California is well known to have different priorities than the rest of the nation, but there may be even more differences than even the constitution allows. They’ve gone from a land of movie stars and botox to possibly being the new hub of communism.
The first problem arose when the leader of the Calexit movement finally decided that he really felt more at home in Russia.
Via Fox News:
The man behind the Calexit movement, which pushed for California to secede from the union, is now distancing himself from the controversial effort and said he will stay in Russia.
Louis Marinelli, who helped launch the movement to make California an independent state, said that he “intends to make Russia” his “new home.” As a result, he is withdrawing his petition for a “Calexit” referendum.
Marinelli has said in the past that in Russia he has found, “a new happiness, a life without the albatross of frustration and resentment towards ones’ homeland.”
Here’s an interview with Marinelli as he outlines Calexit from the comfort of his new digs in Russia:
That is super troubling when you consider that if the Calexit movement were successful, and this joker had won some kind of political office (which seems likely) he could have let his buddies over in Russia hang out there with whatever military power they felt necessary.
As if that weren’t bad enough, AP News is now reporting that everybody’s favorite left coast state has a bill headed to the state Senate that would make it not a fireable offense for a person to be involved with communist.
Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.
Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.
It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.
If you want to know how possible a move like this is, you can hear some of the nitty gritty facts about how it would work here:
While even some conservatives are willing to let California go, considering all of the liberals that they always bring the election party, this would make for another sovereign nation with a whole lot of physical ties to the United States. It’s kind of like when you hear that a neighbor you hate is moving; at first, there’s relief, then the tension of not knowing what you might get as a replacement settles in. Sometimes the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.
