The 28th episode of the LOL Podcast is posted!
I have plenty to say regarding how right-wing forces in Michigan are attempting to shif blame from President Donald Trump’s gross incompetence and mismanagement of the coronavirus outbreak, and place it Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
These forces, such as the extreme Michigan Chamber of Commerce, are pushing a narrative that Whitmer’s stay-at-home order to curve the spread of this deadly virus is worse than the virus itself.
If that means some have to die to save Dear Leader, then so be it.
The Michigan Republican Leadership is willing to play this game. They pander to the fringe right-wing elements of Dear Leader’s base, which is now the Republican Party base.
Michigan Republicans stoke fear into The Cult, and The Cult responds using mob tactics, armed with guns and Confederate flags.
And Michigan Republicans use obvious dog whistles to The Cult by wearing a Confederate flag mask on the State Senate floor, and allowing gun-toting followers to walk menacingly around the Senate chamber.
Directly above me, men with rifles yelling at us. Some of my colleagues who own bullet proof vests are wearing them. I have never appreciated our Sergeants-at-Arms more than today. #mileg pic.twitter.com/voOZpPYWOs

This is the game the right-wing is playing. We must stay engaged and keep fighting, like State Senator Erika Geiss is doing. She’s not going to let Michigan Republicans resort to their coded racist tactics to bully Lansing Democrats.
We must follow her lead.
Take the battle to them!
