Protesters have continued to gather across the United States, ignoring social distancing rules, to demonstrate against lockdown orders they call ‘tyrannical’ and ‘worse than the virus’.

Crowds of people – many decked out in MAGA hats and with Donald Trump posters – have met up in Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Utah and Wyoming this week with more crowds in Virginia Thursday.

The organizer of demonstrations in Michigan, Meshawn Maddock of the Michigan Conservative Coalition Quarantine, called the lifesaving quarantines ‘tyranny’.

The group say they are ‘Republicans who want our party to stop moving left’. They run associated groups called Michigan Trump Republicans and Women for Trump. Maddock told Fox News: ‘Every person has learned a harsh lesson about social distancing. We don’t need a nanny state to tell people how to be careful.’

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said those protesting, some flying Confederate flags, had likely lengthened lockdowns. She said: ‘The sad irony here is that they…may have just created the need to lengthen it.’

A startling image from Ohio shows a baying crowd at the window of the Statehouse Atrium on Monday. Two protesters wearing Trump hats, other wave American flags and one is in the V for Vendetta mask.

And in Virginia ReOpen Virginia, End The Lockdown VA and Virginians Against Excessive Quarantine organized a protest Thursday against Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s lockdown.

In Utah, where Gov. Gary Herbert has closed down public schools for the rest of the year and ordered businesses to shutter amid the coronavirus pandemic, protest signs read ‘Resist like it’s 1776’ and ‘America will never be a socialist country.’

Republican Larry Meyers, who organized the grassroots event and ran for Senate, said it was to ‘assert our God-given, Constitutionally-protected rights, including freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, religious freedom, the right to contract, and the right to use our property as we see fit so long as we do not harm others’.

And in Kentucky protesters stood outside the window Democratic Governor Andy Beshear as he spoke the state’s residents about the ongoing lockdowns.

Hearing their shouts of ‘facts over fear’ Beshear said: ‘Folks, that would kill people. That would absolutely kill people.’

    Where’s Pennsylvania in all this? The birthplace of our nation and I don’t see any demonstrations like the ones in Michigan or Ohio. Pennsylvania might as well ship the Liberty Bell to Michigan because we don’t deserve to have it. The display of firearms in Michigan is awesome! Now the question is…Are you prepared to use them when the police or national guard show up and use force to disperse the crowd? We’ll see.
