A mere half month since Washington Governor and career political dishonorably relinquished his emergency powers first exercised in the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, a former college football coach has filed legal action against the state.
Ex-Washington State University gridiron headman Nick Rolovich, who was abruptly terminated last year along with four assistant coaches for refusing to receive the Coronavirus vaccine, officially put out word that he will seek $25 million in damages from the state of Washington, and the WSU athletic department. Rolovich’s contract was worth $11 million for five years and immediately voided upon his midseason release in 2021 following a victory over Stanford (the Cougars were 4-3 at the time). Since being axed, the former Hawaii University quarterback and one of the burgeoning offensive minds in the college game, has not returned to the coaching profession.
While athletic director Patrick Chun brusquely to part ways with the controversial coach in allying with the sordid optics and politicization of the pandemic from those praying on the fear of the masses to inflict control, the move was as disingenuous as a guileless deplorable PR campaign playing into the hands of Inslee and cronies occupying the chambers at the state capital.
Not only did the Washington Governor claim emergency powers early in the pandemic that ungraciously lingered for the stunning length of 975 days, but during the tumultuous and tyrannical run exploiting an elected position, the demagogue deliberately and subversively branded health recommendations and official decrees from his offices as binding “mandates”. As a result of illegally enforcing announcements that ironically had no legal standing, and blatantly disguising the vernacular as “legislation”, Inslee and minions violated basic rights and freedoms, and are complicit for the subsequent damages to endured by citizens directly affected by the procedural malaise of unrelenting bureaucracy.
As Rolovich and his legal team claim that his free will and religious beliefs were severely compromised by the state and the university, the prolific courtroom battle (if the state does not settle) could have ramifications that span the nation should a favorable ruling for the former head coach be found. However, any positive gains from a courtroom victory would be immediately nullified by the obstinate and regressive political climate of Washington, which was on full display as residents were subject to from behind the Iron Curtain. Fortunately, the majority of elected officials do not have a grasp of ideological physics where for every putrid piece of legislation, there exists an equally reasonable measure that mends the destructive protocol. Unfortunately, the crushing net weight of bureaucratic infrastructure ends up hampering the spirit of ingenuity.
During the arduous and tenuous reign of Inslee enforcing his will on the people, businesses were shuttered, hysteria was propagated, and long-term consequences set into motion through a ridiculous interpretation of reality, and the insatiable lust for power. Gullible residents still live in fear and hamstring the ebb and flow of life by insufferably donning masks when walking outdoors or driving alone in a self-driving vehicle. As the contemporary ecosystem of the information age has been marred by the propensity of government to rule, rather than lead, the axiom of creating proxy oligarchies far outweighs the time-tested fortitude of common sense.
While the permanence of damage proliferates from the confines of reasonable civil decorum spilling over the set of standards and expectations ingrained within the system of checks and balances, there exists no room for corruption and indifference.
At the end of the fleeting day, the degradation of freedom caused by overzealous idealists should be governed by sanctions imposed on those who knowingly inflict upon society incredulous ordinances lacking democratic validity. To those responsible for the overbearing waste, the tax-payers who is on the hook for millions of dollars should be vindicated through the process of justice.
If Rolovich manages to win his suit or settle out of court the floodgates will be open for legions of state workers terminated for choosing to not get the Covid-19 poke. However, the hypocrisy of Inslee cannot be forgotten as the aforementioned public employees included state patrol members and department of transportation road crews, which resulted in a reduction of public safety, a crucial issue that Democrats nationally seem to ignore as crime and violence surges. Disturbingly, liberal voters displaying cognitive dissonance seem to discount the looming hypocrisy and the disappointing midterm election results remain a concrete example of a nation divided as sentiment drives the progressive lobby rather than reason.
