Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing a recall in California for the horrible way in which he has governed the state both before and during the pandemic. He’s imposed a series of unscientific and illogical edicts on Californians that he himself infamously flouted, which left the state’s economy in shambles, all while ignoring the damage that his woke social and criminal justice policies have inflicted on the state’s law-abiding residents.
On Monday he once again showed his authoritarian colors – adding further fuel to the Recall fire. He tried to blame those who are unvaccinated for the “surge” in Delta variant cases in the state, saying “we don’t even have to have that debate” about reinstituting mask mandates “if we can just get everyone vaccinated that’s not vaccinated.”
“It’s like drunk drivers,” he said. “You don’t have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk including your own life at risk.”
That’s rich, coming from a man who blamed alcoholism for his poor choices like having an affair with an employee who also happened to be his best friend’s wife – then decided maybe alcohol isn’t so bad and helped rack up an alleged $15,000 liquor bill at the French Laundry.
First, not getting vaccinated isn’t against the law, like drunk driving. Second, if you actually believe in vaccination, then why are you worried about the unvaccinated? If you’re worried about them, you must not think vaccines work. But third, the government doesn’t have a right to demand you get vaccinated. Fourth, how twisted are you if you’re comparing people who deliberately are breaking the law with those who are making a medical decision for themselves. If you’re demonizing voters over this you may be an authoritarian like Gavin Newsom. He’s stoking hate against them with this outrageous propaganda.
But Newsom didn’t just leave it there. He also attacked people, including Tucker Carlson and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), claiming they were spreading misinformation about vaccines and the virus. He didn’t list what “misinformation” that might be. Indeed his comment about right-wing misinformation was itself misinformation. People on both sides of the aisle have issues with the vaccine for a variety of reasons, it’s not an exclusively right-wing concern.
Greene blasted Newsom in response, calling out his dictatorial ways, and saying that’s exactly why he’s being recalled.
That caused Gov. HairGel to have a complete meltdown, going completely over the slide and accusing Greene of being “murderous.”
Political rhetoric is one thing, but calling a Congresswoman a murderer for not forcing a vaccine on people? Also, the entire country is on edge right now. Will Newsom’s rhetoric inspire someone like the man who shot Rep. Steve Scalise to target Rep. Greene?
But Greene finished him off.
Unvaccinated people are not murderers and any elected official who is crazy enough to push such dictates deserves to be recalled. It just adds to the many reasons that people want him out of there.
