The Democrat Cities: San Francisco

with 6 comments

San Francisco is one of the richest and most beautiful cities in the world.

Or at least it was once beautiful. In terms of buildings, houses and nature’s geography it still is. And it’s still rich.

But humans, who once contributed greatly to that beauty through those houses and the rest, are now making it ugly, and I’m not talking about the homeless themselves but the “leaders” of the city who have created this hell-scape.

Watch this 13 minute video on the homeless situation in SF, especially the interview of one of those leaders, Hillary Ronan at 8:16. It takes her not one minute to start blaming taxes, Federal Housing policies, and “Republican ideology”.

As the interviewer points out, San Francisco is the most unequal city in the world. What he does not point out is that the last Republican councillor left office in 2000: the last Republican mayor in 1964.

If the Democrats are still implementing Right-Wing policies then they must be the most mindless puppets in the history of the Left.

Then there’s the related matter of humans crapping on the streets of SF.

The San Francisco Street Crap Map App

By the end of 2019, these factors, plus the housing shortage causing soaring rents, resulted in a rather astounding survey produced by the city administration itself:

35 percent of San Franciscans consider leaving for good, according to city survey

As usual the survey was dismissed as fear-mongering: why the city administration would want to indulge in such was not a question asked. What should have been obvious was that with such feeling about, a tipping point was approaching and the only question would be what it was.

It turned out to be COVID-19, or more precisely the response of SF and California government to the virus, with Lockdowns the now-standard answer. And so…

Real estate inventory change from February to July 2020, in metro area and city proper.

The 2020 San Francisco exodus is real, and historic:

A new report confirms what many have been talking about for weeks: There is an exodus out of San Francisco, and the numbers are staggering.

… inventory has risen a whopping 96% year-on-year, as empty homes in the city flood the market like nowhere else in America.

As the article pointed out this cannot be blamed on the local tech giants of Google, Facebook and their like switching to people working from home. The nearby San Jose metro area has not suffered any such exodus.

No city with such beauty, effectively sitting beside a 21st Century industry, will suffer the fate of Detroit, but unless the Progressive Democrats who dominate the city begin to dump their cherished Left-wing beliefs, ideas and policies about how to run the place – in terms of housing, policing, regulations, homelessness and drug use – all these problems will continue to worsen and the city’s slow decline will continue.

Nobody wants to live in a city like this.

  1. Thats what I love about the Left…….

    The ability to take something that worked, like San Fran or Chicago or New Zealand and in a very short time, less than 3 years in some cases, Fuck It Up Beyond Belief.

    Still you pays your money and you get what you deserve, or in NZ’s case the majority paid their money and got a surprise…..but still what they deserved.

    • Hasn’t Chicago always been FUBAR? Especially “in the good old days”. Al Capone, anyone?

      Sorry, Tom 😳

    • Scarface was an equal-opportunity guy who corrupted both Republican and Democrat as I understand it, but allegedly he was most successful under the “watch” of Republican Big Bill Thompson, one of the most corrupt American mayors…ever.

      So maybe the Daleys were an improvement. Indeed you probably would have approved of how the protests during the1968 Democratic “the whole world is watching!” Convention were…addressed, Rossco.

      Did I also mention the Chicago Cubs didn’t win a pennant for 70 years, or a World Series for 108?! 😳😂

    • HEY!

      Stop trolling. Will have something on Chicago in a bit. Different story: similar fucktarded policies.

      And the San Francisco Giants were what? 56 years? Keep it local.

      Actually, why not make these comments on the most recent actual Chicago thread!
