Last Time Americans Met Resistance Storming Beaches, Americans Won, Let's Do This
Last Time Americans Met Resistance Storming Beaches, Americans Won
PUBLIC ADVOCATE NOTE: 48 hours after he filed his lawsuit, GREG RATHS SEEMS TO HAVE WON, PARTIALLY, AS TODAY'S (MAY 13) HEADLINE IN LOS ANGELES TIMES:
Los Angeles County beaches reopen in a coronavirus milestone
Earlier on May 11,
On June 6th, 1944, Americans and the Western Allies launched the largest amphibious invasion of World War II, storming the beaches of Normandy and attacking German positions..........
...........Of course, our situation today is nowhere near as dire as Normandy. We are not at war with a hostile foreign government, nor are we under threat from an authoritarian military. We are, however, at war with a virus.
And for months now, the American people have been led by those trusted with the expertise and authority to combat this enemy.............
..............Governor Newsom's order to shut down the beaches, after Department of Homeland Security officials announced sunlight is the best disinfectant. That's not just bad leadership; it's incompetence.
The American people have the weapons, intelligence, and determination to combat the enemy. Now is the time to let them win this war.
UPDATED: Greg Raths has won his law suit, at least in Los Angeles:
"After a six-week closure, Los Angeles County beaches are reopening Wednesday to limited activities in what amounts to a small but symbolic milestone in the effort to slowly ease stay-at-home orders implemented to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Permitted activities will include running, walking, swimming and surfing. Group sports like volleyball are prohibited."
