Considering how deep-blue San Francisco is, I am not even a little bit surprised to find that the people who run that city are massive hypocrites. As it turns out, even as local and state politicians have argued and mandated that public gyms (as in regular people, as opposed to the politicians, use them) as well as other “non-essential” businesses must be closed, that seemingly did not apply to the amenities that affect the ruling class, only the peasant class.
According to The Washington Examiner, “Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus.”
So, in San Francisco alone, we have a salon who had been ordered to be closed for months and was hemorrhaging money only to be told to reopen for one person in particular, that being her highness Nancy Pelosi (who hilariously tried to blame the salon owner, showing just how insufferable she is), and now, we come to find that gyms for government workers have been open this entire time, even despite the warnings those very people were giving public gyms about how “unsafe” it was for people to work out in indoor gyms.
What a sick joke it is to live in Commiefornia. Understandably, one gym owner told a local NBC News station: “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating. Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”
Well, of course there are no repercussions and ramifications even while they are being exposed. YOU ARE DEALING WITH DEMOCRATS! Hypocrisy doesn’t stick to them. They do not get punished for blatant corruption.
For crying out loud, the current Democrat nominee has deep business ties with CHINA AND UKRAINE! He is essentially a puppet for Xi Jinping, but the media will never bring it up and they would even pretend that it doesn’t matter at all and play it off as a non-issue.
Sen. Diane Feinstein was caught employing a Chinese national for DECADES and literally NOTHING came of it, other than the Chinese national getting fired. No repercussions for Feinstein or anything. She was exposing national-security secrets and NOTHING came of it. Not to mention she was part of that whole pre-COVID stock market fraud, but the media focused largely on Sen. Loeffler.
The last Democrat nominee literally had a foundation that would take money from the Saudis and the Chinese (and whomever else, really) in exchange for “favors”. What do you think “pay-for-play” was all about?
Hypocrisy is a charge that does not stick to the Democrats because the media sides with the Democrats. The only standards the Left has are double standards, where we, the peasants, are supposed to listen and obey them even as they do something entirely contrary to what they tell us.
People are not allowed to go to salons, but Nancy Pelosi can (funny enough, in order to save some amount of face, the city began to ease on restrictions for salon owners following Pelosi being exposed). People are not allowed to go to the gym, but government workers can.
According to the Washington Examiner, the “gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1.”
Now, I can understand gyms for police officers being open. Police precincts usually have gyms within them and it makes sense that out of everyone, they should still be allowed to work out in gyms (especially given the current social climate). They have to uphold the law and do many of the same tasks they usually do outside of a pandemic, so it makes sense for their gyms to still be open.
But what is a judge going to do with an open gym? Why does his or her gym get to be open for them? What need do government lawyers have to continue working out?
It makes sense for cops’ gyms to be open, given their line of work, but judges don’t go out hitting criminals with their gavel. Lawyers don’t go out hitting criminals with a case. Bailiffs, I suppose, could make sense given that they are supposed to maintain safety in the courtroom and they need to be physically fit to do so. But the others, apart from cops, don’t need their gyms to remain open, particularly as the rest of us plebs (I don’t live in San Francisco, but I doubt this double standard is exclusive to this city) are told we cannot go certain places or do certain activities.
Another gym owner put it how I just described it: “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do.”
Yep, you, the peasant, have to obey and eat bread, if you can get some, while the ruling class gets to do basically whatever they want (see: Nancy Pelosi, again) and get to eat cake (and then burn all those calories in government gyms).
“But Freddie, COVID can spread quickly if all gyms are open,” the ignoramus will argue. Okay, what sense does it make to claim that public gyms are dangerous but government gyms are not? If the argument is that the virus can spread quickly in an indoor area with plenty of people, who are naturally not going to be wearing masks as to avoid getting a lack of oxygen, then why is a public gym at all different from a gym in a government building?
Not that I expect the liberal ignoramus to be able to answer, let alone honestly. The Left will actually argue that, even as people are not allowed to go to the beach, people are allowed to protest and riot for a Leftist political cause. No masks or social distancing or other health and safety guidelines are required at such protests, but other people not participating must still abide by those rules.
You can’t go to church to pray but you can to set it on fire. You can’t go to a park with your family but you can with your communist revolutionary friends to tear down statues and deface public property.
These double standards are BLATANT and the Left does not get punished for it, apart perhaps from the polls. And even then, the polls didn’t show that they were suffering until the media began to cover and justify obvious criminal acts of destruction as being “mostly peaceful”, all with even a garbage study that says that 93% of the protests were peaceful, while ignoring that that means that there were nearly 600 RIOTS IN 220 LOCATIONS because there were THOUSANDS of protests all across the country in the last three months.
The Left is filled with hypocrites but that hardly seems to matter to some people or event to many. I hope that, given this, things will begin to change a little.
I cannot imagine that the local business owners in places like San Francisco, which have suffered some of the strictest lockdown measures in the country (alongside other deep-blue cities and states), will be too keen on continuing to vote for the Democrats that ruin their businesses and live like royalty, borderline literally.
Do I expect California to turn red this year? Not really. But I do expect some people to recognize just how the Left has been running things and see the results of such governance. San Francisco was literally a “s**thole” before this pandemic began, let alone during it. If there is any hope of cities getting out of the craphole that they are in and return to prosperity, they have to stop voting for those who blatantly hate them and enact policies that are meant to hurt them in every way possible.
The Left must be defeated at all costs and everywhere possible.
“He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
