Foul-mouthed California lawmaker Lorena Gonzalez had a first-class inspiring message for business owners and job creators in the most financially-mismanaged state in the entire Union: Go F*** yourselves!
Gonzalez gleefully sealed the fate of over 1,000 Tesla employees at the company’s headquarters in California Saturday as the arrogant Latino Caucus Chair attacked the carmaker’s CEO for his criticism of the state’s extended shelter-in-place orders.
Tesla filed suit Saturday night against Alameda County, California, after local officials there refused to let his company reopen its Fremont factory.
“Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately,” Musk tweeted.
Assemblywoman and highly-intellectual wordsmith Gonzalez offered the followed reply in response to Musk’s frustrations: “F*ck Elon Musk.”
The Assemblywoman justified her offensive remark to Musk by noting that Tesla has benefited from generous government subsidies – an indirect warning to the CEO that he is obligated to lick Sacramento’s boots.
Musk, who is directly responsible for the creation of millions of jobs and billions in tax revenue to Gonzalez’s ZERO, offered the following reply: “Message Received.”
CNN quickly joined Gonzalez-led “F*ck Elon Musk” pile-on, noting that Tesla’s lawsuit against Alameda County, California, followed months of Musk tweeting “debunked and controversial coronavirus claims — and railing against stay-at-home orders — often contrary to health officials’ guidance.”
Liberals in the mainstream media and ignorant, unqualified, embarrassment politicians like Lorena Gonzalez can afford to wait this pandemic out until every last case of COVID-19 has been detected and dealt with appropriately. The economic reality for millions of U.S. workers, however, is that a measly $1,200 check from the Fed – a check that many taxpayers have yet to receive – doesn’t come close to covering the mortgage or rent, food, car payments, utilities, medicine, and other necessities required to sustain life for months on end.
Rather than argue this issue out in a California vacuum, why not look to states who have already lifted lockdown measures and use their data as a guide for how to proceed?
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp lifted his state’s lockdown orders in the face of political doomsayers, media-shaming, and a very public disapproval from no less than President Donald Trump. 15 days later, the state celebrated their lowest number of hospitalized coronavirus patients and the fewest number of COVID-19 patients on ventilators.
“Today marks the lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized statewide (1,203) since hospitals began reporting this data on April 8th,” Gov. Kemp posted to Twitter Saturday. “Today also marks the lowest total of ventilators in use (897 with 1,945 available). We will win this fight together!”
It appears, however, Musk is already fed up with the debate. The tone of his recent tweets seems to indicate that he plans to have workers start listing their homes and preparing for a move to Texas or Nevada regardless of how the lawsuit with Alameda County turns out.
As a former California resident myself, what took you so long to wake up, Mr. Musk? The weather on the West coast isn’t THAT good.
I only wish I could recommend a move to the state of Indiana. Unfortunately, we’re dealing with our own draconian lockdown measures at present thanks to the “leadership” (cough) of Governor Eric Holcomb.
