She's doing this right.

It's coming down to war between good and evil.

Pray for the good guys, or, better yet, become one yourself.

Self correcting problem.

It's interesting watching the convolutions in the Brave Pioneer mindset, as they try to process how the President literally seizing state property is soooper kosher, and a Governor discharging their duty to protect citizens is turrible, because...FREEDOM!

Remember when protesters in wheelchairs arrested after release of health care bill outside of Moscow Mitch's office?

This country is farked up.

That Woman is fantastic! 

These simpletons are dangerous and noxious. I feel really bad for the poor Capital Police who had to deal with these assholes.

State Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, a Republican, said on the floor Thursday that "the Legislature must make a choice to either allow our governor to continue to govern by executive order or to trust our constituents to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families without the governor mandating a one-size-fits-all, stay-at-home order."

Now that's how you trigger a Michigan GOP voter.

The scene yesterday in Lansing will be used for years as an example of "White Privilege" .

No way a large group of black or brown people could storm the capital building brandishing weapons protesting the government and get off scot-free.

White people get thermometer to the head while minorities would have received a bullet.

Even the news is treating this differently.  Small headlines on the front pages of CNN and NBCNews and the story is absent on FoxNews main page.

We have some of these 2nd-amendment nutters showing up in Raleigh today to "protest."  Considering that the Reopen NC crowd tried to break down the gate at the governor's mansion on Tuesday, I'm not expecting this to end well.
 
2020-05-01 8:52:39 AM  
open carry is one thing but how are you allowed to bring guns into government buildings

Mostly.  But her security should have bathed in their blood.

I don't know if you noticed but the guys carrying the weapons are white.

They should all be in prison for terrorism.

Thoughts & prayers.

... that these 'brave' patriots either die in pain, or survive and have every breath feel like they're breathing in glass shards.  Either way, may they suffer in pain.
 
2020-05-01 8:55:12 AM  
If they would treat them like conservatives wanted Occupy or Standing Rock protestors treated I would probably be much more excited for today.

Shame the thunderstorms didn't stick around another 24 hours.
 
2020-05-01 8:56:02 AM  
yes I noticed, how is it still even allowed? if you try to go into a federal building with a gun, your ass ain't getting in, no matter how white you are

RESPECT THE POLICE

What needs to happen is, every single black man in Michigan with a long gun needs to enter the Senate chamber armed.

Lets see how long that is tolerated.

Those cops should have violently clubbed that arrogant, screaming asshole to the ground and dared his buddies to do anything about it.

Cripes, they rolled repurposed APCs because African Americans wanted police to stop shooting them.  That's where America is 60 years after the Civil Rights Act.

The intra-state clash over the declarations spotlights one of many split-party state governments that are balancing public health efforts to mitigate the pandemic with popular efforts demanding to reopen the economy

polling says otherwise. and this is supposedly liberal CNN

I completely agree.

Now find a politician with the balls to enforce the law against them - and Whitmer could have easily sicced the Michigan National Guard on them and authorized the state sheriffs to conduct arrests.

The male version of Karen is "Plague rat" in this instance.

Of course he does.  Inciting violence is one of his favorite moves.

Cue Altemeyer's "The Authoritarians", Chapter 3, subsection 3.

Regarding the top of that image, I was recently watching "They Live" and noticed that the riot police, who I think are supposed to be out of control and super police-state like, were barely wearing any armor and only really had riot shield. Compared to what is regularly seen now, I thought the movie was totally unrealistic in its fore-sight.

Because it would result in the deaths of hundreds or more black men. Farking duh. I was building off of the obvious double standard.

I can't believe that needed to be explained.

Karma Chameleon: I hope she's the VP.


I think you are going to get your wish.

She has made all the right moves, even in the face of armed idiots.

Stacy Abrams, on the other hand, is making a complete ass of herself, almost begging to be picked.

Same. They'll get gunned down immediately.
