Democrat governors across the country have been abusing their power.
They’ve used the Wuhan virus to push crackdowns that otherwise would’ve been impossible.
Now one governor is enacting a new disturbing COVID-19 protocol.
Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer has been one of the worst at handling the coronavirus.
Not only did her state perform poorly in comparison to the red states that unfairly got heat from the so-called mainstream media, Whitmer enacted some of the most draconian lockdowns in the country.
She mandated entire departments of big-box stores be shut down and barred citizens from traveling to their second residences.
Meanwhile, her husband joked about being able to take his boat out on the lake while other Michiganders couldn’t.
Now Whitmer is requiring bars and restaurants to collect names and phone numbers of patrons in order to perform contact tracing.
Scott Ellis, executive director of Michigan Licensed Beverage Association, told local media about the burdensome and intrusive measure.
“Our frontline servers have already had trouble dealing with masks and mandates and mandating masks…We did de-escalation training and all kinds of other things to help with that and now we’re taking it to the next level. We have to gather someone’s personal information?”
“I think when you’re going to sit down at a restaurant you just don’t expect someone to take your name and number because you’re coming to have a drink or a burger.”
The bar and restaurant industry in Michigan has already been forced to operate at 50% capacity.
Forcing people to give private information is only going to hurt businesses further.
And contact tracing is largely ineffective in a country the size of the United States, especially with an incubation period of 2-15 days.
The COVID mandates keep coming from petty tyrants like Whitmer and the so-called mainstream media feeds the people with perpetual fear-mongering.
Michigan and many other parts of the country are fed up with the restrictive coronavirus policies.
Tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs and businesses, and deaths of despair have skyrocketed.
Health experts argue that the lockdowns have caused decreased screening for other maladies and increased mental health problems across the board.
Even the World Health Organization acknowledges lockdowns are not an effective method for containing the virus.
The best available data shows that social distancing and quarantining at-risk populations are the best ways to combat the coronavirus without tanking the economy.
But officials like Whitmer will do everything they can to seize more power and control people’s lives.
