Gov. Whitmer becomes target of dozens of threats on private Facebook groups ahead of armed rally

Dozens of angry Michiganders, fueled by conspiracy theories and disinformation about the coronavirus, are promoting violence and mobilizing armed rallies against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Facebook, in violation of the social media companyís policies.

Metro Times gained access to four private Facebook groups that can only be seen by approved members. The pages, which have a combined 400,000 members, are filled with paranoid, sexist, and grammar-challenged rants, with members encouraging violence and flouting the governorís social-distancing orders.

5. It's okay to promote violence and armed rallies against a governor on Facebook.

Just as long as you don't let the Lincoln Project try to run the "Mourning in America" ad.
