After calling for no fireworks for California’s 4th of July, Gavin Newsom was in for a surprise

Amid a new outbreak of the coronavirus, California’s Gavin Newsom was adamant that no firework celebrations be done on the Fourth of July, because the public simply could not be trusted to socially distance.

Addressing the counties on California’s watchlist, he explained, “We have worked with those counties, the 19 counties that are mandatory closure lists and we have made it clear privately- now we’re making it more abundantly clear publicly- that we believe that they should consider canceling some of their fireworks shows and presentations. By the way, a number of cities have done just that, LA in San Francisco.”

There were also all those families, something Democrats have never been too fond of either, and all that demon rum they might ingest together, so:

In his address, Newsom said family gatherings have contributed to the state’s recent increase in transmission — and that it’s an understandable impulse to want to get together, especially over a long holiday weekend.

“Patriotism in a COVID-19 environment can be expressed in a little bit different way,” Newsom said, asking people to reconsider attending gatherings with those who are not in their immediate household.

Also, holidays mean celebration, and that often means alcohol. The governor said people may start off a gathering with good intentions, wearing face masks, but after a drink or two, might let their guard (as well as their masks) down — and begin to mix in ways that increase the transmission of COVID-19.

It’s likely that Newsom’s suggestion was more than a suggestion. Newsom has, after all, conditioned state aid on cities and counties following his orders, and set up ‘strike forces‘ to go after people not wearing masks as well as small businesses operating in contravention to his shutdown orders.

And much to his surprise, he got this:

  1. The second to last video on the page, cop says, “Oh you’re probably looking at 2 to 300 dollars of fireworks here,” as he’s holding 7 roman candles and 3 mortars worth about $60 total on the high-end. Moar fake news.

  2. They’re legal here in Mich. It was so bad last night my cat’s aren’t very scared of them anymore. Neighbor’s dog though was messing all over their house.

  3. My wife & I watched the 4th of July Fireworks on TV.
    I was great to see a something positive being broadcast.
    Thank You America!

    Up here on July 1st everything was cancelled except for private individuals who did their own in parks.
    Apparently, we had a Virtual celebration on line, with a light show from the CN Tower. Who Knew?
    What a Fucking Disgrace!

  4. Hay Damin, you are supposed to have the consent of the governed, dicktaters don’t have that., You use Covid to control citizens, Azzho!

  5. “…thumbing their nose at the law as they do in Mexico and beyond.”

    The left just does not realize that is what happened when you pass laws about everything. Want to tax everybody to death? You get a situation as is in Italy where tax evasion is a national pass time.

    Or you get gun laws such as in the US where you make honest citizens jump through more and more hoops while ignoring 99% of the gun law violations by criminals.

    Maybe “liberal” voters, as opposed to leftists, are realizing that.

  6. What language do they speak in California?

    Maybe there just aren’t enough people that understand English to have any effect on the displays.

  7. This sick bastard is so openly a fascist.

    And a corrupt one, not even driven by principle.

    Newsom won’t share details on $1B mask deal with China:

  8. Ha ha ha, even here in uber-liberal Marin County!

    Lo and behold, shortly after 10 pm, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Rushed outside to see a gorgeous, colorful, BIG fireworks aerial display VERY CLOSE to the house, shot off maybe only a mile away! As good as the ones at our annual—but cancelled this year—County Fair.

    The best part? Hearing NO police sirens afterwards…intentionally ignoring the illegal display?

  9. My neighborhood was like a massive fire fight in downtown Fallujah, except with parties and pretty lights after the explosions.


    We had 5 families in the track setting off fireworks. Norwalk had a big fireworks show for almost 3 hours. Knotts Berry had a giant fireworks show that started around 1900 and went to 0100 the 5th!

    Folks near me don’t look like me but they are conservative and love America – LIKE ME!

    Ronny got 80% in ’84, liberal GWB only 41% in 2000! Some were on rooftops in the Rodney Riots! We know freedom in not free! But it is worth fighting, and maybe dieing, for!

  11. So we’re all agreed, this is somewhat heartening. Americans love blowing stuff up in celebration.

    I had no fireworks this year. And I’m the king of Mesikin fireworks. Our state is highly flammable for the next 2 weeks.

    No, really.

  12. Governor Newsom:

    Please take note of the following acronym. Learn its meaning. You will be seeing a lot of it from now on.


  13. That aerial view of fireworks exploding all over was heart warming. Fuck you libtards who want to control my life in order to gratify your need for power and control. It will backfire on you big time, and I will cheerfully watch, and participate in, your downfall.
