Like Stalin Mourning That the Kulaks No Longer Farm 

Just hours after Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining at L.A. County’s 31,000 restaurants over COVID-19 safety concerns, she visited a restaurant in Santa Monica, where she dined outdoors…

Yep, the outrageous double standards we expect from Our Rulers. But Kruel’s witless “excuse” exacerbated her hypocrisy:

A spokesman for Kuehl … [said], “She did dine al fresco

Cute, swapping “al fresco” for “outdoors,” as if all us dumb taxpayers are less likely to notice the in-your-face dissembling.

at Il Forno on the very last day [before her ban took effect]. She loves Il Forno, has been saddened to see it, like so many restaurants, suffer from a decline in revenue. 

Oh, indeed, just so very sad, especially because we have absolutely no idea how that decline occurred. It couldn’t possibly be due to Kruel, could it?

She ate there, taking appropriate precautions, and sadly will not dine there again until our Public Health Orders permit.”

Oh, yes, yes, so heartbreakingly sad it’s tragic. And to think those Public Health Orders had no teeth until Kruel voted them a full set of dentures…

At any rate, Kruel’s brazen irresponsibility inspired one of my favorite gadflies, David Mueller, to send her a fan letter:

Dear Comrade Kuehl,

I applaud your decision to ban outdoor dining and then go dine outdoors!  The despicable riffraff of society who beg, whine, and complain about having their businesses shutdown and needing to feed their families need to be taught a severe lesson.  

Just who do the hoi polloi think they are?

Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin, would vigorously applaud your actions.

You stand with the great tyrants of history.

Congratulations, Comrade Kuehl!
