Wealthy Democrats are full of compassion, empathy and love for the poor, the disadvantaged and the homeless. “Just keep them out of our neighborhoods,” they say. “They’re dangerous.”
A council meeting in Millbrae, California became rowdy as residents came out in droves to protest a hotel being turned into homes for the homeless, according to reports
Political Director of Peninsula Young Democrats, Jordan Grimes, posted multiple videos on X, formerly known as Twitter, of residents loudly booing and jeering at the county executive. “The crowd is rowdy and angry, booing the County Exec until he’s drowned out completely,” Grimes wrote. “Multiple times.”
Multiple residents asked the county executive questions and expressed frustration over the proposal, asking how they could stop it from happening. “Most of the residents that filled a community center room to its more than 300-person capacity as some were trying to listen in from the huge overflow outside,” NBC Bay Area wrote.
Grimes also reported on San Mateo County Executive Mike Callagy fielding questions from frustrated residents. “County Manager Callagy, do you care about our children?” one resident asked. “They are our future.”
Another resident asked why the homeless people can’t be housed “in the rural areas of California instead?”
