A Los Angeles restaurant owner has spoken out and her sentiment is going viral after she exposed the draconian hypocrisy of coronavirus-related restrictions forced on them by Democratic leaders. We all know it’s been happening, and the media has gone right along with the tyrants’ dictates as if we don’t even have Constitutional rights. This is the first time we have forced healthy people to lockdown and wear masks over a pandemic, close our businesses and schools. Democrat leaders are completely out of control.
Last month, Los Angeles County banned outdoor dining, one of the few ways to earn a living that was left for restaurants, after their businesses were been hit extra hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pineapple Hill Saloon & Grill owner, Angela Marsden, in Sherman Oaks pointed out that local officials allowed a TV production to scratch the rules that everyone else has to abide. The Hollywood crew actually set up outdoor eating areas only feet from her restaurant. That is maddening!
In her scorching rant, Marsden burned Newsom and Garcetti for giving priority to Hollywood workers over small businesses like her restaurant.
“So this is my place, the Pineapple Hill Grill & Saloon. If you go to my page you can see all the work I did for outdoor dining, for tables being seven feet apart,” Marsden said. “And I come in today because I’m organizing a protest and I came in to get stuff for that.”
“And I walk into my parking lot, and obviously Mayor Garcetti has approved … this,” she added, pointing at the production setup, including tables for outdoor dining to be used by the production crew, “has approved this being set up for…this being set up for…for a movie company.”
Marsden added, “I’m losing everything. Everything I own is being taken away from me and they set up a movie company right next to my outdoor patio, which is right over here. And people wonder why I’m protesting and why I have had enough.
They have not given us money and they have shut us down. We cannot survive, my staff cannot survive. Look at this. Tell me that this is dangerous, but right next to me, as a slap in my face, that’s safe. This is safe? Fifteen feet away?
This is dangerous. Mayor Garcetti and Gavin Newsom is [sic] responsible for every single person that doesn’t have unemployment, that does not have a job, and all the businesses that are going under.
We need your help. We need somebody to do something about this.”
Marsden spent around $80,000 to make her restaurant compliant with the new COVID-related regulations, and even after all of that, she is still shut down, according to KCAL-TV.
The owner of the restaurant that has been running there for over 40 years, will be closed down permanently if the officials don’t get their act together and allow her to reopen by February, according to what she told KCAL.
“If I’m not open by February, I will no longer be here,” Marsden said. “My restaurant can’t open for to-go, what little money we have I have to try to hold on to for the hopes that we’ll get to go to outdoor dining again, which is why I’m fighting so hard to get it open again.”
The lockdowns have now morphed into the new global reset that progressive leaders are all talking about where leftist politicians are trying to take oppressive measures to get people used to the fact that the government can control every aspect of your life . They have been using coronavirus throughout 2020 as an excuse to make your life as miserable as possible. At first, it was to harm Trump’s reelection efforts by blaming everything you were going through on him, and now it’s to do this global reset. Americans are only going to take it for so long before they begin the rebel in large numbers. We are a free people. It’s in our DNA. We have been patient for a very long time, and I think we’re starting to see the limits of that patience withering.
