Skip to comments.San Francisco Is Such A Dirty Dump The Tourism Industry Is Begging The City To Do Something

If what radical leftists and environmentalists say about conservatives is true - that they dont care about the environment and that they are polluting the entire world - then it would seem that more conservative areas of the country like Texas and the Midwest would essentially be gigantic trash heaps. On the contrary, following that same logic, areas of the country that are controlled by leftists should be clean as a whistle. Why, then, are tourists currently begging the liberal city of San Francisco to clean up their streets?
It's true - San Francisco is quickly turning into a dump, with people injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, tent camps and garbage lining the sidewalks, petty theft running rampant and even human feces scattered across the city.
"The streets are filthy. There's trash everywhere. It's disgusting," argued Joe D'Alessandro, president of S.F. Travel, the city's visitors bureau. Ive never seen any other city like this - the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs. How can it be? How can it have gotten to this point?"
It's worth noting that Joe D'Alessandro's job is to essentially promote San Francisco for the purpose of bringing in tourists, so the fact that he is openly speaking about how bad the city has gotten in terms of garbage and homelessness is truly telling.
"We cant be quiet anymore," D'Alessandro continued. "We've got such a glorious history, such a beautiful setting, and the fact is, were letting it all slip away into this quality of life now that is not good for anybody. We've become complacent, and I think weve taken this as a kind of new normal, and it's not. It's wrong, and we have to do something about it."

In San Francisco, the last Republican mayor was George Christopher in 1964 ...
It is horrible. Even the decent areas reek of urine. I’m shocked there hasn’t been a cholera outbreak or something similar.
I just don’t see any reason to ever visit that city. The negatives far and away outweigh any positives.
Democrat planned garbage dump.
And note, people blame Reagan for closing mental health institution causing this problem when the fact of the matter is the ACLU sued claiming that no one who is mentally ill and is not a violent threat can be detained against their will in a mental health facility. Because they won this suit, most of the ill left these facilities leaving them virtually vacant and ripe for closing. Not Reagan’s fault and certainly not a directive from him.
I believe the term is “shithole.”
If you’re going
to San Francisco
Be sure to wear
Some flowers in your hair
Because it might mask the stench of all the gross people living on the street.
A perfect example of a liberal progressive sjw pc no borders utopia.....come on down tourists!!!!!!
You know your city is a shirthole when the government has to hire people to go out and measure the shirt on the sidewalks.
Democrats should never govern.
“I think weve taken this as a kind of new normal, and it’s not. It’s wrong, and we have to do something about it.”
Small business is absolutely dependent upon tourism in SF. If they act in concert, they can fix it.
Ads. Political funding.
And not least, sheer bravery.
How can it be? How can it have gotten to this point?
Decades of liberal rule. And I bet you're one of them, Mr. D'Alessandro.
Besides, Obama or Clinton could have opened them back.
I do not know what he is talking about, there are plenty of places worse.
I live in Freetown and there are areas here much worse than downtown San Francisco. But we get no tourists there either.
That photo tableau looks like a painting of a city after some devastating event. Is it Puerto Rico after the hurricane?
New Orleans after it’s own hurricane? Maybe a certain part of Chicago right after Memorial Day.
Amen to that; I have countered the libs’ “Reagan closed the mental hospitals” argument with those same facts for many years. People so easily forget the ACLU’s constant whining about “warehousing the mentally ill.”
