Democrat governors are waging a war on freedom under the guise of protecting citizens from the coronavirus but they refuse to follow their own rules.
Take Virginia Governor Ralph Northam who has joined his fellow blue state dictators in imposing crushing lockdowns that have wrecked lives and destroyed businesses.
On Sunday, Northam came under criticism after he was caught violating his own social distancing requirements and not wearing a mask as he has demanded others to do.
After being forced to cave in and partially reopen state beaches after pictures and videos appeared on social media last week showing that Virginians were flocking to the shores despite Northam’s decrees, the governor paid a visit to Virginia Beach.
It was a classic example of “do as I say, not as I do” which has been embraced by the blue state tyrants who are holding their populations hostage.
Via The Richmond Times-Dispatch, “Northam faces criticism for Virginia Beach visit without a mask”:
After urging Virginians to wear masks when in public, Gov. Ralph Northam acknowledged he should have worn one himself while visiting Virginia Beach on Saturday.
Photos circulating on social media showed Northam, a Democrat, without a face covering on while visiting the oceanfront over the Memorial Day weekend. He stood in close proximity to several beachgoers for photos, breaking social distancing. Republicans criticized Northam, a physician, for not practicing the public health precautions he has asked residents to follow.
Alena Yarmosky, a Northam spokeswoman, said in a statement Sunday that the governor should have had a mask with him in case he came into close proximity with people.
“The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside yesterday and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone,” said the statement. “This is an important reminder to always have face coverings in case situations change — we are all learning how to operate in this new normal, and it’s important to be prepared.”
As George Orwell wrote in his classic allegory on communism Animal Farm – “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
That Governor Northam is a flaming hypocrite has already been established.
As a medical doctor he has flouted the Hippocratic oath with laws that have put abortion on steroids and like so many other Democrats, he is a stone cold racist.
The dishonest and corrupt media may have disappeared this story down the memory hole but who can possibly forget the firestrom when pictures of Northam and a college friend in blackface and wearing KKK garb surfaced last year.
