Do the Malcontents Need a Third Political Party in America? Richard M. Perloff
CLEVELAND — Adam Fox couldn’t catch a break. He struggled to find direction after graduating from high school, performed contract work for a vacuum cleaner repair shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan, But that did not work. He blamed Democratic leaders for his fate. It was March 2020 and COVID-19 was getting worse.
He was furious with the government, especially Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, for his lockdown order. This is where it gets complicated. One opinion is that Fox formed a paramilitary group, bonded with like-minded guys from QAnon and the Proud Boys, plotted to kidnap Whitmer, got caught and was charged with conspiracy to possess weapons of mass destruction and federal firearms violations. The other point of view, his defense attorneysis that he was just acting tough, had no intention of kidnapping Whitmer, but was manipulated and framed by the FBI.
