Gretchen Whitmer Deserves a Lump of Coal
Gretchen Whitmer Deserves a Lump of Coal
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer just released a Christmas-themed PSA in which she
indoctrinates advises children how to keep their families safe. The video is cringeworthy in its fakery. It’s also alarming in how Whitmer uses children as props to further her COVID propaganda.
Presented as a Zoom call to the North Pole, the PSA features Whitmer wearing a red jacket with a Christmas pin (how festive!), some schlub playing Santa, and several children of various races (diversity!). In this “Special Holiday Message,” the kids ask Santa questions about coronavirus — which you know real kids don’t care about. They’re actually wondering if they’re getting that Playstation 5.
So the urchins mouth lines that their
parents handlers have encouraged them to recite.
Like: Santa, do you have to wear a mask? That was the very first question.
Answer: Yep, not only the Big Guy, but all the elves have to wear masks, too. Plus, they all socially-distance. I wonder if the local IBEW — International Brotherhood of Elvin Workers — agrees with Santa’s terms.
“We’ll also set out hand sanitizer if you’re done with the cookies and milk.”
Which Gretchen Whitmer praised as a “good suggestion.” Seriously, what child makes that kind of a comment? Answer — no kid would.
“Excuse me Santa, is the coronavirus at the North Pole?”
“I think we’re so far up North that it might not be getting to us. But we’re not gonna take any chances. We’re all gonna mask up. We’re all gonna wash our hands, and we’re all gonna stay six feet apart. What I would suggest to do is what the governor is telling all the people of the great state of Michigan to do. Social distance, wash your hands, and make sure you wear your mask when you’re outside your home.”
Finally, the pièce de résistance of this dreck comes at the end when Whitmer tells kids to stay home at Christmas and call their grandparents instead.
“Another way to stay safe during the holiday is to stay home. Call your grandparents and your cousins and your family. And it’s the safest way to tell the people you love how much you care about them.”
Otherwise, kiddies, you might kill them with COVID! even though children aren’t big spreaders of the disease.
Gretchen Whitmer turned off the comments for this atrocious video at YouTube. It’s no wonder.
Reactions to this propaganda were . . . oh, let’s say, rather harsh. But well-deserved.
Actor Nick Searcy tweeted:
“Any parent who lets their children watch this garbage from @GovWhitmer needs a visit from Child Protective Services.”
There were also comparisons to the Grinch:
“Whitmer is using Santa Claus to indoctrinate kids about the coronavirus. Even the Grinch didn’t stoop that low.”
Of course, some brought out Krampus, the most badass demon of Christmastime:
“”And now, my dear little ones, let me tell you the story of Krampus, and what happens to little children who don’t unquestioningly obey their governor during Christmas time!” – G. Whitmer, probably.”
Come to think of it, Gretchen Whitmer would make a good Krampus. She certainly seems to relish frightening children.
After watching that garbage “Holiday Message,” I have also concluded this: That was not the real St. Nick in Whitmer’s video. Don’t worry, kids!
That’s because the original St. Nicholas was a bishop of the early Christian church who attended the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. When he heard one of his fellow bishops, a fellow named Arius, promote some theological heresy, Nicholas slapped him in the face. The other bishops threw Nicholas in prison, but the Emperor Constantine reinstated him to the council. Arius’s heresy did not prevail.
Now I’m not saying that someone should slap Gretchen Whitmer, but the real St. Nick wouldn’t tell children to stay away from their grandparents. Nor would he scare them about making Mimi and PopPop sick at Christmas if they visited. He would stand up for the truth. So boys and girls, that was not the real Santa in that “Special Holiday Message.”
For promoting that awful video, Gretchen Whitmer deserves a big lump of coal. And maybe a visit from Krampus, too.
