Top 5 Reasons Gavin Newsom Is a Fascistic, Hypocritical Sleazebag [Opinion]


Here are the top five reasons Gavin Newsom should be thought of as a disgusting piece of fascist garbage. Among the top five reasons Newsom should be thought of as an Antichrist-like figure are his infamous rule-breaking dinner at the French Laundry in 2020, his requiring children to get the poisonous COVID injections to go to school, and his silencing doctors with the passage of AB2098.

While it’s obvious for anybody with a brain in their head to see that California Governor Gavin Newsom is an absolute goblin of a human being, some people still have trouble comprehending this unequivocal fact. To help elucidate the issue, here are the top five examples (out of many more) that evince why Newsom’s picture belongs next to the word “Antichrist” in the dictionary.


In November 2020, after implementing some of the strictest COVID-19 “public health measures” in the country (California was the first state to lockdown in the nation, yet still to this day has the most deaths out of any state) Newsom was spotted dining and socializing at the French Laundry, an upscale, three-Michelin restaurant in northern California. At the dinner with Newsom were California Medical Association CEO Dustin Corcoran and then SVP of California Medical Association Janus Norman, along with nine other people.

After Newsom and state officials spent months urging Californians not to co-mingle with members of other households—and discouraging families from gathering for the holidays—this action exemplified blatant hypocrisy. At the time, the California Department of Public Health said that restaurant patrons “must wear face coverings” unless “they [were] eating or drinking.” Restaurant patrons were also only allowed to remove their masks if “they [were] able to maintain a distance of at least six feet away from persons who are not members of the same household or residence.”

Nobody at the table with Newsom was masking or “socially distancing” themselves.

Not incidentally, it was also reported at the time that Newsom’s kids were still attending their private school while most public schools remained closed.


A second example of Newsom being an absolute garbage human being comes from his signing legislation that limits the free speech rights of California doctors.

As The Mercury News reported in October of 2022 Newsom signed into law AB2098, which declared that it shall “constitute unprofessional conduct for a physician and surgeon to disseminate misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.” AB2098 notes that medical boards are allowed “to take action against any licensed physician and surgeon who is charged with unprofessional conduct.”

Mercury News reported that “Vaccine skeptics and mandate critics were joined in opposition by a number of doctors, health officials and free speech advocates who argued the bill was counterproductive censorship that will further erode trust in health officials.”

On March 31, 2023 California-based physician and PhD Epidemiologist Tracy Beth Høeg called out Newsom for his blatant hypocrisy in this context. When Newsom wrote that the GOP has become “the party that opposes free speech and free markets,” Høeg responded “Wait a minute here [Gavin Newsom,] are you aware of a bill you signed into law [AB2098] that restricts physicians’ freedom of speech which Høeg v Newsom has [a] prelim injunction against?”


Even worse than attempting to silence doctors and destroy their First Amendment right to free speech was Newsom’s decision to mandate the COVID bioweapon injections for children attending public schools in the state.

In October of 2021, California became the first state in the U.S. to add the COVID-19 injection to the list of vaccinations required for students to attend in-person learning. Newsom’s law required children as young as Kindergarten-aged to be “vaccinated” against COVID-19, with the only exceptions being due to personal beliefs or medical concerns. However, the criteria for these exemptions were not explicitly listed, encouraging Democrats within the state’s legislature like state Senator Scott Wiener to call for the removal of “personal belief exemptions.”

For reference, the COVID bioweapon injections are enormously harmful and utterly ineffective. The poison jabs have been linked to blood clotting, myocarditis, shingles, menstrual issues, and paralysis. The injections have also been linked to impaired semen concentration and autoimmune disease. The infection fatality rate (IFR) for people aged 0-17 is also astronomically low, of course. The CDC estimates the IFR of that age group at .002%.

The injections have also been linked to enormous increases in all-cause mortality, and are unequivocally incapable of preventing any kind of disease spread. In fact, they make it more likely that an individual contracts COVID-19.

The same month the COVID injection was added to the list of required “vaccines,” thousands of families went to the state capitol to protest. In February of 2023 The Los Angeles Daily News reported California officials “quietly backed away from plans to require COVID-19 vaccinations for K-12 school students, a move that avoids the prospect of barring tens of thousands of unvaccinated children from the classroom.”


Newsom again exposed his true, disgusting nature following the March 2023 Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse. Following the sudden collapse of the bank, the California governor urged the Biden administration to bail it out. While he maintained multiple accounts at the bank.

In a March 2023 article titled “Cheering Silicon Valley Bank Bailout, Gavin Newsom Doesn’t Mention He’s a Client,” The Intercept outlined how three of Newsom’s wineries—including CADE, Odette, and Plumpjack—were all listed as clients on SVB’s website. The Intercept also reported that Newsom had “also maintained personal accounts at SVB for years” according to one of his former employees who had insight into the governor’s finances.

The Washington Times also reported that SVB gave $100,000 to the California Partners Project, a charity founded by Newsom’s wife, “at the governor’s request.”


In March of 2020 the Sacramento Bee reported that “Gavin Newsom’s recommendation that hospitals and nursing homes severely restrict visitors threw hundreds of thousands of California families into disarray and heartache….” The Bee reported at that time that Betsy Donovan, chief operating officer at Eskaton, a major chain of skilled nursing and assisted living centers in Sacramento, said “Isolation is very, very difficult for older adults. Many believe it can be more detrimental than some physical ailments.”

It was more than clear by late 2020 that California’s nursing home residents were suffering from isolation due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“The older population already runs the risk of being very lonely in our society, whether they live in a facility such as ours or they live at home,” Katy Tenner, a dietitian at a nursing home in Sacramento, California told ABC News on November 19, 2020. “So that was something we saw right away among the dementia patients — the ones who really require a lot of routine and normalcy.”  

Nursing home staff had to step into the “social services” role whether they were “qualified or not” to, Tenner added. “We are now some of the only people that our residents see on a daily basis — the only familiar faces.” Immediately below is one example of how the elderly were isolated from their families when they needed to see them most.

In March of 2021 U.S. News reported that California finally lifted most COVID-19 restrictions on nursing homes. “Nursing home residents and staff in California sang ‘Over the Rainbow’ as they resumed group activities and allowed visitors back in,” U.S. News reported. The outlet noted that “Nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other kinds of elderly residences battered by COVID-19 are easing restrictions and opening their doors for the first time since the start of the pandemic,” consequently leading to “joyous reunions around the country after a painful year of isolation, Zoom calls and greetings through windows.”
