Who Started The Braindead Zombie Hospital Blocking Protest In Michigan Yesterday?

These ignorant assholes didn't just show up and try to kill people stuck in ambulances going to the hospital. Someone herded them there.

Who did the herding?

When will the zombie be charged with terrorism? Attempted murder?

We all know it was just to attack the "Dimmocrat" in the governor's mansion and support the liar in chief with blood on his hands.

I will bet the astro-turfing was coordinated by some super rich scum who don't want their total control of government to fade.

We need a COMPLETE investigation.

Who sent out the orders for the confederates to attack / block the hospital?

This is a real story the news will poo poo at.

62. russians were likely coordinating 2009 tea party protests too, along with talk radio assistance

talk radio with limbaugh in lead is pushing the end to social distancing, stay at home, making fun of mask wearing, etc and with talk radio they can coordinate on a local level

roger stone boasted of using talk radio to generate 'protests' to stop the fla recount in 2000. the russians have been horning in on talk radio since at least 2008 (using limbaugh to force palin on mccain)

tell your relatives to keep their ears out for RW talk radio

it is not a coincidence trump wanted to start a two hour talk radio show

5. DeVos Group, Right-Wing Fringe Organization Threaten Public Health

LANSING — On Wednesday, the Michigan Conservative Coalition, a far-right fringe group, and the Michigan Freedom Fund, a DeVos-backed corporate front group, will buck public health safety measures and attempt to create a “traffic jam” in Lansing to protest Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s efforts to protect public health.

“These fringe groups have one goal: attack Gov. Whitmer for anything, even if it means sending a dangerous message about the importance of social distancing during a global pandemic. While hundreds of Michiganders die every day because of COVID-19 and essential workers are doing their best to keep our communities healthy and functioning, these selfish and out-of-touch fringe groups are throwing a temper tantrum at the expense of public safety and health,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Normally we wouldn’t give these childish games the time of day, but we think it’s important that the people of Michigan know who these people really are and the fact that a group supported by one of Trump’s cabinet members, Betsy DeVos, is at the helm of this dangerous ship. Republicans who run in the same circles as these far-right activists, like Mike Shirkey and Lee Chatfield, should denounce this political stunt.”

As a member of Trump’s cabinet, Betsy DeVos should be doing everything she can to promote public health during this crisis, but instead, the Michigan Freedom Fund, a group she and her family have funded for years, is part of this “traffic jam” effort that undermines the credibility of public health experts.

The Michigan Conservative Coalition is a far-right, fringe group that has peddled right-wing memes featuring Pepe the Frog and Islamophobic memes on its Facebook page. They recently hosted an event featuring Michelle Malkin, a far-right pundit who has defended white nationalists and holocaust deniers. State Rep. Matthew Maddock is involved with the group.

I expect it was within this network that it was organized. I think they are "grass roots" because the two big issues are guns and abortion.

In Michigan's lower peninsula Detroit, Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo are blue but outside of these refuges, the state is deep red leaning to reactionary.

56. So

My house is in Rockford 15 mins from downtown. Relatives another 15 mins plus north. Anecdotally id say conservative. If you are considering that surrounding. My husband works in GR. We often dont engage with people on politics if they start because its so conservative. My street is democratic leaning. The people in my industry, fashion who've relocated there are progressive. I just dont see or feel very progressive, as you describe it. They elected Justin Amash.

But 80% of the people i knew growing up are still conservative or have become conservative from being centrist before. I wish i thought it had changed there. Maybe the places ive lived and my industry made me ultra liberal.
Ive run into overt and veiled racism there that shocked me. Also very religious like expressing beliefs as if everyone agrees. It feels like a bubble to me, at least.

But grew up in west Michigan. Very conservative. My husband told me an in-law went to Lansing yesterday. Sigh. Theres a decent amount of grassroots angry they cant do yard work and go to cabins, going on.

They were preventing ambulances from bringing people to a hospital for potentially life-saving medical treatment. Those "protesters" should have been removed from blocking that area by any means necessary. The organizers and participants of this charade should also be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Stinking right wing filth like these vermin makes the Fred Phelps gang of lowlifes look like street performers in comparison.
