Profiles in COVID-19 Tyranny: Sheila Kuehl

Although she is not a major figure in the Democratic Party, the COVID-19 hypocrisy of Sheila Kuehl is so flagrant that it would be remiss not to note it.

Just hours after Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining at L.A. County’s 31,000 restaurants over COVID-19 safety concerns, she visited a restaurant in Santa Monica, where she dined outdoors, FOX 11 learned on Monday.

The senseless ban on outdoor dining is an inconvenience to customers. To those who work at them, it is a major problem, because they will likely become unemployed, and if Democrats take over in Washington, unemployment will remain high for years (due to hyper-regulation, higher minimum wage, excessive immigration, and overtaxation). To the owners of the thousands of establishments effected, it is not merely an inconvenience or a problem, but a catastrophe.

Lately Democrats brandish the word “science” almost as aggressively as they exploit the increasingly meaningless word “racism.” But as Liz Wheeler observes, the COVID-19 tyranny inflicted by bureaucrats like Kuehl has nothing to do with science:

Do As I Say, Not As I Do COVID-19 Update

“Do as I say, not as I do” could be the official motto of the liberal elite. It is implemented on a constant basis.

Today’s DAISNAID report features a big city mayor. No, it isn’t Denver’s Michael Hancock. From the Austin American-Statesman:

In early November, as health officials warned of [an] impending COVID-19 spike, Austin Mayor Steve Adler hosted an outdoor wedding and reception with 20 guests for his daughter at a trendy hotel near downtown.

The next morning, Adler and seven other wedding attendees boarded a private jet bound for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they vacationed for a week at a family timeshare.

At the time, the city officially recommended that gatherings be limited to 10 or fewer.

One night into the trip, Adler addressed Austin residents in a Facebook video: “We need to stay home if you can. This is not the time to relax. We are going to be looking really closely. … We may have to close things down if we are not careful.”

The wedding was okay though, because Adler says people practiced social distancing.

Adler added that masks were distributed, although he acknowledged that guests were “probably not” wearing them all the time.

Just so long as you have the mask in your pocket, you can always whip it out if someone starts sneezing in your face.

It might not be a big deal that Adler blows off his own government’s recommendations — except that as always with Democrats, there is coercion involved.

Adler has been involved heavily in the city’s COVID-19 response, taking what many considered a bold and politically risky step in March of canceling the South by Southwest Festival, a premier event and economic boon for the city, days before the first local cases were confirmed.

Every time bureaucrats cancel an event, people who would have earned money from it get hurt. Most of these people probably have less excess wealth than Adler.

Even CNN propagandists are choking on the COVID hypocrisy. Daily Caller reports:

CNN anchor Brianna Keilar blasted several Democratic leaders who have been caught breaking or skirting their own COVID-19 safety recommendations during a Wednesday afternoon segment of “CNN Newsroom.”

Keilar took aim at California Gov. Gavin Newsom, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, all of whom were publicly exposed for breaking COVID-19 regulations in various ways.

Let them have it, Brianna:

Nice scolding, but no one takes the hide off Democrats like Kayleigh McEnany. Via Not the Bee:

We will have to become accustomed to hypocrisy if the Party of Government isn’t turned back. Once limited government slips away, rules are for the ruled, not the rulers.
