No no. It's BLM protesters and AntiFa were supposed to be afraid of.

How long 'til Drumpf wades in with some variation of "good people?"After all, their aim was to 'liberate' Michigan from the hated Whitmer.

Trump sycophant Jason Miller:
“If we want to talk about hatred—then Governor Whitmer, go look in the mirror! I mean, the fact that she wakes up every day with such hatred in her heart towards President Trump.”

ETA: How dare Whitmer criticize Trump's part in encouraging this militia group planning to "liberate Michigan" by kidnapping her and "liberating" the Michigan government?

Governor Whitmer's rebuke to Trump. Good speech although I think she would have a greater impact if it was shorter.

No, most people are infected with herpes (the lip sores) as children, by family members. Most people are asymptomatic.

One on the left looks like he's tried to add a 'stash just so he stops being mistaken for vaguely middle eastern.
You could probably troll him to tears just by asking what country he's from.

Some of them are in the “Riots, looting, vandalism, etc.” thread desperately wishing the narrative would shift to focus on the tragedy of broken windows.

However, even if they had 1000 people involved, then that would still not be nearly enough to overthrow Michigan.

Yes, first reports said 6.

They ended up arresting 13.

And yes, I agree. That's not nearly enough.

I was joking, as well as informing.

I heard on the Internet (TM) that they were going to put her on trial for treason and then execute her -- presuming she was convicted I guess.

Twenty-five states prohibit teaching, demonstrating or practicing in the use of firearms or “techniques” capable of causing injury or death for use during a civil disorder. Eighteen states prohibit either the false assumption of the duties of public officials, including law-enforcement officials, or the wearing of uniforms similar to military uniforms.

All these laws point to a single conclusion: There is no right in any state for groups of individuals to arm themselves and organize either to oppose or augment the government.

Trump was just tweeting *more* hate against her. I think he is hoping some other group actually is competent enough to pull it off thus creating enough disorder to throw the election into doubt.
