Gov. Newsom’s Cringeworthy Florida Ad Shows us His Hubris

Newsom ‘still claims emergency powers running one of the the most autocratic state regimes in history’

By Katy Grimes, July 4, 2022 9:11 am

Is California Gov. Gavin Newsom running for reelection or for U.S. President? His new cringeworthy television ad airing in Florida indicates the latter, which is apropos. He has spent the last three years treating the residents of California like subjects as he casts his eye upon 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The 30-second ad is running on Fox News Monday July 4th, and is directed at Newsom’s freedom-loving nemesis Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his policies, drawing a stark contrast with California, which is still under Newsom’s COVID State of Emergency order – more than 820 days.

“It’s Independence Day, so let’s talk about what’s going on in American,” Newsom says in the open.

“Freedom is under attack in your state.”

“Republican leaders are banning books, making it harder to vote, restricting speech in the classroom, even criminalizing women and doctors.”

Let’s unpack his accusations.

“Freedom is under attack in your state,” Newsom tells Floridians – the same Floridians who were not locked down for two years, or forced to wear masks and get vaccines; whose kids weren’t locked out of school and forced to Zoom school from home; whose kids played sports and enjoyed normal activities and socialization while California kids suffered immeasurably with no sports or clubs or dances or graduations.

And, Californians’ “freedoms” have been stripped as Newsom and the state’s Democrat politicians refuse to responsibly deal with the homeless drug-addicted, mentally ill vagrants living on our streets, in our parks, along rivers, accosting and attacking people in parking lots, and near businesses, and in rotting downtowns where they work and live.

Californians’ freedom is gone when hardened criminals are released from jails and prison to the streets by Gavin Newsom, to prey upon businesses and residents. Violent crime is so prevalent in the state it has spiked in the cities, yet police are being defunded and repurposed. Felonies have been  reclassified as misdemeanors, and misdemeanors are now citations. Criminals are let out back to the streets to terrorize the people.

Florida doesn’t look like this, yet every California city does:

Newsom tells Floridians: “Republican leaders are banning books, making it harder to vote, restricting speech in the classroom, even criminalizing women and doctors.”

Is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis really “banning books?” Actually, under Gov. Ron DeSantis, Florida has eliminated “critical race theory” from curricula in its schools. “The Florida Department of Education has released examples of what it calls ‘problematic’ material that led it to ban dozens of math textbooks — including a lesson with an algebra graph measuring racial prejudice,” the NY Post reported. Gov. DeSantis took charge after parents were outraged at the indoctrination and even exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts under the guise of public education curricula. California students are being fed a steady diet of CRT, vile sex indoctrination, “unconscious bias,” while being deprived of U.S. History, English, Math, and real Science.

Newsom continues in the ad:

“I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight, or join us in California.”

“We still believe in freedom, freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and the freedom to love.”

“Don’t let them take your freedom.”

Newsom says, “We still believe in freedom, freedom of speech.” That freedom of speech Newsom talks about has been greatly eroded, particularly in his State Capitol where members of the public are still limited or kept from testifying in legislative committee hearings. Members of the public and lobbyists are still forced to social distance, and lawmakers offices are still not open to the public.

And parents haven’t been able to experience that “freedom of speech” at school board meetings without getting labeled “terrorists” and “extremists” for objecting to sexualized school curriculum and Critical race theory.

Newsom said California believes in “freedom to choose.” This is code for abortion on demand in California, the Abortion Sanctuary State. Sadly, the babies killed don’t have a choice.

Newsom said California believes in “freedom from hate.” Ask Conservatives how free they are from hate in the state. Ask the parents at school board meetings about the hate spewed at them for their objections to their kids being indoctrinated and mentally abused by radicalized activist teachers. Ask Conservative gay residents of California about they hate they receive.

Newsom said California believes in the “freedom to love.” All 50 states have this “freedom,” including Florida. On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that gay marriage is a constitutional right, meaning that all 50 states must allow it and that all existing bans are invalid.

Gavin Newsom has said he has “sub-zero interest” in running for President. This ad defies that.

But Assembly Minority Leader James Gallagher’s comment on Gov. Newsom’s ad is the best:

That’s some audacity! Gavin Newsom who fundamentally undermined individual and religious freedom and basic principles of democracy, who still claims emergency powers running one of the the most autocratic state regimes in history is trying to lecture FL Governor about “freedom.”

Gov. Newsom left a few important details out in his ad: What about California’s highest-in-the-nation gas prices anywhere from $7.00 to $10.00 per gallon? How’s that for some freedom? Or California’s median-priced home over $800,000? Or California’s highest-in-the-nation income taxes?

How about how Gov. Newsom and his predecessor banned oil and gas exploration. The vast energy resource beneath the San Joaquin Valley is known as the Monterey Shale. It has been reported that hydraulic fracturing could create 512,000 to 2.8 million new jobs, personal income growth of $40.6 billion to $222.3 billion, additional local and state government revenues from $4.5 billion to $24.6 billion, and an increase in state GDP by 2.6 percent to 14.3 percent on a per-person basis. But our Governor banned it.

How about California’s water rationing when we live on the Pacific Coast and this manufactured drought? California under Gov. Newsom is starving the Central Valley Farmers of water for their crops.

California has 1/3 of the nation’s welfare recipients and 12% of the country’s population. California is a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants, who now receive free health care, courtesy of the taxpayers.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s hubris with this ad shows he lacks any self-awareness or ability to feel how the people of California are suffering – a common trait found in most autocrats.

  1. Happy 4th of July Katy!
    Thank you for the insightful take on Newsolini’s Florida Ad. What a complete embarrassment he is. He really has no shame! I think he only ran that ad to go after the Palm Beach billionaire donations. In another example for his love of freedom is the continued effort to muzzle health care professionals from having an opposing opinion on experimental medical treatment. California Assembly Bill 2098, introduced by Assemblyman Evan Low threatens to take away medical licenses. Does that sound like a freedom loving act? Newsom and his democrat supermajority are out to crush the American spirit and dictate what cars we drive, how much water we can bathe in and force farmers to burn their crops. Looks to me California is looking more like the USSR and not the USA!

    1. Not sure what you think is wrong with his statement. If you are a extremist Evangelist, I understand. If you are a Fascist, I totally get it. Other than that or being a card carrying Nazi, I don’t get it. nice when does any woman vote for less female freedom? A Russian posing as a California girl with a fake name and a brand new account….ya. I see that.

      1. Ha, you are funny! Nice try troll.
        Happy 4th of July.
        I love the 1A, you can say what you want and I get to laugh at it.

      2. Oh great, a silly new troll who is an idiot on top of everything else. But it’s a bit over the top, don’t you think? Your act needs work. Or wait, is this Gavin again, monitoring Globe comments? Sigh.

        1. Too funny, Chancey was able to somehow get a dig on Christians She/He also snuck in the N-word(Nazi). They also made sure whoever disagrees with Newsom’s take on freedom is called a Russian Bot. It just is too silly and apparent she/he was reading off a script that just went terribly wrong, maybe it was Kamala????. Wait maybe not, I was not referred to as a racist.

          1. HA HA! That’s good, CG. Yeah, maybe Kamala, but probably not for that very reason. 🙂

      3. one of the most retarded comments ever read. Bot or dupe, basically the same empty head being filled by puppet masters.

  2. Hopefully, DeSantis, or Florida Republicans will put out a point by point rebuttal ad, showing the real Newsome for all of Florida and the country to see.

    1. That would be funny. how do you rebutt the truth. They are restricting women’s health. They are burning books. They are passing laws that make it harder for people to vote. How do you deny that?

      1. Wrong on all counts, Marcus. At some point the fetus has an interest. Feel free to debate when that is, it is far from settled. School books need to reflect facts, not indoctrination. No one is burning books, they are simply not accepting CRT and gender dysphoric garbage in FL classrooms. Finally, they are making it harder to vote illegally. Face it, you’re totally outclassed here. I know it’s hard to reason with only half a brain; nevertheless, take your DNC talking points and shove them.

    2. As if you know the “real” Newsome. And as if the California globe is trustworthy (the media BBB thinks not). So yeah.

    3. Just show a montage of Floridians seeing Newsom’s ad and laughing hysterically, falling off the sofa, out of the recliner, beach loungers, laughing from boat decks. Maybe ending with “What are you smoking, Gavin?”

  3. That’s rich coming from you, Gov Gruesome, the closest thing to a dictator we have ever had the displeasure of witnessing in our otherwise blessed country and in our once-Golden State; a state that is so beautiful, that was once so free and prosperous, not perfect of course, but so varied and resourceful, where once a person could be an individual and pursue happiness with the protection of the rule of law, alongside a majority of good people who chose to live here too, all before you metaphorically armed yourself, Gov Gav, with the biggest flamethrower you could find and selfishly laid waste to as much of our beloved California as you could destroy just so you could promote yourself and give power to yourself.

  4. I just had to laugh as Newsom speaks and points his fingers at himself. 🙂 I hope some group runs another Florida Ad showing the people there what California REALLY looks like. I am sure that the Globe could provide a treasure trove of California photos showing the effects of Newsom’s dictatorship.

    1. That is so funny because it’s true and I had never before (consciously) noticed that the guy constantly points at himself. Hah!

      1. “Gavin Newsom has said he has “sub-zero interest” in running for President.”

        Well, Showandtell, I have news for the math-challenged governor. “Interest” cannot be less than zero – so his hyperbole indicates deceit. Don’t know whose idea it was to run this Florida Ad (was it Dee Dee Myers?) but I hope that Newsom keeps doing it. The opposition will have a field day running this same Ad showing the polar opposite of what Newsom claims about California using the Mario Kart’s own words. (https://blog.electkevinkiley.com/gov-newsoms-embarrassing-mario-kart-video/) In the end, poetic justice will obtain and Newsom will join Michael Dukakis in the ignominious glory derived from pretending to be something HE is NOT. But to Dukakis’ credit, at least he chose to ride in a real TANK instead of a cartoon KART. (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1280315/Michael-Dukakis-tank-features-1988-Bush-attack-ad.html)

        Wishing all the readers and contributors to the Globe a Happy 4th.

    2. You mean the cool cities> Maybe the beaches and the mountains? All the sports teams that kick Florida ass every year? The beautiful people from all the different lands that get along well. At least until the Fascist Republicans show up and make trouble? Newsom was VOTED in and we like him. DiSantos was gerrymandered in and no one likes him.. he’s a liar and a bigot. If he died in a boating accident, no one would go search for the body.

      1. So many natural assets, but only the super-rich and illegals are moving to CA. Democrats are chasing out the productive class despite the beaches and mountains (which, btw, are becoming more and more the exclusive domain of the power elite in CA). But keep whoring out your opinion for Democrats, Marcus. Maybe they will throw you some hog slop before they throw you up against the wall.

  5. He loves freedom of speech so much that he anxiously awaits signing new gun laws that are a product of the gut and amend process, which avoids the public hearings that allow citizens to express their opinions on yet more laws that will only punish the law abiding. Some freedom of speech.

    His idea of freedom of speech is having his DOJ’s AG releasing the names, driver’s license numbers and home addresses of hundreds of thousands of those same law-abiding citizens and then expecting to get away with saying that that same DOJ will ‘investigate what happened’.

    Living in Newsom’s California is like living in a bad dream that never ends.

  6. I’ve tried to come back and rebutt a few of the more blatant hate comments, but the moderator evidently doesn’t tolerate decenting views. They’ve deleted every one. Perhaps if I said disantos was a good guy, they’d let that lie get by?

    1. “decenting views”
      Should be ‘dissenting views’.
      Thanks for playing, illiterate troll.

      BTW, I don’t hate you, I pity you.

  7. That P.O.S. NWO green Communist let his true colors show years ago with “it’s coming, whether you like it or not”

  8. Sadly, Gavin will be re-anointed in November. Michael Shellenberger gave it a shot. Probably more important he just keeps being a pointed critic of the California Democrat Party and its destructive self-serving policies. For all the political hyperventilating in California…we got a 20% primary turnout? Of the ones paying attention at all, they really just want SFgate, Kron4, ABC7, San Jose Mercury News, LA Times, CBS2, etc, etc, to tel them how to think, and how to vote. Nevermind the fact that the entire educational apparatus seems to wired with one primary purpose…to produce Democrat Voters to maintain the same power structure. Not on the nose all the time more like, “Did you see what the Republicans did!” and not nearly enough “Are you seeing what these Democrats are doing with the Homeless Industrial Complex!” It is embedded in K-12 and beyond. I was so focused on crazy things the CTA were saying, I had no idea how hyperpartisan the admin had become over the years. I mean, I had some idea…but they are off the charts nuts. I feel sorry for teachers that really do just want to teach things reading, writing, and actual STEM. Perhaps some did not realize they were signing up for political activism at the time.

  9. As explained to me by a pro abortion woman, abortion is mostly future crime control. The argument is that birthing unwanted black and Latino babies creates feral children which acts as a drain on state resources. California isn’t kidding anyone.

  10. I live in california there is NO freedom here!!!!! It’s a joke it’s a communist state they force vaccines my daughter can’t even go to a public school because we refuse to give he the vaccine. Homelessness is everywere every freeway exit encampment everywere. Our kids have to walk past them needles and fences on the ground . It is disgusting and Newsome has done nothing to help. He needs to go and california if far from free.
