said.
