Wealthy San Francisco Liberals Fight Homeless Shelter Being Built Near Their Mansions
(Newswars) - A wealthy liberal neighborhood in San Francisco whose residents cast the most votes for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election is fighting against a proposal to build a new homeless shelter near their gated mansions.
Mayor London Breed has sponsored legislation to fast track a homeless shelter that would house 200 people. However, wealthy liberals living in the affected area have set up a GoFundMe to stop the project which has already hit $80,000 of its $100,000 target.
The GoFundMe page cites concerns over “public safety, drug use, and other problems that a large shelter may bring to the community,” as well as the fact that “a third of the homeless are drug users and some are sex offenders”.
Records show that Mission Bay, one of the areas most heavily targeted by organizers of the GoFundMe, was the most pro-Hillary neighborhood in the entire city of San Francisco, laying down 1,680 Clinton/Kaine votes out of 1,893 ballots cast.
The resident who started the GoFundMe is from South Beach, another area that heavily voted for Hillary Clinton.
Wealthy residents even turned out to protest against the homeless shelter last month, citing worries about “crime and sanitation”.
The homeless shelter would be located a stone’s throw from Google’s San Francisco offices and Gap’s headquarters.
The story once again illustrates how while liberals will virtue signal all day about their concern for the poor and needy, when it comes down to actually doing something about it, they either go AWOL or advocate for the exact opposite.
