It's the Misogyny, Stupid

BREAKING: Four Michigan sheriffs refuse to enforce Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home order. 

Oh, Michigan. Just when I was starting to not be embarrassed to be from there again.

A family friend wrote to tell me that people are protesting all over the state -- with no masks and without keeping their distance. The friend says they are calling Gov. Gretchen Whitmer "Hitmer" -- complete with her photo with Hitler mustache drawn on -- and chanting "Lock her up" while holding up pro-Trump signs.

If a Republican were ordering this, much less a Republican man, you would NEVER hear of such a thing. And people wonder how HRC "lost" the election. Truly disgusting. Although I believe the good people outweigh the bad there, 2016 showed us that with the right (aka wrong) confluence of factors, the dark side can win.

 P.S. Spelling *is* essential, honey.

A friend of mine there says they have a name for these people: Covidiots.

Dirty little secret about Michigan: Because of the auto industry, it's filled with waaaay too many people from "Down South" who moved for work.

UPDATE: A reader points out that these Tea Party-esque protests were organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition and the Michigan Freedom Fund, a Betsy "Amway/Dept. of Education" DeVos family-linked conservative group.

The protest was organized by the Michigan Freedom Fund, an outfit supported by the DeVos family. Of Amway and Department of Education fame.
