Los Angeles, CA — Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have suffered at the hands of ridiculous government restrictions. In a country that claims to be the ‘land of the free,’ we look more like communist China. Restrictions have been specifically harsh in Democrat strongholds like California.
The restrictions have caused Americans to fight back amid the loss of personal freedom. Many have refused to comply with the restrictions, while some businesses have discussed potential moves due to the restrictions.
That has not stopped lawmakers from California from showing their hypocrisy of their own rules. We all remember how Nancy Pelosi felt the need to defy orders and have her hair done.
More recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom found himself amid controversy. He attended a birthday party that lacked masks and social distancing. Multiple photos have emerged of the event showing Newsom violating his own orders.
Now, Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Keuhl is facing a backlash. Keuhl voted to block outdoor dining and had called dining outdoors “a dangerous act.” Hours later, she proceeded to go to a restaurant and dine outdoors ahead of the order taking effect.
Keuhl, just like Pelosi and Newsom, has indicated that we must take the coronavirus seriously. As they instruct Americans to live in fear and cower in their homes, they continue to live as elitists, doing whatever they please.
Officials complain that cases of the coronavirus are soaring and that people are not taking the orders seriously. You do not have to search for long to determine why people are not taking the orders seriously.
Lawmakers have politicized a public health crisis, which should have never happened. If this were truly about public health, the lawmakers would be genuine and supportive of measures to address the pandemic. Instead, they continue to use it as a means to violate constitutional rights and attack President Trump.
Many of the coronavirus executive orders are not constitutional. The Supreme Court recently ruled against portions of the orders in New York, saying the orders were not legal and violated personal rights. Joe Biden said he wanted a national mask mandate until he realized that he could not do it without violating the Constitution.
Operation Warp Speed has produced a viable vaccine that looks to be on the market in just a couple of weeks. Two companies have produced a vaccine with over 90% effectiveness, which Dr. Fauci said was highly unlikely. All of this, thanks to President Trump. But you will not hear that from these hypocritical politicians.
It’s time to call out the hypocrisy of these lawmakers. It’s time to drain the swamps all across our country of these liberal cancers that claim they are operating in the best interest of the American people. The only ones that they are out for are themselves.
