It’s hypocrisy at its finest and it shows up everywhere Democrats are attempting to enforce random mitigation measures for COVID-19. These measures are almost always disobeyed by the Democrats trying to enforce them on everyone else. That’s us, the little people.
For example, Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl had voted to ban outdoor dining in Los Angeles, as originally reported by Fox11. However, shortly after making the deciding vote to ban outdoor dining, she then went to Il Forno, one of her favorite restaurants for a dinner before the ban she imposed on Los Angelinos went into effect.
Kuehl said the reason she voted to ban outdoor dining was because “this is a serious health emergency and we must take it seriously.”
“The servers are not protected from us, and they’re not protected from their other tables that they’re serving at that particular time, plus all the hours in which they’re working,” she added.
Her actions are eerily familiar to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s decision to eat with friends at the fine dining restaurant French Laundry in Napa Valley, and then immediately apologize afterwards when he was caught.
Alex Jordan, the owner of Eat at Joe’s Restaurant in Redondo Beach, jabbed at Newsom by hanging a “French Laundry” banner outside his business. The governor was forced to apologize earlier this month after he was photographed dining at the luxury restaurant with a large group, in violation of his own guidelines.…The governor was forced to apologize earlier this month after he was photographed dining at the luxury restaurant with a large group, in violation of his own guidelines.Fox Business

American and Southwest stand by vaccine mandate, despite Abbott’s ban
American Airlines and Southwest Airlines are still planning to comply with President Biden’s executive order regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The order requires all their employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8t. As a result, they will be ignoring Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on vaccine mandates.
Folks, vaccination requirements work. pic.twitter.com/XuBsOQxGaN— President Biden (@POTUS) October 9, 2021
Abbott announced his own executive order, effectively banning mandates even from private employers, on Tuesday. “In another instance of federal overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workforce disruptions that threaten Texas’ continued recovery from the COVID-19 disaster,” Abbott said. “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced.”
Yet both airlines are requiring their employees to be vaccinated by Nov. 24. This comes despite Southwest’s impromptu cancellation of over 2,000 flights over the weekend. At the time, the airline blamed the cancellations on air traffic control and weather conditions. However, SaraACarter.com was unable to verify that any other airline had to cancel near as many flights for the same reasons. This has left many to speculate that Southwest actually cancelled flights due to their employees walking out as a direct result of the mandate.
Reporter Jack Posobiec tweeted out a flyer circulating among the anti-vaxx Southwest employees. Currently, they are planning a protest outside of Southwest headquarters next Monday. The protest will be called “Freedom Not Force.”
Southwest told Reuters it “would be expected to comply with the President’s Order to remain compliant as a federal contractor.” In addition, American similarly said Abbott’s order does not change anything.
