When it comes to the COVID-19 related shutdowns, it often seems as if we are living by two different sets of rules. If a Democrat is involved, every excuse in the world is made for their inability to follow the rules that they are setting. For example, Nancy Pelosi decided to visit a hair salon and she was not wearing a mask at the time.
This goes against the rules that the Democrats are making for everyone else. To make matters worse, those who own private gyms in San Francisco are still being told that they cannot open their doors. If the gym is owned by the government, on the other hand? Those have been open for at least two months now. Sounds like a bit of a double standard to us.
These private businesses are struggling to survive, while government operated gyms are doing just fine. City employees are able to use the gyms that are owned by San Francisco, which puts a huge damper in the amount of business that these owners are able to enjoy. “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” says Crossfit Golden Gate’s Danielle Rabkin.
“Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking,” she continued. Rabkin has even asked police officers in her region if they are in need of a place to work out. She heard that the gym at their station was reportedly closed. According to a text message exchange, this is not entirely true.
The officers have maintained access to a gym at the SFPD Northern District Police Station, which is located on Fillmore Street. The police have established the necessary cleaning protocols and have set an occupancy limit for their gyms. MX3 Fitness in the Castro owner Dave Karakker is not pleased with the current situation either.
“It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do,” says Karakker and it is hard to argue with that assessment. This is the sort of tyranny that makes people wonder if Democrats are able to be trusted. So far, it seems like they only have their best interests at heart (and no one else’s).
Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus. Oh? https://t.co/oaowSO5Fmz

Rules are supposed to be followed by everyone but the Democrats do not live by this sort of creed. In their mind, this crisis is a chance to keep everyone else at home and they can simply continue to live their life as normal. The virus had led to the sort of unprecedented interruption to public life that few of us have ever seen but these interruptions only apply to the activities Democrats do not agree with.
Perhaps everything should have remained closed and all of this confusion could have been avoided? That would have been too easy, though. The Democrat leaders were not about to practice what they preach. To be fair, expecting everyone to stay at home until a vaccine is ready for mass distribution was probably not wise. That does not mean that double standards were necessary.
That’s why so many people are convinced that the virus is only being used as an excuse to shut down the bustling economy that President Trump had established. Now that they have their opportunity to grind everything to a screeching halt, they are not going to let it go anytime soon. In fact, there are already rumors circulating that the nation will not be reopened until after the election has already taken place.
The fix is in and people are starting to feel powerless to do anything about it. Small businesses are shriveling up and dying. People don’t know where their next paycheck (or even their next meal) is coming from. The unrest is rising and Biden is not the one who will be able to steer the ship back in the right direction.
