If the Wuhan Panic has taught me anything, it’s that people don’t understand how analogies work. And this was made painfully clear when Michigan’s Chief Karen, Gretchen Whitmer, pulled this inane analogy out of her ass.
Oh, for crying out loud. Somebody really needs to buy Gretchen Whitmer a clue. That is assuming, of course, she hasn’t banned the purchase of clues as part of her “Stay at Home” dictates.
This is the worst analogy EVER.
Anybody else thinking Gretchen Whitmer must have had a painfully difficult time with the Analogies section of the SATs?
You actually think this is a good argument to make?
Most of the people who went to work in the factories during World War Two were thrilled to have the work. There was a Depression, after all.
“They had to drop everything.” Really? What were they dropping? Not having a job to put food on the table?
Now, I never heard of Gretchen Whitmer until the Wuhan Panic.
And the more I hear of and from her, the more I think Michiganders must have been high when they put this dummy into the Governor’s mansion.
Gretchen, honey. You aren’t asking people to roll up their sleeves and get to work for crap’s sake.
You’re doing the exact opposite.
Oy, the work.
The people protesting your moronic, capricious “Stay at Home” orders would love nothing more than to roll up their sleeves and get to work. And something tells me if you ordered them to drop everything, roll up their sleeves and get back to work, they’d say, “About damn time!” Then they’d happily, willingly comply.
During World War Two, they were going out in the fresh air, collecting tin and rubber for the war effort.
Gretchen Whitmer won’t even let these people buy paint or garden seeds.

Now, if during World War Two, Americans were forced inside those factories and not permitted to leave for weeks on end, maybe this analogy would rise to the level of half-assed.
But they weren’t.
They also weren’t forced to work in factories against their will.
Honestly, I don’t know how someone so stupid ever managed to become the Governor of a state.
What am I saying? Stupid people get elected to Congress all the time.
Maybe because she’s not especially bright, Gretchen has convinced herself that she can get Michiganders to obey her nonsensical orders by guilting them into it.
In short, she’s playing the Mom Card.
Like I said yesterday, Gretchen Whitmer is turning into Michigan’s nagging mother. And, boy, howdy is this a prime example of that. It’s typical Mom to try and guilt her children into doing something she wants, isn’t it?
Tell me, what’s the difference between this “during World War Two Americans didn’t act like this” lecture and a Mom saying, “You know, some children in India are going to bed starving. So I don’t want to hear about how much you hate Brussel sprouts! Now clear your plate!”
Seriously, Michiganders. What on earth were you thinking?
