Benevolent Dictator Bans Walking

Los Angeles dictator Eric Garcetti has banned “unnecessary walking” within the Los Angeles city limits.

This is what you voted for, Los Angeles.

Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued a new emergency order Wednesday that bans unnecessary “travel on foot” as he warns the city is nearing a “devastating tipping point” in their fight against COVID-19.

“Our city is now close to a devastating tipping point, beyond which the number of hospitalized patients would start to overwhelm our hospital system, in turn risking needless suffering and death,” Garcetti wrote in the order. “These unfortunate facts about the spread of COVID-19 in our City mean that we must resume some of the more restrictive measures we instituted in the Spring.”

The order prohibits “all travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit,” with limited exceptions.

Strangely enough, my biggest problem is not with this ridiculously unconstitutional order. My problem is this fascist mayor has prevented people from exercising… which keeps them healthy… which makes them better equipped to beat the Chinese Wuhan Virus.

It’s similar to shutting down the gyms in my city. The mayor is purposefully making citizens less healthy, and thus, more susceptible to the virus. How does any of this make sense?

The obligatory video is posted below…

  1. 655,000 people die from heart disease each year. We should mandate gym membership. It would save way more lives than these stupid rules.

  2. Ingineer – I’d be there every other day if our fascist mayor didn’t shut them down. It’s difficult to go cycling when it’s 30 degrees outside with 20mph winds. This entire shutdown is a sham.

  3. At some point the “do as I say not as I do” crap from our elected officials needs to cease. Ruling from fear has always been used as a way to subjugate the people. Enough already!!
