Gretchen Whitmerís Virtue Signaling Canít Hide That Her Lockdown Strategy Has Failed

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has pulled yet another publicity stunt by declaring racism a public health crisis last Wednesday. To address it, she created the “Black Leadership Advisory Council” tasked with a number of goals, including identifying policies that negatively affect black Michiganders.

Additionally, all state employees will now be required to partake in implicit bias training to understand how their unconscious racism can affect others. This move is nothing more than virtue signaling to impress the public by using the latest newsworthy topics to grab their attention: racism and COVID-19. Whitmer is doing it not only to look good, but to distract from her failed coronavirus lockdown strategy.

I once had a woman boss who reminds me of Whitmer. She was feared and hated by all of us “hired help” in the office.

The day she announced she was leaving to get another job, we all went out for “happy hour” and celebrated her departure.

My sister did that for a co-worker. They had a small going away party, and when the co-worker left the party really began.

I once told an out going tyrant that Pizza was coming, to be delivered an hour after she left for good.

Haven't heard much about the recall petition drive.

The petition drive to repeal the 1945 emergency powers law which she's using, is going great.

There are some crazy people in Michigan. My once apolitical Michigander brother is drinking the Whitmer koolaid. He suffers from a severe case of TDS. I haven’t talked to him in over a month after a “discussion” of the urban legend University of Alabama COVID parties.
He denies that COVIDV deaths per million In Michigan are double that of Alabama.
This males me sad..

...by declaring racism a public health crisis...

What Queen Gretchen I (among other Democrat governors) has discovered is that by declaring a "public health crisis" she can do pretty much whatever she wants by executive order.

What's next, declaring voting Republican a "public health crisis"?

Baby got them crazy eyes. Whitmer is the kind of girlfriend you find to be great in bed but you very quickly find out she’s a nut job and you dump her fast.

Then she proceeds to stalk you to the point point of a court ordered restraint.

Whitmer's "governing", if you can call it that, brings her opinion into how history should now teach that racism is a disease that mainly African-Americans are susceptible to and victimized by, with white people being the only "carriers". She also believes or says she believes that white people may not understand how this could be, or even realize how racist they are, so it's almost like COVID-19 where you can be "asymptomatic", but don't kill yourself yet because it may not be your fault since the racism is "systemic" on top of being "historic". It all comes down to this: Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D- MI) has declared that she knows you better than you know yourselves, and I for one, hate when that happens.

Whenever one of her policies is shown to be failing, she comes out and lectures us.

Interminable lockdown: She came out and played the victim, after her husband got busted pulling rank. She then slightly loosened restrictions.

After she marched maskless with BLM: loosened restrictions more so that they could riot (After condemning reopen protests)

Mask mandate for 4 weeks, no discernible effect on numbers: You’re all filthy racists.

My fear is that if Gropey Joe picks her, and Trump wins and Michigan goes red, she’ll come back and try to punish us.
