Thousands of protesters on foot and in vehicles converged Wednesday on Michigan’s capital to rally against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders in the state.
“Operation Gridlock,” organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, created a huge bumper-to-bumper traffic jam around the Michigan Capitol Building in Lansing, Fox 2 Detroit reported.
Meshawn Maddock, an organizer for the group, said the demonstrators include Republicans, Democrats, and independents.
As social media lit up with comments and photographs of the event, one image supposedly showing a flag bearing a swastika flag and the words “Trump” and “Pence” started to go viral.
This photograph was taken a month earlier at a protest in Boise, Idaho.
Conservative activist Andy Ngo debunked the photo and wrote:
Seen the viral photo that purportedly shows a Trump supporter displaying a swastika at the Lansing, Mich. protest against Gov. Whitmer’s stay at home order? It’s a hoax.
More evidence of dirty tricks backfiring. It’s interesting how hoaxes ultimately benefit those that they aim to discredit. That’s some kinky self-flagellation they’re into.
The interesting fact is that his photo managed to gain the attention of Snopes who said that the photo was taken a month earlier at a protest in Boise, Idaho by Trump’s supporters.
