Michigan Capitol Set for Siege by Barbers and Stylists Backing ‘Operation Haircut’


The great American debate over the coronavirus and the lockdowns that it ushered in is far from over, especially in places such as Michigan where protesters have already been vociferously opposed to the idea that the economy should suffer more than it already has.

The Wolverine State has also been a flashpoint of the debate on account of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s alleged overreaches when it came to branding what was considered “essential” and “non-essential”.

Now, after a number groups have already protested at the state capitol in recent weeks, it’s the hairdressers’ turn.

“Operation Haircut” will take place from noon to 3:00 p.m., organizers said.

“Michigan’s small business owners are patriotic and law abiding citizens, but enough is enough. Our Governor’s actions show every day that this is no longer about the China virus. Her actions show this is now about a progressive radical agenda,” Marian Sheridan, a cofounder of the Michigan Conservative Coalition, said in a news release.

“Dope shops are open, abortion mills churn on, but barber shops are, somehow, unsafe. Show us that ‘science’ Governor!”

The protest comes as Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel have targeted 77-year-old Owosso barber Karl Manke, who reopened his shop after being denied unemployment.

Whitmer declared barbers, salons, and hair services “nonessential” in her orders and barred them from reopening.

Michigan has acted as a microcosm of the lowdown debate in recent days, as much of the rest of the nation continues to slowly reopen for business.
