Every voter in America should see this video before the midterms
It's no secret that California's once-beautiful "City by the Bay" is now overrun with drug addiction, mental illness, and homelessness problems that have only gotten worse after decades of progressive Democratic leadership.
Michael Shellenberger, author of "San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities" and lifelong Democrat, has been working to save his home city from ruin by shedding light on California's ever-worsening nightmare which progressive Democratic elected officials have not only failed to address but have actively enabled.
He recently took to Twitter to post an absolutely shocking thread of videos that show how bad things have really gotten in San Francisco and should be required viewing material for all voters ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
And, for a little reminder of how we got to this point:
\u201c\u201cIf we\u2019re being honest, they pay you to be homeless here\u201d\n\nThey also let you sell fentanyl to children \u2014->\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
Democrats say they are helping homeless people who suffer from mental illnesses and drug addictions with their progressive policies, but here's what the people they are supposedly "helping" have to say:
\u201c\u201cListen to the homeless\u201d\n\nYes, let\u2019s\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
And here's what California's kids get to walk through on their way home from school:
\u201cHere\u2019s what schoolchildren see:\n\nhttps://t.co/YAp0u9Sitz\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cHow do you get civilized people to dismantle their civilization? \n\nMostly by asking for an inch, and taking a mile. \n\nConsider a few examples of how it\u2019s been done.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
Preach, Shellenberger, preach!
\u201cPoint out the abuses in psychiatric hospitals. \n\nAsk that they be replaced with community-based clinics. \n\nThen, demand that they be shut down *before* you create the clinics. \n\nAfter you have some clinics, make them optional.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cDefend the \u201cright\u201d of people with schizophrenia to live out of grocery carts, sleep on the street, and become addicted to hard drugs. \n\nWhen anyone questions whether that\u2019s humane or safe, call them a fascist.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cPoint out the problems with police departments, jails, and prisons. \n\nAsk that they be replaced with social workers, cashless bail, and voluntary drug treatment. \n\nThen, demand that they be shut down *before* replacing them.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cDeny and downplay rising crime as long as possible before excusing it as necessary to social justice. \n\nWhen anyone questions whether such policies are fair or safe, call them a racist and fascist.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cPoint out the problems with homeless shelters. \n\nAsk that they be replaced with free, unconditional housing. \n\nThen, deprive the shelters of sufficient funding to operate safely and with sufficient beds.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662731942
\u201cAfter you have some shelters and housing, make them optional.\n\nIf anyone suggests it\u2019s not safe to let the untreated mentally ill and drug addicts sleep outside, denounce them as a fascist and racist.\n\nRepeat these steps with every institution needed for civilization to function.\u201d— Michael Shellenberger (@Michael Shellenberger) 1662732331
