An Idaho woman showed up to a city council meeting dressed in what she described as Muslim attire, as an example of the lengths she says she goes to just to avoid wearing a mask.
This went down Monday in the city of Lewiston, where council members opened the meeting with public comments … which brought forth a throng of angry citizens, many of whom were griping about local mask mandates and restaurant shutdowns, claiming it was illegal.
Eventually, this woman — who ID’d herself as Katie Dugger — stepped up to the podium … wearing a bright purple headdress that she later said she got in Peru, but apparently used in public to get out of putting on face covering.
Watch for yourself … it’s bonkers. Basically, Dugger says in order for her to go to school in-person, this is what she has to wear to get by without any hassle, passing herself off as a Muslim. She even wraps the fabric around her face like a burka, to bring her point home.
She isn’t using the religious liberty argument … she claims her aversion to mask-wearing is all about childhood trauma 🤷🏽♂️.
In any case, it just goes to show … the inclination to fight masking up — even at this point in the pandemic — is still very much alive in this country.
