If the Assembly Hispanic Caucus is the honorable and dignified group they claim to be, you might expect them to immediately distance themselves from the vulgar remarks made by their member, democrat legislator Lorena Gonzales, when she tweeted a “F- – you” to Elon Musk.
This tweet was in response to his complaint about CA’s heavy handed quarantine unnecessarily damaging TESLA. Following her insult, Musk threatened to close TESLA California operations and leave for either Texas or Nevada.
We’ve reached a new low in government when such profanity by an elected official of the CA state assembly can pass for acceptable conduct.
Musk said on Twitter Saturday that the TESLA company is preparing to file a lawsuit against the county of Alameda where Tesla is based and will move its headquarters and future operations out of California.
Musk made the threat amid an escalating battle with the Alameda County Public Health Department over when operations at the automaker’s plant in Fremont can restart amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Musk had previously provided the county with a plan for safe working conditions, that included social separation, masks, gloves, etc., but one appointed bureaucrat in county government blocked it and refused to move an inch. One unelected bureaucrat in county government had the sole authority to block a multi-billion dollar company and put millions in tax revenue and hundreds of jobs at risk because they were vested with too much power. And it was all done without logic, reason and facts.
Assembly woman Gonzalez, a well known leftist union hack, tweeted her profane comment Saturday evening, then on Sunday she apparently tried to walk it back a little by explaining her emotional outburst. However, as of today, not one ranking democrat, from the governor on down, has criticized her disgraceful and immature behavior!
Who is Gonzalez? She authored two job killing bills, AB 5 and AB 51. The first bill affected independent contractors and the 2nd repealed mandatory arbitration for labor disputes.
No matter what job she held, Lorena Gonzalez says, her late mother told her never to change who she was, this included being foul-mouthed and a strong woman.
In her second year in the state Assembly, Gonzalez is a new face for the labor movement in Sacramento, pushing for guaranteed sick leave and job protections for grocery store workers. She’s been an influential voice for illegal aliens.
