“This whole COVID-19 app ain’t nothing but a way for the government to know your whereabouts at any time, and that’s just the first step,” McCallen explained in a post on Facebook, the world’s largest social media company, that he wrote from his iPhone which he carries with him 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“If Big Brother thinks I’m going to stand around and let them track and control my life, they’ve got another thing coming. This is all about control and violating civil liberties, and you’re completely asleep if you can’t see that.”
McCallen concluded his post by voicing his support for Rep. Amanda Chase (R-Chesterfield) in the next gubernatorial election, stating that he planned to vote for her as he is a registered voter, which means the electoral system has his personal information on file.
