Newsom Resorts To Threats: Recall Election Is Life Or Death For California
Newsom has been part of California's leadership for years now and it shows. They have a booming homeless population, which has led to human waste on the streets, tons of litter, and even reports of rats carrying bubonic plague. They have also mismanaged their forests with their attempts to be more green. They stopped tending to them as much which led to an increase in wildfires. But Newsom claims Californians would be in serious danger if he was recalled. In danger of what? Being properly led?
"There is no more consequential decision to the health and safety of the people of the state of California than voting no on this Republican-backed recall," Newsom said Tuesday at a vaccine event in Oakland two weeks before the recall election. He said that "the starkest contrast" exists between him and the Republican candidates who would rather go the way of Texas and Florida, states with more lax protocols and subsequently lower vaccine rates and higher virus cases.
The governor was blasted in November for attending a high-end French Laundry dinner with lobbyist friends despite discouraging residents from attending social gatherings, a cringe-worthy decision widely viewed as a catalyst for the signature drive that qualified the recall. Things only got worse in subsequent months as California suffered its highest Covid-19 death rates and hospitals were overrun."
"As Delta variant anxieties increase, and the election coincides with precarious school reopenings, the Democratic governor sees opportunity in drawing a stark and ominous line between himself and his challengers: If he is ousted, the virus will get worse, not better.
“What’s at stake in the September 14 recall? It’s a matter of life and death,” states a new ad against the recall, slamming top GOP candidate Larry Elder for having a “radically different” approach to vaccines than Newsom and for pushing “deadly conspiracy theories” about the virus. Newsom's team was quick to circulate a CNN interview this week in which Elder suggested children did not need to be vaccinated and downplayed their risk of infection."
California had some of the worst COVID infection rates. So even if he was going to make the liberal argument about vaccines and masks he still doesn't have any ground. It sounds like Californians finally got fed up with the useless governor.
