Woman’s anti-mask ‘All I Want For Christmas’ sparks anger

It’s Maria Karen.

A California woman raised eyebrows for offering her views against COVID-19 safety measures, despite Omicron’s rapid spread, in a viral song set for Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” earlier this month.

The woman attended the San Diego County Board of Supervisors meeting on December 7 where she gave the odd performance during the “COVID-19 Response Update” portion of the rally.

In a now-circulating video of a local resident’s performance at a county meeting, she wears a Santa hat and introduces herself only as “Bridget – Let’s End This Emergency” before playing an instrumental version of Carrie’s Christmas song on her phone to accompany her singing.

“I don’t want much for Christmas, just body independence,” she sings in her whimsical tale of the holiday pop classic.

“I don’t care about the variants, because of the natural immunity,” she continues. I just want my freedom now, the constitution will show us how. Make my dreams come true, stop the emergency and admit early treatment too.”

Wearing a Santa hat, the woman introduces herself as “Bridget – Let’s End This Emergency” before playing an instrumental version of Carrie’s Christmas song on her phone for the song.

According to the minutes of the meeting, which included a list of speakers, her name is Bridget Dolcas, who is described as “a passionate and energetic member of the Southern California musical community,” according to Pacific Symphony, where she serves as senior violinist. According to Symphony’s website, members of the public are required to provide proof of complete vaccination against COVID-19 and to wear masks.

The Post has reached out to Pacific Symphony for comment.

In her song, she sets out to list a variety of contested treatment methods for the coronavirus, including the deworming drug ivermectin — which has been found to cause fatal kidney failure in some individuals and is not recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of COVID — as well as Hydroxychloroquine, which studies have found does not stop the spread of COVID, despite former President Trump’s prescription for it.

“Ivermectin isn’t just horse paste and hydroxychloroquine and vitamin C and vitamin D, then zinc in quercetin,” says the woman, holding her hat in one hand and her phone in the other.

“I won’t wear a useless mask, I don’t need to stay home, my kids have to go to school, we don’t need to be alone,” she said, ending with her acclimatization to the chorus and non-sung, “Let’s have a happy holiday everyone.”

The recording of the meeting is currently available on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors’ YouTube channel, with the ability to be widely edited on several memes accounts.

In one such edit, commentators mocked Bridget, calling her Karen – or as one commenter_itsmido_ put it succinctly, “Maria Karen”.

Another added, “I’m mad at you for making me listen to that.”
