Despite Strict Lockdowns, Michigan Has 7 Of Top 10 Worst COVID Locations

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer talked all the talk, walked all the walk and just generally acted like her plan to fight COVID-19 was the way to go.

When it came to imposing lockdowns, no one was stricter than Whitmer and Michigan.

Yeah, uh, way to go, governor.

According to the New York Times, seven of the 10 metro areas with the worst COVID surges are in Michigan. Jackson, MI ranked No. 1 in the country for all the wrong reasons.

Jackson is followed by Detroit, Flint, Monroe, Lansing and Owosso, respectively. Only New York City, coming seventh, could break the string of Michigan cities with the biggest surges.

Granted, you can’t really blame politicians for what happens with a virus. It’s really not their field of expertise. But we just elected a president whose entire campaign focused on “ending the virus.” And the mainstream media and Big Tech went out of their way to blame Donald Trump. So it’s only fair to pin this dire news on Whitmer.

“As the pandemic progresses, the number of cases per capita can provide a good measure of the prevalence of coronavirus in a community, even if the deadliest period of the outbreak has passed, as it may have in places like Seattle, New York and New Orleans,” the report noted.

  1. I wonder if Whitmer is less willing to enforce lockdowns in majority black cities like Detroit and Flint? Does less policing(of major gatherings for example) play a part? Speculation on my part, but the cities listed stood out for demographic reasons.

  2. I’ve seen more Michigan license plates in FL the last 6 months than in my 12 years, combined, living here.

    99% of the Michiganders moving here voted for Whitmer—and will vote for the Whitmers of Florida; this is why Democrats and their policies are malignant cancerous cells.

  3. “Granted, you can’t really blame politicians for what happens with a virus. It’s really not their field of expertise. ”

    No, Sam, I do not grant that. I absolutely do blame them. Had this cold virus, only slightly more severe than a typical cold virus, been allowed to run its course with no political interference, this would have been over months ago. “Flattening the curve” does not decrease the number of cases under the curve, it only elongates the time over which those same number of cases occur.

    And precisely because it is not their field of expertise, people like Whitmer should shut their fucking mouths and stop with the “leave it to the experts” words and attitudes they have been spewing. In fact, Sam, what would you say IS their field of expertise?

    • This comment of mine wasn’t meant to come across as to wanting the 13% to get Covid. I don’t wish that upon anyone because I know a few people that have had it. I was just referring to Witmer is trying to be so woke that she would seem to be happier having the uber woke live in her state. My apologies for sounding tone deaf and insensitive with my first take.
