Polarizing the shutdown
The left believes in (a) making rules is the same as convincing people to follow them (b) destroying the economy and blaming Trump for it. So naturally, they want the shutdown to go on as long as possible, and are furious when people disagree. In a diverse society, you're going to get a diversity of followers. And the collectivists want to guilt, shame, attack and henpeck those not following what they want, to get them in line. If they have to exaggerate what's happening to guilt them or feel morally superior, they will do so. (Lies of omission, commission or exaggeration all allowed). And thus you get FakeNews reports that misrepresented what happened in Newport Beach, and a leftist governor (Newsom) that used it as an opportunity to show his authority -- which caused lawsuits and protests. Good job Newsom.
|Quarantine Quitters - An article that outrages people by claiming that people aren't practicing proper social distancing while going to California beaches. The problem is the remainers pretend they know what they are talking about (the don't), and that guilting others will persuade them -- it does the opposite.
The problems are that government has done a very poor job of telling the truth and persuasion. The media has gone out of their way to distort everything and alienate the public. And some know-nothing sanctimommy's (and the governor) are making unrealistic demands for ambiguous results from untrusted sources. And the sanctimommy's and far left want to blame the people for ignoring them, after they've done everything humanly possible to be untrustworthy and obnoxious. 
|Fake News - How do you know it's FakeNews? There's a game they're doing in photography called compressed perspective. You shoot low, and you shoot from far away with a big zoom lens -- it gives the perspective of making all those people look closer together than they are.|
If you want to give true perspective, you shoot it from above, or from close with a wide angle. When you do that, you find that the vast majority are social distancing, and those that aren't are just transiting.
Real news doesn't use dirty tricks to give misperceptions -- they have data and images that show what they want without those tricks.
|Shut up you beaches - Gavin responded to the FakeNews by scolding the public for not recognizing his dictatorial powers and social distancing in a way that was approved by King Cuckolder.|
- So Gavin shut down the beaches, but only in Orange County, to show everyone that this is not voluntary -- he thinks he's the boss of all the Mayors and the Plebes. The plebes disagreed. 
- Why did he do it? Because OC has some of the fewest cases in the state, the vast majority were social distancing, and since sunlight is a COVID disinfectant, there's little reason to think that you can even catch it by just being on the beach with someone (unless you're practically making out). But it also helps to note that few in OC voted for Newsom, so it doesn't hurt Gavin politically to spit on them -- since leftist voters like unnecessary displays of authority (from their side), and the OC voters weren't going to support a douche like Gavin anyways.
- In a surprise to no one, this caused lawsuits from Huntington, Newport, Dana Point, etc... and wasted lots of our tax dollars, paying lawyers to fight from both sides. Gavin is the king of nothing else, he's gotten our state into more lawsuits than any other governor. 
- Gavin continued to show that he doesn't realize that he governs only by the consent of the governed... so 2,500 protestors showed up to voice their opinion against hit over autocratic stupidity. The results? Angry people did NOT social distance, at least partly to show their ire. Which meant that if he cared about the publics health, he did the exact wrong thing, for the wrong reasons, all to antagonize them into being willing to risk their lives to stand up to a petty tyrant. Still, Gavin didn't learn (relent), that would make him a wise statesman and lousy Democrat.
