The Cancer of Class-ism and Class Warfare in San Francisco
It looks like the corporatist elitist parasites (the “haves”) around here have finally closed the plaza so that the homeless (the “have-nots”) have no place to rest, sleep and/or hang out. From what I’ve observed about the way things work around here, I suspect the closure of the plaza was led by one of these useless, busy-bodied elitist barrio groups who serve as self-appointed authorities on all matters and who claim to know what’s best for The Castro. The group (which shall remain nameless) that I have in mind is run by an excessively overpaid la bruja who, from what I’ve read, doesn’t even live in San Francisco. La bruja lives in Pacifica on the San Francisco Peninsula. So why the fuck does she give a damn about anything in the city/The Castro when la bruja doesn’t even live here? But that is so typical! Meddling in a place where she doesn’t even live for a bloated paycheck. Why doesn’t she keep her elitist ass in Pacifica and stick her busy-bodied nose into Pacifica and fuck things up there? I can’t stand these elitist corporatist basura currently running this city and these conservative busy-bodied neighbourhood groups who eat the upper colon of the corporatist parasites of the San Francisco Oligarchy. They are the same conservative prudish scum who have sanitised The Castro and tried to turn it into Walnut Creek. (Related: Naked muchachos in San Francisco – Page 1). Many, if not most, of the conservative, prudish and hateful/anti-homeless residents of The Castro live under the illusion that they live in the fictional hamlet called “Mayberry,” or they’re determined to turn The Castro into “Mayberry.” If they want to live in “Mayberry” why the fuck don’t they just move to “Mayberry,” if they can possibly find a place like that somewhere? From what I’ve seen of these rabid conservative residents they are afraid of their own shadow.I talked with someone who went to a neighbourhood meeting about this plaza. You couldn’t pay me to go to one of these meetings considering what I know about the conservative pretentious/elitist residents around here. I can’t imagine being in a room with them. I can’t stand to be around conservative elitist snots whose not-so-covert agenda is to hate on the homeless using newspeak. From what he told me, this meeting was exactly as I would expect it would be. He said they spoke “in code” at this meeting. They claimed this wasn’t about the homeless—then that means it was/is about the homeless—and that’s exactly what he said. He said they used code words such as “anti-social behaviour” taking place in the plaza without using the word “homeless” as their way of scapegoating and hating on the homeless while pretending this wasn’t about the homeless. These hateful Castro residents are a piece of work. They’re very transparent in their hate of the homeless and consistently so; they’re fooling no one. From what he said, the room was full of elitist, lobotomised residents of The Castro who only care about themselves (self-entitled homeowners?) and who do not possess the capability or humanity of putting themselves in anyone else’s position. In their self-entitled minds, it’s all about them. According to him, he sensed that most residents want the plaza closed. But the attention-craving conservative corporatist politician of the San Francisco Oligarchy who pretends to represent the residents around here (that piece of work certainly doesn’t represent me)—and whom many Castro residents worship and adore and see as The Holy and Indivisible Trinity—doesn’t want the plaza closed. But to me and others, it looks like the plaza is already closed whether it’s officially closed or not. The plaza area (closed 17th street at Castro and Market), which was later named the Jane Warner Plaza, was a good idea initially until they made it clear—again by using newspeak—that only certain people were welcomed there (the unspoken part: of a certain income bracket). Fucking class-ism. Then I remember when they posted this long ridiculous list of things that one could not do in this plaza. [roll eyes]. Ugh. It was at that time that I said: Just shut the thing down. Why even have it?! These pretentious, class-ist people around here are a fucking piece of work. They live in a major city but they have this hamlet/small town mentality. MOVE! Go to your utopian “Mayberry,” if you can find it somewhere. I don’t know whatever made them want to move here in the first place. So they could change it to the way they wanted it? If so, why didn’t they just stay where they were and change that place? Sigh. And it’s not as if these la basura want the homeless problem solved. No, I’ve heard no one say anything about that. They just don’t want to see the homeless and mentally ill. These pretentious class-ist snots think they are above seeing, hearing or being around homeless and/or mentally ill people. These la basura belong in their own gated community where all these snots afraid of their own shadow can live together, maybe on some island somewhere. I’m not saying that a pristine island should be overrun and ruined with pretentious “people” like them, but maybe then they would be satisfied, no? Or what they then start whining and moaning about each other? Humans! Ugh.
Today, the Jane Warner Plaza looks like the images shown on this page. It is now mainly cement with some planters and the Muni (our public transport system) F line street car running through the middle of the plaza (as has always been the case). There’s nothing in the plaza now. I don’t know where the conservative Castro and this city expect the homeless to go? All this city does it to move the homeless from one place to another. Loco/crazy. Well, expect more homeless people here and throughout this country as the divide between “the haves” and the “have-nots” continues and increases. Chau.—el barrio rosa
