It appears that California Governor Gavin Newsom has ran far down the moral highroad with no signs of stopping with his latest escapade.
The One Party politician sank deeply into hyperbolic quicksand after he responded to criticism levied by Georgia’s 14th District House of Representatives’ member, Marjorie Taylor Green concerning his vaccine mandates.
The mandates, which obligates state and healthcare workers to get what has been referred to as the “jab”, in order to supposedly immunize or inoculate themselves has been referred to as “unconscionable” by Taylor Green in a tweet.
In response to a previous tweet by Newsom citing exhaustion over repeated comparisons of the vaccine mandates to the Holocaust, Taylor Green tweeted that “you know what is exhausting to the people of California? Your communist dictatorship. Shutting down businesses, closing churches, schools, and beaches is disgraceful Mandating vaccines against people’s will is unconscionable which is why you’re being recalled.”. Taylor Green drawing attention to the ever louder clarion calls for the Governor’s recall, in the wake of his less than admirable handling of both the wildfires and the drought.
In response to the caustic tweet, Newsom, went for her throat, tweeting back, “Disgraceful? Here’s a word — murderous. Your anti-vaccine lies are literally killing Americans. Your own supporters are following you off a cliff and into the ICU. Come clean about vaccines — they save lives.”.
There is an unusual ideological hypocrisy at play where the lifelong pro-choice Newsom doesn’t seem to grasp the “my body, my choice” argument when it is given in a different context. The draconian practice of mandating vaccines and the wider concerns of ceding legislation of bodily autonomy to the Government deserve observation and seriousness in the discussion.
The California recall election, which will take place on September 14th, where there will be 46 candidates, including prominent Conservative commentator Larry Elder, vying for the 50% vote that it would take unseat Newsom.
