WATCH: Anti-Vax “Protestors,” GOP Candidate, Argue With Police During Protest In Cheesecake Factory

Retail work and food service are hard work at the best of times, but with the pandemic, these employees have more on their proverbial plates than usual. They aren’t only dealing with additional safety regulations — extra cleaning and sanitizing, plus their own masks and/or vaccinations — but with worker shortages, and with customers who are taking out their anger over laws or company policies on the front-line workers who have no power to change them.

Enter the Cheesecake Factory. Actually, that’s exactly what this group of COVID-deniers, including John Matland, who says he’s running for Congress, did, and Patriot Takes obtained footage of the event — which participants claimed was a ‘sit-in’ — and shared it in a series of tweets.

Here’s a group of anti-vaxxers arguing with police in a Cheesecake Factory location on Tuesday noght. When informed that they can be arrested for criminal trespass if they refuse to leave when directed to do so, members of the group argue with police, insisting that they have a legal right to be there during business hours.

Further clips show more officers arriving and proving the ‘protesters’ wrong as they first order the group to leave, then arrest several who still refuse to do so.

That’s not all though — more video clips show that the group still thinks their rights have been violated. They’re using rhetoric comparing getting thrown out of a dining establishment — where they’re accused of bypassing the line of waiting customers and helping themselves to seats throughout the room — to Nazi Germany, and they threaten to sue and “shut down” the chain.

They announce an intent to return to the business the following night, and encourage supporters to make fake reservations at the restaurant to tie up tables and hurt actual business.
