Hundreds protest Michigan governor's social distancing order

Source: Associated Press

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Hundreds of flag-waving, honking protesters drove past the Michigan Capitol on Wednesday to show their displeasure with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s orders to keep people at home and businesses locked during the coronavirus outbreak.

As snow fell, others got out of their vehicles and raised signs, one of which read, “Gov. Whitmer We Are Not Prisoners.” Another said, “Michigander Against Gretchens Abuses.”

Hours later, Whitmer shot back, telling reporters that the rally put health at risk.

The “Operation Gridlock” protest was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition. The ripples were widely felt: Traffic was barely moving for miles in some areas of Lansing.

Whitmer said she was “really disappointed” to see protesters close together without masks.

I guess these MAGAts should all be given a Darwin award..

outside their vehicles, ID them & send them each a $1500 ticket for their dangerous stupidity.

14 days in a closed room, with meals slipped under the door.

5. Fine. Get their names and info.

We can use them as an example later not only for how many of them died, but how much all of the survivors spent on intensive medical care.

The only thing we won't know is how many more people they went on to inflict this shit on. But yeah, they want to be hardasses, fine, get them to sign up, let them make themselves known public examples.

27. Totally agree. Get their names from their license plates.

When they turn up at hospitals - and they will - tell them their symptoms are psychosomatic because you can't possibly be sick from a hoax. Then turn them out to make room for people who are genuine victims, not self-made ones.

Don't fall for it media.

I know it's hard for the media to ignore a bunch of racist old white guys carrying guns and bragging about how good their sisters are in bed, but this time... you must ignore it.

Like Donnie Shit for Brains, klieg lights and cameras give it nourishment.

39. Wow!

I'm not impressed. I saw more people than that in my local Kroger yesterday.

Ever notice how they all have to look and dress alike? Fat, big bellies, some sort of Duck Dynasty beard, oh, and white (always) of course and mostly old.

Geez, they're pathetic.

Anything not positive said about his Fuhrer and I'm off to play protester. The media should get picture after pic of these idiots and post them so thinking people can stay a mile away from them.

Why do Trumps most violent MAGOTS look exactly like that guy on the left?
