Nauseating Video Shows 10 Solid Minutes of Homeless Shanties in Socialist Paradise California

California is supposed to be the embodiment of the “American dream”… but it’s turning into a liberal nightmare.

The once-wealthy and beautiful state has had leftists running amok at the state and city levels for decades. Democrats have completely controlled the state legislature for over 20 years, and the results have not been good.

As the state clamors to be a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens and continues to defy national immigration laws, the dire problems have peaked. Stunningly, the state of California now has the highest poverty rate in the entire country.

It’s one thing to read about that failure, but it’s something else entirely to see it firsthand. That’s why a recent video is getting attention: It’s illustrates just how far California has fallen under liberal policies.

“This video is incredible,” wrote Jim Dalrymple, a contributor for BuzzFeed.

“It’s shows a 10 min bike ride through Orange County, CA, and almost the entire path is lined with homeless tent cities,” he explained. ?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

“At 2:10 the guy rides by what sounds like a fight about to break out,” the reporter explained. “At 4:40, he goes right by Angel Stadium, which is also surrounded by encampments.”

For ten minutes, the video shows what can only be described as a dump: Tents for the homeless set up along the road, trash strewn about.

“This place is about a mile from Disneyland,” commented a viewer on YouTube who was familiar with the area. Welcome to liberal California.

How well has a “sanctuary state” policy and seemingly endless immigration worked? It’s hard to deny that it’s a disaster.

“California had the highest poverty rate, 20.6 percent, according to the census’ Supplemental Poverty Measure,” PolitFact recently admitted.

“That study does account for cost-of-living, including taxes, housing and medical costs, and is considered by researchers a more accurate reflection of poverty.”

The sad results are difficult to ignore. In the past, the liberalism on the west coast state was sometimes shrugged off by conservatives as just part of life, because it was still a great place to live and was home to a booming tech sector. But nothing lasts forever.

“It now has more poverty than any state. One out of five Californians is poor. If immigration makes us richer, why is California getting poorer?” Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who grew up in California, asked on a recent show. “What is the answer to that I wonder?”

The answer is that socialist-leaning policies and unlimited immigration has dire results. Look at places like Venezuela: Naturally beautiful, rich in resources, and now a horror story of food and toilet paper shortages after socialism was introduced. You might even call it a “s***hole.”

American needs to pay attention, because California is the canary in the mine shaft for the rest of the country. We need to keep this failure from spreading to the rest of country, before it’s too late.
