Democrat leadership in states where massive protests have taken place announced new coronavirus restrictions due to a surge in cases, but if you watched CNN or MSNBC you would be under the impression that it is only Texas and Florida in trouble.
Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” said Tuesday that despite the surge in cases in California, the liberal media has been focused mainly on cases in Texas and Florida because they have Republican leadership.
Democrats and their media allies have done their best to make Republicans seem reckless during the outbreak. Even Joe Biden, during a rare speech on Tuesday, took a cheap shot at President Trump for wearing a mask in public. He said the outbreak has gotten “bad enough that even Donald Trump finally decided to wear a mask in public.”
Sexton said the focus is on Texas and Florida because Democrats believe that those states might be in play for 2020.
“Remember, if the Democrats win Texas, it’s all over,” Sexton said. “Keep that in mind.”
California Gov. Gavin Newsom initially took a stern approach to the virus. Newsom famously clashed with religious leaders in the state who wanted to hold church services and took aim at Orange County after thousands went to the beach. He also clashed with protesters who called on the state to reopen due to economy-killing guidelines. There was even the case in Malibu where a paddleboarder who was alone in the water was chased out by authorities.
But when it came to weeks of civil unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody, Sacramento appeared a lot more conciliatory.
“You have lost patience, so have I,” Newsom told protesters in June. “You are right to feel wronged. You are right to feel the way you’re feeling.”
Sexton said California announced these new restrictions after its governor not only allowed but encouraged these protests.
Newsom announced that all counties in the state must close their “indoor activities,” which affects restaurants, bars and other venues. Sexton pointed out that the state still allows outdoor service.
California reported 8,358 new coronavirus cases on Monday, according to the state's health department. The state has 329,162 cases and 1,833 in intensive care. A total of 7,040 individuals died in the state.
“They want to lecture us all on public health; they want to allow the Democrat base of lunatics to mobilize in the streets,” he said. He continued, “And now, after the virus has reached high levels of cases in these states, they’re telling us that they want to bring back” the shutdown.
