More COVID-19 Hypocrisy: San Francisco Mayor London Breed Partied Maskless at a Jazz Club

Rules are for the little people.

|

Yet another politician was caught violating her own mask mandate. This time it's San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who partied maskless at a jazz club on Wednesday despite the city's requirements.

Breed was spotted at the Black Cat nightclub by Mariecar Mendoza, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle. It was an exciting evening: According to Mendoza, "Oakland's Raphael Saadiq and D'Wayne Wiggins—two of the three original members of the chart-topping group Tony! Toni! Toné!—did an impromptu late-night performance of 'Let's Get Down,' the hit single from the East Bay trio's platinum-selling fourth studio album, 1996's 'House of Music.'" Alicia Garza, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, was also in attendance.

The video makes it look like a really hopping time. But notice that there isn't a mask in sight, even though Breed's own COVID-19 orders require bar, restaurant, and club customers to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking. A local news channel asked Breed about this, and here's what she said:

No, I'm not going to sip and put my mask on, sip and put my mask on, sip and put my mask on, eat and put my mask on. While I'm eating, and I'm drinking, I'm going to keep my mask off," Breed said.

In response to getting up and dancing without the mask on while at the Black Cat, she said she was sitting at her table with her drink but got up to dance because she was "feeling the spirit" and she "wasn't thinking about a mask, I was thinking about having a good time, and in the process, I was following the health order."

Breed is right: It is ridiculous to require vaccinated people to mask up under such circumstances. But the obvious solution here would be to rescind the mandate. Breed shouldn't have to follow it, because no one should have to follow it.

Breed is in good company of course: Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser has repeatedly attended events while unmasked—including a birthday party and a wedding—despite her own orders forcing masks on citizens in a variety of unnecessary circumstances. When D.C. gyms asked if they could require vaccination instead of masks, the city said no.

As Monday's Met Gala made abundantly clear, mask mandates are for the commoners. The ruling class is doing whatever they want.

    3. “Some jazz fans riffuse to mask.

      But you must admit, her TIMING is perfect (at least for showing off her “privilege”).

    4. [b]Mr. B. Natural[/b] approves.

      1. Oops. Wrong tag delimiters.

        1. <insert then close with greater than sign

    5. You are a clever bastard!
      ++

    6. Democrats LOVE elitism. This is what they want.

  2. I’m guessing she also has a counterfeit vaccine passport.

    1. I wonder if she’s getting any kickbacks from the mob for letting their smurfs loot drugstores.

      -jcr

  3. Rules for thee, but not for me. – Pretty much every Democrat “leader” in our country.

    Our Libtard trolls – COVID will kill us all!!!

    1. I do not get why their behavior is not being mentioned in lawsuits.

      “Your honor, the person demanding the mandate DOES NOT MASK HERSELF when she thinks nobody is looking. Seems hard to argue that this is scientifically or medically necessary”

  4. COVID hypocrisy among the political elite seems to be endemic. How many more of these stories before we can start using the “P” word?

    1. pathetic?

  5. When will the shootings start?

  6. I’m thinking they do this on purpose and want to be seen doing this. It gives them a sense of power over the little people, and their followers eat it up.

    1. I think we’ve established that loyal Democrat voters like their betters ignoring the rules.

      It’s part of their free-shit social contract.

  7. If I lived out west I’d light off an m80 in the San Andreas every day and hope it eventually set it off, launching cali into the pacific.

  8. It is ridiculous to require people to mask up under all circumstances.

    Here, FIFY.

  9. Politicians that have their heads cut off cannot party, with or without a mask.

  10. Breed’s own COVID-19 orders require bar, restaurant, and club customers to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking.

    she “wasn’t thinking about a mask, I was thinking about having a good time, and in the process, I was following the health order.”

    The response to this should have been: “Saying, ‘I was following the health order,’ when you were in fact not following the health order is either crazy or an outright lie. Would you care to tell us which? If you can’t, I will report it as both.”

  11. Same as mayor of D.C. – and the mayor of Denver. I think this is reparations for slavery.

    1. Jeez, at least Lori Lightfoot’s blatant disregard for her own masking rules exhibits the boundless power of stupid optimism.

  12. It would be nice if someone at Reason would someday acknowledge the possibility that the ruling class isn’t doing any of this stuff _because they know it’s all a lie_. I know it’s extremely unlikely, but it would be nice.

  13. The bigger problem is that the serfs allows rules to be placed on them selectively and continue to serve their masters when they break the law.

  14. Well, I guess this is no longer an original observation, but the so-called double standard the rulers have is actually a single standard – “we’re above the law.”

    But shouldn’t they be obeying this law in their own self-interest, if it protects their health? If they don’t care to wear masks themselves, shouldn’t they realize that the people around them are unmasked and breathing on them?

    Unless they think that the balance of risks doesn’t actually require the result they impose on others.

    1. One might think that they know something they’re not telling us. Note that Guv Whitmer hasn’t reinstituted her mandates even while trying to scare us with case numbers. Perhaps she and her “Science” might have been wrong though she won’t/can’t actually admit it.

  15. “…But notice that there isn’t a mask in sight,..”

    Not only Breed, but her selected courtiers are exempt!

  16. In this year do not worry about money you can start a new Business and do an online job I have started a new Business and I am making over $84, 8254 per month I was started with 25 persons company now I have make a company of 200 peoples you can start a Business with a company of 10 to 50 peoples or join an online job.For more info click on this web link……www.cashidea1.com

  17. Sophisticated people don’t get sick or spread diseases, they are ‘our betters” after all. I won’t go as far as Goldstaedt, although headlessness does prevent spread of disease, but will state that a pillory in a public park would go far in preventing this.

  18. Black lies matter.

  19. Nice headline. Juxaposition of SF, Dems, party and breed were no doubt evocative of nightmare scenarios to the Tea Party commentariat hopefully prospecting for turncoat voters.

  20. Obama’s daughter introduced a site that can help many people financially. If you want to earn extra income every month … look no further! This is a great opportunity for anyone to earn from home. you can work online only for 5 to 8 hours on my computer and this was so smooth that I personally couldn’t accept it as true before working on this website. if you too need to earn this sort of huge cash then come and be part of us. go to the home tab section for more details…..www.cashidea1.com

  21. That band is awful.

  22. ATS Destinaire is a residential project that offers you 3/4bhk billion dollar luxury apartments Noida Apartment Extension. visit:- https://atsdestinaire.in/

  23. Little people? Puhleeze. Friday, saturday and sunday America holds football/superspreader events. Lotsa little people there.

  24. Another example showing us why we shouldn’t listen to these fucks. Its about control, nothing more. The second they think no ones looking they all take off their masks. Every liberal pants-shitter about masks when it comes down to it knows its bullshit, but they feel they need to DO SOMETHING, and they love bossing the common folk around.

  25. “…the chart-topping group Tony! Toni! Toné!”

    A lot of people might not know this, but they happen to be quite famous.

  26. It’s hard to feel sorry for people who continue to vote the d-bags in. You get what you vote for right?

    1. The republicans tell you government doesn’t work. Then they get elected and prove it.
