Former San Francisco mayoral candidate: Years of liberal policies have caused homelessness 'tragedy'


https://www.foxnews.com/media/former-san-francisco-mayoral-candidate-homeless-crisis

Liberal policies in San Francisco are inflating California's homeless crisis and driving longtime residents out of the city, former mayoral candidate Richie Greenberg said Thursday.
Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with co-hosts Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt, Greenberg said that as the state government has moved farther and farther to the left over the years -- adapting socialist ideals -- the homeless population has only grown.


"It's just a tragedy now," said Greenberg. "But this is San Francisco. This is not anything new. This is classic San Francisco, where the downtrodden are celebrated and coddled."
"Little by little, we see the whittling away of law enforcement, and the norm now is having the homeless, the drug addicts, and mentally ill roaming the streets," he told the "Friends" hosts.


In the latest effort to combat the growing homelessness in San Francisco, a city resident recently used a plywood wall to block an alleyway known to be used for drug deals and defecation by the homeless. After a few days, the blockade to what’s known as the “Ingleside Path” was removed after several complaints.
City records show the neighbor had permission from the San Francisco Public Works to build the wall, the San Francisco Examiner reported.
Greenberg says that a major culprit is the non-profits -- in tandem with government funding -- that are based in the city who are "getting hundreds of millions collectively" to cater to the homeless community.


"I believe, and many of us believe here, that they are [all] enabling...homeless to move here, actually," he said.
"So, how could it be that year after year -- even after throwing hundreds of billions into the budget -- that the population of homeless is going up? And that's clearly because others are moving...from other states, other cities, to take advantage of the liberal policies here," he concluded.
"It looks like California is doomed," Kilmeade observed.


And there we have it folks - when in doubt, ALWAYS follow the money!

A major contributor to the homeless is the "humanitarian and local church food programs". Nothing, and I mean nothing attracts and keeps the homeless around like "free food". And these well-meaning, but misguided, people take their food to the homeless sites and areas. Talk about catering to the "problem".

The town about 3 miles from mine has a wagon that feeds the homeless in the downtown park. They tout their “success” of the program because they are feeding more people than ever. The down side is that the town has more homeless people than ever too! Success?

And are they all homeless or merely out grabbing a free meal at the expanse of others?

We have a church here. They have a food bus. It's called Gods chuck wagon. They serve a dinner. A lot of people line up for the free meal. I couldn't do that. To much self pride.

Again though, how many who go there are truly homeless and starving versus just lazy ass bastards going for something "free"

Definitely freeloaders. I don't think we have many homeless. We do have moochers who bounce from house to house. One who claimed to be a witch. Threatened to put a spell on me. Because i would not give her a place to stay. HAHA i said you go right ahead.

Degradation of our local and therefor national Standards of Living was just part of Obama's desire in his efforts to "fundamentally transform America". To humble us and bring us down to the 3rd World Level of Living Standards. We were headed in that direction in the late 1980's (migration of runaways to the Pacific Northwest - Portland/Seattle) with the "grunge culture" who represent all that is wrong today with the homeless lifestyle. Obama's administration was very simpatico with those people as their futures and plights would make for good, solid, dependent, DEMOCRAT voters for free social programs. Both Bernie and Hillary are very much aware of this. Well, all the DEMOCRATS are "woke" on this subject.
