Hundreds Protest Vaccination Mandate Tyranny in Michigan
The Epoch Times ^ | August 7, 2021 | Steven Kovac

LANSING, Mich.—About 800 protesters gathered Friday afternoon on the grounds outside the Michigan State Capitol to rally against government-mandates for vaccinations and masks.

In a call for residence to push back against the government’s increasingly intrusive health policies in an attempt to protect Americans during the pandemic, Tammy Clark, executive director of the conservative group “Stand Up Michigan,” encouraged the audience to let their voices be heard through non-violent civil disobedience.

“If we don’t stop this now, we won’t get another chance,” Clark said. “Let’s show the government that the employees of this country will not tolerate this tyranny. We have inalienable rights and we are not going to give them up. We must refuse to comply with the vaccine mandates and forced mask-wearing at all costs. If you lose your job, go out and get another job!”

I was surprised to read that Michigan State University has decided to keep vaccination and mask mandates. The last I heard MSU was not going to require them fall semester. Apparently the school’s president changed his mind.

800 is just a start, this should be down on the weekends so more people can show up and hopefully end up with hundreds of thousands of people, that would really show the commies they are on to them and they just might get scared instead of them trying to scare the common folks to get the shot, mask up, and stay home.

“they just might get scared instead of them trying to scare the common folks”

I have suggested that the largest turnout of the patriots would be organized all over the U.S.A. could best form in the middle of the map. Maybe Oklahoma or North of Texas. Drivable from the four corners.

It’s just getting worse. Even if you are vaccinated the mask nazis are still after you to wear that stupid cloth around your face.

Masks are the modern day version of burkas. Resist, refuse to wear them. Your liberty is at stake. The USA will become the new Australia if Biden gets his way.

Yep - Biden and the hard left want to destroy America and they are getting pretty damn close to doing it.

At what point will people realize that these protests regardless of size or completely ineffective?

Non-compliance is the only way, and too many businesses are complying... and yet we still give them business.

Facebook and Twitter should have gone bankrupt within 30 days of their first most prominent acts of censorship.

Any business that tries to enact illegal mandates such as these should be boycotted to oblivion.

I wouldn't say completely ineffective as some people walled in by propaganda might say "hey."

Another factor is it tells the unmoving politicians "We know what you are doing" and even if they don't move, people want to tell them that.

Also some people just want it publically known that they don't condone this behavior.

Those are all reasons I took part in the March For Life and wrote politicians futilely against abortion. If someday the Lord says to me "You were part of the USA that did abortion" I can have some kind of defense.

I totally get your point and agree that the protest will not make politicians change their mind.

>>> I wouldn’t say completely ineffective as some people walled in by propaganda might say “hey.”

You are right on this point. We need more awareness. I guess massive protests do work against media propaganda.

My sentiment and intent was to express the futility of say “bringing a knife to a tank fight” when it comes to getting the government to reverse course.

The average person (regardless of where they are on the globe) simply does not realize what we are up against yet.

Normalcy bias is extremely powerful.

We need to break through it.

From Dr. Peter S. Beter’s Audio Letter #35, June 30, 1978:

” . . .Solzhenitsyn’s words had the ring of truth because they are true. But because he dared to speak in spiritual terms, he is being attacked on all sides of the major media.

Those who are attacking Solzhenitsyn now are the very same forces of evil who, a quarter-century ago, attacked the late great British historian Arnold Toynbee. Toynbee, of course, wrote the monumental work entitled “A Study of History.” Over a period of three decades, Toynbee studied in mind-boggling detail all 23 of the separate full-fledged civilizations that are known to have existed in human history. Through a process of comparative study of these civilizations Toynbee arrived at some very far-reaching and important conclusions about how they form, grow, and finally collapse. Toynbee’s “Study of History” was universally acclaimed as an astonishing feat of scholarship—and yet he was attacked viciously through the public media world-wide for just one reason: Toynbee’s critics were driven into a frenzy over the religious approach he had applied to his work.

In an annex to Volume V of his “Study of History”, Toynbee warned of the repudiation of a spiritual principle. He described this phenomenon as “the supreme danger to the spiritual health and even to the material existence of the western body social, a deadlier danger by far than any of our hotly canvassed and loudly advertised political and economic maladies.”

Today, my friends, we are witnessing the breakdown of one of the five civilizations that exist in the world today—that of the
modern Western Civilization. The growth and development of any civilization is a process of challenges and responses to those challenges; and as Toynbee discovered, it is when a civilization fails to respond to an important challenge, especially a moral challenge, that breakdown occurs. History reveals that there is no hard and fast pattern that requires breakdown to occur at all; but once it does take place, the civilization starts disintegrating—and from then on, modern history reveals not a single case in which the process of collapse has ever been reversed.

History has another urgent lesson for us as well, and that is that civilizations are never destroyed merely by an overwhelming external attack. Instead, it’s always internal decay that sets the stage for collapse. And so it is today.

While Jimmy Carter spouts threats and propaganda according to the dictates of those who control him, the words of Alexander Solzhenitsyn carry the weight of true importance proven by the entire history of human existence.”

“My three topics for today are:
• Topic #1 - THE BREAKDOWN AND DISINTEGRATION OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION
• Topic #2 - THE KAMIKAZE PLANS OF AMERICA’S SECRET RULERS
• Topic #3 - THE KREMLIN PLANS FOR THE INTERPLANETARY RUSSIAN EMPIRE
