Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) accused Michigan protesters last week of depicting “some of the worst racism” in America’s history.
According to the Michigan governor, those protesting her coronavirus measures had “swastikas, Confederate flags, nooses.”
Whitmer said, “We know that people are not all happy about having to take the stay-at-home posture, and you know what, I’m not either. The fact of the matter is we have to listen to epidemiologists and public health experts. Displays like the one we saw at the state capitol are not representative of who we are. There were swastikas, Confederate flags, nooses, people with assault rifles. That’s a small group of people. When you think about the fact that this is a state of almost 10 million people, the vast majority of whom are doing the right thing, that’s why we’ve seen our curve gets pushed down. We’ve saved lives in the process. We have to keep listening to the epidemiologists and experts and not listen to the partisan rhetoric, or these political rallies or tweets, for that matter. We have to keep doing the next right thing.”
She added, “Some of the outrageousnesses of what happened at our capitol this week, you know, depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country. The Confederate flags and nooses, the swastikas, the, you know, behavior that you’ve seen in all of the clips, is not representative of who we are in Michigan. The fact of the matter is, I mean, we’re in a global pandemic. This isn’t something we just negotiate ourselves out of, as a political matter. This is a public health crisis that’s taken the lives of almost 70,000 Americans, has put 30 million people into unemployment.”
Me Here....My Governor (regrettably) has again shown her total lack of understanding of the state. She is so out of touch with Michiganders. She must think we all live in the tenements of Detroit.
The flag she mentions is a National Guard battle flag for the Northern Army of Virginia. It is a military and not the national flag of the Confederacy. I wish the idiots on the left could get that through their thick heads! But since when do facts matter to them!
She is also clueless about weapons. To her any weapon is an assault weapon. Michigan is a lawful open carry state. I am sure she hates that and those that lawfully exercise their constitutional and lawful right. Were there any shots fired? NO! Does that matter to her? NO! It is just the fact that law abiding citizens know their rights and how to properly follow their rights she hates.
Heck, I think she hates that we have rights than she is or should be powerless to change.
This protest is simply about freedom. Freedoms she has tyrannically taken from us.
She has ordered all Michiganders to wear masks in public. Yet in an e-mail I got from her, she admits that she has no power to do it or enforce it.
To her we are to forget that we have God given rights. We are to be like day one basic training military and blindly do what ever she barks at us. That is tyranny. She is an unconstitutional tyrant.
Us Michiganders will work to recall her as soon as we can. This will be a very uphill battle as her George Soros bought and paid for AG and SoS will do all they can to thwart this to protect her. The Dems in the GOP controlled Senate will protect her in impeachment.
To the Dems, only Dems in Government have rights and power. We The People are to stupidly obey and never question their stupidity!
