Michigan Governor Whitmer Asks Why State Protests Didn’t Happen During World War II…

Oh dear, the knucklehead is strong with this one. During a briefing earlier today Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer compared the COVID-19 battle to World War II and asked the citizens of her state why they were not protesting state orders during the war? Yes, she actually said this:

“In World War II, there weren’t people lining up at the capitol to protest the fact that they had to drop everything they were doing and build planes or tanks, or to ration food.”

Does anyone want to tell Whitmer the difference is during the war effort people were working and getting paid; but under her unilateral decrees people are forbidden from working and no-one is earning a living…. Which is the entire reason for the protests, DUH.

.

The stupid… it hurts.  Somewhere, somehow, somebody is recommending this lady to be Joe Biden’s running mate.  Can you imagine?

    If she were to run as Biden’s VP, she’d raise the average IQ of the ticket considerably. But it still would be a negative number.

      Lets pray Biden chooses someone like the intellectually challenged Whitmer or the positively repulsive Stacy Abrams. My fear is he picks Michele Obama,which would skyrocket Dem turnout and guarantee him the women’s vote. Many dismiss the possibility but can we really deny they will do anything to win….

        One thing-Michelle would have to get in front of the public. Debate pence, and speak to large crowds. She’s not good at that. Also Trump has got a big chunk of suburban women, blacks and Hispanics. This will not be as easy as imagined..
        I fear Hillary more than Michelle..
        However, so should Joe..

        I’ve predicted for years that the Dems will put up Michele O. I wouldn’t vote for her but she’d be a winner. Imagine the president verbally attacking a minority female, would definitely not be the best position for him.

        Biden will not be the presidential candidate, imo. He, his supporters, the party will concoct some situation where he’ll step back for health, age, or whatever they choose reason, therefore freeing the delegates to draft someone else to run. Opens up the field to Michele O and possibly old Lizzie as VP. I will happily be wrong on that speculation, but….

    Prior to and during WWII, many Americans were vocally opposed to American participation in the war, for diverse reasons, from pacifism, to avoiding WWI redeux, to pro-Nazi sentiments. Michigan’s governor never heard of (Detroit’s own) Father Coughlin? The America First Committee? The German-American Bund (which held marches in NYC demanding isolationism)? Henry Ford? The “Mothers’ Movement” (Elizabeth Dilling’s, not Frank Zappa’s)? Etc.

    Ignorance and public office too often march hand in hand, but Whitmer is overachieving.

        I’ve been meaning to ask what is the deal with the friggin’ ASL signers that every democrat politician seems to require nowadays. Per Gallaudet University: “only about 2 to 4 of every 1,000 people in the United States are “functionally deaf,” with most of these becoming deaf relatively late in life, typically in their 80’s”. So, if Governor Half-Wit is addressing a typical press conference grouping of less than a hundred people, statistically, there is likely no one in attendance who needs the services of this animated goofball. And, for everyone else watching her speech on TV, everything must be closed-captioned these days per FCC closed captioning rules. So, this is essentially meaningless virtue-signalling theater. So stupid.

    Call to action for Michiganders:

    PLEASE call/e-mail Lee Chatfield
    MI-SOH and tell him:

    1. Get the House BACK IN SESSION THIS WEEK to vote on the 2 bills.
    2. DO NOT EXTEND Whitmer’s executive powers.

    The House must vote on the 2 bills in the next day or two (the MI Senate rules need a 5 day layover to vote), or the LOCKDOWN WILL BE EXTENDED.

    The bills are for unemployment benefits and liability protection for Healthcare workers. These are already included in her executive orders and if not passed, the LOCKDOWN WILL BE EXTENDED.

    Tell Lee:
    DO NOT EXTEND Whitmers executive powers.
    GET BACK TO WORK AND PASS THE BILLS

    If these 2 bills are not passed in the House in the next day or two, it will be too late to send them to the Senate with the 5 day layover-and the lockdown WILL BE EXTENDED.

Then, she went around the legislature and borrowed millions of dollars of bonds. She and her sidekick Dana Nessel are extremely unpopular here.

    As to why there were no protests, they were too busy saving the world, and they had drafts back then for the men. They didn’t get a choice. The women were behind the war efforts just as much, if not more, than the men. They sacrificed their pantyhose for the cause. They picked up the slack for the shortage of men, as did the men who were told they couldn’t go. Someone had to stay behind and pay the bills, man the forts on the homefronts.

    To be fair I think it’s a question as to why people don’t understand/respect the National Emergencies Act, the Public Health Service Act, or The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act. I think that boils down to the Consent of the Governed. With WWII there was not the ambiguity there is now. We had been clearly been attacked and were at war. In our current situation there’s too much ambiguity (fake info, poor models, low death counts etc.), which naturally decreases broad, unwavering consent.

    There’s a delicate balance that must be maintained in order for the governed to continue to comply. Several states, especially hers, have tipped the scales by adding draconian measures and now they’re seeing the backlash, the governed refusing to consent.

    Yes there were many protests of Constitution violations in WWII. Few publicized then. A major violation of the US Constitution was when the American citizens that were immigrants from Japan and their children born in the US were placed in military controlled camps and their property dispersed. All this by the Democrat progressive Franklin Roosevelt admin. The US CITIZENS’ legal appeal to the US Supreme Court was rejected.

    The malevolent ignorance is strong in this one. GW received a Bachelor’s from MSU in Communications. The effort was wasted there. She received a J.D. from Detroit Law, MSU. Anyone who cares to dig deeper into the political appointments of the administration that formed around her will be struck by the lack of relevant experience that many appointees had to the jobs they were given.
    So, if people wonder why many state officials were MIA, THAT is the best explanation.
