Video of the Day: Gretchen ‘Lockdown’ Whitmer Ignores Social Distancing, Leads ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Protest

Scratch a liberal, find a hypocrite.  On Thursday, video was posted to social media showing Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan’s Democrat Dictator, cleverly disguised as a Governor, leading a protest march chanting the now-debunked “hands up, don’t shoot” mantra.

As one can see in the video below, she does have something — perhaps a handkerchief — over her face, but she’s ignoring all the rules regarding social distancing.  Apparently, she seems to think the rules don’t apply to her or the other people she’s protesting with.

The tweet by Detroit reporter Jenn Schanz reads: “@GovWhitmer @LtGovGilchrist and Bishop Charles Ellis lead a group of marchers in Detroit honoring the life of . Marchers call out ‘hands up, don’t shoot!”‘

As Twitchy reminds us:

As a lot of people are pointing out, “Hands up, don’t shoot” might be a Black Lives Matter staple, but George Floyd wasn’t shot, and the Obama Justice Department determined that Michael Brown didn’t have his hands up but was shot while rushing at police officers.

Reaction is pretty much what you might expect:

Yes, it’s the same one, as we noted here.  It’s also the same Gretchen Whitmer who came under fire for her “Hitler-like” governance during the pandemic.  You see, rules are just for little people — the proletariat — not those who carry liberal privilege, like her and her ideological allies.

You’ll also remember, this is the same state whose attorney general, Dana Nessel, melted down when Trump was seen not wearing a mask when he visited Ford.

That’s pretty much the size of it…
