Another Car/Bike Rally Being Promoted

May 11, 2021 | 63 Comments

[Updated] According to promotions circulating on messaging apps and social media, another car/bike rally is apparently being planned for Sunday, May 16th.

The first rally — dubbed the ‘Bermuda Freedom Car/Bike Rally’ and held to protest various aspects related to the pandemic — was held on Sunday, May 2nd, with the event seeing over 200 vehicles take part, traveling all over the island for over three hours.

The new rally being planned is scheduled to start at 12 noon and the apparent route being circulated indicates they plan to travel islandwide again.

Update May 12, 11.28am: The organisers have announced that the start has changed from Victor Scott — somewhat ironically as it is being used as a vaccination center that day — to the Dellwood school field.

“The Bermuda Government has not changed its stance regarding its tyrannical approach to Covid-19,” the organisers social media page states, “In response, the Bermuda Freedom Alliance [BFA] will hold another Car/Bike Rally on Sunday, May 16th, 2021. We call for all in Bermuda who opposes ALL forms of discrimination and tyranny to join us in asserting our freedoms and to participate in further action beyond.”

    These people would do a lot more good if it #saveourrestaurantsbda

    A car rally is not going to get Bermuda going again.

    • LOL - the real one says:

      How about a march on Parliament?

      • Unbelievable says:

        Well yeah you can march on Parliament. See if that helps your cause. It won’t. Sooner or later, everyone will get vaccinated. “Rallying” against a vaccine is dumb and ignorant. I’m sorry, but it just is. There is no foundation to their “concerns”.

        • Ringmaster says:

          I’m staying home to protest this protest as the organizers don’t seem to know what they want to protest.

        • Ffs says:

          Nobody is rallying against the vaccine. Take the vaccine if you want, nobody cares. The rally is against discriminatory quarantine policies. How many times must this be said before you and others get it?

          • Unbelievable says:

            Ok well it’s still dumb and will achieve nothing.

          • Sandgrownan says:

            Perhaps the group should take all the conspiracy crap off their FB page then.

            Have you read anything about community spread? Anything at all. This is just a bunch of petulant children who want to have a set with their ace-boys.

            Selfish twats.

  2. sandgrownan says:

    What a bunch of muppets. How utterly childish and pathetic.

    • Burt's Beard says:

      I SAID, STOP INSULTING THE VOTERS!

      • anon says:

        The people getting vaccinated are also voters…

      • saud says:

        You really thing ANYONE gives a crap what you said?

        WTF do you think you are, you’re just another selfish moron.

  3. sandgrownan says:

    I just had a look at this group’s Facebook page. It’s a vortex of medical untruths and disparate arguments. What it does show, however, is that Bermudians are ignorant and incapable of thinking about anyone other than themselves.

    It’s rather like these idiots who fly kites all the time, with the incessant buzzing. There is zero thought for their fellow man. It would be trivial if peoples lives were not at stake.

    I’ve reported the page to FB for spreading false medical information.

    • RiskyBusiness says:

      This is the era of self governance..the Aquarian age..gnosis.

      the powers that were, will not overcome.

      We will not give ourselves over to experimentation.

      Spiritual warfare, chemical warfare is upon us. We will not submit to the DemiUrge and this illusionary Matrix. Pick out of this what you may. Know that God is within, not without.

      There’s nothing to fear,for the infinitesimal drops of the Divine Source, housed within some of these 3D vehicles.

      Take comfort and solace in that and try to connect to that Divine Source, before we push up daisies. The information is out here.

      Seek and ye shall find.

      • St. David's says:

        Thank you for providing an example of the type of people supporting the rally. Smh

      • rendezvous says:

        How is “the divine/spirituality” in any way relevant in this discussion regarding the health and lives of others?

      • Jen Marcel says:

        Agreed. This is on point. We do not consent.

        • sandgrownan says:

          That’s fine. Do not send your kids to school, do not go to bars or restaurants. Do not ride buses of ferries. Do not get on an aircraft.

          • SandgrownanIsAKaren says:

            We will do as we please and go where we want. If businesses are suffering from lost revenue and close if the unvaccinated are banned, then what? If this all dies down and no restrictions are necessary do you think the unvaccinated will forget about how we were treated? NO we will not. If the vaccinated all start developing problems down the road in months or years, what do you think our reaction will be? I know mine will be zero concern. ZERO!

            • sandgrownan says:

              anti-vax muppet.

              Go watch Searching for BigFoot, or Ancient Aliens. It’s right on your level. They still have some tinfoil left at Supermart if you want it

        • saud says:

          LOL…you’re a numpty

      • Clear Blue says:

        I agree that “the powers that were, will not overcome” although maybe you should use less poetic language,
        I don’t see how you people offer anything better than what we currently have.
        Just another faction that think their personal feelings overcome logic, reason, rationality, cleverness, cunning and intelligence. They don’t and never will.

      • Johnny B says:

        The dinosaurs were spiritual AF and look where they are.

    • LOL - the real one says:

      One can see why you have no friends. Yesh. S

    • MYOB says:

      Your first name must be Karen. Chill

  4. Mark says:

    Yay! Another numpty convention! Smh. Amazed they like to flaunt their ignorance and selfishness.

  5. Sad says:

    I agree. Or is it a ride to ensure their own death and unemployment. Yes. Very, very selfish.

  6. OnlyInBermuda says:

    Hmmm. What could one possibly do to disrupt this plan then????

  7. Southampton says:

    Are these idiots really serious?
    Goes to show you just how stupid some Bermudians are.

    • TruthPromotor says:

      The sad truth is we may seem ignorant…But we are fighting for your freedom and liberty that you are so easily trying to give up..continue to wear your mask that absolutely doesn’t protect anything and keep believing these doctors that wanna push this poison into your system..Same people making the vaccine was talking about population control and people lining up for the experiment…You can’t make this stuff up..People will perish for lack of knowledge!

      • Mark says:

        Youre either a troll or completely ignorant. Educate yourself or stop. You dont realize that not getting the vaccine harms others and spreading nonsense like this post does as well. Be part of our society or move to trump land pls.

        • MarksASheep says:

          If you are confident the vaccine works, then you are protected. Why should it be someone else’s responsibility (and ppl you have called names and slandered especially) to protect YOU? The hesitant to take this new experimental approved for Emergency Use Only have that right to be hesitant. Also where is Trump land? Have you not heard they installed Dementia Joe as the leader?

        • Mark says:

          Actually your more likely the prime candidate for Trumpland; or some other fascist country.

        • Truthpromoter says:

          Not getting the vaccine harms other lol…I am not responsible for another individual health but my own..so let me guess the Vaccine is the savior for everybody… still no cure for cancer diabetes from big pharma just medication to keep to coming back..Slavery was legal and now you want me to believe the governments around the world care about me…You Guys are so lost it’s unbelievable how much people are still sleep with all the research out there to be found!

      • Unbelievable says:

        @TruthPromotor – I won’t tell you how silly you sound (actually I will: you sound silly) but let’s make a deal? You stay away from me and I’ll stay away from you. You’re a danger to society with this type of mania.

        • WELL SAID says:

          yes keep to themselves in close proximity without masks, may i suggest start at argus banks and head due south. bet there are super spreaders amongst them., so thanks in advance for the next lock down bunch of twats.

        • Truthpromoter says:

          And you are a danger to our freedom…go do some research all y’all just go off the media around the world and of course the media is ran by the elites that keep you brainwashed…and when you do your research don’t use google you might actually learn something bunch of sheep that can’t think for themselves so they depend on the government to think for them lol

        • Truthpromoter says:

          And your a danger to democracy!!!!!!!!!

      • get away says:

        dont you dare say you bare speaking for my freedom or liberty. You dont realize i am on the other side of the coin dont be so brazen as to make any assumption for me. I believe science. When you all drive be sure to drive past the morgue. 31deaths is real. stop by and have a look where you may end up with your myopic self centered blindness

      • saud says:

        “But we are fighting for your freedom and liberty”

        Are you fighting your governments appeal to the Privey Council? Are you fighting for the freedom and liberty of the LGBT community in Bermuda?

      • Bermuda Breeze says:

        The trouble is that you’re destining yourself for eternal social and economic control by restrictions. That may sound apocalyptic, but what alternative are you suggesting?

    • sandgrownan says:

      And they need to be careful with whom they mix. On the FB page there are only a few posts, but one form a dude reposting something from WND. Now, WND is a well known right-wing media outlet peddling the worst of the extreme.

      I took a look at his profile – it’s climate change denial, birtherism, more recently the “US election was stolen”, Limbaugh talking points.. full on RW conspiracy stupidity.

      This is the world where Bermudians now reside.

      • saud says:

        The majority of Bermudians are ‘right wing’. They’re selfish, hate filled people who rally against things that don’t affect them, like same sex marriage, and vaccines.
        The level education in Bermuda is pathetic, as evidenced by 20 years of a corrupt, racist and homophobic government.

  8. MADDOG says:

    Sorry, can someone clarify, freedom from what? Choice not to get the vaccine? No curfew? no wearing masks? Don’t get it if you don’t want to, it’s your personal choice but government have said we WILL HAVE RULES….WE WILL HAVE CURFEW and WE WILL WEAR MASKS to protect our community and help to mitigate draining our limited on island medical resources….no different than having rules of the road and a speed limit…to protect EVERYONE and keep people ALIVE ….rules are here to protect us and unfortunately we need them in place as not everyone out there is SENSIBLE and LOGICAL….clearly!

  9. MADDOG says:

    Just take a look at BBC today and the footage on the crisis in India…that is why we have curfews, wear masks and the government want us to get vaccinated. If it is not clear enough for you after viewing that coverage….then you are really a first class IDIOT.

    • Edu says:

      The footage where they show images and videos from a different incident last year? Crisis being that deaths in india are pretty much the same as they always have been @ 25,000 per day? overun hospitals that have always been overrun and with a poor healthcare system? burning bodies which is a Hindu religious practise? Don’t know who’s the idiot by beleiving the BBC of all media sources, a group that has historically spewed one sided stories, and harboured paedophiles.

    • Truthpromoter says:

      Yea Just put it on Tv and you’ll believe anything…Crisis actors are real but you don’t know nothing! Pick up a book

  10. campervan says:

    So I try to minimise my use of motorised transport by cycling and walking whenever and wherever possible. Its good for the environment as well as my and everyone else’s health. Yet you, once again, choose to clog up the roads with a cacophony of noise, diesel fumes and pollution.
    That is not New Age, Rastafarian, yogi, alternative, or age of aquarius. What it is, is lazy, thoughtless, selfish and unimaginative.
    You just lost my last ounce of sympathy.

  11. Ringmaster says:

    Probably a good time to check the vehicles are licensed and insured. Followed a bike yesterday ridden by an lady with fancy epaulets indicating a Government official. License tag expired October 2020.

  12. Craig says:

    Good adternoon,

    I find it totally ludacris that some here will attempt to make vile comments. This is about freedom and democracy and be question it. People have a right to challenge decisions made by any government, whether you agree or not. Covid is real and nobody in this organization disputes that, if you lost a love one it is tragic, but please donot try to diminish the movement. You can be adult and agree to disagree. Bernuda full of people want to criticise and do nothing but here you have people who take a stand based on the constitution and you make stupid comment. Read about covid and ask yourself questions. It would appear the sheep mentality has begun to take full effect. MASS MEDIA IS BEGINNING TO DISTORT CRITICAL THINKING. SEEK YOU FIRST TO UNDERSTAND AND THEN YOU MAYBE UNDERSTOOD.

    • sandgrownan says:

      Freedom from what?

    • vex asf says:

      All of that and NOT ONE SOLUTION or viable option to what the sheep ooops I mean the protestors are protesting.

      • Viable solution says:

        How about requiring quarantine at home with electronic monitoring for unvaccinated travelers, instead of two weeks and a several thousand dollar hotel hill. We already have the technology in place to implement this immediately.

        How about the quarantine loophole for parents returning from dropping their kids at school abroad? Notably the kids don’t get exemptions when they return, only the parents. So when parents come back with kids at end of the term/year, the kids have to quarantine in a hotel but parents are exempt?

        How about the fact that the vaccination hotline was today unable to answer the simple question of what vaccine they would administer if I show up to the college tomorrow? If they don’t know then who on this island should be able to give this advice to the public?

        How about the prohibition on tying two boats together, when there is no law preventing people from mingling on the same boat as long as under the gathering limits of 10?

        How about the boat curfew of 8pm versus regular curfew, can anyone provide evidence that covid spreads more outdoors on the water in the fresh air after 8pm while staying in my household bubble than it does on the packed porch of a front street bar at the same time?

        Happy to provide more examples if you like. But I suspect nobody here can provide any scientific evidence that these type of laws make sense. Of course covid regulations are necessary and have saved lives. But some seem plainly unnecessary.

        • sandgrownan says:

          Actually, the do make sense. Over 75% of cases in Bermuda are classed as “community spread.”

          And it’s people having “sets” be it on the water or at home – that mass mixing is the issue. THat’s why curfew is the most effective policy.

          And of course, it’s required in Bermuda because there appears to be a movement of faux outrage and anti-vax sentiment.

          So, behave like children, get treated like children.

  13. Proud Bermudian says:

    I really wish those who are calling names would STOP! Calling Bermudians and/or those who have an opposing opinion dumb,ignorant,selfish,muppets, idiots,childish,pathetic,stupid,etc. really tells a lot about YOU, and I am assuming all the above respondents are adults!! Be an example to the young people!

    • sandgrownan says:

      I am. I’m listening to sound medical advice and I’m also protecting those in the community who might be at increased risk.

      What I’m faced with, is a bunch of irresponsible people who are likening a governments response to a very real public health crisis by referring to it as some sort of apartheid.

      Never mind all of the conspiracy theorists.

      So yeah. They’re dumb, ignorant and selfish.

      • SandgrownanIsASheep says:

        Lol @ sound medical advice. You really aren’t protecting anyone, you are insulting ppl who disagree with you online. Meh

        Its your choice to take the vaccine, and others choose not to, that doesnt make them dumb, ignorant, and selfish, or a conspiracy theorist, it makes YOU a rude a$$hole.
        GFY

        • sandgrownan says:

          We all know the considered medical consensus around vaccines, masks, quarantine, and curfew. We know about the history of vaccines, and there’s plenty of good factual information about COIVD-19 available.

          IF you are hell-bent on looking for a reason not to follow any of the advice, knock yourself out. The internet is full of garbage and conspiracy. But if you do that, and you put me and my loved ones at risk because of your stupidity, then don’t get upset when I point out that you are dumb, ignorant and selfish.

          And frankly, I don’t care if you are offended. I’m way past tolerating ignorance and I’m going to continue to call it out whenever I see it.

          • SandgrownanIsIgnorant says:

            So you have low confidence in this experimental mRNA vaccination protecting you against Covid then? How would I put you or your loved ones at risk?

            AND I didnt say I dont follow ANY of the advice. If I am sick I will stay home, I mask where required. That is sufficient.

            And frankly, I dont care if you are offended. I’m also way past tolerating ignorance and I’m going to continue to call it out whenever I see it too. You are the ignorant one.

            • sandgrownan says:

              Not at all, quite the opposite in fact.

              The reality is that the COVID-19 virus is highly contagious, and for the vaccine to be most effective, it requires a significant % of the population to be vaccinated, and until that happens it requires everyone to behave.

              Those that don’t believe that, or don’t want to do that, need to be called out for their selfishness.

    • saud says:

      But, you’re ignorant, selfish and hateful, nothing wrong with being called out for your actions.

  14. MADDOG says:

    Craig, I really do get the freedom and democracy piece, but please view the BBC footage from India. We all have to make sacrifices that we might not necessarily like or support to help prevent that same situation from happening here. Ask someone in India how they are feeling right about now about following regulations and getting vaccinations…and if you still don’t get it after that, well, what else can be said?

  15. 1 way ticket says:

    i would like invite each participant to go to india,brazil and stay there for awhile have your little petulant rally there

  16. Concerned Resident says:

    I am always amazed how people protest just to get attention and be bandwagonnist rather than for actual pressing issues !!….
    No one protest the high cost of living in Bermuda, the rising food cost , the increase in Belco bills, the cost of rent ,the outdated school system…..no protest for these silent killers in Bermuda….but rules put in place for your own safety and to avoid overwhelming a very fragile healthcare system, for that you are protesting !! I have never seen a more delusional , entitled and misguided country as Bermuda ….if Bermuda were not a British Colony , you would have long ceased to exist…..you are so delusional and out of touch with reality, with your false sense of security and Value… .I pray when your true wake up call comes and you are doused with a full dose of reality you can handle it….
