One of the problems with leftist utopias is that there tends to be a lot of human excrement on the streets and sidewalks. I don’t know why progressives love poop so much, they just do. The leftist city of Denver has moved to decriminalize public defecation because it was unfair to illegal immigrants to expect them to use a damn toilet. The problem is so bad in leftist San Francisco that there are apps to help people avoid stepping in the excrement that city’s leftist Government has encouraged. In Seattle, all they wanted to do was clean the human excrement off the sidewalks around a city courthouse.
This offended a Seattle city councilman because… I am not making this up … the use of pressure washers to clean human excrement from the sidewalk reminded him of fire hoses being turned on civil rights protesters in the 1950’s.
Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.
If that’s true why doesn’t he shut down the fire department? I’m sure fires can be put out with holistic healing, chanting, and hugging.
The area is also known for rampant crime, assaults, and drug abuse… right next to a courthouse.
Leftist utopia. A city that can’t keep sh-t off the public sidewalks, can’t stop assaults and robberies next to a courthouse, but has plenty of time and money to spend on rainbow crosswalks to feed the egos of one of the left’s targeted political demographics.
