California’s Newsom Berates Beachgoers, Threatens to Shut Down Access to Sand and Surf
Article from For Liberty by Norm Leahy.
Californians appear to have had enough of the lockdowns and closures, flocking to beaches despite warnings and local bans trying to keep them away.
This pent-up demand for fresh air and sunshine has irritated Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), who is threatening to close the beaches entirely:
Newsom on Monday criticized Californians who defied the statewide stay-at-home order and flocked to beaches over the weekend, saying that ignoring restrictions could prolong the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
Newsom’s comments came after thousands of beachgoers descended on the coasts in Orange and Ventura counties despite his pleas last week to avoid doing so during the warm weekend.
“This virus doesn’t take the weekends off,” Newsom said during his daily COVID-19 briefing in Sacramento. “The only thing that will set us back is people stopping to practice physical distancing and appropriate social distancing. That’s the only thing that’s going to slow down our ability to reopen this economy.”
While berating citizens isn’t likely to gain their support. But it’s actually an improvement from the high seas pursuit and arrest of a lone paddleboarder in Malibu who decided to ignore the stay-home order to get some exercise.
That amazing display of authoritarian overreach was captured on video.

Beaches are One thing ;but, making a stupid LAW (with penalties for non compliance) of one person per pool—–IS *ING CRAZY. A hot tub is one thing but a pool can be 100’X 40 ‘—ONE person—–simply STUPID. It is 100 F in Palm Springs, California—making appointments for 20 minutes in a pool once a Week—-fine for politicos as They have private pools—-just like ELITE COMMUNISTS.
Mexifornians voted for the jerk Newslum…Now they can live with that power hungry Communist ahole.
He’s related to Piglosi, what else can you expect!!!!
He’s related to Piglosi and her Mafia family, what else can you expect!!!!
Were there any Americans left in Mexiformia, he’d be tarred and feathered.
Don’t blame me — I voted for Cox.
Newsom can’t seem to understand that he can not be a dictator no matter how much he would like to be. Remember all this in November when you vote!
As it seems likely that most of the revelers are young people perhaps they will remember the overbearing Democrat governor, administration, and legislature next election. Perhaps they will remember Pelosi encouraging citizens to flock to Chinatown while criticizing Trump’s early restricting travel from China as “racist”. Now Pelosi seems to be claiming that Trump did not prohibit all travel from China sufficiently, because he allowed American citizens to repatriate under quarantine instead of leaving them at risk in China. Just maybe all of those citizens and their friends and relatives will remember Pelosi’s remarks next November.
You recalled one governor I think it is time to do it again…
Just like Michigan, the people will destroy this jerk off, he makes threats from fantasy land
The total SOLUTION to pigosi, waters, schiff, nadler, and smellnotsowell resides at the BALLOT BOX, just THINK, ALL of these VERMIN can be REMOVED in November, let that SINK IN FOLKS!!!
