Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel Denies Karl Manke Is a Hero

If you don’t hate tyranny yet, you must not have heard what the regime of Michigan despot Gretchen Whitmer has done to a 77-year-old barber in Owosso named Karl Manke, who just wants the government to leave him alone and let him earn a living.

He shut his business down as commanded in the name of Flattening the Curve, but as time dragged on and it became clear that this lunacy could go on indefinitely, he had to reopen to put food on the table. A judge refused to shut down his shop again without first holding a hearing. So Whitmer’s regime took another approach: they suspended his business and professional licenses.

You might have been wondering why a barber needs licenses to cut your hair. Now you know. It is so bureaucrats can take the licenses away if he gives them trouble.

You can’t expect Whitmer to like a guy who sounds so little like a Democrat:

“I don’t need the governor to be my mother,” [Manke] said. “I have one. God bless her, she’s gone now. I don’t need another mother. I can make these adult decisions myself.”

He says he doesn’t want handouts from Big Government. He wants to be left alone so that he can work.

Karl Manke is what this country has always been about. He is a hero.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is an LGBT militant who has proclaimed that it is racist to complain about COVID-19 tyranny. She disagrees that Karl Manke is a hero. She doesn’t dare have him arrested, given his immense popularity, but she has the courage to denounce him as “selfish” (sound familiar?) and to proclaim that he is not a hero or a patriot:

Dana Nessel is in no position to tell us who our heroes should be. She is no more credible than King George when it comes to determining who is a patriot.

Don’t expect Whitmer and Nessel to back down, no matter how much their vendetta against Manke exposes them to the public as rotten and tyrannical. He personifies what it is the purpose of progressives to destroy.

Michigan Lockdown: Barbara Shop No, Sex Club Yes

When a government exceeds its proper limitations, you can easily tell what kind of people those running it favor. This has never been truer than in Michigan under Wuhan coronavirus lockdown.

The Whitmer Administration has waged a war (which she is fortunately losing) to shut down Karl Manke, a patriot who just wants to be left alone to make a living. Too bad Manke didn’t open a gay nightclub like Club Tabu instead of a barber shop; Gauleiter Gretchen would have left him alone.

Megan Fox writes:

[A] gay swinger’s club with “glory holes” is being allowed to operate under her nose in Lansing while she aims her business-killing death ray on 77-year-old barber Karl Manke for giving haircuts. …

I guess group sex is an “essential” activity in the Democrat-run state of Michigan.

Unlike Karl Manke’s business, Club Tabu does not appear to be taking steps to prevent the spread of disease. No one with an aversion to disease is like to frequent the establishment anyway.

If Gretchen Whitmer can send six officers to serve Karl Manke orders to shut down his business for violating her orders, but she can’t rouse herself to sent the SWAT team into a place that only exists for group sex, I think it’s clear that none of these orders are about public health or the transfer of disease. Where are you more likely to get a disease? At a barbershop or in a sex dungeon?

Let’s not single out Whitmer. Here’s what the Holy Oracle Dr Fauci himself says about hooking up with strangers on apps like Tinder, Bumble, or Grindr during the repressive lockdown he personifies:

“If you’re willing to take a risk — and you know, everybody has their own tolerance for risks — you could figure out if you want to meet somebody.”

Fauci then confirmed that he knows the apps are not so much about meeting people as having anonymous sex with them:

“If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk.”

Just don’t do anything reckless and “selfish” like cut people’s hair, or you will face government wrath like Manke and Lindsey Graham.

Michigan voters must be okay with all this, or they wouldn’t tolerate someone like Dana Nessel as their Attorney General:

Nessel has petulantly and childishly announced that the President of the United States is not welcome in the state of Michigan. She is threatening to bring charges against Ford for letting Trump tour a plant without wearing a mask.

Then again, maybe Michigan voters have had enough of the blend of arrogance, arbitrary tyranny, and degeneracy offered by Whitmer et al. We’ll know in November.

Midland Flood Caused by Whitmer Administration?

Gretchen Whitmer’s over-the-top COVID-19 tyranny, which includes continuing to impose the virus on nursing homes even as the death toll from this policy mounts, is not the only area in which liberal rule has had catastrophic results in Michigan. The “500-year flood” resulting from the failure of two dams in Midland has been national news. Guess who may be to blame?

Via the Detroit News:

After federal regulators pulled the license of a Midland County dam because of the high risk it posed to the public in 2018, it ceded oversight to state regulators.

But with less stringent state safety rules to protect people and property, Michigan regulators turned their attention, instead, to the protection of delicate underwater life.

Governance is all about priorities.

[S]tate regulators appear to have focused increasingly on what they said was the company’s unauthorized drawdown of winter water levels of Wixom Lake, which they said created a danger to freshwater mussels.

You can see why liberal bureaucrats would have a special affection for something squishy soft and slimy like a mussel.

The state accused Boyce Hydro of oppressing mussels by lowering Wixom Lake water levels.

Boyce argued that it lowered water levels in part to conform to federal protocols because of the known threat of a dam failure in a substantial storm. In a statement late Wednesday, Boyce claimed it was pressured by the state as recently as April to raise Wixom Lake levels in order to appease shoreline residents.

In light of the dam failures, this does not appear to have been a good idea.

In comes our old friend, Whitmer’s militantly lesbian sidekick, Attorney General Dana Nessel:

Nessel filed suit against [Boyce Hydro manager Lee] Mueller in Ingham County Circuit Court seeking more than $25,000 fines and fees to compensate for the death of thousands of freshwater mussels that occurred when the company “dramatically lowered the level of Wixom Lake for an extended period in 2018 and 2019” via the Edenville Dam without authorization.

What the allegedly dead molluscs would spend the money on is unclear.

Nessel’s suit was preceded by a federal suit filed by Mueller on April 29, arguing the state had no “validated scientific or other technical evidence” showing Mueller’s actions directly contributed to the mussels’ deaths.

Mueller argued the $261 million to $412 million lawsuit the state planned to file violated his constitutional liberty and property rights through the “arbitrary, capricious and ‘shock-the-conscience’ conduct” of state officials.

“Arbitrary” and “capricious” are words often associated with the Whitmer Administration. Recall that Gauleiter Gretchen forbade Michiganders from buying garden seeds because COVID-19.

This dollar store despot could be the de facto POTUS in January.

Look out, Lee Mueller; Whitmer and Nessel are on the hunt for a scapegoat:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel said Wednesday they would explore every legal recourse to pursue those responsible [for the flooding].

Somehow I doubt they will find themselves responsible.

COVID-19 Is Racist, Part II

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel thinks the Wuhan coronavirus is racist against blacks. AP agrees:

Democratic lawmakers and community leaders in cities hard-hit by the pandemic have been sounding the alarm over what they see as a disturbing trend of the virus killing African Americans at a higher rate…

Of course, a virus can’t really be racist. America is racist:

A history of systemic racism and inequity in access to health care and economic opportunity has made many African Americans far more vulnerable to the virus.

Let’s see how the media distorts a story to reinforce black oppression:

In Michigan, more than half of the deaths where race data was collected were black residents; the state’s population is 14% black.

The blacks in Michigan are largely concentrated in Detroit. Densely populated big cities are more vulnerable to the virus. But saying the virus disproportionately affects urban Americans doesn’t promote the Cultural Marxist agenda.

Even analyzing by the area affected, blacks are said to have a higher mortality rate from the Chinese virus than whites. No doubt there are various reasons for this. Racism on the part of whites who bend over backward to bestow favoritism upon blacks is not among them. An obvious reason is that blacks are more prone to asthma and other underlying conditions that make the virus more dangerous.

In Chicago, another reason is that some blacks believe their race makes them as immune to the virus as it does to personal responsibility. The city’s black mayor says so:

“There’s a myth in black Chicago that black folks can’t get coronavirus,” [Lori Lightfoot] explained, “and we are doing everything we can to disabuse people of that notion.” …

The myth that blacks are immune to coronavirus appeared to have started as a meme and a joke on social media. …

Similar claims worsened the death rate among African-Americans in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to local authorities.

If they can believe that whites are oppressing them after decades of ever escalating Affirmative Action, they might believe anything.

COVID-19 Is Racist, Part I

The current crisis is not about a virus. It is about race. Because according to Democrats, everything is about race. Specifically, everything is about promoting the narrative that blacks are oppressed by wicked whites.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel takes point in the attack:

Nessel posted a pair of tweets declaring that African Americans are “treated like garbage” in terms of equal opportunity and access to healthcare — and mocking “white folks” for supposedly being “outraged because they can’t go golfing.”

White people die of the Wuhan coronavirus too. But Black Lives Matter. The corollary is that white lives do not matter. At least not to Democrat pols.

Nessel isn’t even black — unless by denouncing whites a Jewish woman can qualify as an honorary black. She does earn oppression points by being openly homosexual though, even being “married” to another woman.

Here she explains why COVID-19 = racist oppression:

“[Because] when you advocate against universal healthcare, a living wage, paid sick leave, public education and environmental regulations, the virus disproportionately impacts communities of color and black Americans get sick and die at exponentially higher rates.”

Support every plank of the liberal platform or you are a racist with the blood of sacred Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation on your hands. The ChiCom virus proves it.

Who Are the Real Fascists?

“Fascist” is a favorite pejorative of progressives. They use it to discredit anyone to their right. In light of the way liberal Democrat governors have exploited ChiCom virus hysteria to inflict arbitrary tyranny (e.g., Kate Brown, Tony Evers, Roy Cooper, Gretchen Whitmer, Janet Mills, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, J. B. Pritzker, Phil Murphy, Tom Wolf), it will be harder for them to use the term with a straight face in the future. But then, given their apparently infinite capacity for hypocrisy, they will probably manage.

Jason Siler illustrates who the real fascists are by documenting what they do to their victims, including the patriots Karl Manke and Lindsey Graham:

True enough, just as the Democrats’ Green New Deal is not really about saving the planet from the ever-fluctuating climate, Flattening the Curve is about flattening freedom and economic independence, not the ChiCom virus. Well-meaning, competent authorities would have protected the vulnerable rather than placing the general population under house arrest and forbidding much of it from earning an income.

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Post–COVID-19 Road?

Probably because it was “selfish,” like Shelley Luther and Karl Manke.

Someone who comes across like a typical Democrat governor explains ChiCom coronavirus policy as it applies to chickens:

Big Government Comes Down on Salon Owner Lindsey Graham

We can add Lindsey Graham to the pantheon of COVID-19 era patriots, next to Shelley Luther and Karl Manke. Authorities have clobbered her with a $14,000 fine for trying to feed her family by opening her Salem, Oregon business, Glamour Salon:

Lindsay Graham is facing the hefty fine after opening her business and defying the governor’s stay-at-home order. She says her lawyers met with Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials and they will be issuing her a citation early next week.

Graham is aghast at what ChiCom virus hysteria has revealed about the bureauweenies who rule over us:

“If you can possibly believe this, on May 7 Child Protective Services showed up at my home. They questioned my husband and I, they questioned my child without me present, they searched our home,” Graham said outside her salon on Friday. “And I’ve never expected such a violent, aggressive, vindictive thing could have ever been done to me or my family.”

The $14,000 fine inflicted by Oregon Occupational Safety and Health has been confirmed.

Conservative Resurgence has more on the unconscionable bullying of Lindsey Graham:

In case anyone is still pretending that it matters, the Wuhan coronavirus is not a significant problem in Oregon. There have been a reported 137 deaths in the entire state. No doubt more people are dying from choking on food.
