‘MaskGate’ and the Unserious Politicians Mocking the People of California

California is in a State of Emergency and is hosting the Super Bowl

By Katy Grimes, February 3, 2022 5:10 pm

Was it another French Laundry moment, or the latest installment of “MaskGate” at Sunday’s NFC Championship game in Los Angeles? Photos on social media brought us images of unmasked California Gov. Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, posing for pics with Magic Johnson, despite the Los Angeles County mask mandate and SoFi Stadium requirements.

Who can blame them? Wearing a mask everywhere you go, or all day is nauseating. Why can’t they admit this?

Press play to hear a narrated version of this story, presented by AudioHopper.

While California teens, children and even toddlers are still cruelly being forced to wear masks all day long in government schools throughout the state, and businesses are required to enforce indoor masking, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Mayors and celebrities were seen and photographed at the NFC Championship game looking normal without masks on, among 80,000 screaming fans. In fact, masks were not evident on anyone in the stands. 

The moment should have turned the tide; the mandates should have been lifted. But that’s not what happened.

Instead our unserious politicians doubled down on stupid.

Rather than apologizing for violating his own statewide mask orders as well as the LA mask orders, Gov. Newsom claimed he’d been wearing it the whole time and only shed his mask for the photo op with Johnson. But there are other photos and video of him maskless.

Claiming to be thoughtful, “You’re correct,” Newsom said when asked about going maskless at SoFi stadium, Deadline reported. “I was very judicious yesterday. Very judicious. You’ll see the photo that I did take, Magic was kind enough, generous enough, to ask me for a photograph and in my left hand’s the mask and I took the photo. The rest of the time I wore it as we all should, um — not when I had a glass of water — and I encourage everybody else to do so. And, uh, that’s it.”

Asked if he should he have reconsidered taking off his mask, given his 2020 incident at the French Laundry, the governor responded, “Yes, of course. I was trying to be gracious. I made a mis — I was trying to be gracious,” Deadline reported. “I took the mask off for a brief second but, no, I encourage people to continue to wear them.”

My BS Meter exploded. He couldn’t even choke out the word “mistake.” Does Gov. Newsom have any humility? Does he think or even care that California residents are not so stupid as to believe his schtick?

Not to be outdone by the governor, Mayor Garcetti was even more of a clown when confronted. Garcetti said he held his breath to take the photo with Magic Johnson and Mayor Breed. Apparently Garcetti believes COVID germs don’t travel when you hold your breath.

“I’ll take personal responsibility,” Garcetti said when asked about the photos, “and if it makes you and everyone else happy — or even the photographs with people where literally I’m holding my breath for two seconds — I won’t even do that.”

It’s a shame Assemblyman James Gallagher wasn’t there. He’s the only one who made sense: “Gavin was judicious, Garcetti held his breath… C’mon man. Stop. They don’t really believe masking is necessary. Nor did any one else around them or anyone in that stadium for that matter. End of story.”

Narcissists don’t feel shame or hypocrisy. While narcissists may recognize they are being hypocritical on an intellectual level when caught red-handed, they do not feel like they are being unfair or hypocritical.

This is why elections matter. These politicians are toying with the lives, livelihoods and well-being of 40 million people, and have been for the last two years.

Assemblyman Gallagher is right: They don’t really believe masking is necessary. No one at that game should have been in a mask.

Riddle me this: California is still in a State of Emergency and is hosting the Super Bowl.

Public health officials and the CDC are finally admitting that masks don’t stop the COVID virus, or any virus. Entire countries are removing mask and vaccine mandates.

Despite no masking requirements at all recent NFL football games at SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer announced that attendees at the February 13, 2022 Super Bowl LVI will be required to wear KN95 masks from China while at the game at SoFi stadium, unless they are eating or drinking.

They are doubling down on control measures while they will continue to break their own rules.

How exactly will LA County and SoFi Stadium enforce this mask mandate? Will Public Health Director Ferrer hire enforcers to mull about the crowd and issue citations to violators?

The people have an expectation that those who set these foolish rules have to follow them along with the rest of us.

The people also have an expectation that the politicians who fought so hard to get elected care about governing. But they don’t appear to, and it’s never been more evident. Politics is now a lifestyle.

Gov. Newsom extended California’s State of emergency in November. Then he went on vacation in Mexico, and on a book tour for his children’s book.

What he and other California politicians have demonstrated over and over again is there is no state of emergency. This is all political theater at this point in time, two years into this pandemic/endemic, and has been for many of the state’s politicians for the full two years.

“While 5 year olds are forced to mask all day in California, Gavin Newsom and the mayors of LA and San Francisco are enjoying packed events maskless,” a Twitter friend said.

“Masks are nonsense….Covid has now become nonsense….if not in the world of science certainly in the world of California politicians…none of this is being taken seriously at all….we are in a state of emergency and hosting the super bowl…end the mandates….knock it off with the virtue signaling and lying….we’ve moved past it…enough is enough,” said a commenter on the Deadline article.

Couldn’t have said it any better.

Perhaps the most poignant response came from another Twitter friend:

This doctor agrees.

  1. What a satisfying read. Everywhere people are finally completely INFURIATED by these buffoons. This is it, it’s OVER. The attitude all around us in response to these blundering hypocrites and their phony rules has now flipped to “go ahead, make my day.” The ugly human pyramid of puffed-up, narcissistic, sociopathic, jackass politicians finally looks like it is collapsing before our eyes.

  2. Mocking is right. These idiots really think they are superior to their slaves and they cannot wait to show off their elite status. Time will show that they are on the wrong side of history.

  3. I am happy to see the gruesome threesome clown show is on full display for all the nation to experience. I hope they are mocked wherever they go. What I really want to see in the very near future is for all who participated including these 3 clowns is to be prosecuted for:
    *nursing home deaths
    *the denial of covid early treatment drugs such as ivermectin and HCQ
    *denying children an in classroom education
    *abusing children with mandatory masking
    *robbing citizens of a right to work, etc…
    *coercion of citizenry to participate in experimental treatments (no jab, no job)
    *promoting violent crimes by inaction and early release of criminals
    *allowing open air drug dens to thrive.

    They keep lying while people needlessly keep dying!

    If the woke population can run Barnum and Bailey out of town for animal abuse then why can’t we run these clowns out of office for abusing their power? B&B clowns had moments of being funny, these 3 clowns have many moments of arrogance and abusiveness. Not funny, not one bit!????????????

    1. To paraphrase a famous quote: “The greatest argument against democracy is the California voter.”

      California voters remind me of medieval serfs who would cheer and bow when the King went by in his gilded carriage. This is the same King that was taxing them to death.

    1. Thanks for posting this; helpful for so many reasons. And the ABC10 series Fire Power Money is well worth looking at. Well worth looking at the entire series. LOVE this reporter. Clone him and we’ll get somewhere for once.

    2. Kinda funny — the first YT commenter asked, “did anyone else notice that Newsom didn’t know which felon the reporter was referring to?” Love that.
      Let’s see, Gruesome was condescending, tried to rally the crowd of reporters against the good reporter, made a face —- an amused, puzzled face at the good reporter like he was a wacko and an escaped mental patient — a fallacy that I call “the argument from incredulity,” a favorite of the lying left, he smiled inappropriately, he evaded, danced, dismissed, etc. Usually he touches his nose, a big tell that he is lying, avoids eye contact, looks up, etc. Please add to the list Fed Up!

    3. Thanks so much for posting this! I enjoyed watching newsroom smile and crap his pants at the same time he says “huh.” We need reporters like this EVERYWHERE!

  4. This is horrible. These dictators aren’t even trying to fool us. They are brazen and shameless. In some school districts, children are being forced to wear surgical masks and staff must wear the Chinese-made, chemically toxic KN 95s (which Gavin used billions of our taxpayer dollars to buy). Yet Gavin and his BFFs party in Mexico, NY, restaurants, and sports arenas. Meanwhile, most of the rest of the country moved on a year plus ago.

    And people are being terrorized and coerced to get these experimental shots! Are we citizens or are we hostages?

    “Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place. .. you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.” This song was written by the Eagles, I believe, about the Church of Satan, which had just opened in SF. in 1969. “Mirrors on the ceiling. Cool champagne on ice. We are all prisoners here of our own device.”

  5. Katy Grimes said it all with California is in a state of emergency (health emergency no doubt) and we are hosting the Super Bowl. How are those five words used in one sentence? Why do California Democrats feel that it is ok for children to be forced to wear masks, denied education, and submit to a useless vaccine while they parade around maskless in a “nonessential” gathering.” Seriously, CA legislatures are letting this State of Emergency continue while the Governor attends a large nonessential sporting event unmasked hugging people???? I want to meet one CA voter who loves Newsom, just one. Someone beside the troll tell me how this makes sense!

    1. Stacy, agree with you completely that Katy so effectively pointed out the absurdity of the State of Emergency by saying that. Someone please clone Katy Grimes too, and fast!

  6. Roberta, Schwab and the young global leaders bringing in the great reset where we own nothing and are happy. They are going to have a tough time with that in the United States. Several states have already passed laws where the Banks cannot use the ESG. They are going to do everything possible though. Blackrock is buying up who blocks of houses to rent out. In Europe however, this thing probably will happen the Central Bank and government have destroyed the economy spending all the pensions. There going to have to do something. Not sure if doing away with capitalism and making people relying on bigger government is the answer though. People need to at least be aware of it because its happening now and they target 2030 for completion. How brilliant was them using the word conspiracy theory as a tool that deflects focus, stops conversations, and discredits the people who talk about a real conspiracy. Its exactly how they use right wing and left wing . Just hearing that its a right wing whatever and a democrate will automatically think its not real. Why do these political parties get our unconditional support that we hate the other side without even thinking why? We vote in these people because they say they will do this or that like get rid of student loans and they never do anything. Instead of getting mad at them we get mad at a some person that voted differently then us..why, they have no power or promise us anything. Anyways, If you Google the Great Reset you will find its a conspiracy theory by right wing extremists that involves mark of the beast skin implants and or some crap like that, but the fact is it is a real thing that’s happening happening on so many levels including or food. As great as they make it sound, not one of us here want to live in this new world that no longer has capitolism instead collectivism and stake holder capitalism. You can read the book by klause Schwab the great reset.

    1. Yes, division is the name of the game.
      A great interview was just done on The Highwire and it is 2 hours long but do not let it dissuade you, it is well worth the time. Del Bigtree interviews Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics. He explains the WEF goals really well. The interview begins at the 1:00.00 hour mark.
