The movement to recall Governor Gavin Newsom is the latest effort being painted as an extremist “militia”-led movement, to discredit any opposition to disastrous COVID policies.
An LA Times story this past week centered on a “red town” in California that has been active in the recall effort against Newsom.
Newsom’s draconian use of government enforcers to shut down churches and businesses caused a popular grassroots reaction that has put his political career in serious jeopardy.
Instead of focusing on that considerable abuse of power, the Times story obsessed about a minor bar scuffle between a prominent local recall effort leader, Carlos Zapata, and a political adversary. 
The purpose of the story, like others churned out by MSM outlets throughout the pandemic, was to paint aggrieved citizens fed up with COVID lockdowns as anti-government extremists. 
Government Abuse of Power vs. Grassroots Pushback
How state and Federal governments and officials have abused their authorities during the COVID pandemic have been exhaustively documented at this point. Businesses, institutions, and individuals have been subjected to unequal treatment. So were political rallies and riots. 
Numerous government officials, from Nancy Pelosi to Gretchen Whitmer to Gavin Newsom, flouted their own rules. Whitmer and Newsom have seen their fortunes turn, based in no small part on their hypocrisies and attendant lies, as well as their policies. A recent Breitbart article detailed how Whitmer’s secret trip to Florida, taken at a time when she was restricting travel for Michigan residents, has dimmed her political star.
Meanwhile, late last week, Newsom’s effort to battle against his recall got a $3 million injection from Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings. Newsom drew criticism a few months ago when he allowed Hollywood film companies to resume activities while barring other businesses and organizations from doing the same.
