Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will receive the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation’s Profile in Courage Award for her actions during the media-induced coronavirus hysteria, according to a press release.
Whitmer implemented draconian lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, imposed arbitrary restrictions on churches, businesses and private gatherings, and sent coronavirus-positive elderly people to infect and kill their fellow residents at nursing homes.
Caroline Kennedy, JFK’s only surviving child, and her son, Jack Schlossberg, will present Whitmer and six others with the COVID Courage award on May 26, the Detroit News reported.
“Today’s honorees put their own lives at risk to keep others safe. They inspire us all with their courage and give new meaning to President Kennedy’s legacy of public service,” said Caroline Kennedy, who serves as honorary president of the JFK Library Foundation.
“These heroes went above and beyond for their community and our country, and remind us that we all can make a difference if we answer the call to serve,” said Schlossberg, a member of the Profile in Courage Award Committee.
Whitmer felt that she risked her life because responsible gun owners protested at the Michigan state capitol and demanded that she restore their fundamental rights to liberty and property.
She also felt endangered when authorities charged 13 men with conspiring to kidnap the governor, put her on trial and execute her. It was later discovered, however, that the plot’s principal planners were FBI informants who had encouraged the other participants.
“Despite violent threats against her life, Whitmer did not back down,” the foundation said in a press release.
Whitmer and the media attempted to portray the alleged conspirators as a group of pro-Trump radicals who opposed the lockdowns. Some of them, however, were associated with far-left and anarchist groups, like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Despite some of the most tyrannical shutdowns and unscientific mask mandates in the nation, Michigan has a higher case fatality rate than states like Florida, which quickly abandoned authoritarian measures in response to the flu-like illness, FEE reported.
To implement her preferred policies, Whitmer initiated one of the nation’s most expansive executive power grabs in American history.
Although her measures crushed individual and property rights and had doubtful influence on the pandemic, she accepted the “prestigious award on behalf of every Michigander who stepped up to help their family and community through the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“We must all strive to live up to the call of public service put forward by President Kennedy decades ago and exemplified by the heroes on the frontlines of this pandemic who are putting shots in arms and working tirelessly in schools, stores, and hospitals statewide,” she said.
The JFK Library Foundation will present six other COVID Courage awards to a slate of people who championed the most radical and unscientific approaches to the coronavirus bug.
One recipient, Dr. Amy Acton, the former director of the Ohio State Health Department, pushed the state’s shelter-in-place order. Multiple studies have shown that shelter-in-place orders do not lower the case rate or fatality rate for respiratory illnesses.
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, also will receive an award for his ‘courage’ in twice voting to support impeachment of former president Donald Trump. Romney was the only Republican in either chamber of Congress to support Trump’s first impeachment.
