(Right Country) – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) truly does not have a clue, just as President Trump has said recently at a rally in the state. The out-of-touch leftist recently alleged that citizens armed with “automatic rifles” showed up at her house to protest and then blamed President Trump because he called her out for refusing to reopen the state.
The people of Michigan were probably not bothered at all by the obnoxious, on-going lockdowns before President Trump pointed out to them that they should be. Whitmer is delusional. Not to mention her use of the term “automatic rifles” is comical.
Breitbart has the story:
Whitmer appeared on the No Lie with Bryan Tyler Cohen podcast, during which he suggested the outworking of Trump’s focus on her extended shutdown “increased the number of death threats, it increased the number of people showing up on [her] front lawn with automatic rifles.”
She then contended that the focus on her was a political move, “designed to tear us apart for the benefit of a re-election and that’s criminal.”
Speaking of these things that are “criminal,” Whitmer made the decision to funnel sick and contagious coronavirus patients into nursing homes causing these high-risk populations to experience massive outbreaks leading to the preventable deaths of thousands. If anyone’s actions have been criminal it would be Whitmer’s and we would do well not to forget this and allow Whitmer and the other Democrat Governors Wolf, Murphy, and Cuomo who did the same in their own states to get away with these crimes.
Moving on, Breitbart continues:
On September 11, 2020, Fox 2 quoted Trump telling Michigan residents, “Michigan has already gained and regained more than half of the jobs that it lost — and if your state was ever allowed to safely reopen by your governor, who doesn’t have a clue, just like Joe [Biden], you would have gained far more than that.”
He added, “Open up your state, Madam Governor. Open up your state!”
Whitmer’s reference to “automatic” firearm is not new. On May 26, 2020, Breitbart News reported that she claimed protesters with “automatic rifles” were outside her home. She provided no evidence to show how she ascertained the firearms were “automatic.” She simply said, “My family has had men with automatic rifles standing in view of our front window outside our home.”
Using terms like “automatic rifles” is Whitmer and other Democrats way of making themselves sound more informed and knowledgeable than they really are. We all know these anti-Second Amendment zealots aren’t capable of making the distinction between automatic, semi-automatic and manual guns.
Hillary Clinton made that very clear herself in 2014 when she claimed that we need more laws to keep people from entering schools “with an automatic weapon” and killing innocent people. When Clinton made the assertion on June 17, 2014 she failed to provide even a single example of an “automatic weapon” being used in a school shooting but did, however, sight the 2012 attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School in which the attacker did not use an automatic firearm.
Democrats use words to trick their lock-step supporters into believing they know what they’re talking about. The obvious truth is, they don’t.
