WOLF SO WOKE

While thousands of Pennsylvania small businesses worry about going broke, Gov. Tom Wolf wants you to know he’s so woke.

On Wednesday, Wolf joined a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Harrisburg, marching alongside hundreds of other protestors.

Tom Wolf Violates Pandemic Restrictions to Show How Woke He Really Is

Of course, it should be noted that Dauphin County remains in the Yellow phase of Wolf’s own coronavirus reopening plan in Pennsylvania.

The Yellow phase still strictly limits large gatherings of people. No more than 25 people is the rule.

We know this. Here in Schuylkill County, there are still plenty of businesses that can’t open their doors to customers. Many others have been forced to drastically alter operations in an attempt just to stay afloat. Thousands of people have been forced to unemployment.

High school graduates have been robbed of a rite of passage. And instead, they’ve been forced to accept a less than stellar substitute with these bizarre drive-by graduations.

This is all because of rules Wolf ordered to curb the spread of the Chinese virus in Pennsylvania.

Those rules he created must be followed with an asterisk though. Either the pandemic is over or they take a break for virtue signaling.

Clearly, they don’t apply to self-loathing white liberals trying to prove they’re not racists by joining a street protest.

Like so many other times during the pandemic, the rules don’t apply to Wolf. Donning a blue face mask and looking painfully out of place, Wolf robotically marched alongside other protestors who remain upset at the killing of Minneapolis man George Floyd.

Levine Dodges Question on Protest Safety at Press Conference

Media members on the Governor’s beat asked Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine about Wolf’s behavior on Wednesday. Of course, she defended his right to protest and didn’t express a single concern about the potential public health ramifications.

“The governor has always said that people have the right to protest and demonstrate and the right of free speech,” Levine said.

Note: It’s not Tom Wolf who says that. It’s part of the US Constitution.

But when small business owners gathered in Harrisburg in early May to demonstrate against his tyranny, Wolf and Levine lashed out at protestors then. While they did say it was their right to gather, they each questioned the protestors’ morality, noting how they could be putting themselves and their families at risk of acquiring a deadly virus.

And don’t forget when small businesses in Schuylkill County were ready to open their doors in May but Wolf called them “cowardly” and “selfish” for “surrendering” to the virus and showing their willingness to put others’ health at risk.

That didn’t matter on Wednesday.

“Overall, we want large gatherings such as … such as maybe a party or some type of concert or something to be under 250 people. But we are not restricting peoples’ right to protest. There are obviously significant social issues that are present that people feel they need to have a voice and so the Governor is always supportive of that and is participating in that,” Levine said on Wednesday at a press conference.

Someone should let the Health Secretary know the rule is 25 people under the Yellow phase, not 250. You’d think she would know that. But again, nothing was said about the potential public health risks taken by the protestors on Wednesday.

Truly absurd behavior.

    Looks like the whole social distancing thing is irrelevant now, except for high school graduates, barbershops, salons, restaurants, craft stores, etc, who still must comply, or be called cowards and selfish and threatened by Tom Wolf.

      What’s crazy is that they seem oblivious to it all. As if we don’t see through the hypocrisy. They better contact trace everyone at the protest that got near him and make them quarantine for 14 days like the rest of us must. They’ll have another protest march against that and then he can call the same people he walked alongside cowards and irresponsible.

        The hypocrisy of the white guilt ridden social justice left is astounding. The endless displays on social media where they proclaim their “profound privilege” and profusely apologize for it and all the sins of being white in repeated attempts to show how not racist they are by constant virtue signaling. In doing so, they really come off as snotty brats whose parents still feed them with a silver spoon. People see through this hypocrisy now, leaders like Wolf’s days are numbered, good americans of all races just want to be able to work and take care of their families. If we could only be as morally superior as the hipsters in Brooklyn and San Francisco who don’t know or work with any minorities but put a BLM# on their instagram posts……

      Just like everything else, the “laws” only appply to “law abiding” people, not the lawless. What’s worse, is now the “lawless” are not being prosecuted or held accountable, for their lawless behaviors, elected leaders included. Its time for change.

    What is scary is how Dr. Levine said Gov. Wolf said that it is ok to have Free Speech and Right to Protest.
    This idiot thinks that the First Amendment is from Gov. Wolf. HOW ABOUT UNALIENABLE RIGHTS DERVIED FROM GOD NOT GIVEN TO US BY THE GOVERNMENT!!

    Crushing defeat of these socialist, hypocrite dictators and their types, for generations, is the only remedy for this behavior and inexcusable governance. The people of PA got what they asked for, just like the Hussein Obama cartels, with help from the lobbies and union endorsements…the landscape has changed…i truly hope we never allow this to happen again. Wolf and Levine be gone, you’ve kept your boots on all of our collective necks for long enough…

    Did you all see the statement issued by the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association (President David Kennedy)?

    Hunted all day yesterday (6/4) to see someone–anyone–noticing Wolf’s violation of his own rule–in two ways–he clearly was closer than 6 feet to men on either side of him, and he participated in a gathering of “hundreds” (about 10x his maximum allowed). Nothing on ‘the news’–no surprise–but nothing on Fox either. Not until this morning with State Police responding did I see ANY notice of Wolf’s forked tongue. Very good to see that you all see it too. Wish I lived in Schuylkill–but am in lefty Montgomery. Go Canaries!

      Thanks for your support. Honestly, we think it’s pretty easy to see through a politician’s BS. The media craves access to these people as if they think they have to earn it. Will rarely see them be critical. Doesn’t really represent the voice of the people. So, it’s no surprise many of them are hurting financially at this point. Most would take a government bail out to save themselves. Pretty sad.

    Wolf is part of the L3 crowd(liars, leakers & liberals). As Dr Mike Savage stated “liberalism is a mental disorder”.

    In his/her response which was less than a minute, “Um. Uh. You know” was said over 10 times. The more you say um, the more you are telling me you have no idea what you are talking about.

    It is incredibly hypocritical of wolf to participate in a protest that directly violates his own lockdown. However, the protest is to stop black people from being murdered, which is much more dangerous than the pandemic

      What about Hispanic people and Asian people and white people and Eskimos? More white people die by police gunfire than black people nationwide. But the first part of your comment is definitely true.

          You’re right. But police violence against all people is a real problem. The protests are fighting for regulations against that

      So…..people are killed by police officers, in overwhelming percentages, because they are armed and a threat to the officer(s) and/or others. Rarely, are unarmed people shot by police officers. Deadly force is the last resort of the “force continuum”, and ALL law enforcement is taught that, repeatedly. They are trained, in that case, to shoot “center mass” if deadly force is necessary. There are bad people everywhere…Teachers, Doctors, Lawyers, Correction Officers, Parents, the list goes on and on…the point is, excessive force and/or brutality is the exception, rather than the rule. There is no excuse for it. As there is no excuse for looting, burning and rioting, in the name of a longtime felon, who died by seemingly, excessive force. 2 wrongs do not make a right, and it’s a tragic event, no matter how you slice it.

    All of these “demands“ are being made, all the protests, killings, looting and destruction are occurring. What are the responsibilities of those committing these heinous acts? They should have to do their part, and realize that life is full of give and take, not just “take”.

    So, i wondered about something earlier, and lo and behold, whaddaya know, BLM is being used as a money funnel for the DNC and other prominent Dems. They couldn’t rub 2 nickels together a few months ago via fundraising, now…VOILA!…money in buckets, bricks, firebombs, pipes and everything else. What a scam. You owe it to yourselves to know this stuff…FOLLOW THE MONEY.

    There are more non-racists then there are racists
    there’s always going to be racism you can’t stop it all of it.
    Why doesn’t BLM have a cop rally for reform if they want to reform?
    BLM protestors and the radical Left seem oxymoronic then they do rhetoric. so what’s really their message? vote democrat? Ever wonder where BLM Donations actually go? Even though The Internal Revenue Service stipulates that 501(c)(3) organizations are “absolutely prohibited” from making contributions to political campaigns… guess where it’s going to! That’s right, “ActBlue”….❄️😡 Black Lives Matter Global Foundation, Inc. fails to comment.”

    Fact: In 2019 a little over a thousand people were killed by cops and only 24% of them were black Americans yet the fake war on racism continues
    black people were shot by a cop then white people, the real problem with the black
    community is 70% of them were raised fatherless compared to the 30% of
    white people which would most likely cause the influence in lack of
    education do to the lack of stability from not having both parents in their lives.

    defund the police means defund black officers and the new green deal means thousands of black men losing their jobs. too bad everyone that #walkaway from the Dems couldn’t sue the libelous media they were so maliciously pushed to believe…
    also if your for BLM your for Aborting babies 9 month’s from a mother’s womb where she will be traumatized and mind trapped forever remembering that smell during and after the abortion “Abortion” how far is to far with the Liberal Mob?
    Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization and the only time black lives matter is when a “White” cop kills a black man,
    and that is all, they don’t give a shit about black on black killing or black cops killing a black civilian.
