With only days left until Christmas, authoritarian Democrats continue to tighten the screws on their hapless victims who have had lumps of coal deposited in their stockings by blue state governors.
Those who remain trapped in states run by the likes of Andrew Cuomo, Gavin Newsom, Tom Wolf, and Phil Murphy are for the first time in their lives experiencing what it is like to live under cruelty and repression with severe restrictions being imposed for the traditionally joyous season.
But when it comes to cruelty, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has taken it to an entirely new level with a shameful video where she has enlisted Santa to lecture kids about the necessity of COVID lockdowns.
In the video, the ultra-creepy Whitmer whose strange distorted facial features have regularly appeared on cable news telescreens since spring exploits one of childhood’s most cherished figures to normalize the fascism that has descended upon the Wolverine State under her rule.

According to the watchdog website the Center Square:
Pandemic restrictions forced 32% of Michigan businesses to close at least temporarily, the most of all 50 states in the nation, federal data show.
Only Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory where 50% of businesses closed, ranked higher.
Nationally, government-enforced lockdowns closed 19% of businesses, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics based on private-sector data compiled between July 20 and Sept. 30. The BLS notes Michigan was followed closely by Pennsylvania (30%); Washington (27%); Vermont, Hawaii and New York (26%).
The BLS reports only six states – South Dakota, Arkansas, North Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, and Nebraska – saw fewer than 10% of businesses closed in response to government mandated restrictions.
Nationwide, 62% of businesses received a loan or grant to help make payroll, with Michigan (63%) trailing the nation’s highest percentage state in the same category: Alabama and Hawaii (67%). By contrast, the District of Columbia (55%), Montana (57%), and New Mexico (57%) had the lowest percentage of businesses that received a loan or grant.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has unsuccessfully appealed to the state legislature to draft a bill that would appropriate $100 million in relief funds for Michigan businesses and residents as well as permanently extend unemployment benefits in the state.
In the meantime, the state continues its latest lockdown, which began in mid-November.
Just when you thought that Gretchen Whitmer couldn’t stoop any lower.
She's amazing! (at destroying the state of Michigan and setting the mold for 21st-century tyranny) https://t.co/oTJwRHTUbR
