If Democrats ever run out of bizarre arbitrary decrees to impose in the name of ChiCom virus hysteria (e.g., Gretchen Whitmer banning the sale of garden seeds, J. B. Pritzker forbidding more than two people from sitting in a boat), they can turn to South Africa for ideas:
South African stores can only sell shoes if they are “closed toe,” and short-sleeved shirts if they are promoted or displayed to be worn under jackets or jerseys, according to the latest list of government rules that spell out what’s allowed during a nationwide lockdown.
This actually represents a lightening of COVID-19 tyranny in the Rainbow Utopia.
South Africa, which has diagnosed 11,350 coronavirus cases, first imposed a lockdown in late March, banning the sale of most goods besides groceries and medical supplies. The government eased the restrictions from May 1, allowing the sale of winter clothing and bedding to resume.
Those 11,350 cases are out of a population of over 58,775,000 — i.e., less than 1 in 5,000 South Africans have tested positive. According to Bing’s COVID-19 tracker, there have been 219 fatal cases. That’s 1 in 268,379 citizens. More South Africans are probably dying from drinking engine cleaning fluid than of the Wuhan coronavirus. But you never want to let a crisis go to waste.
The rules don’t have to make any sense. Not much having to do with lockdowns does, other than lifting them. Petty tyranny is its own reward, as any Democrat governor can tell you (e.g., Whitmer, Pritzker, Kate Brown, Janet Mills, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo).
Dems can turn to elsewhere in Africa for ideas regarding punishment:
Authorities in Nigeria demolished two hotels in its southern Rivers state on Sunday after they were accused of breaking lockdown rules meant to limit the spread of the coronavirus, according to a report.
State Governor Nyesom Wike said the managers of the Edemete Hotel and Prodest Home were arrested after they reportedly disregarded an order that hotels should be closed.
That tops what Whitmer’s regime did to hero barber Karl Manke, suspending the 77-year-old patriot’s license to cut hair but neglecting to arrest him and to bulldoze his building as an example to other potential rebels.
According to the owner of Prodest Home, the hotel wasn’t even open. Officials came in and demanded bribes, payment of which would have allowed the hotel to operate. But he didn’t have the money, so they reduced the place to a pile of rubble. Life inevitably gets to be like that where government is not restricted.
State officials reportedly also plan on auctioning vehicles seized from lockdown violators, according to the BBC.
Why didn’t Whitmer think of that?
