In what should be expected, we now are faced with the Democrats, both in the Michigan governor’s house and state legislators who are creating a fiction how protestors against stripping away of rights as being racially biased.
In In the Michigan interview with CNN, she came out and accused the protests of being racially motivated, claimed there were swastikas and confederate flags in the rally. Yet, after speaking with people there and looking at video’s, there is not a shred of evidence this ever happened.
Debbie Dingell was the one that started this, now the narrative is that this was widespread, it wasn’t, if there were any cases of this there is no photographic evidence of this, yet the narrative is continuing. This is typical, when a Democrat can’t argue with the law, they argue that they somehow are victims.
“What happened yesterday was inexcusable,” Dingell (D-Mich.) told MSNBC. “People did not have masks. They didn’t have gloves. They did not distance themselves. They had Confederate flags, swastikas. They blocked an ambulance trying to get to a hospital.”
Amazing, I looked over for past posts from Dingell, for some odd reason when Antifa and Black Lives Matter did this she did not say one word, is this another case of it is not racist when the people doing the same thing are Far-left actors or racist themselves?
Not willing to be left out Gov. Whitmer echoed what was said.
Whitmer said, “We know that people are not all happy about having to take the stay-at-home posture, and you know what, I’m not either. The fact of the matter is we have to listen to epidemiologists and public health experts. Displays like the one we saw at the state capitol are not representative of who we are. There were swastikas, Confederate flags, nooses, people with assault rifles. That’s a small group of people. When you think about the fact that this is a state of almost 10 million people, the vast majority of whom are doing the right thing, that’s why we’ve seen our curve gets pushed down. We’ve saved lives in the process. We have to keep listening to the epidemiologists and experts and not listen to the partisan rhetoric, or these political rallies or tweets, for that matter. We have to keep doing the next right thing.”
She added, “Some of the outrageousnesses of what happened at our capitol this week, you know, depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country. The Confederate flags and nooses, the swastikas, the, you know, behavior that you’ve seen in all of the clips, is not representative of who we are in Michigan. The fact of the matter is, I mean, we’re in a global pandemic. This isn’t something we just negotiate ourselves out of, as a political matter. This is a public health crisis that’s taken the lives of almost 70,000 Americans, has put 30 million people into unemployment.”
The press and the Democrats are hell-bent on making this into a radical racially-biased protest, it had nothing to do with this. Instead, it was about a Democrat governor who thinks she, in the name of the public good, has the legal authority to strip rights away from citizens, to suspend constitutional rights, this is what the people are fighting against.
This is the modus operandi of the left; their playbook says when they are unable to argue over the stripping of rights, they need to blame everything on racism, in the process try to smear people who are upset over stripping of rights as only being upset due to their racist nature.
As a person of Jewish blood I find this deeply offensive, I have seen how the left has played out the term racism to batter in laws, they did so until the whole term lost the stigma that used to be attached to it, now they are trying to do this with antisemitism, this needs to stop, I don’t want the same thing done with this term.
