Michigan Sheriffs Defy Totalitarian Governor’s Lockdown Orders, Vow to Uphold Constitutional Civil Liberties

In defiance of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian and tyrannical lockdown orders in the state, tens of thousands drove into the state capital city of Lansing yesterday to protest. Instead of listening to the citizens’ protest of her infringement of their constitutional rights, instead, she proceeded to blame and ridicule them.

Several county sheriffs, including four from North Michigan counties, have now publicly vowed to defy Whitmer’s “vague” orders and instead uphold the Constitution and defend civil liberties.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

Michigan Live reported yesterday that “In a joint press release issued as thousands of residents protest at the state capital in Lansing, Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich, Benzie County Sheriff Ted Schendel, Manistee County Sheriff Ken Falk and Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said they will not strictly enforce Whitmer’s orders in their counties.”

“While we understand her desire to protect the public, we question some restrictions that she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority,” the sheriffs wrote. “She has created a vague framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan citizens.”

Instead of strictly enforcing her orders, the sheriffs vowed to apply common sense and deal with every case individually.

“Each of us took an oath to uphold and defend the Michigan Constitution, as well as the US Constitution, and to ensure that your God-given rights are not violated,” the four sheriffs said. “We believe that we are the last line of defense in protecting your civil liberties.”

“Together, as a community, we will overcome this pandemic, and as Americans, we will persevere and come out stronger than before. As sheriffs of your community, we want you to know we have your back and will continue to serve the people who have entrusted us with your protection.”

Currently, Whitmer’s order is set to expire on April 30th but would likely be extended much further if actions are not taken to protect the civil liberties. The Democrat governor has ordered all gatherings of more than two people illegal and has ordered stores to shut down and tape off aisles of items that she has single-handedly deemed to be “non-essential.”
