Just when you thought liberals couldn’t get any more insane … they have. Just when you thought leftists on the West Coast could not become any more like the Gestapo … they have.
California, home to hapless Hollywood and tyrannical tech, has decided, in its great, tech-infused, Hollywood-influenced wisdom, to dictate how people are to spend their Thanksgiving holidays.
That is correct: A holiday celebrated in privacy with friends and family, well out of the public domain, is now suddenly subject to leftist monitoring. And this monitoring comes with some of the most absurd restrictions released in recent weeks, and the past few weeks have seen some real doozies.
However, these types of recommendations really take the cake. Not only do they apparently ban people from eating inside the home at all, but guests apparently cannot use the restroom unless they are frequently “sanitized.”
Oh, guests also need to sit six feet apart from one another and wear masks every single time they are not actively chewing food or drinking liquid.
Megyn Kelly has openly called out the insanity of Newsome on Twitter, neatly summarizing his stance as follows:
“CA Gov’s Thxgiving insanity: Must be held *OUTSIDE*; Guests may use bathrm inside if sanitized; Masks on while not eating; Singing ‘strongly discouraged;’ Max of two hours together; 6 feet *mandated* in all directions b/twn all at table & otherwise.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Curiously, Newsome didn’t even cite a single “expert” that validates the scientific reasoning underlying his horribly restrictive plans for Thanksgiving. Perhaps because there are none.
Considering that California has had no issue mass riots, violent crime, and complete anarchy, it’s especially troubling that the state feels the need to be so invasive in people’s private homes, which are disturbing exactly no one.
Furthermore, what is even more disturbing is that these Thanksgiving guidelines are really just a stricter realization of state guidelines issued in mid-March, which also called for a ban of any gathering that had three or more households present.
“Gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. When people from different households mix, this increases the risk of transmission of COVID-19 …
Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited. This includes everyone present, including hosts and guests. … Participating in multiple gatherings with different households or groups is strongly discouraged. … All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized. … Gatherings may occur in outdoor spaces that are covered by umbrellas, canopies, awnings, roofs, and other shade structures provided that at least three sides of the space (or 75%) are open to the outdoors.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Wow. “Gatherings that include more than 3 households?” Seriously? And, by the way, wouldn’t a number of these “peaceful protests” represent bringing together people from different households and different backgrounds?
Granted, perhaps a percentage of the Antifa scum lives in the streets or Starbucks bathrooms instead of a formal “house,” but should they not also be counted as part of this “household?”
Oh, and people also apparently cannot sing or shout without wearing masks, because, you know … COVID.
“Singing, chanting, and shouting are strongly discouraged, but if they occur, the following rules and recommendations apply: All people who are singing or chanting should wear a face covering at all times while singing or chanting, including anyone who is leading a song or chant. Because these activities pose a very high risk of COVID-19 transmission, face coverings are essential to reduce the spread of respiratory droplets and fine aerosols.”
Hm. So how about when the crowds were screaming, “I hope they f***ing die,” about police fighting for their lives inside of a Los Angeles hospital? That didn’t seem to follow proper protocol.
Or, for that matter, how about all the leftists screaming, shouting, and otherwise strongly encouraging violence at all their “peaceful protests?” Or, even better, how about the BLM activists that march up to diners, harass them, scream at them, or, in some cases, even snatch drinks from the diners’ tables and drink them?
It didn’t seem many masks were present in any of those scenarios, and it is safe to say that screaming in someone’s face is more likely to transmit COVID than a private Thanksgiving gathering.
In a nutshell, California’s mantra could be defined as follows:
Support violence. Divide people.
It’s almost as though the state government wants to keep friends and family perpetually separated for some reason. Almost as though the state does not want people to be close together at all, as proximity to one another would mean less dependency on the state.
One is starting to get a better sense of why Trump had such a huge rally in Beverly Hills. Unfortunately, since California allows so many illegals to vote, it is unlikely Trump will take California.
However, if there were no illegals in California, it would be interesting to see if he did.
With just over a week away to the election, it is imperative to vote Trump, especially if you want the freedom to spend the holidays with your loved ones.
