In the “liberal world…,” in the “socialist wannabe world…,” in the “democrat world…,” words and supposed good intentions are more important than actions…, and definitely more important than effective solutions.
According to Liam Quinn of Fox News, “Seattle’s homeless crisis has reached such catastrophic levels that a north-side cemetery has become home to drug abuse, drug dealing and prostitution.”
Not to mention a filthy “tent city.” And it’s a worsening problem.
“Bikur Cholim Cemetery board member and city council candidate Ari Hoffman detailed the desperate effort to fight the epidemic and placed blame for how bad it has gotten squarely on the local government. ‘The city council, city elected officials failed our city. They created a haven where it is OK for people to die on the streets through drug use, and to live on the streets people who have a mental illness,’ Hoffman told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘They are not offering treatment solutions, and they are failing us.’”
“Hoffman added: ‘Through 2013, the homeless population was relatively stable. And then what happened after that is it grew… because the policies they had enabled drug use behavior. It’s just absolutely tragic that we have people who are living inside of a cemetery, that are dealing drugs outside of a cemetery, and are running prostitution in a cemetery, but you see it on the streets all over Seattle.’”
“Hoffman, who is running for city council, then took aim at “non-performing non-profits” for not doing enough to combat the crisis and revealed what he believes is the first step to turn back the tide.”
‘“You have to wonder where the money goes, the first thing we need to do is audit where all that money is going. There’s plenty of money, the city’s coffers are full, the money is just not being spent appropriately,’ he told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘According to Seattle’s own numbers, 78 percent of people want to be off heroin. They don’t want to have addiction problems, they want treatment. Unfortunately there just aren’t enough services – there aren’t enough mental health options for them… we need to make sure those services are available for people on the streets.’”
Hmmm, that’s odd. People are wondering where all of the money is going that was supposedly designated to go to programs to help people. How many times have we heard that? How many times do we find these supposed “do gooders” pilfering the people’s money and misappropriating it? How many times?! And then we are forced to listen to how heartless we are when we complain about how much money is spent and how it is spent. Just sayin’.
Homelessness is on the rise nationwide, and the west coast is leading the country.
Our left coast, ooops…, I mean our west coast states are such overachievers!
Except usually they’re leading the way in all of the wrong directions!
This cemetery, which has been commandeered by all of these homeless people, is littered with used syringes, drug paraphernalia and all kinds of other debris.
God forbid anyone actually wants to come and visit a lost loved one or pay their respects to someone buried there.
What the hell is going on here!?
The whole situation is pathetic, disrespectful and sad.
“Hoffman went on to paint a dire picture of the scene at the historic Bikur Cholim Cemetery.”
‘“They find needles, they find drugs, they find human feces all over the place and they have to clean it all up,” he said. ‘Our grounds-crew has been pricked by needles before, they’ve been assaulted by people they found living there, they’ve found people on the ground overdosed thinking they were dead.’”
Excuse me “blue state know it alls…,” but don’t try and drag the rest of us ignorant deplorables down to your enlightened level of confusion and corruption.
“Federal data released in 2018 found Washington State’s homeless population had risen more than any other state in the country.”
“Seattle, in King County, had a homeless population of 12,112 — the third highest in the country behind Los Angeles and New York City.”
Ahhh, Los Angeles and New York. Two other proud beacons of progressive sanctuary in our country!
Then of course we have the lovely and extremely liberal city of San Francisco, California.
If you visit, just make sure you watch where you’re walking!
According to Greg Norman for Fox News, “San Francisco’s mayor has created a new program called ‘Poop Patrol’ to clean up the human waste [from the ever growing homeless population] from the infested sidewalks.”
This program is driven by a smartphone “App” that allows concerned citizens to report offending piles of excrement to the proper authorities!
Only in a liberal city gone mad!
“The details of the complaints that the San Francisco Department of Public Works has received are unclear, but data shows the number of sightings has increased dramatically since 2011. That year, 5,547 human feces incidents were reported. The number rose to 28,084 in 2018.”
Now that’s a lot of crap! And that’s only the crap that was reported! There’s bound to be twice that much crap lying around in reality!
This is the utopia that democrats want to help spread to a city or town near you!
Stay thirsty my friends…, but don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aide…, or step without looking first…, at least in San Francisco!
