Well, I for one support thier 2nd Amendment rights, but part of me thinks this is being spun to further divide people by race. 🤔 I don't know.
Just something about it.
From the article:


"A Michigan lawmaker returned to the state Capitol on Wednesday with an armed security detail following a coronavirus lockdown protest at the building last week attended by white supremacists and militia groups."


I don't recall seeing anything resembling that, but I wasn't there either, so let's just roll with it, right?


"Rep. Sarah Anthony, a Democrat whose district is in the capital city, Lansing, told Yahoo News in an interview that her security detail, made up of local black and Latino activists, came together because the armed protesters bearing white supremacist symbols represented a “different level of terror."


Well that certainly was an interesting routine of mental gymnastics. I hope she didn't pull anything with that stretch.

Hopefully, this will blow over and we can forget about it. But I have a hankering suspicion, this won't end here. I feel this will be manipulated to no end.
Thoughts anyone?

If our 'lawmakers' can't even have the intelligence to do their due dilligence in tracking down who is exactly protesting, what hope do we have for this country?
The so called swastikas and hate signs were found to not be racially motivated, as is obvious to any adult who looks at the photos. It's a little something called hyperbole. Or if you like, symbolism.

I think its time America stopped separating people by colour or race except for descriptions for police purposes, and started calling people Americans. I've only noticed this so much in America, it looks like you've ALWAYS been divided regardless of civil rights or protests. Until blacks themselves stop referring to themselves as African American there will always be a divide...in my opinion

Hey, just like the five year old, if you say it enough times, it comes true!
So, if the media, and these erm….. people representing us say it happened, it did!

Even if it really didn't.

I am so proud of my state right now. We are "P**%(#@ off the governor, and all the "sallys" in our government.

"OMG, they had guns. They were racists, terrorists, some kind of ist, dammit"

Typical hypocrite...she can have her people with guns, but I can't have mine. Just like every leftist that has bodyguards.
I may become a hermit in a fire tower over all this if it weren't for my two beautiful grand daughters.

This is just a weak, lame, small-minded attempt at portraying anyone against draconian evil government as racist.

I don't expect insight or an understanding of inference, from a group people who are motivated by deception.

Don't let facts get in the way of a good race argument now. That doesn't suit the narrative.

Pretty sure we can all guess.
Without double standards, they'd have none at all.

I hope not, for too many reasons to list.
I'd really like to see this happen with as little violence as possible. We must try to be decent, at least. But that said, if the SHTF in that way...I hope blue areas of the country have strong stomachs.
