Diaper Report: 12/6/2022, by Eric Peters

Yes, there have been heroes who have made a stand against the Covid nonsense, sometimes at great personal cost. Eric Peters tells the story of one of them at ericpetersautos.com:

Some of you may recall Gourmeltz – the Fredericksburg, VA restaurant that refused to close its doors or “mask” its customers during the height of Sickness Psychosis two years ago. It just got Hut! Hut! Hutted! by armed government workers – because its owner, Matt Strickland, continued to serve customers after the state had revoked his ABC license as punishment for not “masking” his customers.

Strickland appealed and enforcement was held in abeyance – until just now.

A half-dozen AGWs descended on Gourmeltz the other day over the ABC license issue, which is an entirely bogus issue in that the only reason Strickland’s ABC license was suspended in the first place was because he refused to play Sickness Kabuki. It had nothing to do with alcohol – and everything to do with obedience.

In spite of the fact that Strickland – and everyone else who refused to play Kabuki – was right about the imbecility and the evil of Kabuki.


Strickland was among the few business owners who refused to play along, for his own sake as well as the sake of everyone else. For being a stand-up guy, in January of 2021, the Virginia Department of Health suspended Gourmeltz’ health permit. That “case” was eventually dropped, but the Virginia Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control picked up the baton.
