OP-ED: Armed Protesters In Michigan Force MI Reps To Wear Bulletproof Vests
Hordes of armed snowflake Covidiots in Michigan are storming the Capitol building, forcing Democratic reps to don protective bulletproof vests. Democratic State Senator Dayna Polehanki revealed the decision some of her colleagues were making when sharing a picture of armed protesters on Twitter on Thursday.
“Directly above me, men with rifles yelling at us. Some of my colleagues who own bulletproof vests are wearing them. I have never appreciated our Sergeants-at-Arms more than today.”

Video footage captured inside the Capitol showed an army of deplorables raising guns into the air as they shouted chants of “let us in” outside the House chamber. Not surprisingly, most of them were not wearing face coverings or practicing social distancing.
After the armed mob got into the Michigan statehouse they made their way to the chamber doors.
Where they shouted: “LET US IN!!”
This is not a protest, or peaceful.

Once again, these Covidiots fail to realize that they’re only exasperating the public health crisis with their continuous defiance of the stay-in-shelter order, making it harder to lift it in the weeks ahead. The protest was named “American Patriot Rally” and was organized by Michigan United for Liberty group. They are asking for legislators to reopen businesses to put people back to work and boost the economy. According to NBC News, Michigan police said that the protesters are legally allowed to carry guns in Michigan as long as it’s done with “lawful intent” and the weapon is visible.
Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s state of emergency order was expected to expire at the end of Thursday. It seems she would require approval from legislators to extend the order, although the Republican-controlled legislature has not said if they would approve an extension of the order or not.
