Hola a todos. Well, these days, one can lie about running for office and ruin a once-proudly Bohemian international city of global communities in a matter of less than two terms with a Class Warfare Agenda, and then nearly become a saint upon death. Loco. This disgusts me, and I don’t quite understand the phenomenon of extreme ass-eating, revisionist history and stopping short of bestowing sainthood status on some very mediocre basura politician upon their death. One reads extreme revisionist history eulogy articles of how a corporatist who was owned by the parasitic and predatory Tech Industrial Complex and the Real Estate Industrial Complex et al was the greatest of politician after he ruined a city and allowed his billionaire corporate owner to dictate policy during his tenure. He raped the city and turned it into a conservative city for the super wealthy. Of course the monied-interests and Democratic Party Establishment/Oligarchy career parasitic politicians all pile on with their accolades of praise consisting of lies, disinformation and half-truths about this scum of the Earth politician’s political life. You know that when conservative Dianne Feinstein calls someone “an excellent mayor” you’re in trouble. Corporate sites and so-called “progressive” sites — the latter being nothing but fronts for the utterly corrupt and imperialistic Democratic Party — describe the deceased politician as something other than what he was: Corporate basura. Even the so-called “progressives” pile on claiming they’re in tears and grief-stricken and how “he was like an uncle to me.” Really? Other so-called “progressive” politicians go on about how “he was such a nice person to hang out with and go have a beer with.” WTF? How can anyone have a beer with some corporate scum who is ruining your city? What is wrong with you? That speaks to one’s lack of personal genuine-progressive principles and convictions. And so-called “progressive” politicians like that — I call them the fake-progressives — are no different than all the other trash. Then there’s the gullible fake-progressive with a website — who is nothing but a shill for the right-wing Democratic Party — feels the need to speak kind words about the deceased and how the deceased supposedly cared about the poor and homeless people. Just the opposite was the reality. How could that fake-progressive forget that the deceased supported the draconian sit-lie law criminalising homelessness in his city and wanted homeless tents removed from the sidewalks? That shows a care for the homeless and poor in your fucked-up mind, Mr Fake-Progressive? WTF is wrong with people? Answer: What is wrong with people is this widespread thinking in our society that one must only speak pleasantries/lies about the person who died. One is supposed to rewrite their history. I guess I could never be a politician because I couldn’t conceive of partying and hanging out with a piece of corporate trash who is ruining my City. That would go against my convictions. But clearly, the Cesspool of PoliticsTM is just a game to most people wallowing in it and it takes a special person with a tongue for rank sewage to be in politics. When one reads these gushing eulogy articles about this supposed-stellar politician’s time in political office — who some people pump up and make him out to be like a rock star — these articles have no basis in reality. And one name is conspicuously omitted from these articles: The name of his billionaire venture capitalist owner. Not a word about him. I wonder why that might be? Then, to continue pumping up the deceased scum of the Earth politician, they have him “lie in state” where the sheeple pass by his rotting corpse. They call it, “Showing their respects.” How does one exactly “show respects” by passing a dead body in a quickly moving line? “Showing their respects” is a sanitised cliché for “Showing their curiosity” over death and to see up close what the deceased looks like in death. Many people will say, “Oh he looked very good.” Does it matter how he looks when he’s dead? What is this fascination that the public has with rotting corpses? People are so fascinated with it. Sick people obsessed with death and caskets enjoy doing that type of thing of “Showing their respects.” And all of this for un alcalde? I don’t think they even do a lying in state for governors or US representatives or senators. Isn’t that usually reserved for presidents? The local oligarchy thinks he was that hot, do they? How about some reality: At one point, el alcalde was being investigated by the FBI for corruption. I’m sure that would be mentioned as part of the memorial service, aren’t you?
It’s a shame that our culture has such difficulty with reality and the truth. Even in death, one is in denial and feels the need to rewrite the history about some piece of trash politician who was nothing like what he is made out to be in death. I’m of the opinion that the truth about someone should be told even after their death (such as here, and here and here, here, here and also here), which I know is not popular in our septic culture.

Update: I’ve seen pictures of this lying in state nonsense. A US-flag draped casket. Why a US flag-draped casket? The city’s flag would have been more appropriate. He wasn’t a member of congress. I saw Pelosi looking like she was trying to give the appearance that she was in tears standing before the flag-draped closed casket. Of course Scott Penis, that corporate, conservative, parasitic politician I refer to as The Holy and Indivisible Trinity (since that’s how his rabid conservative/redneck minions saw him when he was in office here), was there in conservative all-black. Looking like a Millennial Zombie (he wasn’t on his phone for the first time I should add). He’s also known as Mr PrEP. Every time I have the misfortune of seeing his face he’s in this city. What’s he doing here? He’s supposed to be in Sacramento at his new job, ruining things at the state level, like he did here. A group of cops were bowing to the casket. Some guy was genuflecting to the casket. (roll eyes, oh good lord people!). Two giant US flags hanging up by cranes outside city hall. Why? He wasn’t a politician at the national level. In fact, I suspect most politicians at the national level couldn’t tell you who he was. He was a politician in a major US city. Again, shouldn’t the flag of the city be hanging instead, if one feels the burning needs to hang up any flags. I saw no long lines of people from the pictures. It looked like they brought in city workers to give the appearance that someone was there and cared. The impression I get is that very few people in this city even give a fuck about this man because of his rampant ruining/gentrification of this city. They couldn’t care less about him, because this guy was not very popular.
