After California’s Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom initiated a new round of draconian lockdown rules, that includes a 10 pm curfew, thousands of people took to the streets (after 10 pm) protesting the COVID-1984 restrictions and calling for freedom.
Thousands of people in 16 California cities took to the streets on Saturday to protest Gov. Gavin Newsom’s curfew order requiring people to stay at home after 10 p.m. Carrying Trump/Pence flags and “Open up California” banners, the crowds began to gather at 10:01 p.m., including in Huntington Beach and San Clemente.
“Governor Newsom’s sweeping edicts by moving 95 percent of California to purple tier and a curfew is an abuse of power,” Syndie Ly, who helped organize the protest and was on the ground in San Clemente, told Breitbart News. “We are all responsible adults so we can make our individual choices.”
“This movement is about us rising up for our freedom and against Governor Newsom’s overreaching edicts,” Ly said.
In similar defiance, several California sheriffs have just announced that they will not be enforcing Gov. Newsom’s lockdown. READ: California Sheriffs Buck Gov. Newsom’s Latest Lockdown: ‘We Will Not’ Actively Enforce It
Meanwhile, others have decided there is really no hope and have chosen to just flee the state. Tech icon, Keith Rabois, just announced he is leaving San Francisco immediately and will be moving to Florida.
Rabois, an early executive at PayPal, Square, LinkedIn and more, told Fortune he is “moving imminently” because he’s finding it “impossible to stay” in San Francisco. After living in the Bay Area for 20 years, he said he plans on moving to Florida.
“I think San Francisco is just so massively improperly run and managed that it’s impossible to stay here,” Rabois told Fortune. He told the publication other friends in his peer group have done the same, and a look at his Twitter account shows multiple tweets about the so-called San Francisco exodus.
This is not the first time that the media has reported on the mass exodus from the state because of its extreme progressive policies. READ: Why is Everyone Leaving CALIFORNIA, and Where Are They Leaving To?
