MLive, October 9th: ‘Extreme opposition’ to school mask mandates target Michigan health officials with threats of violence

Public health officials across Michigan are facing threats of violence from their neighbors while anger over school masking requirements boils into calls to strip health departments of their power and funding.

Health officials are targets of harassmentdeath threats and accusations of treason being voiced in chaotic public meetings as parents and political activists demand an end to measures meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Expressions of intense anger over health rules are pitting school boards and county commissions against health officials who worry the outrage is derailing efforts to protect their communities.

Sure enough, here in Oakland County, a mysterious new Political Action Committee formed by Republican politicianactivist David Staudt in mid-September has already started running full-page, misleading & flat-out false attack ads against local school board members who support mask mandates in the local newsweekly.

They're even openly bragging about being "well-funded" and promising to also go after the Oakland County Board of Commissioners and County Executive. They've vowed that "the ads in the Eagle are just the beginning."

OUR OCTOBER 19th MEETING IS A CAN'T MISS EVENT.

Panelists:

  • Lucas Hartwell, former Grand Blanc student who alerted his community to a Q-Anon school member
  • Mike Whitty, professor and researcher on the growth of the radical right and their long-term strategy
  • Martin Brook, Bloomfield Township Clerk
  • State Representative Lori Stone, 28th district

Come hear about actions happening around the state and in our own community and learn what we can do to count these attacks. Register today!

Bloomfield Hills Board of Education Study Session

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 6:30pm

Thursday, October 7th
Booth/Doyle Center, 7273 Wing Lake Road

Local school boards are under attack via a coordinated national campaign by political forces using the controversy over mask mandates during a pandemic to sow division in the community, as well as to bully/intimidate board members into resigning or not running again...leaving those positions wide open for their own candidates.

Sadly, three Bloomfield Hills Schools board members who support the mask mandate to help keep our children safe & healthy are having their names dragged through the mud via a campaign of lies and innuendo from a mysterious new PAC.

We need as many health-conscious Bloomfield residents as possible to show up at the next BHS board meeting on Thursday, Oct. 7th to show the board we have their backs.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30pm but show up earlier if possible to make sure you get a good seat. If you're unfamiliar with the specifics of the BHS situation, contact Charles Gaba for more details.
