Meanwhile, in the state of California, (a state that VP Harris claims should be a model for how the Dems govern the entire country), a petition to oust Governor Gavin Newsom has hit 2.1 million signatures, surpassing the necessary two million.
According to Epoch Times:
Backers of the recall effort against California Gov. Gavin Newsom said that they submitted by Wednesday’s deadline, a number that will likely far exceed the required threshold even if a fraction prove to be invalid.
Newsom himself acknowledged Tuesday that the recall effort would likely qualify, triggering what could be a wildly expensive race later this year to protect the Democratic governor’s seat in one of the bluest states in the country. Newsom, however, has promised to fight it and has blasted the effort to oust him, blaming it on right-wing extremists.
“The chief, the top 10 proponents, the people that are behind this are members of the Three Percenters—the right wing militia group, the Proud Boys, supported the insurrection, are folks that quite literally enthusiastically support QAnon conspiracies, and so that’s the origin here,” Newsom told “The View” Tuesday.
The over 2 million signatures will be verified by 58 California county officials, who will toss any deemed invalid. But over 83 per cent of those counted so far have been validated, a rate that would lead to far more acceptable signatures than the 1.5 million required.
I find it interesting that whenever anyone on The Left comes up against opposition they blame it on conspiracy theorists. . .as if us normal conservatives wouldn’t find him offensive enough to oust.
But maybe that’s just me.
My take? I sincerely doubt there are 2.1 million militia group members and conspiracy theorists in the entire state of California. And, am I to understand that most of the people on this petition were also involved in the “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol?
Dang. There must’ve been a l-o-t more people there then I realized.
But, really. . .who were these signers?
According to a Republican strategist (Dave Gillard) those who signed the petition were “64.10 per cent GOP; 25.30 per cent NPP (No Party Preference); 9.00 per cent Dem; 1.60 per cent Other and 49.48 per cent Female.”
I find it interesting that any Democrats would be brave enough to sign that petition. 9% is a large number, to my way of thinking. But Newsom has created enemies over the past year with his over-the-top mandates, which destroyed businesses and robbed Californians of their livelihoods.
According to the Recall Gavin Newsom website, “Governor Gavin Newsom failed at his job and destroyed the lives and businesses of too many hard-working Californians.”
Obviously at least 2.1 million people believe that and want to see action taken to remove him.
Can we go back to that part about how Harris wants to use California as an example for how to govern the rest of us? Heck, they can’t even take care of themselves on the Left Coast.
