Not Schadenfreude

We all know that San Fransicko is a festering shithole of disease and filth. More proof keeps coming out every day.

The viral TikTok video posted by freqmeek shows a scene in the dangerous Tenderloin district far worse than most people comprehend. “The anxiety we experience just traveling to work daily in the Tenderloin in San Francisco, California is unbelievable,” freqmeek writes in the caption. “This is overwhelming and mentally draining… not to mention the dangers of the unpredictable environment.”

Let me just be blunt, and say something that many of you have probably already said: THIS IS WHAT THEY VOTED FOR.

Oh, your city is over-run with drug addicts shitting on the street? THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR.

Oh, your city is over-run with crime? THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR.

Oh, your city streets are covered with human feces? THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR.

And more than just that, more than the fact that this is the end result of the choices that you have made over and over and over, any attempt to point out that the policies and the people you voted for might not be the best choice were met with cries of “RACISM” or “(insert pet cause here)PHOBIA” or “BIGOT” or “FASCIST”.

Sane America has been telling San Fransicko for a very long time that shitting all over yourself and hitting yourself in the head with a hammer is not the best way to run a city. The response has been sneering insults from a group of ideologues who are still in control of the city. You want pity from me? Start to clean up your own shit. Start showing me that you understand HOW the city of San Fransicko went from a nice city to a festering boil covered in shit. Because YOU VOTED FOR THIS, which means the situation in which you find yourself is entirely of your own making. I’m not going to clean up anything for you until I’m sure that you won’t shit all over yourself again while calling me a haternazibigot. That’s assuming that you would even allow a white Christian man to come into your city and clean up anything, much less listen to his advice or follow his suggestions on how not to be a festering boil.

“Oh but DAAAAVE…. you’re supposed to be CHRISTIAN! How can you be so full of HATRED for your fellow man”? It’s not hatred. Let me introduce you to the Book of Matthew, chapter ten, verses 13-15.

13 And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

How appropriate to add in the reference to Sodom and Gomorrha.

We can pray for people. We can mourn their loss. But that doesn’t mean we have to enable their behavior, nor support their choices when their choices are detrimental. If a family member of mine got hooked on crack, I would do my best to help them. I would get them treatment. I would find counselors who could help. I’d support them if I had the means.

But I wouldn’t allow them to do drugs in my home. In fact, while they were under the influence, they wouldn’t be allowed in my home. Anyone who’s worked with hard-core addicts will know why. I wouldn’t just hand them money either. I’d get them access to services to make sure they were fed or clothed, but I wouldn’t give them a single cent of real money. One of my good friends had a step-daughter who was addicted to meth. Fortunately, she overcame that addiction, but while she was an addict she would beg her mother for money to buy shampoo. Her mother wisely refrained from giving her money, but instead would go out and buy a bottle of shampoo for her daughter. What she didn’t know is that her daughter would then go out and try to sell that bottle of shampoo in order to get more money for drugs. Addicts care about one thing and one thing only: Satisfying their addiction.

San Fransicko is likewise addicted. They’re addicted to drugs, obviously. But they’re also addicted to the shallow, hollow moral preening ideology that allowed the drug users to run the city. They’re addicted to the political heroin of virtue signaling that allows the criminals to commit crimes right in front of the police without any consequences. They’re addicted to their own hubris and egos that tell them they are just that much smarter, and better looking, and superior to those sister-humping gun-toting bible-thumping Jesus freaks in flyover country and that they don’t need to listen to ANYTHING coming from in-between I-5 and I-95. For a liberal to wake up and realize that the white, conservative CHRISTIAN culture is the solution would require them to hit rock bottom so hard that they don’t even bounce. Especially in a city known for its revulsion of Christianity, run by communists and members of the Cult of the Almighty Orgasm.

They voted for this. And until they hit rock bottom and cry out not just for relief but for penance and then absolution, then they can continue to rot. We have limited energy. We cannot afford to waste it on a population of mentally ill narcissists. Triage in war means identifying who you can help, and who is not going to make it. As far as I can tell, San Fransicko ain’t gonna make it. Save your energy for those who you can still help, and give San Fransicko your prayers.

    I agree just never framed it so well.

    One day the world will be a better place and SF will be under a mushroom cloud.

    Dave, at one time I actually wanted to visit SF.  No longer.  I cannot get past stepping in human crap and watching pathetic humans shooting up and nodding off ya know like NYC.  
    Your thoughts are right in line with mine.  God expects us to help each other but, he is aware that some of the human race are weak or have little or no self respect.  To degrade themselves to this level is a sad sight.  I have experience with a family member having a serious problem with alcohol.  It breaks your heart but, as I learned the hard way – give em a chance and they will let you down every time – broke my heart 3 times.  Make them develop the chance (with some support – not financing) and following through themselves is the only way to overcome this horrible mess.  Likewise, meth, coke and other hard drug addicts must hit rock bottom hard to finally realize they have nowhere to go but up.  

    1. When I worked at the hospital in Seattle we had an addiction recovery unit. Many of those who came to stay for a while in that unit had abused their families to the point where they were disowned. When they sobered up, the horror of what they had done hit them like a ton of bricks. But that didn’t stop many of them from going back to the drugs. People won’t quit an addiction until they WANT to quit an addiction. Just ask former cigarette smokers, myself included. I couldn’t quit until I really WANTED to quit. Enabling their addict behavior only prolongs the addiction, if there is going to be an end point to it.
