Border Wall Critic Gretchen Whitmer Building 8-Foot Wall Around MI Governor Residence

Border Wall Critic Gretchen Whitmer Building 8-Foot Wall Around MI Governor Residence

“She called President Donald Trump’s border wall ‘costly and ineffective’ in February 2017, nearly a week after suggesting that money for the wall would be better spent elsewhere.”

Democrats are fond of claiming that America doesn’t need Trump’s southern border wall, yet so many of them live behind protective walls.

In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer is currently erecting an eight-foot-high border around her home.

Who is she trying to keep out, her ‘mostly peaceful’ constituents?

Collin Anderson reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

Biden Surrogate Builds Wall, Makes Michigan Taxpayers Pay For It

Michigan Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer’s state-owned residence is getting $1.1 million in security upgrades, including an eight-foot-tall perimeter fence.

Whitmer has long questioned the effectiveness of physical barriers, but is asking Michigan taxpayers to foot the bill for a seven-figure project to keep out uninvited guests. The governor’s office confirmed the renovation on Friday, telling the Detroit News that the wall would help “ensure the safety, security, and protection of any sitting governor and the first family.” The renovation will include an electrified fence that Whitmer claims is necessary because of threats she has received.

Whitmer, a Biden surrogate, has attacked the idea of using barriers to prevent illegal immigration. She called President Donald Trump’s border wall “costly and ineffective” in February 2017, nearly a week after suggesting that money for the wall would be better spent elsewhere.

Democrats: It’s different when we do it.

According to Morgan Phillips of FOX News, a spokesperson for Whitmer said this was routine maintenance:

Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown called the renovations “routine maintenance and upgrades” that were needed to “to ensure the safety, security and protection of any sitting governor and the first family,” according to the Detroit News.

The cost of the upgrades at the Lansing residence, as recommended by Michigan State Police and the state Department of Technology, Management and Budget, is approximately $1.1 million, Brown said. It wasn’t clear how much of the budget would be spent on the perimeter fence.

“As a matter of practice, we’re constantly reviewing security protocols and adjusting as needed,” Shanon Banner, spokeswoman for the Michigan State Police, told the Detroit News. “We don’t comment on specific threats against the governor nor do we provide information about security measures.”

Walls for me, but not for thee.

Think anyone in the liberal media will ask Whitmer about this seeming contradiction?

Don’t hold your breath.

She sees no problem with this, and no hypocrisy. Because she’s better and smarter than you, and her life is more important.

Can we lock her in?

The hypocrisy of the left

is

simply

breath-taking.

Hah! Jokes on her. Walls don’t work.

Well, all I can say is that an 8 foot wall won’t even slow down the zombies, let alone the antifa terrorists.

Actually, having an real wall (as opposed to a chain-link fence) will protect the rioters from the Molotov cocktails and other explosives they will lob over the top. Good luck, whitmer.

    Ever hear of a potato gun, sometimes called a poor man’s mortar? That will get a Molotov cocktail over the wall. How about a ground rod with a cable and clamp attached? That will short the hot fence.

    She isn’t as safe as she thinks. If the zombies want to get in, they’ll figure out a way.
    .

But walls don’t work, right?

Something tells me this woman is going to remain around, undead, for a long time like Pelosi. I just have myself shivers thinking about that.

The wall to protect Whitmer will cost at least $1.1 million dollars — of taxpayers’ money. Certainly, the peasants don’t expect the lords to pay for their own security, do they?

Can’t even get building a wall right, eh Karen? 8 feet won’t do squat against leftist idiot protesters.

“”Walls for me, but not for thee.””

Well, that’s not exactly true. The left is more than happy to put us behind walls – and bars – for any minor transgression against leftist orthodoxy.

It’s only partly a wall. It’s also an electrified fence.
I don’t know about y’all but I couldn’t put an electrified fence around my property in most any locale. It is considered an “attractive nuisance”* and will get me horribly sued if anyone gets hurt from it. But the governor…….

(* I’m sure that’s the wrong term, but I’ve heard it used. It’s similar to setting up a trap in your home to catch B&E folks. If you hurt someone, you’re going down.)

    The term you’re looking for is “mantrap”. An attractive nuisance is something like an unfenced swimming pool, that actually attracts trespassers and causes them to come and drown.

    But as far as I know non-lethal electrified fences, e.g. with pulse regulators, are legal in most places.

    Electrified fences work OK for animals, but they would be ineffective against an Antifa mob. Any farmer knows that you can clip a grounded wire to an electrified fence and short it out so you can touch it and not get shocked.

    Any Antifa member would just bring a wire with two alligator clips, ground one to a metal fence post (or drive a metal rod into the dirt and clip to it), and then clip the other end to the electrified conductor.

    Alternatively, you could just wear leather gloves over rubber gloves (or lineman’s gloves) and manually grab the electric wire and wrap it around a fence post.

    Electrified fences work in prison camps because anyone trying to ground it would be shot. As we know, Antifa members in Democrat-run places wouldn’t even get charged with a crime for destroying the electric fence or the entire governor’s mansion.

As a friend put it, “is it concealment or cover? Concealment doesn’t stop bullitz.”

So Wretched Gretchen is going all Lori Lightfoot? Protection for me, but not for thee! That’s the ticket Gretchen. Now if you could just lock her inside those walls so she couldn’t get to the governor’s office, Michigan might be better off.

The People’s Republic of Michigan moves to protect Big Sister after undercover operatives discover white supremacist Emmanual Goldtsein has targetted her. Big Sister reluctantly agreed to this move.

Y’all can’t see she is like those Stepford wives?? Yes, I am that old.

Oz has sent a young girl to collect her broom.

Are you Mi voters good with your racist bigoted Fuhrer?

Next they’ll be telling us Whitmer travels to San Francisco to have her hair done…

Oh the irony.
Bet you can’t find a Democrat who wants to build the border wall

It was critical for Whitmer to build her wall. After killing so many grandparents, she was worried that many of the kids and grandkids might get angry.

Google news and Bing news for ‘”Gretchen Whitmer” fence’ are quite different.

The difference is Trump wants to keep illegals out, and that’s r-r-r-racist! Whitmer by contrast seems to hold the standard Democrat position – keep Americans out. I mean after all who wants Americans around? Just think how much better America would be if Americans couldn’t vote and instead only illegals got to choose the government instead!!!

(Do I need a sarc tag?).

Just Der Gretchenführer­™ showing off her hypocrisy again.

8 foot?. Phhhffffft. Her forehead is taller than that.

Michigan is a lost cause. Chickenschiff’s abound, including a few friends who actually believe all the bullschiff about the chinese flu. They’re still hiding as best they can from it.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/09/michigan-voters-approve-gretchen-whitmer-handling-pandemic-poll-finds/5750849002/

Despite opposition rallies at the Capitol, legal challenges and recall efforts, a majority of Michigan voters approve of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s job performance and handling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Detroit News-WDIV-TV poll.

The first-term Democratic governor’s approval rating has risen more than 15 percentage points from January. The first coronavirus cases were confirmed in Michigan in March. The uptick in popularity could help former Vice President Joe Biden as he seeks to win the state where President Donald Trump prevailed by 10,704 votes in 2016, experts said.

In a poll of 600 likely voters by the Glengariff Group, 59% said they approve of Whitmer’s job performance, including a large share of the independent and Black voters who will be key to any Democratic win in November. The poll surveyed voters in all regions of the state Sept. 1-3, with half reached by cell phone. The poll has an error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Another 38% of voters disapproved of the governor’s performance.

In January, only 43% approved of the job Whitmer was doing and 36% disapproved.

Whitmer’s jump in job approval rating appears to have stemmed from her response to the pandemic. Nearly 61% of Michigan voters approve of Whitmer’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak compared with 36% who disapprove, according to the poll.

The high ratings of her performance are all the more remarkable considering that only 52% of voters surveyed said they had a favorable impression of Whitmer.

The evil Whitmer will ensure that Trump wins Michigan and that John James is their next Senator. Wicked Gretchen will serve us well after all the havoc she has brought upon the good people of MI.

Governor Umbridge

It should be called “Harridan’s Wall.”

The square jawed German she male from the Kit Kat Club strikes again.
