The Democrat mayor of Beverly Hills is staging her own protest against the return of the democrat-supported mask mandate to LA County.
Three-term mayor Lili Bosse went on FOX News to blast her fellow liberals, insisting that her county will refuse to enforce the mandate when it is put back into place.
Mayor Bosse was clearly discontent with the new posed mandate, telling FOX, “We have more important issues to enforce, in my opinion and in the council’s opinion, regarding mental wellness checks for the unhoused, keeping the streets in the parks safe.”
“Basically there’s no judgment. If somebody wants to wear a mask, wear a mask. If you feel vulnerable wear a mask and if you don’t want to wear a mask, don’t wear a mask,” she continued.
Bosse added that while they may be part of LA county, they don’t have to use city resources to enforce something they disagree with, “Beverly Hills is under LA county public health rules, but we in Beverly Hills don’t have to use our enforcement to enforce it. So if LA County puts downs this mandate, we felt they can go out and enforce it.”
Los Angeles announced earlier this month that they were preparing to reinstate the unpopular mandate if they continued to record a rise in new Coronavirus cases. According to LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, if the county sees “a high level” of cases continue for 2 straight weeks, the mask mandate will automatically be put back in place.
A ‘high’ level is defined as at least 10 new weekly coronavirus-positive hospitalizations for every 100,000 residents.
Ferrer defended the decision, saying, “It is my fervent hope that this current surge will abate soon, but, in the meantime, I ask everyone to be cautious and take care of each other, and I thank the many who are doing all they can do to slow the spread.”
The fact that a major Democrat mayor is rebelling against her own party and their obsession over masks could spell bad news for the party. Do you think that more mayors will follow suit if they try to push masks nationwide again?
