Democrat officials have loudly announced their support of new coronavirus restrictions for millions of Americans ahead of the holidays, plunging the vast majority of the nation back into strict lockdowns not dissimilar to those in March and April.
Fox host Tucker Carlson, however, exposed the hypocrisy of these officials — especially in California — during his Wednesday program, pointing out that “if you want to live like a human being, you’ve got to get elected to something, and then you can break your own rules. Otherwise, don’t even think about it.”
California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered the majority of the state’s 58 counties back into the most restrictive level of coronavirus precautions after the state began experiencing a surge in cases beginning in November.
Despite warning his constituents that they should not travel to be with loved ones on Thanksgiving, Newsom had no qualms about attending a ritzy birthday bash at a Michelin-starred restaurant in California’s wine country. After Newsom was exposed for flouting his own rules, he “apologized” and claimed that the party followed all of his guidelines for preventing the transmission of COVID.
However, that’s not quite the truth. Carlson explained:
For his part, Governor Newsom assured his suffering subjects that quote, “Our family followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions.” So really, ladies and gentlemen, it was nothing. Just a small intimate dinner held in nature, under God’s blue skies, just a few close friends staying safe and following the protocols to the letter as mandated by the state that in fact they run. So relax, people. No one is getting ‘rona here.
That was the story.
Now the photograph. We have the picture thanks to Fox 11 in Los Angeles, one of the rare local stations that still does reporting. It’s a picture of the birthday dinner up in Napa.
It turns out it was not held outside. It was held in a private room and not a spacious private room either. All 12 people were packed in tight, shoulder to shoulder, breathing on each other. No social distancing here. Not one of them is wearing a mask.
A steam room in central Wuhan could not be more contagious than this dinner. Gavin Newsom’s birthday party was a germ factory and his guests were human Petri dishes.
But what a guest list it was. Next to Governor Newsom sat the CEO of the California Medical Association and the one over from him, one of the state’s top health lobbyists. Together, the two of them represent tens of thousands of physicians, credentialed men of science and women of science in the State of California.
So if you’re wondering why, if you live in California, you can’t have Thanksgiving this year or visit your mother as she dies alone in the hospital, it is because of them and people like them. And yet there they were, eating $300.00 truffle pasta and living like this pandemic thing never even happened.
Carlson went on to rip Democrat politicians in general for continually violating the rules they impose on the peasants. California was the first state to enact strict lockdowns that rapidly spread across the nation.
California has repeatedly arrested, fined, and harassed innocent citizens that violate any of their petty rules, including socially distanced visits to beaches that were closed as part of the COVID-19 precations. Churches have bourne the brunt of California Democrats’ wrath, as many resisted restrictions that appeared to single out religious services.
Carlson went on to point out that these same Democrat politicians that have warned Americans against gathering with friends and loved ones during the holiday season had no problem allowing — and even condoning — riots throughout the summer.
“If you want to break the law, if you have an unscratchable itch, go ahead and loot Target or torch a fast-food franchise or beat up an old lady. That’s federally protected political speech, but authentic human contact, no, only the ruling class gets that,” Carlson explained.
“So what is this exactly? It’s hypocrisy, of course,” he concluded. “That was not big enough. This is not conventional hypocrisy. This is — let’s stop lying — an act of hostility against the population of the country. They despise you. They’re flaunting it.”
