(Tea Party 247) – California has become a cesspool of homelessness, drug addiction, disease, and violence thanks to liberal lawmakers and their “woke” policies that favor illegal immigrants over actual American citizens. There are literally thousands of people living in the streets but lawmakers are more concerned with pandering to the LGBT mob and flooding the city with illegal immigrants, who suck taxpayer dollars up, in an effort to stick it to Trump.
Now, it looks like this is starting to take a toll on the state’s ability to attract tourism and business. San Francisco is losing out on an annual technology conference that has been held there for more than 20 years. Organizers of the conference cited “poor street conditions” as one of the determining factors for the change.
OpenWorld, a tech confab presented by Oracle, has been hosted in San Francisco since 1996, but will be moved to Sin City in 2020 for at least three years.
The conference has become one of the biggest events of its kind in San Francisco, and its departure will reportedly deal a $64 million blow to the tourism and hospitality industry there.
“Oracle stated that their attendee feedback was that San Francisco hotel rates are too high,” the San Francisco Travel Association (SFTA) explained to its members in an email seen by CNBC. “Poor street conditions was another reason why they made this difficult decision.”
“The estimated economic impact of each of the above is $64,000,000, a huge loss for our city.”
OpenWorld reportedly attracts over 60,000 Oracle customers and partners every year, and the decision to pull the convention out of San Francisco has raised questions about the decaying city’s capacity to host major events.
“The move has prompted concern over whether the city, facing soaring hotel costs and homelessness, open drug use and incidents of violence on the streets that alarm visitors, can hold onto the big-business events that have long been a mainstay of its tourism and travel industries,” the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The SFTA says it is “sorry to see Oracle OpenWorld move to Las Vegas after more than 20 years in San Francisco,” but claims it will book alternate events to “fill that space in the future.”
Imagine that. Liberal policies resulting in the decaying of a once great American city. Whoever could have predicted such a demise? This is no small loss either. $64 million is a major, substantial loss and will only add to the city’s already deep-seated problems.
We aren’t talking about citizens just throwing litter in the streets, San Francisco is seeing high levels of homelessness, with around 7,500 individuals falling into that category. Of those, many of them are using the streets as toilets for their human excrement while many others are throwing needles and other drug paraphernalia all over the city. Add to that high rates of violent street crimes and it’s really no wonder why OpenWorld has decided to move to Las Vegas.
The blame doesn’t just lay solely on the extreme left-wing politicians who control the city and ruin everything they touch. It falls on the voters too, most of which care primarily about social issues specifically those relating to the LGBT agenda and illegal immigrants.
The voters of San Francisco would rather continue fighting for “equality” for LGBT folks despite them having all the rights of all other American citizens over actually taking a good, long hard look at the policies that have been destroying their own city. They’d rather put illegal immigrants on a pedestal while their fellow citizens live and die in the streets. That’s completely backwards.
This is the liberal dystopian future of America if we fail to pushback against leftist politicians and their wacked-out agendas.
