Progressive San Fransciso and other similar cities have not only failed to care for the most at-risk individuals living there, they have created a trash-filled public health risk that impacts the entire community. According to activist Scott Presler, the condition of cities like Baltimore and San Francisco are alarming – with trash filled streets and a shocking amount of crime.
Prestler was inspired to visit Baltimore and help clean up the city after a series of tweets by Donald Trump:
“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA……” Trump tweeted in July 2019.
Scott Presler, speaking with Breitbart News, said that reading President Trump’s tweets inspired him to visit the cities mentioned and to help a cleanup initiative. What he discovered when he arrived in the Democrat controlled cities was shocking.
Presler decided to see for himself, tweeting out to others that he would visit the city of Baltimore and help clean it up. From there, a movement grew, and over 170 volunteers pitched in to help. In one 12 hour day, the group picked up 12 tons of trash.
Since that initial cleanup in Baltimore, Presler and his group of Trump-supporting volunteers have cleaned up other cities, noting the shocking conditions and rodent-infested streets. Over 100 tons of trash was collected in the cities of Chicago, Austin, Houston and Los Angeles before 2019 ended.
Despite the amount of garbage collected in the other cities, the conditions in San Francisco were particularly alarming.
“I can just tell you I have been to some of America’s most dirtiest and dangerous cities — I’ve been to Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco — San Francisco was the only city where you had to watch your step because of human excrement,” Presler said.
Actual feces in the streets joined needles, leftover food, trash and other debris when the crew arrived in San Francisco. Presler reported people passed out on street corners littered with used needles and garbage.
“You know you hear things about the ‘poop map,’ and you hear things about the city — it’s hard to believe because so many things are hyperbole,” Pressler said. “I’m here to tell you having walked the streets it’s real, it’s factual.”
Despite the horrid conditions, the team followed through and cleaned the city streets, making the conditions a little better — but the initial problems remain; the garbage and other debris will continue to collect until the city makes a plan to prevent and clean on an ongoing basis.
Presler and his volunteers concluded their work and departed for the next city on their list — Nashville, TN. While poor conditions exist in that Southern city, it was likely a relief to deal with just garbage after the nightmarish visit to San Francisco.
