Ten months of lockdowns and tens of thousands of Californians out of work, and finally Gavin Newsom discovers one job that absolutely must be saved — his own.
The Recall Newsom effort has grown by leaps and bounds over the last couple of months and suddenly Gavin is faced with the real possibility that he will join the tens of thousands of unemployed in California.
So he’s lifting his stay-at-home order.
Just how self-centered and self-important would one have to be to not give a damn about the economic damage these lockdowns have caused to the citizens you supposedly serve until the job that hangs in the balance is your own?
Talk about cynical.
While businesses begged to reopen and people begged to return to work, Gavin couldn’t be bothered. He was too busy partying with his rich lobbyist friends at the French Laundry to give a damn.
Then the Recall Newsom effort became a clear and present threat to his job and suddenly Gavin lifts the stay-at-home order?
It probably isn’t a galloping shock to learn that California Democrats and their media handmaids are terrified about the Recall Newsom effort. Already they’re claiming it is being led by “far right” groups.
California Democrat Party Chair Randy Hicks actually tried to link the Recall Newsom effort (that began last summer) to the January 6 Capitol riot.
“Some of the same individuals and groups who were encouraged by California Republican leaders and (who) attacked the people’s house are also engaged in a recall effort against Governor Gavin Newsom right here in California,” Hicks said. “This recall effort, which really ought to be called ‘the California coup,’ is being led by right-wing conspiracy theorists, white nationalists, anti-vaxxers, and groups who encourage violence on our democratic institutions.”
As the old saying goes, when you’re taking flak, you’re over the target. California Democrats are terrified that Newsom’s incompetent bungling will cost him his job, so they’re fighting like hell to discredit the Recall Newsom campaign.
If only California Democrats fought this hard to protect the jobs of average Californians.
The truth is, Newsom’s bungling should cost him his job.
Of the fifty states, California is dead last in vaccine distribution. Despite (or perhaps because of) the strict stay-at-home orders, the number of COVID cases in California is on the rise.
There’s a reason Californians are angry with this clown.
If Gavin thinks this cynical maneuver will save his scrawny ass from Recall, I think he might be wrong.
Many of those California businesses closed by Newsom are dead and gone; and the jobs they provided aren’t coming back.
Lifting the stay-at-home order is a hail Mary. It’s closing the barn door long after the Recall Newsom horse has galloped away at breakneck speed.
And after ten months of panicky, anti-science orders coupled with Gavin’s rank hypocrisy, I doubt the Californians who signed on to the Recall Newsom petition will be taken in by Gavin’s ass-covering maneuver.
