Democrat governors across the country are facing massive political backlash.
States locked down their economies to fight the coronavirus. But Democrats are going too far.
And now one Democrat rising star is about to be brought down because of this court case.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is the face of the Democrats’ totalitarian Gestapo tactics in ordering state shutdowns.
Whitmer recently extended Michigan’s lockdown to May 1 and added new restrictions banning the sale of baby car seat, seeds to plant in gardens, and made it a crime for Michiganders to use motorized boats or travel to their lake houses.
The backlash was swift and severe.
Attorney David Helm filed a lawsuit in federal court, arguing Whitmer’s Stalinist orders violated residents’ First and Fifth Amendment rights by eliminating their right to free association and taking away their property without just compensation.
“It’s taking a sledge hammer to an ant,” Helm stated. “We believe it is over-broad and over-reaching. There is a way to do it appropriately without infringing on Constitutional rights like the governor has.”
“Our position is, ordering businesses to shut down, preventing residents and citizens from accessing their second homes, within the state is essentially a taking and they need to be compensated for it,” he added.
Contrary to the fake news media’s false portrayals, Helm and his clients are not advocating for insurrection and rebellion.
All they want is fundamental rights respected at the same time as protecting public health.
“We are not arguing for political dissidence or any sort of protest. What we are saying, is that people have the right to associate with their friends and family. And that is being unjustly infringed,” Helm concluded.
Helm’s lawsuit was not the only trouble Whitmer found herself in.
Thousands of Michigan residents jammed up the state capitol, blaring their horns and chanting “lock her up” to protest Whitmer believing she was a jackboot dictator from a socialist Soviet Republic.
Whitmer whined about the protests to Rachel Maddow and even threatened to extend the lockdown to punish the protestors for questioning her fascist orders.
“But I think the thing that I’m most concerned about and I think my fellow governors are as well is a resurgence. When you see a political rally, that’s what it was yesterday, a political rally where people are not wearing masks, and they are in close quarters, and they are touching one another, you know that that’s precisely what makes this kind of disease drag out and expose more people.”
She added, “People can converge together in Lansing, and then they went back out to their homes across the state of Michigan. You know, the odds are very high that that’s, they’re spreading COVID-19 along with it. And so it’s that kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation where we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they were protesting.”
Before this turn of events, Whitmer was considered a frontrunner for the vice presidential nomination.
Now Whitmer is a modern-day King George III whose tyranny inspired a grassroots uprising.
