“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,” Whitmer claimed. “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.” Indeed, they aren’t even representative of the protesters. Confederate flags and swastikas at right-leaning protests are always leftist plants to discredit patriots.
“The fact of the matter is, we’re in a global pandemic,” she added. “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.”
The coronavirus hasn’t put 30 million people into unemployment — petty totalitarians like Whitmer have.
