Follicular justice warriors at Michigan Capitol on Wednesday, likely armed. Because defying a stay-at-home order to propagate a viral contagion is patriotic, something, something. Darn those 77-year old rebels. Neck-beards ruin the surgical mask look.

Last month, a whole bunch of people gathered in Madison, Wisconsin for a lockdown protest. Just a few weeks later, 72 people who reported “having attended a large event” in Wisconsin tested positive for COVID-19.

In New York City this week, a barber who had been giving underground haircuts during the lockdown also tested positive for the virus.

In Michigan, the geniuses of the Michigan Conservative Coalition — the same ones who organized “Operation Gridlock” — are planning another anti-lockdown protest for this coming Wednesday that they are calling Operation Haircut. This will entail a bunch of barbers and hair stylists standing on the lawn of the State Capitol building in Lansing and giving out free haircuts, in order to protest the fact that haircuts are not considered an “essential” service. The rally was inspired by barber Karl Manke’s defiance of the stay-at-home order, which resulted in the loss of his license.…

cool to be on the side that’s been holding armed protests because they don’t know how to style their hair.


Barbicide is a disinfectant solution used by barbers and cosmetologists for disinfecting grooming tools such as combs and hair-cutting shears. Manufactured by King Research, it was invented in 1947 by Maurice King and marketed heavily around the United States by his brother James.[1]
Barbicide is a United States Environmental Protection Agency-approved combination germicidepseudomonacidefungicide, and a viricide effective against HIV-1Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.
Barbicide is sold as a concentrate diluted for use in a 1:16 ratio with water[3], with each stylist having a container for treating their own tools.
Company technicians make (unverified) claims it is the only such disinfectant to hold its power and colour over time, maintaining competitors’ products eventually turn green or brown.[1]
At one time, several US states legally required barber shops to use Barbicide; according to the maker two still did in 1997.[1] A jar of Barbicide sits on display in the Smithsonian Institution‘s National Museum of American History.[1]…

FOX 2  “This is about our governor overreaching, it feels tyrannical what we are living under, here in Michigan right now,” said Meshawn Maddock.

Maddock of the Michigan Conservative Coalition expressed her frustration with the governor’s extended stay at home order.

Operation Haircut protest is happening on the (MI) Capitol lawn May 20

Maddock says Operation Haircut is set for May 20th. Dozens of barbers and hair stylists plan to cut hair on the Capitol lawn while following safety guidelines.

The group, which first helped organize Operation Gridlock where hundreds of people caused traffic jams near the Capitol chanting “Open up Michigan” is now organizing Operation Haircut.

“To show people we are not unintelligent – the workers and the business owners of Michigan – we all know how to behave in this new world,” Maddock said. “There is no reason why barbers and stylists can’t safely cut hair.”

The idea was inspired by what happened to Owosso barber Carl Manske who continued to cut hair despite the order. The state has since stripped him of his license.

“The fact that a 77-year-old barber became a leader in our state (as) the first person brave enough to risk his license, to stand up to our governor,” she said. “We are proud of him and we were impressed by him. And immediately other hair stylists and barbers reached out to us and said what can I do?”…
