Contributing once again to my home state’s persona of ignorant rednecks, a bar in Elgin, Texas is turning away any customer who shows up WEARING a mask. Yeah, the genius owner of Liberty Tree Tavern says “no masks allowed”. The bar reopened last week and says they are adhering to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s requirements (occupancy limited to 25% with 6-feet of social distancing). They posted this on the door:
“Due to our concern for our customers, if they FEEL (not think) that they need to wear a mask, they should stay at home until they FEEL that it’s safe to be in public without one. Sorry, no mask allowed.”
Note that Texas does *not* have a mandate to wear a mask. So yeah, I’m not sure what the owner is rebelling against. Time for us Texans to break out the guns and fight for our right to not infect other people.
