Michigan Supreme Court Shreds Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Sides with 77-Year-Old Barber

In a big win for freedom the Michigan Supreme Court sided with the 77 year old barber Karl Manke over Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a unanimous 7-0 decision.


As most readers know Manke was pursued aggressively by Whitmer’s administration for defying her shut down order and giving haircuts to regular customers.

According to a post on Facebook from Great Lakes News the Court’s decision to support Manke by a unanimous decision was even more stunning given the 4-3 ideological split on the court in favor of conservatives.

More via Breitbart:

Whitmer and Nessel fined Manke and stripped him of his license after he repeatedly refused to close his business in defiance of Whitmer’s executive orders.

A Michigan Court of Appeals upheld that Manke’s license suspension was valid, but the Supreme Court decision reversed that.

Manke was defiant after the Appeals Court ruling and told WILX, “I’m still open, still working until they cut my hands off.”

Breitbart News caught up with Manke during the recent “Operation Haircut” protest.

He said the response during the protest and the support for his stand was “overwhelming,” and called himself “a Michigan small town barber that just wants to work.”

This is a huge victory for Manke, for other small business owners in the state and a slap in the face of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
