"The whites are wild"

"You can’t make this shit up.

In Michigan people are clogging the streets with their cars in protest of the stay-at-home order.

They’re calling it #OperationGridlock

If it’s safe to re-open why are they protesting from their cars??"

and i dont mean the economic pressure of getting on a crowded bus because you have to make ends meet, but actual social gatherings.

These same "AMERIKKKA FIRST" folks who got mad over a black dude kneeling during a song are singing the praises of the prez saying he's got "total power" (which goes against their beloved constitution, of course) and doing shit like ..... this.

These are among the worst people on earth.

https://www.rt.com/usa/485572-michigan-seeds-sale-ban-coronavirus/

She's been trying to define what count's as "essential items." Basically attempting to say what citizens can and cannot buy, or can and cannot do, regardless if one is "social distancing" or not.

Many residents feel like she's overstepping her use of authority, and want her gone:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/online-petition-to-recall-michigan-governor-gains-more-than-150-000-signatures


They are probably protesting the governor herself, and not the overall concept of "stay at home"

im not even gonna get into the dcexaminer and rt links.

whitmer has a 70+ approval in the state based on her handling of the crisis (including a strong majority of repubs). the majority of people in michigan trust her handling of the crisis over trump.
https://twitter.com/HotlineJosh/status/1249807482026889216

the repub governor of ohio has basically handled everything the same way as whitmer (and has similarly high approval). but for some reason theres nobody in pickup trucks protesting him.

right wing nutjobs are tryna astro turf their own protest movement and make it an election year issue.

there were like 40 people protesting today lol. the entire point was to get outsized/disproportionate media coverage then spin on fox news and facebook.

then of course mainstream media drones like chris cilizza at cnn start amplifying it (because nothing drives the dc news cycle like whatever repubs have chosen to be fake mad about)
https://twitter.com/CillizzaCNN/status/1250498444155895811

and pretty soon everyone is forced to address it like its a major/polarizing issue. making it a major/polarizing issue.

Folks being threatened with fines and arrest if they go outside and gather up with other people. We're literally seeing a modern version of slave codes imposed on the people, all under the auspice of keeping us 'safe' from a virus that we can't avoid anyway.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slave_codes

Y'all really think they just gonna give us our rights back after this is over? We're in the "new normal" now, remember?

Freedom of assembly... gone.

Orweillian levels of spying on the population... here: https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/04/apple-and-google-collaborate-on-coronavirus-contact-tracing-test.html

Where's your papers? https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/03/health/immunity-passport-coronavirus-lockdown-intl/index.html

Constitutional rights gonna be suspended every time a new virus comes out? Every (staged) mass shooting? Every hurricane, earthquake or flood?


>the repub governor of ohio has basically handled everything the same
>way as whitmer (and has similarly high approval). but for some reason
>theres nobody in pickup trucks protesting him.

Also: Ohio protest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3-Bw8JxpO8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EJcFsl4q8g

Michigan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdkauH6NBzE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p17VpYVKCtQ


These people are out to make sure THEIR RIGHTS are protected and preserved. Otherwise, anytime the .gov wants to lock us down they can just say there is a virus so do what we say.


--


On the other hand, we've got people calling the cops on others for not 'social distancing'

Big Brother is watching:

Is that FLIR the NYPD is using? Damn.

wtf:

https://nypost.com/2020/03/29/elderly-woman-dies-after-being-shoved-for-not-social-distancing-sources/


You know where all this is heading. THAT is the reason that people are out there. Of course the .gov-affiliated news isn't gonna push that angle hard when they air the story.

Honestly rather take my chances going out from the virus than to live in a permanent state of subservience and fear.


--


Are some of the folks out there for purely political reasons? I'm sure of it. Parasites are what they are, in my opinion. Risking people's for political, personal or self-centered reasons is absolutely scummy in a time like this.

Every white entity has been deputized to police you since before you were born
In both your personal life and professional life, the emotions and sense of comfort of most any white person has been put before your legal rights
Let the illusion go that you’re defending anything other that the freedom of whiteness

She’s being held accountable in ways that the oligarchs in the federal government and markets never are.

Amazon, Google, Facebook are getting more data on us than ever before. Trump and McConnell are conspiring to twist the constitution again. They’re not calling in to Rush from their cars because of that.

These are the same people who were complaining about death panels don’t seem to understand that we have de facto death panels now because local health departments have to coordinate testing with way less kits available than we need. And hospitals that don’t have supplies they need. And they want to “reopen” the economy so we can test their capacity.

And these assholes in Michigan don’t care that voting rights and reproductive health rights and the ADA (and its successors) are being trampled on all over the country. That the president is floating ideas like killing UPS - an institution that is as old as the country and is vital to places like the UP some of them drove down from.

They don’t care that all governors are doing their own versions of this, and declaring WWE and fast food essential businesses is just as arbitrary as what Michigan is doing. Especially when the root of a lot of this is miscommunication and poor implementation by stores rather than an intent to limit rights.

We could go on...

cases but one of the lowest overall case rates and death percentages because we have a dem governor who was very proactive in shutting shit down (as well as leveraging in-state biotech companies to have better than average test, and consequently trace ability than other states).

but they still down here call they protesting about 'jerbs'. fuck them.

y'all wanna work. get a covid-19 shot directly to your temple and go have fun.

shit is astroturf.

yes, there are real privacy and rights concerns in the mix. but if we conflate that w/ the bullshit being pushed by people in bad faith, that's super counterproductive for us.

if ppl got legit concerns w/ what she's doing (or any other govs), talk to them on a policy level. don't legitimize these assholes on the street w/ confederate flags in fucking michigan because they crafted their specious arguments to include a couple points that a reasonable person might have.

peace & blessings,

In response to Reply # 46


  

          

i'm wondering if even a number of their own loved ones getting sick and dying will change their minds

the argument i keep seeing conservatives make is that deaths are only so high because we're blaming everything on covid. they seem to have circled back to the "just the flu" narrative.

i saw this last week of this Texas woman who was going on about how this was all a hoax, and she died of it a couple weeks later. Her gufundme had her cause of death as COVID-19 but they later removed that part because, fuck the libs.. or maybe the weren't getting donations that way.

HAPPENING NOW: Hundreds of protesters are chatting and yelling “LET US IN” and “TYRANNY” as Capitol Sargeabt at Arms and MSP keep them from entering the House floor.

The public is not allowed on the floor in any other situation.

But sympathize to a degree with the sentiment of taking up arms to power that they feel is unfairly treating them.

There is not white call to answer to or for or about these folks the same way every black person has to have a comment on a BLM protest or activity.

So if there is a downplaying it's by people that just don't hold themselves accountable in the fucked up ways they hold others and since they have the keys to power they can get away with it.
