The United States Constitution is a very unique document. Apart from the Magna Carta, it is the only document in the history of man which places rules and regulations on the government, rather than the governed. It does not outright give Americans their rights, as such rights are inherently given to us by God and not by Man. It details what freedoms and liberties Americans enjoy which the government cannot take away… unless there is a viral pandemic, apparently.
But the reason I say this is because, like I said, it is extremely rare for a document, written and signed by people who would be in government, to restrict the freedoms of the government, for that is the only way that the people can be free. Every other time in history, rules and laws were written to restrict the freedom of the governed, as opposed to the government. And seemingly far too many are perfectly content with the norm, not the exception.
Throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic (which as more information was made known to the public, it appears to have been majorly overblown, but you’ll be called a “denier” and basically a heretic for recognizing that fact), various different governments, both at home and abroad, have instituted different policies to “combat” the virus. Most have opted to issue lockdown orders with varying degrees of strictness. Others have opted to remain open the entire time. And others tried the former until common sense kicked in and opted to open back up.
However, while many who opted to lock things down are still pushing for such measures, at various different points, many of them have, in some cases repeatedly, broken the very rules that they have instituted on others.
I have already written about how Nancy Pelosi (she herself did not order lockdowns in her district, since she does not have such power, but she is an advocate for strict lockdowns, so she is still a hypocrite) disobeyed lockdown orders to go to a hair salon which she ordered be open just to service her (and later got caught and went on to blame the salon owner because the princess cannot be imperfect), but many other Democrats have done things that they have strongly urged or ordered other people not to do.
The Federalist has a great list of such people, some of which I will share with you here (not all of them, since it would make this article too long).
Some of the most notable examples of utter Leftist hypocrisy come from people like Austin Mayor Steven Adler, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Let’s begin with Austin Mayor Adler because this one is actually hilarious. In the popular (and somehow still on-going) TV show “The Simpsons”, there is an episode where Japanese factory workers spread a virus to Springfield via the shipping of juicers. At one point in the episode, we see an emergency announcement from Mayor Quimby, where he says that because of the epidemic, he had cancelled his vacation to the Bahamas. He made it look, through particular camera angles, as though he was still in his office in Springfield, with a fake cutout of his office in the background. However, a man playing the steel drums is seen walking across the shot, panning out and showing Quimby is already in the Bahamas, as shown in the clip below.
The reason I talk about this is because Mayor Adler did something extremely similar to this, as back in November, he threatened Austin residents with another lockdown if they didn’t stay at home for the holidays… while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
On a Facebook video, Adler said: “We need to stay home if you can. This is not the time to relax. We are going to be looking really closely… We may have to close things down if we are not careful.”
All the while he is enjoying his time in a resort town in Mexico. It’s so egregiously hypocritical that, prior to this, it was only seen on a satirical cartoon.
Next, there is Gov. Newsom, who enjoyed a fancy dinner with more than a dozen people after having prohibited gatherings of more than three households prior to Thanksgiving. Photos of the dinner showed that not one of the CDC guidelines were followed. No one wore masks, no one socially distanced, and it was a dinner held indoors.
Literally all of those things Newsom requires of California residents but because he knows that nothing bad will happen to him politically, he disregards such a thing, at least in secret. He knows that only chumps blindly follow these orders and he knows that even the ones that are against them do not have the power to do a damn thing about it, so he enjoys breaking the very rules he imposes on others.
That is a constant theme for tyrants throughout history, let alone this year with this virus. And when Newsom got caught, he gave a non-apology, supposedly “admitted his mistake” and went on to tighten lockdown restrictions further.
Then there is Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, who actually did something very similar to Adler. The mayor boarded a flight to Houston on his way to visit his daughter in Mississippi while demanding that Denver residents do not travel for Thanksgiving.
In a tweet, he wrote: “Pass the potatoes, not COVID. Stay home as much as you can, especially if you’re sick. Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners. Avoid travel, if you can. Order your holiday meal from a local eatery. Shop online with a small business for Black Friday.”
According to The Federalist, prior to takeoff, “Hancock had also urged city staff to cancel their travel plans for the holiday. ‘As the holidays approach, we all long to be with our families with person [sic], but with the continued rise in cases, I’m urging you to refrain from travel this Thanksgiving,’ Hancock write [sic] in an email to employees.”
So the guy didn’t even let his own staff break the rules. Only he got to do it, huh? Not that I would have been content with the staff being allowed to break the rules anyway. It’s b.s. that such rules are being made for everyone, but the people implementing those rules do not have to live with the consequences of their actions. Their jobs are not in peril, their livelihoods are not in peril and their futures are not in peril. They don’t care because they don’t have to care, so they do whatever they want whenever they want. Such is the life of the antipathic tyrant.
At any rate, next there is Lori Lightfoot, who has repeatedly broken the rules she herself has imposed or at the very least openly backs and supports. For example, according to The Federalist, back in late March, she “admonished residents wishing to open back up hair salons. ‘Getting your roots done is not essential,’ Lightfoot said. Days later, Lightfoot pushed her way into a shut-down salon closed under the state governor’s lockdown order for a special treatment.”
And the truly egregious part of that? When she got caught and was asked about her hypocrisy, she got annoyed and said: “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media, and I’m out in the public eye.”
Translation: “I’m important, you’re not, suck it.”
The sheer arrogance boils my very blood. She is, in no unclear terms, basically saying that because she is an important figure in Chicago, the rules don’t apply to her. Could you imagine if a Republican had said anything CLOSE to that? As annoying as Republican governors who have no guts to reopen their states may be, at least I have yet to catch them breaking the very rules they set for other people. They may be cowardly and/or idiotic to continue with ruinous lockdown orders, but at least they have the decency to adhere to the orders they have put into place. Democrats get to do whatever they want and they know perfectly well that the media won’t draw attention to them or call them out for it, and if they somewhat do, all they have to do is offer the least sincere non-apology ever and they’re good.
Anyway, returning to Lightfoot (I did say she is a repeat offender), following Biden’s “win”, Lightfoot went out to celebrate with other commies in a super-spreader event. Obviously, doing that would garner some amount of questioning from someone in the media, and Lightfoot’s excuse for attending such a super-spreader event was that the “crowd was gathered whether I was there or not.”
So it’s okay for only CERTAIN crowds to gather, so long as they gather for a Leftist cause, such as BLM riots or the celebration of an illegitimate victory. And because everyone else was doing it, like the role model that she is, Lightfoot chose to go with the flow and attend the super-spreader.
Take that event and make it about any other topic, such as a party where drugs are present, and take that excuse, and you would have a LOT of drug-addicted kids. “The others were doing drugs whether or not I was doing them, so it’s okay that I did them.” Clearly, Lightfoot’s parents never gave her the question about if her friend jumped off a bridge, would she do it as well.
In any case, finally, we have the Nursing Home Killer himself: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
According to The Federalist, Cuomo went to some political event in Georgia back in July, where he was seen not wearing a mask and in close proximity to a number of other people. The kicker is that Georgia was on New York’s travel advisory list back then, meaning that those who traveled to New York from Georgia were under orders to quarantine for 14 days. What exactly do you think the chances are that he actually did that?
Given what he and many other Democrat tyrants have done in the past few months, I’d say it’s absolute zero.
The Federalist mentions others, such as L.A. Mayor Garcetti, but this article is long enough as it is and I believe just these examples make the point well enough on their own. These people are sick tyrants, unconcerned with the effects their destructive policies have had and will have on the very people they are supposed to serve because they have deluded themselves into believing that they are doing all of it for the good of the people (even despite them not following such orders, potentially endangering the people they are with, so one is bound to call into question their intentions).
These people are tyrants, and there is little evidence to prove otherwise. I just hope enough of the American people recognize this and fight for the freedoms afforded to them by God and detailed by the Constitution.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
