Rich White San Francisco Liberals Totally Supports Illegal Immigrants. It's Just They Want to Keep These Dirty Foreigners Out of Their Own Neighborhoods.

Liberals totally love minority immigrants -- as long as they keep among their own kind.

SF supports immigrants -- just not into our neighborhoods

By Vincent Woo

San Francisco is one of the most progressive cities in the nation, especially when it comes to national immigration. We believe so much in the natural right of people to join us here in America that we fought to keep our status as sanctuary city even in the face of being federally defunded for it. We pride ourselves on our rejection of plans to tighten immigration controls and deport undocumented immigrants. Yet take that same conversation to the local level and all bets are off. City meetings have become heated, divisive and prone to rhetoric where we openly discuss exactly which kinds of people we want to keep out of our city.

This is an ethically incoherent position. If we in San Francisco so strongly believe that national immigration is a human right, then it seems strange to block migration into our own neighborhoods.

Consider the San Francisco Board of Supervisors' decision to challenge the environmental review of a proposed housing project at 1515 Van Ness Ave. Despite the project's plan to rent 25 percent of its units at a below-market rate, many members of the neighborhood preservation group, Calle 24, expressed anger that the project might bring tech workers into the Latino Cultural District.

Or that members of the Forest Hill homeowners association opposed a project that would build affordable housing for seniors and the formerly homeless on a site now occupied by a church. One of the grievances aired was that it might bring mentally unstable or drug-addicted people into the neighborhood.

Both of these groups are reacting to the threat of change. In both cases, residents took it as a given that they were within their rights to control who lived in their neighborhoods.

Conservatives see national immigration as a privilege to carefully dole out. Liberals see immigration as a human right that needs to be protected. San Francisco progressives view living in certain neighborhoods as a privilege to be earned, and see nothing wrong with preventing certain groups of people from moving in, a traditionally conservative view.

Working theory: All people are actually nationalists. It's just that New Yorkers, DCers, and SFans have decided their "nation" is their own provincial dirty city.

Not even city, their tiny little neighborhood.

San Francisco is ground zero for the raging hypocrisy on this due to the geography of the area limiting expansion. Add in that people want to keep the "character" of their neighborhood, by which they mean they don't want anyone tearing down a row of Victorian homes and putting up a 20+ story apartment building and NIMBY on steroids.

53 I agree with the premise but I'm confused by this article.

"The project might bring tech workers into the Latino Cultural District."

Is "tech workers" some kind of code for "illegal immigrants" ? And I'm pretty sure a neighborhood called the "Latino Cultural District" in a place like San Francisco is going to already have plenty of illegals.

"One of the grievances aired was that it might bring mentally unstable or drug-addicted people into the neighborhood."

Again, what does this have to do with illegals, specifically?


NIMBY is real but this article doesn't make the case.

89 None of the big time white celebrities whining about leaving America said they wanted to go anywhere brown people lived. Their generosity and compassion is always at someone else's expense.

All people are actually nationalists. It's just that New Yorkers, DCers, and SFans have decided their "nation" is their own provincial dirty city.

Its not just a theory, its well established. Years ago I wrote mocking people who yelled "I love New York" while scorning people who wave a flag.

I'm a land use attorney. You would not believe some of the wealthy property owners who vote for all the "right" candidates and issues, and then think that that's going to cut them a break when the Board of Stupidvisers votes to tighten rent control or make property ownership more onerous. Nope.

I could go on with stories. It's hilarious, and sad. It's balanced by the generally great weather (our lows in winter are generally in the mid-40's and summers have highs in the 60's - 70's), the weed, especially the edibles, are primo, the cultural and recreational opportunities are outstanding, etc. It's the politics that suck.

123 The Aztecs in Zod's region know that Zod shops for limes at the Bestway because they're much cheaper than the Safeway limes (and they're juicier; doubleplusgood gin and tonics). The Aztecs resent this because they know my custom indicates to the Bestway owner that his limes are likely underpriced if the blancos are coming to his store to buy them.

Zod resents the Aztecs for walking, zombie-like, across four lanes of busy Frogger-like traffic (with kids) rather than crossing at the light. Karma is, I think, balanced.

I don't really know how all these things go together, but if you're pro-immigration, pro-Muslim immigration, against hateful (true) stereotypes, demonize Russia, and are buy into the fake news/Russia hacking stories, then I don't really know in what sense you're fighting against the dominant, Vox News forces that are constantly the pushing the mainstream to the left. The vast Atlantic to Vox circle jerk also encompasses WSJ, Weekly Standard, NRO, etc. They all read the same stuff and think the same thoughts.

172 Heh - same thing happened in Brooklyn Heights (BH). The most ultra rich and ultra liberal neighborhood in Brooklyn ( for a place with almost no parking there sure are a lot a Priuses on the street there - or as I like to call them: "Piouses").

Anyway - they pushed heavily to build a park a long the waterfront facing Manhattan, where there used to be abandoned warehouses - complete with playing fields and basketball courts - well - with the new basketball courts came a whole lot of folks with, shall we say, a darker skin shade than those living in BH, who were playing to the wee hours. The presence of this, shall we say, "element" so horrified the liberal all-inclusive (almost all white) gentry of BH that they pressured the police to severely restrict access to the basketball courts and harass the ghetto kids from going there.

I would say that the severe hypocrisy of those who want to install a party into power that, literally, is for using government coercion to forcibly "integrate" neighborhoods, while forcibly preventing integration in their own, surprises me, but, well, it doesn't.

Art is not a 'need'...

Its a Luxury.


So the question becomes should the Government use the power of

Taxation... ie the THREAT of putting me in Jail, to take my money for

someone's Luxury... a Luxury I will never enjoy...


Posted by: Don Q. at December 16, 2016 11:56 AM (qf6WZ)


Art can be a personal luxury, a private indulgence, sure, but public

art is intended as a means of civic expression by which people are

inspired and united by a common national identity and shared ideals.

Two different things.

____________________________________________

OK
throwing a flag on this one. The government buying art to decorate a
public space or building is A-OK and should be done sparingly and with
guidelines that ensure the tastefulness of the art that is being
installed.

The government "funding the arts" i.e. providing
block grants to artists, television stations, theatre/ movie production
companies etc. is always completely wrong in every way shape and form.
Period. The government should never interfere with the arts and vice
versa; which is what always happens when money gets involved. The
government then puts itself in charge of deciding what "art" is worthy
of being funded and which is not - which is wrong on so many levels. Any
artist ( and I am one in my spare time - performing arts, musician,
acting, musical theatre) should abhor such a thing. Further, the Federal
government taking money away from say, Utah, to fund performance art in
New York City strikes me as the ultimate in wrong.

Trump
should end this ridiculousness immediately and defund the CPB and all
"arts grants." When the left howls simply say: when I have finished
ensuring that the VA is overhauled, staffed and properly working to give
care to our wounded vets I may think about giving money to "artists"
and rich television production companies (but don't hold your breath) -
until then GFY."

Apartments allow a much lower barrier to entry.

Neighbors going nuts because apartments will hurt their property value, trying to get special zoning to kill the building.

Why should I be able to zone your land into 0 value (or at least prevent you from doing what you want with it) just to protect my 500k home? (FWIW, my home is not 500k, I live on the other side of the highway which cuts values in half for reasons I cannot explain.)

And per JackStraw, it's really not just the entertainment value of the long-overdue enforcement of federal immigration law against openly lawless cities and states.


If the new administration doesn't completely exterminate this "sanctuary" lawless idiocy, it'll be a disaster outweighing anything else they can accomplish.


Because, just as with mass illegal migration as a whole, if you don't deal with it decisively - in this context, after this election - it instantly becomes an untouchable inexorable part of the landscape, with all the disastrous consequences any intelligent person easily recognizes.

I was up in Vancouver in May. It was getting to be like Hong Kong, even crappy houses being snapped up and renovated by Chinese companies.

I will say, I overheard more than one bar conversation that was surprisingly pro-Trump. The place leans Left, pretty hard I'm sure, but there were folks praising his business sense. Dunno if it has changed now that he's going to President.

242 I went to a high school orchestra recital once. The music teacher got up on stage (looking like a dirty hippy), and talked about what a great high school it was. Football, academics, whatnot. After each announcement ("we are number one in track and field this year!") everyone cheered. She finished with "and we are officially one of the most diverse schools in the country!" My first thought was "wow, that must be tough. Lots of kids with lots of different backgrounds and languages". I thought she meant it as, look at what we have achieved despite this difficulty. Then I noticed about half the audience was cheering, wildly, enthusiastically. They took what she said as another achievement in and of itself. Diversity itself was the goal. Just like a winning football team, a good orchestra, or solid academics, good diversity was important.

The other half of the audience, including many of the obviously minority parents, looked around baffled. What are they cheering for? The line about diversity? Wha...?

This was the first time I realized "these people are insane and may well kill us all."

Gee, anyone wonder why? Oh - an issue that directly negatively affected many of his constituents (parents to typically high-achieving youngsters) came on the screen. These people, who are fine with every other stupid, destructive, racist, idiotic, unconstitutional thing the Dems can dream up - were OUTRAGED that their little snowflakes might be edged out for admission by Juan or DeMarcus.


Oh - and Yee now sits in a federal pen (well, I think he got hard prison time, anyway) for pleading guilty to wild, serious felonies including - not making this up - international illegal arms trafficking. Oh - and lastly, Yee of course was among the "leaders" of CA's idiotic Dems in harassing firearms owners and infringing their constitutional rights, for no arguable public purpose.

298 San Francisco progressives view living in certain neighborhoods as a privilege to be earned, and see nothing wrong with preventing certain groups of people from moving in, a traditionally conservative view.

Well ... half the reason for wanting to make money is to be able to move into a good neighborhood. When idiots then want to force bad elements into your good neighborhood - that you earned and paid lots of money to get into - that's a big problem.

BTW, the most restrictive housing on Earth is to be found in New York City co-ops. They are the last places in the US that have retained the natural right to decide who can or cannot live in their little "village". In fact, they go well beyond the natural right of property owners to decide who they want to sell their property too (in the "legal fiction" because co-ops are not "property") and it is the co-op board that gets to decide on every possible transfer. New York City co-ops can deny sales to anyone they choose, for any reason.

You won't find places much further left than many of the exclusive New York co-ops and you won't find any place more restricted. Personally, I support their right to manage their properties as they see fit (and those who do buy in do so knowing that they will have to have the board okay any later transfer of the property).

317 BRAC = Base Realignment and Closure, an '86 congressional process for closing military installations.


But actually, it's the tremendous reduction in force structure since '91 that has denuded CA of most of its bases/military personnel.


San Diego has gained from every round of BRAC (no new bases - the existing ones are yuuuuge and can accommodate lots of internal growth), in terms of jobs and permanently stationed personnel. I imagine that central coastal VA has too. And a select few concentrations of Army activity in the south.

321 AS has been said, liberals love taking the credit but none of the consequences.

For them, there is no consequence to illegal immigration--they're not taking their jobs, not living in their neighborhoods, not going to their schools, none of that. None of the Mexican Snow on the streets they drive down.

So, when they see the rest of the nation opposed to illegal immigration, they see it through their lens.

And the only reason--if there are no consequences to you personally--to oppose it then is: Racism.

They just lack any ability to see beyond their own world and realize there are legitimate, non-racist reasons to oppose illegal immigration.

But: They've called you a racist and that makes them better than you.

This is what happened to California as a whole in the 1990s. Irony of Cold War victory. It wasn't that the Left moved in, but rather that the Right moved out.

Another irony of San Francisco: During WW2, then Korea, then Vietnam, dishonorably discharged gays were shipped back to Fort Mason or Hunter's Point, or flown back to SFO and dropped off. Disgraced, then often faded into the woodwork of San Francisco--until enough of them could politically take it over in the 1970s.

332 >> Well ... half the reason for wanting to make money

There's two parts to this.

One is that much of the parts of San Francisco occupied by the Google Hordes (Western Addition, Duboce, parts of the Mission, etc.) was once blue-collar middle-class housing, then through the '60s and '70s turned into gang-infested shitholes, and over the past decade has been gentrified back to white-collar middle-class housing. The blacks were priced out a decade ago (a bit of irony in that it took a black mayor's development plans to chase all the blacks out of SF) and Section 8ed off to the East Bay, the Hispanics are feeling the pinch now, and they don't like it.

The other part of course is Section 8 and federal AFFH and the state's attempts to densify and urbanize the suburbs. We'll see if this continues with Trump in office.

All hours of the day, trash piled on the sidewalks. Gutters always have trash in them. Sidewalks that only see cleaning when it rains. And don't get me started on the moslums who block the sidewalk to pray to their moon god.

That's not gaining--that's being spared. Meanwhile, the rest of the state's bases closed.

In some ways this was proper--the Soviet threat diminshed, and the bases in lefty districts rightfully got the axe first. I remember then Congressbitch Barbara Boxer upset that Hamilton Air Force Base was closing. Which was odd, because those personnel were about the only conservatives and patriots left in Marin County.

San Francisco was grubby and in places dangerous from the '70s into the later '80s, at which point it started to clean up and the more violent elements began to decamp from the city.

Yeah, ten years is a good threshold for the downhill trend, once a lot of the dot-com money had vaporized and the last vestiges of sane government had been purged.

You are still less likely to be robbed than you were 25 years ago, but the odds of a car break-in or having to walk through human excrement from passed-out druggies spiked substantially with the state's cram-down of criminals to county jails in response to the Federal court-ordered reduction in the prison population, and then Prop 47 a few years ago, and it's gonna get worse after the next one passed this time.

The park service "restored" Crissy Field to a wetland. I thought that was stupid until I saw the end result. I can think of a few other areas around the bay to turn into such park space.

376 Lewis Grizzard used to say to such complainers in Atlanta, "Delta Is Ready When You Are."

He also had nuclear war evacuation instructions for Atlanta:


-Everyone on the north side of town, get on I-75 north and keep driving.


-Everyone on the south side of town, get on I-75 south and keep driving.


-Everyone that moved to Atlanta from Up North, get on I-285 and keep driving.

377 "Van Kong". When HK reverted to the barbarians in 1997, the non-commie Chinese real estate rush to Vancouver was already in full swing, no?

Indeed. Of course, we used the term "Hongcouver". Vancouver used to have a vibrant and exciting Chinatown, with many great restaurants, and fantastic neon signs. It has faded to a mere shadow of its former self, and the city itself has become Chinatown. You don't have to trek to Pender and Main to dine at a classy Chinese joint; you can go to 49th and Arbutus, and avoid all the downtown traffic.

Certainly not an issue of racism, though. Most of the newcomers are admirable people, but there are so many wealthy newcomers, with so much money, that native-born Vancouverites (including those of Chinese ethnicity) are being priced out of their homes.

Not "NIMBY" but "YIMBY": Yes In My Backyard.

I reside in San Francisco. Delighted to report that term-limited Communist David Campos was so badly ridiculed he retaliated by withholding approval for housing dev a coupla blocks from me.

Under review was another condo property. Campos insists on all low-income. Others told him to stuff it.

He literally turned red. Which is fitting.

While Chrissy Field beach is a great place to turn the dogs loose (more dogs than people under 18 in SF, by the way), I liked having the open airfield for public festivals, as opposed to a tidal lagoon, although they did also make lawn space.

380 Woo is an elitist among elitists. Like everyone else, he chooses to point out the dust speck in other peoples' eyes while ignoring the lumberyard in his own.

Have you seen his eyes? Not more room for a mote in those suckers.*

381 In his "History of the American People" Paul Johnson wrote that San Fran was already well established as a "Sin City" by the late 19th century, with lots of brothels (some of which, even then, catered to homosexuals).

San Fran and New Orleans were always places where behavior that would get you into trouble in Iowa or South Carolina would be, if not encouraged, ignored.

The area of San Fransisco was known as the "Barbary Coast". It was destroyed in the big quake, and San Fransisco was improved (and IIRC generally Republican friendly) until the hippies came and wrecked it.

382 It is refreshing to see the white people (see the photo) taking a stand. You go, racists! Sorry that Hillary will never be President, but good for you for standing up against the tyranny of the progressive mob.

In fairness, the post WW2 affluence caused families to move out and down the Peninsula, to where bigger homes and bigger yards were available. "Do you know the way to San Jose?" wasn't just a pop song, it was a reality.

And then the hippies came to the Haight, and the gays came out of the closet.

384 From Nanci Griffith, singing about getting back to her native Texas:


Back in the 80s my brother and I videotaped a backyard BBQ at a small house in Houston. Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett were two of the people singing and playing guitar on the tape.

386 This goes along with pretty much every "humanist" I've ever known - and in the circles I walk in, I know more than a couple.

They all love "humanity", truly.

It's just actual people they, literally, loathe.

387 What's the difference between a developer and an environmentalist? The environmentalist already has his cabin in the woods.

388 These are the same folks who want Hillary installed as prez because she won the popular vote. California by itself gave Hillary the popular vote, even though Trump carried the total in the other 49 states. So the position they're defending is that the vote in California alone should put Hillary in the Oval Orifice. Sorry folks. We have an Electoral College that evens things out. This is a Republic, not a democracy....

390 'Working theory: All people are actually nationalists. It's just that New Yorkers, DCers, and SFans have decided their "nation" is their own provincial dirty city.'

The trouble with this is that it makes "nationalist" simply meaningless. If everyone is "nationalist", then no one is.

Better to stay sane, and keep words functional, distinguishing between nationalism and localism. In the early 19th C - and before - few would have made this mistake. The French Revolutionaries were certainly nationalists, which is one reason the Vendee and Toulon rebelled.

(I'll grant you have some good company here; Chesterton slipped on this several times, and one of Orwell's worst essays makes just this mistake; he'd have better reread his own on politics and the English language.)

391 It gets even better: ask someone in Marin County why BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) was never built into Marin County. Any guesses why? It's to keep the poor unwashed masses out of their idyllic liberal enclaves of Mill Valley, San Rafael, Sausalito, etc.

And you can be sure there ain't no resettlement of Syrian refugees in Marin and I would be shocked to hear that SF has taken more than a few.
