You know you’re in trouble now. The status quo to continue? I suspect so.
Hola a todos. Well, it looks like little will change following the death of San Francisco’s puppet mayor, that piece of corporate trash who resided in the upper colon of the Tech Industrial Complex as well as the Real Estate Industrial Complex and also the colon of his billionaire venture capitalist owner the entire time he was unfortunately in office. Yes, el hombre/the man was covered in corporate excrement for years.
At the puppet mayor’s private funeral, his billionaire venture capitalist owner praised his former puppet — who ruined San Francisco — and then he launched into a campaign speech for London Breed, the current Acting Mayor in San Francisco, strongly endorsing her. There were no politicians at the private funeral and people who were there were reportedly aghast that Mr Venture Capitalist would so “go off the rails” and be so tacky as to use the demise of his very willing former puppet to campaign for London Breed at the puppet’s private funeral. It was completely out-of-context according to those who were there who called his actions “totally lacking in class.” Well frankly, that’s what I’ve come to expect from billionaires. They seem to have no taste in anything or even basic sense of what to do in delicate/certain situations. Look at the millionaire insane child-bully residing in la casa blanca/the White House as another example of that. To them it’s all about dinero/money. It was the same way with the puppet-mayor. All about dinero. That’s all these corporate trash think about.
But that wasn’t all that marred the events. At the public memorial, San Francisco’s Director of Protocol — Dahling. “Director of Protocol.” What a snooty and pretentious title — was appointed by the puppet-mayor and she also “went off the rails” with an anti-Asian ethnic/racist slur. Lovely. It would seem that this witch (no disrespect intended to genuine witches) needs instructions in protocol herself. Ms Protocol referred to the former (puppet-)mayor’s “squinty eyes,” when describing a picture of him being shown on a screen, which to at least one member of the Asian community found her remark offensive and derogatory. Ms Director of Protocol (Dahling) said: That wonderful smile [you see there], those twinkling and squinty eyes. Oh good lord, woman. jesus fucking christ. But she’s of that generation where I would expect that. The same older generation where they see nothing at all wrong with anti-ethnic/racist comments like that as well as sexism, misogyny and chauvinism because it’s heavily indoctrinated in many, if not most of them (think: the SEP trash). Some Asians who were there said that as children they were bullied in school and called “squinty eyes.” I’m sorry to hear that. Nobody should be bullied for the way they look. Ugh.
So recently we heard gay guys referred to as “funny” in The Castro by these new southern redneck tech bro assholes, and now we have this piece of protocol trash referring to a politician of Asian ethnicity and his “squinty eyes.” This is happening in San Francisco, people, not some backwater cesspool hick town. Who’s the next group to be insulted with pejorative/outdated language? We’re racing back to the 1940s very quickly these days.
Unfortunately, Mr Billionaire Venture Capitalist’s support for London Breed is not new. (Sigh.) I remember hearing something about that. I do remember hearing when she got elected that she was bad news. I think we can all see where this is going. Back in 2012, the family of Mr Billionaire Venture Capitalist (his initials: RC) and one ally spent roughly $100,000USD in an independent expenditure committee to support London in her race for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Then he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his puppet’s candidacy as well as other supervisor races and even some races for The City’s small local Democratic Party board. Mr Billionaire Venture Capitalist is a former Republican so his interest in the local board was/is to have conservatives on it when the truth be told.
So, even though some of us were delighted to read the news that the puppet-mayor had died and we had fleeting hopes that a change for the positive might be forthcoming for San Francisco — although very doubtful considering the way things go in politics — I don’t think that’s going to be the case. I suspect that anyone who ends up mayor of San Francisco will eat the ass of tech and the developers, and The City will continue to be made into “Anytown USA” which is how one techie described the new Tech Capital San Francisco when leaving The City having had enough of (what they called) “the rat-race tech-grind.” One could engage in wishful-thinking that London would end all corporate welfare (tax breaks for millionaire/billionaire-owned corporations) for these predatory and parasitic techie corporations in The City and that just maybe the phone-zombie and lobotomised Millennial anti-Queer trash who work for them might fuck off and move away. One could engage in other wishful-thinking that San Francisco might somehow return closer to its Bohemian roots before the techie trash barged in and raped The City. But. It looks like little will change with puppet-Mayor Breed since the real mayor Mr Billionaire Venture Capitalist is strongly backing her. He will continue his ownership of The City just like under the previous puppet-mayor. That’s often the way these things turn out these days. There is a mayor’s race coming up next year and others will challenge London but I don’t think any of the challengers will have the backing of a billionaire (should dinero/money and the billionaire be able and allowed to buy the election for London, for tech and the developers). So no need to get all hopeful/excited about any of the challengers. Of the names I’ve heard, they’re all part of the Establishment. Groan. Chau.—el barrio rosa
