More than 100 demonstrators, many of them armed, burst into the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing to protest Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s science-based stay-at-home order, which is has saved lives (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
Almost none of the protesters were wearing protective masks, but many were armed with assault weapons. They crammed into the building’s entryway while chanting: “Let us in, let us in, let us in!”
Some protesters shouted ““redcoats” at Michigan State Police troopers, and “Heil Whitmer,” in a sick effort to compare Gov. Whitmer to Hitler.
