Gov. Gretchen Whitmer went to extreme lengths to close her state’s economy.
Until finally her orders got decimated by one humble worker.
A judge shut down a top Biden vice president pick with one stinging defeat.
The rapid rate at which Democrats shed their social distancing measures shows that their concern never really was about stopping the infection.
It seems odd that any Democrats think they have a leg to stand on when it comes to coronavirus restrictions.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that people gathering together to worship was different than protesting and churches wouldn’t be allowed to resume.
If America was in the middle of a truly dangerous outbreak, the Democratic governors would have tried to stop the large protests, instead of joining in.
When people were protesting her stay-at-home orders, Whitmer was deeply concerned.
“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 said.
That was because people gathered at the Michigan Capitol in Lansing, most of whom were socially distancing.
However, Gretchen Whitmer walked shoulder-to-shoulder in the front line of a protest following the death of George Floyd.
“The governor took precautions for engaging in an outdoor activity, including wearing a mask even though it is not required outdoors under the order,” said Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown.
Brown said the protest didn’t violate Whitmer’s order because it states, “Nothing in this order shall be taken to abridge protections guaranteed by the state or federal constitution.”
This is the first time in recent months that Democrats have seemed to care about the Constitution.
The right to freely gather is protected in the Constitution.
Yet it took a court to stop Whitmer in her efforts to stop 77-year-old barber Karl Manke from opening up his barber shop.
“It is no longer appropriate for Plaintiff to seek to compel Defendant to comply with a nonexistent injunction,” Shiawassee County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart ordered.
Attorney General Dana Nessel had been looking to collect a daily fine of $7,500 for “the unlawful operation of his barber shop on June 1, 2020.”
“Whitmer’s Michigan Department of Health and Human Services was seeking a $5,000 penalty.” Breitbart noted.
However, there is still one way for Whitmer still to get Manke to close his barber shop.
Manke promises to close his doors if Whitmer chooses to resign.
“I don’t have any intentions of being bullied. I really don’t mind her being governor, but when (Whitmer) starts this ruling stuff, then I take exception to that,” Manke said.
“It’s not part of our Constitution. It shows her immaturity as a leader, not being able to govern, instead having to rely on police state tactics in order to get her agenda taken care of,” Manke continued.
Luckily, Whitmer’s immaturity was stopped by the justice system.
