“Rules for thee, not for me,” indeed.
As that’s precisely what just happened in the leftist state of California, where Tyrant Newsom cruised to an easy victory in the recent gubernatorial recall election.
Shortly after winning the recall election, Newsom proclaimed that the State of California apparently “said yes to science,” amongst other things.
“We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines. We said yes to ending this pandemic. We said yes to people’s right to vote without fear of fake fraud or voter suppression …
We said yes to women’s fundamental constitutional right to decide for herself what she does with her body, her fate, and her future … We said yes to diversity. We said yes to inclusion. We said yes to pluralism. We said yes to all those things that we hold dear as Californians, and I would argue, as Americans.” [Source: Breitbart]
Correction 1: Yes to diversity … unless you’re a Republican, or, for that matter, a “moderate.”
Correction 2: Yes to inclusion … as long as you agree with exactly what the left says.
And as far as saying “yes to science” is concerned?
Well, in light of the Emmy’s, which featured a staggering lack of concern for COVID protocols, it appears that the “science” Newsom envisions for California is more along the lines of the “science” that permitted him to eat indoors, shoulder to shoulder, without a mask, at one of the most expensive restaurants in the state last year.
While summarily shutting down other businesses, of course, and robbing countless indivdiuals of their economic agency. And he has the nerve to talk about “voter suppression” when he actively engages in livelihood suppression, all while breaking his own COVID rules.
However, being the “generous” guy that he is, Newsom allows his buddies to skip past COVID protocols as well, including his adoring Hollywood elite.
Though at least one of the elite called out the Emmy’s for exactly what they were, or for what they were doing, namely Seth Rogen.
“They said this was outdoors. It’s not. They lied to us. We’re in a hermetically sealed tent right now. I would not have come to this … There is way too many of us in this little room.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Thank you, Mr. Rogen, for your honesty.
Too bad most “stars” don’t see it that way, including Cedric “the Entertainer.”
“It actually feels amazing in here unlike what Seth (Rogen) was talking about. It feels good. We’re all vaxxed. We had to get vaxxed to come here. I got vaxxed. I did not have a reaction like Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend. I got Pfizer because I’m bougie. Pfizer is the Neiman Marcus of vaccines. Moderna, that’s Macy’s. Johnson & Johnson, that’s TJ Maxx.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Yes, it would feel amazing to gallivant about as people have always done in the past, nary a mask in sight.
Too bad in Biden’s world freedom is for the rich, elite, leftists.
Which is precisely why Janice Dean, a Fox News meteorologist, made a rather salient observation.
“I think after seeing all the celebs without masks or social distancing in a packed tent at @TheEmmys we should pretty much move on with our lives.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
It would be great to move on, aside from the fact that the Biden administration has turned the presidency into a full-time assault on liberties and conservatives.
Adding insult to injury, Newsom actually codifies the protections of the Hollywood elite. Just look at the fine print regarding “mask mandate exceptions,” courtesy of the LA Department of Health.
“[Mask mandate exceptions] are made for film, television, and music productions, as additional safety modifications are made for these controlled interactions.” [Source: Fox News]
Ah. So, somehow, entertainment productions are magically exempt from COVID protocols because of mysterious “additional” modifications.
Seems airlines and airports have also taken “additional” modifications, yet Americans are still forced to wear masks everywhere.
Rather remarkable …
At least Twitter users have had a ball with the hypocrisy.
“Is ‘science’ the reason celebrities don’t need masks at the Emmys but all the hourly employees do?” [Source: Fox News]
On top of that, it’s the same type of “science” used by the Biden administration, as they appear to protect illegals and their right to disregarding COVID protocols the same way Newsom protects his elites.
Which is precisely why a recent opinion piece from David Marcus is especially salient now.
“Furthermore, we have been told again and again that masking is less about protecting oneself and more about protecting others around us. Given that these vaccinated celebrities are perfectly capable of spreading the virus, just like any other vaccinated person, on what possible basis should they be exempt from masking rules?
There is only one answer to that question. It is a new COVID caste system. And it is something Americans should not and increasingly will not put up with.” [Source: Fox News]
