FACT CHECK: Hospitals Were NOT Blocked During ‘Operation Gridlock’ Protest at the Michigan Capitol

This is fake news circulating throughout social media.

Tens of thousands of cars descended upon the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing on Wednesday afternoon to protest Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s emergency edicts.

“Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people,” said event organizer Meshawn Maddock during a recent appearance on Fox News. “Every person has learned a harsh lesson about social distancing. We don’t need a nanny state to tell people how to be careful.”

The incredible success of the demonstration has prompted murmuring on social media regarding the Sparrow Hospital in Lansing being blocked. Many flooded the popular “Michiganders Against Excessive Quarantine” group and official page for the event on Facebook to spread their conspiracy theories.

“YOURE BLOCKING THE EMERGENCY ENTRANCE TO SPARROW YOU F**KIN DEGENERATES,” one angry commentator said.

“Members are currently blocking the ambulance entrance to the hospital, and standing outside of their cars, not following social distancing orders. Way to show how adult this really was,” another leftist commentator stated.

“You’re “exercising your freedom of speech” while silencing nurses and doctors who are pleading with you from the front line,” a different leftist exclaimed.

The Michigan Conservative Coalition, the primary organization behind the protest, issued a post after receiving word from a nurse who reported back to the group about what was happening at Sparrow Hospital.

“Put something out there that sparrow hospital entrances are NOT being blocked and that emergency vehicles can freely move throughout. Some people on fb are saying that the entrances are being blocked and emergency vehicles can’t get through. I know that’s not the case,” they wrote in a Facebook post.

Bridge Magazine reporter Riley Beggin confirmed that the MCC’s anecdote was in fact legitimate. She noted that the Sparrow entrance was not blocked off and remained freely accessible throughout the protest.

Sparrow spokesperson John Foren also told WLNS 6 News that there are no access problems and ambulances can “get in and out. There’s no problem.”

Liberals are desperate to demonize the patriots who showed up en masse to demonstrate that their rights will not be violated. The rally was planned after the governor issued an edict last week declaring gardening supplies a non-essential business, banning travel from one home to another in most cases, and extending her shutdown order until May 1.

The next protest against the forced shutdown is scheduled for Thurs., April 30, one day before it is scheduled to be lifted. Whitmer has reserved the right to extend the shutdown for an even longer period at her discretion.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

Published

on

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
