Whitmer Blames Trump For Saving Her From Anti-Trump Anarchist’s Kidnapping Plot

This is so wrong…. so hate-filled… so deliberately false that it’s hard for many people to comprehend anything more offensively evil.

The FBI thwarted a kidnapping plot against Michigan democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Those who were planning it are anarchists, whose social media rants read like a manifesto for the CHOP zone, which was recently captured and controlled by similar ‘protestors’ in Seattle.

However, inexplicably, Whitmer is blaming President Trump, spreading the same tired old falsehoods that democrats are desperate to make the American people believe.

Breitbart News reported:

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) claimed Thursday that President Donald Trump is “complicit” in stoking extremists like the ones who had planned an alleged plot to kidnap her and overthrow the state’s government.

Whitmer’s remarks came in a livestreamed address in which she noted President Trump’s remarks on white supremacy during the first presidential debate. When asked to denounce the group Proud Boys, President Trump said, “Stand back and stand by.” Whitmer believes that was a “rallying cry” for those who allegedly sought to abduct her.

“Just last week, the president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacist and hate groups like these two Michigan militia groups,” Whitmer said. “Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke, but as a rallying cry, as a call to action.

“When our leaders speak, their words matter,” Whitmer continued. “They carry weight. When our leaders meet with, encourage, or fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions and they are complicit.”

Whitmer took jabs at Trump repeatedly, claiming that he is “stoking distrust” and “fomenting anger.”

“Our head of state has spent the past seven months denying science, ignoring his own health experts, stoking distrust, fomenting anger, and giving comfort to those who spread fear and hatred and division,” Whitmer stated.

While it is reported that twelve individuals have been charged in regards to the alleged kidnap plot, the United States attorneys in Michigan announced charges against Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta.

“When I put my hand on the Bible and took the oath of office 22 months ago, I knew this job would be hard. But I’ll be honest, I never could’ve imagined anything like this,” Whitmer said.

NBC News added:

Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller called Whitmer’s comments on Thursday “shameful.”

“I mean, if we want to talk about hatred, then Gov. Whitmer, go look in the mirror — the fact that she wakes up every day with such hatred in her heart for President Trump — President Trump is the one out there condemning these radical groups, whether they be on the left or the right,” Miller said on Fox News.

Trump on Thursday night attacked Whitmer, tweeting that the governor “has done a terrible job” and “locked down” her state, referring to coronavirus restrictions. “My Justice Department and Federal Law Enforcement” announced the foiling of a dangerous plot, he tweeted.

“Rather than say thank you, she calls me a White Supremacist,” Trump wrote.

“I do not tolerate ANY extreme violence. Defending ALL Americans, even those who oppose and attack me, is what I will always do as your President!” he added in another tweet.

President Trump is correct.

The ringleader of the gang of anarchists made no secret about his hate of President Trump… which seems to be on par with Whitmer’s own.
