San Francisco continues to shine a light on what Leftism does to civilization

San Francisco’s Leftist government has effectively recreated a medieval city, in which the wealthy hide behind gilded walls while the poor wallow in filth and despair.

American Thinker-

By Andrea Widburg

In the 1970s, San Francisco, as was true for most major American cities, had gotten shabby.  While tourists still flocked to the neighborhood directly north of Market Street, where they could find Union Square, fancy stores, and upscale hotels, those who crossed Market Street and headed south found themselves in a four-block-square area of squalor.  There were always a handful of drunken men sleeping it off in the doorways of decrepit buildings, and the sidewalks stank of urine.

By the end of the 1970s, San Francisco began a massive plan to revitalize that area.  It tore down the decayed buildings and, in their place, built the Moscone Conference Center, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Yerba Buena Gardens, and the Metreon theater and shopping center.  It was all beautiful and inviting.  People loved coming to trade shows and conferences in San Francisco, and families happily took their children to the museum, the garden, the skating rink, and the movie theaters.

Things aren’t like that anymore.  While it was once just the South of Market region that was icky because of a few sleeping (or rambunctious) drunks, some stinky pee, and some shabby buildings, tourists are discovering that San Francisco’s entire downtown is inundated with hundreds of scary homeless people, mounds of fecal matter, thousands of discarded needles, and clusters of tents and shopping carts. read more

  4. “If you’re going to San Francisco Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair …”

    Hopefully that’ll cut down on the stank.

  5. Our favorite road trip in my “hippie” days living in CO in the early 70s was to CA. Seemingly, no matter where you went in that state, it was Teh Awesome.

    The Sierras are even more killer than the Rockies. Central CA has non stop gorgeous spots like Yosemite, Monterey(riding up the coast on my Norton once is still a memory of a lifetime), the huge redwoods. We had friends in SoCal and that’s amazing too.

    And the cities, whoa, compared to my horsetown Denver, what a difference. And at the pinnacle was San Fran. We liked what the writer described as an area of squalor as well as the Wharf.

    What finally killed my taste for the city were the increasingly frequent PDAs(to put it mildly) by the homos. I can walk past drunks sleeping it off in pee smelling doorways to get a meal in Chinatown or catch the Airplane at the Fillmore. But dudes getting ass fucked or blown right out in the open in some places was it for me.

    It’s only gotten a 1,000x worse since. I was in Oakland last year and even after being prepared for it, the amount of people living in shacks & tents up & down the streets and under ramps & highways was unreal.

    You can’t ask for a more informed picture of what REgressives want for all of us.

  6. Time for vagrancy laws. I am serious. If you don’t have the skill set to produce enough income to live there, even with roommates, then move somewhere where you can afford a roof over your head. The people who can afford to live there shouldn’t have to put up with the crap ( or piss).

    If I lived there I would be working on a slate of candidates to remove the current leadership. Even if they can’t be removed, you can still get in their face. Make them defend the indefensible.

  7. MMinLamesa…The Sierras are even more killer than the Rockies. ??? I have lived in both and would say they are equally awesome.

  8. Take a snowplow- just ram thru all of the shit, tents, carts, etc.

    Scoop it all into the middle of a large intersection and set that shit on fire. Burn it in mass quantities with the fire department near by to control the blaze.

    Problem solved, and for cheap too.
