As European countries successfully ease lockdowns and respected scientists and physicians call for America to reopen, most Americans understand that reopening is a question of when, not if. While many Americans disagree about timing, it’s a conversation that we have to have.
But for Democratic politicians and national media figures, disagreement is equivalent to Nazism. That’s not an exaggeration.
On CNN, Jake Tapper asked Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer if President Trump’s support of the Michigan protesters was akin to supporting the Charlottesville protesters. Her answer made it clear that she thinks it is.
The Washington Examiner reports:
CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer if President Trump’s praise of armed protesters who stormed the Michigan state Capitol in Lansing were comparable to his remarks after the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.
Well, some of the outrageousness of what happened at our capitol this week, you know, depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country,” Whitmer responded. “The confederate flags and nooses, the swastikas, the, you know, behavior that you’ve seen in all of the clips, is not representative of who we are in Michigan.
This is a typical ploy used by the media to distract from the concerns of real Americans.
The presence of cretinous loser-racists at a rally doesn’t mean that every person at the rally is a racist. And it certainly doesn’t mean that everyone that disagrees with Gov. Whitmer’s heavy-handed tactics is a racist.
And it doesn’t mean that Gov. Whitmer is right, or effective. She’s presided over a horrifically ineffective response and one of the highest death rates in the world.
She’s done all this while managing to crush the economy and the civil rights of the citizens. And her barely disguised thirst for the Vice-Presidential position is a disgraceful indication that she doesn’t care about anything but her own political career.
Tapper the propagandist and Whitmer the authoritarian are attacking their critics as Nazis. Think about that for a bit.
