Looks like Governor Gavin Newsom is quite incensed by President Biden, especially in terms of Biden’s support of a California bill that would permit farmers to unionize and vote via mail-in ballots.
Biden’s support regarding California Assembly Bill 2183 is especially clear when reviewing an official White House statement regarding the act.
“I strongly support California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Voting Choice Act (AB 2183), which will give California’s agricultural workers greater opportunity to organize and collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions,” Biden proclaimed.
Well, how about that. For once, Biden turns his attention to people who actually work.
Including the value of what their work entails for the rest of the nation.
“Farmworkers worked tirelessly and at great personal risk to keep food on America’s tables during the pandemic,” Biden continued.
Which is why it would be great if Bill Gates and his Chinese colleagues could be prevented from buying up quite a bit of American farmland for likely nefarious purposes.
“In the state with the largest population of farmworkers, the least we owe them is an easier path to make a free and fair choice to organize a union,” Biden boomed.
Hopefully, the White House may extend that thinking to other hardworking Americans as well, rather than the woke university students and jobless thugs that that have received an outsized amount of attention.
“It is long past time that we ensure America’s farmworkers and other essential workers have the same right to join a union as other Americans,” Biden concluded.
It’s also “long past time” for a number of other developments across the country, though that one may well be a start.
Not if Newsom has anything to do with it, however.
As noted by Alexander Nieves of Politico, “The governor is privately seething over the Biden endorsement, said five people with knowledge of the governor’s thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose internal discussions. Newsom’s office declined to comment for this story.”
Of course they declined to comment, especially since Newsom’s real views conflict with the national Democrat dialogue regarding mail-in elections.
Apparently, mail-in elections are just fine for a major presidential election in 2020, but they are apparently not ok for Emperor Newsom, as evidenced by a statement from his own office.
“[Newsom] cannot support an untested mail-in election process that lacks critical provisions to protect the integrity of the election, and [it] is predicated on an assumption that government cannot effectively enforce laws,” the California governor’s office sneered.
Well now. Isn’t that something? Suddenly a mail-in election “lacks critical provisions to protect the integrity of the election?”
You don’t say.
Last year, Newsom also ranted about the prospect of mail-ins, claiming that there were “various inconsistencies and procedural issues” present.
Well, now, Mr. Governor, what a remarkable observation.
Kind of like the exact same observations and concerns that the Trump team has been raising for many years now, but Newsom didn’t seem so concerned then.
Why is he so concerned about farmers unionizing and voting via mail-in ballots anyway? After all, since California had (by far) one of the strictest lockdowns in the nation, it should be pretty clear that Democrats should be chomping at the bit for mail-in elections so that people feel “safe.”
Now all of the sudden such elections lack “critical provisions” regarding integrity when it is the most necessary?
Humorous, to put it mildly … and it will be interesting to see if Newsom’s seething in private will bubble to the surface in public.
