Where’s Weyermuller? Rallying in Wisconsin to “Reopen America”




By Mark Weyermuller - 

Throughout the country, "Reopen America" rallies are happening almost daily. I attended one Saturday with about 200 people on the Illinois/Wisconsin state line. 

The mood was upbeat with much hope and optimism that a plan to get back to normal was underway. Participants had wore patriotic tee shirts, MAGA hats, and carried American flags. Some have said the Tea Party is gone, but it appears to alive and well here. One man held a sign saying “Enough is Enough."

The COVID-19 virus has had a devastating effect on our country. At this point, many people under the leadership of President Trump want to have a plan to reopen now. 

My plan is to take precautions, protect the vulnerable, go back to work safely, and reopen America now. Most businesses have plans in place to reopen using self distancing and a variety of other safety precessions. 

Here is a video from the Illinois event with a variety of interviews: https://youtu.be/ukXNzRlelVk

There is a Reopen America large rally planned for May 1, 2020 at noon at the Illinois State Capitol.  More information here: https://facebook.com/events/s/re-open-illinois-in-springfiel/239134113953446/?ti=icl

  1. The backlash is finally coming, better late than never. There has never been a more devastating attack on our Republic than this self-inflicted wound perpetrator by and for the liberal left to destroy our freedoms and economy. History will not look kindly on this fiasco!

  2. When this is over the American people will hold the Trump adminstration responsible for the dead…. the buck stops with the President. END OF DISCUSSION. The trump death cult (that’s you!) deserves whatever they have coming.

  3. Please consider the frontline nurses, doctors, EMT’s, police and firefighters who will be put in harms way ( because they will be exposed to the virus as the infection rate increases if social distancing isn’t practiced- basic biology and probability) this isn’t a partisan issue this is a human issue. Pandemics cannot be solved by gathering groups of humans together, this is nonsense.
