Leftist politicians have no compunction regarding the issuance of increasingly draconian "Wuflu" edicts because they know the "Flustapo" will never come for them.
Rules are for little people.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom is happy to help us make our point.
This year Thanksgiving is going to be the new front in the war on the "Flumanchu."
Newsom has issued orders from headquarters that inform people this is the way the celebration will be conducted if they selfishly insist on giving thanks to God and reuniting with their families.
Those bitter, turkey-clingers have been told come rain or shine Thanksgiving dinner will take place outside. Attendance is limited to a maximum of three households, although as co-author Michael R. Shannon has observed elsewhere, there is still some dispute as to whether individuals with hyphenated last names count as one family or two.
People with larger families, complicated parenting overlaps or multi-generational "undocumented" families are forbidden to employ the obvious solution: eating in shifts like buzzards.
Each household must sit at a separate table which means there would be more mingling and sharing in a Zoom Thanksgiving than during a Newsom-approved event.
The host is also required to take attendance and all food must be in single-serve, disposable containers.
It goes without saying that all attendees will be required to wear face burkas until the first bite of turkey nugget is within three inches of their mouth.
Oh, yes . . .
The event is limited to maximum of two hours, then everyone is required to hit the road.
Newsom doesn’t have any problem with these picayune, intrusive, nit-picky rules because he knows none will be applied to him.
"Trix are for Kids," and rules are for California's little people.
Newsom’s attendance at a birthday party a few days ago is proof.
The party was inside, had more than three households and lasted until the participants were good and ready to stop.
When Newsom was confronted with the fact of his attendance, he did what leftists reflexively do. He lied. Then — he blamed someone else.
The Western Journal reports, "aides initially defended the governor" and claimed Newsome was blameless because the party was outside and at a restaurant. The problem was the party was inside.
Then Newsome blamed the restaurant, "While our family followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions, we should have modeled better behavior and not joined the dinner."
Finally, when all other options were exhausted, Newsom told the truth. "Gov. Gavin Newsom is now saying he made a mistake by attending a Nov. 6 birthday party in Napa that appears to have violated state COVID-19 rules."
And that is that. No tickets. No fines. No sanctions — at all.
Just a mild public shaming that Newsom will brush off.
"Kungflu" rules are for the rest of us and not for those who make the rules.
President Donald Trump's coronvirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas says it’s high time citizens rise up and reject unconstitutional rules based on pandemic panic.
We are in complete agreement.
