Hundreds of cars showed up in front of Michigan’s state legislature in Lansing protesting the extreme, stay-at-home measures implemented by their governor, Gretchen Whitmer.
According to reports, Whitmer has implemented one of the most dystopian lockdowns of any US state effectively shutting down the economy in all counties, including those reporting few or no cases of COVID-19.
Based on previous experience, Michiganders are concerned once gone, these jobs will not return.
In an interview with Fox News, Meshawn Maddock, an organizer of “Operation Gridlock”, stated:
“Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.”
Dozens of people not in attendance are Tweeting their support of the protests:
