Whitmer: Protests ‘Force Us to Stay’ in Lockdown Mode Longer

April 23, 2020

Thursday on MSNBC, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer warned that the “reopen” protests in her state could only serve to prolong the state’s coronavirus lockdown.

“We have a uniquely tough problem and it requires a uniquely tough solution,” Whitmer stated. “And that’s what we’ve done. And certainly, there are people who are dissenting my orders, just like there are people dissenting orders in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado, all across the country. That’s OK. I respect people’s ability and right to dissent.” No, she doesn’t.

“But what we need to make sure every one of us does is observe the CDC best practices so we are not unwittingly spreading COVID-19,” Whitmer continued. “The worst irony that could come about from these demonstrations is that they force us to stay in this posture longer than — longer than we’re already planning to. It’s the last thing any of us wants.”

Actually it’s not. The last thing petty Democrat tyrants like Whitmer want is to relinquish the power they have seized thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
