Another iconic American city ruined by Democrat Party rule. Just like New York City. What sane person would work their whole lives to accumulate wealth, only to have it stolen by the Democrat Party? And most people like to live in a safe city, which Los Angeles no longer is.
Here is the problem. Just because people leave blue cities over Liberal policies, does not necessarily mean they will vote Republican in their adopted cities.
REPORT: Rich And Famous Leaving Hollywood ‘In Droves’ Over Unrest, Taxes
By Daily Wire, August 16, 2020
A new report from the Daily Mail claims that the rich and famous, who make up much of Los Angeles, California’s, tax base, are fleeing the city “in droves” over the unrest, coronavirus-related restrictions, and municipal mismanagement that has resulted in a crime wave.
“A makeshift tent city made up of flapping tarpaulins and cardboard boxes surround [Arnold Schwarzenegger’s former] gym on all sides,” the Daily Mail reports of downtown LA. “Junkies and the homeless, many of whom are clearly mentally ill, walk the palm-lined streets like zombies – all just three blocks from multi-million-dollar homes overlooking the Pacific.”
“Stolen bicycles are piled high on pavements littered with broken syringes,” the outlet continues. “TV bulletins are filled with horror stories from across the city; of women being attacked during their morning jog or residents returning home to find strangers defecating in their front gardens.”
A moving company head told the outlet, “there is a mass exodus from Hollywood,” and that “a lot of it is to do with politics.”
“Liberal politics has destroyed this city,” he said. “The homeless encampments are legal and there’s nothing the police can do. White, affluent middle-class folk are getting out. People don’t feel safe any more.”
Like most major cities, Los Angeles has experienced mass unrest since late May, following George Floyd’s death while in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. That has certainly led to a wave of uneasiness among residents, but homelessness has also taken a jump, and, like New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis, and other municipalities, Los Angeles is experiencing an uptick in crime.
This week, Los Angeles authorities announced that the city would experience “rolling blackouts” as a way of saving energy during a heatwave, shocking some residents.
The city’s lack of management has only made matters worse, residents told the Daily Mail.
