On Thursday's episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn said that California’s "crappy" policies are yielding some literally crappy results.
"In just one week last month, the city of San Francisco logged over 16,000 complaints of human poop on the streets," he reported. "Let me say that again. Sixteen thousand people called the city and went — 'There's somebody crapping in the street in front of my house' — in 7 days."
"If you live in San Francisco, help is on the way. Mayor London Breed was 'absolutely shocked' after walking around town and seeing not only all the poop but also all the drug needles ... She decided that she's mad as hell, and she's not gonna take it anymore, so she's bringing out the big guns," he said, referring to the launch of San Francisco's new "poop patrol."
Starting next month, employees of the Department of Public Works will clean piles of poop — predominantly human — from the streets of San Francisco. Each member of California's tax-funded poop patrol will make over $184,000 per year in salary and benefits.
"Keep in mind, this story is not parody. This is true. San Francisco has now allocated over $100 million to combat the poop and needle problem," Glenn said. "Now you might be thinking to yourself, 'Holy crap $100 million sounds like a colossal waste of a ton of money.' Well, remember, it's California, and San Francisco, and $100 million ... doesn’t go as far as it used to."
Glenn said the San Francisco public works budget includes $72.5 million for street cleaning, $2.8 million for washing down vagrant "camps" and removing biohazards, $2.3 million to steam the poop infested streets, $3.1 million for portable toilets, $700 thousand for a 10-member needle cleanup squad, approximately $900 thousand for the Poop Patrol and $12 million for housekeepers to clean homeless encampments.
"So, let me see if have this straight," he continued. "I'm [hypothetically] working in San Francisco. I'm just working at a deli and I'm paying taxes to San Francisco, and I have to go home and clean my house. I'm paying taxes so the people who come and poop in front of my house ... they have a housekeeper?"
"If I may, I’d like to give some advice to this new unit patrolling California’s streets," he offered. "If you would like to clean up all the crap in your cities, I would suggest that you start removing the human poop that you call politicians, the ones that are throwing all this money at a failed city and a failed policy."
