A King County Seattle council person is suggesting that cleaning the sidewalks of urine and feces left over by homeless people is a ‘racially insensitive’ act which drums up imagery of clashes between police and black activists during the civil rights era.
Larry Gossett, the council person in question, has stirred a level of controversy that extends far beyond the bounds of liberal Seattle, Washington.
Katherine Timpf of The National Review had this to say concerning the matter.
“Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing? I see people power-washing bodily fluids off of the streets of New York City (including streets outside of courthouses) all the time, and I have not once seen any of them being called racist. … What else are you going to do — not wash them? Because I really, really reject the idea that leaving sidewalks covered with human bodily waste is the less offensive move in this (or any) situation.”
Seattle’s homeless population is one of the largest in the country considering the city’s ‘attractive’ socialist overlay which lessens the value of work and promotes utter laziness to it’s inhabitants.
Seattle made headlines when it announced that it would be the first to boost minimum wage to $15 an hour. The city also brags that it is run by self declared socialists like Kshama Sawant, who wishes to increase taxes on the city’s most productive in order to pay out millions in welfare benefits to ‘disadvantaged minorities’.
Larry Gossett and the rest of Seattle’s liberal base have another thing coming if they think a lack of cleanliness is good for their city. Hepatitis and other sicknesses will no doubt spread until ultimately, the entire city’s population is deader than a hammer.
