‘Snowflake weepies’: LA County supervisor mocks those opposed to potential mask mandate

Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl mocked those opposed to a potential mask mandate at a board meeting on Tuesday, calling them “snowflake weepies” regarding their alarm over the resurrection of the policy.

In a stunning expression of lack of compassion for what Democratic COVID policies put Americans through the last go-around, Kuehl sank to a new low during the meeting, deriding Los Angeles residents who would dare to oppose her edict which could go into effect by Friday, July 29.

“I’m particularly struck by the blowback from a number, though not a really significant number of sort of, snowflake weepies about how oppressive it is to wear a mask,” the Democratic official sneered, showing her utter contempt for others.

“I don’t hear them writing me about shoes, which are actually more oppressive to your feet than wearing a mask on your face but we do that really for health or the requirement to wear a shirt when you enter a restaurant,” Kuehl mocked.

One person on Twitter nailed it after Kuehl hatefully called one of her constituents a coward for objecting, “Unreal… @SheilaKuehl calls one of her constituents a ‘Coward’ after her snowflake weepie rant. This is the kind of representation you can only expect in Los Angeles county.”

The mask mandates crippled the nation for a year and a half. It stunted the education of students, caused businesses to fail, kept people from their loved ones, and spun the nation into an economic downward spiral. Kuehl seems either oblivious to it or just doesn’t care.

Houman David Hemmati, MD, Ph.D., who is an ophthalmologist, was not impressed and had a message for Kuehl.

“A message from my 6 year old daughter Parisa to embattled, childless @CountyofLA Supervisor @SheilaKuehl who referred to kids (and their parents) who don’t want to be muzzled all day as ‘Snowflake Weepies.’ @adamcarolla @ReopenCASchools @urgencyofnormal @UprisingLa @LASchools,” he tweeted and attached a video from his daughter.

Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said she will announce her decision on the mask mandate no later than Friday.

The county appeared set to implement the mandate this week, but recent declines in COVID case numbers could prompt a delay. The resurrection of the draconian policy has sparked debate, with some Los Angeles communities saying they won’t enforce another mask mandate, according to the LA Times.

The local governments in a number of cities in Los Angeles County, including Beverly Hills, Manhattan Beach, and Long Beach, have already said that they would defy a county mandate on masks, according to NBC Los Angeles.

In December 2020, Kuehl made headlines after she dined outdoors just hours after voting to ban outdoor dining at restaurants in the county over concerns about the spread of COVID.

She was seen eating outside at Il Forno Trattoria, an Italian restaurant near her home in Santa Monica, California. Earlier that day, Kuehl described outdoor dining as “a most dangerous situation,” telling a meeting of the LA County Board of Supervisors that the practice was unsafe.

“This is a serious health emergency and we must take it seriously,” Kuehl hypocritically proclaimed. “The servers are not protected from us, and they’re not protected from their other tables that they’re serving at that particular time, plus all the hours in which they’re working.”
