Controversial Gov. Whitmer Renews Lockdown, Irking Michiganders

Whitmer has been criticized and targeted in the past for her lockdown regulations.

Michigan has been a hotbed of controversy as of late, with the people of the Wolverine State refusing to quietly comply with coronavirus lockdowns and regulations.

When Governor Gretchen Whitmer first announced that there would be heavy-handed precautions put upon her citizens, concerned individuals stormed the State Capitol armed with rifles.

It was later discovered that several of those involved in the siege at the Capitol were also plotting to kidnap Whitmer, possibly blow up a highway bridge, and hold a week of televised executions.

Despite the threats that she has received, however, Governor Whitmer is again pushing for an enhanced lockdown to be renewed for 12 more days.

On November 15, Whitmer announced the state was regressing despite her relentless coronavirus orders and shuttered in-person dining as well as in-person learning for high schoolers.

Whitmer also restricted other activities, such as group exercise classes. Casinos, movie theaters, and bowling alleys were also mandated to be closed.

High school sports were canceled, while professional and college athletics were not.

Today, she said she was lengthening that “pause.”

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) said families should not gather indoors, “and only two households may gather inside, with strict protocols recommended.”

Whitmer recommended individuals wear masks “consistently whenever they are inside with individuals not in their household, and are recommended to pick only a small group to see regularly.”

The regulations come as health experts have begun to warn Americans that Christmas could be a dicey time in terms of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that there’s no guarantee that it will be safe to gather for the all-important holiday.
