SOCIAL MEDIA SIDELINES


Garrett Soldano

If it seems like the only Republican running against Gretchen Whitmer in ‘22 is former police chief James Craig, it could be because some of them use the equivalent of a dry erase stick on themselves. For example, take Garrett Soldano, of Kalamazoo, who describes himself in an email as “a chiropractor, small business owner, author, former football player, family man and proud Catholic.” He is also co-chair of Unlock Michigan, which led a successful campaign, along with Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (R-Clarklake), to limit Whitmer’s emergency powers. In that same email, Soldano announced he had been permanently banned from YouTube and his account deleted, for violating community guidelines. Last year, he said, he had his Facebook group, Michiganders Against Excessive Quarantine, shutdown by Facebook. Rather than acknowledging any wrongdoing, Soldano blamed “Big Tech oligarchs silencing conservative voices,” and that his campaign had been been “targeted repeatedly by liberal social media giants.”
