Republicans go with a “I know you are, but what am I?” response to the insurrection of January 6. Yes, Donald Trump’s MAGA mob stormed the Capitol and tried to overturn a presidential election, but what if Democrats did worse, like speaking in public sometimes by raising their voices?
Michigan Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Tudor Dixon, yes, he’s a real person, not a character from me. “Beverly Hills Teens” reboot script – commemorated the first anniversary of the Trump insurrection with some clever slurs on social media. She posted a video tagging governor gretchen “Great Gretch” Whitmer “The Original Michigan Insurrectionary”.
Now, suppose, just for the moment, that Tudor Dixon is a dishonest person. In such a scenario, which is very likely, he would have selectively edited a two-minute video containing clips of a 2012 mostly peaceful protest at the State Capitol in Lansing. Thousands of union supporters had come forward to protest the Republican-controlled Legislature’s attempt to pass a right to
The then Senate Minority Leader, Whitmer, is seen yelling, “Let’s fight! Is that you? “Now, when the Democrats say,” We are going to fight, “it is almost always a metaphor that does not go beyond a Republican obstructionism in the Senate. When the MAGA GOP says:” We are going to fight, “the people ends up dead and feces are literally smeared on the Capitol walls. There is a considerable difference.
Here are some actual footage from the 2012 protest because we didn’t tie in with the Tudor Dixon bullshit.
The Detroit Free Press reports:
After shouting, protesters filled the roundabout, and as officers on horseback and in riot gear tried to control those outside, police closed the doors to prevent further entrances. The video, which Laura Ingraham featured last week on Fox News, says Whitmer then “opened the window of his office on the ground floor of the Capitol to let them in.”
During an appearance in Laura Ingraham’s Hour of White Power, Tudor Dixon called Whitmer the “queen of hypocrisy” because she apparently once supported the protesters who stormed the Capitol. This is all a lot of bogus equivalency energy, but that’s how Fox News rolls. Conservative media will spend this year minimizing the shock of January 6 as they unearth 10-year-old skeletons involving Democrats. One would suppose that if Big Gretch was a violent insurrectionist, the Republicans might have brought him up before last week.
Republicans are rolling in the mud with the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and Matt Gaetz, and they want to lure Democrats with them so no one is clean. It is obvious and pathetic. For one thing, no Democrat has claimed that Americans do not have a constitutional right to protest. Trump lovers were free to publicly complain that Joe Biden had beaten up their false prophet, but that was not enough for the seditious. They stormed the Capitol in an illegal effort to overturn the results of a free and fair election.
But we know all this. Here’s the part of the post where you’re probably wondering, “Who the hell is Tudor Dixon and why does he think he can rule better than Big Gretch?” Well, Tudor Dixon is a mother and an entrepreneur, just like Yr. Editrix. She is the host of “America’s Voice Live” on the Real America’s Voice cable network, runs an advertising business for high school students and has, like no other, political experience to qualify her for the position she seeks. But nevertheless, She believes in “Common Sense Solutions to Everyday Michigan Problems.”
You too offered this molasses when declaring your candidacy:
“We must free Michiganians from lockdown and unleash them to innovate, work, and reap the rewards of their labor,” said Dixon. “We must accelerate our students’ learning, not stop or slow down their education. We must focus on solving big problems like reducing crime, increasing economic opportunity for all, and making high-quality health care more affordable and accessible.”
I can’t wait for the debates – at this point, I’m expected to lose the primary to a former Detroit police chief, but never say die! – when Tudor Dixon literally starts turning, turning, turning towards freedom.
“Free Michigan” is a not-so-subtle reference to the 2020 anti-lockdown protests. Later that year, More than 12 people were arrested for allegedly conspiring to kidnap Whitmer and bring her to trial for treason. Trump still never gives up in stochastic terrorism that pointed in their direction. It would appear that Tudor Dixon is the reigning monarch of Michigan hypocrisy.
