Democrat Leftists Are The Worst People In America

Ugly, hateful, vile, racist hypocrites are all words I would use to describe Democrats. Check out the picture taken last week of Larry Elder in California:

If he were a Democrat this picture would be the lead on every left-wing news program for a week and on the front page of every leftist rag like the WaPo. Has a single Democrat condemned this? Not that I have heard of. That person with the gorilla mask is lower than whale excrement on the bottom of the sea. That picture captures the “tolerant” American left in all its glory.

Democrats Fail Economics

Two separate articles. In the first one several California cities enacted “hero pay” rules for “front line” workers in such places as grocery stores during the Wuhan Flu epidemic, giving these workers $4 to $5 more per hour, effectively increasing the already excessive minimum wage in the state. You see, thanks to California’s generous labor laws workers were already making $18 to $24 an hour. Anyone who knows the first thing about the grocery business know it operates on razor-thin margins. The result of this state sanctioned pay boost? A number of large grocery chains, including Kroger closed multiple stores and let go of workers. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs overnight. The kicker? This only applies to the big retailers. That makes sense.

More California cities experiment with “hero pay” leading to predictable results (hotair.com)

In the second article it is pointed out that there is a nasty little rider attached to the government’s just passed “Covid relief bill” that prohibits states from cutting taxes. What does this have to do with Covid relief? So bad is the situation in Democrat states and so bad is leftist economics that they actually have to try to punish well-run conservative states. I suspect this will be challenged in court and struck down. It is a gross violation of Federalism.

Democrats slip sneaky little rider into stimulus bill to forbid states from cutting taxes – American Thinker

California Is Collapsing

Highest poverty rate in the nation. #4 in homeless rate. Millions without power. Highest taxes in the nation. Filthy cities. Third-world diseases. Corrupt state-run boondoggles. These are just a few of the symptoms of a leftist-borne crisis. Leftist politicians and special interest groups are destroying California. I have traveled to many places around the world, including Bangkok, Jakarta and Sao Paulo. What you see there is fabulous wealth and very close to it abject poverty. Right now I would say California has much more in common with those cities and countries than it does its fellow American states. California is failing and it will soon be a crisis.

Leftist Utopia California Leads US in Poverty Rate

It is shocking that the home of Silicon Valley and much of the nation’s GDP is tops in poverty rate, but this is what happens in most leftist Utopias: you have a few haves and many have-nots.

Three key policy decisions made years ago in California has caused this. First, California has a huge entrenched government bureaucracy that has created incentives to put and keep people on assistance: that is what big-government does. Next, California has millions of undeveloped acres of land but has become beholden to rich, corrupt environmental groups and thus has some of the most restrictive land-use regulations in America. The result is very expensive real estate. Finally, these same corrupt environmentalists have successfully enacted draconian “clean” energy regulations, making the cost of energy higher in California than any place else in the country. For people on the lower end of the income spectrum housing and energy make up their biggest expenses and in California those are unaffordable. Economics 101, and California is failing. Failed leftist policies always hurt the poor the most, and California is no exception.

Leftist Strongholds In The US Are Disintegrating

California sounds like it is becoming, say Mexico or Indonesia, where the elite “haves” are insulated from the public at large and where protected class status allows you to do whatever you want. Case in point – the illegal alien can dump toxic waste or burn garbage with impunity, while the law-abiding citizen is regulated, fined and hassled to the point of leaving the state. Or the homeless in San Francisco can defecate on public streets while children are fined for having “unlicensed” lemonade stands.

Meanwhile, Chicago is sadly devolving into something akin to Venezuela, with a high body count and black thugs torturing a helpless white man.

This is the consequence of rampant leftism, political correctness, no respect for law and order, and complete cultural breakdown.
