Democrat leaders like Governors Gavin Newsom, Andrew CVuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, and J.B. Pritzker, Mayors Lauri Lightfoot and London Breed, and now Mecklenburg (Charlotte), North Carolina County Executive Dena Diorio, have all exposed themselves as outright hypocrites and elitists by telling ordinary people to obey restrictions on their personal freedoms while flaunting those same limitations themselves.
It is as if some madness has gripped Democrat elected officials, compelling them to flaunt their contempt for those they are supposed to lead and their belief that they alone are capable of making rational decisions about which risks to take, while the ignorant sheep must be told what to do and contrained.
Yesterday, in a virtual news conference, County Executive Dena Diorio made a fool of herself by telling county residents to stay home for Christmas, and then under questioning admitting that she would be traveling by car to Durham (142 miles) to spend Christmas with her family
elected Democrats tend to think of themselves as endowed with superior wisdom, and regard their constituents as children, needing a firm hand, incapable of masking key decisions for themselves.

Do as I say, Not as I Do!!!!
The point is not that they are hypocrites, though of course they are. The point is that they do not believe the things they are telling you. They don’t believe them, and we shouldn’t believe them either.
slaves are made this way.
“Flaunting” should be “flouting.”
French Laundry Democrats.
I think they reveal their own plans just to irritate the populace. They don’t have to do that - they could just shut up and if people find out they had their own plans to travel, so be it but why broadcast it? They’re not stupid - they are calculating and manipulating and they can’t help it. If it upsets the “little people”, too bad. “We have enough people hoodwinked that we can get away with anything..”
Only lead to head will take care of this.
They are the ruling elite which lives high off the hog and has nothing but scorn for the hard-working people whose money is seized to pay the salaries of the arrogant upper class.
And they’re sending private jets at our expense to bring their relatives to dinner, so not to crowd the airlines for those of us who won’t listen?
This is why the infections are out of control. Politicians telling everyone to stay home, and then they party and travel themselves. And when the population does just as they do, those same politicians blame Trump. Meanwhile Xi is so elated that the heat is off him for releasing COVID into the world.
I guess a lot of people don’t get it. This is how communism works, and always has. The two castes have two different sets of rules.
Some pigs are more equal than other pigs..
“slaves are made this way.”
They have been building the walls of the prison in our minds. I’m seeing people running and riding bikes with masks on. I think they enjoy the smugness and sense of being in a virtuous community of ‘good people’.
Rules for thee, but none for me...
The “unwashed masses” can suffer while they eat....ice cream?
We should all just self-identify as a democrat politician and domwhat we want.
When writers don’t know the difference between “flaunt” and “flout” it’s hard to take them seriously.
