Watch This Stand-Off, In Denver, Between A Protester And Healthcare Worker

The weekend has seen a spate of anti-lockdown protests across the United States in Ohio, Michigan and Colorado.

The images soon went viral on social media with many hailing the nurses for the "bada***y" and bravado. We offer twenty examples below - ten representing those who see participants as patriots, and ten expressing the opinion that they're complete morons.

One protestor in particular did not like it. A woman can be seen brandishing a "Land of the Free" poster at the worker while screaming at him and raising her fists from inside her vehicle.

Alexis said she has been in self-quarantine since Sunday after showing cold symptoms while home.

"Land of the free".

"Go to China if you want communism", the woman in the auto is heard screaming at one point. "Now open up and go to work".

One of the most notable videos to appear online was a nurse in scrubs blocking the truck of a woman protesting the lockdown. Photographs show protestors in Maga hats and while some are wearing masks, social distancing protocol seems to have been largely ignored.

Police were also on the scene monitoring the demonstration, which mirrored similar protests that have been taking case in states throughout the U.S., with the backing of President Donald Trump, who called participants "very reasonable people" at a White House briefing on Friday. Others voiced fears about businesses closing and the impact of a recession on the livelihoods of local employees. The lockdown, however, has caused a severe economic crisis in the country, with over 22 million Americans filing for unemployment benefits in the past four weeks.
