Rock bottom: Exasperated citizens of woke San Francisco fighting back

Empower Wisconsin | Sept. 25, 2019

The woke citizens of San Francisco have for too long awakened to spent drug needless, debris and human feces littering their streets.

Now some of the woke are waking up and taking back their city, as obtuse government officials fail to meet San Francisco’s homeless crisis.

Neighbors in the city’s Mission Dolores neighborhood have been forced to position boulders on sidewalks to keep droves of homeless from camping out.

“They’ll shoot up and stay overnight,” neighbor David Smith-Tan told KTVU-TV. “A bunch of my neighbors, we all chipped in a few hundred dollars and I guess this is what they came up with.”

Apparently it’s working.

“Since the rocks, it has helped,” neighborhood resident Ernesto Jerez told KTVU. “It’s something. We’ve got to do something. I feel like there is nothing being done.”

Oh, but there is.

San Francisco’s socialist-leaning government has dumped a fortune in taxpayer money into more public toilets. A six-person “poop patrol” team was recruited to clean up human waste. And still the Golden Gate City remains a wasteland — in the excrement sense of the word.

The boulder fix isn’t likely to last long. Woke city officials are demanding them removed, calling the rocks “anti-homeless.” Of course, they kind of are. That’s the point.

It all underscores that many of San Francisco’s denizens are tired of the politically correct as their home hits rock bottom.
