Earlier today I wrote about how black website The Root thinks trucks are racist because Trump sat in a firetruck. At the end of the article I predicted that I would soon find a liberal with an even more ridiculous claim of racism. I don’t know if this is worse, but it’s definitely in the same league. A King County Councilman says that a plan to wash shit and piss off of Seattle’s sidewalks is racist. Let me say that again: someone actually believes that cleaning human waste off of a public walkway is racist. It’s nice to see that liberals seriously don’t care about their credibility whatsoever.
The Seattle Times reports that the King County Superior Court is located in the same neighborhood as many of the Seattle’s homeless shelters. Because of this, the area is quite dangerous and dozens of court employees have been assaulted going to and from work. It’s so bad that potential jurors are refusing to come to court out of fear for their own safety.
In addition to the crime, the homeless also bring filth. The sidewalks around the court are covered in in human waste. Judges Laura Inveen and Jim Rogers say that the area around the court reeks of “urine and excrement” and have asked the county for daily power washings of the sidewalks. In addition they have requested that maintenance workers empty public trashcans with reasonable frequency.
You wouldn’t think these would be controversial demands, but you’re forgetting this is Seattle, one of the most liberal cities in the country. Of course making the area cleaner and more sanitary is a problem for liberals because they view any effort to make a place nicer as a crime against humanity. In this case, the problem is racism. Check this out:
Some committee members expressed concern about addressing the symptoms of the area’s problems without getting to the cause. Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.
There you have it: Seattle can’t clean piss and shit off of the sidewalks because it might trigger black people to remember the the civil rights era South. I can only assume that fighting fires is also out of the question considering hoses are often used by firefighters. Water the lawn? Washing your car? Forget about it. You might as well be in the KKK.
Signatures of liberal cities are high taxes, a high cost of living, low safety, and low personal freedom, but now we have to add living in absolute filth. San Francisco is so bad that public urination is corroding street lights and causing them to collapse. Denver just decriminalized public defecation because illegal aliens can’t be expected to use indoor facilities. New York City decriminalized public urination because it’s racist to arrest minorities for taking a piss on the sidewalk. Now Seattle refuses to clean up human waste in an effort to not upset black people.
