(Tea Party PAC) – Over the last several months, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has made headlines for crafting some of the most draconian measures in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in the nation. She attempted to control what kind of products people could buy, threw temper tantrums when protesters stepped out against her tyranny and extending the orders to keep everything closed down just for spite.
Then, of course, there was the incident involving her hubby trying to use her name and influence to try and get ahead of folks in a boat line. As if that’s not bad enough, Whitmer is now violating her own order by taking part in a protest march related to the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers, an incident that has sparked violent riots across America.
Now think about that for just a moment. Whitmer threw a fit over patriots gathering to demand she open the state’s economy, telling them how awful they were for being selfish and getting together in a group, knowing it could spread the virus. And yet, here she is, doing that for which she condemned others, simply because this particular cause lines up with her belief system.
The brazen display of hypocrisy is appalling.

Here’s more from BizPacReview:
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who recently extended her coronavirus-related stay-at-home order until mid-June, joined scores of demonstrators Thursday evening in Detroit to march in protest of the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd at the hands of police.
Whitmer and other leaders including Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan traveled to the Highland Park area and joined demonstrators who marched down Woodward with religious leaders demanding equality for people of color.
“As I talk to my friends in the black community, exhaustion is the predominant word used. And it’s understandable. I could not imagine being a mother of children of color and worry every time they leave the house,” Whitmer told reporters, according to FOX2.
After seven straight days of demonstrations and some rioting, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist said the message has been the same.
“We don’t have another moment to waste. We do not have a step to waste and when our brothers and sisters they can’t breathe, we do not have a breath to waste either,” he said.
As for Whitmer, on May 22 she extended her existing stay-at-home order until June 19, claiming that it was necessary to continue ‘bending the curve’ of the pandemic.
There have been rumors for a while now that Whitmer is on a short list of possible vice president candidates for Joe Biden. If that’s true, Biden might want to consider scratching her name off the list. Otherwise, he might be guaranteed a loss come November. Folks of all walks of life are unhappy with how Whitmer has handled the pandemic. Seems like a no brainer to choose someone else.
In addition to the blatant hypocrisy, there are additional differences between the anti-lockdown protests and those involving the death of Floyd.
On Thursday reports noted that the Committee to Protect Medicare and Affordable Care, under the direction of former Democratic congressional candidate Dr. Rob Davidson, used an app called VoteMap to track the cellphones of about 400 lockdown protesters, allegedly to ‘track the spread’ of COVID-19.
The group did no similar tracking of Floyd demonstrators, however.
Again, this is blatant hypocrisy. It seems the left is caring less and less about putting this sort of insanity on public display, apparently confident that they have the majority of folks in the country brainwashed enough to ignore all of this in favor of opposing President Trump.
The bottom line is, they are arrogantly assuming that we all hate the president. We don’t. And we’ll let her and other Democratic Party goons know as much come November.
