HYPOCRISY: Gov. Whitmer supported the 2020 BLM riots but opposes the Freedom Convoy
By News Editors // Feb 14, 2022

Despite supporting the 2020 summer Black Lives Matter riots, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said that conservative media supporting the Freedom Convoy protest up north in Canada against COVID-19 mandates is "unhelpful" and "dangerous."

Whitmer condemned the ongoing Freedom Convoy, although she had a different take in 2020 when violent BLM rioters torched private property, looted businesses, and attacked law enforcement protecting residential communities.

During an interview with CNN political commentator Brianna Keilar on Friday, the Democrat governor said, "We cannot incite and encourage people to break the law. Especially when it means they’re throwing other Americans out of work and creating an economic crisis that we were just recovering from."

"They're inciting and encouraging people to break the law and to do so in a way that devastates so many hard-working people…This is five days, and it's already taken a toll of tens of billions of dollars — that number compounds over time."

"And any encouragement for people to replicate this and break the law and devastate our economy is not just devastating to our national bottom line but to individual households…It's incredibly unhelpful and downright dangerous."

Back in 2020, she did not appear to hold the same level of care for small businesses and families impacted by the consecutive nights of civil unrest.

Whitmer, who enforced some of the most strict COVID-19 lockdown orders in the nation, was seen protesting over George Floyd's death in police custody, disregarding social distancing guidelines and surrounded by demonstrators who were not wearing masks. The elected Democrat has had to apologize for her hypocritical behavior before for not following her own public health advice.
