Going along with the DNC maybe wearing thin on Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in more than one way. The governor is getting death threats due to her draconian COVID restrictions. At a taxpayer funded cost of $1.5M, she’s putting up an eight foot tall electric fence around her home in Lansing. We’ve flattened that curve. Now she and the Democrats want to keep us from getting sick at all. Laudable? Yes. Realistic? No.
Democrats forcing party members to live a double life
The bigger goal is creating as many problems for Trump as possible. The old reason for going along with a president from the opposite party is out the window. Both parties used to work together for the benefit of the country. Not anymore.
When the country was founded, people risked their lives daily. The Democrat governor risks her life keeping COVID restrictions going. People need to work, eat and get out to recreate. She may be looking at her last term in office.
Whitmer has to speak out of both sides of her mouth
On one hand, she publicly criticizes. She tweeted out February 2017, “$40 BILLION for the wall. Think how many kids that would educate, how many roads, bridges and pipes it would fix.” In 2018 she said, “it is time we get back to building bridges, not walls.”
On the other, she suddenly sees the reason behind a wall. Liberals scream against a conservative idea – until it applies to them. Then they see the reasoning why. The silence can be deafening.
At what point is a Democrat forced from office?
Is it indeed force? Or is it the quiet fury at the ballot box? Other countries shed blood to remove leaders. In May she had to be safeguarded by state police (that she walked a fine line on defunding) when a militia group stormed the state house.
Tiffany Brown, a spokesperson for the governor, waived off the outrage of her fence construction. It’s “routine maintenance and upgrades to ensure the safety, security and protection of any sitting governor and the first family,” Biden criticized Trump about shutting off China due to COVID. Weeks later he said that was actually a good move.
Towing that party line can be dangerous.
