On April 15, the state of Michigan made national news when a group called Michigan Conservative Coalition led a protest that brought over 10,000 vehicles to the state’s capital city of Lansing, to protest draconian lockdown measures by MI Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D).

Instead of listening to the concerns of her constituents, Michigan’s recently elected governor, who’s on Joe Biden’s shortlist for VP, lashed out at protesters, most of whom remained inside their vehicles, accusing them of spreading coronavirus, and threatening to extend lockdown orders over their irresponsible protest. Whitmer called the people desperate to open their businesses and go back to work, “political.”

“When you see a, you know, a political rally — that’s what it was yesterday — a political rally like that, where people aren’t wearing masks, and they’re in close quarters, and they’re touching one another, you know that that’s precisely what makes this kind of a disease drag out and expose more people,” Whitmer told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow adding, “We might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they were protesting,”

Watch:

VP wannabe, Governor Gretchen Whitmer also recorded a message for protesters, many of whom have destroyed businesses and wreaked havoc across the state. For the violent rioters, and for the peaceful George Floyd protesters, Whitmer took a much different tone.

Here are just a few examples of the “peaceful protests” Governor Whitmer refused to address:

Last night, riots erupted in Lansing, MI, as cars were set on fire, the windows to a Chase Bank were busted out in broad daylight and police were forced to use tear gas on protesters.

Here’s a look at Lansing, MI, last night. Governor Whitmer lives in Lansing but has yet to comment on the violence.

For several days, Michigan’s radical, the far-left governor has remained silent about the threat posed to Michiganders over the spread of coronavirus in one of the states most devastated by the pandemic.

Instead of warning that she would extend her shutdown order for the sixth time, Governor Whitmer, instead, just announced that she’s lifting her most recent lockdown order, effective today.

Suddenly, protesters gathering in large groups are no longer a threat.
