California’s Gov. Newsom, Translated: U.S. Heading for “Waste Bin of History”

He may preside over what one commentator has called “our first Third World state,” but that hasn’t stopped Governor Gavin Newsom from reveling is his own prediction that the whole country will become like his California. This isn’t surprising, though. The powermongers among us would, after all, rather reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.

Of course, Newsom wasn’t thinking about the United States becoming “Californicated,” meaning, descent into a land characterized by “medieval diseases, gangs, corruption, crime, crumbling infrastructure, [and] out-of-touch wealthy elites,” as Victor Davis Hanson recently put it. Those are just by-products of what he was talking about: His predicted death of the Republican Party nationwide, which will allow the type of hegemony Democrats enjoy in the Golden State.

Newsom made his comments in a widely publicized Monday Politico interview, in which he likened today’s national Republicans to California’s GOP, which held some power in the 1990s but has in recent times become a negligible force (Democrats now have a veto-proof majority in the state legislature). As The Hill reports:

Washington Republicans will “go the same direction — into the waste bin of history, the way Republicans of the ’90s have gone. That’s exactly what will happen to this crop of national Republicans,” Newsom told Politico.

Former California Gov. Pete Wilson’s (R) push for a ballot measure in 1994 that prohibited illegal immigrants from gaining access to public schools and health care has been widely linked to the GOP’s erosion in the state.

Newson [sic] drew a connection between that and today’s politics.

“America in 2019 is California in the 1990s,” he told Politico. “The xenophobia, the nativism, the fear of ‘the other.’ Scapegoating. Talking down or past people. The hysteria. And so, we’re not going to put up with that. We are going to push back.”
