What a ridiculous excuse for a mayor.
What an embarrassment to her city and party.
What an arrogant, silly, clueless fool.
The usual Ethics Alarms tag I would consider in this kind of story, “Incompetent Elected Official of the Month,” just doesn’t do San Francisco Mayor London Breed justice. Letting her astounding explanation for why she violated her own mask mandate simply brand her as incompetent would be a cruel insult to all previous incompetent elected officials. Previously, Ethics Alarms wrote about Breed being videoed unmasked, singing, and dancing with a largely unmasked crowd inside a jazz club in the Tenderloin last week. This made her the latest Democratic mayor, governor or other official—and there have been a ridiculous number of them— to regard themselves as immune from their own pandemic restrictions on “the little people” they deign to govern. However, none of these hypocrites have come within miles of Breed’s mind-melting hauteur. Here’s what she said:
“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing. My drink was sitting at the table, I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
Oh! It’s okay then! As long as you are feeling the spirit and not thinking about a rule, regulation or law, then you can go ahead and ignore it! And as long as you are having fun, rules shouldn’t matter either…not even for the elected officials whose conduct is supposed to exemplify what ordinary citizens should aspire to. London Breed, ladies and gentlemen! She’ll be here all week…in fact, San Francisco is stuck with her.
What is she, nine?
I want to hear every Democratic Party official and elected official be asked about Breed’s statement. This is their party. This is the level of leadership their party is inflicting on cities and states. What are they going to do about it? Or is Breed’s attitude an acceptable one to progressives? I guess that’s possible, especially in a city where shop-lifting is virtually legal.
Once again, I’m sure the Democrats are counting on the news media to make sure that most Americans never read or hear what this astoundingly stupid woman said to justify her double standards. CBS’s local affiliate wrote, “Some say the mayor was flouting the same tough rules some SF business owners have been complaining about.” “Some say?” SOME say? She was flouting her government’s own rules—that’s a fact. And the local news media reports it as a rumor.
