This is the Michigan AG:
I wish some of the “brave” Michiganders who love to attend rallies against our governor dressed in full tactical gear armed with assault weapons and who claim to “love freedom” and “hate communism” would volunteer to go fight for Ukraine right now. They need your help. 🇺🇦

Remember that during the height of the lockdowns, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has aisles of “non-essential” items like pait, seeds, and Easter candy blocked off with caution tape at hardware stores and big box retailers.
She forbade people who had multiple homes (guys with hunting or fishing cabins up north) from traveling between them.
She blocked people from leaving their homes and going to work.
She refused to give up her emergency powers once it was clear her emergency powers were not helping.
She acted like an absolute tyrant.
If you are a patriotic American who hates tyrants, you need to fly to Ukraine and die fighting Russians.
If you don’t, it will be assumed that you are a coward and a traitor who supports Putin because you voted for Trump and watch Fox News.
This is the American version of yesterday’s worst take.
The Democrats are going to use Ukraine as a cudgel to bash Americans saying effectively that anyone who opposed their policies is a coward and a traitor unless they volunteer to fight Russians overseas.
I told you their moral compass was still broken.
It’s an ugly and obnoxious position and I can’t wait for it to backfire on them.
This is now the narrative out of Canada:
Unbelievable that some Canadians are still rallying and calling for freedom while an actual war started by an actual dictator ravages Ukraine. And even after mandates have been lifted. Truly unreal. pic.twitter.com/EBv3ZZbBnR

I.e., don’t complain about the erosion of your freedoms here while Russia is invading Ukraine.
This is the misdirection they will use.
This narrative is starting in Canada but it will be the dominate one in the US as well.
