If the insane left wants to know why a growing percentage of Americans are fed up with the fear porn surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, they need look no further than the abject hypocrisy of Democratic ‘leaders.’
In recent weeks one after another has been exposed as having blatantly violated the very rules they put in place for lesser mortals to follow.
The latest hypocrite is San Fran Mayor London Breed.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed attended a birthday party at the high-end French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley — one day after Gov. Gavin Newsom did the same, and three days before banning indoor dining at restaurants in her own city.
The San Francisco Chronicle elaborated Tuesday:
Breed took a few days off after election day and joined seven others the night of Nov. 7 to celebrate socialite Gorretti Lo Lui’s 60th birthday, Breed’s spokesman Jeff Cretan confirmed. The party of eight dined in the same kind of partially enclosed room with a ceiling and chandelier as Newsom did — making it more of an indoor dining experience than an outdoor one.
The dinner would have certainly violated San Francisco’s health guidelines if it took place in Breed’s own city. San Francisco has issued stricter guidance than the state for several types of businesses, including restaurants, which were not supposed to seat groups larger than six indoors or outdoors unless everyone lived together. Three days after dining at the French Laundry, Breed banned indoor dining in San Francisco altogether.
But, as they say, ‘wait, there’s more’:
It’s just the latest example of a politician not exactly practicing what they keep preaching. When [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom attended his French Laundry dinner for lobbyist Jason Kinney’s 50th birthday, the party of 12 certainly included more than three households. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her hair done in San Francisco while salons were ordered closed.
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo told people to avoid big gatherings for Thanksgiving, but attended his elderly parents’ holiday dinner in Saratoga with other relatives from five households. Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining last week — and hours later was spotted dining outside at an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica.
See what happens in a state where one party rules? You get this kind of hubris because these people know and understand that the goofballs who put them in power are going to keep putting them in power again and again, so they can be abused, lied to, and crapped on regularly.
There is a solution: Leaving California, which is what tens of thousands have done.
The problem with that, though, is that those idiots bring their voting habits with them, as has happened in Colorado and, now, Arizona.
Here’s a hint to Democrats leaving Democrat hellholes: If you bring your political proclivities with you, then you’re going to screw up anywhere you and your like-minded friends congregate.
What is so freaking hard to understand about that?
