Anti-Vaxxer Protesting COVID Tests Berates Officer Who Pulled Her Over: 'Jesus Is More Powerful Than You'

A woman in Greenville, South Carolina ranted at a police officer after she was pulled over while driving a vehicle decked out in posters and flags expressing opposition to COVID-19 testing.

The now-viral video recorded on Main Street in downtown Greenville shows the woman demanding to see the officer's badge and declaring she has "three Navy officer children." The officer can be seen trying to inform the woman that she was pulled over because her rear window is completely blocked by a sign - one of at least six on her car. Several of the signs and flags blast the World Health Organization, tout a "plandemic" video and express her opposition to any testing or screening for coronavirus of any kind.

"Communist Greenville, South Carolina"

At one point in the video, the frantic driver can be heard yelling at the officer issuing her the citation, "Jesus is more powerful than you."

"I want to see your badge, I don't care. I want to see it, you know, your number, you read it to me I don't have my glasses on - read me your badge number," the woman exclaimed at the officer as he tried to show her the violation paperwork. "Oh, there's no reason to get upset because we're in communist Greenville, South Carolina?" she followed up shortly afterward.

The woman repeatedly accuses the officer of pulling her over for having a sign up which expresses opposition to wearing masks during the pandemic. But she acknowledges to the man recording the video that the ticket says it's for the sign "obstructing my view."

"I am not disorderly, I have freedom of speech," the woman says as the officer attempts to hand her the ticket between an American flag and an unidentifiable orange flag. "You're being disorderly! I am getting my glasses so I can read your badge number, sir."

The original poster of the video can be heard laughing after the woman described the town as "communist" and as she railed against him for "making me wait a half-an-hour" for the officer to write the citation.

The woman driving is only the latest person to express public outrage over a perceived slight in one's "freedom," which in recent weeks have focused primarily on wearing masks to help stop the spread of coronavirus. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control on Monday announced 718 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 along with six new probable infections. Seventeen deaths were also confirmed over the weekend and were tied to COVID-19.

"You take a couple of deep breaths, even with your mask, you need the breath with that mask," the woman tells the officer as he handed her the ticket to sign. "Jesus is going to be more powerful than you. You're on the last leg. I'll see you in court, Mr. Policeman, but I'll pray for you in the meantime."

Newsweek reached out to the Greenville police who declined to add any additional remarks about the incident.
