Posted on 05/17/2020 11:15:12 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Clinton shared a tweet on Friday about protests at the state legislature in Michigan, commenting: “Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism. It cannot be tolerated.”
Hundreds gathered to protest Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order on Thursday in Lansing. It was the third major demonstration at the state’s Capitol since businesses were shuttered in March due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the disease caused by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, the novel coronavirus that emerged from Wuhan, China, late last year and sparked a global pandemic.
Whitmer recently extended Michigan’s stay-at-home order—one of the strictest in the United States—until at least May 28 to prevent the spread of the deadly bug.
Michigan has the fourth-highest death toll from COVID-19 in the United States, with nearly 5,000 dead, according to a Friday update by Whitmer. During the briefing, she said health authorities on Friday reported Michigan’s 50,000 cases of COVID-19 infection.
At the briefing, she referred to the protests, urging unity and calling for demonstrations to remain peaceful.
“I know many people in our state are feeling frustrated,” Whitmer said, “some are scared, some are angry—that’s understandable.”
“But now is not a time for division, for hatred, and certainly not a time for violence,” she said, adding, “Now is a time for us to pull together.”

now is the time to get her ass out of office
Says the career criminal...
I hereby declare Hillary Clinton a loathsome criminal bitch.
how many have died at the peaceful protests again?
The Hyperbole from the left is mindnubmingly idiotic and immature. Governors who denied people the right to get HCQ and who sent sick people into nursing homes and caused 10’s of 1000’s of unnecessary premature deaths are far closer to what she claimed than any peaceful protestors were!
From the bitch that used terrorism to keep Bills victims from talking
I watched a youtube this morning that said the legislature has filed suit against Gov Whitmer.
My understanding is there is a 1945 emergency powers act that gave the governor pretty much complete power during an emergency. However there is a 1976 statue that limited the governor’s power and required a legislative estension past 28 days.
The legislature apparently voted against extending her powers, but she has maintained her orders anyway.
If that’s the case, I expect Whitmer will lose.
Can someone confirm that’s the issue?
QUIT VOTING THESE COMMUNISTS IN OFFICE !@$#$@!%#!!
As a Michigan FReeper is it possible for me to despise Witch Whitmer and Her Royal Thighness Hillary any more than I do?
I’m trying to find out.
She right. Weren’t there any armed women to go in with them?
“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
— Hillary Clinton, 2003
Just like those domestic terrorists with that red white and blue flag and those pamphlets against king George. How dare they?
peaceful protests are “domestic terrorism” but political and psychological terrorism by the media/dem complex is fine. What a pathetic old bat she is.
This was NEVER about protecting Americans, please, these are the same people who murder full term babies..this is about POWER and CONTROL and finally turning America into the Communist Utopia they have always envisioned..they know they will NEVER be given this gift of an opportunity ever again so they are going full force now
Just go away.
Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly.
Socialism = They lock you up when you don’t obey The State.
Communism = They take you out back and shoot you when you don’t obey The State.
Who the hell is Hillary? Can’t we just forget her?
Take loathing Never Trumpers have for PDJT and multiply it by one-hundred-million-billion and you might come close to how much I HATE Satan’s Prom Queen.
That is my understanding as well.
