At this point This video is a relic from back in the days when the public, the politicians and the health officials still kind of acted like we might be in the middle of a health crisis instead of whatever out of mind out of sight thing it is we’re doing now, but if I had to sit here and watch it, then by god you’re gonna sit here and watch it too.
You don’t have to stick around for the rest of the crazy people (I made it through three or four of them for some reason), but this first woman is something else.
Donning a red and white Santa cap, the woman, who identified herself as “Bridgette,” stepped to the mic during Tuesday’s public comments portion of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors meeting. Although not the only one opposing an extension of the local health emergency order — which later was approved on a 3-2 vote — she was the only one who came with a rendition of a beloved holiday pop staple.
She urged the body to “end this emergency” before breaking into song.
The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” variation has a little bit of everything. It namechecks the antiparasitic drug Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. It pushes back against so-called “useless masks” and makes a plea for her children to go to school. It’s also a little pitchy and comes with a slow side-to-side jig.
“I just want my freedom now,” the woman sang. “The Constitution will show us how. Make my dreams come true. Baby, end the emergency. Let’s have a happy holiday, everybody.”
It should be noted that most of San Diego County’s pandemic restrictions have been lifted since June and school districts in the area have students in class in-person on a daily basis.
If you’re looking for a parody that more accurately reflects our current times, this one’s just about perfect.
