Monday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom once again ordered the closure of many businesses in the state (including worship services) due to an “alarming” rise in COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus cases.
However, just as with fellow leftist Bill DeBlasio in New York City, the one exception to bans on any large gatherings is BLM protests, which are still perfectly fine, even though the spike in cases has correlated to them much more than to business reopenings. Also to proximity to the US-Mexico border, which Newsom has been trying to erase.
In announcing his latest mass closings, Newsom scolded Californians, saying, “The data suggests not everyone is acting with common sense.” For once, I agree with him. Just look at who they elected Governor.
