Fascism, California Style: Leaders Using Lockdown Rules to Thwart Any Political Challenge

In a rambling interview this week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (above, wearing a mask) informed America’s largest city that stay-at-home ‘lockdown’ orders will continue ‘with all certainty’ for another three months, bringing his house arrest sentence for upwards of 13 million residents up to the month of August. All this, despite the fact that LA only has recorded some 1,613 deaths from Coronavirus – a mere fraction of casualties suffered by New York City which is set to lift its lockdown in a few weeks time.

A crazed Garcetti also made a bizarre statement where he claimed that “LA will never be completely open until we have a cure” (presumably he means a vaccine). However, the Mayor was forced to backpedal on comments made the previous day by LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on who said that stay-at-home orders in LA will ‘with all certainty’ be for the next three months  as he attempted to revise her previous statement by claiming that she really only meant that they wanted people to just ‘cover our faces, physically distance and that you’re safest working from and staying at home’.

It’s now become apparent that both the Mayor and the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, are using their own draconian lockdown rules to keep residents from gathering enough signatures for a state recall challenge against them. As a result of these authoritarian trends, angry state residents have taken to social media to voice their opposition and anger as the state politicians’ power grab.

Have American political leaders become too intoxicated with their newfound dictatorial powers, and are now unwilling to let go?
