“We won’t be bullied, we won’t be harassed … We’re not going away until Gov. Whitmer resigns from office, gets impeached gets recalled — that’s what we want. We want Michigan open.”
Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer faces more protests in Lansing.
Almost 200 people gathered in the rain to protest that woman in Michigan’s extreme lockdown orders in response to the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.
By the way, you won’t hear this part from the MSM. One person brought a doll with a noose and an ax. A fight broke up because the other people found it disgusting. The organizers called this man’s display “hate speech.”
“The government is not my mother. Never has been. I’ve been in business longer than they’ve been alive.”
Michiganders have had enough of Democrat Gretchen Whitmer’s nanny state

We are not the “rednecks” the media portray us to be, said an organizer of Lansing protest against Michigan’s coronavirus-prompted stay-home orders told the crowd.
“We’re still showing up, we’re not going away,” ‚34-year-old Wendy Darling of Ann Arbor, who identified herself as the founder of Michigan United for Liberty, the group behind the rally. “We won’t be bullied, we won’t be harassed … We’re not going away until Gov. Whitmer resigns from office, gets impeached gets recalled — that’s what we want. We want Michigan open.”
One person held a sign that said, “Whitmer is the virus.”
Mike Gibson told MLive.com that “he would have been standing in the same spot had former Gov. Rick Snyder” issued the same lockdown restrictions:
“The Constitution is meant to put shackles on government,” he said. “That is an American concept. It shouldn’t matter what party you belong to.”
He’s not expecting the rally to impact Whitmer’s decision making.
Whitmer “will most likely extend everything,” Gibson said. “That was her intent from the beginning. I don’t think this will stop or dissuade her.”
He equated his attendance to a 150-pound woman fighting off a 300-pound assailant in a back alley.
“The 150-pound woman doesn’t just lay there and get beat; she needs to defend herself,” he said. “That’s pretty much the extent of it, for why you have to speak up. Because you have illegal actions from a politician that violate natural law.”
We’re the 150-pound woman and the assailant is the government, Gibson said.
