On Friday, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, blasted demonstrators who gathered in front of the Michigan Statehouse to protest Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s decision to extend her stay-at-home order that is destroying the State’s economy. Clinton tweeted; “”Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism. It cannot be tolerated.”
While obvious, it needs to be noted that these protesters did not “storm the capital” bent on an overthrow. They were peacefully exercising their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms and were completely within the laws of Michigan to open carry or they would have been arrested. During a time when liberal governors like Whitmer are shredding the First, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the Bill of Rights with unconstitutional lock-downs, some protesters may choose to demonstrate that the Constitution matters and that they are not giving up their rights.
Even the medical community of Michigan has had enough of Gov “it’s not a request, it’s an order”. While Gov. Whitmer continues fighting to destroy a 77 year old barber who continues to cut hair in his Owosso shop, defying her orders, a group of medical professionals and one patient has filed a lawsuit against her claiming that; “Ms. Whitmer’s “drastic, unprecedented [and] unilateral executive actions” to cease economic activity that her office deemed nonessential were based on “grossly inaccurate” models that no longer apply and therefore should be lifted”.
It is time to end this madness but if you look at the states that remain locked down, all are run by progressive liberals who seem to care more about trashing the economy to hurt President Trump than they are about the lives and livelihoods of the citizens they swore an oath to protect. Oh…, and one other thing. That oath also included a pledge to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
