For one of the most liberal cities in the United States, the so-called “sanctuary city” of San Francisco looks and smells like a total pigsty, if not worse.
Downtown San Francisco, in particular, is littered with “drug needles, garbage, and feces,” according to a recent survey by Bay Area station KNTV.
And this refuse affects more than just the suited businessmen who traverse the streets daily en route to work. It affects children as well.
“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” local preschool teacher Adelita Orellana remarked. “Sometimes they (her students) ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”
Nor should these “things” — which reportedly include 100 drug needles and more than 300 piles of feces sprawled across 153 blocks of downtown San Francisco — even be present to begin with.
But it gets worse.
According to Dr. Lee Riley, an infectious disease expert who’s “researched conditions across the poorest slums of the world,” the filth in San Francisco exceeds that of the filth found in downtrodden communities in Brazil, Kenya and India.
But how did this happen? It’s called liberalism, folks. Or put more verbosly, “San Francisco is the living example of what happens when socialist liberalism is allowed to expand indefinitely,” as noted by Kira Davis of RedState.
Exactly. From providing a sanctuary to third-world illegal immigrants such as Kate Steinle’s killer, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, to doling out generous welfare packages to low-income residents and eliminating basic sanitation codes, the leftist residents of San Francisco and the leftist lawmakers they elect into office have transformed the once-vibrant city into a hotbed of filth.
Did you know, for instance, that two years ago a local judge dismissed 66,000 arrest warrants for crimes such as “sleeping on the sidewalk,” being drunk in public” and “urinating on sidewalks” because he essentially felt bad for the perpetrators, as reported then by the San Francisco Chronicle?
“You’re putting somebody in jail because they’re poor and can’t pay a fine,” he complained during his ruling, his non-point point being that arresting criminals for failing to pay just fines is uncompassionate.
Sadly, this naive, bleeding-heart mentality permeates San Francisco like a thick fog, and the results speak for themselves.
“The floor is dirty. There is poop in there. That makes me angry!” exclaimed one 3-year-old child, A’Nylah Reed, describing to KNTV how she must navigate through piles of poop every morning on her way to school.
But do the leftists of San Francisco care? Apparently not, given as they’re too busy catering to illegal immigrants, homeless vagrants and leeches to give a hoot about kids like A’Nylah Reed.
Sad. Disgusting. Repugnant. Shameful. There are a thousand different words I could use to describe the situation in San Francisco, and “nice” isn’t one of them.
