If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the Right is fueled by liberty, the Left is fueled by hypocrisy.
To the Left, the only thing that matters is what YOU are doing. They have their noses in everybody else’s business but their own.
They expect everybody to follow the rules except for them, their families, and their cronies—and as Thanksgiving approaches and Democrat officials roll out their holiday COVID restrictions, we’re seeing examples of this kind of hypocrisy popping up at breakneck speed.
If you recall, it was just a few weeks ago that California Governor and Nancy Pelosi’s nephew Gavin Newsom was caught attending an unmasked dinner party in a swanky restaurant, even while insisting that citizens avoid such gatherings. He apologized for it, but all while issuing even more stringent lockdown measures for his state (you can read all about it HERE).
With leaders like that, it makes sense why so many people are leaving the state in DROVES.
Too bad they’re going to new states and voting for the same kind of people with the same kinds of policies and will soon destroy their new homes as well (sorry, Texas… seems like you’re next on the list).
Across the board, the Left loves telling the world what to do…
They just can’t seem to follow the same instructions themselves
Of course, Newsom isn’t the only one.
Back when the lockdowns started and Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer instituted some of the harshest orders any state has seen yet, her husband was able to go outside and ride on his boat in a lake.
Meanwhile, Whitmer wasn’t allowing people to mow their own lawns or let their kids play in their backyard.
It’s truly baffling just how cluelessly hypocritical the Left can be.
However, these all pale in comparison to what Fredo’s big brother is doing in New York.
Andrew Cuomo, who recently won an Emmy for his “masterful” COVID briefings (but not his COVID response) might have put them all to shame with his recent act.
Just a few weeks ago, Cuomo said, “My personal advice is you don’t have a family gathering, even for Thanksgiving. My personal advice is the best way to say ‘I love you’ this Thanksgiving, the best way to say ‘I’m thankful for you’ is to say ‘I love you so much, I’m so thankful for you, that I don’t want to endanger you, and I don’t want to endanger our family and I don’t want to endanger our friends, so we’ll celebrate virtually.’”
Basically, he’s telling everybody that they should be alone.
Well, COVID is surging and they feel the best way to avoid a catastrophe is to stay apart.
In some states, you’re not allowed to gather in groups more than ten; in others, no more than six
Some places tell you that you’re supposed to have individual meals while others say you should have no more than three households in one place. It’s loony!
Rules For Thee But Not For Me!
However, that obviously isn’t what Cuomo plans to do for his own Thanksgiving meal.
On a radio newscast, he revealed that “My mom is going to come up and two of my girls. The plans change. But that’s my plan.”
So, while he expects the rest of his state to follow his orders and celebrate “virtually,” he’s bringing two of his daughters and his mother in for the holiday.
You really can’t make this stuff up.
However, he was correct about plans changing, because as soon as this comment hit the wires, he received an immediate backlash over his blatant hypocrisy.
His administration tried to cover it up by saying he only said that because he was trying to let his mom down easy, insisting that he never truly intended to invite his mom to dinner…
But the damage has been done.
However, we doubt that it was a fib.
Odds are he was going to bring mom and his daughters in because he doesn’t care about whether or not he follows the rules…
All he cares about is what you’re doing.
