Do as we say, not as we do!
That has been the mantra of lockdown tyrants across the country.
Although there are certainly some worthy challengers, the politicians of Commiefornia may take the prize for hypocrisy.
Just a few days after issuing a new travel advisory, lawmakers jetted off for a week-long conference in Hawaii.
Social media was ablaze with fiery comments calling out the COVID hypocrites:
Who is “the ruling class” is America?
It’s the people who get to impose endless, pointless, stupid covid rules on everyone else while constantly and blatantly exempting themselves and their political allies https://t.co/OWdgMHxFGn

This is ‘do as I say, not as I do….one of the reasons there is a complete disconnect between ordinary citizens in California and the political leadership.” Story by @mcgreevy99 https://t.co/xY0LokIGfO

California state lawmakers are flying to Hawaii and partying it up with lobbyists while telling their constituents not to travel because of the coronavirus lockdown. We are being governed by hypocrites who tell us what to do and then break their own rules. This is unacceptable.

As reported by FOX News:
The conference is taking place at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui, where rooms reportedly run $600 and over per night, with policy discussions and “schmoozing” with corporate sponsors, the Chronicle said Monday. Its website says the event is four days long and the purpose “is to provide a setting, away from the Capitol, for elected officials and a diverse group of industry experts to consider policy matters in a nonpartisan manner.”
News of the event came just days after the California Department of Public Health issued a travel advisory, urging residents to stay home and not to leave their “region.”
“Californians are encouraged to stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel to other states or countries,” reads the advisory from Friday. “Avoiding travel can reduce the risk of virus transmission and bringing the virus back to California.” It also recommends people returning to California to quarantine for 14 days after arrival.
The project reportedly paid for guests’ five-night stay at the Fairmont, as well as $550 for airfare.
The article later points out the increasing scrutiny California politicians are facing regarding their latest decree:
The Hawaii conference was just the latest to raise questions about how politicians spent their time while directing citizens to isolate themselves. For example, Gov. Gavin Newsom came under fire after attending a dinner party with his wife on Nov. 6. The gathering included at least a dozen people and took place at an upscale restaurant in Napa Valley.
A Sacramento Bee editorial blasted the decision. “[T]his is a bad look for an elected official at any time, but especially during a pandemic that has claimed more than 18,000 lives in California and devastated the state’s economy” in addition to the fact that the dinner was in honor of a lobbyist.
Pelosi’s salon appointment.
Newsom’s dinner party.
Hawaiian vacation for state lawmakers.
How many times are we going to let these Communist tyrants spit in our faces and laugh about it?
They have no authority shutting down businesses, forcing you to muzzle, or limiting the number of guests in your home.
When will folks finally say enough is enough?
