Anti-lockdown protests around the country are taking an increasingly hostile tone, with some demonstrators calling for Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates to be jailed, and some even using swastikas on signs to compare them to Nazis.

“Imprison Gates Fauci and Newsom For Crimes against HUMANITY,” one woman’s sign read during a rally in California Friday, with swastikas around Gates’ name.

“This is not Nazi Germany! No testing, No tracing, No tracking, No spying, No snitching, No mask, Liberty Not Tyranny,” another woman’s sign read.

During a rally in Boston, Massachusetts Monday, there were more anti-Gates and anti-Fauci signs too.

“Arrest Bill Gates!” one woman’s sign read.

“Lock Up Fauci Gates For Crimes Against Humanity,” one man’s sign read.


“Dr. Fauci are you are criminal,” one man’s sign said.


Inflammatory signs have been present nationwide. In Michigan, one of the first demonstrations that got significant attention, one woman held a sign reading “Heil Witmer” with a swastika-esque symbol on it.

President Donald Trump showed support to armed Michigan protesters last week, calling them “very good people.”

“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry,” Trump said in a tweet.

“They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.”
