Hey, Marie-Antoinette would’ve loved This French Laundry place. – Truly, if Marie-Antoinette were alive today she would be a Democrat politician. The hypocrisy of Democrat office holders in California is getting to be so rank and smelly now that even the state’s major newspapers are holding their collective noses and reporting on it.
The San Fran Chronicle reported on Wednesday that Governor Gavin Newsom and the state’s Democrat health officials aren’t the only ones who love to dine at the fancy French Laundry restaurant on the expense accounts of powerful lobbyists while admonishing the little people to stay home and deprive themselves: It turns out that the city’s worthless communist mayor, London Breed, likes to get her own thousand dollar meals as well:
SCOOP! My latest: Gavin Newsom wasn't the only one to attend a fancy birthday dinner at the French Laundry last month. San Francisco Mayor London Breed joined a socialite's dinner there the next night — and banned indoor dining in SF three days later.https://t.co/i2IrITKRc2

Gov. Gavin Newsom is in good company when it comes to politicians attending fancy birthday parties while encouraging others to avoid gathering.
It turns out San Francisco Mayor London Breed dined at the French Laundry the night after Newsom’s infamous, ill-advised, mid-pandemic soiree at the three-star Michelin restaurant in Yountville.
Breed took a few days off after election day and joined seven others the night of Nov. 7 to celebrate socialite Gorretti Lo Lui’s 60th birthday, Breed’s spokesman Jeff Cretan confirmed. The party of eight dined in the same kind of partially enclosed room with a ceiling and chandelier as Newsom did — making it more of an indoor dining experience than an outdoor one.
While indoor dining was allowed in Napa County at the time with no specified limit on the number of households, the state’s guidelines “strongly discouraged” social gatherings and capped them at three households. Breed’s dinner at an opulent restaurant — amid an economic catastrophe that’s shuttered countless small businesses and stretched the lines at local food banks to new lengths — might not have technically violated the rules, but it isn’t a great look.
The dinner would have certainly violated San Francisco’s health guidelines if it took place in Breed’s own city. San Francisco has issued stricter guidance than the state for several types of businesses, including restaurants, which were not supposed to seat groups larger than six indoors or outdoors unless everyone lived together. Three days after dining at the French Laundry, Breed banned indoor dining in San Francisco altogether.
If any of that surprises you, you really have not been paying attention.
Democrat hypocrites are not limited to Blue states. – Trust me, we have them in droves in Texas, too. This week’s prime example of rank Democrat hypocrisy comes to us in the form of Austin mayor Steve Adler, the guy who has turned downtown Austin into a San Francisco-style homeless encampment.
On November 9, Adler live-streamed a speech in which he lectured his city’s residents on the vital importance of staying at home and foregoing large gatherings for Thanksgiving. What he did not do during that speech is inform his voters that he was delivering it from his fancy time share condo in … wait for it … Cabo San Lucas!
I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Mayor Adler also did not inform his city’s voters that his family trip to Cabo came right after he had paid for a fancy, 20-person wedding for his daughter. When questioned by the local media about the wisdom of holding such an affair when he is lecturing the little people to avoid having dinner with their parents, Adler bragged that the whole thing was properly socially distanced and that everyone wore masks.
He didn’t provide photos or anything else as proof of that claim, because of course he didn’t.
How do you spell “hypocrite” in America today? The same way you’ve always spelled it: D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T.
Dear Democrats: When you’ve lost CNN, you’ve got a real problem. – The hacks at USAToday did their best to rationalize all this Democrat hyper-hypocrisy away on the claim that it’s all somehow been “taken out of context,” but even the reprobates at CNN weren’t having any of that. Watch below as one CNN host actually speaks truthful words about Democrats live on air, which will probably get her fired:

Meanwhile, the natives are growing increasingly restless. – A huge crowd of angry citizens in Staten Island, New York gathered outside a bar called Mac’s Public House after police had forcibly shut it down and arrested the owners:

From the story at ABC7NY:
Sheriff’s deputies are taking extraordinary measures in an ongoing battle with the owners of a Staten Island bar, moving in Tuesday night to shut down the establishment and arresting the general manager.
Mac’s Public House on Lincoln Avenue still has its windows plastered with signs calling it an “autonomous zone,” but now, the sheriff’s office is in control.
Crowds shouted at deputies as they led the restaurant’s general manager, Danny Presti, out in handcuffs after repeated warnings to stop serving customers indoors.
Owner Keith McAlarney said he took the actions he did because his business would not survive another shutdown. Mac’s Public House is located in Grant City, a coronavirus hot spot, and with hospitalizations surging, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered indoor dining suspended there.
See, you can only declare yourself to be an “autonomous zone” in today’s America if you are leading a gang of leftist rioters who loot stores and burn buildings and have the endorsement of the local communist Democrat mayor. If you’re a business owner who is just trying to survive, you are fresh out of luck.
This brutish, pervasive and frankly evil level of hypocrisy simply cannot long prevail in a free republic: It can only continue if the republic no longer remains free, and the Democrat Party is well on the way to taking America down that sorry road, using a Covid virus – the common cold is also a Covid virus, by the way – that has a 99.98% recovery rate as justification for their draconian measures.
With despotic Democrats now poised to assume control of the federal executive branch – and potentially both houses of congress as well – America stands poised atop a very slippery slope that could slide rapidly into outright revolution should Biden/Harris and their evil handlers follow through on their promises of national lockdowns and other patently unconstitutional measures despite the rapid development and distribution of an array of vaccines.
The scene outside Mac’s Public House was an actual peaceful protest. No one was hurt, no buildings were burned, no nearby Best Buy’s or Dick’s Sporting Goods were looted. But if this reprehensible level of Democrat hypocrisy continues to prevail in the blue states and escalates to the national level, such scenes will not remain peaceful for much longer.
No nation that is home to an abusive ruling class is truly a free nation. In such nations, freedoms for the common people rapidly disappear, as we have seen happen in America in 2020. As we move into the future, Americans must either resolve to rid themselves of their own abusive ruling class, or we will lose our status as a free nation.
In the course of all human history, there has never been another way.
That is all.
