Attorney: Would-be dictators worse problem than virus

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D)A constitutional attorney says when the history books are written about the Covid-19 pandemic, they will say this wasn't a public health crisis, it was a constitutional crisis.

As OneNewsNow recently reported, the American Freedom Law Center recently filed a civil rights lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s governor, Tom Wolf, that is challenging numerous restrictions on the basis they are unconstitutional.

The lawsuit is one of several filed by AFLC against officials in several states that have imposed mandatory mask mandates and other draconian measures on their citizens under the pretense of protecting the public.  

Michigan protestRobert Muise, co-founder and senior trial counsel at AFLC, says government officials are trying to “shame” the public and, in some cases, impose criminal penalties.

“When this starts to go from just being a good neighbor to being these dictatorial edicts,” Muise observes, “we're also the same people who threw tea into the harbor. And people need to stand up and need to fight back."

Recently, Northeastern University in Boston expelled 11 first-year students because they violated social distancing protocols. The school also forced them to forfeit their $36,500 tuition. 

That incident angered author-comedian Adama Corolla, whose warning on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" mirroed those of Muise. 

"Fear is how politicians control you," Corolla told the program. "Everything they say is fear based, and if you want to control your populace you do it with fear." 

The attorney insists what is happening is not about protecting the public from the virus when governors are acting more like kings and queens.

"We'll look back during this time and we'll say that this wasn't a public health crisis. This was a constitutional crisis,” he predicts.
