Hundreds of cars, trucks and SUVs descended on Michigan’s state capital Wednesday afternoon as part of a noisy protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far.

Dubbed “Operation Gridlock” and organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, the protest did just that – creating bumper-to-bumper traffic throughout downtown Lansing as demonstrators blasted their horns, waved Americans flags and hoisted placards deriding Whitmer’s orders and demanding that she reopen the state’s economy.

The lockdown measures are meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, but Whitmer has gone further than some other governors -- and the backlash in Michigan is among the most heated in the country.

I said it yesterday. I totally support these people and their right to protest. I don't agree but I support them. That being said. They need to get out on the streets and March. If they believe there is no threat then show that. You can't be afraid of a fine of arrest show up show out. If you believe it then cannot believe it doing it from the car sends quite the mixed message.

Yes the governors executive order makes it a misdemeanor offense.

But many protesters in American history were willing to risk civil disobedience penalties for what they believed in.

They're seeing their entire lives go down the drain. Their jobs, their businesses, their retirements . . . if I were out of work I'd probably protest as well.

Did you have a particular order in mind you view as meriting “operation gridlock”?

again, it's in the link and hopefully it clears up why they are in their cars:

“Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people,” Meshawn Maddock, an organizer of “Operation Gridlock” with the Michigan Conservative Coalition, told Fox News. “Every person has learned a harsh lesson about social distancing. We don’t need a nanny state to tell people how to be careful.”
The organizers of “Operation Gridlock” have asked anyone participating in Wednesday’s protest to “[d]isplay signs, make noise and be disruptive, but stay in your vehicle so that the ‘Whitmer police’ cannot say you are ignoring the 'social distancing' order.” They have also asked people not to carpool “because gas is cheap” and warned them to not drink too much liquids because they will not be able to access any public restrooms.

“We can get this rally done and stay within the social distancing guidelines,” Marian Sheridan, a co-founder of the Michigan Conservative Coalition, said in a statement
. “Citizens are frankly tired of being treated like babies. As adults, we now know what needs to be done to stay safe. We also believe the liberal attack on the economy is becoming a serious threat right now.

And someone needs to take her aside and let her know how seeds work.
