Rashida Tlaib: Michigan Protesters Crippled by Democrat Economic Shutdown are Guilty of ‘Corporate Greed’

Tlaib is angry about a planned protest on Wednesday.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is accusing protesters angry with Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s lock down of the state as being guilty of “corporate greed.”

Tlaib made the insulting comment in response to “Operation Gridlock,” a protest created by conservatives and independents who are angry about Whitmer’s extension of the stay-at-home order that they feel is unnecessary to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Tlaib is referencing a smear job by Gov. Whitmer, who used a state-of-emergency address to denigrate pro-freedom protesters and tie them to the DeVos family without evidence.

“I think it’s really inappropriate for a sitting member of the United States president’s cabinet to be waging political attacks on any governor,” Whitmer said on Monday. “I think they should disavow it and encourage people to stay home and stay safe.”

A DeVos family spokesman made it clear that Whitmer was lying, and the DeVos family – including Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos – has nothing to do with the protest scheduled for Wednesday, Apr. 15 at Noon.

“Contrary to the governor’s statements, the DeVos family hasn’t spent a dime on this protest nor has it offered prior support to the organizing entity,” said Nick Wasmiller, a spokesman for the DeVos family.

“The DeVos family, however, understands the frustration of fellow Michiganders as elements of the governor’s top-down approach appear to go beyond public safety. Michigan deserves competent governance, not baseless attacks,” he added.

The protest is being organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, a pro-Trump organization that feels Whitmer’s latest extension of her emergency powers has gone too far. They are urging people to attend the protest around the State Capitol in their vehicles, as they may be subject to Draconian fines of up to $1000 if they leave their vehicles, to create a traffic jam to send a strong message to the Governor and to the state legislature that enough is enough.

“Michigan’s typical small business owners obey laws, but they may not notice the progressive agenda being pushed by our radical leftist Governor Whitmer,” said Rosanne Ponkowski, president of the Michigan Conservative Coalition, in a press release.

“Governor Whitmer will put you out of business before allowing mere citizens to be responsible for their own behavior. That is madness,” Ponkowski added.

The Facebook page for the event has hosted a lot of heated debates between Michigan residents who have succumbed to the mass hysteria and people who refuse to surrender their freedoms due to media-induced fear. Tlaib’s demagoguery is not likely to keep people away from this protest.

Minneapolis City Government Urges for Victims to Submit to Criminals as They Defund the Police

This is what anarcho-tyranny looks like.

The city of Minneapolis is urging citizens to submit to criminals and comply with their requests as they get ready to defund the police.

A directive issued by the city gave residents “robbery prevention tips” that include handing over purses, wallets and cell phones to criminals. The memo essentially suggests total submission to robbers as a way to stay safe.

Minneapolis has turned into a hellscape following the death of serial felon drug addict George Floyd during a police encounter, which has sparked race riots there and across the country.

Big League Politics has reported on how Minneapolis is moving to defund the police during a time when crime and lawlessness are spiraling out of control:

The Minneapolis City Council has formally adopted a resolution pledging to replace the city’s police department with a “transformative model of public safety” on Friday. All 13 members of the city council voted for the symbolic resolution, passing it unanimously.

Left-wing city council member Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Democratic Attorney General Keith Ellison, originally proposed defunding the city’s police department last week, as widespread riots and looting engulfed the city in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The rest of the City Council was quick to follow him in endorsing the vague proposal.

Friday’s vote didn’t lay out a concrete plan to replace the city’s police department, instead broadly pledging to implement an alternative that’s yet to be fully imagined. The Council is planning to spend one year in a dialogue “with every willing community member in Minneapolis” to discern the structure of a new community-based model of public safety.

The city’s establishment Democrat mayor continues to oppose a wholesale abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department, but nine votes of the city council is sufficient to veto any attempt he would make to prevent the proposal. Mayor Jacob Frey was viciously booed away from a meeting of Black Lives Matter protestors after refusing to endorse the defunding of the police last week.

Minneapolis incurred more than $55 million in damages from the widespread race riots that engulfed the city in late May, and the city government is already hoping that the federal government will provide a generous bailout to mitigate the costs of the damages. Some of the businesses pillaged by rioters and looters in the chaos have announced that they don’t plan on returning, citing the utter disregard for their safety on the part of city government.

Nearly 20% of Minneapolis real estate listings have been placed for sale in the past seven days, as the city’s upper and middle class recognize that the once affluent city is increasingly slated to become the next Detroit or Chicago.

The city of Minneapolis has become a stunning example of failed liberal leadership. If liberalism is not defeated, this is what the entire nation will look like before long.
