Certified Balloonhead Gavin Newson, Governor of California (for the time being) seriously went on CNN and said that not getting vaxxed is the same thing as driving drunk.
Let's see, the CNN anchor questions Newsom on when he's going to bring back a mask mandate, and Newsom, to his credit, says that's not really on the table, but he does say that his goal is to END the virus with universal vaccinations.
And if you choose not to get the experimental shot? If you make the private health decision to wait for more information on the vaccine, or have had Covid and don't need the vaccine? Well, then you are equivalent to a felon, a drunk driver.
"It's like drunk drivers. You don't have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk including your own life."
So, how far is Newsom willing to carry this analogy? Drunk driving is a felony after all. Should we treat the unvaccinated as felons? Should we put laws in place to make not taking the vaccine illegal? Forced vaxxes?
Now, he doesn't outright say any of this, but that is clearly the line that is being drawn. Newsom is saying it is criminal to not take the brand new emergency authorized Covid vaccine.
Newsom also states in the interview that he is totally supportive of localities in California imposing mask mandates and other Coivd restrictions, but he's not looking to do much more from his office in Sacramento.
Newsom, who is currently in a recall election battle in California, will continue to push the vaccine, though it's doubtful he will place any statewide mandates on masking or shutting businesses down again because that would definitely sink his chances in the upcoming election.
