While the Greatest Generation were defined by their sacrifice, the current crop of Republicans might be most accurately categorized by their selfishness.
Wednesday, protestors flocked the streets in Ohio and Michigan in defiance of statewide social distancing policies.
In Ohio, protestors stormed the stormed the state capitol building with no regard to public health or safety. The brigade gathered in close proximity, holding signs with incendiary conspiracy theories accusing infectious disease experts Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci of working “for [Bill] Gates.”
The protestors, clad in MAGA gear and armed to the teeth, claimed that the state’s guidelines are unconstitutional and demanded a ‘reopening’ of the economy.
Similar scenes played out in Michigan as residents took to the streets in cars and on foot.
One protestor told Fox News, “You can’t buy lawn fertilizer or grass seed? Come on!”
Another lamented, “We’re tired of not being able to buy the things that we need, go to the hairdresser, get our hair done.”
Both protests were a glaring display of hyper-partisanship, with residents waving Trump and Confederate flags.
Who knew Michigan was a southern state?
Jeers of “Lock her up!” could be heard, in reference to Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Perhaps most dangerously, the protestors may represent a new wave of ‘superspreaders’ in the state. We’re sure to see stories in the coming weeks linking coronavirus cases and deaths to these very events.
Anything to own the libs.
