It’s a tough five-way race for Worst Governor of the Pandemic between Cuomo, Newsom, Whitmer, Murphy, and Pritzker.
Cuomo and Murphy have killed the most people so far, but Pritzker and Whitmer are staying in the race on sheer obnoxiousness and dumb publicity stunts.
Calling the act of wearing a facial covering in public a “collective act of patriotism,” Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker called on state residents to not only wear masks while shopping, but also to report mask-related discrimination against minority residents.
He said, while not wearing a mask.
But if a mask is indeed a collective act of patriotism, why isn’t the adipose rich kid wearing one? Also why is his wife in Florida?
A “collective act of patriotism” means the same thing in Illinois that it did in the good old USSR. “You do it, because we told you too, while we have some caviar and snicker at the proles.”
During his Wednesday coronavirus press briefing, Pritzker said that a recent rise in racial profiling incidents related to wearing masks has to be stopped, and that store workers, police officers, and Illinois residents must guard against making dangerous assumptions about fellow community members.
Has there been a recent rise in robberies?
Is mandating that stores let in masked people going to encourage robberies?
Not a problem for Pritzker. But if you don’t want to let a robber in your store, you’re going to be hailed in front of the Human Rights Tribunal.
“I want to call on the public to help us stop these hateful incidents by speaking out and standing up for others in your community,” Pritzker said. “If you witness or experience mask-related discrimination, or discrimination of any kind, please report the incident to the Illinois Department of Human Rights.”
Because there aren’t enough informers calling 1-800-INFORM just yet. But maybe one of them can track down the whereabouts of Mrs. Pritzker.
