Skip to comments.Prior to debate: Get those homeless people away from the cameras!
Posted on 12/20/2019 3:39:19 PM PST by rktman
Last nights debate was held at Loyola Marymount University, located in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles, down near the beach. Venice is famous for a number of things, including their boardwalk, outdoor Muscle Beach gym and several performing arts centers. But Venice has also become famous for something else. Large encampments of homeless people pitch their tents, cardboard boxes and other makeshift shelters on the sidewalks. Residents frequently complain about the rising crime rates, trash and human waste in the streets.
But that changed yesterday, at least for a little while. With the debate train rolling into town along with hordes of mainstream media cameras, the city apparently didnt want visitors greeted by such an unsightly mess. So dump trucks and city workers were dispatched to load everything up and move the homeless and their belongings away from the prying eyes of the national press. (KFI Radio, Los Angeles)

I love how the city said it’s “routine.”
“Residents frequently complain about the rising crime rates,”
Pretty simple actually. AFTER they built the TRAIN from downtown L.A. to Santa Monica beach, everything went downhill. I know MORE than a few Venice resident who will state the same thing.
With public access, you bring all these scumbags who get on the train for free.
A deliberate effort to minimize the Q movement.
Belief in Q by the homeless is near 92%.
“Loyola Marymount University, located in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles, down near the beach”
Loyola Marymount is in Westchester, a rather suburban part of LA, set off by itself. Flo and Eddie hail from there. Between there and Venice is the tony area of Marina Del Rey.
Why would they want to relocate the homeless? Wouldn’t they like to showcase them, use them to blame Trump’s policies for homelessness?????
I thought the same thing LOL. The funny thing is that Google has an office there (I’ve been inside). Around is “normal” yet they have the security to kick out the homeless who even TRY to camp outside late at night. Yeah, i saw it more tan a few times. My bud has a house close to it..
I thought the California Democrats solved the homeless problem with unlimited social spending and taxing the rich. Isn’t their success why they want to do the same with the entire country?
Fake news. The university is miles away from Venice. Still, Venice is experiencing a growing bum problem. Too bad, it was a beautiful beach community.
***So dump trucks and city workers were dispatched to load everything up***
Like a scene from SOYLENT GREEN. Scoops and dump trucks.
Hm. Loyola Marymount University is located in Westchester, about 1.5 miles southeast of Venice. The university is not on the beach and it is not in Venice.
I wouldnt want to touch any of that stuff. Gross.
Proves it could be done permanently if they wanted to.
No kidding. Bad enough to encounter some dog poop and have to clean the bottom of your shoes. But a scene of contaminated human garbage and human feces on a sidewalk, would make me gag at the thought of attempting to clean it up.
Goddamn hypocrits. Better to look at what they hath wrought.
Internal polling suggests a number closer to 188%.
Right, not exactly near Venice Beach.
(except as the crow flies, which in LA can be a long way.)
the city says they can’t do anything about the homeless, but, schedule a political event, and the city gets rid of the homeless encampments in less than 4 hours. Go figure.
Finally - the wry sense of humor shines through.....good one.
The "National Press" knows the 'homeless horror' is caused by misplaced BS 'liberal compassion' so the homeless didn't have to be moved - the press would have walked over them without seeing them.
