Michigan Gov. Whitmer: Lockdown protests are ’racist and misogynistic’

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday that the lockdown protests are ’racist and misogynistic’ and called on those with a platform to discourage the demonstrators. ’...it’s certainly not an exercise of democratic principles... This is calls to violence. This is racist and misogynistic,’ Whitmer said, and warned that the protests could lengthen the state’s social distancing restrictions.

I don't understand the protest with guns...that is the 1 thing I think makes this relevant bc they have to constantly bring up oh they had guns...I get the swastikas were aimed towards her or the establishment but that's been completely flipped on the protestors. It's getting to the point where it seems she's indirectly saying watch how long I can keep this going If you don't fall in line.

Of course, just brand your opposition as evil, genius. A white supremacist rally flew swastikas, the stars and bars, and gadsden flags at the same time? I guess that means they all mean the same thing, every time they're used! If only socialists applied their own standards to themselves, the self described Union of Soviet Socialist republics and it's 30,000,000 civilians killed outside of war, and the PRC's Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and it's 40,000,000 murdered, well using the left's logic the Democratic party has members that call themselves socialists, and let's not forget that the definition of democracy can differ, ie "Peoples Republic of China" and "Democratic People's Republic of Korea," so by this point using their logic Democrat should mean democidal totalitarian. Heck, I know narrative and account given historians that project their re writing of history by calling actual history historical revisionism when it conflicts with their ideology like to say National Socialism wasn't socialism, but when we consider that the non Marxian racial socialism viewed jews as the banking financiers of jewish bolshevism in the USSR, what hitler called "the jewish state," and given that Hitler actually abolished private party (as a matter of law) in the German constitution in 1933 (not to be confused with personal property, as distinguished by Kropotkin,) "privatized" industry by placing it under the direction of party men whilst nominally leaving it owned by it's original owners (bc THAT'S capitalism apparently) all bc as Hitler said "I am a socialist... I am socializing the German people themselves, rendering businesses in the common good of the whole of the volk, creating a classless society." That's the best I can translate German, anyways. Not too different from Mussolini inventing the term totalitarian to describe fascist control of the economy, "nothing outside the state, everything within the state, nothing against the state," which incidentally means leftists claiming nazism wasn't socialism are definitonally stating the Hitler wasn't a totalitarian, but again, by the good governor's logic, since her party has members which are self proclaimed socialists and Hitler was a socialist, a headline like "Govenor echoes fascist and Nazi rhetoric'' would be fine. Actually, wait, it does. How 'bout that huh?

I've noticed that very many of these comments go straight from denying that it's sexist... to a sex based insult.

Breaking news: Georgia is on the brink of running out of ICU beds. Currently 80% are in use. Georgia was one of the first states to lift restrictions and reopen. Remember that running out of ICU beds keeps your sick Mom or Dad whos having a heart attack from having a bed.

Just because people desire to go back to their lives -- back to work and provide for their families does NOT equate to hating racial groups of people and a hatred of women. Please consult your dictionary before speaking you failure of a human being.
