3. It is who they are

It's the republican army of hate, violence, and ignorance. It's who they are and she should say so.

6. It is a pretty good depiction of the GOP here in Texas.

4. People who object to the lockdown aren't just objecting to the lockdown.

They are carrying a whole lot of other right-wing baggage having nothing to do with quarantines and wearing masks in public. Have you ever wondered why we don't see PoC participating in these demonstrations? Why aren't they complaining about being out of work or having to wear masks? When restaurants shut down who loses their jobs? Waiters, waitresses, cooks, busboys and cleaners, that's who. Why are the protesters complaining that they can't get their nails done or eat at restaurants, while the people who do nails and work in restaurants - many of whom are PoC - are not also demonstrating? Just apart from the fact that a black man who showed up with an AR-15 would be promptly arrested if not shot, it's obvious that these protests are about a lot more than they claim to be, and none of it is good.

5. Yes we are

Between that disgusting display ( both of them) in Lansing and then the people who shot and killed a security guard in flint over a face mask and now some yahoo who wiped his nose on a store employee’s shirt because he told he needed a face mask, I think they represent exactly what we are becoming. Maybe we’re not there yet, but we’re well on our way. I’ve seen too many confederate flags hanging from houses in these small towns up north and these idiots driving around with big trump banners on their pickups yelling at people. This is simply a harbinger of what life in Michigan is becoming. Maybe, hopefully, when Biden wins (please,please,please) they will crawl back under the rocks they crawled out of,but I wouldn’t count on it.
