Operation Gridlock Protest In Lansing Michigan… Excessive Quarantine Rules Violate Citizen’s Rights

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on April 15, 2020

Protesters gathered in Lansing Michigan outside of the state’s capitol protesting the stay at home order from Governor Gretchen Whitmer that also includes bans on travel and sales of nonessential items

Operation Gridlock which was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition coordinated the protest. Individuals gathered around the capitol holding signs while inside their vehicles. Some people even got out of their vehicles and gathered around the building holdings signs as well.

“We are all concerned for those afflicted with COVID-19. Yes, many of the personal behaviors we have been reminded to use are good practices. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Stay home if you are sick. That said, Michiganders are fed up!”
– Michigan Conservative Coalition

The order which went into effect last weekend includes limiting what types of items can be sold in stores, banning travel from one residence to an other including vacation and rental properties

People who gathered to protests say that the stay at home order is a violation of their Constitutional Rights.

“We can get this rally done and stay within the social distancing guidelines. 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. Join us in Lansing. We need to stop the madness and have a plan to re-open Michigan’s economy before it is too late.”
– Marian Sheridan, Michigan Conservative Coalition

The order in Michigan gained attention across the nation when Meghan McCain, the co-host of the view posted a photo on Twitter showing a Michigan Walmart preventing the sale of a child seat.

“Guess it’s good I don’t live in Michigan – otherwise how would I transport my child home from the hospital @GovWhitmer? Are you going to ban cribs next? Being pregnant during this time is insanely stressful – we are all doing our best. Shame on you for doing this @GovWhitmer.”
– Meghan McCain

The Michigan Governor did respond to McCain’s tweet by saying that the order did not include car seats as a nonessential item.
