Continuing in the “You did what??” category is Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Shane Hernandez, who proudly sent out a tweet standing with different people while at the Port Austin farmers market. Prominent in one photo, Hernandez, a former state lawmaker, is standing with a man with the flag for the Three Percenters movement behind them. For those who may not hang with militia folk, Three Percenters are part of the militia movement – which according to the Anti-Defamation League, “supports the idea of a small number of dedicated ‘patriots’ protecting Americans from government tyranny.” The feds have tied Three Percenters supporters to the January 6, 2021 insurrection and efforts to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Not sure who Hernandez felt he needed protection from – though he deleted the photo after the expected brouhaha, and said he had just been buying honey from a small business owner who wanted a photo with him, and he never noticed the flag in the background. How sweet.
