San Francisco elected a new mayor, London Breed (seriously, that’s her name).
She gave her first ever sit-down interview since her election and said something remarkable:
“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here. That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”
Now “there’s more feces” is trending on Twitter. Congratulations San Francisco, you will forever be immortalized in the annals of social media for drowning in shit.
In typical Liberal ineptitude, her plan to combat this weak.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed, in her first one-on-one interview since taking office, said homeless advocacy groups that receive funding from the city need to better educate the homeless to “clean up after themselves.”
“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” Breed told the Investigative Unit, referencing her conversations with nonprofit groups aimed at serving the homeless.
When pressed about whether her plan calls for harsher penalties against those who litter or defecate on city streets, Breed said “I didn’t express anything about a penalty.” Instead, the mayor said she has encouraged nonprofits “to talk to their clients, who, unfortunately, were mostly responsible for the conditions of our streets.”
Just ask the homeless people receiving food and shelter not to shit in the street after they are done shooting up heroine. Let me know how effective that will be.
San Francisco is slated to spend nearly $280 million this year on housing and services for the homeless — a roughly 40 percent increase compared to just five years ago. Over that same span, however, the number of homeless in the city has largely remained the same at about 7,500 people, according to city counts.
“About 70 percent of the people estimated to be homeless in San Francisco were actually housed in San Francisco before they became homeless,” Breed said. “We have to make sure people who live here, [and] sadly, people who are homeless here, that they are also held accountable for taking care of our streets. This is our home.”
Oh, so almost one-third of their homeless came to San Francisco after they became homeless. Maybe drastically increasing the spending on the homeless to make them more comfortable in their homelessness is part of the reason the problem is as bad as it is.
It’s obvious the Mayor Breed is only going to make things worse, because she is pulling straight from the same Leftist playbook that turned San Francisco and Seattle into open air homeless sewers in the first place and is currently undoing all of the progress made in New York under Giuliani.
Here’s my suggestion, and it will be much cheaper.
Allow the homeless to shit and sleep and dump garbage everywhere. Say this is a policy to make all the H-1B visa tech workers from India and Bangladesh feel more at home when they come to Silicon Valley. Then state that anybody who criticizes this policy is a culturally insensitive, white supremacist, xenophobe. I guarantee nobody will ever complain about the shit on the streets of San Francisco again, and you can save the $280 million per year.
