The dumb Dems are destroying American cities. So sad!
Liberal cities like LA, Chicago and San Francisco are becoming Third World armpits. The klutzy Dems will turn America into Chicago’s South Side, LA’s Skid Row or worse with their full-throated socialism.
Liberal cities in America, helmed by twitchy Democrats and technocratic hacks, are degenerating into Third World, bacteria-laced wastelands. It’s not just the fact that San Fran’s streets are now festooned with heaps of human poo, blood-drenched syringes and foul detritus, either. Seattle is also imploding into developing world status like China, France or Venezuela, signified by economic strife, rampant homelessness, drug addiction and wicked crime clusters. Chicago has created an entire class of impoverished denizens and disenfranchised prey (who get killed in droves — Baghdad-style — by barbarous drive-by assassins and gangsters’ reprisals). Homeless residents and afflicted ruffians in Democrat-led cities are spreading typhus, HIV, influenza and other infectious diseases at alarming rates, with neighborhoods in LA and Newark now being classified as “humanitarian crisis zones.” WTF?!
Yet the liberal leaders of those pity cities — like all “progressives” — are unwilling to take any action to ameliorate the problems in the first place. Instead, they enact new policies that make the problems worse, calling for ”equitability”, “safe havens” and “sanctuaries” along with “wealth redistribution”, class warfare and democratic socialism. Leftist fantasy has so grotesquely over-run reality with virtue messaging, agit-prop campaigns and political psychodrama that we might as well be living in an alt universe cacotopia. The whole gestalt feels like it could come unglued at any moment.
Journalist Eric Johnson recently shot a compelling, albeit heartbreaking, doc called ‘Seattle is Dying’ which explores that city’s shocking collapse into a Third World slum (below). It also reflects the broader trend of urban blight and social decay — a trend made possible and perpetuated by decades of Democratic rule. It’s a damn shame.
But instead of implementing policies to reverse the secular stagnation (i.e. idiotic liberal economic policies that always lead to destitution and collapse), the political elite have launched a PR campaign to brainwash local sheeple with happy talk Newspeak bulletins that are dutifully broadcast by local media outlets and talking heads. It’s all codswallop. As Seattle’s City Journal reports:
“Earlier this month, leaked documents revealed that a group of prominent nonprofits — the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Campion Advocacy Fund, the Raikes Foundation, and the Ballmer Group — hired a PR firm, Pyramid Communications, to conduct polling, create messaging, and disseminate the resulting content through a network of silent partners in academia, the press, government, and the nonprofit sector. The campaign, #SeattleForAll, is a case study in what writer James Lindsay calls “idea laundering” — creating misinformation and legitimizing it as objective truth through repetition in sympathetic media.”
As Charles Hugh Smith writes in his penetrating post, ‘Forced Financial Flight: Fleeing Unaffordable and Dysfunctional Cities’: “Although it’s verboten to mention this in the we’re-so-fabulous local media, many of these high-cost urban regions are hopelessly dysfunctional. Taxpayers have ponied up billions of dollars in new taxes, fees and bond measures, and yet none of the problems that make daily life miserable ever get better.”
Smith goes on: “The forced flight from unaffordable and dysfunctional urban regions is as yet a trickle, but watch what happens when a recession causes widespread layoffs in high-wage sectors and suddenly the hipster bistro that was always jammed is empty, and then shuttered. To replaced the taxes lost to layoffs and closed businesses, the political class will have no choice but to launch a frenzy of higher taxes, fees and surcharges on those left behind.”
Every liberal city is headed toward a Venezuela-style collapse — NYC included — thanks to Marxist cuntface Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her false-front Bolshevik bro Bill de Blasio. A serious brain drain is now underway, too. This story is about much more than just Seattle or Chi-raq’s attempt at inverting social pyramids and instituting égalité, however. What every American needs to understand is that fucktard liberals are currently in the process of eviscerating every major American city by propagating the anti-capitalist microbe, igniting capital flight, destroying urban habitats and the whole human project with it. These Democrat thugs are throttling economic progress by penalizing those who most contribute to it; they seek to sacrifice all to all via their socialist nostrums and neo-Marxist mirages.
Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, NYC, Houston, Denver, Portland and other progressive havens are all careening toward total economic and humanitarian collapse. Leftist policies always breed homelessness, drug addiction, disease and starvation. That’s obvz. In cities like Seattle, the government even pays for needles and drugs to continue propping up junkies and methheads (watch this), while incentivizing vagabonds, refugees and illegal aliens to idle indefinitely on the taxpayer’s dime. If liberals win the White House next time ’round, they will replicate the same insane policies that have stained Seattle and San Fran, putting other US cities, communities and conurbations on par with Nicaragua, Nigeria and parts of Newark. No thanks!
Instead of solving problems, liberals would much rather depict the destitute as “victims of capitalist oppression.” Yet it’s the Dem agenda and their distorted ideals that are creating these apocalyptic environs, killing jobs with mandatory minimum wage hikes, for example, and imposing punitive regulations on small and big businesses alike, causing entrepreneurs to flee plagued municipalities run by political-economic mystics like Cory Booker (Newark), Andrew Gillum (Tallahassee), Gavin Newsom (the governor of California), Rahm Emanuel (ditto Chicago) and of course full-retard bitch face, A.O.C. The confiscatory taxes on personal income and property are also irrational, obviously, triggering a mass exodus of the productive class and deterring new investment altogether. (Please disappear, A.O.C.! We hate your gross face!)
We have to keep cognizant and vigilant that left-wing societies are characterized by authoritarian, spoiled elitists who run roughshod over the scrimping masses while destroying the middle class and everyone in betwixt. That’s exactly what’s happening to the Left Coast and to unkempt cities like Seattle, San Fran, Chi-town and increasingly the Rotten Apple. Just imagine our socialist [dystopian] future that our Dear Dem Leaders are deliberately engineering but sabotaging in the process. Yuk. Foul economic ideas fester and mutate in this bacteria-rich medium of impending crisis. Get woke, ya’ll! Watch this thought-provoking doc. And oppose the Democratic Party and its pernicious socialist substrates.
