Francisco Needs to Leave the US
Left by the Bay...
[Sher Zieve] 2/22/06
there have been many—many—others, one of the most
telling comments as to why San Francisco really and truly needs
to consider officially
leaving the United States of America occurred on last Wednesday. One of its typically
vocal leftist supervisors (there is no other kind in San Francisco) made the
typical leftist, dangerous and anti-US comments.
Leftist Democrat San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval, on Hannity’s
radio program last week, said “we don’t need the US
Military” and “I
am not in favor of a standing army.” Sandoval also said that the majority
of his colleagues think and believe the same way. He and his “colleagues” want
to do away with the US military—altogether. Sandoval said the local police
and fire departments could handle attacks against his city. Huh? With the anti-military
and anti-police attitudes prevalent in San Francisco (the San Francisco Chronicle has
written and continues to write multiple articles blasting the SF police), coupled
with the obvious fact that “local police” and most certainly “fire
departments” have no military training as to how to handle terrorists (I
doubt that’s in their job descriptions), how do the “leaders” in
San Francisco expect locals to protect it? The fact is San Francisco leaders
haven’t even begun to think this out. But, the people living in the City
by the Bay don’t seem to be thinking much—at all—recently.
If they did, they wouldn’t have elected these buffoons. Sandoval also reiterated
something most of us already knew. He said San Francisco is an “anti-war

have the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voting 8-3 to stop
Iowa from ‘setting up shop’ and even docking in “its city”.
Previously, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) had arranged to have the USS Iowa
come to San Francisco in order to be used as an educational tool and to bring
in tourist dollars to the city. Suffice it to say, Sen. Feinstein’s plan
was shot down. Although Feinstein is a liberal Democrat, she is apparently no
longer liberal enough for this ever-moving-further-to-the-left-and-oblivion city.
Besides, with its current “we’re an anti-war, anti-military, anti-police
city” attitude (I think “complex” might be more appropriate),
it’s no wonder that this city views one of the US’ tools that helped
to protect our country and the countries of our allies from destruction with
inordinate disdain. Those making these decisions are comprised of the lunatic
fringes that are, tragically, now in power.
The San Francisco Chronicle, one of the left-wing organs that continues to promulgate
the anti-war, anti-military, anti-police agenda of the far-Left, has attacked
the local SF police with merciless abandon. Instead of using computer systems
to track criminals, the Chronicle has pushed for new $800K computer system that
will track police officers suspected of abuse and the complaints against them.
Out of 2,200 SF police officers, 100 have been identified as ‘suspected
of abuse’. But, the vast majority of these have not even been charged.
Appearing on The Factor, Lawyer and former SF Supervisor Angela Alioto said there
have been “28 prior incidences of excessive force”. Twenty-eight?
Good grief, woman! We’d all like perfection in our lives but, that’s
not possible. Out of all of the police officers’ daily incident calls,
twenty-eight seem beyond laughable—if not embarrassing to even bring up.
However, even far-Left SF Mayor Gavin Newsom has requested the addition of 620
new police officers. Question: Why would any police officer choose to work in
a city that denigrates them and places them on a much shorter leash than it does
its criminal element? Guess masochism is a strong San Francisco trait, too!
To top things off, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has called for the
impeachment or resignation of President Bush. For this left-of-left city, this
should come as no surprise. In response to Bill O’Reilly’s question
to Alioto “Doesn't it make your City look stupid to have the Board of Supervisors
say President Bush should be impeached?” Alioto responded: “You know
that is so San Francisco. With all due respect I wrote the first smoking ban
in 1993 and Ireland just copied us. You will see that the rest of the country
will follow us once we do this. It is extremely important to note San Francisco
believes this is not a justified war. We should not be in Iraq. We should bring
home all of our men and women from Iraq.”
The final questions are “Do we the people actually want San Francisco to
decide policy for the rest of the county—and the rest of us? Or, is it
time that it began its own separate and very-small country that will protect
itself with the infamous Zell Miller spitballs?”
I vote for the latter. What about you? CRO
