Michigan Freeedumb


cjones05062020

OK, kids. Let’s go over it one more time. Flying a Confederate flag isn’t about your heritage, especially if you’re in Michigan. Unless…maybe you consider hate your heritage. If you’re at a rally supposedly to protest lockdown orders in your state, and your brought Swastikas, hate is your heritage. Your parents taught it to you and you’re probably teaching it to your kids.

Greg Gutfeld, one of the idiots at Fox News and an example of conservative humor was being serious when he argued…you’re gonna love this…that just because someone’s waving a flag with a Swastika on it, doesn’t mean they’re a Nazi.

I always thought that if you wave a flag, you believed in what it stood for. When a flag is waved, you look to see who salutes. Apparently, Republicans salute Swastikas. What’s the deal with Republicans apologizing and defending Nazis?

When you see a sticker for a sports team on a vehicle, say the Dallas Cowboys, then you’re probably pretty safe to assume the owner of the vehicle is a Cowboys fan and someone to avoid. If I see you flying Hitler’s flag, I’m going to assume you’re a Nazi. From my experience, most people who aren’t Nazis don’t want to be associated with or mistaken for Nazis…or the Dallas Cowboys.

Donald Trump defended the Michigan protesters by saying there were “very good people” among them. When Nazis marched in Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us,” and “Blood and soil,” he said there were “very fine people” among them.

These people in Michigan protesting for their rights to go outside, wave guns, eat at the Cheesecake Factory, are faking it. Their rights aren’t being violated. It’s not about those rights when you wave Confederate and Nazis flags. It’s not about your rights when you bring a noose made for lynching. It’s not about your rights when you bring Trump signs. And, it’s not about your rights when you bring guns. There’s been a larger effort to take away Cheesecake than your guns. You still have a constitutional right to own guns compensating for your tiny laughable excuse for a penis.

Seriously, what do Confederate flags, Swastikas, Trump signs, and nooses have to do with being told to stay home so we can protect each other from the coronavirus? There are some things that aren’t just about you. This is one of them and it’s pretty important. Get over yourself, you tiny-dicked Nazis.

These people are all about respecting the police and law enforcement…until you see a picture of an armed protester in Michigan’s capitol building shouting and spraying spittle in the face of a police officer. They’re all about your right to protest unless you’re a black football player kneeling during the national anthem. Colin Kaepernick never endangered anyone’s life by protesting. He only endangered his career.

Not only are these people hypocrites and haters, they’re selfish. They don’t believe the virus is as bad as the doctors, who work for Donald Trump, say it is. They believe the death count, that’s currently over 64,000, is embellished. And they don’t believe we need to abide by the guidelines the White House has put out…so they protest these stay-at-home guidelines endorsed by Donald Trump while waving signs supporting Donald Trump.

If you think this all-white crowd of Trump cultists and Nazis (I know. Redundant) are idiots, their “freeedom” sign confirms it. They didn’t just wave it at the protest. They hung it on the capitol building in Lansing above the protest. Was Mein Kampf full of typos? I don’t know because I never read it but I do know that American Nazis can’t spell. Have you seen Trump’s twitter account?

Maybe Gutfeld is right that waving a flag doesn’t mean you actually believe in what it stands for. These guys keep waving American flags but I don’t see anything American about them.

I hate Michigan Nazis.

  1. If Trump had not been forced to call a lockdown, these people would be protesting that they were not allowed to stay home and social distance. They don’t care about a cause per se, they just care about protesting. If they spent more time protecting their families and communities, maybe they wouldn’t have so much time for protesting.

  3. “Seriously, what do Confederate flags, Swastikas, Trump signs, and nooses have to do with being told to stay home so we can protect each other from the coronavirus?” That’s a great question. I’m sure they don’t have a good answer.

    And then you look at the photos in the statehouse. A sea of white faces. Yeah, if those protesters were black or hispanic, they would’ve never gotten that close to the doors. And including those nazism references in posters, nooses, the stars and bars… those organized protesters were definitely not even TRYING to speak for everyone’s right to work. It’s a tantrum with heavy hardware, just something to do.

  4. “ I hate Michigan Nazis.”

    This raises the question:
    “Are any of these State House Despicables (SHDs… not to be, though easily, confused with STDs) NOT actually Michigan Citizens? That is, are any of these stupid idiots actually (slightly not so stupid) Professional Provocateurs who are paid to travel around the country rallying the Local Yokels to coagulate into these Mini Ki45*TF Hate Rallies Without Ki45*TF (MKHRWKs, not to be, though easily, confused with animated piles of shit) ?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    1. Except, he never called those tiki torch losers, fine people. He expressly stated they should looked down on as the scum that they are. He was talking about the people that showed to support the keeping on the statue, not all of them were nazis, just regular folks…on both sides of the issue.

      You guys support a tyrannical government which went after General Michael Flynn. They lied and coerced him into a bogus confession and now that he’s found innocent you people are silent.

      1. From the whole transcripts; source: https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-trump-charlottesville-transcript-20170815-story.html

        TRUMP: Well, I think the driver of the car is a disgrace to himself, his family and his country. And that is — you can call it terrorism

        TRUMP: OK. Good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what? It’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.

        TRUMP: No, no. There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I’m sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people — neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest, because you know — I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit. So, I only tell you this, there are two sides to a story.

      1. According to staffers, he only condemned the terrorists after pressure and later said it was the “worst speech he had ever given” and he wasn’t going to do it again.
        Plus, those statues they were defending were only put up during the era of the KKK and Civil Rights. Look that up. The statue in Charlottesville went up in 1924. It was commissioned in 1917. The second Klan resurgence was in 1915.

        Also, “very fine people” DON’T MARCH WITH NAZIS.

      3. Can you not read Dr. Rex? In his speech he says the neo-nazis were terrorists and completely disgraced individuals that should be condemned. Right there on that day, at that location, Pres. Trump condemned the neo-nazis.

  7. Not *my* avatar – wordpress chose it for me. And DON’T get me started on Nazis . . . my father was in several Nazi slave labor camps; my parents’ Jewish friends were murdered; any Gentile man married to a Jewish woman was castrated; my mother ate leather shoes to survive Holland’s time under the Nazis; my father ate grass.

    So, what’s YOUR experience with Nazis and fascism, hmmmm?

Your parents had to eat shoe leather and grass and yet I’m pretty sure you’ve called people like me (freedom loving Americans) MAGAts, the same dehumanizing insect comparing verbiage of the nazis…wow

  9. A bit late to the race [to truth], but this arrived today from WaPo FactChecker, and I hope you’ll forgive the length:

    A search for the ‘very fine people’ at the 2017 Charlottesville rally

    The violence in Charlottesville in the summer of President Trump’s first year in office continues to be a flash point in the presidential campaign, with former vice president Joe Biden making Trump’s response to Charlottesville a central part of his argument that Trump is unfit to be president. The Fact Checker decided to investigate a key talking point by the president — that “very fine people” who “felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee” were among the protestors.

    We studied hours of video tape posted on Facebook and obtained videos that had been deleted by a militia group. Trump said there were people quietly protesting on Friday night but there were only neo-Nazis and white supremacists in the Friday night rally. As for Saturday, there were white supremacists, there were counterprotesters —and there were heavily armed anti-government militias. There’s no suggestion in the videos the militias traveled to Charlottesville because of the Lee statue. “We had long guns. We had pistols. We were pelted with bricks, and could have f—ing used deadly force. But we didn’t,” one militia leader declares in a video obtained by The Fact Checker. “We had the justification to use deadly force that day and mow people f—ing down. But we didn’t.”

    The evidence shows there were no quiet protesters against removing the statue that weekend. The militias arrived in Charlottesville heavily armed and, by their own account, were prepared to use deadly force — because of a desire to insert themselves in a dangerous situation that, in effect, pitted them against the foes of white supremacists. Trump earned Four Pinocchios.
