Well, I knew that leftists lived in a delusional state, but now we know exactly which state it is.
Like Monty Python’s Black Knight blustering that he’s the winner of a sword fight even with both arms and legs chopped off, California Gov. Gavin Newsom blustered yesterday that California represents the future of America and the GOP is headed for the “waste bin of history.”
My first reaction would be to point out that unlike parts of California, at least history HAS a waste bin. In L.A., garbage and feces from all the homeless people just pile up on the sidewalks until they’re overrun with rats carrying fleas that spread typhus. If California is the future of America, then we’d all better invest in hazmat suits. Or possibly build a big, beautiful wall between California and the rest of America.
Among the many distinctions of the former Golden State under leftist misleaders like Newsom are such impressive stats as the greatest income inequality in America, the highest gas taxes (about to go up yet again), the highest income taxes, yet the largest percentage of people on welfare, and the list goes on and on. With its wealthy lords living behind walls and its peasants searching for housing amid filth, squalor and disease, California is looking less like the future of America than like the distant past of Europe. All it’s missing is the Bubonic plague, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s coming along shortly.
It’s a state whose current incompetent leftist leaders inherited beautiful terrain and weather, as well as great wealth and resources from earlier, smarter generations, and are now in the process of driving it all into the ground as they drive the middle class to move out. And it has a Governor who can admit that a misconceived, over-budget bullet train to nowhere was a bad idea that will never be finished, then sue Washington to force the taxpayers to give the state a billion dollars for it anyway.
Newsom went out of his way to claim that he doesn’t care what Tucker Carlson says about him. But I think it might be instructive for him to listen. It’s certainly more educational to listen to virtually anyone else than to Gavin Newsom. Tucker opened his show last night with a close-up look at the leftist utopia that Newsom and his cohorts are transforming California into. Just be glad it’s television and not smell-a-vision:
