Maybe all of those celebs should look at what’s going on in their own backyard before lecturing folks in Alabama and Georgia.
Hollywood celebrities and a few production companies have decided that they are going to try to apply pressure to governments in states that pass pro-life laws by depriving them of their esteemed presence.
Ok, then. Maybe y’all can step just outside of Tinseltown and hang back in Los Angeles with the ballooning homeless problem, feces on the streets, rats, and medieval diseases.
Seems like a fair trade.
The shocking conditions in downtown Los Angeles reveal just how much of a sh*thole the place has become, all because of “compassionate” leftist policies.
A decision made by the city council to not cap the total amount of property that homeless people could keep on Skid Row was announced last Wednesday. Some city officials saw the move as wrongheaded and that it would “only perpetuate the public health crisis that already exists” on there.
The streets of Skid Row have become home to around 4200 people in tents and shantytowns spread across 50 blocks.
…councilmen Joe Buscaino slammed the decision, saying: ‘The settlement will only perpetuate the public health crisis that already exists in Skid Row and will set a precedent for the rest of the city that will normalize encampments.
‘The city is sending a clear signal that we are turning the sidewalks in Skid Row into free, unlimited public storage, doing a disservice to the residents of Los Angeles, especially to those living on the streets.’
Images from the downtown area show trash piling up as workers struggle to keep the area sanitized. They are pictured wearing face masks among the dirt and grime.
The place is filled with tents, furniture, and shopping carts, along with clothing, garbage, and human feces spread all over the sidewalks and the streets. As well as lots and lots of needles. You can’t get a plastic straw in L.A. but you can get free needles for drug use.
Recently, a Los Angeles police detective was diagnosed with typhoid fever, a disease that was all but eliminated in the United States in the last hundred years. Most people that contract typhoid fever do so in underdeveloped nations where contamination of the water supply can occur. Several other officers that work in the same Central Division station are showing symptoms of typhoid fever as well. The Central Division polices downtown Los Angeles, including the increasingly filthy Skid Row area.
Dustin DeRollo, a union spokesman, said officers who patrol Skid Row ‘walk through the feces, urine and trash’ – conditions that ‘should alarm everyone and must be addressed.’
The police union has demanded better protective equipment for officers and called for the station to be regularly sanitized.
The Police Department said exposed areas of the Central Division were being disinfected and officials were reviewing the state’s ‘concerning’ report that found health violations at the station.
The building lacked an effective extermination program and had ‘rats/rodents, fleas, roaches, flies, gnats, mosquitoes and grasshoppers,’ according to the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health’s May 14 report.

There is also a growing rat problem, and those rats carry fleas that carry disease. Los Angeles has no plan to control the exploding rat population.

It looks (and smells) like a third world sh*thole. But hey, if you’re billing yourself as a “sanctuary state” I guess you need to make it feel like home to everyone fleeing third-world sh*tholes.
Check out these photos of Skid Row:

"Bubonic Plague Likely Already Present In Los Angeles, Dr. Drew Says." Downtown LA has homeless encampments, rodents, human feces, and discarded needles. We already have endemic typhus and tuberculosis. Civilization isn't breaking down, it is being intentionally broken down. pic.twitter.com/qHSzFHxoa9

Watch Laura Ingraham talk to Dr. Drew Pinsky about the medieval illnesses that are reappearing in Los Angeles:
But “progressives” are already working their Media(D) magic to blame the potential return of bubonic plague on… climate change.
So now we blame it on climate change… Forget the huge volume of homeless living in filthy, inhumane situations is Democrat-controlled hell-holes. https://t.co/oixPBVPoLM

The city has decided to reverse the decision on allowing homeless people to keep as many possessions as they like on the streets and will remove large items like sofas and refrigerators. That will just remove some of the trash but does nothing to combat the root of the problem.
What is the root of the problem? Many say it’s access to affordable housing. What good is affordable housing if people choose to live on the streets?
Leftists claim that you can’t force people to get treatment for mental illnesses or addiction, and this is a large cause of homelessness.
Why not put the money into treatment instead of cleanup? Because it’s not “compassionate.”
Is this compassionate to you?

And of course, Governor Gavin Newsom is touting that Cali is the progressive utopia.
Around the world, we are a beacon of light.
And for an America divided? Mark my words, California – we are the light at the end of the tunnel. #CADEM19

Ummm… no. Y’all literally have a homeless epidemic, sh*t and disease-infested rats roaming the streets and you’re lecturing the rest of America on how to live?!
Get your own mess sorted out and we’ll talk.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
