It took Michigan Pilot Ed Frederick, 45, just an hour to plot out the flight path over Grand Rapids. He sent a heartfelt message to Governor Whitmer over her egregious lockdown orders: F U.
Governor Whitmer extended her stay-at-home order, which prompted even more angry protests across the state. Of all the Governors’ orders, hers has been the worst in terms of locking down businesses, and demanding people only buy certain “essential items.”
“It’s a power trip. The government, no matter Democrats or Republicans, always seem like they’re trying to do something just to prove they’re doing something, without weighing the ramifications…That’s been an issue for a lot of people in the rural counties. There are 82 counties, but really only four need to be locked down.” Ed Frederick
So on Friday, May 1, one day after armed protesters descended on the Capitol, Mr. Frederick carefully plotted the flight path for his Piper PA-24 Comanche, climbed aboard, and sent his message to Governor Whitmer. Flying for 57 minutes, he left a giant F U across the sky, with the tail end pointing directly at the Governor’s mansion.
This Michigan pilot is a small business owner. With the lockdown in place, his business has suffered. He lives just outside of Grand Rapids. He said most of the COVID-19 cases have been clustered near Detroit, according to Breitbart.
Mr. Frederick is exactly right about the power trip. She not only dissed the protesters, but actually called them all “racist” – which is the preferred leftist rant for anything and everything. If you have no plans, and no real answers, just call everyone names when they don’t agree with your nazi-like actions.
“Some of the outrageousness of what happened at our Capitol depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country.” Gretchen Whitmer
In reality, the swastikas were probably aimed at the Governor for her rigid lockdown antics. As for the armed folks ‘yelling’ at the legislature, they were just yelling, not pointing their guns at anyone. Some state lawmakers have been moving to restrict the Governor’s power, although Whitmer says she’ll veto anything they manage to pass.
So Michigan pilot Ed Fredericks gave her a flying “F U” on Friday, a statement with which Michigan protesters would likely agree.
