    A Happy Newsom Sucks Protest in Thousand Oaks

    By Debra Tash

    Saturday night, November 29th in Thousand Oaks, over fifty people braved the cold, it was under 50 degrees which is cold for Southern Californians.  The gathering, organized by Move the Needle, had two purposes.  First they were collecting unwrapped gifts for Christmas with the plan of taking them to the Simi Valley police later in the month for the annual Toys for Tots effort.  They gathered quite a few to put under the tree out in front of the Original Pizza Cookery at 75 W. Thousand Oaks Blvd.

    The second purpose of the event, and really the main reason, was to protest Governor Newsom’s latest inane edict in which he imposed a curfew from 10 PM to 5 AM. The curfew started on November 21st and will last until December 21st.  This move is supposedly done to stop the spread of COVID 19, though for most it remains unclear the reasoning behind the order.  Is it to kill off the bars and movie theaters, any business that may be open past 10 PM, or is the virus more virulent between those hours? Who knows.  In any case the protest started at 9 PM and lasted until around 11PM.  Pie and glazed donuts were offered by the Cookery and the organizers led the gathering in a rousing chant of,  “Newsom Sucks.”  BTW, they weren’t all that fond of the mainstream media either.

    Move the Needle plans more such rallies in the future.  Maybe the governor has finally crossed the line after “dinnergate” at the pricy French Laundry.  No social distancing, no masks, twenty two in attendance and a bar bill of over $15,000 just doesn’t sit well with the folks.  People are losing their livelihoods along with their patience. The sentiment last night can be summed up this way – We’ve had enough!

    How you want to deal with your existence is your own stuff.
    It certainly isn’t going to change anything though 🙂

    Nothing says Christmas like a photo of a crude handmade sign depicting defecating dogs against a lovely backdrop of Toys for Tots gifts and a glittering Christmas tree. Stay classy, Citizens-Journal!

    Kudos to the demonstrators . The CNN scripted Newsome responses are proof positive that illiteracy is alive and well in California

    This just proves any idiot can pretend to be a journalist. The only thing that should be fixed are Trump supporters.

    Newsom’s orders are intended to minimize the threat of an out of control pandemic. He doesn’t want to see businesses fail or the economy worsen. He has his priorities right. Health of the American people comes first.

    Californian’s aren’t citizens, they’re hostages. In addition when they vote, they vote stupidly, “TAX ME MORE” they scream. The goofball Governor was easily elected. Did he even campaign? Do campaigns even matter? Is California like a third world country? Did Biden campaign? Barely. Did he know in advance the fix was in? Are we now no better than Venezuela? Not by much it appears. California is what America’s future looks like.

    You need to stop believing false theories that are promoted by QAnon and OAN.

    You mean that conspiracy theory that got absolutely everything wrong that it said would happen? I fully agree. And I also guess they don’t realize the guy that who was posting Q anon was hosting child porn on the same website he used to spread the conspiracy theory. Imagine that. Ignorance is limitless.
