Mayor Garcetti shut off the electricity at an (apparent) tiktok star’s Hollywood home. Baby steps towards shutting down a family’s utilities for having a birthday party. Just because it was at a mansion and the guy can afford to go to one of his other homes does not make it okay! ESPECIALLY during a time when they’re not to shut off people’s utilities who cant pay..
Start with a millionaire, no one cries out against it, they’re just rich people, it doesnt affect ME. Then other celebrities, they can afford it, who cares, it doesnt affect ME. Then wealthy people, they can afford it and shouldnt complain, it doesnt affect ME. Then the everyday working people have no leg to stand on when it happens to them because they kept their mouth shut when it happened all that time to all those other people.
If it’s acceptable to do this anyone, it is an argument for it to be acceptable to do this to everyone.
This is so close to being a human rights violation. Shutting off power for having people in your private residence is unlawful. Garcetti is behaving like a little dictator. Next it will be other utilities. The United Nations has stated that it is a human rights violation to shut off water of someone who cannot afford to pay. What is the difference between that and shutting off water on those who have paid?
I honestly dont care about this guy. I don’t know who he is. I dont really think it is relevant because this shouldnt happen to ANYONE. ANYONE. Mayor Garcetti authorized this and was quite proud of doing so, posting it on his Twitter as a threat to anyone else who dares defy him.
THIS IS NOT OKAY.
There were 2,400 COVID-19 related deaths in Los Angeles, according to the county’s website, when announcing his act of tyranny. The population of Los Angeles is approximately 4 MILLION people, NOT COUNTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. This means 0.04% of the legal population has died WITH suspected or confirmed COVID-19. There have been 91,500 suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in LA, this doesnt tell you how many are symptomatic. Let’s (wrongly) assume that every case is symptomatic, only 2% of the legal, census counted population of LA has been physically effected by the coronavirus.
11,500 people have died WITH suspected or confirmed COVID-19 (not FROM) in the state, and the California population is approximately 40 MILLION. So… 0.03% of the California population has fallen victim to the oh-so-deadly coronavirus. 638,800 cases in the state. Again, assuming every case is symptomatic, only 1.6% of the legally censused population would have been ill.
If you look at the information provided by the State of California’s Health Department, even with all of the overinflated numbers we’ve seen throughout the pandemic, we have actually been BELOW THE EPIDEMIC THRESHOLD SINCE THE LAST WEEK OF APRIL (link AND graph from the state’s website).
Let’s put this into some perspective. 11,600 people have died WITH suspected or confirmed COVID-19 (not FROM) which is around the same percentage of people who died from lung cancer this year (0.02%). Why are cigarettes not illegal??
Approximately 0.09% of the legally counted California population died from coronary artery disease this year; that seems like the real epidemic… what do we do? Close the healthy restaurants, boost fast food sales, and force shut downs of gyms while encouraging people to not leave their homes.
Why is California accepting unconstitutional orders from Governor Newsom and the corrupt local governments for a disease that has only physically affected less than 2% of the legally counted population? Why have people lost businesses and jobs for a disease that has killed 0.03% of the ENTIRE STATE’S population?
Lastly, there are approximately 10.7 MILLION illegal immigrants in the state of California. So those percentages adjusted for proper population are different. That brings the died WITH (not FROM COVID-19) death count percentage down to 0.02% and the confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases to 1.1% of the California population.
The way I see it, this virus has been politically hijacked by the radical Left in order to ease the transition into the communist country they are attempting to turn our Republic into.
