Here’s The Story Behind Woke Oregon Official Who Created Mask Exemption For POC

(Tea Party 247) – Oregon is a hot mess and as PJ Media put it “has given us perhaps the most 2020 thing of 2020” and how true that is. You have likely heard about the most absurd facemask exemption in the country coming out of Lincoln County, Oregon. If not, Governor Kate Brown ordered seven counties in her state to mandate the wearing of facemasks for all people who visit places open to the public, as part of coronavirus scamdemic measures.

Lincoln County took it upon themselves to be extra woke and enlightened and decided to exempt people of color from wearing the mask because, you know, equality?

The exemption read, “People of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public.” So, did Lincoln County just affirm racial biases? Sounds like it.

However, the fun doesn’t stop there. It turns out that the county commissioner who created the exemption is a trans activist named “Claire” Hall (formerly known as Bill Hall) who reportedly said while completing his transition to a woman was, “I couldn’t wear this mask one more day.” Oh, the irony!

Unfortunately, for Hall, he is still man and the county received so much backlash over the exemption, they had to cancel it. Ouch.

Commissioner “Claire” Hall told the press:

Initially, a Lincoln County commissioner said the board felt the exemption was the right thing to do due to concerns of racial profiling. It was the of the [sic] first counties in the US to exempt people of color from wearing masks to prevent racial profiling.

According to guidance from the Oregon Health Authority, businesses should take into account that requiring people to wear face coverings impacts everyone differently, including people of color who may have heightened concerns about racial profiling.

Commissioner Claire Hall says the county’s received a lot of feedback on both sides of the issue.

“Certainly, we’ve got a lot of very angry white people saying we’re out of our minds and worse,” Hall said. “I’d say our office has heard from at least a dozen people of color. You know one of them said aren’t you aware that the virus disproportionately impacts communities of color? And I said oh yeah absolutely. But also the same people saying that you know they fear an unintended consequence of a well-intentioned policy. Let’s say a person of color comes into our courthouse and chooses not to wear a face covering, they’re actually more likely to be harassed and profiled than if they don’t.”

Hall just talked himself into circles like a typical liberal.

Hall went through a very public “transition” apparently. After serving as County Commissioner as Bill Hall since 2004, he decided to take off his “mask” and become a woman in 2018, right about the time it became vogue to do so.

Oregon Live ran a piece describing his transition so the public could be part of this modern, 21st century feel-good story:

Bill Hall sat in a beauty salon near Portland and ordered the full work-up: beard cover, foundation, eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick in a bold pink. And for the final touch, a short auburn wig coaxed over his own graying brown hair.

Hall spun around to face the mirror. He saw Claire for the first time.

An incredible feeling of rightness settled in, a kind of peace that had eluded the Lincoln County commissioner for many of his 58 years. It was so much more than the surface trappings.

“This is what I expected to see looking back at me my entire life,” he thought, “and now it is finally real.”

This is the man in charge of making decisions that impact the lives of the people living in Lincoln County.


  1. This idiot just joined a group that has a 65% SUICIDE rate when they FINALLY figure out that cutting off their equipment DOES NOT MAKE THEM HAPPY, go figure! There are TWO, count em, TWO genders, everything ELSE is MENTAL ILLNESS that severely needs TREATMENT, NOT surgery, SAD!

  2. Please don’t judge people by their looks. I know I can’t as I’m not a tall built stud by any chance of the imagination.

    We must judge people on their conduct and words. It seems that man is a woke progressive bigot. But the result of his political correctness would put people at risk.

    Also remember, we have a God who is forgiving for those who repent and seek Him.

  3. Wow! What can be said but what a bunch of aholes. Oregon must not have a thinking person left. Lets ditch Oregon when we ditch California. I think Denmark didn’t want to sell Trump Greenland but maybe they would trade it for California with a bonus of Washington and Oregon because what a useless bunch of trash they have become.
    But they may not be as bad as the guys who leave the four only other comments in this forum that are, “my neighbor or aunt or step-mother makes umpteen bazillion dollars a week working from their home on their computer. What a bunch of s__t.

    • Are you that handsome? I know I’m not. So I don’t criticize people on their looks, Rather I judge them by their conduct and words. This guy is not operating on all cylinders.

      Rather, he is a woke bigot, judging people by race and likely by moral beliefs. He’s willing to expose people to disease in the name of political correctness.

  4. so this person bill hall wants to infect his community because …
    hope somebody sneezes on him…he is or she is a Person with a killing agenda.

  5. The people of lincoln county voted to hire Bill Hall a male. They did not vote to hire Clair Hall. She did not run for county commissioner. She should br removed from office and a new election held for County Commissioner. Since Bill no longer exists, Lincoln County does not have. Commissioner. This Clair, who is a new person has no power to do anything and should be escorted out of the office.

  6. LOL Those fools missed the real humor! By exempting the POC from wearing the masks they set them up to catch the virus and die! An end with a mean, mean intention! Looks like Claire is a true fairy princess living in the pretty woods of Oregon! Of course they all have their neighbors to keep them company. You know, the sasquatches! The land of the loons.

  7. Well, it looks like all those “woke” progressives have struck the ignorance bonanza once more! They always have an answer and/or a solution to every problem/issue, and that their answers/solutions are invariably ILL-
    CONSIDERED, HYPOCRITICAL, and WRONG! As for the transgender thing, there are two things that won’t change: (1) birth certificates, and
    (2) chromosomes. Happens every time!

    • Elite?

      Perhaps among terds. Nothing else. When will he get “real” and get a “heart transition??”

  8. Who would take counsel from someone who has confusion about his gender?? Sorry, stability is important in making decisions for other’s behavior! This !?!?!? person is not someone I would ever trust with my life!

  9. This nonsense endangers the health of those not wearing masks. Does the dem/socialist party only recruit idiots?

  10. It MUST be in the WATER or the FOOD . . . There CAN’T be any OTHER excuse for these LAME BRAINED POLICIES! One Wary Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  11. Backlash was cause of cancelling the commission’s lamebrain order. Apparently correct thinking is missing in some areas of local governance. In Oregon there seems to be a rash of such ignorant behavior.

    • …I called and inquired as a Free Lance Writer… how this passes EEO Guidelines…and no one would answer me. I hope someone sues them just over the attempt to do it…
