Land of the Free: Emerald Isle, NC: Navy Master Chief stands his ground, becomes face of freedom as coastal towns cautiously lift beach restrictions

Via The Feral Irishman


States have begun reacting to President Trump’s plans to reopen the U.S. and many coastal towns are lifting beach access restrictions put in place to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

As Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave the green light for some beaches and parks in the Sunshine State to reopen, lockdown-weary residents flocked to take advantage. In other coastal towns such as North Carolina’s Emerald Isle, the announcement of a pending reopening came after a stunning protest as residents had grown frustrated with what they saw as a violation of their rights.


  1. But they ignorig the petitions of surfers days earlier.

    1. They also arrested the surfers....not the navy chief, which was one of the things that he wanted to show people. The police won't arrest a select few people. They arrested the surfers, but not the chief....

    2. The mayor did open the beach after his protest. Thanks.

    3. Ha! Initially I thought you were my first Daughter Emily. :)

  2. Emily,
    Any source of info about the arrested surfers?
