Ridgewood NJ, apparently the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights are still above his pay grade . In April New Jersey governor Phil Murphy said he “wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights” while implementing social-distancing measures — writing off any constitutional considerations as being “above [his] pay grade.”
Yesterday Governor Murphy commented,”There’s nothing patriotic about calling elected officials “fascists.” Phil Murphy , using the one the greatest fights to preserve those freedoms , 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe to criticize anti-lockdown protesters in New Jersey .Murphy said ,“some misguided people” have been labeling democratically-elected officials “fascists” and “Nazis” while demonstrating against stay-at-home and other “pandemic-related” regulations.
This from a governor who has publicly made statements like if you don’t like high taxes, ” NJ Might Not Be For You ” or better yet , Unhappy with the guy in charge …. “Go to another state.” Or even better ,“Many of you have come my way, your interventions to me did not matter one little bit,” Murphy said. “With all due respect to all the pressure that’s been out there, we couldn’t frankly care.”
