    “Dozens of protesters, some of whom were armed, gathered Thursday inside Michigan's Capitol building to voice their opposition to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home order, with tensions high as lawmakers were poised to debate an extension of the declaration.

    Holding American flags and handmade signs, the demonstrators in Lansing first congregated shoulder-to-shoulder outside before demanding to be let inside the building. Some chanted "Let us in," The Detroit News reported.”

    It is refreshing to see Americans across the nation standing up for our rights and individual liberty. These blue state governors and blue city mayors whose lock down policies are excessively restrictive need to be objected to. It’s great to see people standing up to power in their states. It’s also good to see democrat lawmakers feel uneasy about seeing their fellow citizens using their 2nd amendment rights.

    Thank you President Trump and A.G. Barr for standing with the protesters and being willing to oppose excessive restrictions in court.

    Did you catch how that racist Tlaib played the race card?

    Anyway, libs don't respect protests unless there's violence, mayhem, rioting, looting and arson. I doubt you'll see much of that from true Americans.

    Cant wait to see the spikes there in a couple of weeks.

    I wonder if this bunch will enjoy the same irony as they other bunch where the leader got Covid from her March.

    Ron White said it best:"You can't fix stupid".

    Think of it like this; the government, liberal groups, the ACLU and the courts have already told us that movement can't be restricted even when it's in the best interest of the community. People should volunteer to comply with safety stuff, but not under the threat of being fined $1000. The crazy part is inmates are being let out prison because of the Chinavirus, but non criminals could get jail time for being outside.

    You cannot just lock up 300 million
    It’s the biggest abuse of state power in US history

    I don't know, that time they literally locked people up because of their race seems worse. This is just social distancing.

    I hate that this is going to happen, and I hate that we're going to see a spike. I wish it wasn't so.

    Being trapped at home is far worse fate than a virus that only kills 1/1000

    Being trapped in an internment camp while your property is stolen is a far worse fate than being trapped in your home to protect you from a virus that kills 1/100 people.

    What is the corona virus situation in Michigan?

    If there is little virus there then the protest is legit. If it's like new york. It's not.

    I wish adults had the right to choose to dine in as mothers have for abortion.

    It’s a great example of a man-child throwing a temper tantrum in public. Nothing more.

    During WW II, Americans were willing to make sacrifices like rationing, blackouts, long work days to meet war quotas, difficult economic times and fighting and dying in war ...

    Modern day conservatives throw a temper tantrum after 40 days of watching TV and drinking beer in their homes ... the perfect illustration of the snowflakes some Americans have become. Sad.

    Meanwhile medical professionals on the front line have worked their asses off and all they’re asking is a little help and respect from fellow Americans. And these conservatives respond with a “**** you, we won’t help you, we need to run around like children and make your lives more difficult.”

    Is it really that bad out there? Or wherever you are? Honestly we've been in lockdown lite since april 3. Go anywhere but dont do certain retail, grow a mullet, parks closed but really just the playground and parking lots (silly). beer grocery gas all wide open. I really haven't felt severely restricted myself. Just limited extracurricular, we are actively removing april limitations a couple at a time.

    As a consumer it's been a limited hassle. But on the business end the layoffs have been massive.

    It becomes painfully obvious where some business loyalties lie. Not all, just some.

    Except that isn't really true because you absolutely still have an immigration system that restricts movement.

    Also I haven't heard of anyone getting jail time. Are your courts even functioning right now?

    Sometimes people gotta touch the hot stove to figure it out. Too bad in this case, the burns are contagious.

    Are you still claiming to not be on the left and how do you know all protesters are "Conservative"? You know TV and beer cost $?

    Outside of the Detroit metro area it’s very little so the protest is legit. In the Detroit area they should be acting like it’s New York City. This is why one size fits all dictatorships in NY, NJ, Ill, Michigan, and California are not appropriate.

    Can’t handle the protests when they are directed at propaganda political leaders by conservatives? You only respect the right to protest and engage in civil disobedience when the roles are reversed. Then it’s a ok.

    If you want a good riot & the cops to stand down, hire Black Lives Matter & you will get your riot & they will loot all the flat screen TV’s, while the cops eat donuts.
